Visceral Realism

I discovered this new art scene going on. The Visceral Realists are a group of quasi-anarchists. They don't believe in reform or utopia; they prefer institutional rupture. They've abducted curators and taken over major art institution board meetings.

Are You A Joss Whedon Fan?

Do you love musicals? Comic books? Neil Patrick Harris?

If so, get your butt to this site now. It's still running for free until midnight tonight. It's worth some money if you miss the deadline.

How About Some Photos Already?!?

Finally, I'm sharing some photos of our Alaska cruise.

Part I

Leaving Seattle. Isn't the ship ginormous?

Elias looking out at birds or whales or something. We saw humpbacks, porpoises, orcas, and more bald eagles than I've ever seen before.

While at sea, we chilled out a lot in lounges on the boat.

Here's a shot of the ship anchored outside Sitka. When we came to Sitka, we took smaller boats to the shore.

Mt. Edgecumbe looming over Sitka

More to come... .

Elias's Sole Fest

We're back from the Alaska cruise. It was awesome, and I'll post photos soon enough. For now, check out Elias's triumph! A few days before we sailed, Elias went out with his dad in Birch Bay and caught three sole type fish.

Wearing his Sonics (formerly of Seattle) jersey, Elias poses with the largest of his catch.

All three, ready for cleaning.

The finished product, breaded with almonds and baked.
