Nothing more than... feelings.

Now that I have music everywhere constantly, I can't help but sing. As I walk down the street. It does keep the pandhandlers from bothering me. My biggest problem is not getting run over by people who don't understand the concept of one way streets.
The video camera thing comes on the heels of my videographer post at Otto's recital. Turns out some people are very camera shy, among them Otto's girlfriend and mom. I just wanted to record their presence for posterity, you know? Anyway, El told me that I wasn't going to be on the tape at all since I'd never turned it on myself. But then I said to the mic: "I'm 6 foot tall... incredibly handsome..." And that's how Otto's kids will think of me when they see their dad's tape. Years hence. And when you think about it, that's what all this personal site on the internet nonsense is all about too, right? Being on camera without being on camera.

Is that iPod in your pocket?

So, Kip, be truthful. What shameful songs are hidden on your iPod, buried there amidst the indie pop? Not that there's anything at all shameful about "Rainbow Connection".

The thing about the iPod
Posted at 12:56:48 PM on May 8, 2003 by kip
There's SO much music in this thing that to browse it is insane, unless you know exactly what you're looking for. I'll admit to a few guilty pleasures, such as Abra Moore's "Four Leaf Clover," Metallica's "Hero of the Day" (see the Gwyneth story for the story about that), and LFO's "Summer Girls."

The joke in the strip that I forgot to document is that there is so much wire hanging around when you connect the iPod to the remote to the headphones that Bunny really could wind the cord around Bull's neck a bunch of times like in the final panel. The next remote should have cord retracting abilities, or at least a place to wind it.
