Live on Etsy

December 2, 2010

After mumbling for years about my intentions to build a shop on Etsy, I’ve finally started really using the Etsy virtual storefront. And I’m loving it. As you might know, I have a lot of “Cool Stuff”. I have too much cool stuff, and a strong internal magnet for attracting even more. Just last week [...]

Just say, “Yes” to Seattle Erotic Art Festival

April 24, 2010

During my Mondo Beyondo work last month, one day the lesson was about saying, Yes. Part of the premise was about not seeing ourselves the same old way, and thereby releasing self-imposed restrictions on the possibilities for our lives. Luckily, that was the same day that I was approached to create a wall ornamentation at [...]

Exit Through the Gift Shop

April 23, 2010

Following on yesterday’s post about the street art under the First Avenue Bridge, tonight I watched the Seattle premiere of Exit Through the Gift Shop. I admit that I have a more friendly attitude toward street art than many folks do. Probably this film will be condemned because it honors “vandalism.” I think the movie [...]

Randy James, photographer (and human) extraordinaire

September 10, 2008

I’m telling you, this man has an eye and a touch. See what he can do with humble carrots? He can work such magic on your portrait, too. Or, you could purchase one of the magnificent works he has already captured.

what now #6

July 25, 2008

Mask and Clown class with Arne Zaslove continues. Session number 4 will be next Monday. I am enjoying the adjunct benefits: getting more in touch with my body and my imagination. I find myself surrounded by friends who are clowns, (retired clowns), and mimes. I guess I lost track of this information. Kerry Robby Pellett [...]

I know you have been waiting breathlessly for pix from the big ReFirement party. Hope to have some Flicker links soon. In the meantime, this is what the transition looked like:

Todd Rundgren, July 9, 2008 – The Triple Door, Seattle, WA

July 9, 2008

Okay. Perhaps I’ve been a little too hard on the FANS, lumping all FANS together, when really only some of them are aptly labeled “stagnant”. I mean, some people really just are passionate about music and musicians. With all due respect I ought to acknowledge that. So. We had amazing seats at the show tonight. [...]

Todd Rundgren – July 8, 2008, Aladdin Theater, Portland, OR

July 9, 2008

My husband has been demoted from the category of FAN. See, I didn’t really know what a FAN was until encountering the crowd at the Todd Rundgren show last night. I’m just a little out of the loop on this aging rock star, aging FAN thing. For example, in the audience last night there was [...]

men and music (and math)

July 6, 2008

I have always been attracted to geeks and dorks (defining “dork” as a geek with artistic tendencies). With only a few exceptions, the men I have loved have been musicians or scientists (or both). Dominique, who invented a new approach to division and taught himself how to play drums. Dr. John, ER doc with guitars [...]
