What Will Fit In It, Though?

Tiny new pot came out of the kiln. Mini-hippo added for scale.

Pushy Animals

Jersey City raccoons have attitude.

Secret Agenda

Whales schmales. The real reason I went to La Paz was to buy pottery from Olivia, a potter whose work I admired and purchased from a coffee shop in San Jose del Cabo last year.

I tried making this kind of pottery myself but I couldn't--she glazes it at low temperatures (less durable but lovely). I don't have control over the kiln at the studio.

I Never Struggle With Talking

What will we talk about? I have no idea! Be there and help me figure it out.

Near La Paz

We saw many whale sharks today. The guide had a GoPro so maybe the underwater shots will be good, but I don’t think they’ll be better than from the boat.

My Comfort Zone

It’s 6 a.m. and I’m on a bus in Mexico. It’s kinda my thing.

Long Weekend

I’m in Baja Sur, in San Jose del Cabo at the moment, catching an early bus to La Paz tomorrow.

Gonna go see some whales this weekend.

When my friend Jeff Tartakov went to the Daniel Johnston exhibit at the Contemporary, he sent me a jpeg of a note on display. The note was from Daniel to me, indicating he wanted me to get him into a comic book.

I talked about an idea I had with several people. I'd tried to do it a few years ago and couldn't get any bites, but a couple of people at work were really into the idea of a retailer variant.

I met Daniel in February, 1986. I thought that story ended on 9/11/19, but today we see the continued story.

Gotta Store My Books

Now that we have a hybrid working world, I need to up my home office game.

Bought some cheap shelving, and today I’m working on bracing to hold heavy hardcovers.

Jay's got no beef with marsupials.

Feeding the Neighborhood

Petunia ate both bowls of cat food tonight! I guess she’s tired of the raccoons getting it all instead.

Night Shift

I kinda want to see this live so I can talk at the raccoons over the security camera. 

This is footage from a few hours ago.

Grumpy Exec

I have a LinkedIn account...I don't really do anything with it, but it exists. It's one of those things that hangs around because it doesn't involve any type of active attention.

Today I put it into "hibernation" mode since random people kept sending me their Batman stories. More trouble than it's worth...

NOTE: Don't send me your unsolicited Batman stories.
