I dunno how often I'll be using Game Center on iOS, but if you can figure out my account you can send me a friend request. Hint: My username should be obvious, and my account is that plus @me.com.

Note, tho, if it's not obvious who you are and I don't recognize you, I'll probably ignore the request.

+Reveille D'Giovanetti 's band is rehearsing in the shop today. I was afraid I'd be accosted by some shitty garage band music while I work, but instead I'm being serenaded by classic popular jazz and big band sounds! <3

It actually kind of takes me back to my college days, when the art and music departments shared a building. I'd be working on paintings or sketches in my studio and would hear folks rehearsing down the hall. ^.^

Hey, anyone (especially in the Bay Area) looking to buy a used 24" iMac? Details and specs here: http://cooner.livejournal.com/85408.html

Just figured I'd check with friends and acquaintances before resorting to eBay or CraigsList. ^.^

+Buck Hopper Alas, yeah. Keep checking, tho ... I thought I read they're rolling it out over the course of the day or something.

You know what I'd like to see? (Unless it exists and I'm missing it.) A way to specify which of your Circles do or don't appear in your default Stream.

I know, I know, you can select each Circle individually to read posts from just the people in that Circle. But what I'd like is if the main Google+ page -- the first thing I see when I click my Google+ bookmark -- were restricted to just posts from, say, my "Friends," "Family," and "Locals" Circles, without being cluttered with posts from other Circles like "Acquaintances" or "People I Don't Really Know Very Well" ... the ones I'd prefer to look at more occasionally and in a separate stream. Since G+ has the ability to organize your contacts as finely as you'd like, I'd like to see that organization benefit the main page and primary stream.

Anywhere you can make suggestions like this? The "Feedback" button seems geared more towards outright bugs and errors in the interface ...

Yeah, seems that it could be as simple as a "Include in default stream" checkbox setting when you click on the circle's name on the management page. I'll vote for that! :D

Oh hai, it's National Coming Out Day!

I was kind of a late bloomer on the whole sex and relationship thing. I had a couple token girlfriends in grade school and in college, but they were prettty chaste and didn't really amount to much. For the most part I didn't really think about it much, until late in college I began to recognize more of an emotional and physical attraction to other guys. I self-identified as bisexual for awhile (of the "I could fall in love with someone regardless of gender" type) until eventually I realized that, while a noble sentiment, that probably wasn't true for me.

I've never been particularly militant or out-loud-proud, but after having grown up as a teen in the conservative 80s, for awhile I was pretty content with the idea of living a quiet and private life forever, maybe hoping at best to someday have a subdued domestic partnership with someone. That changed in the early 00s when President Bush announced his support for a Federal Marriage Amendment to permanently define marriage between a man and a woman in federal law. My reaction, to be blunt, was a colorful "FUCK YOU" and a realization that I enjoyed neither having my ability to pursue any road to happiness suppressed, nor being used as a political football to whip voters into a frenzy. That was when I began to self-identify fully as gay, and became to come out gradually to many of my friends and acquaintances.

It was some time later, when I was a few years into a long-term relationship, that I decided to come out to my family: my brother first, and then my parents. They were a bit surprised, but fortunately understanding and supportive. Over time, with continuing conversations and a new perspective, they began to understand the importance of things like marriage equality, repeal of DADT, and other issues.

I was very fortunate in how my family handled the situation. (Plus, I was no longer dependent on them when I came out, so didn't have as much at risk.) The sad truth is that not everyone is so lucky. Coming out obviously can be a transformative personal experience; the relief of being known and accepted for who you are can be exhilarating. But the more people come out, and the more people realize they know gay people and that they're just people, not unlike themselves ... Well, maybe that's fewer people who believe that being gay is a choice; fewer parents who kick their kids out of the house or force them into ex-gay ministries; fewer people voting to support anti-gay laws which only hurt a minority and do nothing for anyone else; fewer families who unnecessarily feel shame and disappointment and guilt for their children when they should be feeling love and support.

It's important to be visible in our community. People find it easy to discriminate against and hate the invisible minority. However, when they realize that us gay folk are the people they work with, live near, or are even family, it's harder for them hate. They need to realize that we are good people in their community who work hard and want nothing more than a shot at happiness. That's why it's important to come out and be visible instead of invisible. +Sam Hunt It's not about shoving sexuality in ones face. it's about respect. When a co-worker or someone in one's family asks if one has a girlfriend should one lie and thus belittle the most important person in their life? It's very normal for straight people to talk about their loved ones but gay people are expected to shut up and keep their relationships hidden. It's bullshit.

Quick Casey update, by the way: She's doing much better now; looks like it was just a stomach bug or something she ate. Her appetite is back, the lethargy is gone and she's moving around better again; she's getting back to herself. I'm weaning her from scrambled eggs and rice back to her regular food.

She's sitting with me now at a movie night with some friends. I have to remember that every day is precious.

Thought experiment for the day:

Imagine any line of Han Solo dialog. But performed by Owen Wilson.

Okay. I've never been much of a Facebook user, but since I managed to get into Google+, I'm gonna poke around and see how it works for me.

No promises but who knows, maybe I'll actually have some activity on this page eventually. :)
