Upgraded to WP 2.1 and Tarski 1.2.1.  Some stuff doesn’t all quite work yet.  Hopefully I fixed the posting and pages problem.  The US Postal Service sucks.

Smokies and Subway Prep.

Looked into some details on how to make Matt’s post-graduation “14 highest peaks in the Eastern United States” trip go smoothly. We may have to travel up to New Hampshire to get #14, being Mt. Washington. Apparently there needs to be about 200 feet of true “clean prominence” in order to be considered a peak. North Carolina and Tennessee have many peaks but they blur together, as such we may drive North after the Southern peaks are bagged.

We’re going to Eastern Effects tomorrow to start prepping this Subway film. Hopefully it goes well. I think I’ve figured out my ideal rear cassette, it is not 10 speed, it is 9 speed, and it look it’s Shimano 105 quality, it goes 13-14-15-16-17-18-19-21-23 with a 42/52 on front. Still don’t have 9 speed shifters. Those Modolo Kronos downtube friction levers of James’ are pretty sketchy. And Matt’s old BL-105 aero levers make noise. Maybe Campy Chorus Carbon Ergo 10v working as 9. We’ll see.

So Zoe and I went to the MoMA “Sleep Walkers” exhibit last night in the cold winds, to see the screens projected hither and yon upon the exterior MoMA walls. It was a fairly clean sterile design, in that the world of the characters didn’t remind Zoe and I of the city we live in. And Johnny from the OC, was in fact the bike mesenger character except that he really never got dirty or rode his bicycle, though he did play drums in the subway. The lead singer from Cat Power was a Postal Worker, Donald Sutherland goes to what may be the NY Stock Exchange. I suppose really it was the novel presentation that made it anything worthwhile, and not the content, because they were these massively bright projections on 9 walls on all sides, and it was freezing cold out. That’s about all I can think of. I was certified to shoot down in the Subways by the MTA for this next film starting at the end of this month. It’s finally getting cold out. Haven’t had any more fruitful converations with Anna except for the one where she told us she wants us to move out May 1st.
