this is a t-shirt i designed for do-it-ourselves fest in lincoln. i was wearing it in lawrence, ks recently and a crustpunk/hippie bro asked if i would trade him shirts, so i gave him my “the system is broken” shirt in exchange for his red tank top. it seemed like it would be bullshit of me, to wear a shirt that says “the system is broken”, and not be willing to give it to someone who asked for it nicely.

one of my least favorite journalistic tropes is the “one could easily imagine” where the writer has no way to insert an idea into a story based on the actual material they’ve actually collected, so they invent a hypothetical being and muse re: what said being might be thinking. FUCK. OFF.

DIO 2017

DIOFEST, short for do-it-ourselves fest, is a semi-annual free music and learning festival.

the system is broken

this is a t-shirt i designed for do-it-ourselves fest in lincoln. i was wearing it in lawrence, ks recently and a crustpunk/hippie bro asked if i would trade him shirts, so i gave him my “the system is broken” shirt in exchange for his red tank top. it seemed like it would be bullshit of me, to wear a shirt that says “the system is broken”, and not be willing to give it to someone who asked for it nicely.

trying to create trying to end the war

i'm working with amanda on a 2nd edition of her chapbook "trying to end the war.". she did a hand-made version in 2016 & it knocked my socks off.

favorite image

this is the insta post of mine i think about the most.  it's an advertisement for some product designed to reduce wire clutter. but  that hand and that phrase really speak to exactly how i feel navigating modernity.

weird sandwich

i made this sandwich after i, having woke up before everyone, cleaned up a friend’s house the morning after a party whilst listening to ep 6 of new models podcast

SP CE "cult"???

writer's group notes

a big part of my life is this weekly writing group i've been helping to facilitate since 07. most things i've written i've shared with a handful of people. i try to write down everything anyone says then review it later. it's fun.

kc #2

it's funny to me how both of these pictures feature me with my mouth agape. to my left is re chang, who is a really awesome writer/artist.

cutty spot interview

matthew sherling asked me a bunch of questions via facebook chat and i recorded a video response for his tumblr page "cutty spot". he's done a lot of great interviews. check em out here

eileen's

i was a dough maker at a cookie shop for awhile in 2016. i really loved making dough. i quit cuz the owner decided to weirdly browbeat me via throwing one of my aprons in the trash. 

aliens ticket!

in june 2017 i was in a play by the aliens. it was written by this amazing playwright named annie baker. it was at this cool arts space in lincoln called The Mez (which is now closed, RIP).

aliens act 2 scene 2

a lot of my lines in the aliens were stuff like, "yeah and it's like, well. i'm not sure how to put it. but. imagine you're standing on a roof looking down. .... and like ... well ... uh ... it's like i don't know. i don't know what i'm saying." this scene was the one where i had the most lines like that.

aliens act 2 scene 3

this scene required me to have an emotional breakdown.

inherent vice

i like this movie. the way this relationship is rendered is beautiful to me. a strange melancholy, an uneasy love.

jake gillespie drawings

one of the greatest events in SP CE was an art show by jake gillespie + drone music by the band bus gas.

great lil b song

i was trying to say something on twitter about lil b’s creative project being this deconstructionist endeavor where he occupies a range of niche soundscapes and does weird shit within them then moves onto a different thing and how it’s such a deeply felt art appreciation thing whereas when most people cite their influences it’s just kinda bullshit or w/e

mediocre ass shitty sexist writing vol 2342879230475902345

one of my least favorite journalistic tropes is the “one could easily imagine” where the writer has no way to insert an idea into a story based on the actual material they’ve actually collected, so they invent a hypothetical being and muse re: what said being might be thinking. FUCK. OFF.

midwest small press fest

SP CE tabled at Midwest Small Press Fest in Kansas City in 2014. we had a smorgasbord of letterpress materials. 

scar

i got this scar when i was really drunk and it was one of the worst nights of my life. i have since quit drinking alcohol and that was the best choice i ever made.

this chair was in my yard for years. i took a lot of pictures of it. i was fascinated by the different ways that nature enacted itself upon this chair.

having to-do lists is really helpful to me. this is kind of a shitty to-do list, though. don't emulate this to-do list.

@corrupt_nba

i enjoy this conspiratorial twitter feed.

old poem

my grandma wrote this poem.

mission statement

i helped draft this mission statement. i have mixed feelings on mission statements. i don't know what impact drafting this mission statement had. i love the mission statement, the words of it, but part of me thinks it was just a thing we decided we had to do. 

work in progress drawing

i enjoy using shards of my own stuff as collage materials. 

idk the title of this painting

i like this painting.

hypernormalisation

this is a picture i took of my tv while the adam curtis movie hypernormalisation was playing. i'm a big fan of adam curtis. the power of nightmares and the century of the self were both very important to me. the lyrics "how fucking shitty i feel" are from this dope russian punk song.

laundromat

i enjoy laundromats. i think they are very soothing places to spend time.

filter limit selfie

i took a selfie and did the vivid cool filter to it over and over until it stopped changing

eating with tony

i told tony we should hit up this vietnamese place by wesleyan. we get to the parking lot and he’s like, “where is it?” i point to a sign that says house of hunan chinese food. i’m like, “it’s called house of hunan chinese food but they serve vietnamese.” tony’s laughs. “awesome.” we eat. talk about life and shit. love it when tony is in town. miss being able to kick it with him more.
