ex machina

so, let's just say you're driving 90 miles per hour down a highway that's clearly marked with a 70 mile per hour speed limit and your humming along to radiohead's "the tourist", which - i'll remind you - contains the following ominous lyrics:

"It barks at no one else but me
Like it's seen a ghost
I guess it seen the sparks a-flowing
No one else would know

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot, slow down, slow down

Sometimes I get overcharged
That's when you see sparks
You ask me where the hell I'm going
At a thousand feet per second

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot slow down, slow down

Hey man slow down, slow down
Idiot slow down, slow down"

yes, let's imagine that this is, in fact, the circumstance you find yourself in, right before you get pulled over by a michigan state trooper. are you:

  1. incredibly stupid, for ignoring the universe as she loudly shouts in your ear to slow your shit down?
  2. incredibly lucky, for getting the nicest state trooper ever, because - for reasons left unexplained - he decided to write you a ticket for 5 miles over.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
