This Week Was Pretty Productive

September 23, 2011


Jah went to Milwaukee to visit relatives without us, so we tried to keep busy. We bought our tickets to the Philippines, got old computers fixed, cleaned out closets, got massages, watched a movie (Moneyball) in a real theater and went to the Prospector for karaoke. I sang “Suedehead” by Morrissey and it’s been in […]

Fireworks everywhere

July 19, 2009


This year, I’ve seen fireworks displays in three countries, three states, five cities. That’s an unusual number of times, especially since it’s only mid-July. (Holy shit, it’s mid-July! Whatever happened to this year– or this decade, for that matter?) I’ve witnessed New Year’s Eve fireworks in Baguio (Philippines), BenCab’s celebratory fireworks to mark the opening […]

Here’s a short story I wrote for Variety; I actually talked to Kula Yoga Project owner Schuyler Grant (one of the organizers), and I was amazed at how simple she made putting up a festival seem. For some reason, I […]
