Take Pictures of Your Food

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

After many helpless hours dragging and trimming and wishing I had any idea what I’m doing, I am happy and just a sliver short of proud to present to you the second of what is certain to be three or maybe four skateboarding videos made by me. I’ve titled it, “Take Pictures of Your Food,” and I hope you enjoy.

Wisconsin is a Place

A few Sunday’s back I listened to Jodeci’s “All My Life” with Nicholas Peterson and we both sang along. It was sublime. And then the weekend following, four of us packed into a car and drove into Wisconsin, a land of at least milk and bratwurst but I can’t speak for honey. Please note that my yellow hat reads, “Rap Hurts,” and that I inherited it from a rapper from Minnesota who has no idea that I inherited it.

A Video Asterisk

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Well, I have done it. I’ve completed my first ever iMovie with footage from my Panasonic Lumix handheld camera thing, a sleek black camera I bought for the sole fact that the Crailtap guys told me to, meaning I fell prey to celebrity endorsement, the simplest and most transparent of all advertising ploys. Who cares.

Here’s the video enjoy it please!

Re: Dude Life, the always reliable Pretty Blog provides explanation here, but Ryan’s quote bears repeating:

The focus of Dude Life is just dudes who are into stuff, whatever that stuff may be. Primarily, it is skateboarding, babes, tacos, hot dogs, rock and roll, jobs without bosses, beers, road trips, art, and buddies.

Exactly, Ryan. That’s exactly right.

New Work: Podcast and Video

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

I mean sorry! Sorry! Been working, busy writing and teaching and traveling and being as complete and whole a person I can manage. Leaves holes in the blog though, don’t it?

Here’s something: a recording from last week’s reading (mine) at the Parlor Reading Series, there in the Busch and pretzeled home of Green Lantern Press. Many thanks to all who came and heard me read for thirty minutes from my novel in progress, especially the skateboarders who don’t normally frequent readings. It was a rad night, totally and completely satisfying. The podcast itself can be found right stinking here.

And for those of you with eyes, here’s a video of the flashback section of the reading (that’s a Busch burp there at 0:33, if you’re curious).
