Rotating
welcome to Filty Grissom's Cafe and Mosh Pit

I LOVE IT HERE in ARIZONA! HAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! *insert raised finger toward last job*


MY DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES

1- I will strive to produce work worthy of myself.
2- I will remember to update my web sites.

(Apologies to "Citizen Kane")

NEWS UPDATE- To try and facilitate more of me actually writing stuff no one cares about (you know, a blog), note that the blog updates will continue on livejournal.com at FILTER'S FILLET OF SOUL

For all your walking needs--Filt and Spike go World Wide Walking! Check out our blogs, phots, and more here!

Kitty pics, yes, even more!

Sometime in the 20th century, late, a man by the name of Rendon produced a book called "Chicano Manifesto". A somewhat underground book, this text was seen (is seen) as significant for bringing together in one place many items of great significance to the Chicano Movimiento.

So what.

Hermanas, amigas, primas, y otras, bienvenido to the first world wide guey page for the CHICANA MANIFESTO.

ATTENDEZ-MOI! (or, HEY YOU!)-- on the blog page, (Semiregular whines, etc) there is a CSI:Crime Scene Investigation "Slash" fic. Don't read it if you're under 18 or bothered (heh) by same sex, well, sex.

While this is generally an informal page, I hope that something intelligent might come out of it-- I mean hell, I'm a PhD-- I must have some intelligent thought, right?! Plus-- maybe some links will guide y'all to a place on the web to call home.


Look above, right side, for the rest of the pages in the site-- don't miss the BiRant, because hey, why scream in a vacuum? (Or at a vacuum, for that matter...)
PS- There is now a Picture Page in the blog. So..check er out...PICS
MORE Pics! Yes! And they're still cute! AND ON THE BLOG PAGE THERE IS A PIC OF MY VACATION! YES, I DO TAKE THEM...

MOST EXCELLENT QUOTE OF THE OH, DECADE: "Australia gives good bird insult." --Spikers

And another Aussie take on US: "America can be quite embarrasing to persons of taste."

The blog has shifted to livejournal.com as of Thursday April 14th, 2005

HEY! If any wonderful BI would like to contribute a guest rant, please drop me a line! Think it would be wonderful...
