A good cardiologist

It is fall again, and time for Erin and I to go to the Maryland Renfaire. Thought I share a few pics of our experience. Well, at least the ones Erin allows me to post.

This year while waiting for the gates to open we saw some excellect Russian, although I think they were employed by the faire. This was before Erin was given opposite orders and almost trampled by the King


This 6 foot 8 guy felt self concious about not being 7'8, so he had horn give the illusion of tallness

the King in his natural position: bellowing

I love the queen's expression here.


 The bubble lady had amazing grace of movement

My pretty kitty

dig those eyelashes

Neat, but what are the wings for?

I like the look of her snood

Had to get this shot.

Yes, a red headed Jewess

Very good looking woman, and I'm fairly sure she was well aware of it.

What is the guy in plaid doing, taking a piss on the person in stocks head?

Reflections on mortality

Yes...most booberific.

There's a charm here.

Pretty pirate

Why was Jen playing with her boobs? I don't recall.

My Erin. Damn she's sexy

Smoking! Gasp!

I was surprised, it was near the end of the day, yet I hardly had to retouch this shot

Odd, but sweet man who talked about his eight cat. That is until a much odder man began to smell him.


Faire well!

There are lots of things that make no sense to me:

The current state of the Republican party. That so many people vote for a party that is clearly not in their financial best interest. Even the billionaires that you would think it is in their best interest, seem to forget they need a populace that can actually afford the prodect they are selling. Supply side economic don't work. You want the biggest example of supply side economics in history, look no further than 1960s and 1970 USSR. The power was concentrated at the top, and those that controlled the means of production....the Communist party, made the goods that they thought appropriate. That didn' go so well. The biggest problem with supply side economics is that you give a controller of means of production more capital, if their is no demand, they sit on the capital.

Yup Supply Side economics missed some very basic nature of capitalism.

However, you look at an example of when the middle class was flush with skills and money: US 1951. When their is an ample supply of skilled labor, and the labor has cash...the powerful will borrow capital to meet that demand, and hire those skilled workers to make the product.

The second is how in the US, 60 years after we split the atom, that religion is still the primary paradigm. If you don't believe in an invisible guy in the sky that's talk about in bronze age faerie tales...you are weird and unelectible to a position governmental trust.
What is something that just doesn't make sense to you?
You think three generations after really showing that primal forces are at work that people would trust in science and reason as a primary way of explaining the world, rather than relying on what a bunch of goat hearder in tents wrote down a xouple of thousand years ago.
Equals, pah. They make $1.05 for every dollar a man makes, men are assumed guilty until proven inocent of rape charges, and EEO laws and divorce law favor them.

And men are assumed to be savages and get to live ten years less.
Do you think women are treated as equals? What changes would you like to see?
This year, like the previous couple, Erin and I went for a four day immersion into the deep geek world of adult Lego enthusiasts, or AFOLs: Adult Fans of Lego. Not the the young ones weren't there in numbers, but the primary drive is adults.

We will start off with what I consider a clever idea. The Lego convention, rendered in Lego.

while certainly not an accurate model, it certainly conveys the feel of how it is on public days. That is on Saturday and Sunday when the public, for a fee, get to come in and look at everyone's creations

Which book would you want to see turned into a videogame?

How about a puzzle, escape game based on Dante's Inferno?

What's Harry going to do now that the series is over?

Either this is a really existential question...or an incredibly moronic one.

What happens to a fictional character after the last page of a book is turned?

I'm guessing though, that this is really closer to a moronic one, given the timing and wording.
