  • Scott Galloway with… relationship advice?

    I really really enjoy pundit Scott Galloway (@profgalloway) and his newsletter today he ¬†shared this critical relationship advice. It tracks with what I’ve learned, for myself through mistakes, through therapists, and through personal reading. It’s sharp, as all his writing typically is: Don’t keep score. It’s human nature to inflate your own contribution to the…

  • Fat Tuesday, Gird Loins, Wabi-sabi

    Yo. So Mass today was good. The homily was about Grace. Grace as in that “hand of God,” possibly last seen inspiring Jules Winfield in Pulp Fiction. Or maybe dropping down and bopping me on the head to go to Mass on the morning after Leah announced that we should be separated. I was comforted….

  • Bruce Sterling Got Married

    There’s not much on the internets about the marriage of my hero, Bruce Sterling, author, blogger, design instructor, and speaker to one Jasmina Tesanovic. This is a peculiar bit of news I first heard word of on boingboing and confirmed the next day on his own blog. I read his blog, and his Viridian list,…

  • Grades

    Last week was busy and rough. I’ve been quiet and busy, and successful and unsuccessful. I spent my entire Saturday the Saturday before last working on a take-home test for my Statistics Class. On Dr T’s Math Pages you can see the results. I got a 92 for my efforts. I’d have preferred a 100,…

  • Anniversary

    Happy 3rd Birthday ArtLung Blog It was 3 years ago today that I started blogging. Since then I’ve been blogging about all and sundry: including: work; play; religion; politics; the weather; changing jobs; marital separation; divorce; new love with Leah; … Everything. My life, edited for public consumption and private introspection. And more to come….

  • Current Important News: VideoChat! Divorce! Life! Onward!

    I got an iSight today. Talked to my sister and boss and even Dori Smith and Mathowie – it all worked well. Except my Dad and Mom’s connection is messed up somehow. We’ll figure that out. Just checked the mail, and I received my “NOTICE OF ENTRY OF JUDGEMENT” from the Superior Court of California,…

  • Life is Real

    So. Last year the sh*t hit the fan in my life. My wife left me and everything turned inside-out and backwards and it all hurt like hell. (Everything is healing nicely, thank you) So when all that happened last year, something interesting happened. I kept blogging. I said: I’m at a loss right now as…

  • A Year Like No Other

    So it’s been a year since the separation began that shook my worldview to its foundations. I was not what I thought. Everything changed. My marriage collapsed. In that time I’ve lost 85 pounds. I’ve fallen in and out of love. I’ve discovered I am weaker than I thought I was. I’ve discovered I’m stronger…

  • Religion

    Yesterday my girlfriend and I spoke at length on the subject of religion. I came to realizations about how I think and what I am about. I am not throwing any of this in any faces. This is what I feel, and what I believe for myself in how to live my life. She is…

  • Reader Feedback; What’s Up

    Response to my would-be personal ad has been great, and critical. My Mom says I should be careful what I wish for. She also points out that Jennifer may meet the criteria I set as well. It’s interesting, last Friday I was talking with my Uncle and said that I thought Jenny and I would…

  • Should You Be Worried About Joe? Big Update

    The $50,000 question these days I find myself asking myself is this. Am I going to be okay? Do things really work themselves out? Does time heal all wounds? Will Batman escape the clutches of the nefarious Dr. Freeze? I am confronted more and more with my own optimism. It’s been more than 3 months…

  • Funkburger

    Just feeling a little bit funky now. Not exactly sad. Not exactly happy. Not exactly lonely. But a little funkburger. I think the time change from Hawaii has caught up with me. Also, there is lots of stuff happening with family (new skin issues for my Grandfather, nothing major, my Aunt just got in a…
