You might know me from San Diego. Or Los Angeles, or Ventura County, or Virginia, or the Philippinessee also. Have we worked together–in tech or in a hospital when I was a respiratory therapist? Maybe we met at a drink-and-draw or sketch party? Perhaps you read a comic of mine in a Burn All Books anthology? Or maybe you know me from the beach, which I visit often. Or a convention (was I sketchnoting? Comic-Con? XOXO pre-pandemic? Long ago at a BarCamp?) Whatever reason, welcome! There’s more here than you can read in one sitting. Here’s even more about me:
I am a programmer by trade. Here’s some of my writing about programming. Some of my work is on GitHub. This website is a work in progress and features a hand-rolled WordPress theme. I use phpStorm and VSCode for most of my work. You can read more about the background of this site at the colophon. My resume is here.
- I can never remember the name of GitPrime which is now Pluralsight Flow
- Hard Drive Cleaning: C++ Programming ’04
- Spielberg’s Films by year of release vs year set
I collect toy robots.
- New Bot Day! B2EMO is a hard working scavenger droid and a trusted part of the Andor family. And every day is a good day to quote Maarva Andor, who relied on Bee especially as she took sick. From her own eulogy: “The Empire is a disease that thrives in darkness, it is never more alive than when we asleep. It’s easy for the dead to tell you to fight, and maybe it’s true, maybe fighting is useless. Perhaps it’s too late. But I’ll tell you this, if I could do it again, I’d wake up early and be fighting those bastards from the start!”
- New Bot Day! Jet Jaguar (ジェットジャガー) is from Godzilla vs Megalon (1973). Jet is a mecha created based on a fan contest by Toho to create a new hero. Mazinger and Ultraman were popular at the time! This robot has evolved, gained sentience, and is friendly. This is the Cherry Blossom edition, a 2022 San Diego Comic Con MONDO special edition my pal Andrea scored for me. Long time no bot!
- New Bot Day! I’m out of practice but every day is a great day to begin afresh. Welcome Getter Robo 1! ゲッターロボ hails from 1974; this special pink variant vinyl is a recent brilliant creation of @maxtoyco
I make comics. One made it into a literary journal. Do you want to do an art trade or buy a Riso print of mine? I have stickers too.
- Drop it like it’s bivalve. #webcomic #gull #beach
- Literary Journal: Chiricú Journal
- I would prefer not to, aaugh! #cubecat #4thwall #webcomic #inktober #inktober2021 #thankyousparky
I love the ocean. I always have. I swim and bodysurf. #stoke
- Swimming, 2022. #stoke #swimming
- At Moonlight Beach earlier. Taken by my pal Margot visiting from NorCal.
- Bodysurfed at Del Mar with a bunch of other bodysurfers. Weird but very pleasant to be in a lineup with only other bodysurfers. So much skill on display. I’ve learned a lot; I have a lot to learn.
There’s thousands of posts here. Some were imported from blogger, some from del.icio.us, many from Instagram, some are just lists of links, some are longer reflections on life. If you’re determined to read you might start with what has been most commented upon. Here’s the the Colophon. Enjoy!
