172: DIAGRAM __ erasure special issue________21 November, 2016

well hello post-apocalyptic dystopian wasteland futuremadmaxamericuhhhhh! “they kilt us but they ain’t whupped us” etc? more faulkner? sometimes one is not enough. in fact, i would go so far as to say that in our great country, one is rarely enough. the more the better. i try not to get political on here, but in the words of that guy’s post-election sign in new york: “i’m not usually a sign guy, but jeez.” for now let’s all go back to our huts and call our congressman a few times.

there is some good news. i have two stories up in the latest extra-special edition of DIAGRAM, entitled “erasure”. DIAGRAM has long been one of my favorite lit mags. there aren’t enough publications that support experimental literature in this world. ninth letter, DIAGRAM, fence … i’m probably leaving out a few idols, but you know what i mean. and i must admit that DIAGRAM was on my radar before even the mighty conjunctions. so read the rest of the mag if you have time — pure gold through and through.

164: seattle | palouse | coulee | rainier: there & back again________10 June, 2015

hello sir, madam, or thing,

the summary of the summary of the summary is: people are a problem. okay, now i’ve gotten all my HHGTTG GATTACA ABBA BRB LOL ASDFs out, i can focus on the new and exciting things. you know what’s exciting but not at all new?

YES. the puget sound.

this and much more on future episodes of … this blog! there will be pictures of sheep. there will be pictures of mountains. there will be pictures of “cool but gritty neighborhoods” that are “played out.” there may or may not be pictures of angora rabbits. oh, and you should go check out okey panky on 6/15. because that’s when my new minicomic will be up! it’s called “MEAT.” obviously you should go there before then because they have lots of other cool people writing things like hey sharma shields or stephen dixon or yumi sakugawa, but i just thought i’d mention that.

also i am going to grad school for fiction … and getting paid to do it. these are words that i never thought would be coming out of my word-hole, but there they are! i will really really miss all the great people and things and buildings at and surrounding ARO. i’ve been hugely lucky to spend almost four years working at one of the best firms in new york city. and i don’t think this is the end for me & architecture; more like a coda — just for whatever that’s worth.

other current projects: some prose stories, possible return to certain comics endeavors, editing all mah trip photos, attempting to reenter currency in my correspondences. hope y’all are doing well!

 

162: tumblr, chicken coops, comics________13 February, 2015

i wanted to call this post the GIF that keeps on GIFing, but i’m waiting to upload mah GIF and also trying to keep to more informational post titles lately. what is new? things!

  • i have a tumblr now. go check it out! it’s mostly street photography, something that i anticipate getting back into more after this bitter freaking winter has run its course. it is hard to shoot when the blood in your fingers is frozen solid. you will then be like ACK
  • i was in the NEW YERK TAHMS (a little). mainly aro was in the new york times! for its splendid chicken coop in the hamptons! here we are doing LGBT synagogues, beautiful stadiums, schools, and park facilities and da newz is all like, “hey, i heard you did a chicken coop. tell me about how lucky & spoilt those hens will be in dem cushy hamptons?” and then all the commenters become completely rage-tastic, ejaculating vitriol such as, “hey, that’s not how we gave chickens life supporting shelter and care growing up in the upper west side — i mean maine!”
  • i’m working on a new comic! it’s called MEAT. it was specifically intended for the newly-minted okey panky (zine?), but they abruptly (and prematurely) closed their submissions, so now it will have to find another home (probably). anyway, see title pg + page one embedded below. check back soon for more! till then, be well.
