photography: capturing the moment

This will be my last post regarding the Inauguration, I promise. I’m already feeling the information overload and starting to turn back into “non-political Brian.” This panoramic photograph, however, is absolutely amazing. David Bergman took this photo, the file measuring...

44: a very nice number indeed!

The Big Picture from The Boston Globe has some amazing photos from Washington DC and around the world during yesterday’s Inaugural events. The satellite photo is incredible, of course, but it was the above image that appealed to me. Just...

video: our many understandings

I had a lot to do yesterday, so I didn’t turn on the web stream of the We Are One concert until near when it was finished because I knew I’d be glued to the couch. I did not realize...

quotes: wait, who said that?

This page has been giving me the laughs I’ve sorely needed all day. MightyGodKing has taken some pictures from the recent political campaign and matched the images of a popular everyman with the words of another. I think it works...

DC: gird your loins!*

Are you ready for some Inauguration!? I do wish I’d known about the parade rehearsal as that would have been interesting to see and about as close as I wish to get to any of that nonsense. Though apparently even...

Sinfest: Hall of Justice

Once again, Sinfest knocks it out of the park. There were a lot of political cartoons going around about the historic event, but I kinda prefer my illustrated political commentary from Tatsuya Ishida. Since I’m sure people who read this...

Yes We Can? YES WE DID.

I’m pretty much overwhelmed right now. Horns are honking, people in my building are screaming, people outside are cheering, fireworks are going off. I’m getting dressed to meet Kyle and go out and do.. SOMETHING… as soon as I stop...

election 2008: who needs CNN?!

If you aren’t watching or don’t have access to what’s pretty much the political version of The View on CNN, Google has created a “real time” gadget to track the election results. It’s pretty snazzy: Thanks James for the heads-up....

And to top it all off, you get a sticker!

That may be one of the worst quality photos I’ve posted to my blog, but it doesn’t matter. That was the view of the polling place from my apartment window this morning around 7:30a after I got back from voting....

comics: Who are we voting for…?

A new month, a new Bash Magazine. Keith Knight’s submitted strip of The K Chronicles gave me a wonderful chuckle on the ride home. At first I thought it would be so easy to be offended by the strip and...

voting: Pull My Lever!

My current work machine is off getting a lobotomy, so I’m on a loaner. It’s slow, got nearly no memory and doesn’t even have all of the applications I need to do my job. Needless to say, it’s been a...

What, that old trick again?

Seriously now, how stupid do they think people are? Since I read about the same thing happening 4 years ago (and 4 years before that, too) in other states, I’ve actually been waiting for this one to show up, almost...
