We also got to meet the main man of the evening, Michael Giacchino:

But by far the coolest person I got to hang out with that night was my kid sister Bethany:

I’m occasionally sentimental… but don’t get used to it,


Last July I posted this. Remember that? Yeah.

Well, I’m still doing “Sketchbook” posts here on “The Blarg” (see the most recent “Sketchbook” entry here), but unfortunately I had a piece of shit Dell laptop that died and, when it did, it took my email list of interested and contributing artists with it.

So if you’re a regular contributor to “Sketchbook,” or if you’re just interested in being placed on the assignment list, please email me here and let me know.

As of right now there’s only one person on the list: me. That’s gonna be a pretty sad next entry if I don’t get more people signed up.

Hit me back and spread the word,

ATM for pussies,


Fans of “Breaking Bad” should know it,



Sounds like a bad joke,


…the 1927 edition of the book Great Poems of the English Language.

Handwritten inside the book was this:

gives off truly a holy light
like honey bleeding from coal.

Under this blue folding darkness
