Classical Fencing

Martinez Academy of Arms I study fencing at the Martinez Academy of Arms, one of the few schools that teaches classical (as opposed to modern) fencing.

Palm Beach Classical Fencing These days I teach classical fencing classes in West Palm Beach, FL.

I'm gathering a list of classical fencing and historical swordsmanship resources, and I administrate the Classical Fencing Mailing List, a listserv dedicated to discussing classical fencing and historical swordsmanship.

Association for Historical Fencing (AHF) I'm also a member of the Assocation for Historical Fencing.

 

Other Sports and Activities

When I was in high school I used to kick butt at Chinese handball. Although I haven't played in a while, I'm still up for a game any time. I also enjoy kayaking, volleyball, Frisbee, biking, running, playing pool (including bumper pool), Ping-Pong, and Scrabble.

I've worked on the following projects recently:

Stuff I've Collected

Names

The Funny Name Server Around 1990 I collected some interesting names from an electronic telephone directory. Recently I used them to create the Funny Name Server.

More recently I collected these least common female first names from a census study.

And speaking of names, here are America's Funniest Aliases, taken from law enforcement agencies worldwide.

Miscellaneous

In the early 1980s, phone s*x companies in New York City used to hand out folded fliers that looked deceptively like a $10 or $20 bill, but which upon unfolding turned out to be nothing more than an ad for their services.

It seems every victim of a grizzly death in Jack T. Chick religious tracts yells the same thing just as their life is ending: "YAAAHH!"

German-English phrasesI found these, uh, interesting phrases in a 1950's German-English phrase book.

Recently I helped my father transcribe my grandparents' memoirs of their lives in Germany before, during and after World Wars I and II. More recently I helped him transcribe letters my that uncle (his brother) wrote while serving in the German army during World War II. And most recently, at his request I made available the details of a court case he was involved in as a young man in East Germany. Also, here's an article about my grandfather titled Kurt Erich Moser (1895-1982): A Life "Between Worlds".

Here are some interesting quotes from video game ads I found in a copy of Next Generation magazine.

My collection of A.P. Herbert's "Misleading Cases" (originally published in Punch) are no longer available. (Apparently they're not in the public domain.)

Here are a bunch of fliers, catalogs and manuals from 1980s computer systems.

I've scanned some of the notes, handouts, assignments and other papers I wrote and/or acquired during my formative hacking years from the late 1970s (middle school) through the late 1980s (college).

In 1982 I got a Commodore 64 and a 300 baud modem and began calling BBSes in NYC. I saved a few messages and other philes from the BBSes I called regularly.

In 1976 I wrote a letter to the U.S. Army asking for more information on their ranks and uniforms. They responded by sending me a copy of Your Army 200 Years, a booklet published in 1975 on the 200th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Army.

Here are all 7,887 black and white photos I took between 1971 and 1986.

Over the years I've taken many more photos.

I also made about 60 photograms from the 1970s through the early 1980s.

I've posted some clips from my collection of Super-8 animated movies that I made back in the 1970s and 1980s.
