I Work For Free…..Sometimes

The new school year has kicked into high gear and I am loving my new job as a media arts/creative writing teacher. It has however left me extremely busy and tired. I am getting behind on my editing, writing, reading, talking to friends, knowing what the hell is going on in the world. So basically, […]

You Are Not So Strange

Sheri and I went down to San Francisco this weekend to see Amanda Palmer and Neil Gaiman entertain us for a few hours on a stage. It was a gloriously strange combination of music and spoken word. The art of music commingling on a stage with the art of fiction. You can also throw in […]

Amanda Palmer So Close You Can Touch Her

I had a plan for today’s blog, really I did. When I finished up yesterday’s I was armed with several points I still wanted to make. I then spent the rest of the night reading blogs, articles, and talking to people. This caused an immediate implosion of the original blog in my head. I bled […]

Amanda Palmer’s Pile Of Pain

> Sometimes I want to write a blog and am not sure I have the skill to pull it off. This is one of those times. I am going to try because I can’t stop thinking about it and often the only way I can get my thoughts in order is to write them out. […]

Comfort Music

I know I have become a little fixated on the whole comfort art idea but I have one more I want to do, comfort music. More than anything else in my life I use music to inspire me, to make me better, to motivate me. Music is as big a part of my life as […]
