I was recently hired to help re-brand and launch this exciting start up. I encourage you to check them out at and on twitter at @atpay

We Are The Many

A friend just shared this fantastic folk-rebellion song on facebook. I am shocked it has so few views. This is a really nicely put together piece that encapsulates a number of my personal frustrations with the current state of the Union. Please enjoy and share! *Update >> Makana played this at the APEC dinner in […]

Save Our Democracy! Don’t buy Koch Industries’ products.

Please avoid buying Koch Industries products. American Democracy needs your vote today, tomorrow, and every time you encounter a Koch brand. Choose any other brand, and keep boycotting this Plutocracy-fueling schlock until these jokers learn to keep their greedy hands off of working people’s throats:   Don’t buy Koch Industry Gasoline:   Chevron Union Union […]

…a reminder from the ego-police that maybe I’m not as tough as I think, and perhaps not every bike ride is a good idea. I am having surgery today, and I’ll be slowed down for a few months of recovery. Thanks to all for your ongoing support.

Hardwired, savage “wake the fuck up” moments chase fear for the loss of my life, mobility, status, comfort, personal health, and the health of my loved ones. Today I am moved. Is each year another precarious […]

tabitha rests

My cat died today and I am devastated.  Before meeting Tabitha 6 years ago I really didn’t care for cats at all. I’ve just always been a dog person. When my dog first met her, he tried to bite her head off (literally). In the following years, she’s won us both over such that today, […]

Burning Bridges

Posted on Apr 9, 2009 in Life | No Comments

It’s been quite the year. My mind is ripe with ideas, but my hands are raw from the labor. Soon there will be time to soothe wounds healing and progress made. Arrest the gremlin that sits on your shoulder and tells you to eat chips and do little.
