Much as we like to think we’ve thought of everything, the world is an imperfect place and life a crazy thing and we are told to expect the unexpected. So when we want something on the site that doesn’t fall neatly into another category, you will find it here.



In 2017, my garden struggled. From 12 different plants, I got a total of about 14 tomatoes. This year, due to a combination of better feed (Vigoro FTW) and less drought, my garden is going crazy. A few weeks ago, I looked at my plants and said “holy shit, we’re going to get a thousand tomatoes this year” and it occurred to me it might be fun to track just how close we get to that. So here for your following pleasure is the 2018 Tomatometer. It will be updated as I harvest. Check back as often as you’re bored you like.

UPDATE: It is January 5, 2019, and I am still harvesting tomatoes from the 2018 planting.

Once upon a time, there was a thing called MySpace.  Some of you may remember it.  For a while, it was a place where a lot of artists of all kinds got together and shared their work, were inspired by one another, were fueled by each other’s creative energy.  It was there that I met Peter Schmideg, who first honored me by including my words and images in his work (linked in the above graphic), and very soon grew to be someone I was blessed to call a friend.  Our interactions, both personal and creative, inspired me to create the images in the Things I Blame Peter For gallery.  Sadly, Peter passed away in September 2014, but his work and his memory live on.
