old year

Okay, so 2007 was not my best year. In fact, it would go in my bottom three (along with 1995 and my all time worst year, 1991). However, I'm going to focus on the positives. Here's my "good stuff" list:

The Darjeeling Limited
No Country for Old Men
Paris, je t'aime
Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

Sky Blue Sky (WILCO)
Easy Tiger (Ryan Adams and the Cardinals)
A Year in the Wilderness (John Doe)

Either Way (WILCO)
These Girls (RA and the Cs)
This Is It (RA and the Cs)
Don't You Wish It Was True (John Fogerty)
Golden State (John Doe)
City of Immigrants (Steve Earle)

::live shows::
WILCO - Pines Theater, Northampton, MA
Ryan Adams and the Cardinals - Hammerstein Ballroom, NYC
all the many Crevulators shows
Old 97's - Circle Line, NYC

::other miscellaneous good stuff::
my time as the artist in residence at an elementary school, teaching resist painting

my trip to North Carolina for the art*o*mat 10th anniversary party
Thanksgiving Day parade (click it to see our view)
Lex got to go to his dream college

So, see ya 2007 and bring it on 2008. I'm ready.

season's greetings

As some of you know, our family makes a movie every year as our Christmas card. This year we're a little late due to circumstances beyond our control...our schedules and the editor's (David) obsession with perfection. Finally, after three days of time lapse photography and stop motion animation and two days of post production, here it is for your viewing pleasure...

It's my little dog's 10th birthday, so the block print for the day is a doggie.

I spent most of the day trying to remove the 4" thick sheet of ice that's covering my driveway. I was not successful. So tonight I made a bunny. There's no connection, don't look for one.

open for business

I've been threatening to open an Etsy shop for ages and now I've finally done it. All that's there right now is jewelry (17, count 'em, 17 shrink film chokers), but eventually I intend to put all kinds of arty stuff on there.

Please surf over and visit me...

peace out
