Top of the morning to everyone.
Went to the UNR baseball game after work yesterday. What a disaster. It was 20-3 Fresno Bulldogs leading going into the bottom of the 9th. UNR scored 7 runs to make the final 20-10.
On the way home last night I found a California King snake lying in the middle of 6 Mile Canyon Rd, below Virginia City, Caught it, took it home and we're gonna take it up towards Como to release it this afternoon. I'm wondering if it was someones pet. It didn't/hasn't tried to get away, I've taken it from it's temporary housing a few times this morning, hasn't tried to bite me, it's not aggressive.



Nice looking lilac there ygmir. We've had a lilac plant for 13 years. It was given to us by an elderly woman who lived in Carson City. It bloomed the first year and hasn't since. It hasn't even grown. It's about 18in tall and just as wide. It sheds its leaves every fall and, like now, it has new ones for this summer. :?

I just received a PM from Captain Goddammit, lamenting how quiet it is on ePlaya. So I will do my part to liven things up:

Look at the 'Supplier's List", Savannah.

Between the two of us, we have more access to neat gems, curios, and objects d'art than Tiffany's and Sotheby's combined. They don't deal with us as often as we might like, because yggy's charm, dedication and hard work, combined with my enthusiasm, training, and hard work drives the price that the big companies have to pay well above what they're willing to pay for some items.

Negotiations don't work when yggy parks War Rabbit outside the door. They look at the pair of us and have to pay tribute money.

Too bad they only did one set and some generic bluegrass band took up the remaining time.

Doing pretty well! I won't be on the playa this year (Hawaii instead) but maybe next year.
What's your outlook on making the trip?

We were looking good to make it earlier, but then schedules have sort of changed. It's a bummer because this would be our ten years of burning, but well... It's not a done deal yet so we'll see.

LeChat!!!

and Karine!!!.. and Bin!!!

Now that's a picture full of awesome!

I see you're having a great time. Well deserved to be sure.

I've been up to my ears with work and stuff, but things are slowly returning to a more comfortable pace here.
Looking forward to summer and being outdoors more ..and stopping by the Bar here more often too.

Happy bicycle day, everyone!

Hooray for meeting up and hanging out, and bonus points for pics! The last couple days have been a little blurry, but productive. I was able to carve out some time this past week to spend some quality time in the studio doing a bunch of pre-production work with a bunch of tracks, and then spent a big chunk of yesterday playing around to see what would come of it. Many hours (and drinks) later, things were banging along nicely. I think I ended up recording a set that I'm pretty happy with, but I haven't yet had the chance to give it a good listen (we've been running around most of the day).

I'd been thinking about maybe going out to a fancy bicycle day event at the Bentley Reserve tonight, but the universe is aligning in a different direction. Aside from being beat after a long couple days, it's a spendy ticket and we just splurged quite a bit on the hardware for my prep cart and some shelving. No regrets there, I can tinker around with an app to run a light show from the new set and have my own dance party in the loft :D

Have a great night and/or holiday!
