Directed an adorable video for a band I greatly favor: Speedy Ortiz
I predict it should be complete in a month or so. A few varieties of knives appear in it.
I was asked by an old lady to help her cross the street.
"What do you mean cross the street," I said to her.
I had to hunch to reach her hand.
Our hunches were exact.
I squinted at our shadows and wondered which one of us needed help the most.

I found a lady hair on my wiener this morning and I haven’t talked to a lady in a year
Some guy at a cafe asked about my computer and I told him about it.
It felt heroic.

Made sure little people inside media slab had enough inventory to last the day then became not much more than a living room decoration. Guzzled my way to the Berry Ferry and gathered bush ornaments for treats for later. Encountered a white wolf gatekeeper who quietly howled instructions and gave basket spoils to the quest party. Picked up an organic cell phone accessory and told it to eat pancakes. Called the Philippines to see if braces were needed to straighten some extra teeth which were anchored in dog gums. Cozied up on wet fabric.
Rode in a rocket car to a land called Sailfest. SPF 110 sunblock made us invisible. Scurried about the streets - experienced a civil war and defected to a side picked at random. A berry bodied high-level grump conjured water . Obtained many “hard” lemonades. Dissected a water bug and scarfed inside treasures - including a red support beam that ran the length of its insides.
My story “Experience Points” was published by Everyday Genius! I’ll have a little weird smile in the corner of my mouth all day.
