occupy your life

yes, yes, i know, i haven’t written here since last may. of 2015. i’m a horrible blogger. (i blame facebook. which is why, as i write this, i am embarking on a facebook fast for a few weeks, to see if i can reclaim some of my lost time from the mother of all timesucks.) the […]

past and present lives…

it’s been a really interesting weekend, y’all. a few weeks ago i was asked if i was interested in being interviewed by a filmmaker, drew denny, and jd samson (of le tigre/men fame) who were working on a documentary about the loss of lesbian bars and the evolution of lesbian/queer spaces around the country. i […]

new tshirt design…

this has been a long time coming. i came up with the slogan “last night a brass band saved my life” years ago, when making some art for a jazz fest themed art show i used to participate in every year at a friend’s house. (she lives over in the area of the fairgrounds and […]

new year, hopefully more blogging.

oh it’s been over a year and a few months since i last wrote in this blog. i’m not really sure why i even keep it around, except that every great once in a while, i have a thought that i feel like expounding on and i’d like a place to do it. and, well, […]

tripping down memory lane…

on friday night, i went to zeitgeist to see the documentary united in anger: a history of act up by jim hubbard. the film is largely an archival repository of video of various meetings, actions and demonstrations from the original new york chapter, as well as scores of interviews with many former members – a large […]

rising tide 7 is this coming weekend!

(official rising tide history page here.) as those who lived through it will remember, in the days and weeks and months […]

sunday morning thoughts

some weekends, i really wish i hadn’t taken on a pet sit. it is a very rare occasion since i began this business that i get a weekend day – any day, really – that i can “sleep in,” whatever that means. when i can have that feeling of total relaxation, that i don’t have […]

quick scooter addendum/update

yes, i know it’s been a while since i wrote that “review” of my new scooter, back in mid-april. and here we are with june knocking on the door. since then i have put 1500+ miles on the new scoot! that’s what’ll happen when you use a vehicle for your mobile dog walking business AND […]

katrinaversary #6

as most of you know, i spent most of my k+6 anniversary weekend setting up for and helping to execute the rising tide conference at xavier on saturday. due to too much beer and not enough sleep, i can’t really tell you much about the content of the panels or the speakers. (i look forward […]

rising tide conference, part 3

this will likely be the last post i make about the rising tide conference that is quickly approaching next weekend, though perhaps i will do a post-event wrap-up. but there’s just a few more things i want to say on this subject. #1 – if you haven’t read my previous two posts, please do so. […]
