San Diego sojourn

I’m back in the augmented bosom of southern California, at least for a grand total of one day before heading to New England for family events. In lieu of actual blogging:

  • Please enjoy enormous blue Australian earthworms from Zooillogix. Mess with them and they’ll put YOU on a fishhook.
  • For those of you interested in trash in the North Pacific Gyre, the Algalita Foundation is sailing a boat made out of trash to Hawaii. It’s like the Life of Pi with more trash and less maneating tiger.
  • Make your boobs bionic with a solar-powered bra. The energy can be used to a) keep those delicate lady parts warm; or b) charge your cellphone or ipod. The only catch is that the solar panel needs to be exposed to sunlight for a few hours a day – so unless sunbathing is a required part of your job, it’s not so useful. (But I have all these required surface intervals between dives! Could the bra charge my underwater drill or suction sampler? Sweet!)

And I’m going to a Dresden Dolls concert tonight! Brechtian punk cabaret and crossdressing and their new album! In honor of my return, this is their “Shores of California” video.

    That Dresden Doll’s video is an outstanding re-interpretation of David Lee Roth’s ‘California Girls’!

    I just watched both videos again – I think the Dresden Dolls might have a new fan – they’re brilliant. And their music’s pretty good too :)
