I re-activated my SG account after about three and a half years. Things sure have changed around here. I just spent an hour reading all my old blog posts (did they even call them "blogs" back then) from 2004/5. My life is so very different now. I'm living in a new town in a new state with a new job and a new...

On the one hand I had a really good dinner last night with a friend from the English department who took me out to thank me for talking to her classes and told me what a great job I'm doing.

On the other hand, my 10:30 appointment blew me off and my evil bossman just dropped some shit on my desk that HE...

So that's what the baby jesus looks like!

Schultz gets the Blues is out in DVD!
If you ain't seen it, drop everything.
If you have, you probably will anyway.

Have a great weekend. You seem well stocked.

Back to school sales get me all worked up into a phrenzy.

That's right: A PHRENZY

The pencils.

The pencil cases.

The smell of a brand new trapper keeper!

I expire!

Thanks.

The right site, working from a collection like
Bill Blackbeard once maintained, which is now
at Ohio State, could ring the bells from here to
Wales.

This is nice stuff. THANKS. You knew I just
signed a small contract to write a book about
the first decades of the history of the comics.
By the way that Men of Tomorrow book is just
terrific, if you don't know it already. He's a
nice guy, too. We did a program for KPFA together.

The irrelevant smart rump to the comics world
gets smarter, and more germane to art all the
time. But who is kidding who. It's the facist
avenger core to the Superheroes which is winning all the audiences. Alan Moore had it
dead on with Watchman twenty years ago.

I see Fatality among your friends. She is probably a genius. I think the world of her.

Back to school sales are espcially nice when they conicide with no tax week.

On vacation. I need to come up with a single picture that captures my vacation vibe, but so far it's just me and a stack of books and lots of music.

I just finished a big book about the Rolling Stones--a band I've always kind of liked but never studied in any systematic way. I spent the last week reading their history and...

So the whole purpose of my trip to Amsterdam was to attend my best friend's wedding which was in Bielefeld, Germany. After he and I spent two glorious nights in Amsterdam we took a train due East to Bielefeld.

The whole event was really nicely done, but them Germans sure do love their booze. The ceremony ran from noon to about 12:30 and...

Good to have those musings,
especially from another guy.

i'd like to build with the sg's this
bringing back a new punk burlesque
movement,
as I can seldom can find porn which
I don't find degrading,
and I hung out with the great gang
at the old Mitchell Brothers for years.

But I dig them dancing, and asking for tips.
And I tip, and always send flowers.

And then there are those real moments
when you glimpse somebody really interesting
is inside this particular sexy model
I wonder who she actually is?

That's the kind of save environment I am
trying to create both for those people, and me.

Everybody I list as a friend holds for me that
glimpse, and so of us are now on a real name,
stop by and let's have a beer if you are in town.
I am a step or two even beyond that with two
women here, but we will keep learning as we go
on.

Someday, probably that day when we get to
have our beer, I'd love to talk more to you about
your work. I would suggest you look into archiving some of the people I feature in my
THE NEW SMITHSONIAN BOOK OF COMIC
BOOK STORIES. I think the future is only going to bring some of these guys greater and
greater literary recognition. I was so thrilled
when a chapter from our edition of Paul Auster's
City of Glass; a story by Lynda Barry; and something from Maus became the first three
comic book works to be included in the Norton
Book of the best of Post Modern Fiction. It's
one of the truly fun things working in this field.
It's like playing for the Boston Red Sox, and just
knowing your day really is coming soon.

All the best, Drago

Now that I'm back on top of things at work, my Amsterdam-mania seems to have settled down to a more reasonable level as well.

I've spent a lot of time looking at this web site:

AXXXTW

It's a really well-done guide to sex and drugs and Amsterdam in general. Parts of it are hilarious.

I also started reading two really good books...

Should be a fun trip... Two friends of mine will actually be in Amsterdam for the upcoming semester, and they're both really excited for it. In fact, maybe I'll pass on to them the website you link to.

Funny you should mention the torture exhibition in Sienna, because when I was there I passed by it. A "torture museum" I think, featuring a skeleton in a body-shaped cage at the entrance, if I remember correctly. I was with little sisters and a mom and what-not, and thus ended up not actually going in, but it looked so interesting.

Anyway, thanks for the comment on my journal.
