The age old rivalry.. as a youngster  I would have  firmly thrown my lot in with the chipmunk gang but I've mellowed over the years and can appreciate the value of Disco Rubber Duckie. And a good gatefold sleeve. I'm not sure what the first punk gatefold would have been. If I had to guess it would have been Sham 69's Thats Life which I'm not that big fan of or The Ramones It's Alive, which is one of my favorite live albums ever.

About to drive my niece to an audition this morning. Picked up this Wyeth print at a thrift store, I find this kind of stuff to leave behind, and listening to this great comp which has all there early singles  a and b sides.. the later stuff I'm not so crazy about.

Sleepy Hollow


Tho I've seen them a number of times its a drag Motorhead are playing Riot Fest today. Apart from the fact I don't want to sit around watching a bunch of bands I have no interest in for the ticket price its farther away. New album is great too as usual and who knows this might be Lemmy's last stand.

some gear

I was super happy when I got this old bowling shoe bag since its perfect for carrying around most of the art supplies I use for sketching when out and about. Luckily I was able to pass on the super cute bowling shoes that came with it to a niece. Plus I like looking at  it.

Waiting Room

Took a friend to emergency (they're ok) which means waiting room sketches...

I love the Louvin Brothers and this record never fails to choke me up. I have a solo record by one of them and tho its ok the magic is a bit lost without the harmonies.

Sleepy Hollow


Yesterday I had this monster table delivered. I saw it last year up north and it was too big and too expensive tho I fell in love with it but this year it was less then half price as half the store was closing down so it was obviously meant to be mine. Wish I knew the date this drawing table was made. It will take me awhile to organize where it will be set up , tho it could be a large dinner table.  The small drawer has a lovely old lock but sadly no key so I can't hide anything away in there tho its not locked now .Started reading this excellent so far Edgar G. Ulmer bio a filmmaker  whose low budget efforts I've always enjoyed. I've been fascinated by his life and the various accounts  and things he's been involved with and exaggerations so looking forward how this reads.
