Mushroom's photos


  • occupation: foole (54:52)

    So the end of the year has come and there's a lot I could say about 2014, but ehh. I finished my Picture A Week and even came out one ahead, that's one accomplishment. There may be one next year, we'll see, but first thing I'll have to buy a membership…

  • New Atari game: Stay Frosty 2 (53:52)

    (This year has 53 weeks. And I think there was one week where I thought I hadn't uploaded a picture and wound up posting a second one. Oh well, bonus, you get 54 photos.) This game just came out a week ago, and my copy arrived today. :) "Stay Frosty 2 i…

  • existential (52/52)

    Sign seen at the Seattle Center. It's supposed to look like something a homeless person would hold, but it's wood made to look like cardboard and it was outside an offbeat crafts bazaar so likely was made by an artist.


  • "Christmas" "special" (51:52)

    The things we see when we are driving down the street. Which quotemarks are the ironic ones?

  • Perler dala horse as a fridge magnet (50:52)

    A thing I made for my friend of Swedish heritage, who has several wooden ones ones on her refrigerator, made from Perler beads using a pattern seen online and improved upon. She received it a couple days ago and absolutely loves it for being pretty, thou…

  • it's time to clean your office when your cat discovers mountain-climbing (49:52)

    An action shot of Pistachio and the mess behind me. I have this tendacy to stack stuff up rather than, say, put it away or figure out an actual place where it should belong. That and I have a ton of shit and could use a more effective storage system -- ok…


  • entrada (48:52)

    I spent a lot of time over the previous warmer months painting the house and changing stuff that looked bad or was worn out. There's a lot left to do in the backyard and the eaves haven't been painted white yet so don't look up from here, but from the st…

  • lingon in my front yard (47:52)

    I planted a couple lingonberry bushes in the front yard to see if they'd survive. They actually are doing pretty well, to my surprise.

  • through the mirror darkly, with bonus red (46:52)

    I finally have reached the point that I can't read what's right in front of me without optics, so I consented to getting reading glasses. (NOT bifocals because I can see out a ways fine. NOT computer glasses because I can see the screen just fine -- it's…


  • Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer in Perler beads (45:52)

    I've been doing this sort of thing a bunch lately. Mostly videogame sprites but this pattern, found on HardcorePerler.com, appealed to me since the holidays are quickly approaching. Growing up, there was always a nail on one of the walls near the kitchen…

  • hydrogen? helium? (44:52)

    I forgot to post something last weekend. This particular photo is from Packwood's Labor Day fleamarket.

  • why my iPod still doesn't work (43:52)

    Months ago I found an iPod Mini 2nd-gen 6gb at a thriftstore for a dollar. It worked fine, but the battery was about to give up (100% to 90% in 1 minute, 90% to 80% in 10 minutes, 80% to 35% in 2-3 hours, then 35% to 0% instantly). So I decided that when…


  • 34th Street, 8:11pm, October 17 of 2010 (42:52)

    I guess I missed last week, and didn't really want to post anything relating to starting a new job the day I should have uploaded something. So at some point recently I was looking through the bin where I keep the old RAM sticks and retired camera memo…

  • parakeets: statues, clock, urn (41:52)

    Seen at a yardsale locally. The owner went to a nursing home, her daughter had no information about why she had this mess. Various people said they wanted their ashes placed in that urn.

  • Mount Rainier over Orting, WA (40:52)

    This weekend, Chase Garden had one of their plant sales and free wanders about the grounds, so there I was taking in this view.


  • using my tech support skills in real life (39/52)

    One of the things we'd tell people when they were having trouble with their DSL was, "could you take your computer and modem out to the box where the phone line connects to the house and plug the modem in there?" 99% of people won't do that even if they…

  • new back driveway lighting (38:52)

    My house (previously owned by Crackheads™) came with a mercury vapor lamp streetlight in the backyard, which was cool and all but buzzed really loud, the sensor on the top that was supposed to turn it off when it was light out didn't work, the plastic shi…

  • damaged technology (37:52)

    Was at the Packwood annual citywide fleamarket and came across this table with two tablet computers. Great but, uh, not great. The bigger one doesn't power on, the smaller one does come up but the touch function of the screen doesn't work so all you get…
