Just got your comments.. Been in the thesis vortex for a while now and just coming up for air. Yes, San Fran had amazing architecture.. I need to get to Chicago at some point and am hoping to do a train travel through the states at some point on the other side of this thesis thing. Also on my to-do list is to check out more of your interesting blog stuff..
I don't live in Fresno; I live in Albany, NY. I read about the Fresno article as it was posted by someone else who attends FCC and I was interested in finding out more about that douche Brad Lopez. It turns out I was reading everything a few days after it was posted so I found some updates and decided to share them. I'm sure those musicians you mentioned are worthy of mentioning, though. If I am ever out in Fresno (and I do plan a Cali trip in the near future) I will keep an eye out!
Yeh-- he's probably somebody's sock puppet.. I just enjoy calling people on their bullshit. That was just like shooting fish in a barrel though. Thanks for the invite. This site is definitely fun and I will hang out for a bit. Have a thesis to get on with soon though. Anyways, I'll see ya out there.
Thanks for the input. Turns out I just timed myself reading "This I Believe" and it came in at a shade over four minutes! Thing is, too, I prefer not to be about beliefs but about knowledge, and I am totally with that lovely Carl Sagan quote: "I don't want to believe; I want to KNOW."
Whenever it is that you come up with your TIB piece, I'd be very interested in reading it.
