Letter to Aaron Leeder of Faces Together

We go to bed every night in peace, knowing that, at any given moment, somewhere in the world, you are making a lot of people’s unicorns happy … …ahem. Keep up… Read more »

Exit Clov’s New Album Is Finally Done!

I still can’t believe it… but here’s proof –> http://exitclov.bandcamp.com/. It’s been a real journey through this album, but really what album isn’t a journey? Ask any band, I suppose.

The Vancouver Mountains

On some mornings, pretty placid pictures are just what you need to start the day off. It calms me down by reminding me how much bigger the world is than the little micro-world, micro-politics, micro-dynamics which one little person can get so easily caught up in.

Latest Make: Gray Floral Print Bag

So I’m almost finished with this little baggie that I started making before my sewing machine’s backstitch function broke several months ago. (It has since gone through the (Soviet) Sears repair process.) It’s a pretty simple bag – the same pattern that’s used at Bits of Thread in Adams Morgan. I made one before using… Read more »

HOW TO: Outfit a Band Merch Suitcase!

In preparation for our tour to Taiwan last month, Em and I were busy little bees! (reference: the scene in Gladiator, when Joaquin Phoenix accused his sister of plotting against him). teehee.
