Other Random Things about super rats

  • I usually do these figure pictorials late at night, so I’m usually listening to Coast to Coast AM with George Noory while processing .JPG files. It’s interesting, though I wonder how George Noory can sit there without laughing sometimes.
  • A pretty big talk radio junkie.
  • Favorite authors include Raymond Carver, J.D. Salinger, Jerzy Kosinski, Harlan Ellison, William Faulkner and Charles Bukowski.
  • Music I’ve liked forever, U2, Saint Etienne, Bjork, Pavement, Jeff Buckley, Sonic Youth, and The Counting Crows. Muse should be on there too, but I only jumped on that bandwagon in 2007.
  • Bacon Cheeseburger > Sushi.
  • Am a big fan of the USA.

    Hi, I have a request. I am pretty new to WordPress and I am trying to setup my schoolclass blog. It is almost finished, the only thing I want to do is to customize the photoalbum-albums-highlight.html etc etc in the Flickr tool.

    I want to have a layout like yours, but I can never do that because of my lack of skills.

    Can you please mail me your customised photoalbum-albums-*.html files so that I can get a step further and to learn something new?

    I found your site very resourceful & inspirational, makes me keep coming back to check your latest entries of Figure Reviews~ah…all these pretty pictures.
    Nice tutorial you have on photographing too!

    Please feel free to drop by my newly built, work-in-progress Figure Gallery, it’s still focusing mainly on pictorials thus far.
