Images from an early 1970s sales brochure.
Here is something I thought of probably in the 1990s and I just had to write it down, misspellings and all. If you don’t believe this be sure to check out “At Home With The Weatherman.” Go here to open or download a smaller quicktime (.mov) if you prefer.
This object (near the ‘e’ on the word ‘the’) was in a package of powdered soup. I t appears to be a small rock or stone fragment. Imagine what would have happened if I had bit down on that object!
The soft focus of the image is due to the inexpensive digital camera I used. It has no manual focus and it remained slightly out of focus. Also the natural light I was using was quite low due to it being an especially dark rainy day in Seattle. I think it looks rather arty! I could imagine it being a title of an off beat TV show on the United Kingdom’s Channel 4. But maybe not.
Well here it is as requested from three years ago. The dreaded Chapter 19, “Sex Anomalies and Oddities” is now available for your viewing enjoyment. Be sure and take a look at my original post on this subject called “This Is Why I Exist.”
Here I am with “a Santa Claus” inside Capwell’s department store at the El Cerrito Plaza shopping center in El Cerrito, near my childhood home in Berkeley, California. Even though I was only five years old at the time, I think I had my doubts about the existence of Santa Claus. It didn’t make sense to me seeing Santa Claus in different stores in a fairly short period of time.
These are pictures of a box of breakfast cereal I picked up a few years ago at the Seattle Grocery Outlet grocery store.
I like saving money by not buying new clothes or cutting my hair. As you can see, I like electronic equipment. Behind me, from the left are JBL bullet tweeters a 2402 H and 075, an H. H. Scott A 426 integrated amplifier, and a Marantz Model 23 AM/FM Stereo tuner. On top of the Marantz is a modified Radio Shack communications speaker and a home built sub woofer volume control and high pass filter. Next to the amplifier and tuner is a Pentium 4 computer, and sitting on top of the computer case is a wi-fi antenna, an external hard drive, and an off-air digital TV antenna. On the right side is a Samsung Syncmaster T260HD LCD monitor with built-in analog and digital TV tuner. On the far right is an Iiyama Vision Master Pro 502 21 inch CRT monitor which I got free on Craigslist. I know this sounds like a lot, but all of this stuff is either second hand or obsolete.
I think I may be back, pot belly and all. Be patient, “DUMB /How Dare You?” will gradually be getting back to normal.

Here is something I look at several times a year ever since my father bought it for me in 1966. Also, I’m trying out my new scanner, a Canon 5600F. How does it look?
