Half a year later…

Sat, 03 Jan 2015 05:02:03 +0000

…and it’s a new year. This blog has been coasting on those mochi cake fumes since July. In the interim, much has changed. I left my job at Chronicle Books in September to join a small design firm. Dessa, our younger French bulldog, had two ruptured disc and required spinal surgery (not to worry—she’s walking […]

Let them eat mochi cake

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 02:30:27 +0000

Goodness knows, I’m not a sweet-tooth kind of guy. On the rare occasion that I do bake on the other side of the spectrum, it’s a sure bet that it’s for a pretty darn special reason. Today was one such reason. The ever-fabulous Guinevere de la Mare is leaving Chronicle Books. You may know her […]

Conchita Wurst

Sun, 11 May 2014 15:09:40 +0000

Congratulations to Conchita Wurst from Austria, winner of Eurovision 2014. She’s a reminder to be happy, knit more and don’t let not having a beard hold you back.

Josey Builds a Bakery

Tue, 18 Mar 2014 22:32:34 +0000

If you follow me elsewhere, you’ll know I’ve been baking bread. A lot of bread. But not as much as this guy, but a boy can dream, can’t he? Enjoy this mini-doc about superfly-rye-guy Josey Baker and the opening of The Mill. Josey Builds a Bakery! from Najeeb Tarazi. 2013 / 14 min / HD […]

Happy, by Maggie Estep

Fri, 14 Feb 2014 02:48:10 +0000

Like Laurie Anderson’s Home of the Brave did for me during the 80s (as seen on HBO), Maggie’s work also opened my eyes onto a world beyond my suburban, son-of-a-preacher-man home that I knew I wanted to join one day. Urban, independent, absurd, progressive, radical (if standing up for yourself was radical). I wanted to […]

“Glacier” by John Grant

Wed, 15 Jan 2014 22:57:32 +0000

My favorite song, from my favorite album of 2013 (which happens to have been recorded in my favorite place, Iceland), by one of my favorite artists, John Grant. I, too, wish I had heard a song like this as I grew up. A glimpse of history and a testament to how far things have progressed. […]

Seth Godin, Backwards

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 18:46:53 +0000

From May’s New York Creative Mornings talk: (if you have twenty minutes to spare for inspiration.) Bits that resonate with me: You don’t get tomorrow over again, you don’t get next week over again—one shot. Make change in a way that creates more difference. “I’m no longer sure what the question is, but I do […]
