Mike Leach

Perhaps there was no greater harbinger of impending doom prior to this latest Apple Cup than watching Mike Leach eat a banana prior to kick off. It fell apart, mid transit to mouth with pieces of it dodging off his face and falling to the turf. It reminded me a bit too much of ‘The … Continue reading

…turkey…

It’s that magic time of year when turkeys suddenly fill the meat case at the grocery store and you’re expected to procure one and cook it for people in a way that says you know what you’re doing…  Of course, there are all sorts of ways to cook them, and I’m sure you’ve tried at … Continue reading

…stuffing…

…the simple beauty of grapes and sunshine…

I’ve resumed my habit, again, of wandering around the neighborhood, walking around for spells at a time.  It’s an important mission, always, of hunting fruits and taking in sights without any sort of time or purpose associated with it. In fact, it is the most important endeavor of all. Being completely untethered to a clock, … Continue reading

…rejection…

   I had a strange sort of revelation today and it pretty much started out of nowhere.  Most good things in life come about that way, I’m certain, which is why I’m a huge advocate of wandering around aimlessly for as many hours in a day as possible.  Seriously  – I beg you to tell … Continue reading

…the thin white duke…

A drawing I did over beer this afternoon and thinking of the chameleon life David Bowie managed to live. It was a beautiful, strange and unique one, probably the most genuine I know of. We should all live such beautifully strange iterations, I think. We shouldn’t stop to explain ourselves or our motivations. We should … Continue reading

…Heisenberg, Gödel, Derrida…

Actually it was none of the above who set me on this course. They all appeared later, or to be completely honest in case of Jacques Derrida, earlier. When his impact hit me it meant nothing and stills does little to change my day to day routine. I understand and appreciate him better maybe, though. … Continue reading

…chicken skin…

 I’m fixated a little bit on philosophy tonight – for no particular reason other than my mind wanders there from time to time.   I’d like to say I know exactly where this all started, though that would never be completely accurate.   All of these thoughts have been lurking around in a sort … Continue reading

…caricatures and umami…

 Years ago, I was caught up with playing around on the computer with a photoshop program where I began finger painting.  One of the things I found myself defaulting to was drawing caricatures of people like Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, family members… I have, in recalling some of these things, discovered that most of … Continue reading

…die schönheit an der wand…

 …ja das ist ein haufenmist…. It is easy on days such as this to see it all that way – a giant shit pile.  That’s pretty much been my entire life that I can grasp so far.  It’s been a day of true cleaning, sorting out layers upon layers of shit that has accumulated … Continue reading
