good medicine

the best thing for a cold? a hot toddy of course!

mix tea and whiskey. that's it.

add honey if you feel like it.

drink out of a ben franklin mug if you are awesome.

if you don't feel better, something is clearly wrong with you.

gnar gnar

so i needed to get from philadelphia to moorestown nj last weekend and being that i do not own an automobile, i ended up taking a train to haddonfield nj and riding my bicycle to moorestown. it was an interesting experience being on a bicycle in places where i had only driven, you can really get a good look at the details, for example:

it may be hard to tell, but this was a cat. it is now possibly the gnarliest piece of roadkill i have ever seen. at first i thought it had eaten a plastic bag, but no, that's its skin. it had been stripped of fur from being constantly run over by cars and tanned like leather from lying on the highway. you could've made a shoe out of this thing. GNARLAWESOME!

new digs

just moved this month, and i must say, i am very pleased with my new room. here are some of the highlights:

i am obscenely happy with this wall. guatemalan prayer masks from my brother, handlebar curtain rod extender (invented by yours truly) complete with skull stem, home made Rx bottle christmas lights, and trash picked (can't believe someone threw this away) leopard painting.

i have wanted a hanging plant since forever. now i have one. i can die happy.

bauhaus poster, prints by aaron cossrow and john sandy, bottle of blood courtesy of eric welch, my old volvo license plate, mec. doodle by andrew mccandlish, trash picked american flag, and a corny as hell dream catcher purchased at carnival in upstate pa approximately one eternity ago.

ceramic tiger, some material explorations from intro to furniture with the world's greatest human being, don miller, one armed army guy found in the sand at the jersey shore, and drunken pirate figurine.

some watercolor experiments

over the 3 days it took me to pack, move, and unpack, all i had was my watercolor kit, 1 brush, and my sketchbook. viola.

transcontinental doodles

some crap i drew on the plane from philadelphia to san francisco.

(crush and debauchery are the names of the strippers from whom i received 1/2 price lap dances. i wanted to remember their names in the morning.)
