The commute home.

Ah the glorious life of the curator.

I'm pretty sure one of these is Woody Allen's house, no really!

Making money in New York is easy.

These were the worst fries I've ever had, hands down.

It's the boobies part of your foot. No word yet on the location of the cock and balls portion.

Auggie and Nicole will be here in two weeks, a little less actually, and I'm super excited to show them around and get really drunk. I'm actually going to be in Portland at the end of August, so stay tuned for exact days and locations. Probably stay with Nick and Jackson for a bit, but Brian T Smith will also be living there by then as well. He's landed a dream job covering the blazers for a Vancouver paper and beat out people from all over the US for it, including writers from Chicago Tribune if I'm not mistaken. Give him a call and buy him a beer now, before his season tickets go to someone else.
I have two shows coming up, my first in NY and therefore my first in almost seven months. I'm excited and nervous, and very happy that Nicole and Auggie will get to see one of them. Work's going well, can't really talk about it, but I love my job. We just had the Dead Weather (Jack White's new band) play downstairs in the bar and I think have finally recovered from the many days of preparation. Kids were actually camping out the night before to get in (pictures to come). If you want to see what's happening at my job, pop on over to
Leanne's out of town this weekend visiting her parents so I've been eating home cooked pizza and drinking pabst for a few days. I did manage to shave myself the other day, which I'm proud of. I will now go to all of your blogs and see what you are doing. Miss your faces!

Jerry and Jaimey visited too! They were in town for a wedding and I we had a great time walking over the Brooklyn Bridge (mandatory) and getting coffe vacumed into individual cups. The new Ace looks very nice, but I'm not too hot on their customer service (long story). We wanted to ride these scooter acroos the bridge but they cost a fortune!

This is how big a blue whale is, fucking big.

Guess what, I met Sonic Youth, the whole band, when they released their record at our gallery. This is Thurston's art.

Nick let Leanne do his hair. Very Flock of Seagulls, eh?

Been too long

Nick and Jackson came back from South America and we took them to this crazy Indian place that is right next to another crazy Indian place and the men out front fight over your business. They both have the exact same decor and it's very amusing. They didn't give Nick all of his dinner though, and then they wouldn't knock any bucks off the bill and I got heated and told them we'd be going next door from then on!

A very nice day spent alone in the big city. The view from the Manhattan bridge, the Met, and Central Park. This little guy looks like something I'd draw, only he's a few hundred years old.

Oh god, this is making me so hungry. Let's go into this establishment and order some of their delicious looking food.

This is a dumpster full of pillows! It's like in the cartoons, when someone falls out the window and lands safely on pillows, that can really happen.

Wasn't supposed to take pictures, got into trouble. I sorries.

Near downtown Brooklyn, fun park.

Ah, the Met. Been here a lot lately. I love me some Modiglioni.

Ian came to visit and we had a great time. He played my guitar and it was beautiful. We ate good food, went to the Natural Hist. Museum, and caught a performance by the NYPHS in a huge old church. Great concert even if the line to get in was three bocks long and we couldn't see much. We also went to a burlesque show and Ian met Moby.This bathroom was very sketchy at the club. Ian loves icecream.

Theo Mercier was inspired by my bathroom invention and made this work after seeing it. Only thing is, it's selling for around 7 grand and I'm not getting a cut. Everything is starting to look like a site specific installation to me. These chicken wings on the subway stairs would probably sell...
