In case you missed it yesterday, my post on Chemo, sex, Viagra and me [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ]

Culture of CorpulenceAmerican innovations in food, transportation, and technology are threatening to supersize us all.

Giant meat-eating plants prefer to eat tree shrew pooThe largest meat-eating plant in the world is designed not to eat small animals, but small animal poo. You couldn't make this shit up.

Bryan Clift sees a 10 foot penis — Probably it was only six feet.

We Wouldn't Want To Be Simplistic And Naive, Now, Would We? — Daniel Larison on nuance in politics and media, specifically with respect to the Iraq War.

"Jesus was a Nazi. So's your preacher" — Roger Ebert on Glenn Beck. I've always assumed Rush Limbaugh was a rank opportunist who didn't care what damage he did to politics and society so long as he mae his bucks. I am starting to think Beck believes his own crazy, and wants to poison the well of American culture.

My valley was green only for a brief time in late winter and early spring. Newly bright green of budding alfalfa grass, grape vine buds and the enthusiasm of weeds. Then rich verdant green that gave ducks, quail, peasants, and other birds places to hide. Rich green that birthed mice and voles and sent fruit buds shooting up and out gnarled tree limbs. And deep, dark green of deep waters hiding cold fish. Then all that green transforms to golds, yellows, browns so quickly that one's heart leaps up at the sight--which really is why it's known as the golden state.
My valley was green for just a while.

My abode is nestled in an always-green, temperate-rainforest valley. The hills have the heavy, opaque, late-Cretaceous green of New Zealand evergreen trees. Soon, you'll see it, and know what I mean. Closer to my house, there's more shimmer, as roses, rhododendrons, and pittosporums do their best to take over the world.

I have been reliably informed that a taniwha lives in my valley, and chooses who lives there.
