July 24 – EAST COAST – payments, pickles and poles

NOTES: – We may have balanced the East Coast budget this morning. And by balanced, it’s not that we have enough money,   (not by a LONG SHOT), but that we’ve figured out how to make our known expenses match our known money. Oh, the corners we have cut. And the things we are going to have to figure out later. And the things that we are just not going to track. And our belief in the kindness of strangers. But, well, we think we can get the biscuits to work... Read The Rest →

July 19 – In SF, Mimosas grow on trees…

NOTES: – I have this idea that I call “creative density”. It’s the idea that if you have enough creative people in an environment, there will be a bunch of chance encounters that can actually mean that some interesting art can happen. I had one of those moments today. I’m a bit lost today. I thought I was going to be on the road. No plans. I puttered this morning, but as the house started to heat due to the mid-day sun, it was time to leave the house. I... Read The Rest →

July 17 – The way of the leaf down the stream, and redacted…

It’s amazing how quickly a day can change. This morning I was planning to drive across country. Tonight I am going to fly across country instead. I was going to pull a trailer, now it seems we are going to rent a truck. It was get out of town ASAP, now it’s wait until Tuesday. It makes me think: I am learning the way of the leaf down the stream. I keep on moving forward, driven by a POWERFUL force, but the exact route is a mystery. It is all... Read The Rest →

Waiting For The Man – May 18, 2013 – Anticipation, Secrets, and Seeing If You Can Be The Most Fascinating Person In NYC.

Twenty teams of artists competed to see who could be so interesting that they would be photographed in one of the 10 instant photos of our unwitting photographer/judge.

Meeting of the Minds Aug 21, 2013 – an impromptu event and infiltration for people who are interested but not yet involved

People always ask me to bring them along on events. But, I hesitate to bring along people I haven't worked with before. So, I did a project where everyone was someone I hadn't worked with. SO. MUCH. FUN.

The Mason Project – eating together, while eating apart – A social, distributed way to cook, share and eat for busy people.

A weekly get together where people share meals for the week. Each attendee brings 6 mason jars, all filled with a complete meal. Food is traded, and everyone goes home with a diverse batch of home cooked meals.

If you ever get asked to lead a marching band through the East Village, do it.

If you ever get asked to lead a marching band through the streets of New York to meet up with other bands at a marching band festival, I can say with first hand experience, you should do it: http://www.boweryboogie.com/2012/10/marching-with-honk-nyc-in-the-east-village-video/ I got an email that morning asking me to lead Minor Mishap from Austin through the East Village in a confluence of brass bands as part of Honk Fest. There is nothing like the feeling of being followed by a brass band through the city, playing your own soundtrack.
