holiday squid

octopus chop!

My friend Richey came to visit in late October and brought AN AMAZING BIRTHDAY PRESENT! While she was at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, she had an artist make a "chop" for me. I.E. a totally awesome stamp. The "g" is the first letter of my last name.

Thanks, Richey!

rad cephalopod skateboards.

a while back, my friend had a skateboard in the trunk of his car. He pulled it out and I attempted to skateboard on it (with poor results). Which for some reason has caused me, weeks later, to do a search on cephalopod related skateboards. I also included a french octopus skateboarding poster--I think it's the best part.
