PT Gallery

This is just me, experimenting with the new Word Press gallery feature. It was a private post, so y’all didn’t have to see it, but it occurred to me that there’s just no such thing as too much PT Cruiser.

Gary Gygax, R.I.P.

Bill Buckley, Jr died the other day. My Dad, always a staunch Republican, took it rather hard. I only bring it up because a few days later Gary Gygax followed. He was my own, personal Bill Buckley. Always a staunch dreamer, I’m taking it rather hard. In 1979 a friend of the family dropped by […]

Space Invaders Swag

On the heels of the cutting board, comes the doormat. The invasion is still in full swing. I kinda wish I hadn’t taken down my old counterinvasion site.

‘Chicago 10’ and Activism Through Art

I generally don’t follow through on press release style emails, but I got one last night that happened to catch my eye, only because it sounds like the sort of event I’d love to attend. I can’t, because it’s happening tonight and I’m not in Los Angeles. And anyway, I’m supposed to fight a duel […]

If You Love Jesus…

This comes by way of McSweeney’s. It’s your list for the day. Things You Can Do If You Love Jesus Other Than Honk.

RIP Heath Ledger. Let’s eat.

So, Heath Ledger is dead. That just sucks. I mean I wasn’t a huge fan, or anything, but he’s a bit young. Sure it was drugs and there’s a part of me that pretty much wants to say, “Idiot,” and move on, but the drug thing can happen to anybody. It does, frequently. But I […]

2007: More of The Best

So we continue on.One by one we’ve covered my Ten (12) Favorite Tracks of the Year and we totally had fun doing it, right? Those were my very favorites. Those were the ones about which I most wanted to write. But there were others. In fact, at last count there were something like 130 songs […]

The Return Of The Blog

I’m in New Mexico. An opportunity came up. I’m gonna house-sit here in Santa Fe for eight months. That means I’ve got nothing but time. And what am I going to do with all this time? Well, write, of course. And detox a little. The Hollywood smog was getting under my skin. But also, it’s […]

Coachella Wrap Up

I return from the desert very early Monday morning. The next day I work. And then the day after that, I work. At last, Wednesday, I get to crash. And crash, I do. I completely shut down for the day, dehydrated, lethargic, cranky. It’s not until today that I’m able to sort through the last […]

Coachella Day 2

The temps get higher, the music gets louder. Today there’s more for me to check out, but most of what I really want to see is in the heat of the day. So I stock up on water and just deal with it. There are some more pics on the Flickr set. And I put […]
