jeremyriad Does anybody know if this window on MacArthur Blvd means that Temple ov Psychick Youth is starting up in Oakland?! It's a warehouse right before you get onto the freeway. Oakland needs magick! I'm going to hashtag for help: #TOPY #psychictv #theetempleovpsychickyouth #magick #oakland 2w

jeremyriad Are you following @sergeysafonov's amazing illustrated cat project @kisa.kuku? If not, and you like cats and warm beverages, I highly recommend it. Moscow-based Sergey is an extremely talented artist/designer and a good friend, too. Add some whimsy to your IG feed with @kisa.kuku. I like this so much I will probably come out of blog hibernation soon just to write about it. #caturday #ladybugs 2w

jeremyriad My first feeling: this is depressing... Followed by my first thought: maybe it's good to show children that you can still build a castle next to a dumpster and a freeway? #oakland 2w

jeremyriad Whenever life feels overblown or people are making too big a deal about something, just imagine a shrink ray putting all that noise into the perspective of a dollhouse or a tiny fairytale world. I call this coping technique "balancing the scales." May it work for you as well. 3w

jeremyriad This is absolutely fascinating (to me, at least). You are looking at an acorn woodpecker granary. These "clown-faced" woodpeckers live communally and, over generations, can drill ~ 50,000 holes in trees and telephone polls--in which they store their food (acorns). I walked by a few trees that would make human Doomsday Preppers with massive pantries seem ill-prepared. Another hiker told me you can watch the woodpeckers defending their stash by dive-bombing on thieving Jays and squirrels. I have to report to work, so regrettably I can't do that right now, but @mynameisdelme, you should tell your most clever squirrels that there's free lunch for the brave in California. #nature 3w

jeremyriad "In the valley of the morning sun / all is lost / all is won." Quote from Kendra Smith (ex-Opal, Mazzy Star off the album Five Ways of Disappearing, and spoiler alert, she did pretty much disappear. Also: I took this picture after the previous one. Nature is so magical.) 3w
