Atacama

In which I make an exception to my usual rules about music

I'm not fan of Aimee Mann - her contributions to Magnolia notwithstanding, which were wonderful (it's more that I don't normally listen to this kind of music) - but I felt compelled to buy her new album:



What can I say? I'm a huge Gary Taxali fan, and this looks beautiful.

Marriage update

San Diego county: http://arcc.co.san-diego.ca.us/docs/SameGenderMarriage-2008-05.pdf

Los Angeles county: http://www.lavote.net/GENERAL/PDFS/PRESS_RELEASES/05152008-013444.pdf

San Francisco county: http://www.sfgov.org/site/countyclerk_index.asp?id=30548 and http://www.sfgov.org/site/countyclerk_index.asp?id=80897

In short, no real news at this point. Sounds like June 16 is going to be the absolute earliest we'll be able to get married; ideally, kingfuraday's Dad would have performed the ceremony, but that's likely not going to happen due to scheduling conflicts.

Another wild idea I had was to get my nephew Mark to perform the ceremony - I could make him a pastor for $5 (thanks, Universal Life Church!) - but it looks like California state law prevents that from happening (you have to be at least 18 years of age to perform a marriage).

Please stand by...
