Temporary Invalid once appeared in photos like this.
This past weekend I headed up to Hamburg in order to visit my favorite Temporary Invalid – ideal timing because he was mobile enough to get around, but not mobile enough to escape me.
Given that I’d never actually been to Hamburg’s biggest small attraction, the [...]
Saturday, before Book of Mormon, I headed over toward Brick Lane for the Alternative London tour – which is, basically, a tour of Brick Lane focusing on street art and graffiti. The tour is done on a donation basis – at the end of the tour you tip what you think the tour was worth.
I realize, as I write this, that I am not about to post something that many of my Berlin friends will like, but I feel like saying it anyway.
But first — the East Side Gallery, a 1.3 kilometer long piece of the Berlin wall, is going to have a 22 meter piece taken out [...]
Strive On – The control of nature is won, not given.
As I noted at the beginning of February, my entry to the Wyoming Monologues was accepted and will be performed on March 8th at 9pm following a performance of the Vagina Monologues.

My favorite touch is the framed twig on the wall behind the “girl”.
Saturday afternoon, after I left the warm embrace of Filter, I headed north to visit my ex-expat friends who used to live in Berlin.
As a guest I try to be easy going and non-demanding, going along with whatever my hosts suggest, and so I found myself at Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden, an absolutely [...]
Last Thursday was IDAHO – The International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
It was also the day that my American Friend arrived, and so I gave him a walking tour of Berlin, covering all the most important spots — and as we walked past the American Embassy, we spotted the Rainbow-Pride Flag Toga [...]
