“Home” and the impossible assessment of the present

For years the idea of moving to New York City was a thing we said with the “when”  defined as “someday.” Then, during our 2016 annual “planning the year” session, we decided: let’s finally make this happen in Fall ’16.  How about we tour in Weston (our Westfalia) with #Comments to Seattle in June, hang out for a couple of months (to help fix up my Mom’s house and visit friends/family…and put together a family reunion), then head over to our new home (without having a home, yet)? Check.  In Seattle, we booked an AirBnB in Brooklyn for a month, … Keep goin’

USA tour, part II

Screening #Comments at different theaters and spaces across the US has been so much fun. We weren’t sure if the screenings would go as well as our Durham, NC premiere, but overall (with one exception — I’m looking at you, DC!) the screenings have gone very well. It has been entertaining to realize our desire to break up traditional rock shows with film at each event, and it has been restful to haul my flash drive instead of my drumkit and amps to shows.

Bringing #Comments to life

Almost two years ago, after winter drinks with a couple of friends, I came home and read an article about the deliciousness of a vegan mayo, Vegenaise. The article was positive, and I was feeling happy that a vegan product got such a great review. And then I scrolled down to the … Comments (Deep, booming voice here.) As usual, all who commented were kind, considerate, and thereby restored my faith in humanity. Um, no. Always disheartening, never productive, comments have a way of encouraging — what’s the opposite of “faith”? — disbelief in humanity. It occurred to me that, … Keep goin’
