This past weekend Miss T and I met up in San Francisco with a group of friends from Seattle. We spent Friday and Saturday galavanting about the city and eating copious amounts of food. Really. Good. Food. If you like, you can follow our sightseeing and eating tour at Maxpixpix on Picasa. If not, it […]

DI products gallery

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008 by calixton

It was a little over a year ago when Max Pictures started churning out DHARMA Initiative labels for the Lost-obsessed (you know, people like us). In that time we’ve created a lot of labels that no one but us is likely to ever use. So in an effort to grind out every last bit of […]

The King of Kong

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008 by calixton

Miss T and I recently watched The King of Kong, a story of struggle, failure, gamesmanship, tragedy, forthrightness, perseverance, and, triumph. And Donkey Kong. Lots and lots of Donkey Kong. Back in junior high I never got good at Donkey Kong, and, based on how devoted these folks are to their gaming, it’s probably a […]
