    Every single thing here makes me feel alive and grateful.

    Music, dance, nature, reflection, laughter, and healthy grief…and it’s just 5:30 here in California.

    I can take whatever my 8th graders have for me today…

    Every once in a while McSweeney’s really comes through.

    National Geographic photos. So refreshing.

    That Decorative Gourd piece is the SHIT.

    It’s Decorative Gourd Season, Motherfuckers (IDGSM) NEVER gets old. I think I’ll get to work making a beautiful fucking gourd necklace for myself.

    I was at Petty’s Hwood Bowl show last Monday. It was a perfect night.

    Gutted to learn it would be his last. God damn.

    But grateful we had him – even the losers got lucky when he was around.

    Yeah we smoked cigarettes and we stared at the moon”

    Every click on a Nat Geo link puts money in Rupert Murdoch’s pocket.

      That grosses me out…

      thanks for mentioning it, good to know…

      I no doubt put money in the pockets of very disgusting people on an almost daily basis (i.e., every time I use my Chase card).

      Ditto Dana. I didn’t know that, glad you mentioned this profoundly depressing thing. Funny how you think one company is kinda iffy and then a new chief exec comes along and you almost have to recalibrate *everything.*
