How to review a show – a manifesto ver 0.2*

NOTE: This is a manifesto-in-progress. It’s not righteous or applicable to everyone. It’s just something I’m working on for myself, to help me (as an artist) better process what I see others creating and to avoid what, to me, are nigh-inescapable eddies of snark, condescension, bitterness, and posturing that come from discussing art. Enjoy, steal, [...]

A metaphor for my morning

Waking up with the Simone

In his old age, Simone gets much more cuddly in the mornings. Here’s a POV shot of the demanding lump of hair.

Big news on the Time Traveler show

So, Joseph Fink and I finally set some dates for our two-man show “What the Time Traveler Will Have Told Our Alternate Selves.” It’ll be August 4 – 13. I don’t know if I can announce location yet, so I’ll just say New York. We’re both excited and still very proud of the script we’ve [...]

Oh hi there, spring!

First 70 degree day in NYC of 2011! I might cry.

And assuming that [...]

NOTE: This is a manifesto-in-progress. It’s not righteous or applicable to everyone. It’s just something I’m working on for myself, to help me (as an artist) better process what I see others creating and to avoid what, to me, are nigh-inescapable eddies of snark, condescension, bitterness, and posturing that come from discussing anything from downtown [...]

Our pet walrus is buzzed.

There’s really not much to say about this, except maybe “what an asshole!”

Dear canvassers, stop destroying my positivity toward other humans

Portland, Oregon—not unlike SoHo here in NYC—is home to much socially/environmentally conscious foot traffic. With said liberal-minded pedestrians come many positives of urban living: Whole Foods, farmers markets, arts and parks, and growing small business. But one of the negative side-effects is canvassers. Here’s a segment of conversation I had with a canvasser for Children [...]
