A Few Things I'm Currently Inspired By:

The poem, Beauty, by B.H. Fairchild

The book, The World Without Us, by Alan Weisman

Cory Branan's entire catalogue

Essence, by Lucinda Williams

Leonard Cohen (These days it's Live In London)

Albrecht Durer's woodcuts

The paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder

Moments when no time was taken to consider what others might think

The Avett Brothers (Especially when produced like Petty's Wildflowers)


Conan O'Brian (hard work, kindness)

T-Bone Burnett

Scientists that take the time to appreciate and understand art

Artists who trouble themselves with some science

Those that do it when it's out of fashion

Springsteen: Darkness At The Edge Of Town

Long drives over mountains and across bridges to get home from the show

The drawings by Kai Althoff on the top floor of SFMOMA

Anxiety and the pot from which it boils over
