astral projections at 11:08 pm tonight (EST)

David Horvitz’s proposal for EGOESDAYGLO reminded me of an event during my last year of college: I was home alone, scrubbing our kitchen floor on my hands and knees. When I went to wash out the bucket in the utility sink in the corner studio that overlooked the entry to the apartment, I saw Colleen come up the stairs. She looked up, waved and said “hello” then went into her room. I assumed she was going to pack, as she would be moving back in with her parents soon. Later that evening when I was having dinner with my other roommates they asked if colleen had come by that day. I told them, “yeah, but she wasn’t here for very long and left without saying goodbye.” When we spoke to Colleen later that night, she said she was at her parents house all day. We joked that she must have astral projected herself when she was taking a nap, or that I was hallucinating from the cleaning product fumes. Either way – it was creepy.

David, good luck with your poetic efforts.

A friend of mine found this link for me, it’s a collection of photos from a RISD grad from 1976. 32 years ago, and the City has definitely changed a lot in that time. It’s pretty great. Now, of course, I will have to recreate some of these locations and do a Before and After. Like I don’t have enough to do…

I put some photos over at flickr of a recent project we did at PMA – its the offices for a marketing agency called Pitch in Culver City.

The military used to good at developing new technology that later found its way into civilian life. The first SUV, , night vision goggles, NASA and its freeze dried ice cream and velcro, etc… What would life be like today if they followed through on Jack Frost’s Flying Jeep design?

Michele and I have been posting drawings over at the Drawing Club International lately, along with many other fine folks all over the place (it is international). Its a fun way to keep drawing every week. Feel free to check in on it once in a while, as there are some nice random sketches being posted there.

Chairscape from Jeremy Quinn on Vimeo.

Reflected light from passing cars playing havoc with the shadow of an office chair. With a little soundtrack of my own devising, and you can sort of make out a meeting in progess.

Inspired by the fabulous 60 second videos at Ironic Sans.

a good day for love and social justice

Yesterday was our one year wedding anniversary. At one point Jeremy and I talked about waiting until same sex marriage was legal, even though we are a heterosexual couple, but decided to marry in celebration of our decade together. I am proud to say we now share our June 17th Anniversary with many of the first gays and lesbians to marry in the state of CA. Next year we will be sure to celebrate in West Hollywood.

1st same sex marriage in LA county!

Impeach?

“Resolved,” Kucinich then began, “that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. ..

Dennis Kucinich started presenting articles of impeachment against Bush last night. Interesting to see if this goes anywhere, or is squashed. He has already tried once against Bush and once with Cheney, so we shall see.
