Filling In The Blanks

Completely spaced out on the deadline to drop off submissions for the MIA’s Foot in the Door 4 exhibit. The deadline is today. I plan to rummage through the big box of my photo prints and see if I have anything that might be worthy but time is running out and I am still in my PJs. But DON’T PANIC. I’m not. It’s fine, really. Oh gawd, there are forms to fill out. I loathe filling out forms. Deep breaths.

Five good things for this fine Sunday:

  • Over the weekend I’ve become completely enamored of Axe Cop. It’s my new favorite comic written by a 5-year-old and drawn by his 29-year-old brother. I’ve consumed all of the episodes, listened to a few interviews with the brothers, spread the good word about Axe Cop far and wide, and am considering getting Parker and I some of the merch.
  • Vanity Fair article on the women who helped make Disney animation magic: Coloring the Kingdom
  • Pink Tentacle has goodies galore, as usual. Star Wars disco sea chicken! And Monster illustrations from ‘Yokai Jiten’
  • What Katie Wore: A lot of the color and pattern combinations are so garish they make my eyes bleed but still, it’s quite fun.
  • The Wolfman opens this Friday, the 12th. I look forward to seeing it on the big screen. Until then I am giggling at Kate Beaton’s take on it. And attempting to spur myself into action, forging ahead with my werewolf cop novel rather than getting sucked further into Julie Kenner’s demon-hunting soccer mom series. But it’s tough.

The weather has been wonderfully mild. Conditions were pretty much perfect for sledding with a friend yesterday. Afterward, though, the sun came out and my son practically hissed while saying “nooooooooo, it burns!” then went on to insist that he is a creature of the night. One that falls asleep by 9pm, but whatever. We have more outdoors-y plans for late afternoon today but am put off by these murmurings of another impending snowmageddon. It’s too tempting to just stay in and work on perfecting new (to me) bread recipes while listening to new (to me) music.

The boy didn't approve of this as a dessert option


  1. had a friend go to drop off theirs yesterday at foot in the door and it was a two hour line! Plan accordingly!

    Sadly I’ve been hearing other such tales so I don’t think it’s going to be in the cards for me. Guess I’ll have to wait another ten years!

    Ugh. I am so sick of hipsters & their intentionally hideous outfits! Stop inflicting your “quirky” bad taste & color-blindness on the rest of us!

    Axe Cop! That reminds me that I once had plans to write down Wesley’s stories and illustrate them, but for some reason I never did! He’s always writing stories now, I should do something fun with them.

    That Vanity Fair article, Coloring the Kingdom, was so interesting. Thank you for the link!

    Wes loved the Star Wars disco sea chicken commercial, laughing throughout and then proclaiming, “What?!” at the end and deciding that it was “totally nutso”.
