Aries Supernova

The explosion, called GRB 060218 after the date it was discovered, originated in a star-forming galaxy about 440 million light-years away toward the constellation Aries. This is the second-closest gamma-ray burst ever detected, if indeed it is a true burst.

...you’re a human supernova
A solar superman
You’re an angel with wings afire
A flying, giant friction blast....

Now running for office: an army of Iraq war vets

They call themselves the Band of Brothers, about 50 men - and a few women - all Democrats, all opposed to the Bush administration's handling of Iraq, and all military veterans.
One more thing: They're all running for Congress this year.

Luis Herman Fermin (1955-2006)

luliTonight I learned that my brother, Luis, had died. His death is shrouded in some mystery, but my hope is that he made it to Machu Picchu, as was his wish, before he met his fate.

I am sad and will grieve his demise, but the truth is I am relieved for him, because he is no longer dying every day.

Rest in peace, my brother.

Life imitates sonic youth

I know a secret or two about goo

I've been meaning to write more. Gah, but they're making me do too much at work. The nerve! In the meantime, a few updates:
I'm developing callouses on my fingers. yeah!
Last week @ Willow Street, Kate led the class in a chant for awakening, which was timed just right (and tons of fun), because I've been ruminating on the concept of waking up my self.
And coming soon:
new flyer for the next Dust Congress Presents @ DCAC on March 4 and more pix and ramblings on my week in New Mexico.
