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
Hi, Woah, I have really fallen off the bandwagon of fitness blogging, huh? When I started teaching full time my entire life/productivity output/time structure changed. Since my birthday (three months ago already?!) I have been focused on health, philosophy, current events, art, photo, art history, and creative writing class
Last year Mike Daisey was at the center of a controversy that sparked a great deal of discussion surrounding the problem of authenticity, and the role of journalism in an art context. Our own Andrew Dickson wrote an essay exploring these conflicts. Aside from a general apology and an extremely awkward appearance on NPR, Dai
Everyone keeps asking me if I’m “all done,” and I say “yes!” and then they say “are you really all done?” and I say “well, not really.” I am still getting grade-grubbing emails and still getting emails from my department supervisor and stuff. Haven’t yet filed this
Because TwoFiveSix was the best conference I’ve been to in a very, very long time I created virtual version of the conference by scraping twitter for anyone interacting with the #twofivesix hashtag: https://twitter.com/kmikeym/twofivesix Because it seemed like kind of a drag I used odesk to hire someone to look throug
Join writer Jeff Parker on Wednesday May 29 to celebrate the release of ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #1, featuring work by Jeff Parker and Chris Samnee, plus stories by Jeff Lemire and the team of Justin Jordan and Riley Rossmo. 100% of the proceeds from this issue will be donated to Allout.org to support their fight [...]
Travelled to Washington DC for the first time. I love any city were I stumble across more than one Brooks Brothers. I saw Sam Donaldson in the lobby of our hotel. I was bummed he was wearing plaid. Then went to New York for the TwoFiveSix conference and that was amazing. I haven’t felt as [...]
- seems like 2 abrupt subject changes…. - not sure what this ‘way’ is - but not women?! People are crazy! - well, but the ballerina does this also - “the audience” is the subject of this sentence - incorrect quote. I know because this is from my article I wrote - yes! Another comparison [...]
“A good science fiction story should be able to predict not the automobile but the traffic jam” – Fredrik Pohl I’ve been watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine recently for the first time in 20 years. I have vague memories of the pilot from its original airing when I was in middle school, mostly of [...
