checkmate in three moves in your heyday, but…

So as an accompaniment to this entry I was going to post a youtube of the song Human Hands by Elvis Costello, only to discover that youtube only contains a zillion videos of Sondre Lerche’s cover version of the Elvis Costello song. I’m sure it’s great and all, but it’s typically depressing that a new […]

white shoes / black shoes

There was a shoe sale at Nordstrom’s last Friday so I bought some much needed new shoes. Anybody who knows me, knows that I almost exclusively wear white shoes. I just prefer them. There’s just something about a person who walks into a room wearing white shoes. If you don’t believe me just watch Chevy […]

One Hart Too Many

So part of my daily wandering routine includes going to Borders and reading biographies of famous actors from the 50’s and 60’s. One of the best of these is Tony Curtis’ American Prince, which I’ve written about here before in various contexts. These books are also kind of depressing, as they represent a long gone […]

tennis balls and mirror mazes

How’s the weather, whether or not we’re together, Touch me but don’t let me down. Maybe I’m just hanging around, with my head up, upside down.. it’s a pity, I can’t seem to find someone who’s as… pretty and lovely as you There needs to be a manual for how to deal with emotionally healthy […]

“I wouldn’t be caught dead marrying a woman old enough to be my wife”- Tony Curtis

The game was created to demonstrate the futility of individual effort.

My internet has been down at my house, so I’ve been having to update this thing from Kinko’s lately…which has been sort of disgusting. There’s always some riff raffy dude sitting on the computer next to me wolfing down trail mix or talking on his cellphone. When one such mf leaves he is replaced by […]

rectangles and clouds

It was a beautiful overcast for much of the day, complete with a juicy humidity. These days are few and far between in the land of Phoenicia and thus are much appreciated. I spent much of the afternoon painting a 30×40 canvas while watching “Caprice” on dvd. I can’t decide if I’m happy with it […]

The other summer, in Arizona I was sentenced to the chair…

Last night I had dinner at LGO with girl. We split an avocado pizza and discussed taxidermy. We went for a long walk through a few of the condos and townhomes in the area(three fountains, olive square, williamsburg square.) Then we drove around for a while through a slightly seedier part of town and as […]
