I'm a super shy live music & travel photographer. I post snippets of my daily life and other mundane things. Out of all the crap I blab about, I think you can trust my opinion on music the most. Read more. Sometimes, I blog with a few more words here.

So, I mentioned that I’ve been looking for art to hang in my room. I’ve been reading this comic that Justin introduced me to a long time ago. He said his friend does some hilarious daily comics with animals. That daily comic strip is called Crimes Against Hugh’s Manatees! About two weeks ago, I emailed Hugh about this particular comic that I was interested in purchasing. Though none of them were for sale at the moment, he said he’d send it out to me anyway. WHAT?! How awesome!

Anyway, that was about two weeks ago. I got it in the mail today and I couldn’t be more excited. It’s perfect. Justin agrees that it pretty much describes me in a nutshell. Thank you, Hugh! I’ll get it framed ASAP!

Justin now works at Bob’s Burgers, one of the best animated comedy series on TV right now. So proud of him!


An episode I wrote of Cartoon Network’s How to Train Your Dragon TV series, (DreamWorks’ Dragons: Riders of Berk) airs tomorrow night!

8PM Eastern, 5PM Pacific. I haven’t seen the final animation, but the series so far has looked tremendous for CG. And this episode, titled “When Lightning Strikes,” should have some cool special effects at very least.

Hope you were able to catch the excellent episode 13 of How To Train Your Dragon because this awesome person right here wrote it!

P.S. It’s currently on YouTube if you missed it.

Rest in peace, Dolphy. Thanks for all the laughs. Read about him on The New York Times here.

Chad VanGaalen live at The Fonda

I’ve always wanted to see him live and it has finally come true! Pure happiness.

Why the internet is awesome: You meet people like PJ whose drive and passion for art makes me feel like a total slacker. He just sent me this lovely Henri Cartier-Bresson postcard. He’s one of my all-time favorite photographers (and most likely everyone else’s too. I mean, why not?). Thank you, PJ!

Why I suck: I owe mail to so many of you and I’m sorry! I’ve been so caught up with work (and blah blah blah), but I promise to swing by the post office tomorrow to send out the first batch of postcards and vinyls. I have to do them in batches because I ran out of postcards! :| Zet suuuuucks, man.

I did a short interview with Phil of Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin for Restless Cities! Read the whole article here.

Another Owen photo because I’m a dork and that night really changed my life. Seriously.

I interviewed and photographed Mike Kinsella for Restless Cities. You should check it out here.
