Bob Mould SNAFU

Well I guess I was a little excited when I bought the Bob Mould tickets. After looking for directions to get to the theater, I did a double check on the start time for the show.

New Addition to the Apartment

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2005

Well after months of trying to purchase some artwork for the apartmant it has finally happened. I have been looking into purchasing artwork from either Dave McKean (read Pete’s discreption of Mirror Mask) or Ralph Steadman. Ralph came through with a nice print titled King and Queen. It is now being shipped from England, via global shopping through ebay. I’ll post apicture as soon as I figure out why I can’t upload it. You can learn more about Ralph and his artwork and writings by clicking on the link on the left.
