I have had the opportunity to drive around the Midwest recently and find an America that despite ethnic and social distinctions through regional variation seems to be on a fast track to seamless cultural homogenation through the following list of retailers...

Home Depot
Ruby Tuesday
Outback Steakhouse

We must fight cultural homogenation by not spending money at these establishments...

I am sitting here watching snow fall in Kabul from back in 2002 on my monitor. A bunch of Afghan children are in the dirt streets tossing snowballs at the camera crew. Men in wool shawls bundled up against the cold carry brightly colored umbrellas as they make their way up the street. Women in burkas stroll while fat flakes of snow settle onto their bright blue garments. Cigarettes are smoked as bearded men huddle around makeshift fires. Usually the video is of an alarming nature but there are moments where day to day life is actually captured. It is in those moments where I find peace.

Ahh, better living through technology.

Yesterday, I got a new mobile phone, an LG vx6000.
It has a built in camera that is really nifty and being someone who enjoys such things, I also was clued into a neat service that allows you to post your mobile phone pictures directly to a website.

So without further hesitation I present my mobile phone log: Random images from an otherwise meaningless life.
I have added this site to my links list. Enjoy.
