Today was Maximo’s first sick day from pre-school.  My little rock-star played guitar and wrote this f***ing awesome song for me.

Doesn’t get much better than this…


Blast From El Past

Back when I was a pup-ette, fuckin’ shit up at TESC (The Evergreen State College) in good ol’ Olympia, WA (yes, I am aware that “Hole” has a song about this… I like Rancid’s better, but I digress), I made a few films.  One of them got picked up by Frameline, the pre-eminent distributor of LGBT (don’t you just LOVE acronyms??? that’s: Lesbian/Gay/Bi/Transgender) media, and also the good folks behind 35 years of the SF Gay & Lezzie Film Fest.  My little animated film “Adam” toured the world on the film fest circuit and still gets the occasional booking or school-library purchase.  Now, 15 years later, thanks to the glory of video streaming on the webs, and Frameline’s new “Voices” program, “Adam” is available for your online viewing pleasure, and for me to share with all of my new pals.

Happy Birthday, Dad

We’ve come a long way, you and I.  Thank you for being a wonderful loving Father (and Grampa), a model of what a good man can be, a rowdy crack-up of a friend, a free-spirited follower of dreams, and my biggest fan since day one.  I adore you, I worship you, I love you, and I am who I am because of you and all the gifts you have given me from your heart and soul.

Happy 60th Dad!  Now let the wild rumpus start!

Late night strumming on my uke, my latest daily obsession…  Still working on this song, but here is a snapshot of my progress.  The song is by Fleming & John, and the chords for the uke are compliments of Joyce in New Zealand – (gracias!).

Banana-Berry Buttermilk Pancakes

Because honestly, who wants to leave the house on Sunday morning?

Pancakes for 3 (mas o menos)

1/4 c white flour

1/4 c wheat flour

1/4 c amaranth flour

1 T sugar + 2 packets stevia

1 t baking soda

1t cinnamon

1/2 t baking powder

1/2 t salt

1/2 c buttermilk

1/4 c whole milk

1 egg

1 mashed ripe banana

1/2 c chopped berries

1 T melted butter or coconut oil

Sift flours (you can also use all white, or half white/half wheat, or whatever other modern super-food gluten-free hippy flour suits your family’s needs), mix with baking powder & soda, salt, and cinnamon.  Beat in milk, buttermilk, and egg.  Add banana, berries, and melted butter or oil.  Fry ’em up and serve with coconut oil (to spread on top in place of butter) and warm maple syrup.  Um, yeah.

recipe inspired by and adapted from Shiny Happy People, by Neil Roake
