does anyone know anything about flip cameras?  i'm interested in using one for something like this:

this is my friend liz from high school, who is sort of brilliant and incredibly creative.  she and her sister started doing these videos, and i LURVE them.  

:: in other news, check out deconstructing dinner, a crazy-intense canadian radio show/podcast about intellectual food issues.  (via aaron)

:: also, veller's book is about to come out!  if you live in berkeley, come with us to cheer her on and heckle her and MP at berkeley arts & letters on june 18th!  

:: cherries and apricots are starting.  squash blossoms are in full swing.  it was 90 degrees this weekend.  summer is almost here.  if i could only find ten minutes to get the paul robeson tomato starts into the ground...
