The situation in San Diego seems to have become a lot scarier in the last couple of days.

NASA has released some incredible photos (1) (2) that show the smoke that is pouring off the coast. In fact the fires are moving so fast that this Google map set up by the LA Times, is said to have more updated info than CNN does right now. Hope everyone down there stays safe.

Then going to check out them Upper Playground shows and events with Dave Choe, Retna, and Saber Saturday and Sunday... Anything I should check out while here? Any good shows (there are always good shows to check out. I know)... Since all of my digital cameras are dead, I brought the Epic, and you know what? It's not as easy finding 35mm film these days. Nowhere in the airport did they sell it. I knew I should have stocked up before getting on the plane... Gots to get some of that good good 3,200 speed, and what's the deal with B&H closed on Saturdays. I call bullshit!
