When I lived in New York, a camera was my constant companion and no corner of my life and times went undocumented. My flickr stream, which I began when the site was still in beta, was once a full-fledged obsession and now stands as a rarely-visited vestige of that time in my life that yielded […]
There’s no people like puppet people. They (okay, we) are a truly hilarious and weird bunch. I don’t puppeteer, myself, but local Puppetmistress Carrie Morris (who leads the charge over at CMAP, in the Puppet House on Carpenter) figured out about my deep roots as a costumer, and engages me, on occasion, to make costumes […]
