Meanwhile, in Syria

Warning: Graphic images.

Go watch the new Queer Eye!

I really enjoyed the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy series (2003-07). Not only was it groundbreaking to have an all-gay cast, I picked up a lot of grooming and cooking tips.

Netflix has a new Queer Eye series out. This is much more intense emotionally. I've watched five episodes so far and cried during three of them. A lot of it has to do with our inner demons and self-esteem. And each episode ends with hope and happiness.

The last audio cassette factory

I do miss listening to tapes.

McLaren in Singapore

My friend found a great deal flying all over Southeast Asia via AirAsia. I think she's going to visit Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand, and Malaysia. She was in the financial district of Singapore and sent me this shot.

Zero G flight, aka the Vomit Comet

A colleague excitedly told me this morning that he is riding the Vomit Comet when it comes to the Bay Area. $5,000 for the opportunity to puke your guts out.

Life on Pitcairn Island

It's such a strange and remote place. I want to visit.

Mr Wizard on Nickelodeon

I was looking up rock tumblers and found an old clip of Mr. Wizard. He had a science show for kids in the 1980s and I watched it religiously. I'm sure all the children on the show are now world renowned scientists.

Daydreaming about travel

These trips will likely never happen, but that's what I thought about visiting Niihau and the Pan-American Highway. So who knows.
