I’ve got too many projects going on. I just can’t seem to keep them straight and since they’re not straight they must be twisted, right. I know this is twisted: the evolution of the Jack in the Box clown from an evil leering head to an evil corporate head. Logos as a reflection of our […]
Category: what horrors has civilization wrought
I drive by this old Chevy dealership on my way to work most days. It’s on the north side of LBJ freeway about midway between Valley View Mall and The Galleria. Valley View is one of the older malls in Dallas, and since Macy’s moved out last year it looks like it’s deserted, at least […]
Kinda how I feel about the bailout. Yeah, it’s a huge chunk of money, but will we be able to recognize our little bit when we see it? And will it be in a form that we can take bites out of? Or will it just be an oddity we don’t know what to with?
After fooling around with digital collage in Photoshop yesterday, my hands were twitching for the feel of cold steel scissors and sticky acrylic adhesive. Maybe I’m thinking about privacy issues too much, because this is one of the things my fingers pulled out of my brain.
Where is an FDR when we need him?
All Bush can say is, “anxiety can feed anxiety and that can make it hard to see all that’s being done to solve the problem.”

Who knew working for a large corporation could be a matter of life and death? Who knew the bureaucracy and fear of liability might stand in the way of someone getting help in a medical emergency?
My co-workers and I found out the hard way this week when one of our own began having severe chest […]
It’s a holiday weekend, but it doesn’t feel like it. It feels like disaster waiting to happen. It’s hurricane season, and New Orleans residents are evacuating as Category 4 “Gustav” bears unswervingly toward them. Emergency services in North Texas are in 24 hour operating mode. Thirty thousand individually packaged meals are stacked in readiness, shelters […]
When you work for a big corporation and the national economy is in a downturn you don’t want to hear the word “consultant”. You know it’s a euphemism for a headhunter, and I don’t mean they’re looking to hire someone to oversee production, but rather some heads are going to be served up on a […]
I take medication to lower my cholesterol, and I’m nauseated.
I take medication to help me sleep, and I get a hangover.
I take medication to alleviate severe depression, and I lose my creativity.
It’s a tough choice sometimes, especially that last one. I felt miserable from my teenagehood until well into my thirties when I was diagnosed […]
