I sit in front of Groundwork and sip the coffee that Anya served up for me in honor of tomorrow’s birthday. I prop the camera on top of the coffee cup and snap a series of photos of the workplace. After taking two or three decent ones, a guy walks past. Sees me hit the […]
Did you know that not once in the history of the United States has there been a cat for President? It’s true. I do a little prowling on the Internets to confirm this. Never one of our serving presidents has ever been a cat. Not even Warren Harding. I don’t know that it’s such a […]
I want to post on a subject that the latest issue of Utne Reader explores a bit this month, which is the question of how we, as human beings, live our lives day to day with the full realization that we will one day die. I want to write about how I’m both terrifed and […]
We are haunted by helicopters. I’m beginning to think that they inhabit my dreams. Last night I’m drifting off to sleep at 1:30 when a particularly low-flying bird swoops in to the Martel and Sunset and scrapes the earth with its searchlight. This goes on for about twenty minutes.

I’m a known procrastinator. So when one of my web hosting companies contacts me to tell me the hollywoodland.la domain is about to expire, I figure I’ll wait until the last minute to renew. However, I don’t count on their deactivating the forwarding function before its expiration. Those of you who visit me via that […]
More invaders are down. The one at Melrose and the 101 is gone. The one next to the Bouorgeois Pig is gone (another one of my favorites.) But we found a brand new one. This guy is close to home. And the best thing is it’s protected by security cameras.
This is something we at Amoeba never understand. And it happens all the time. This is a line of cars trying to get into the underground parking lot. That van will be sitting there, engine idling, for about fifteen to twenty minutes. One car out, one car in. That’s how it works. But just so […]
Sara: “Get your damn Merrill Osmond out of my imports section.” Eric: “It’s funny that they were looking for a spelling bee soundtrack and they didn’t think of spelling it out.” (after a customer asks why they can’t find the soundtrack for 25th Annual Putman County Spelling Bee at the beginning of the alphabet.) Dave: […]
Can you see your favorite blogger? Yes, indeed, I’m the one with the wristwatch. San Miguel dorm, 1989-90, 7th Floor. UCSB.
Special thanks to Caryn over at art.blogging.la, who posted about the Invader-theft yesterday, as well as the cool cats over at visualresistance.org (my new favorite blog) who totally “get” how depressing it is when someone rips off cool street art. Blogging.la posted a mini-blurb of the situation here, reacting to that Klaxon-call over at flickr. […]
