Nerd Alert




After I had finished taking pictures, I thought of another one I should have done --- a Nintendo game! I could have been blowing the dust out of it. If only I had another week.

Playing a show with Jeffrey Lewis... I'm going to play it cool and not tell him I'm a big fan


I had nothing to do with this flyer, and the band I'm playing with is not even listed.. but... see that Oct. 2 date? On that night at Backspace I will be playing guitar in the opening band, which is (Jeffrey Lewis's brother) Jack Lewis's band. This is pretty exciting!

My drawing turned into a video


I entered this into the Portland Mercury's amateur porn contest. If you watch it at work, you might want to wear headphones.

The Oppressor Project


I am taking a class called "Body Politics." For the first project, I am keeping a Twitter log of all the times I oppress minorities or reinforce stereotypes over the next two weeks. Early indications show I am not very good at oppressing people. I hope they don't take away my patriarchy card. Follow the project under the Twitter name "oppressor."

Construction


They are cutting out a part of the curb to open up a new entrance into my neighborhood. It will be good for traffic and way more convenient, but I'll be sad to no longer live in the most difficult neighborhood to figure out how to drive into ever.

Beatles: Bigger than He-Man


I'm pretty sure the Beatles song was called "Across the Universe."

Transferring my self-portrait drawing to a piece of wood so I can make a woodcut


I'm wary of working with a medium where you have to get everything right the first time.

Reading for class


It's always the same: at the beginning of a new semester, I get all gung-ho and say this time I'm going to keep up with all the readings. So I go out to a coffee shop and camp out with my printed-out pdfs. And then after 20 minutes I'm only on page 2 because I've been reading sentences over and over. Then I skim the rest of it so I have something to say in class. By the end of the semester this skimming happens right before class, if at all. I'm just not a good reader of heady, philosophical things.
Why do brilliant writers jump from topic to topic, and not explain their references? I could never be a brilliant writer because I value accessibility too much.

Time Based Arts Festival


Some girl recognized me from my Time Travel pictures that were up at Scrap over the summer. I should get out more often.

School daze


My new shelf in the print studio. I'm glad school is back in. I was getting pretty bored with summer.
