Quarantine Scenes II

Recently enjoyed things: virtual watch movie clubs, faint meteors, distance drinking into the night, ebiking, seeing a baby possum (!!!), and reading for hours (a rediscovered joy). I also had the surreal experience of watching a video of Lydian as it was streamed out of the living room above me. Actually, really cool! Coronatimes seem […]

Springtime Quarantine Scenes

March 16-April 14 On Monday, March 16, Amber and Kris brought two delicious birthday cakes into work for me. Shortly after, we all packed up to begin working remotely. At the time we were told one week but this has been a slow response emergency where the bad news is micro-dosed. Those first two weeks […]

Flamingo Ranch

My dreams of living in Jayne Mansfield’s Pink Palace have come true, junior sized! It’s not a trap house and it’s definitely not Mellencamp. A couple notes of gratitude: 1.

I only stayed in three days the entire month of October and still missed about a half dozen movie screenings, the costumed dog parade, and who-knows-what-else. Here are a few of the highlights: […]

Prince Party

Last night, Erin and I went to Kate’s Prince-themed birthday party at Flicker Bar. I honestly can’t think of a better way to celebrate life– your own, Prince’s, or just generally– than dancing with Purple Rain projected on loop and a steady stream of glittery cocktails. This might be the only Prince party in history […]

Inauguration Weekend

♥︎Resist: Thank you Desert Island, Françoise Mouly, the artists, and the cool people/places that distrubted this. Jessica was able to get a copy at Avid Bookshop before they were all snapped up and reading it brightened a bleak day. Mooost of the comics are by women; all are choice. ♥︎Athens Day of Resistance: Good vibes, […]
