Yo Gabba Gabba, Yo Hipsta Hipsta

posted Monday December 6th, 2010

The other day, a dear friend observed that my photos on GIAPH have been looking a little funny color-wise lately. I explained that I’ve been playing with an iPhone app called Hipstamatic. It makes your pictures look grainy, off-centered and miscolored, a la old snapshots from the 70s. Why, you ask, would anyone want to screw up […]

We’ll Take Manhattan

posted Friday March 19th, 2010

It’s not easy, being a tourist in a city you once thought you’d call home. I should know.

Maybe I drove […]

Happy October

posted Thursday October 1st, 2009

This morning was greeted before dawn and with great excitement. It’s October. The girls and I rolled around in bed and talked about Halloween costumes (Annabelle’s going to be a black poodle; Sophie’s still undecided, maybe Foofa from Yo Gabba Gabba, or maybe a cat, or Cinderella to complement Ms. X’s Fairy Godmother costume — […]

Ode to the Oilcloth Tablecloth

posted Monday December 29th, 2008

Have you heard of Calef Brown? If you haven’t, grab one of the bookstore gift cards you got for the holidays, and run out and buy one of his collections of poetry, which include “Polkabats and Octopus Slacks” and “Flamingo on the Roof” (www.calefbrown.com). It’s the stuff you had children for — this guy’s the Dan […]
