Don’t eat the pan

October 28, 2011

Well, found some old books of mine and went through and salvaged what I thought worth salvaging. Funny enough, it’s mostly drawings and not much writing. Go figure. Not much of a writer and even less of an artist. The best thing is definitely the note my grandma left on what was probably a pan of brownies in the fridge. No idea when that’s from, at least five or six years ago. Most of this stuff is pretty old! And I was obviously buying a fair share of tattoo magazines there for a minute.


Dreaming in America

October 25, 2011

I’m always ambivalent about posting tattoos online, but at this point, I’ve already put up the first phase a few months ago, so I figured what the hell, I might as well post the finished product.

Also, like most tattooers who have a specific style, Mr. B. H. Robinson is often imitated and always imitated poorly. So if part of the worry is someone trying to make a bad copy (inevitable, no matter who you are), I’m pretty comfortable that the ripped off version wouldn’t even come close. Go ahead, put a bunch of gray in there, see what happens..

There’s a skull under there, too, but it was a tough shot to get with the shine on the shin due to the light. The few of you that check this thing, I know you are familiar with his work, but if you’re not, give Bailey’s blog a look here. Can’t wait to add to this guy. Thank you again, Bailey.

I don’t wanna be buried

Pet Sematary is on AMC at the moment.

I’ve been pretty terrible at updating this thing. Found a bunch of fun stuff from some old journals of mine, so I’ll probably ’em scanned at some point and you can make fun of my little drawings.

Gettin’ hitched in 3 weeks, suckers!

Hurly burly

Completely forgot about the new Mastodon album! Out today, I think. Hopefully get it before work!


Hahahaa also, why are Mastodon shirts always so good?

This album was so important to me (wow,) more than ten years ago and it kinda came outta nowhere that apparently it still is! Such a good show, more on it later. And stoked to check out the 2005 album that apparently kinda kills. For now..

Sioux City, Sarsparilla?

September 12, 2011

My stupid bearded face can now be found at High Horse Saloon on Havemeyer and Hope, most days ’til 10. If you ask me for a cocktail list or fresh squeezed lemonade, I’ll throw you right out the front door.

Photo by Sarah Law! Who was in shooting for a project I don’t know the website of. (Of which I don’t know the website, whatever.) But it’s a great project where they record on an old acetate recorder and make records and film it.

I am taking this time ’til the wedding to work at the bar, make some cash, drink some beers and listen to what the what is trying to tell me. Come hang out, I promise I won’t talk about the universe.
