  • Look, I am generally a happy go lucky guy with regard to holidays. But it is time once again for me to be stubborn with my family about my one rule: No Christmas tree or lights until after Thanksgiving. It gets its own time. 🦃❤️

  • My sister and I at our Apple ][+, circa 1980.

  • Installed new porch lights yesterday. Oh, do I hate working above my head; frustrating, exhausting, and sore afterward.

  • The last Friday of (this cycle of) unemployment. New job starts next Wednesday. 😁

  • I should have read “Ballad for Sophie” much sooner, such a beautiful melding of story and art. Probably the best graphic work I’ve read this year (although published late last year). Do yourself a favor and read it.

    Elderly gentlemen in a robe is facing away for us. The smoke of the cigarette in his right hand swirling up and around, forming into piano keys.

  • “Indefatigable” is such a weird word. Looks like someone rolled dice to look up a table entry for each syllable.

  • I imagine these images will get crushed even more, but I had to make an attempt to capture the eerie lighting in the heavy fog early this morning.

  • Spent the week in Oregon with friends, playing games, relaxing, taking turns making dinners, and walking on the beach.

  • Been a long time since I watched something that made me think, “WTF did I just watch and why did I manage to watch the whole thing?”

    I present to you “The House”: www.netflix.com/browse

  • Raptor on the front porch this morning. Looks like a Cooper’s Hawk.

  • One Pissed-Off Ant

    Flashback to a late night discovery on late-’90s Seattle public access: Guy with an ant-head mask furiously pedalling a stationary bike. No speaking. Intercut with news footage, he’d periodically get off the bike and smash something, then return to the bike. End credits roll: “One Pissed-Off Ant”.

    Only saw it the once, really wish I could find footage of that to prove to myself it wasn’t a fever dream.
