3D Gutter Junk

I like this gutter junk. Some wires with something I can not identify.

Happy Holidays!

Across the street

It's so cool to live across the street from the beach -:]

3D O.B. Jellys!!

This little guy was a couple of inches across and pulsating! It's probably worth the click to see this image a bit bigger.

As you can see we found a bigger Jelly, I think this one could eat your head -:[]

We move in closer...

...and this is what it looks like when it's eating your head!!!

Hydrant Trash in 3D

I didn't realize fire hydrants were the place to put your bulk trash but I guess if you want it gone faster that's probably the spot.

More Pretty & Gross Oil Blobs

It's been more than a month and there are still little oil blobs on the beach.

And I still think they are pretty.

So I keep taking these close up 3d pictures of them.

I guess there are a lot fewer of them now which is a good sign but it's still a bit depressing to think about how nasty these things are for the wild life -:\

Yucky Oil, Pretty Oil.

So someone went and crashed a cargo ship into the bay bridge and dumped a bunch of fuel into the bay that ended up all over the beaches here in SF. The fuel oil has caused all kinds of problems for the wild life, fisher persons and surfers (a.k.a. Me!). The local beach and water was closed for a few weeks and some of the other surf spots were closed for a few days. Our beach was just opened to walk on last week so we went down to check it out. A park ranger guy was cleaning up the oil and showed us what it looked like and where it was most likely to be so we could avoid it. I have to say as bad as this stuff is for the environment the small blobs we saw were kind of pretty. They were mostly about the size of a dime or smaller. Here is what one looked like up close and in 3D.

Another picture. The actual kind of fuel also had sort of an ominous and at the same time interesting name, bunker fuel.

It's pretty but don't touch, it's supposed to be really bad stuff.

Plane Down! In 3D!

It looks like someone fell asleep at the stick. At least that cockpit looks intact so I'm going to guess the pilot walked away. Maybe next time he should have a cup of 3D espresso!

I've been into 3D a long time

And here is a photo from sort of my early days.

I was scanning in a bunch of old photos last weekend when I came across some old 3D Polaroids I had taken. I think they are from around 1985 give or take a few years.

I used to use my parents' Polaroid and film and just walk around taking 3d pictures. I think I used up a lot of their film which was probably not cheap. Good thing they came out with digital cameras or I would be broke. Oh, the picture is of the patio of the house we lived in at the time. Pretty boring except that it's a 3d photo I took 20ish years ago -:]

I guess bikes can't read

The crazy bikes in SF apparently can't read or have a blatant disregard for the law.

Or maybe they were just protesting? This one seems to have come to the wrong protest -;]

Actually there was a huge free music festival in the park called Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and a huge section of the park was closed to cars and bikes. There were crazy numbers of people there. So crazy we ended up leaving because you had to sit so far away from any of the stages or deal with wall to wall people to get up close. We did get there early and catch just about the only Bluegrass act. They were pretty fun. I liked the bike impound area the best though.

Fozzie Bear Looking Deflated

This guy has been greeting us on our weekly walk to our favorite little cafe. I think he's been hanging out for about two months now. I think he looks a lot like Fozzie Bear after he pooped out all his stuffing.

And of course in 3D!

As deflated as he might be, he always seems to have a smile for us -:]

Mangy Goose?

So this one is from my birthday as well but it deserves a post of it's own. During my birthday walk in the park with Linda we stopped for a break at a little pond were we saw this fellow.

Linda sort of knows all kinds of birds from a previous life in which she was an avid bird watcher or something like that. Any way she had no idea what this was. It was hanging out with a bunch of geese but other than the size didn't really look like any of the other geese. So what is it? We are thinking maybe it's just a goose with the mange. Linda tried to look it up on line with no luck.

Anyone know what kind of bird this is or is it just a mangy goose?

My Birthday Was in August...

...and here comes my October post from my August birthday.

So what did I do? Linda took me out to botanical garden in Golden Gate Park where they had a plant show on display called "Chomp". Guess what kind of plants they were. Any way we did our usual walk (Linda is fond of calling it a death march) from our place to our park destination. Along the way we came across this giant purple head we had for some reason never seen.

How could we have missed a 20' tall purple head all this time?


So as you may have guessed the plant show was a carnivorous plant show! The Venus fly traps say "CHOMP"!

The show was pretty small but really cool. It was one medium size room that was super warm and misty and filled with plants that would rather eat you than give you the time of day. This is a section of the center display which was really cool and had chomping plants all around it. I made sure not get to close.

I know these small fuzzy pitcher plants don't look it but they are killers!

Now lets try this again in 3D!!!!

Chomp-D! Chomp-D! Chomp-D!

Keep fingers and small children way from this picture!

So cute and cuddly looking! Don't cuddle! Don't!

Look at all the gaping mouths ready to bite!

One more just for flesh eating 3D plant fun! Chomp chomp chomp!

Thanks for taking me to see the flesh eating plants! I'm so glad we both made it out alive!

Someone was probably pretty happy back in '74.

This box looked like it could contain bits of the last 33ish years of memories.

All memories should be remembered in 3D -:]

Well, maybe not ouch but it's a bit disturbing right?

And here it is in less disturbing and more 3D 3D!!!

Chunky Wall

In 3D!

Boom! Boom! Boom!

Some of the fireworks we saw out back from our fire escape.

We now live in "TSUNAMI" country!

These just popped up in the last week or two and I'm not sure whether or not to be scared or giggle out loud. I mostly just giggled out loud and took these pictures.

Actually this sign is a little unclear. Is it an evacuation route for Tsunami's or in case of Tsunamis? And it also doesn't exactly indicate which way to go.

This one is a little more clear. I think it means we should do mountain climbing if a Tsunami is coming.

I think it means we go up this 3D hill. This is about 100 feet from our place.

This is the sign in 3D on the beach road at the end our our cross street.

S.T.U.N. Runner

It all started with a random conversation at during breakfast at work and turned into S.T.U.N. Runner! A friend and me were eating some eggs and bacon or a muffin or something in the work cafeteria on a Wednesday morning. We were talking about our favorite Nintendo DS game Advance Wars DS. That turned to bigger and better things like that I loved take games which lead the conversation the the classic Battle Zone! Then for some reason we came to a game which we both remembered fondly but could not remember the name of. About 30 min later I was sitting at my desk when I got link from my friend. I opened it and it was a web page about the game we had been trying to remember the name of, S.T.U.N. Runner. So I read through the page and when I got to the bottom I noticed something funny. The page had a link that said there was an actual S.T.U.N. Runner up for auction on Ebay for $279. What quickly followed was a round of emails, phone calls and a visit to our building's head of facilities. So my co-worker was in for 50% of the $279 and $198 shipping and our head of facilities said if we won the auction he would find a place in the building for us to put it. One week and about $500 later we were the proud owners of one of the coolest arcade games ever, S.T.U.N. Runner!

Here a cute co-worker enjoys a game of S.T.U.N. Runner!

Look at her go!

My partner in S.T.U.N. Running crime enjoys a game in stereo 3D. Look how freaking awesome S.T.U.N. Runner looks!
