Dorian Warneck is a friend of a fried and a guy who makes living down in Charleston, SC look very, very good. I’ve never actually met him, but in this age of social media I feel like I kind of know the dude. I’ll get to the point: he shreds on a skateboard and behind a video camera. Get a load of what’s above, I’m sure you’ll agree. This beardo means business.
Such a great piece on swimming up stream to chase The Good Life on the HuffPo right now. As someone who turned down a second interview at Google, I can relate. Way to go, Ellen Huerta.
No, not that JERRY man, the other one, Jerry Seinfeld.
Head on down to about 2:00 for the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen on the internet. If we ever go to war with Australia, I think we’re in trouble.
If you read this thing on the regular side, you know that I am very fond of a certain band called Small Sur. Well, great news! They’re playing New England all this week, so you can become fond of them, too! Then we can bond over our fondness — you know for great music, stuff old men like to wear, and adventures and stuff like that.
Seriously, catch them here:

Check them out before you go if you gotta, but don’t not go! That’s it, over and out until I see you at any of the shows in Portsmouth, Portland or Boston.
I am ecstatic to announce the arrival of one hell of an art book. “You Are (On) an Island” documents the journey of a sculpture created by my friends Alicia Eggert and Mike Fleming. Last fall they flew to England and constructed the piece on the back of a rented truck and drove around doing random, temporary “installations.” Exceptional photos by Mike, copy editing by me!
Raise your kid in a non-conventional way, a non-conventional space, and they’ll thank you. Maybe not right off, but somewhere down the line.
Such was the case for Seattle musician Jherek Bischoff, who grew up on a sailboat with a tiny cabin for a room. After all that, a tour van probably seems like a palace. Serious inspiration here.
If you remember a while back I posted a little photographic journey through a residency program I did last summer. I called it a “Mid-Winterlude,” but the program, now in its second year, is actually called Hewn Oaks.
The big news is that TONIGHT is the application deadline for this summer, so get on it it you haven’t! Writers, visual and performing artists, musicians, filmmakers, craftspeople! If you live in Maine at least 50% of the year, are not in school and are 21+, you too could bask in the glory that is a sweet cabin of your own on Kezar Lake for a week.
