I’m going to be doing another Mortified performance in Berkeley. Come watch me mortify myself on stage as I read journal entries I wrote when I was 12 and tried to change my reputation — military style — in order to win over my crush.

Finally found a pretty-&-clean design template that can accommodate posts, projects, pages and pics (not to mention easy commenting just for you ,Gigi). With the new install I uncovered ghost pages I forgot even existed, including a “projects” page, which reminded me of the original purpose of this whole blog fiasco: to do “exercises in […]

That, and my ebbing/flowing anxiety about writing something somewhat entertaining/interesting/readable prevents me from posting until I have an “angle” (thank you CCSF Journalism 10A class). Aborting that, I will simply write something mediocre/simple/true.

It is with extreme sadness and spiked loss that I mention the passing of my friend and mentor, David Bromige.  I wanted to be able to write a great spread of prose or poetry, honoring his sharp wit, playful creativity, and a life in words. But for now, I will just provide this link and […]
