Google Maps Street View: The Movie
A little thing I put together in Flash, from a bunch of stills I screengrabbed using Google Maps' Street View feature. Orwellian Invasion of Privacy charges aside, I find the technology fascinating, and spent some time this weekend virtually revisiting some my old NYC haunts, in addition to...
The Marones!
I haven't seen anyone post anything on The Ramones lately, so I figgered I'd haul this antiquity outta the basement of my harddrive.Poster I did about 12 years ago for my ol buddy Zombie's band, when they took the legendary Ramones out on tour with em as their opening act. Curiouser and...
Gymnopedies
Here's a little Flash sumpin I've been fiddling around with, off and on, the last month or so.Inspired in part by a coupla Busby Berkeley movies I got into during some downtime after Xmas, and some addled, late-night notions I'd been having about minimalism and symmetry.The title is after Erik...
Misfortune Cookies
I had a brutal week- everything that could have gone badly, did- personally, professionally, and any other way you'd care to view it. Every idea got rejected, every final came back for revisions, my girl walked out, and it just seemed that I'd become some bizarre magnet for black-cloud...
My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts Turns 25
Not much to say about this record, except that it was   a.) a groundbreaking collaboration between David Byrne and Brian Eno, and   b.) WAY ahead of it's time, and as far as electronic music goes, it pretty much influenced everything that followed it, either directly or...
Delusions Of Grandeur
The last coupla months, when I pass a blank wall or a billboard, I've started to to wonder what I would do, if somebody gave me that space to use. I started carrying a camera around in my backpack, and every so often I'll pull over and take a couple of shots if I'm out running errands, or whatever....
From the Pages Of The Pasadena Bee
I'd like to have an interesting explanation for my six-month absence from this wonderful site. Something involving an offshore oil rig, or a diplomatic mission on behalf of the Department Of Interior, or even fighting for our collective right to party.The truth is, I just didn't have that much to...
Bigmouth Strikes Again
I evidently got canned from a weekly job I'd been doing for a well-paying, but notoriously difficult-to-please client for the past six months or so. So lofty are their standards, in fact, that they provided the impetus for my Gallery Of Rejected Sketches, after passing on eight reasonably viable...
On Rejected Sketches
I never know why clients pick certain ideas over others. Sometimes they pass up some decent ones, though. I always like to imagine that someday I'll arrive at the point where I can just dash off some e-mail that says, "Gentlemen: here is the sketch I'll be doing", and then I can fly to...
Tremble In Fear Before My Mighty Blogging Skills
Are you trembling yet? No? Well, that's because I haven't related my story of the grave insult I received at the hands of a callous Barista, yesterday. Or discussed, at length, the pros and cons of facial hair. Or bared my innermost thoughts on the subject of quality footwear. I've studied...
