My hair has always been very fine; fine little strands, but enough of them to give me a healthy head of hair. Nothing extravagant, but enough. This past year, though, has been hard on my hair. Hormonal issues, quite a bit of extra stress, and a few rounds of poisoning myself in the studio have … Continue reading Incredibly helpful
One day until stuffing, One day until pie, But again with the turkey? Blogosphere, I can’t lie. I’m tired of Tom, Nothing personal, dude, But I’m sick of your gobble, Your wattle, your snood. Is it time to consider Another holiday option? A brand new tradition, for culinary adoption? Something new, yet familiar, Might appeal … Continue reading Slightly Illegal
Afraid of retaliation after kneeing his older brother in the groin several times, Riley now has both his soccer shinguards stuck down the front of his jeans. It’s not particularly comfortable to walk around this way, but it makes a great sound when you energetically play drums on your crotch. “Hey Mom, wanna play drums … Continue reading Wanna play drums on my nuts?
Let’s do this differently. Today I won’t tell you about Tara Donovan; who she is, what she’s reaching for in her work, what she means within the art world. Today I will just show you, and I’d love to hear what you think. I won’t tell you anything. Not one thing, no matter how hard … Continue reading Some badass sculpture: Tara Donovan
Blogosphere, I might be a genius. After almost a year of using Big Cartel to host my online shop, I’ve realized I can offer discount codes. Mensa, how are you functioning without me? You must be struggling so. And so, if you enter the code CHRISNUKAH at checkout, you will receive 20% off your purchase … Continue reading Chrisnukah!
“Dude, you have a whole… look going here…” Karen and I both look admiringly at the careless style Jake has intentionally pulled together. Jake grins broadly and nods his head slowly. “Unshaven, shaggy hair, ripped jeans falling off your hips, cross-country t-shirt. Kind of an urban look with the sweatshirt under the khaki cargo jacket. It’s kind … Continue reading What’s the word for it?
As Riley packed his backpack this morning, he announced that he needed another spiral notebook for science class. “Another one?” I ask. This is the third notebook this year. “Yeah, the other one fell apart.” “What do you do to them, Ri?” “The covers just keep falling off!” “That’s because you’re not treating them right,” … Continue reading Notebook Casanova
I head upstairs to stop the latest altercation between Ri and Matt. Through the years, my boys have shown me that they can debate, bicker and all-out fight over the most ridiculous things. They fight about what went on in each other’s schools on any given day, even though they all go to different schools. They … Continue reading Seriously?
We picked this one because it left us wondering….is the object on the right a knife? A sleeve? Are the tentacles innards of some kind? Are they bleeding, or have they caused something else to bleed on them? Where’s the rest? What’s the rest? It’s this monster’s mysterious nature which kept us coming back, kept … Continue reading Suzi is the Monsterbling Princess
This was a tough one. Of note: * We think “Arlo sings until his tonsils wiggle” should be submitted as a t-shirt design at http://www.Threadless.com. Promise you’ll do that? * Eyeclops (the orange, one-eyed, toothy monster) was disqualified because it was that Karen’s. It had to make it through first rounds because it was goooood, … Continue reading Second Glass Finalists
