• Song lyrics – “Scully”

    Now that The X-Files was revived for a special season, I realized my punk-ish just-for-fun song “Scully” might need to be slightly updated. I also realized it has a bunch of funny lines, but will probably never manifest into an actual finished song, at least under my non-musically-talented oversight. So I figured I’d just post it, so […]

  • Gary Johnson for President graphics

    I need to get back into the flow here, so I’m going to stop overthinking things and just start posting some stuff I’ve made. Here’s a couple graphics I made to promote Gary Johnson’s presidential campaign. Feel free to use or distribute them at will without attribution!

  • New Poems (?!)

    I don’t write poems at the velocity I used to…or maybe I should say I don’t finish poems at the rate I used to, or talk about them as much as I used to. But I do spit one out here or there that seems worth sharing. Five in the last three years or so, […]

  • Are octopi the most amazing animals? (We may have to wait ’til they tell us.)

    Prepare to have your mind blown re: octopi and other cephalopods. (Unless you’re already in the know.) Exhibit A is this article in Orion Magazine, which I read some time ago, and which knocked my brain on its ass with its central premise that octopi seem to think and experience things in a way that’s […]

One thing I learned about: “thin” vs “thick” libertarianism. I’m apparently a “thick libertarian”—meaning I try to apply the principles of […]

  • Feeding a carrot to Golondrina

    It took me almost two weeks of trying in order to get a good “selfie” of me feeding a carrot to this neighborhood horse directly from my mouth. This is why I need a girlfriend.

  • Lake LA Porch Puppy and Mom Fundraiser

    As I mentioned recently, last week I helped rescue a mom dog and her 5 pups, who were living under the porch of an abandoned building in my town. Now we’re holding a fundraiser to get them all looked at by a vet, and get shots and microchips and spayed and neutered and the other stuff […]

  • Lake LA porch puppy rescue (VIDEO)

    I’ve been putting water and food out for the mom of these puppies since I discovered they were living under the porch of an abandoned building near downtown Lake Los Angeles. The situation is starting to heat up, and I’m connecting with rescue groups to get hopefully the mom and her puppies fostered and then put […]
