October 1, 2006 - Guyuan, China

Shanxi Bound

To show my appreciation for the P.R.C. & its National Day I will be traveling from October 2 until October 8 within Shanxi Province. I’m - hopefully, as none of us have cell-phones - going to be meeting up with some of the VIA crew in Taiyuan late Monday night. As soon as we’re up Tuesday morning we ship out of the polluted cloud that everyone says Taiyuan is, to Wutai Shan. In Buddhist lore, Wutai is the earthly residence of the great bodhisattva, Manjusri. It is hailed as one of the more beautiful regions of China.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, namely remote regions of China, I will be observing radio - and that means posting too - silence.

May have some good pictures on return.

Over & out.

James Jean - Some pretty amazing illustration - and process is shown at Process Recess.

jwz - God and Hate - “The president of the United States has claimed, on more than one occasion, to be in dialogue with God. If he said that he was talking to God through his hairdryer, this would precipitate a national emergency. I fail to see how the addition of a hairdryer makes the claim more ridiculous or offensive.”

Rotary Woofer - For those times you cannot afford to miss 10Hz or lower. Feel your bass. Installs in your attic.

Audis New SuperCar - Audi drops its new mid-engine sports beast on us. A real beauty. Looks better than that Veyron thing too.

Plane off Runway - Private plane lands mid-runway, takes a hop into the drink and decides - on its own - that it would like to try to take off again.

Wolverine in Time for H-Day - The perfectionists guide to a Wolverine costume. Lawsuits included.

Tumbleweeds... and no comments. How 'bout livening things up?
