Anger Management Classes

Like the yoga and meditation classes before them, the anger management sessions weren’t successful either. “Honest to god,” thought Clive, “if he was asked ‘why the long face, dude?’ one more time, he was going to slug someone.”

Day 6

Ok, I don’t know if anybody here is familiar with geocaching, but the cliffnotes version of the game is:  People hide things, post the coordinates online, then other people find them.  Essentially, it’s using a multi-billion dollar military satellite system

Bananas 7/29

Every day I am going to throw an object up in the air ten times. I am going to film myself doing it and select ten frames where the object is covering my face and make an animated gif.

Day 5

My mother has been a major influence in my making.  She woke up in the middle of the night after dreaming these bags up.  She makes them out of denim, cloth, all reclaimed and recycled.  She sells them at shows

Day 7: spiral grid?

OK, Processing is not as elegant as Context Free (I’m using the matrix stack and it’s kind of ugly). But the results are coming out more accurate in terms of overlapping items — or lack thereof! Imagine the green grid
