    I gave my mother the Criterion Collection edition of A Hard Day’s Night for her birthday. It needed suitable giftwrapping.

    My friend Pat asked me to make a logo to go on a Big Rico’s Pizza t-shirt for his Night Vale cosplay. This is what I came up with.

No one does a slice like Big Rico.
No one.

    I have a tendency to pick up and then abandon a sketchbook in favor of another, going back again later and filling them irregularly over the course of a few years. I like having old notes and sketches side by side with newer and blank pages where I can be reminded of old thoughts I may have never completed and have space to reflect on them.

    Tonight I discovered this particular sketchbook contains a recent (ridiculous) sketch I did (in pink Sharpie, the finest of instruments) of that silly photograph of Morrissey with a cat on his head, a dozen pages after a tiny Biro doodle a former beau did of that same silly photograph of Morrissey with a cat on his head a couple of years ago when the photograph in question originally surfaced.

    It probably symbolizes something, like maybe I’m at peace with the universe or maybe I’m listening to too much 80s music to be living in this decade or maybe it’s time for Morrissey to wear another cat on his head. It’s probably time for Morrissey to wear another cat on his head. Somebody let him know I’m waiting?

    #morrissey cat-watch 

    …Wherever they might be they always remember that the past was a lie, that memory has no return, that every spring gone by could never be recovered, and that the wildest and most tenacious love was an ephemeral truth in the end.


    I think perhaps I’m so intrigued by the ephemerality of objects and memories because of the dual nature of that ephemerality - the sadness of loss and the terrible excitement of the fleeting moment that together make the thing so bittersweet. I remind myself constantly that everything is temporary. In this I find both relief and motivation.

    A man is dead; but also, he lived.

    Step 2 Dance in the beer was going to winter’s first snowfall, except it’s the bad turnaround. See it, and surly shepherds; cavorting in misty lochside meadows; longing gazes from it

    Found poetry from the Facebook Status Generator.

    I illustrated the covers for this series of three minizines we recently put together for the Queen’s Head, featuring prose and poetry from the fantastic Stephen O’Toole, Elaine Gallagher, and R. A. Davis. A triptych, if you will. Polished up with editing, design, printing and assembly by the inimitable Ryan Vance.

Everything happened today. I also had my first cup of coffee in over a month. Tom brewed it. It was the most delicious. It was like a revelation. He brewed the El Salvador Finca La Divina Providerxia, using the clever method. Everything about it was perfect. I am good for another month or so now.

I thought Sophie was just taking a picture of her coffee so I was absent-mindedly humming and looking out the window and wound up looking like the cover of a Belle and Sebastian album. Alas.

    A cloud of trouble. Every instance of the word ‘trouble’ in the lyrics of Belle and Sebastian, illustrated for a piece by one R.A. Davis on the very subject for issue five of The Queen’s Head. Info on the issue launch event coming very very very soon…
