memorial day malaise

A Young Man in Curlers at Home on West 20th St. NYC –Diane Arbus, 1966 Actually, I spent most of today being creative. If I wasn’t writing, I was learning about databases for yet another website I’m working on. Sara was supposed to call me about trying to get over to LACMA again for the […]

catch-up

Okay, so yeah, I’ve been gone for a while. I know. Sorry. I’ve been busy with a lot of things, not the least of which has been the holiday. Quickly running through the past seven days, we have, well…interview at Amoeba Music on Wednesday (went very well, I think); a journey to LACMA for the […]

lost wednesday

Nothing like too much booze to remind you why you’re not drinking it anymore. It’s late, but I wanted to get something down before crashing. And I’m going to crash hard tonight. Last night was a complete blur. The final episode of Angel aired. I caught it at my friend’s house. I thought it was […]
