Naked Pictures

When I check in to see who has come here, I have recently found someone has logged in from the Security and Exchange Commission. Whoever you are, show yourself. Am I under investigation? Are you just someone working a dull government job looking to kill time? I won’t tell your boss. I’d also like to hear from "xo. war." again. This person said they were going to comment on every post here. He/she stopped at ten, but I can understand. I like what you wrote. I feel stalked and privileged.

I get a fair amount of searches from people looking for information about the "Ash Tree." I’m sorry but I’m not your man. Here’s a picture though. Click on it for information.



It’s got a fairly intense feel, but then all trees do. If I was another sort of person, I would research it, but not now. The title Ash Tree actually comes from my name: H. Baum. H sounds something like "Ash" in French and Baum means "Tree" in German. That’s it. My grandfather’s German but I don’t have any French in me, so far as I know. I like the idea of a tree that’s made of what it is when it burns away. Sounds pretty zen, or something darker, probably both. Something that is dying and growing at once.

and here i thought its origins were biblical. ash being short for joash, which is a derivative of joshua, which would make it the joshua tree which was also a u2 album...

my mind works in slightly fucked up ways sometimes.

can you walk me through how to determine who has been to the site? i need tech schooling.

also, what further info re: the SEC? ie screen name, location?

remember: just because you are paranoid does not mean they aren't out to get you...

peace.

xo, just kidding about the stalker comment. You rule. Very cool adventure you took me on today. I was wrong in the post--you actually managed to comment on them all. I’ve linked to your blog at the right. I’ll be taking a look, hope you keep posting. You’ve definitely got some good, strange energy. This was the best time I’ve had blogging yet.

Bongo-- The SEC hasn’t been here today. I can see who logs in using the nedstat button you can find at the bottom of the page. There are other services that do the same thing: sitemeter.com or extreme tracking, which is at extreme-dm.com. I’d recommend those over nedstat.

i feel so excluded from this discussion. merry christmas, everyone. i guess.

Henry Baum said...

Maggot, you're still loved here at Ash Tree. Us cool kids just needed to have a private conversation. Not really, I've never been a cool kid. Merry Christmas to you too.

baum,

thanks much. will set one of these up on my site.

The SEC? Are you giving out sketchy stock tips? Presumably tips on lumber companies. Ash Trees are probably especially flammable and those in national parks have probably been targeted for clear-cutting by Bush & Co. through the "Healthy Forests" initiative. Just watch your back, Henry. That's all I'm saying. Now, back to that holiday absinthe I was drinking.

brilliant comment.

a road will likely begin to be constructed next to the ash tree, for any tree adjacent to a road is viable legal lumber. Says junior, and rummy and all the other whores.
