How coloring my hair changed my life

When I came back to America after a very rough trip through Europe, I was virtually destroyed mentally. I thought I was an awful person, I had no respect for myself, and I absolutely didn’t love myself. I won’t get into why I felt this way, but it is important to my story. I struggled constantly with my self-worth. I would talk down to myself. I told myself that I was ugly and, while I knew I could be a contributing member of society, I didn’t want to be. I just wanted to stay in my room all…

Sad, mad, frustrated, worried about the Gulf oil leak?

Yeah, me, too. "Obsessed" would likely be a better word. Or "sick with grief and anxious about the future of an ocean that has been ruined not just by corporate mismanagement and a lack of government oversight but also thanks to our ridiculous and gluttonous consumption of resources" (Okay, that was 37 words.)



Anyway, wouldn't it be nice to hold hands on Saturday with some other people who feel sad and upset and angry and freaked out by the whole thing, too?



I think… Continue

The two whos' blog on life's little things: Mommy, this is funny

Yun has two boys. They have taught her lessens in life like no others by cracking her up laughing all the time.



When the kids were younger, one Saturday afternoon, after a week’s work, learning , laundry and cooking, Yun felt unsupported wishing things could be a little easier for her as a single mother. Yun retired herself on the couch. That day, there was a play date for the boys. As she drifted in and out between the two worlds, she heard one of her sons say: “Sssh, my mommy is… Continue

Anne Between Blue and Green: World premiere at VSA/North Fourth

The one-woman show was brought by Granhoj Dans of Denmark Thursday night to kick off this year’s Global Dance Fest. And kick it does: this piece alternates between visceral, cerebral, and dreamlike as our heroine moves and sings in ways you’ve never heard or seen. I promise.



I won’t give away too much (not that there’s an actual plot), but multi-instrumentalist Anne plays herself as a musical instrument--with a cello bow--while vocalizing the resultant sounds. And she has a voice,… Continue

Inn Plain Sight

The USA Network's TV Show "In Plain Sight" filmed a few scenes of the next season's opener here at our small inn this past Monday. They set the place up as they liked it on Friday, including moving out Rol's pool table and turning that room into a bedroom. Our dining room became a living room again for the first time in 9 years. They returned Monday just before 6 am to set up and start the shoot. They were here all day and the last of them were out of here just before 9pm.



What a… Continue

Hi! Ho! Come to the Fair! The Cows and the Sheep Will All Be There!



I never saw a Purple Cow. I hope I NEVER see one. But, I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see than be one!



Don't forget the Fair this year. In keeping with your visits with the animals, you may enjoy the bull you read in the following bit of "poetry": Cows With Guns



Fat and docile, big and dumb,

They look so stupid, they aren't much fun,

Cows aren't fun.



They eat to grow, grow to die,

Die to be et,… Continue

How Many DCF Web Geeks Does It Take To Get Screwed?

Eight. Apparently at Nob Hill Bar and Grill last night if you weren't paying attention, a 20% gratuity was added to your tab (if you bought a dinner).



First I asked some of my fellow DCFers. Greg didn't recall if it had been added but mentioned that he had added a generous tip himself. Ester checked her bill and did not see an added gratuity and a third guy (whose name I don't recall, sorry dude) had… Continue

Acids and Basses & Spark_Gap Reviews

On Friday I made it out to Hunab Hookah for a little bit to catch some of The Acids and Basses electro jam, with guest F/M from Santa Fe. Trippy, Ambient and experimental, quite enjoyable to just sit back and listen to. F/M consisted of two technicians, Martin Back and Frank Rolla, a lute, two macbooks and a contraption which I will name the "random paddle", a large standing instrument with many wooden paddles jutting from it, and small motors which randomly would cause a hammer mallet to play… Continue
