I love your username! I got to see the massive wall of dire wolf skulls at the La Brea tar pit museum years ago--staggering and so, so cool.
Anyway, I just wanted to come say hi--we're just about the same size and age and so if you need a buddy we can prod at one another.
"To shed all the illusory rights & hesitations of history demands the economy of some legendary Stone Age--shamans not priests, bards not lords, hunters not police, gatherers of paleolithic laziness, gentle as blood, going naked for a sign or painted as birds, poised on the wave of explicit presence, the clockless nowever." --Hakim Bey, TAZ
