I regularly dream about old, abandoned buildings. There’s probably some standard dream-dictionary meaning for dreams about old, abandoned buildings, but I’m 100% sure that my dreams about them stem from my awake-life fascination with them. I love finding them, exploring them, examining them and dreaming of owning and restoring them. There’s no secret about that. […]

the most fantastic news

Friday, August 25th, 2006

I have just received word that the greatest radio station in all of radiodom, 90.3 KRNU has now resumed its full-time streaming. Do yourself a favor and listen to it all the time (especially Wednesdays at 10pm for “PROM” and Thursdays at 7pm for “You are So Beautiful, Beautiful Robot”).

Getting some feedback!

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2006

I’ve been doing editorial cartoons for The San Diego Reader since January 2002, but I have to say, it’s not often that I get any feedback. I don’t believe a single non-spam comment has ever been posted in the San Diego section at One time, I saw a San Diego blog mention my cartoons […]

Having spent a large portion of the last weekend driving interstates 80 and 94, I started thinking again about that fantastic new, yet not fully complete, six-lane stretch of interstate between Omaha and Lincoln. As everyone knew, traffic between Omaha and Lincoln had just gotten to be too much for those little four lanes to […]

Four years ago today…

..was Woodshaft. Woodshaft was conceived ten years ago back when I was in Residential Goosing, the band I was in during my senior year of high school. We wanted to have a big music festival out in the country. There were a few other bands from the Auburn area that were in various stages of […]

No Guns = No Money

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

I was in Platte City, Missouri last summer, and I remember laughing when I saw the door to the library. There was a sign posted saying that guns were not allowed in the library. I was like “What kind of primitive place is this, where they have to tell people not to bring guns into […]

I posted about it back in June the night after seeing it for the first time, but here, by way of YouTube, is the video for “Conventional Wisdom” by Built to Spill.
