making some plans. reading a little. making some coffee.

Sunday, February 22, 2009


over the past two days i have coincidentally entered into two conversations with friends discussing the importance of focusing on the moment you are in, allowing the past to be dead and the future to be unwritten.

longest fingernail grown to 25.5 inches over 13 years. measured feb. 15th, 1979 (just missed the 30th anniversary).
as i spent a lot of time during my childhood perusing the book of world's records, this picture is very familiar to me.


so valentine's day was fun. here we are.
yesterday, i went to an abbey at mt. angel, oregon. it has a museum on the grounds
i doubt you'll ever see these three in church together again.
there is a monk playing the organ up there. joel couldn't help but pray. he is confirmed afterall.
i bought a copy of the 1981 guiness book of world's records at the abbey's library.

i once read in a book that much like burning sage to clear a space of negative energy, one can carry and egg around a room to absorb the bad vibrations. you must then take the egg outside and bury it.

so we cleaned out a lot of stuff from the basement to make more room. a house with a lot of different people moving in and out over three years accumulates a lot of shit. like two extra tv's?

here's an old watercolor i mailed to a friend.

and i picked up this album, blood is clean, by valet at the library.
i hope tomorrow is as sunny as today.

upon scanning this page from a crispin glover book i was able to more clearly see the people on the right page. i like it even more now.



an early happy valentine's day! such a bull shit holiday for a lot of reasons like the need to buy gifts. i made something for my particular valentine in that box up there. unfortunately for some it does seem we need a nationally recognized holiday to signify a day to be as loving to one another as we should be everyday. tomorrow: a heart on every coffee drink.
someone loves you dearly. it is true.

exquisite corpse drawings done by clea and me on the plane ride home from maui.

slow start today. stayed up late on this new toy of mine. tonight i reconvene with my friend dan with who i played some smoothed out blue-eyed soul under the name gianculi


a tax return means a new computer which means an opportunity for regular postings on here.
i went to maui and got back last week. here are some highlights.

i still have art up at nationale in portland. check out may's lovely store. luckily i dodged the upcoming layoffs at the company where i work. i saw many good bands this weekend: dragging an ox through water, valet, castanets, eternal tapestry, date palms, some weird sin, tara jane o'neil. what a goldmine of shows with all but date palms being local bands. portland is a magic place.
