2013: 76 posts.
Over a year ago I was coaxed into drawing again after a very very long time of not drawing or hardly drawing at all. It’s been silkscreened on a shirt now. The audience is small, but that doesn’t matter as much as the fact that my work has made some people happy, and that’s rad….
- Scrobbling with last.fm
I have had a last.fm account since 2005. Most of the music represented in here is from a long time ago. The only brand new additions on the list above are My Bloody Valentine and Blooper, who I first became aware of only in the last few months. I was scrobbling a lot in 2005,…

I did not blog at all in March, 2013. This is a placeholder to that effect.

- May 03, 2013ArtLung Semidaily Links
In 2004 the linkblogging bug bit me. I was inspired by Jorn Barger and Andy Baio. This predated twitter, and Facebook of course. And providing an updated list of “what’s cool” was really fun to do. I gave up on it in 2005, and found the original del.icio.us and moved everything there. In the 8…

- Miscellany time
Hurrumph. I read quite a bit. I never blog. Revisiting the Original 1992 WIRED Media Kit by Brian Dear. Refuse to be terrorized. Tim Bray buys some BitCoins: Bought some BitCoins; yes, a bit of a Sprawl-trilogy flavor.Wonder if I’ll ever see the money again? goo.gl/NlY3r — Tim Bray (@timbray) April 10, 2013 Susan made…
- Interview about Bradley Manning; New Header
Pay attention to this: Interview of Alexa O’Brien @carwinb by @theharryshearer on Le Show is riveting on the Bradley Manning Trial. Listen @ kcrw.com/etc/programs/ls — Joe Crawford (@artlung) May 6, 2013 Additionally, I made a new header. First header I’ve made since 2011.
- Choose a Gift for Phyllis
This time of year is hard. Clicking through gets me to a grid of easily purchased items under the headline: “Choose a Gift for Phyllis.” Social media, Facebook, knows who my mother is. It’s smart enough to know that. And in spite of the fact that she died in October, 2010, I can’t bear, yet,…

I’m on a header jag. Photos galore result in headers galore.

- May 27, 2013better poetic than nostalgic
Driving south through California. The bugs on the windscreen. Cows. Pastures. Green and gold fields. Blue sky. Increasingly aggressive cars as the land rises up from flatness. Culminates in LA traffic. Relents after Irvine, and then the finally the return to San Diego filled with memories. Signs and wonders. So dense with emotional memory. I…

I’m thinking about footnotes. ((for example, this one)) Using the WordPress Footnotes Plugin Potentially useful. ((I think)) AAAFNRAA. ((Anything Anytime Anyplace For No Reason At All))
- Jun 08, 2013There could not be more news, and there could scarcely be fewer bloggers
“Nobody goes there anymore. It’s too crowded.” ((Yogi Berra)) It’s 2013 and I’m 43 years old. I’m old enough to be called middle-aged now. I’m old enough to think I know a thing or two, and be right. Perhaps it’s time to quote some Ronald Reagan, as I did on this very forum 10 years…
- Adieu Google Reader
On July 1, Google Reader does indeed close. Reader has been a valuable tool for me for a long time. In 2006, I said: Holy cow but the new Google Reader is pretty darn good. Fully worth using to read your RSS and Atom feeds. And that same year, I wrote an extended piece that…
- Immersion Network
If you have any interest in what metadata means, please give a read to Ethan Zuckerman’s piece Me and my metadata – thoughts on online surveillance. It gives context to what it means when security agencies are collecting metadata. Everywhere we go in this modern age, we’re leaving digital trails. Off the top of my…

- Aug 06, 2013Lumatic Shut Down, Fast
Following up on The Failures of the iOS6 Maps Application in which I hoped that Lumatic would be able to provide maps with transit to San Diego. Well, they did, for a while. I used it several times. Then, 2 days ago, they shut down, immediately. Here’s the email: from: The City Maps iPhone app…
- Vat Stuff: Real.
From Neuromancer: Molly and Armitage ate in silence, while Case sawed shakily at his steak, reducing it to uneaten bite-sized fragments, which he pushed around in the rich sauce, finally abandoning the whole thing. “Jesus,” Molly said, her own plate empty, “gimme that. You know what this costs?” She took his plate. “They gotta raise…
- Draw Something maxes out at 999.
I get so bummed out that OMGPOP Zynga Draw Something tops out at 999. Apparently it used to top out at 99. This is at least better, because so few people are going to play a thousand rounds of Draw Something with another person, but still. It’s a bummer. Leah and I really like it.

My good, good friend Chris reminded me in email today of the incident in about 1986 or 87 where we had gotten E-Z-OUT burger and were parked in the Clairemont DMV parking lot. It was late at night, I’m not sure how late. But SDPD came by and basically detained us… Chris’s memory is: (Officer:…
