Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24

Wow what a day. (I write this Friday afternoon). (Been running around to like 4 stores merchandising. I've been out since 9 o'clock in the morning) (Ooh and my new couch came) (The FedEx guy hates me) (I mean it's a giant box. You could fit like four of me in there. Maybe more). (It's … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 24

I picked up a book (as one does when organizing a bookshelf, completely abandoning the project originally started.) It was Humphrey Carpenter's Tolkien, a lovely '77 edition.

Now we’re all bloody inspired.”

And even better than taking class, we were at the THEATER (because it's a lot more roomy than the studio and you know … Continue reading Saturday Morning Post, Vol. 21
