June 2007

This is essentially the first post about a 30-day experiment I called “the Great Hypnotherapy Project, which I collaborated on in July and August of 2007 with Los Angeles-based hypnotherapist Greg Beckett. You can read more about this experiment, what motivated it and what we hoped to accomplish here; you can read all of the […]

Anatomy of a meme

This comes to me via my pal, Jeremy Cherfas. I admit to being completely befuddled when I first looked over the questions. Then bummed. And then, I figured out what to do with it… 1. What’s in your pocket? Left rear: a rectangle of vivid orange velvet, trimmed for me from a larger rectangle of […]

TinyURL is great for making big-ass emails shorter, no question. I’ve used it regularly for a couple of years now, and it’s reliable and great. But while it takes care of overly long URLs, it doesn’t do it very gracefully. Those of us who don’t understand the numerous hideous things that can happen upon clicking […]

I have not yet got the hang of this Illustration Friday thing. Apparently, you IMMEDIATELY draw the topic when it’s announced on Friday, then upload as soon as possible so that everyone sees your thumbnail first.

While I’m no expert in the ways of things blogular, I’ve been doing it long enough, and obsessively enough, let’s face it, to have learned a few things along the way. The same goes for acting (which I was relieved to let go of almost a year ago), writing, design, presenting, cooking and, just because […]

I’ve been caught up, or catching up, with work lately, and today was no exception. So by the time I got to my Country House, the Youngster had already been here for awhile. He and The BF’s kidniks had been hanging out, playing frisbee down at the park, lolling around and such. They do a […]

For years, the only things I took orally, and let me pause here ever-so briefly, that some of you may retrieve your mind from that trench below the curbing, were food and drink. I was young! Healthy! Carefree! I thought the corrals of pill bottles blooming on my elders’ nightstands were needless, if one lived […]

For years, I lived my life like the plate spinners. You know, those guys you’d see from time to time on Bozo’s Circus who, for their grand finale, kept what seemed like dozens of plates spinning atop dozens of poles via timely reapplication of force (and the apparently gyroscopic effect of the sabre dance). It […]
