I listen to a good amount of my music “in the cloud.” At first, that meant Pandora. I’ve since dropped that in favor of Rdio, which does the Pandora radio station shuffle thing, but also lets you pick what you want to listen to, on demand. (As an aside, I have no real opinion on …

A teaser trailer for the upcoming James Bond film. Don’t worry, there’s not much in the way of spoilers. I can’t wait to see it!
Just a sunset for today, as seen through some random weeds. Now that I think about it, all weeds are random, aren’t they? That’s what makes them weeds. I am so deep. The post A Final Farewell appeared first on

This tulip was growing at the edge of a yard outside a medical office on the corner of 2nd and Marion St. I like tulips, and it’s only partly because they’re one of the few flowers I can identify without assistance. The post

This here is Oregon’s state flower, the Oregon Grape, if I’ve identified it correctly. You might notice the distinct lack of grapes, but the plant does grow berries, so maybe that counts. Here’s some info about the flower, if you’re into that sort of thing. I found this growing at the edge of Neit

I’ve posted some videos before of the amazing Danny MacAskill showing off on his trials mountain bike, but check out this video of similar tricks and stunts being done by him and two others on a $20,000 road bike!
Saturday in the park, I think it was the 21st of March… sorry, old Chicago song reference there. Anyway, these people had the right idea on Saturday, taking their dogs for a walk amongst the pretty spring trees. The post A

When I first joined Automattic, I was a member of the VIP Team which is in charge of helping our enterprise clients host their large websites on our platform. After doing that for three and a half years, I got a bit burned out and was given the opportunity to switch to our Janitorial team. […]
It made me rather happy to see all these lovely tulips in bloom a few days ago along 2nd Ave. I took a photo of them last year, too, when the flowers were a bit further along. The post Somewhere In Time appeared first on

A guy on a bicycle passed by me yesterday when I was taking photos on 2nd Ave. yesterday. I think he had the right idea, since it was unexpectedly quite nice yesterday. The post Bicycle Man appeared first on

It is the month of March — the month that brings madness to the world of college-level basketball. But I’m not going to speak of that because I know very little of basketball matches and teams. I’m going to talk about quidditch. You know that quidditch is real, right? Through the magic of the internet …
To celebrate the first day of spring, I decided against posting another photo of tree blossoms, and instead am posting a photo of tree blossom buds. Totally different. The post The Future appeared first on

Belated Greetings from the 502! I had every intention of posting yesterday but got caught in a whirlwind of errand after errand and a super fun St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Life is good! The fact that the Louisville area code is one digit away from Portland’s 503 seems to be more than an interesting […
I went out on a limb today and decided to post something other than a tree blossoms photo. That’s right, these flowers were on the ground. Totally different. I don’t remember if I know what they are, but I found them at Pioneer Park. The post

I have mentioned The Tragedy Series here on the blog several times over the last couple of years and linked to a few specific installments on Facebook. I thought I would give you, dear reader, another whistle regarding the series and its website, considering several related loose threads are converging. All good things
WordPress.com is for blogging right? Right -- but it's also for websites of any kind, as these four polished pages ably demonstrate.

Wild and wonderful West Virginia fog. I love the way it whispers about. We would not have asked for better weather on our inaugural Pittsburgh based road trip. We left in darkness to beat the traffic, and boy, did we! There was hardly a soul on the road. I still can’t believe my dumb luck […]

For the five or ten of you who actively follow this blog, you might be wondering if all I know how to post are spring tree blossoms. To that, I answer: YES. They are pretty, and they are what I’ve found to photographer, so live with it until I am tired of them or they […] The post

This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the first pinot noir plantings in the Willamette Valley.

I was lucky enough to get to see the 1.3 million dollar latest Ferrari supercar earlier this week. What an amazing car! Here’s some photos I took: I also took some video of it revving (forgive the momentary sideways video): If you want to see even more photos, here’s some from better photographers: https://www.f
