About this site:
In 1993, I spent the year writing in a blank datebook from 1954. Now, in 2010, I'm posting each page on the web and writing about it. You may want to start at the beginning.

1954: January 28-29

The great thing about public journals, sketchbooks and back-pocket notepads is they become a repository for all sorts of the random thoughts, notes and doodles that fill up daily life. The text on this page doesn't really have any rhyme or reason, and the sketching isn't planned or considered. It's clearly a day of unfinished thoughts. And that's OK, they're useful, too.

"Salut copins!" means "Hello, friends!" by the way.

Ah, more REM quotes, this time written by a friend -- Daneka, I believe.

Automatic for the People sold 10 million copies, don't forget. I bought the deluxe limited edition, which came in a balsa wood box containing photos and lyrics on translucent vellum, and an all-yellow CD (that was pretty much the exact color of's header when I first discovered it).

Judging from the shape of the label on that bottle drawing, I'm going to guess it was a Smirnoff Ice -- in which case it certainly wasn't mine.

The hand outline here is mine; note the knobby knuckles.
