Found an old Dell laptop in a dumpster. Booted it up. It seemed like a clean Windows XP install, except I noticed a file in the Recent Documents list named poem 6-12-14 which was about a week prior to the day I had found the old Dell laptop. I opened this file from the My Documents folder and unsurprisingly yet surprisingly, there was a good poem written inside. I took this photo with your typical Samsung smartphone and later processed it using Photoshop on a much newer MacBook Air laptop, inverting the colors like a photo negative because I guess I thought it gave the poem a more fitting backdrop.
And this is my website. I started building it in 2005 and today you can browse over 1,000 pages of content spanning two decades of activity. As a software developer, artist, photographer, musician, collector, scientist, writer, and entrepreneur, this site grows steadily through a practice of "autodidocumenticism" with the basic idea that "life is art is content"!
Exciting news for the millions of Steve Or Steven Read fans out there - got a new used Panasonic NN-SN671S "The Genius" Sensor 1200W Microwave via nextdoor.com, and married a beautiful lady during the same week. To celebrate our new second-hand convenience appliance and our lifelong relationship commitment, I found some product images of the microwave and made a nice little GIF, mostly because the vendor provided photos showing the inside space of the unit both with and without food. The vendor website attempted to disallow me from downloading the images, but using my browser's inspection tools it was fairly easy to circumvent their script codes. The depicted bowl of possibly yet-to-be-cooked food appears to be chicken wings, or maybe crawdads. I doubt we will ever microwave a bowl of such items, but we paid a fair price for the unit and are a very happy couple so far.

JPEG file found recently on eBay, creator unknown. I seem to remember that the item for sale contained no photos other than this one. A damn fresh image, I would say.
The toy department at the Thrift Center in Vallejo CA, as encountered on a Sunday afternoon.
When you do a google image search for the words "shrimp scampi" the results are 99.99% color photos of plates of shrimp scampi, as if there was no other way for people to conceptualize the words shrimp scampi. I started the tumblr with the notion that the posts were going to be photos of menus and other shrimp scampi metadata, instead of the typical food porn, in hopes of eventually influencing the google image results. Variety is the spice of life.
Enjoyed making this series of linoleum block prints at Kala in Berkeley (in the old Heinz ketchup factory). Better documentation than a mobile photo to be posted here eventually of course, but what the hell here they are now. Some sort of quasi-spontaneous lattice protein folding thing. Maybe its a thought pattern, or a memory signature, the key to my cortex.
