Catching up on posting a few photos from that sojourn in Shanghai. This one was shot in a dusty hutong in Shanghai. Grease from a jianbing seems to have clouded my iPhone’s camera. I think I remember at the time choosing not to wipe it off because it looked interesting. The kid in this photo has the perfect kind of barely-reactive wary look. Better that than succumb to overwhelm, can’t have a billion people throwing a tantrum!
After a few weeks of living in a hotel room in Grand Rapids, I’ve packed up my things and moved into a shared apartment with the film editor here in Lowell, MI, just a couple of blocks from the editing room. It’s nice to no longer have to drive 25 miles to and from work every day. Tonight I used that extra time to prepare my own dinner rather than eat out. Hooray for homey food that isn’t beige.
Regarding MJ, I had a Thriller LP when I was a kid and I should find it next time I’m at my parents’. It’s probably next to my Ofra Haza LP –another pop singer who died too young, and who according to Wikipedia “turned down an offer to support Michael Jackson on tour” in 1990. Apophenia or Connections?
Can I get a hallelujah? I wonder what took so long?
My Sony Mylo 2, a device only useful to me because it is a very good wireless Skype phone, will be going up for sale on eBay after Skype launches its long-awaited iPhone app tomorrow. My apartment just isn’t big enough for the both of them.

I suspect it’s only a matter of time before enterprising iPhone hackers manage to circumvent the app’s wifi-only restriction for VOIP.
