OK, I took many great squirrel portraits this week, but unfortunately, my camera isn't cooperating. I'm hoping that it's nothing too serious. I recently upgraded operating systems, which caused some chaos, but seemed to not affect the blogging aspect of things. Well, now it doesn't want to show me anything. The pictures are on the camera; I can see them, but the computer can't. Stupid computer. No wait, I love my computer. Sorry, computer! I've downloaded new drivers, but they do nothing. Anyhow, I'm working on a solution - which means that I'm hoping that the situation will correct itself by magic. If that doesn't work, I'll try shouting at it.
OK, so these are squirrels from not too long ago. One is being sneaky and the other is eating a peanut. And that just about does it. Enjoy!

But don't take my word for it. You can preview the whole damn thing here. The last album got some decent airplay. This is going to get more. You can get in on the ground-floor action by purchasing a copy. Then you can rip tracks and send them to all your friends. Once it's yours, you can do that. I'm not gonna sue you. What am I, Metallica? No indeed.

Well, there was an official shindig to celebrate the opening of Bell Street "Park." They closed Bell between 2nd & 3rd and brought in the big guns. We're talking face painting, oversized checkers and chess, a band that played Van Halen covers and a food truck selling expensive grilled cheese sandwiches. I suppose a good time was had by all. I just stayed around long enough to take a few pictures. Here they are:
Sorry that these photos aren't more interesting. It wasn't a very interesting event. But the band did sound like they knew their way around a Van Halen tune. They were just packing up when I arrived on the scene. As for the "park" itself, oh, it's pretty unsightly. Three million bucks and that's the best they could do. I still think it looks like some kind of crazy traffic revision.

So my apartment already has more than enough boxes of unsold CDs lining the walls. I'm about to get more. Plus t-shirts. And posters. And all sorts of other stuff that I can't part with, but don't want. Sure, there's always the public storage option, but the prospect of paying another $100 a month doesn't appeal. I guess I'll just have to start looking like a hoarder. I hear the ladies dig hoarders.
But seriously, if anybody wants to adopt my bad art collection, let me know. I'll hold back just a few pieces and you gotta take the rest.
