Flaming Lotus Girls and The Serpent Mother

I worked on The Serpent Mother for Burning Man 2006. I can’t tell anymore if that was a long time ago or not. Regardless, here is a little tour…

Switched Away from GoDaddy.com DNS Hosting

As I said I would, I cancelled my Godaddy.com DNS hosting because I found out about their long string of misogynistic advertisements. See my conversation with Godaddy folks about this. While they don’t run such ads any more, it is important to not encourage any company to benefit from such practices. They got big because of their negative publicity and that is not right.

Here is the Godaddy ad that broke the camel’s back.

My web hosting is through Dreamhost so I switched to Dreamhost DNS.

Our Wedding Website

For Megan and my wedding, we created a nice website connected with our invitation.

(you may want to right-click to open these images in a new window because they are very large)

The wedding invitation was pretty rad. Lasercut and etched and cut in stainless steel by MyMetalBusinessCard.com, designed by our friend Sarahjane Bernhisel, owner of Bison Paper Company.
