Now that we've gotten actual snow, even those who didn't hate the site's background are probably pretty sick of it. So I set out to make an irritatingly clever replacement. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to make my idea work with the site, composition-wise, and the actual photos have some problems with shadows and the graffiti fading. I had to use the burn tool in photoshop to make it even this legible -- and you can't even see that I'm rocking out to the Dave Matthews Band! Oh well. Although it won't work with the design, our anonymous neighbor's suggestion would still be a great alternate blog title.

Yuppies Out Of Shaw!

And while I'm at it, how about some more graffiti? I shouldn't encourage these idiots, but at least they're more imaginative than simple taggers...

There was this guy in Austin named "foetus" whose gig was to tag "foetus" on absolutely everything. ceiling of a parking garage? if he hadn't done it before, check. a friend of mine claims to have dated him briefly, and she said that (of course) she ended up with a fridge full of foetus-marked goods early on.
