Simple log of inhaler puffs, to help me monitor my usage and know when the inhaler is nearly used up.



playlists for Mister C

Friday, December 11th, 2009

My favorite soul DJ, Mister C, did his last regular show at WFMU over a year ago.  Several years of his monthly show are still available in WFMU’s archives and I’ve been listening to them a lot lately.

Some of my other favorite DJ’s (like Billy Jam & Kevin Nutt) post playlists for their shows.  These make it easy to jump back to a show or song that I’m in the mood for hearing, or look up the current song that I’m listening to. For example:  in the mood for an Arthur Conley song? Google for “arthur conley” and you’ll find 80 archived shows from various DJ’s who happened to play one of his songs during their show!

Mr. C never posted playlists (some WFMU DJ’s do it, others don’t), so a while ago I started casually building up my own.  Here, for the enjoyment of like-minded listeners, are my Mister C’s Soul Spectacular playlists.


kitchen remodel

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Our 2005 kitchen remodeling project.

Re-posting a couple of old projects from the previous site.  I know these aren’t hugely interesting, but I’ve often found random people’s web pages to be a great source of information and inspiration when I’m trying to work out my own project ideas, so here’s to hoping that someone stumbles upon these and finds them useful.

I wish I’d done a better job at taking pictures of past projects.  I can’t, for example, find any pictures of my pickup truck pvc canoe rack, which is a shame because I was pretty proud of that and I believe it was a fairly unique design.  Oh well.
