lookatthisdog, originally uploaded by sugarfreak. From our friend, Geoff Brown, who is looking for leads on a story he's doing about this flyer that I took a photo of, lo, these many years (ok, it's been 2 years. But in internet time that's like decades.). Hook a reporter up!

"If the words 'dog' and 'awesome' and 'expensive' and 'Xerxes' apply to a certain thing you made back in 2007, I'd like the chance to interview you for a local public radio piece. Will need to prove/convince me of authorship. Any leads appreciated. Respond to: Geoff Brown at Thanks."

Post Halloween Slideshow

I had a complete costume fail last night...but everyone else was stunning.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Windup Space last night and here's a slideshow from last night (including everyone else I saw at other parties and on the street). There were so many more amazing costumes that I just didn't get a photo of or the photo didn't work out.
