Some Pita

Some Pita

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 18th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots that didn’t make the cut.

We went for lunch today at the Bedouin Tent on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn.  This is the Pita for their great sandwiches. :]

Here are the extras, Day 18 – Al Leon.

That’s right… I can not get enough of roller derby. I think I finally understand what it means to be a sport’s fan. This is great!

Anyway, here is one of the videos I shot from that night (Saturday, August 7th, 2010, Queens of Pain vs. Bronx Gridlock). It was so fresh. I recommend it to all, but I don’t want it to become too popular and get ruined… a conundrum. :\  Oh world!

I have the rest in any format you may want to use… I love them all!

Kinder Surprise

My Space

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the second of those photos.

Today I realized I seem to have many pictures to choose from, so much so that it is hard to choose just one. I am going to start a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” and put in daily the shots that don’t make the cut. For toady’s almosts go here, Day 2 – The Outs.

I also ran out of batteries on my Canon PowerShot S31S first thing this morning. My batteries are rechargeable so it is not like I would go buy more, and of course the charger was at home. :\ Lesson learned, bring extra charged batteries just in case.

I have a few cameras, even ancient ones that I am looking forward to using. I will state what camera I used each day. For example, some of my shots today were using my myTouch 3G Slide camera, since my batteries went dead in the morning. Which by the way, in the bright light of the sun takes amazing pictures, reminiscent of my Nokia 3650’s camera (Trivia Fact: It was also the first phone with an integrated camera delivered to North America.).  I loved that phone back in the day. The only one ever stolen from me…

There are some more shots here from today that did not make the cut. Some are of my desk taking with my Canon PowerShot S31S and some are of this trash art in Dontown Brooklyn, near where I work. To be exact it is this one big tree, a bench I think, cement patch at Flatbush and 3rd Avenue, Downtown Brooklyn. A little art in the middle of nowhere. My friend Paola Chica is standing in the background waiting patiently. I took the outside shots with my myTouch 3G Slide camera. I’m telling you a great camera.

Okay, on with the show. This is a part of my desk at my job.  This computer figure is from a Kinder Surprise which came into the states all the way from France.

I am the head of IT which my office represents well as you can see.

Today’s game is World Without Oil. I am beyond excited to come up with a plan of what to do in the first 32 weeks of a global oil crisis. I don’t know what medium I will use yet, but I love to think and come up with solutions, especially in a virtual world, so bring it.

According to the WWO site, “World Without Oil concluded on June 1, 2007. [They are] no longer publishing links to in-game stories on the WWO site (unless they’re really good). But everyone is welcome to sign up as a Netizen Hero and to participate in “WWO Lives,” [their] ongoing blog about all matters WWO.”

The cool thing is they say they will link to good in-game stories from the WWO Lives blog. That means only the superstar stories will make it on the site, which is a still a competition, and who doesn’t like a little healthy competition.

I’m in.

Since Friday was my 100th post, we missed the weekly shopping entry, so thank you Monday, for picking up Friday’s slack.

Sometimes I commit sins against green. It is true I still sin. One example of said sinning is my desire to dry the counters with clean, pristine, white, recycled [:)] paper towels. I have a sponge for the counters, but it always seems to get dirty so fast, that I can’t bear to “clean” anything with it. Thus, the paper towel dilemma.

I decided to research this issue of mine and find a solution. Here is what I will try, the European Sponge Cloth. I think it might be a winner. I will let you know, and if anyone reading this has tried it, please review as I am curious.

Second sin…composting. I’ve done tons of research on composting…for whatever reasons, I will not get into now. Nevertheless, with all I know of what makes what type of compost, and what to do to keep out the bugs, how to make it not smell, plenty of room on my fire escape, food byproducts everyday, plants that need to be re-potted and fed…I still don’t compost. What I will do is buy these BioBags [100% biodegradable and 100% compostable bags and films made from the material, Mater-Bi. All of our products contain GMO free starch, biodegradable polymer and other renewable resources. No polyethylene is used in the production process. BioBag products meet ASTM D6400 specifications and California SB 1749 requirements.] and line this old wooden wine box

and compost away. Again, I’ll let you know…

And last but not least, to begin to make up for all the paper and whatever else I have done, I will give to The Arbor Day Foundation’s, Rain Forest Rescue Program.

I like having “to-do” lists.

Reason 66 from, 101 Reasons Why I Am Vegetarian:
The meat industry doesn’t treat the causes of its problems, only the symptoms. When it imprisons massive numbers of animals in cramped stress-inducing cages, it provides the perfect breeding ground for deadly bacteria, which later infect the meat. Technologies to kill meat pathogens are now very big business. We have acidic-solution carcass misting, alkaline-solution sprays, steam/vacuum technology, high-temperature carcass washes, steam pasteurization, and chlorine applications, etc., ad nauseam. Some bug-fighting methods, such as food irradiation and sprays of antidotal viruses and probiotic bacteria, pose risks in themselves. And in the end, the meat still isn’t safe

Marine & I ended up at Madison Square Garden on March 18th, 2008 around noon, to show our respect for Angelica, an elephant abused in Ringling Bros. Circus. It was a press conference for Intro 389 run by The League of Humane Voters and PETA.

If you don’t feel like clicking on the links, here is a sad blurb about some of the abuse that has gone on and why you should call or email your council member and urge him or her to support Intro 389, the bill to ban the use of wild animals in circuses, “A U.S. Department of Agriculture inspection report revealed that inspectors found large, painful wounds on the legs of baby elephants Doc and Angelica, caused when they were separated from their mothers. In the wild, female elephants remain with their mothers their entire lives and males for up to 15 years, but both of Ringling’s baby elephants were just under 2 years old when torn from their mothers.

I put together some pictures from the event and put them on my flickr.

Elephants deserve better!

The late parent advisor Dr. Benjamin Spock maintained that cows’ milk “causes internal blood loss, allergies, and indigestion and contributes to some cases of childhood diabetes.” In the last edition of his famous baby book he recommended, essentially, that children adhere to a vegan diet after the age of two. But he did not recommend dairy milk for babies either. According to renowned nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell, “Cows’-milk protein may be the single most significant chemical carcinogen to which humans are exposed.”

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
