No Rest For The Wicked Awesome

It’s been nearly a week since my last post (what sort of penance must I make for this transgression?) and in that time life has rolled along in its usual exhausting ultimate roller coaster ride mode. Random highlights and distractions:

  • Many of my most favorite people have already turned or will be turning 30 this year. One of them happens to turn 30 today. Happy Birthday Tom!
  • Finally got my hands on Runaways Volume 3 (which is where this post title came from).
  • I want the Destroyer Bot by Tubes. Hey, my birthday is coming up…
  • Soon I Will Be Invincible is at the top of my reading list. According to wikipedia: The novel is a spoof and hommage[sic] to comic books, featuring a mad genius supervillain, Doctor Impossible, who suffers from “malignant cognition disorder.”
  • Took care of a bunch of the boring stuff like bills, appointment making, and renting yet another dumpster. Which arrived yesterday and is already nearly full.
  • The soundtrack of my life is often the soundtrack of the little man’s too, since we spend so much damned time in the car. It makes me happy when he enjoys what I play. Lately he’s given me the thumbs up for Andrew Bird, Love of Diagrams, Man Man, and The Plastic Constellations. Particularly the song Let’s War, because it’s about slaying a dragon.
  • It totally looks like Robert Smith painted my toenails.
  • Anton, who’d been out of town while I was in Chicago, gave me a ring the other day and broke the news…I had been staying very near the all-vegan Bleeding Heart Bakery but had no idea. I’ll definitely have to head back down soon to try it out.
  • Courtesy of jeansays: the actual no one belongs here more than you site that everyone should click at
  • Underground Artists Take on the Sith in The Vader Project - pop surrealist, graffiti, tattoo, lowbrow, comic and underground artists Shag, Tim Biskup, Frank Kozik, Marc Ecko, Amanda Visell, J. Otto Seibold, Gary Baseman, Joe Ledbetter, Urban Medium and Jeff Soto, among others, show their allegiance to the dark side by customizing Darth Vader helmets. Very cool stuff. More on flickr.
  • The exterior of my house is now 3/4 painted and looking good. The other night I was tag-surfing on flickr, looking at other Dutch Colonials, and came across the porch project in NYC. Wouldn’t mind kicking back on many of those porches this summer, with a glass of lemonade.
Hoodies really does make pretty things
