2012/4/14 i'll do better next time
2011/7/10 It's been the kind of day where at some point one had better plans, but in the end what one does is lay about one's basement apartment acting out some stereotype of reclusive dorkitude.
2010/11/20 1:37pm. My sole intention for the weekend is to do nothing whatever in furtherance of my day job. I find that I am able to get just past noon before relapsing, and I manage to repress the impulse after only a few minutes. Clearly this is progress.
2010/11/3 It's Wednesday night and we're sitting in the Mountain Sun again.
2009/9/13 It's mid-September: normally the season of impending dissolution and incautious expectations. In Kansas they're parking trailers and setting up tents by now, stretching tarps and putting meat on the smoker. If I concentrate I can halfway hear string music and smell handrolled cigarettes. We won't be there this year, most of us, for one reason and another. Everything gets fucked up sooner or later, and the truth about the Good Life is that nothing ever comes for free.
2009/3/7 Levente's in town from Budapest. Today we tire of the suburban apartment and drive to Lyons to sit in the Barking Dog. It's been months since I was here. I reflect that things were better before I got it into my head to move into Boulder, away from the foothills and the elk and the dead grass and whatnot. Not in fact because I immediately lost my crappy job and my woman lost her mind and her interest in me, or any of that, but because somehow it was another movement away from a life I understood & wanted.

2007/9/28 Chris Mercogliano is in town on a book tour and crashing on our couch for a couple of days. I haven’t read the book yet, but I did go to a talk he did last night at Naropa. One liner version: Childhood is ever-more subject to a range of controlling and domesticating influences (soccer tots, medicalization, school, electronic pacification, you get the idea), and this is not a good thing.
2007/7/22 Anybody know of a decent place for rent in or about Boulder, CO, for less than 1200 bucks?
2007/2/12 I went to the DMV today to get my very first Colorado driver’s license. The office in Boulder is housed in the back of a near-death mall, and the atmosphere is the kind of Midwestern Soviet ca. 1987 that lets you know you’ve stumbled into a channel of that bureaucracy which runs like dry rot through the official American system. The older guys all look just like the actor who plays the bond company stooge in The Life Aquatic.
2006/4/20 should be a good day to be in boulder / says junior / on account of the holiday / holiday? / i ask / there is a pause / oh yeah, i say / that's right.

2005/11/5 This past Monday, of course, was All Hallows Eve - an observance which is well over a thousand years old in the Christian church and probably a good deal older in various pagan traditions. In tune as we are with our cultural heritage, we chose to celebrate in the traditional manner: By running drunk and naked down Pearl Street wearing carved pumpkins on our heads.
