Podcastin’!

Chatted on some podcasts recently, since I know you’re dying to hear my voice as much as I love hearing it. Most recently, my friend Robert has a great politics and current affairs show My Old Kentucky Podcast, which he invited me to talk about my terrible, no good, very bad experience attending President Tr*mp’s highly pointless stop in town …

Formed a My Bloody Valentine Cover Band for Valentine’s Day. It was loud.

I forget the when or where. I think I was talking with Zach about figuring out a Valentine’s-related event that wasn’t cliche or lame. That’s where the idea for My Crummy Valentine was birthed (with respect to Vectortone‘s man-on-the-street Clark for coming up with the name).

Interview with Never Nervous

Syd from Louisville’s preeminent arts and culture blog Never Nervous chatted with me about all the things right before the debut of My Crummy Valentine.

CPH

We visited Copenhagen in July of 2015 because the flights into continental Europe to this airport were insanely cheap and I love bicycling. So lots of photos of bikes, as it’s the biking Mecca. Food was really expensive, and there’s some serious sensory confusion with daylight pushing past 10 p.m. with a 55 degree air temperature. Beautiful city, great beer, …

Bicycling in Louisville in 2016

If you ever needed proof positive that those lists you see shared around Facebook are completely bunk, USA Today’s 10 Best Bike-Friendly Cities is a good one. They list Louisville – a city that’s gettin’ there in terms of bike-forward attitudes but sure as heck ain’t there yet – among name brand two-wheeled powerhouses like Portland and flat-as-a-pancake Minneapolis (not to mention …

Remembering Trish Keenan

A lot of talk about death this week of course, as we saw people who touched a lot a lot of other people in some meaningful way pass away suddenly. In terms of the passing of someone I didn’t know personally, losing Trish Keenan five years ago today unequivocally affected me the most. I couldn’t think straight that day. It …

Enjoy the …

Typography is Art

I was extremely honored to be invited by Block Party Boutique to participate in their group exhibition, Typography is Art, in September 2015. I submitted four pieces for display that people responded to rather kindly. More importantly, I exhausted the gallery’s arsenal of Franzia boxed wine during the opening reception. My artist statement, and some cool photos the curators shot, …
