I turned 39 yesterday! Wait, no, the day before yesterday. Anyway, it’s my last year of Pushin Forty and I’m kind of sad about it because I like that joke. So far I am not that depressed about aging although I’m sure that time will come if I live long enough. My mom turned 70 […]

Things I enjoy about my current life phase: - eating alone and grossly, with my hands, making smacking noises, in public, is no problem for me - zero compunctions any longer re: telling crazy and/or menacing men on the street to leave me alone - Enjoy six hour long Wim Wenders films - When I […]

Over the weekend, some woman who probably spent a crapload of money to stand in the pit next to the stage at a Beyoncé concert spent her time there catching Pokémon, instantly becoming the mortal enemy of the Hive and, if she’s ever identified, the possessor of social mentions resembling a war zone. Read the […]

It’s already becoming abundantly clear that 2016 is going to be the year VR starts to break in a big way. But with all that being said, there are still major hurdles and limitations when it comes to artists making experiences for VR. There is, however, an interim step that artists and live music venues […]

I dreamed I couldn’t spell “Foucault.” People kept jeering at me–I kept getting these harrowing editorial reviews back, with “track changes” turned on and the whole document completely awash in red–but I couldn’t stop spelling it “Foucauld.” Even in the dream, I wa

It has not been the focused and relaxing summer I had anticipated and planned for, but I suppose it never is. I keep thinking that once I get finished with x, or once y is over, things will be great and easy. I realized last night that I have been thinking that way for at […]

Good lord! What is going on? I am rarely fully on the internet now that it is summer, if you can imagine such a lifestyle, and the only thing I miss is constantly writing about myself on my blog. Now we are trying to take it a step further and get off our phones more. […]

I have been working like a skunk; it is a beautiful feeling. I can’t say enough good things about it. I have been wondering why I find my work so unbelievably satisfying–it’s unlike any job I have ever had in my life, in that sense, even teaching, which I love. I wake up every morning […]

I just graduated from a PhD program in the humanities (woohoo!) and I actually have a job, but I really don’t want it. Before you roll your eyes, since I know no one has a job in this economy, let me tell you that it’s a 1-year appointment in the department I just graduated from, […]

Nalu Gruschkus is a 13 year old woman and fellow Marfa resident whom I have the unearthly privilege to call my friend and yes, kindred spirit. Nalu and I do allot of cool things together. These things include:   having slumber parties choreographing dance pieces eating pizza discussing the tribulations of young men pla

The other day I came home and saw my husband’s to-do list on the shelf in the entryway. It said: - bird sounds - ebirds - Man Ray translation Since quitting academia he has developed a passion for birding. He bought a double CD called “Birding by Ear” and is now difficult to go on […]

Last night I “taught” the last class of the year. I put “taught” in quotation marks because the class consisted of an enormous African dance and drumming troupe coming in and forcing all 150 of my students to dance and sing. It was so fun and I loved it; even the rude handsome jocks who […]

“I enter GanjaCon with a vague mission: I want to get past the novelty and occasional silliness of a public celebration of cannabis. I want to try to take the people who take weed seriously seriously. I want to learn.”

Houseguest is a public art intervention at Pioneer Courthouse Square in Downtown Portland, Oregon, USA. It’s an experiment in site-specificity, collaboration, and participatory public art in a city where space is an asset. How will you respond?

Although I have never personally been a user of the much maligned typeface Comic Sans, I recently found there are actually appropriate uses for the font. Many Portlanders fondly remember the goats grazing over on Southeast Belmont Avenue. They were fun and quirky, yet thoroughly practical in keeping the grasses down—a

I am on my computer at an establishment that is in between a grad student bar and a semi-nice restaurant and I don’t know if it is weird that I am on my computer. No one else is in here. Oh the etiquette perils of modern life. I just consumed a full order of nachos […]

I wrote this song with Tavahn Ghazi after accidentally eating a large handful of medicinal marijuana trail mix at 10am. The song concept started out as a poor stretch toward a dissection of romantic nihilism but after about an hour post-mix I was sitting on the ceiling looking down at my giraffe body in the [...]

It is now truly the countdown to summer vacation. Our last day of school is April 27, if you can believe that! - only four more seminars - only three more undergrad lectures - only two more discussion sections - only eighteen thousand more committee meetings As you know, I have a number of non-school-related […]

  I am one very tall (I guess if you assume that 6 foot one is so very tall though it does seem like teenagers are taller now than they were in 1999 when I was one so perhaps the coming genetic mutations will bring with them some sense of social rectification of size for [...]

A few days ago I pushed through into a new (bad) phase of this hip dysplasia situation, and now I really can barely walk. All of a sudden! In the past it has flared up and then faded back down to a manageable level, but this flare-up is lasting longer than ever before and I’m […]

As part of my job I routinely receive solicitous email from various corporate entities who are trying (successfully) to prey on higher education in various ways. The emails are uniformly poorly written, with misspellings and typos, but they also manifest a really chilling kind of circular meaninglessness that I think charac

I have been reading about capital mobility and floating exchange rates and how the privatization of the educational system will bring an end to racial discrimination for 1.5 days and I needed a break so I came here to the co-op to get myself a “gigantic crunchy salad,” which I succeeded in doing and which [̷

This weekend is the annual St. Patrick’s Day Massacre here on campus. The year before I got this job, this event made national headlines for basically turning into a Bacchanalian nightmare of drunk undergrads rampaging like a massive, lumbering tornado cutting a swath of destruction across much of campus and the surro

Well, it happened! We bottled our cider, which means we drank a bunch of our cider. As you will recall, we recently went to a somewhat life-changing event, in the form of a cider festival near our home. The following week, we purchased five gallons of apple cider from a local orchard (it is a […]
