…hire Ice Cream!

He’s a poet, a cartoonist, and a singer. All in one!

Ice Cream!

Unfortunately, he doesn’t look like ice cream… he looks better than ice cream!

Seriously!

He’s only free after 7PM,

Oh, hi, Mark... and Julius.

 Friends for over a decade now,

Four Loars (of five)!

…for visiting us last weekend all the way from Columbus, Ohio!

It’s official! We owe Columbus a trip.

Seriously loving this revolving door of guests,

Nandita! Eighteen years later!

…when we both moved into the freshman dorm at the Columbus College of Art & Design (CCAD) in Columbus, Ohio. We haven’t seen each other since she graduated in May 1998.

Last night, Nandita and her husband Raj came over for dinner.

It was great seeing her again after all this time, and I promise to not let another 18 years pass before we see each other again.

Reconnecting with old friends dulls the pain,

Cbus on a garbage can? Come on!

One can even features a music venue I’ve been to more than any other venue in the country: Newport Music Hall.

Newport Music Hall!

Amazingly, these garbage cans are making me feel nostalgic. Think I’ll have to visit Cbus again soon… which means these garbage cans are doing their job.

Columbus is no trash-can city,

"Goody Boy" by Amanda Hope Cook.

…of the Michael’s Goody Boy Diner sign in Columbus, Ohio.

From May 1999 to July 2003, I lived just a few blocks away from Goody Boy. I saw that sign nearly every day for over four years. It’s pure nostalgia for me. And one hell of a painting.

Learn more about Amanda and her work (and then buy some) here.

Yep, that’s a painting,

So pretty.

Me either.

Not at all how I remembered it.

You ignore what you see everyday,

Old Poop!
