I guess it’s almost a month ago that I went to Yosemite for the first time. I went with my friend Dave and his girlfriend Sarah, who’d just gotten off the plane from the UK.

Dave has gone multiple times a year for many years, so I just let him say what we should do. We went hiking from Glaciar Point down to the valley floor. We ate and drank. We lay in a field and tried to pick out climbers on the face of El Capitan. We found a grove of Giant Sequoias. We did a midnight hike up to Mirror Pond and saw it again in the day time.

Photographically, I brought my D80 and my ’60s-era Yashica A TLR. (I ran Velvia 50 through the Yashica.)

my best contract modification

I was looking through my lease today and noticed that there was a clause about how the owners may enter the premises (with prior warning) during business hours, from 7am-7pm.

I don’t remember doing this, but on the lease, I’ve crossed out 7am, written in 9am and initialed it. 7 to 9am is not during business hours; it is during sleeping hours.

(for the iTunes file, simply import all the songs to your library and then go to File->library->import playlist and then select the song list (the txt file). you should now have the 2009may in your iTunes with all the songs in the correct order).

Go ahead and check out the playlist (below) or the liner notes.
