News: Akuuuuuuu.....!

The Asian-American actor Mako (Mako Iwamatsu) just died, at 72. I don't usually mention such things on my blog, as I like to use this for more creative work, but I'll confess, I was bummed that the CNN article didn't mention his role as the voice of Aku on the animated series Samurai Jack.

Ah well, at least they mentioned his role in the Conan movies.

My Photos on the Web

Used with a Creative Commons License:
- in an Open Political Protest Letter. (Machine translated from Spanish)
- in a weird blog entry that uses my fireworks photo (oddly) to represent a dangerous party mishap with an acetylene-filled balloon.
- as a humorous photo entry in a blog.
- in an admiring blog post about my Body Language photo.

Used in ways that are probably "fair use" under copyright law:
- in one of those blogs that aggregates links to pictures of pretty women.
- in a blog's list of interesting links for 6/6/6.
- in a blog's photo of the day for May 5th, 2006.
- in a blog's discussion of a hail storm that struck our area (links at the bottom).
- in a photo blog cherry picking photos that were in flickr's top 500 interestingness for a day.
- in a photo blog cherry picking photos self-identified by their posters as being some of their better or more interesting work.
- My photo of Rose's last days at preschool was featured on a website about South African Montessori schools. It looks like they rotate through images, so it probably won't be there forever.

Used with permission
-On the Isthmus paper's website, as one of their Madison Snaps.
-A portion of a photo of plaster buddhas is now being used on the Media e Società web page. (Here's a babelfish translation from the Italian.)
-A photo of Polly and Ivy is being used by the Kansas University Special Education department website.

Used without permission in ways that don't technically constitute fair use, but which I've no real objection to:
- in a blog post about Arizona's cyber education initiative.
- in a blog post about the madison chapter of the Belegarth foam fighting organization.

Finally, the photo of my daughter Rose eating sushi was apparently used on this Japanese blog page, but I can't find where. Perhaps it's been taken down.
