Yes, we are dorks.

But not only because we listen to NPR all day.
But because Deanna bought us tickets to taping of Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, an NPR news quiz show in Pasadena, CA. And Tony Hawk was the surprise guest!

I have a NEW interview at

Bid on a photo of mine here <<<

NPR is always the way to go. I listen every morning. Flipping back and forth between the morning shows and local NYC alternative music show via Seattle. I think maybe its because we are getting old and, how do you say, crotch-ity.

Tony!! ha.

Have you heard of This American Life? It's a show based in Chicago.
It's hosted by Ira Glass, & tells really epic, to absolutely terribly crude stories.

That minimum bid sounds right.

wow!! i have always wondered what the actual set of "wait, wait" looked like. i was thinking it would look a lot more like american bandstand-ish. weird...

also, do i remember reading before that you like lungfish? if that is so, i just wanted to point you in the direction of a band called end of a year (named after the embrace song). i run a little record label and put out a split they did last year, but i really think you'd dig it. SUPER bummer shit though.

I just got a twitter from Morrissey saying to vote for him on NPR.
Dude,I don't have 1000 dollars.

I do like Lungfish.
I think I have posted photos of Daniel Higgs on this site before.

And I totally listen to This American Life.

What happens to all those chemicals you use to develop your black and white? Do you have a service that comes and picks up the waste or do you take them to a dump station? Or do you dump them down the drain? Let's talk about the effects of those chemicals on the enviroment. Worth the $1000 starting bid on a picture of BAM? Who's to say? Not me...

How's Europe?
Tell Deanna that Carolyn & I say "Hello", & "Hello" to you as well.

Dear Chilgnons pullout,

#1, the photograph is a charity auction.
Learn about it here:
This means I made the print and paid to get it framed, then gave it to Juxtapoz to auction for charity. No money to me, all money to a worthy cause. That is why they set the prices like this.

#2, The Chemicals get put into plastic containers when I am done printing, then periodically, I take them to the city dump's chemical disposal unit, and they properly dispose of them. They do not end up in the ocean.

I never claimed that photography was particularly good for the environment, but it is the thing I love to do, and I have tried to build my life around it. I attempt to make up for it through the things I buy, be it food, cars, etc.
See here for one:
But do your own research.

I am 17 years old, and listen to NPR with an unhealthy obsession. Wait wait with Tony came on when I was getting out of my car to work, and I thought I knew the voice, thinking it had to be Tony. Sure enough they announced it was in fact the man himself, and I spent another miserable and dreary day at work missing my beloved NPR and childhood.
