The Page Perrin Project Part 2: The Memorial

I’ve spent the last four days completely out of touch from the world and I loved it. What I loved even more was the drive back up to Hat Creek to meet with others, to commemorate Page Perrin’s full life. If you’re ‘yawn,’ then here, a comment from Sandy, a former lover from the 70’s.…Read More

AHS13 Kicks Off in Atlanta; Break a Leg, Maggots!

And guess what? It’s certain to be imperfect. Oh noes! Damn you! Just in case you thought that pinning my scathing and righteous rebuke of a dumbass AHS12 volunteer to the top of the blog yesterday was in any measure sour grapes—because I’m neither presenting (didn’t apply) or attending this year—nothing could be further from…Read More

A Quick Lafer for Wooo

Someone mentioned “burying the hatchet.” I’m simply incapable of holding a grudge, and it’s been a lifelong flaw and affliction. Worse, it doesn’t seem to matter whether it was a smart or stupid grudge. I can’t really understand why it’s that way, other than I can’t help feeling how I feel about things. Seems to…Read More

Auto “Insurance” Run Like Medical “Insurance”

For many, many years I’ve said that people are NOT talking about medical or health “insurance,” but rather a bumper-to-bumper full maintenance plan. My longtime friend, Kyle Bennett, illustrates how it would go if people were as stupid and ignorant about automobile maintenance and insurance as they are about so-called health insurance. ~~~ If you handled your…Read More

The Perfect Person for the Job

It reminds me of another “perfect job”: Street Sweepers. You know, that make-work thing where those ridiculous vehicles come around every so often to smear all the dirt around with a bit of added water? Kyle Smith writes in the New York Post: Unemployed? Underemployed? Working the register at Denny’s when you used to be on…Read More

How Resistant Starch via Potato Starch and Beans Helped a Type 2 Diabetic

I have a new report of results I'm posting about in advance of hitting up the topic of Resistant Starch next week, by means of some pretty interesting, well controlled and documented self experiments by two readers working in concert. For those just showing up or who haven't been interested so far, here's a list of my previous posts on the topic of Resistant Starch, in chronological order and current comment count—because there's a wealth…Read More

Totally Simple Pork Roast

Doesn’t matter what kind. Toss it in the crock pot with nothing except salt & pepper seasoning. Put it on low and let it go until tender. Or, do what I do. High for about 2 hours, low for another 4. Deglaze the pot with a few dribbles of white wine, move everything to a…Read More

OMG: 44 yr-old SanJay GupTa Discovers That Marijuana is Pretty Harmless…in 2013

What a fuckweed. CNN’s chief medical expert Sanjay Gupta announced Wednesday night that he has reversed his blanket opposition to marijuana use. There’s a short video too.

Guys: How to Get Swole in a Day

2 Ways: 1) Fuckahard Deadlifts. Close to 1.5 times body weight and above, sky limit, but 1.5 will probably do. For reps, because injuries fuck you. Go for 4-6 reps, two times. 2) Or, drink a half to a whole gallon of whole milk. No pussy powders. Just go with the baby thing. Try both.…Read More

The Page Perrin Project

How does one write a memorial for a small giant who never seemed to know it and certainly never showed it? “Richard; when I go, I don’t want to be remembered. I want to fade away. I want it to be like I was never even here.” – Page Perrin That’s what Page told me…Read More

Outside Play Interrupted

I learned yesterday afternoon upon a visit to his house, that my friend and hang gliding buddy, Page Perrin, died sitting in his chair in LZ-2, Hat Creek Rim, a week ago, Friday, July 26, 2013. This was to be my 15th consecutive year flying here. Page was either present at launch, landing, or flying…Read More

Go Outside and Play

It began Tuesday night with a concert at the Mountain Winery, Saratoga. Great venue.   We were there to see the Gipsy Kings. The Gipsy Kings are a group of musicians from Arles and Montpellier in the south of France who perform in Spanish with an Andalusian accent. Although group members were born in France,…Read More
