This week I am discovering that writing, arranging, designing, directing, pre-producing, and producing can cause more than slight stress when attempted all-at-once.

Besides that surprising news, here are some things that I await with trepidation:

Joann Sfar's film "fable" about Serge Gainsbourg,

Temple Grandin, the movie,

The new Joanna Newsom record.

And some things with intrepid weight:

Poets ranked by beard weight.

Also, I am a big fan of this man's toys, and you might be too.

Signs of Life


I did survive into 2010. In fact Christmas and New Year were both really lovely, I just haven't had a moment to look back (and while work is fun and a privilege at the moment, doing so makes me a bit melancholy).

I remember some stuff about one end of the country...

...and then the other...

...this song, which I just got a tv-show episode out of (one of 52 that have to be written, which is why there isn't time for blog posts)...

...and wasn't there something to do with a seven-foot icicle?

Not to mention bagpipes.

(Not to mention them, but there are more videos of the piping and such [not mine] here).
