Celebration



I was very excited for the inauguration festivites today -- though was thwarted from watching the affair live by a faltering internet connection that has just only recently started working again. We listened to Obama's swearing in and speech over a crackling radio. Very retro.

That all was followed by record shopping and Chinese food.



Both images above are of Lake Como in Saint Paul, taken in the fall. They are thoroughly unrelated to inauguration day, Le Tigre reissues or broccoli beef, but Como Park is a place I love and I'd like to think about good things today.

Bush is really gone now. That's certainly a good thought.

Your blog is like Twitter with more pictures and less bitching. Not a bad niche.

we should have a BBQ at lake cuomo. we'll bring a portable record player, some hot dogs and booze concealed in plastic water bottles......

well maybe its a bit too winter for that to happen anytime soon, but we definitely need to hang out in the twin cities, i mean we're both from there, or at least sort of in my case......

I like the Sat Noise logo you created. It has an awesome Speed Racer-esque simpleness to it. Oh and a copyright symbol is always a nice touch.

BBQ at Como this summer would be wonderful. Brats and booze and walking around the zoo and I like the portable record player idea a lot. Yes. Sad songs for mopey bears.

Funnily enough, the copyright symbol is there to cover up a little design glitch that I didn't really feel like finding an actual solution to.
