This dude has way too much time on his hands but hey, I love all that conspiracy stuff, a good late night browse Paul Really Is Dead: Undeniable Proof That Paul McCartney Was Replaced With A Lookalike.. This one’s up there but no where near as good at the Pink Floyd Synchonizations.

Jamie and Heather get married

One of my high school friends was getting married on a farm in Vermont. It was a mini-reunion of sorts.

The weather was spectacular, blue skies, great friends new & old, good grub and drink, and a funky local band set the stage for a perfect afternoon.

The kids had a blast.


Yours truly reads down the list of reasons why Jamie should marry Heather

Family in Vermont

After a week in Hawaii where we hooked up with the rest of the Takei Clan including the Great Grandma Nagao, the 84-year old matriarch – we hurried back home for a quick overnight rest and then hauled up North to Vermont to witness my old high school roommate restate his vows to his lovely wife Heather. Here we are all dressed up for the show at an old church right down the road from the Kidder farm.

Luau > Vermont

We just got back from a week and a half holiday that took us to Hawaii (where we whooped it up at the Royal Luau with Great-Grandmother Takei) and Corinth, Vermont where we danced under the stars in celebration of Jamie and Heather’s wedding. Jamie Kidder is my old high-school roommate.

Blackout

They’re calling it the largest blackout the Northeast has ever seen. The Blackout captures the event from the perspective of moblogs all across NYC where thousands were stranded without a way to get home.

Safe in the Factiva offices, all we noticed was a brief flickering of the lights and a sev alert email calmly notifying us that because the entire eastern seaboard was kicked off the grid we were now running on back up generators.

Gross National Cool

Do you think Japan is Cool?

“Japan is reinventing superpower—again. Instead of collapsing beneath its widely reported political and economic misfortunes, Japan’s global cultural influence has quietly grown. From pop music to consumer electronics, architecture to fashion, and animation to cuisine, Japan looks more like a cultural superpower today than it did in the 1980s, when it was an economic one. But can Japan build on its mastery of medium to project an equally powerful national message? ”
