    On the way home from Camano we stopped in Oly for lunch and I dragged the family out to campus for a tour. It was raining and no one wanted to get out of the car except me when I  snapped this picture of Modular Housing Unit 314 A+B. The mods seemed oddly deserted, there were only a few cars parked in the lot, most of the shades were drawn and I only saw one person moving a guitar amp. Maybe everyone went on a road trip somewhere together and those who didn’t were indoors making bongs in darkened rooms. The bike shelters were falling apart and the mods themselves  haven’t been painted since 1994 when they renovated and painted them this grey color. The mod socal space/ RA mod is gone and repaced with a larger structure (laundy area?) and a garden. I went up to main campus but again no one was willing to get out of the car so we just turned around at the bus stop.

    DrumsAs I put more distance on this old frame of mine, it’s easy to forget or play down the impact of the old school.  For instance, if I was given the choice of seeing Farflung or White Hills playing live while I was completely wrapped in duct tape and lit on fire, or seeing the remaining members of the Grateful Dead play a springtime show in an old-growth glade, I’d totally pick Farflung or White Hills.

    But, there was a time when the GD were at the helm of the ship, and I gotta say they did a damn good job steering us through the nebula and out through the crystal edges of open space.  The mix below (from Aurthurmag) contains some pretty freakin’ awesome tracks.  I’ll be saying thanks the next time I see an afterimage tracer that’s going in it’s own direction.
