ex machina

wow. Geek chic look is clean cut . and it's thoroughly depressing because it means i'm older than i'd like to believe. apparently an emo is getting popular again and influencing the youngins:

"To understand emo (sometimes called "emocore"), the music must come first. Emo is an arty outgrowth of hardcore punk. It's less macho and aggressive; the lyrics often address idealistic experiences and impressions -- frustration with hypocrisy (or bad luck in love), an appreciation for beauty (as well as the absurd). Emotion is OK. In fact, the emo ideal is authentic, deeply felt emotion.

While Rites of Spring is credited as the first emo band, Washington, D.C.'s Fugazi played a bigger role in defining the genre and being recognized in the media for their uncompromisingly anti-commercial attitudes."

so then, of course, it forced me to check out just how long it's been since i shuffled into the record [sic] store and bought something witth a decidedly emo-ish band name like, say, embrace.

yeah, that'd be around 17 years ago. oof.

"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.
