But dang, it's led to so many wonderful things... Inspiring meetings, much exchanging of ideas, incredible invitations, collaborations, friendships (both virtual and real life), creative support - hell, even emotional support. Sometimes during the 'creative process' i have my moments of self doubt. It's always wonderful to start the day out with a comment or an email from someone who is interested in what you are doing.
Anyway, I've had a ball the last few years. I've gotten to a place i've always wanted to be, spending 100% of my time working on my own projects. Okay, it hasn't been easy but i ain't starvin' yet and i'm happy as hell. This has only been possible because of the wonderful support i've received and a lot of that support has come from the internets. My sincere gratitude to all of you. It's been a joy to blog! I intend to carry on and hopefully you will continue to find it entertaining along the way.
Dull Tool Dim Bulb
"Dull Tool Dim Bulb were the only swear words my father ever used. Items from the Jim Linderman Collection of Vernacular Photography, Folk Art, Ephemera and Curiosities."
I would really like to meet Jim Linderman. Actually, i'd like to hang out a while and have a few drinks together. Amazing collections. Fervent, a little haunting and naughty in the nicest way.

I'll be the one in heels
From Kalisa, my best girlfriend from High School in Long Beach Mississippi, now living in Memphis. I love reading everything,... from what she's writing, what she's wearing, what's happening with the family and which appliance just f*cking broke down.
Duh! Who doesn't love BoingBoing!? Coolest stuff on the web, right? And Mark Frauenfelder is great. I adore his whole philosophy about stuff, his lightheartedness and his 'Maker' mentality. Just a real jovial fella'.
Rima, goodness, how can i describe Rima. She's so dreamy, she lives a dreamy life. Has a beautifully renovated horse truck in which she roams about the beautiful english country side making and selling her amazing artwork. This is the person i would most like to hang around a campfire with.
