Intro “2H2K: LawyeR” is a multimedia project exploring the fate of legal work in a future of artificial labor and ubiquitous interactive machine learning. This project arose out of 2H2K, my ongoing collaboration with John Powers where we’re trying to use science fiction, urbanism, futurism, cinema, and vis

Hey! Somebody wrote to ask me for ADVICE! I really enjoyed this one. I lived vicariously through that dude for a second. 26 and just starting out on this adventure of life! What a glorious time! I’ve been doing a lot of card reading. I love my cards so much. It is so helpful to […]
Dear Yours Truly, I am a 26 year-old male in need of some advice. I have two different life-problems, but they’re somewhat related. So here goes: My first problem has to do with a general…malaise. Perhaps I should start at the beginning. In High School,and to some extent University, I was like some strange cross
My parents just celebrated their 40th anniversary! Because the nature of the parent-child relationship is that of unending self-sacrifice to overweening narcissism, and because it remains essentially impossible to truly imagine your parents having a life before you came along, I can only keep thinking of it in terms of myse
this Elizabeth Kolbert series about extinction is BLOWING MY MIND. I think this is the most important thing I have read since I learned how to read. It is actually amazing because just a few weeks ago we were wondering suddenly about what ancient people thought when they found fossils. Like, did the Greeks find […]
There are just a handful of days left in 2013. Where’d it all go? And how much time did we spend swilling in bars — not a god damn ‘nuff. We recently took a trip down memory lane, thinking of the best beer and cheeses we had this year. We are not immune to listacles. […]
Feel it has been too long since I shared images of my beautiful friend with all the world. Here he is, in all his grubby glory! He is the worst
Oh yes, well someone in the comments has asked me to tell the story of the time I ruined my brother’s Halloween party! GLAD YOU ASKED! It was a balmy October evening in Los Angeles, and my brother and his girlfriend had been planning their Halloween party for months. My brother had made a full-body […]
My old man is in a deep dissertation zone, under a heavy and scary deadline that he can barely talk about without getting sick. I am fully on board with his plight and am trying to be supportive in the only way I know how, which is to just try to be quiet and make […]
It’s hard to know how influential a band like the Neo Boys are. For those who don’t know, the Neo Boys were a young all-female punk band from the late 70s in Portland, Oregon. Their first show was opening for Television. An auspicious start. The also played with The Wipers and recorded and released records [...]
Am now back from in-law family reunion by a lovely mountain lake in which I swam like a little seal. Being around really religious people is always strange for me, since I grew up wholly heathen, with barely even a tiny amount of lip service ever paid to that way of life. And even my [...]
Gary and I have been legally wed for four years now or something Oddly today I am thinking so much about all my friends who made our wedding so amazing, who took so many burdens from off my shoulders and made me feel loved even though I was such a completely frazzled maniac that whole [...]

Big news: yours truly has been tapped to become the Editor-in-Chief of a rebooted version of OMNI, the classic science and science fiction magazine upon which yours truly cut her very own teeth. The chain of events leading up to this appointment is so strange and circuitous that I recommend you read my entire article on [.
I went to a whole other country to go to a conference on gregorian chant! When I told my friend Nick this, when he picked me up for an amazing evening during the conference because he lives in the city where the conference was, he said, “what’s gregorian chant?” and I said “it’s medieval church
Our favorite monthly video series show is back at the Hollywood Theatre this Monday August 5th at 7:30 pm. Sarah Meadows, UrHo’s favorite photographer (of owl and so much more) will be presenting along with Nina Reynolds and Sean Schumacher. View the event on Facebook.
It’s almost 2 am in the beer cave. Last call. The cave is closing. (One of them anyway.) These are the last three bottles left, and by the time we finish writing this, well, and then there were two. It all goes back to one Saturday afternoon in 2007. We biked 40 miles with a [...]
Well! In a marathon late-night session I finally finished Stefan Zweig’s famous biography of Marie Antoinette: The Portrait of an Average Woman. As his post-colonic suggests, Zweig’s primary thesis is that the Queen was a thoroughly mediocre woman made great by historical events. He situates his biography in bet
MEMORY LANE Well, yesterday marked our official ten year anniversary. I’m not usually much of one for making a big deal out of anniversaries–and you know those couples that, like, celebrate their six month anniversary and stuff? Reminds me of the Onion article about the nation gearing up for the one year anniver
Hi friends It’s been about two months since my last post following the 100 x 100 event at PICA. I aspire to be as productive as I once was, but the level of energy is slow in coming back. I wrote this note on May 18th, the one year anniversary of my bike accident, to friends [...]

Beware Of Darkness
At a recent semi-clandestine beer-drinking party, a great deal of heft was dealt in the direction of remembering. As you now come to expect, your fave Knives wax water-eyed about drunken memory with great consistency (like, all the time). After all, sense and its lasting sensations generate the most inspirational data we cu
Yes, I can’t find that entry either! I must’ve deleted it but I don’t know why. Maybe it also included ramblings about my hatred of procreation and/or death and dying in contemporary America, the two topics I am most wishy-washy about posting/deleting entries concerning. But my thoughts on Lolly Willowes i
