Static Colorwheel

Bought!

Something I'm frequently tempted to do is to stop in at the Miriam Switching Post. They always have something there that wasn't there before. Once upon a time I purchased a dresser there, but I've not since removed the tag that prevented others from buying the same one before I could find a large vehicle and pick it up. I kind'f like having it there, and at the moment it makes for a picture of the day.

The person who filled out this tag should be grateful she didn't have to figure out how to spell kamoranakrre.

A Fair Use

Although I took this picture with my own camera, it contains the trademark of a company. They'd probably get mad at me (and sue) if I print off copies of this picture and slapped them on the side of a product. (Furthermore, if they didn't sue, they could lose their trademark--even if it's a suit they ended up losing.) However, I hope they don't sue, 'cause I'm using this logo nominatively. Though he may not rank as highly as a certain Admiral, most people I've consulted would prefer to see this Captain on their bottle, and possibly in the picture of the day.

The contents of this bottle were more useful yesterday when OK Go and Reel Big Fish came to town for the semiannual W.I.L.D., but kamoranakrre hasn't figured out how to send liquids through the Internet so this picture will have to do for tonight.

Construction

And Now for Something Not At All Different(!)

I've posted so many pictures of various construction goings-on already, but if there are two things that you can count on the school to be doing, it's planting flowers and building something new. Another crane...or, well...maybe it's the same crane? Still, it's another picture of the day.

Of the current projects, kamoranakrre is most excited about this going up, because it's just like that one building on the Gateway Mall in terms of disrupting the continuity of the strip of open space between the Athletic Complex and Olin Library. (Well, maybe that's not the real reason...)

Pizzeria Due

The Exception

Almost all the new buildings on campus have a very similar architectural style. Yet over in the art school, they did things completely differently. I really only have occasion to visit this section when looking for books of historical photographs of the city. (Apparently for the vast part of the twentieth century nobody was regularly posting pictures on the Internet. For some reason, they favoured making large books, if you can imagine!) So, yes, anyway, where were we? Oh--the picture of the day.

Although it's stategically partially obscured by a column (and the exposure time) in this picture, kamoranakrre always imagines this scene is a Coca-Cola advert since there's a lit machine on the third floor right in the middle of the windowed stairwell. Maybe sometime if he's thinking about it, he'll take a picture that captures that effect.

Of the current projects, kamoranakrre is most excited about this going up, because when it's done they're planning to remove the rest of Eliot Hall. It's an interesting building for its solid concrete look (and all the more strange since they demolished part of it), but not the nicest.

Into the Woods

It's that time once again. Yesterday we saw a picture from one of my favourite times for photographs (because of how the sky glows blue on the slower exposures). If you thought there was too much colour in that one, then just for you is another picture of the day.

kamoranakrre has been known to complain about how for the most part these small writing surfaces are on the wrong side of the seat, but, having sat at one with said surface on the correct side, the problem is really just that they're super-small. This building is still neat, though, what with the observatory on the roof and all.

The Search Continues...

It's been awhile, but the quest for delicious custard is certainly not over. In November we were way out in Wentzville, but today we ventured to another location just off a highway for the picture of the day.

lcd_cow likes this one for having sugar-free selections, but kamoranakrre still thinks further investigation into all the choices is in order...

An Announcement

I recently received a fancy card with some Latin text on it. It reminds me of New Orleans because that city has plaques all around it that hyphenate the word Luisiana to wrap it to two lines. It also reminds me of a headline in The Onion: WA- (Headline continued on page 2.). Of course, neither of those have a fancy 'A', and neither of those is the picture of the day.

kamoranakrre has always appreciated the amazing flexibility of Latin word order.

I'm...Backwards!

One of the benefits of living where I do is the ability to conveniently walk (or, even better, ride my bike) to several convenient establishments including the home of delicious soup-in-a-breadbowl, the St Louis Bread Co. While on my way down the street the wind was blowing enough to unfurl the flags. From where I was standing, however, they were blowing "the wrong way". It seemed fitting, though, since the decoration on the building is a backwards f on this side as well. But don't take my word for it--take a look in the picture of the day.

kamoranakrre didn't bring himself to walk backwards from this point, however, 'cause the traffic turning onto and off of Clayton Road isn't about to yield to someone who's not looking where he's going.

That's Not Confusing at All...

Although it was nice of them to make the coins "golden" to make them more distinguishable from quarters, putting George Washington's face on the front sure didn't help. Two dollars and two quarters appear in the picture of the day.

kamoranakrre still wouldn't mind if they brought back Eisenhower dollars. Maybe as a tribute to the Interstate turning fifty-something? No?
