The Daily Practice

10, May 2012

Greetings from rainy Austin. I love saying that because last summer I thought perhaps I might just lay down on the boiling hot asphalt and wait for the elements to make me into jerky, it was that hot. It will probably get that hot again, but for right now it’s cloudy and threatening to rain […]

Early Month Check In

8, Feb 2012

Alright, so month 2 of 12 months of experiments is underway, and as explained below, I’m calling this one The Early Month. This has actually turned into a bit of a misnomer because while I tried, I cannot quite tweak my schedule to get up at 5 AM at this juncture. There is rarely the […]

January was the “ease in slowly” month. Photos are phun. I finally found the joys of Instagram, so there’s that. As I mentioned earlier, it’s nice to have to stare at seemingly mundane situations and have to pull a photo out of them (as in, “CRAP I haven’t taken a photo yet today quick!”). Art […]

Photo A Day Week #4

31, Jan 2012

My last round of photos…it was a good month. Remembering to take a photo every day was harder than it sounded (heeeeeey, post office!) but it showed me that there’s an interesting picture just about everywhere you look. 1/22 – Bouldin Creek Coffee has these tofu breakfast tacos made of AN ADDICTIVE SUBSTANCE I cannot […]

Photo A Day Week #3

1/15 – I spent a good chunk of time at a coffeehouse…with this Brainstorm book. 1/16 – Monday was mastermind meeting day with Susan and Elizabeth. We each got a cookie. I was oatmeal M&M. 1/17 – Kathleen Edwards album release day! One of the “must buy the day it comes out” artists. 1/18 – […]

Photo A Day Week #2

16, Jan 2012

So far so good. This week was a productive one. 1/8 – It was grey out the first couple of days. Zzzzz.1/9 – Yep. Still grey.1/10 – Susan, Brennen Leigh, and Noel McKay songswapped at the Mucky Duck. Lovely.1/11 – Spent the day working on a new video project based on Portlandia. Forthcoming. 1/12 – […]

All right…since I had to switch experiments after Day 1 this month, I’m doing a photo a day. It’s actually kind of fun to think about which moment I’d like to have encapsulate things for the day. Here’s week one! 1/1 – I hung out with Katie on New Year’s Eve! She wore this hat. […]

Experiments Update

5, Jan 2012

Let me explain. I had a good one for January – I was going to walk every day. Walking is good for the body and for the brain. Except there have been a series of events in Austin over New Year’s that have made that a little bit hard to do…in that there is apparently […]

A Year of Experiments

1, Jan 2012

Happy New Year and all that implies! So far I have managed to nap, grocery shop, and take out the trash. This is actually considered progress. Starting tomorrow I’ll be on board with my first of 12 month-long life experiments. I say I’m starting tomorrow because I’m not quite sure what January’s is yet. The […]
