Delenda Est Carthago

Why not delve into a twisted mind? Thoughts on the world, history, politics, entertainment, comics, and why all shall call me master!

Location: Mesa, Arizona, United States

I plan on being the supreme dictator of the country, if not the world. Therefore, you might want to stay on my good side. Just a hint: ABBA rules!


Stupid photos of America!

Yes, today we have pictures of the United States. I'm very sorry, but I can't traipse around the globe all the time! I had to get back to my home country and continue my studies, after all. In August 1992 I went back to Penn State for my senior year, and early in September I went with two of my friends to Pittsburgh to visit another friend of mine, who was attending the University of Pittsburgh (boo!) at the time. I hadn't been to Pittsburgh since 1984 when, to tell the truth, it was a hole. When I went back in 1992 they had done some serious urban renewal, and I really enjoyed my weekend there. I don't know if it's still that way, but 13 years ago, I was impressed by what a nice town it had become. So let's go to the pix!

This is the Cathedral of Learning on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh. Lots o' classes in there. It's pretty cool being up in it and looking down on the city. I wouldn't mind having classes there.

Why would I take a picture of this building? Any movie buffs recognize it? It's the building that was in The Silence of the Lambs, in which Hannibal Lector is caged before he breaks out and kills all those people. I doubt if the interior is where they filmed it, but the exterior is. It's a nice-looking building.

I took a picture of this building because it's weird. I like the medieval-looking tower surrounded by the modern mirror windows. Cool. Can anyone identify it for me?

This is a shot of downtown. We were on the south side of the river, right at the base of Mt. Washington.

This is my friend Dave hanging out with a bunch of musicians at a mall. Check out the hair on that guy! This is, in case you're wondering (and I know you are), the same Dave whose wedding I was invited to yet missed because I'm so stupid. His hair is much shorter these days.

This is my friend Chris Mooney, whom we were visiting. This is the morning after a strange night we spent full of 40s of Colt .45 and Percodan. That's a fun combination, I can tell you that much. I love this picture - "What exactly did we do last night?"

That's all for this time. Remember, I'm still blogging my novel - 9708 words done! Almost 20 percent there! If you like quality fiction ... well, you might want to search elsewhere. But if you like poisonings, strange, possibly evil books, mad monks, guys with stumps for hands, insidious government agencies, and polygamists - well, you can't go wrong!

Dave has the freakiest neck in America.

Of course, Astrid. I forgot you go to Pittsburgh occasionally. Why remains a mystery!!!
