telephone poles

There’s this thing that happens to telephone poles hanging out on busy street corners: first they get covered in flyers for bands and lost dogs and yard sales and advertisements for low cost flyer printing, then the flyers are quickly stripped away in a shocking and revealing act that causes casual passers-by to blush and ...

buildings for voting

I did some advance voting last week and it was awesome. Four years ago I waited in a line for four hours to get into this stuffy little room with about ten voting stations inside a Baptist Church. The separation of church and state has never been more clearly ignored. While there was something of ...

starlight six

I grew up less than a mile from a drive-in movie theater — the 42 Drive-In to be specific which later doubled its number and turned into an 84 Lumber. Apparently, there are no photos anywhere within the vast spaces of the internet of that particular theater or I would share them with you here. ...

vacation iii

I’m not saying any of this actually happened. Accounts from casual passers-by and first responders offer conflicting information, but everyone agrees that once events were set in motion, things spiraled out of control much faster than the scientists had predicted. The official written record stinks of Wite-out brand correction fluid. The names have been smudged ...

If there are two things I know about Astoria, the first is that the hit 1985 movie The Goonies was shot there and the second is that…well…if there’s one thing I know about Astoria… “Good one Brian.” “Thanks Brian. And let me add that you’re looking extremely handsome today. I hardly even noticed your receding ...

Like all good vacations, this one begins with a dead hummingbird. I’m assuming it flew into the glass door at my uncle’s house in Portland, Oregon and that was the end but I didn’t see or hear the crash, though such a small bird probably wouldn’t have made much of a noise upon impact. I ...

lest you think i am dead

I am not dead. I am on vacation. My deviation from the mostly typical weekly blog offerings [blofferings] of late should not be misunderstood as a severing of my internet tendencies, if I can borrow that phrase from McSweeneys for a brief moment (and they said I could in the imaginary conversation I just had ...

boring buildings i

We spend our lives indoors. This is understandable. It is hot outside or if it is not hot outside it is too cold or it is raining or it might rain or the humidity makes us sweat and sweat leads to heat rash which is ugly, and that reminds us that we too are ugly. ...

godlight

While working on some renderings on Friday, I wanted to give them a little extra attention to take them out of the realm of hard lined computer generated images and into something softer and more ethereal. Solution? Add godlight. Everything looks better with a little extra godlight thrown into the mix: that rotting window in ...

dispatches from the once prominent nook between wall and refrigerator

Greetings homeowner and welcome to your new domain. As the once important space that occupies the tiny zone between the refrigerator and the wall separating living room from dining room, I think it is important to maintain open and cordial lines of communication before you make any rash sledge hammer based decisions. It has come ...

odds and ends…mostly odds

The air has become thick in the south. It’s all sweat and humidity these days with the occasional thunderstorm from out of nowhere that soaks unsuspecting bicyclists. But I still find myself walking or riding around the neighborhood, often with no particular direction in mind, though if my path happens to cross the DQ or ...

we’re on a porch to nowhere

Something is wrong. I feel nervous. I am sweating. It’s hot in Atlanta and I am walking a couple dogs so it’s possible that my sweat is caused by the elevated temperature, but more likely it is caused by this: Question everything you know and once held sacred about porches! Shouldn’t there be a front ...

collaborative drawings redux

As is evident in the post from 04-02-2012, drawings thickened with plastic bags, taxidermy eyes, silicon glue, and foil do not scan well. In an effort to more accurately represent the drawings, here are a couple of photographs to replace their poorly scanned brothers. In other news, another collaborative drawing has been stopped by John. ...
