|Keeping up with my peeps
Thanks to my good friend verso
, LJ users who don't want to bookmark yet another RSS feed so that they can read my ever-poetic ramblings over on my non-LJ blog AttentionDeficitDavid.com
can now keep tabs on me here.
Verso set up a LJ syndication feed for my other blog. Just go to this syndication link
to add it, and you can keep reading me inside your own buttery soft LJ interface.

For a long time now I've been frustrated with LiveJournal. The communities are near dead, no one replies to posts, and it seems like of my friends list only Nikki ever writes anything.
LJ hasn't, IMHO, kept up with the useability trends of "Web 2.0" and that's a shame. It was a great place, with great communities that are all now next to useless.
But I'm not giving up on Blogging, I"m moving into a bigger space over with Moveable Type and you can find me at attentiondeficitdavid.com. You can, of course, RSS feed me.
Instead of blogging less, I"ll be blogging more, and you can expect me talking not only about the minutia of my life, but musing on technology, cooking, cycling, etc. The stuff I'd write about if LJ didn't suck so badly as to make me not want to bother.
So, I'm moving out of Avenue Q to the Lower East Side, follow along if you'd like.

|What the fuck?
This is perhaps the most fuck-tarded error message I've ever seen on a bulletin board forum system.
>>You cannot make another post so soon after your last; please try again in a short while.<<
What? Posting is all you do? I know it's four AM but wake the fuck up and let me post, computer.

When worlds collide. Anime festival meets cheerleading convention at
Orange County Convention Center.
Sorry for the blur, I was trying to shoot without flash to not be so
obvious, but really when a group of cheerleaders are posing with a
guy who thinks he's an anime character, maybe I just should have
turned on the flash.
You'd think these girls were somehow being anime, but no, they are
dressed like this completely on their own.
|These are the trade shwos in your neighborhood
I'm currently attending the PMA tadeshow in Orlando, which is housed t the utterly massive Orlando Convention Center (also called the Orange County Convention Center).
The photo trade show I'm attending is located in a hall to the south of the center, my hotel is to the north. Since the winds were upwards of one-thousand-miles-per-hour today, I decided to walk through the hall.
That's when I realized I must be in a parallel universe, because the show doors opened on hundreds and hundreds of cheerleaders, here for a competition. Suddenly I started to giggle, and to say "giggity giggity giggity" but rather than oggle I kept walking, as I was late for a meeting.
So I kep walking and hit the next hall, which is hosting...wait for it...a manga/animee traade show. Picture plenty of goth girls dressed like sailor moon, and teen boys dressed like Dance Dance Revolution controllers.
I nearly shit myself in a fit of giggles.
By comparison, this show is not the least bit interesting.

Sad to watch someone fall during their routine, sadder to hear the commentary from one of the NBC announcers:
"The difference between Sasha and other skaters is that others skate to Romeo and Juliet and she IS Juliet."
EDIT: After watching the end of the skating competition, I see that Sasha ingested poison in order to trick the judges into thinking she had died. Bode Miller entered the rink and found her, presumed she was dead, and cut his throat with her skates.
I guess the commentator was right after all.

|Osprey eats lunch
Osprey eats lunch
Originally uploaded by davidjschloss.
So, this one deserves a bit of a back story. Abby and I were going to
lunch with our friends the LeCroy family, in NYC today. On the way to
lunch we noticed a dead rat on the sidewalk. Not unusual, it's New
York after all.
On the way back, this Osprey was dining on the rat. This shot was
from about four feet away from the bird, I guess when you have the
power of flight, and a good rat for lunch, you're not all that timid
I was carrying Alice, the LeCroy's daughter on my shoulders when I
was shooting this. After we walked away I said "that was really neat
huh?" as Alice is pretty into nature. "Yeah!" she said "that was
neat. And also, a little bit disgusting."
