rehashed an old sketch I drew of my apartment building for a concert poster this past week. Hear Nebraska, a new music non-profit started by old friend Andrew Norman, is staging a handful of benefit concerts before their social media site, hearnebraska.org, goes live in a couple weeks. In the mean time, they’re posting news on their Tumblr. So, go see a good show, and when the site’s up and running, sign up. It may not be Facebook, but I can pretty much promise Andrew’s cooler than that Zuckerberg clown.
his fall I posted about a winter project I was starting: building a bike. I started with a Mercier Kilo TT Deluxe frame in the middle of October, and each day I got a paycheck I ordered another component. It was getting built up and complete enough that by the time Christmas rolled around, my family was kind enough to gift to me the last pieces I needed. In the days since, I’ve finished putting everything together and now have a operational bike. Hooray! Since I haven’t got a deathwish, there’s a front brake on the way. But aside from that, it’s finished! Also, did you know that in English, “mercier” means “haberdasher”? And that, also in English, “haberdasher” means “clothier: a merchant who sells men’s clothing.”? Thanks, Google.
I can’t wait for spring!
