I tell ya, Yggy, it's 'feast or famine' up there. If it's not so dry the trees might spontaneously ignite, then people are starting to get worried about the snowpack
In all seriousness, I hope it all adds up to 'just right' and you don't end up with flooding and slides come springtime. In the meantime, bundle up and enjoy the heat and warmth the Hofstove puts out.
Ouch, Elorrum! Hopefully the healing process is quick, and the dull throb falls away in short order.
Last night Pandorra and I got to attend an awesome talk and Q&A at SF MOMA from King Leo (co-founder of Disorient) about his upcoming Bay Lights project. This is the thing I'd thought was a couple weeks back (the calendar appt she sent me was for the wrong day hehe). It was really fascinating. He told us and showed us pics and footage from his first experiments and art pieces with LED's to his first big installation in NYC to the Bleeker street subway station and Madison Square Park Buckyball to the big National Gallery thing in DC, and on to this upcoming Bay Lights project. And very cool to see the making of/behind the scenes stuff, like designing specialized clips (to hold the lights/wires to the cable) to power and controllers and all the other steps he and the project have come thus far. He and his team are in the final testing/debugging phase now, with the official launch on March 5th. From there it's going to run for two solid years, so it'll be there for the america's cup races and all the other fun nonsense that goes on in SF throughout the year. It's an exciting and inspiring project, if you get within striking distance of the bay area in the next couple years try to make it to either Treasure Island (where Bliss Dance is installed) or Embarcadero near the Ferry Bldg (where the Raygun Gothic Rocket Ship is installed) sometime after dusk, I think those are going to be great vantage points.
