Skeleton Hoodie

This afternoon, Bryan got a new hoodie in the mail. The best part? It’s a full hoodie, with the zipper going all the way up. I think there’s a bit of mesh where the eyesockets are. I dig the broken heart, and Mr. Van Damme just adds to the whole effect. Ok – you know when I said that the…

Dogeaters

Bryan has a new page up with samples of his work, from his latest show. I wasn’t able to attend, but lots of his stuff is still on display over at clothes optional (2918 N. Clark Street). And if you’re not in Chicago, take a peek online. Bryan does some great work!

Dave Featured in TimeOut Chicago

Wow – talk about a lot of media coverage lately! Dave, after recently been mentioned on Chicago Public Radio, has been featured in TimeOut Chicago. I’m delighted to see Dave get all this much-deserved attention. I hope this is just the tip of the iceberg, as I can’t wait for more people to dig into his music. Oh, and in…

Direct Link (Albeit Temporary)

Yesterday, I mentioned the mp3’s I came across: the Stanford lectures by Robert Sapolsky. In the event that the whole iTunes podcast process was too much for you to go through… I’ve got the two audio files zipped and on my server. Click here to get a .zip file w/ both lectures. I’ll likely take it down after a week…

Robert Sapolsky: The Physiology of Stress

On my drive home for the holidays, I was listening to an audio lecture to pass the time (a podcast that I got, via iTunes). I first heard aboutMacArthur Fellow Robert Sapolsky on BoingBoing, and made it a point to get the .mp3 files; after finally listening to them, I can’t recommend this enough. These talks are part of a…

I forgot to mention that Liz got a new laptop over the holidays. Today, she had a day off work… and we decided to give her video iChat a test drive. After a few trial runs, I got a video connection with her; shortly after that, I got Bryan and Allison to join in as well. Here’s a quick, silly…

Boooor-ing

This year’s 10 Most Dangerous Toys List is a big yawn-fest. Nothing exciting, nothing even that “dangerous” about any of them. There used to be a time when one could look to this list for fun gifts to purchase. And oh my, what fun it was!

Back Home

While on vacation, I didn’t take any photos. A nice bit of a break. Got to see my folks, as well as my sister, brother in law, his father, and my niece Jasmine. I also got to see my old college roommate Jim, his wife Sally, and their two lovely children – Benjamin and Stella. The entire time I was…

Portraits

Today, Laura (Rey’s daughter) came in to the office. She was playing around on Rey’s computer part of the time, and hanging out with us on the floor the other half. During her visit, Allison was keeping her pretty entertained. After doing some coloring on the group mural, they started to do portraits of one another. Allison, doing her sketch…

Liz’s Books

Liz has been doing book stuff the past two days, and been working up a storm. I got to see a few of her more recent creations, and wound up asking her to put out all the books she’s made so far, so I could photograph them. Here’s a glimpse at what she’s done so far. The accordion-style book in…
