Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside

Sallie Ford 7

I went to The Woods last night to see Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside. (Flickr photoset)

I really enjoyed the concert. Sallie's sound is hard to describe, but it's kind of like a folk-pop sound with a hint of Billie Holiday and a touch of bluegrass.

Perfectly Balanced

Perfectly balanced

Today we saw this out the window. It started a discussion about how the (actual) sky looked "fake." We have gotten so used to seeing manipulations, special effects, Photoshopped pictures, and all manner of fakery, that an unusual-looking real event seems like it must be some sort of a con. Like it is the last straw that proves we are really living in a manufactured reality like in The Truman Show.

But this was a lenticular cloud over Mt. Hood. It stayed perfectly lined up like that for a few minutes, then it was gone.

The Ten

People online have been discussing whether 2010 should be pronounced "twenty ten" or "two thousand ten." I think we should go for short and snappy, and just call it "The Ten." Kind of like "The O.C."


Portlandia in the snowstorm

I took this photo at night during a snow storm. I processed it in Lightroom and tried to make it look more like a drawing.
