The Tim Burton show at LACMA

We went to LACMA to see the Tim Burton show before it left; the show was interesting, but packed – we had to wait 1 1/2 hours to go in, and even then it was hard to get close to objects. There were two rooms dedicated to film props and drawings, and then a few […]

New Hindu Goddess statue, Kali

I have a set of statues of Hindu gods at work – I started collecting them when I worked at Classmates.com, and one day the women on the team (the team was more than half female) came into my office and wanted to know why there were no goddesses. Oops. Not wanting an HR scene, […]

The Magic Charger from Mobee Technology

I got a Magic Mouse with my Mac Pro, and I’ve had a lot of issues with batteries – it doesn’t use them especially quickly, but it’s not great about warning me as the battery charge goes down, and eventually the mouse doesn’t respond properly to movement. I was walking around the local Apple Store […]

Photos from Pasadena

We decided to bundle up the dogs and go to Pasadena – Aviva noticed a show up at a gallery we hadn’t heard of, she wanted a catalog and you could only get it there. Our first stop was Offramp Gallery, which has a show up of Lisa Adam’s new work, titled “Born This Way.” […]

Pictures from Hollywood

A few pictures from Hollywood yesterday along with a picture of a really good food truck I tried on Wednesday. We first stopped at Wacko, a great fun store and gallery. We also had a great meal at Il Capriccio on Vermont; Aviva’s pasta was clearly handmade, mine perhaps less clearly. Aviva had a squid […]

Solvang, California

We decided to drive out to Solvang, a small town in Santa Barbara county in California. We hoped it would be about 2 hours driving but, with traffic, it took about 3 each way (plus stops for the dogs to stretch, pee and for us to eat lunch). We took the scenic route up the […]
