  • Website Rework

  • My end of 2022

    spent some time offline for the last few months. Or at least much time as you can offline nowadays, kept my head focused on my job. The situation there seemed to be in a state of flux and I wanted to do what I could to salvage it.

  • Updating and cleaning up

    It’s been a while since I really took a good look at this website, and it shows. I’ve been so focused on the current job that a lot of the creative focus I had for this site went by the wayside, along with my creative drive as a whole. I’m right now in the process […]

  • The return of this blog

    2019 has been an odd time for me so far. I planned to bring this website back in tandem with projects and content I had been working on, but life has a way to throw such plans sideways (and then some). My previous employer closed suddenly last February as the owner of the nonprofit passed […]

  • Thermal Selfie

    I haven’t written much in a while. Life gets the best of me, and work has been such a giant part of my life that I neglect to write. Or do anything but work related stuff. I hate that. I need to change that. I’m working on some more longform stuff, but before I go, […]

  • dj orta dot com.

    I’ve been holding off on launching my own personal website for a few years now. And when I mean launch, actually launch and use the fricking thing. I had installed WordPress on it a millennia ago, importing everything over from my livejournal upon it. I started double posting things on both livejournal and WordPress at […]

  • Got to see Conan

    I got to see Conan. I haven’t been to a live taping a show for a long time now. I wrack my mind right now trying to come up with great examples of where I’ve been at, but the last place I remember is seeing American Gladiator at the tail end of the show’s lifespan […]

  • Taylor’s view

    Took this one using the panorama view on my iPhone 4S. Probably the best one I’ve taken yet. Done on one of my monthly visits with Taylor.    

  • Fruits of Kickstarter

    I had a small spark of Kickstarter addiction last year. I’ve been able to temper that addiction a bit with the new year, but at least I get to enjoy the first fruits of that limited shopping spree. On the very same day, I received two packages, each one containing a webcomics kickstarter reward. I […]

  • Late Night Chinatown

    “Hey, are you busy tonight?”. Those are the words I got from Primo. No warning, just a question. It was already close to about 9 o’clock at night on a weekday when he called me with that query. However, I knew exactly what it meant. Having Primo calling you for no reason late at night […]
