What happens when a 35-year experience designer goes to Disney? --------------------------------------------------------------- I was born in New Jersey. In a little town outside of Newark called Hillside. Population who cares. 20 minutes to NYC at 3:00 AM. Two hours at 9:00 AM. But my biological father had his third heart attack or something and the genius doctor gave my dad a prescription: Florida. “Move to Florida, you’ll be right as rain. It’s the cold weather that’s ailing you.” What was ai ...Continue Reading

So there is an election in 95 days. There is a guy running for president in that election. I want him to lose. His name is Scott Weiner. I detest him. He makes me mad. You detest him as well. He is a state senator now. There is a person running against him. She can’t win. Pelosi is going to retire in 2022. Weiner will win her seat. He will then run for Govenor. Then for president. Maybe. Who knows. But she can’t win. Right? Every story is a story of a person of power who underestimated their opp ...Continue Reading

It's been so long since I posted anything here... it's weird. But Marc Powell wanted me to send a link to the Pissed Off Voters Guide. I don't know if you need it, but here it is: http://www.theleaguesf.org/guide/ There is lots of good info there. I"m all in for Bernie, of course. I don't vote on DCCC races because I kinda detest that cabal. But you do you. Life is good. Busy. We had another kiddo, I'd show you a photo but I can't figure out how to attach it! Sorry! AND NOW> ...Continue Reading

Sxip Shirey is at it again. His brilliant producing and composing is bringing forth a new album entitled Goodnight Little Machines. Only this time, his new project also includes visual art, animation and film by artists such as Shaun Tan, Coco Karol, Funquest and many more - all inspired by Shirey's music itself. But this can't be done without the help of you. The Indiegogo for the new album closes TODAY and we think it's absolutely worthy of supporting. So go take a look, poke around his w ...Continue Reading

Why you should vote for Gavin Newsom for Governor of California 2018 You should vote for Captain Hair Product for Governor because I have footage of him running away from a singing telegram I sent him. If he wins the Governorship, he’ll run for president. And he could win. Then, I would have footage of the President of the United States of America running away from a singing telegram. And that’s the world I want to live in. Thank you for listening chickenjohn ...Continue Reading

So usually I do a voter guide. Talk about all the candidates and tell you what I know. I'm not going to do that this year. Instead, I'm going to tell you what I am doing right now to make the world better (in politics, anyway) Give this woman money RIGHT NOW: https://zephyrforny.com If Donald Trump makes you want to go look at how much houses cost in New Zeland, give her money. She will make a bunch of Trump drama help to further incite the civil war that is coming to this country. Giv ...Continue Reading

READ THIS: https://medium.com/@JaneKimCA/no-filter-6f4247335455 OK, so the reporter is writing a hatchet job. This isn’t journalism, this is corruption. Wonder how much Ron Conway paid Rachel Swan twitter.com/rachelswan to drag Jane through the muck? I’ll bet it was cheap. The story that would come out of ques ...Continue Reading

Please consider the following: So some of you know that I made a car run and drive on coffee grinds as fuel. Some of you know that I claim to have made the car run/drive on grinds, but don’t believe me. I don’t blame you, it’s pretty fantastic. But in the same way I didn’t write any of my books, I also didn’t make my car run on bio-mass. Jim did. And it was about good time that guy finished something, but that’s another story… The point here is that he went ALL THE WAY. You should support peopl ...Continue Reading
