Today I bought a stainless steel toothbrush

It’s always fun when you’re getting into a new sport. This time, it’s TIG welding. Darn it if I don’t know what every item on this shopping list is :-)

“I’m a Frog”

47 minutes and 3 seconds into the 1993 film Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie is the most touching, beautiful moment I’ve ever encountered in a film.

Watch it for yourself:

The moment in high resolution:

The whole scene:

Dulcea, Master Warrior of the planet Phaedos: Adam? Adam, what’s wrong?
Adam: I’m a frog.

Thanks Maura!

Burning Man Article with Serpent Mother in Business 2.0

In the July 2007 (volume 8, Number 6) issue of Business 2.0 there is an interesting article about Burning Man. It’s cool that there is a photo of the Serpent Mother at the top of one of the pages.
