i shoveled out today.
i shoveled out tonight.
must we shovel endlessly?

winter in new england is such a beautiful bitch.

i went down to new haven. came back. buried.

and with the addition of cell phones to our public landscape, if you

people aren’t private anymore, they’ll cry and wail and scream at
their boyfriends girlfriends and mothers and friends while you sit
next to them on the bench at the station,

the SHIRT that everyone has been asking for is finally here, in bulk.
beth designed it (it was one of the reasons we MET, actually…she
read my idea in a blog, made the shirt, and brought it to a show….
and now she’s my assistant. go figure) and blake (yes, blake), printed
them up on his magical silk-screen machine.
they are $30 and you can get them at the one and only postwartrade.com:
