So, i was sitting in my room minding my own business, playing warcraft or something, when in comes this spider.

I booted its butt right back outside.

Anyway, Eli is putting the final touches on our first EP which will be called 'Malibu Mudplow' and feature such hits as 'Xenon' and 'I want to be a Post-modern Hunter Gatherer'. We were supposed to record 'Suck at Boats' or 'Indie Party' today but we watched Kill Bill and i applied for a job instead. Oh well.

busy like, whoa

So this week has been a mix of getting stuff ready for
the new SCA crew, organizing some new vegetation map
stuff, and doing plant sampling at 3 AM (it was
something i did in Bishop and hated but it's not bad
here, as long as it isnt several days in a row). This
weekend i will be hopefully heading up to Joshua Tree
to see the wildflower/plant display after the nearly
unheard-of amount of rain they have had this winter.
Also, we may be re-recording the Xenon song and a few
others. Our band still needs a name.

The weather has shifted into summer mode for now. It
will probably rain more before the season is done, but
this week it is very warm and sunny, with coastal fog.
I would like to see even more rain but still, the sun
sure is nice.

Why did i make this post? I wanted to see if i could
post to the blog using E-mail. we will see.

Soon we will be recording a new and improved Xenon song, along with a few other songs possibly including 'You Suck At Boats' and 'I Want To Be A Post-Modern Hunter Gatherer'.

Wildflower Report

After all this rain, we are setting up for what could be an amazing wildflower year. However, it could also be a crappy one... sometimes when it rains a lot, the weeds have a boom year and out-grow the native wildflowers. It is yet to be seen.

Either way, I added a link to a good wildflower report page, on my links column to the left... it only addresses California but is a pretty good site for the state.

Water pours over the Ringe Dam on Malibu Creek. So much mud and crud comes down Malibu Creek that the lake is long gone, and the dam is totally useless now. It impedes Steelhead Trout from swimming into the canyon, and poses a possible hazard if it collapses, so eventually it will be removed... which will prove to be expensive and difficult. Posted by Hello

The same storm over the Liberty Canyon area... it's so green now! Posted by Hello

I drove through this storm on the way home from work... some pretty intense downpours out there behind the Jack In the Box. Some areas got over an inch of rain today from scattered storms but others got almost none. Posted by Hello
