Life’s Little Lessons

So here’s my latest song, sort of a B side to Mr. Universe. Like Mr. Universe, this also drags up some old Hootenanny tapes. This time Terence McKenna is lending his naturally musical voice. For the rest of it, it’s just me in my office with a vanilla Dell PC, Adobe Audition recording software, some

Not Homer, Not Marge

You’ll have to take my word for it, but I drew these cartoon characters before I ever saw the Simpsons. The Simpsons first appeared on the Tracy Ullman Show in 1987, which I definitely did see.

I still love this image of Ken’s. He drew it and I animated back when animated gifs were the thing of the future, and Web 2.0 was but a sparkle in your mother’s eye. Who are they? Where are they going? Who’s that guy up front? What is that precious cargo?

Mississippi History

#131 (Mississippi History), 30″ W X 36″ H,graphite & acrylic on canvas I’m the pleased owner of this incredible painting by my friend Ken Weathersby. Ken has produced a series of maze paintings for the last several years. This one had the unique feature of the Confederate Flag in the center of it, an unstable
