Total sidebar.

People started growing coffee in California in the past decade. It's expensive and it gets good press but I hear it's mediocre from the one roaster I know who tried it.

I've wondered if we will learn to love Robusta.

I hope genetic engineering can improve it's taste.

I've seen more movable coops like this around lately

We've come a long ways... You're a chicken hipster now.

Update to my day.

The leaky pipe in the basement is in the bathroom wall up stairs. Plumber is tearing out the wall right now.

Congratulations!

It's a totally cool looking house, hope to see some shots of the inside.

2:13 AM: The bakery delivery guy set the alarm and walked out the door without locking it or closing it all the way.

2:14 AM: The alarm goes off and I get a phone call.

2:23 AM: I arrive at the shop, ready to chop a motherfucker up with a machete. Not a bad response time but I could shave a minute or two off it.

After that, look at the alarm codes, piece the whole thing together, make an angry call to the bakery voice mail (wonder what I said, angry and only half awake), smoke a cig and drink a soda water.

Go home and try to get back to sleep while suffering the remains of a cold.

Not going to be fun calling them back today, been pretty much hating on them for fucking up my orders the last two weeks. Had trouble with some street drinkers yesterday at the shop, was pretty certain that they had smashed in my window, I suppose I'm glad it was the delivery guy.

Going to get coffee and breakfast now.

Easier to just blame Comey and learn nothing.

The guy has two good options.

First and best, be magnanimous and not sweat the girl. Gives the best chance for people to appreciate his work in the way he intended it, yea the girl will be fucking with the bull but oh well. He comes off as gracious and open minded. He can see the privately but he doesn't come off as a dick and people can choose to enjoy his work for the reasons he made it or not.

Second is take his bull and go home. He no longer has to withstand the hideous indignity of his work being mocked by a girl or people interpreting his art in a way he didn't intend. He looks like a cranky old asshole but at the same time, the pain is over.

He's taking a third path. Threatening to sue, raging against a little girl and all that she stands for, enhancing the add campaign, making his bull look like an even greater aggressor than he did all ready, making capital look like a bully and he's going to lose this fight. The longer it goes on the worse he will look and the more sullied the image of the bull will become.

It's a fantastic bull statue, powerful and awesome. The girl statue is cleaver an charming. No matter what happens, the little girl is going to win the day. Tim for Di Modica to decide how he wants himself and his work to be remembered.

    He dropped it under a Christmas tree, not on Christmas.

Oh, that's way different?

I don't know why anyone would care to avoid this enormously important controversy of an snitty artist whining about the fact that he can't control how people perceive a piece of art that he decided to leave in a public place.

Every artist has the message and merit of their work challenged. He should take his bull back or deal with the fact that he doesn't like one spin on his work.

The fact that he dropped it off on Christmas makes it look a lot like a present to me, but WTE.

"I loan you this bull as a Christmas loan!"

Guy should just take his bull and his thin skin and go home.

You can beat the rap but not the ride. Prosecutors know that it will be nearly impossible to get these charges to stick outside a plea but that's not the point.

The charges themselves will bleed your average anarchist dry and provide an incentive against further political involvement. it's obviously the point of the whole thing, funny how the piece doesn't really touch on it.
