Miss Freecycle, who took about 50 moving boxes off my hands back in July, stopped by with a demo for her boyfriend’s band. I passed it along to my friend Fred, who is the intrepid host of the show Demolisten on KXLU. I don’t know if he’ll play the demo on his show, or even […]

This is the maiden document of my new computer. I hadn’t replaced my laptop until now for financial reasons and moral reasons. The financial reasons are obvious–I’ve been broke for forever.

The old neighbor, and original owner of Yellowtail, hung himself in the backyard with a garden hose […]

I had a disturbing phone call with one of my girlfriends today. Her stalker is back. My friend is in heavy nesting phase, prepping for her upcoming surgery. She’s been home more than usual but was out all day last Tuesday. When she returned to her home, she got the creeping sensation that someone (and […]

So Help Me

I wouldn’t call myself a particularly self-aware person. I admit: I am deeply shallow. One of the reasons why I decided to do this experiment in niceness for one calendar year is to see if I can do a better job of being a human being. So lately, I’ve been reading a lot of self-help […]
