Om migI taught high school social studies. Now I teach others to teach high school social studies. I have a seemingly unlimited desire to learn about culture, biology and astronomy. I am curious about the effects of race, war and Imperialism on culture.

The rain. Fresh air. Dark places. A chorus of crickets. The greeting of a cat. That Nick Drake LP playing in darkness. Fireflies. Double mocha (from Caffe Pergolesi). Origin stories. Serenades. Thunderstorms. Zines. Finding beauty. Encouraging beauty. The 1939 NY World's Fair. The surreal. Swedish fish. Staying up late. Sleeping in. Being in water. One more time around the block because the song isn't over yet. Viruses. Quantum physics. Dada. The situationists. I spent a great deal of time working on my Website WikiSCUM, which documents the history of underground music in Santa Cruz, California.

Om mit bibliotekI began cataloging my books when I was nine. I wrote numbers in all of them, and placed them in a box outside my bedroom door with a sign (which I thought was very inviting). I was disappointed when my older siblings didn't browse my stacks or inquire about getting a library card. But that didn't stop me from cataloging my books and baseball cards.

From there my library cataloging system went on a 30+ year journey from graph paper to Lotus 1-2-3 to Q&A to Sesame to LibaryThing. My library itself also went through many developments (expansions, contractions, phases, trends), and then I got married...and my wife also loves/has (lots of) books (but cares not for cataloging).

For various reasons, in Oct 2018 I deleted all the books catalogued on this account, and started re-entering everything from scratch.

P.S. I give most of my books five stars. Why would I keep any book that I thought was only 3 stars?
