jiggle me this

hilltop living

the kindness of strangers

 think inside the box
 harold and maude reconstructionism
 sometimes i drink so much coffee light shoots my ear holes
 let us now appreciate modern light
these days i'm mostly making sad office light sculpture

video sketchbook

there's all these wall-sized dry erase boards around here and i've been making little video idea notes for possible later development but probably this is all they will ever be. i am usually more into the potential of something than an actual polished finished project as you may have noticed if you look at anything i've ever done on this thing.

second hand blues

we checked out a lot of thrift stores on the drive west. i looked at a lot of records but didn't find anything i wanted. i did get some good design research logged, though. here is some evidence.
 "to angie, peace (?) with no bullshit, kenny rakin(?)" 
this was on a kenny rankin album. did kenny give this to angie himself and was so anti-bullshit that he misspelled his own name? an imposter? we may never know.
 steve has a gift for you. please accept it.
 kidding aside, i love this. russ and judy forever.
don't invite kenneth to any parties. he is such a narc.
