Step Aside, George…

…it’s the Summer of Dora.  So many amazing things are happening right now, my carpal tunnel will explode out of my hands and onto the keyboard if I try to type them all. This will be a very brief post, as I need to cross at least one Craphouse item off of my to-do list…

Flower Day Recap and a Quickie Craphouse Update

Flower Day was a blast! It rained like crazy, the temperature was five degrees less than comfortable for the clothes I was wearing, the wind kept blowing my hair into my face and the faces of those around me (couldn’t find a ponytail holder, sorry Eastern Marketers), and I’m on the tail end of a…

The Hub of Detroit: Youth Earn-A-Bike & Bike Ride

The Hub of Detroit is a fantastic organization.  They’ve evolved from their humble beginnings as Back Alley Bikes, a 2000 Detroit Summer program, to a fully-stocked bicycle shop and repair center which hosts regular events for people of all ages. They have numerous programs, including bicycle repair workshops and bicycle giveaways for youth. On May…

Bioremediation Garden Party

Bioremediation Action is holding a planting party this Friday, May 6th at the Mulberry Center at the corner of Lincoln and Selden (the actual address is 3716 Lincoln) in Detroit. They’ll be planting bioremediators around a grey water system they recently removed.  Bioremediators are plants which draw heavy metals such as lead or mercury, along…

New CH Note (FB)

This weekend will be a milestone in the Craphouse renovation (can I call it a renovation at this point, when it’s really more of a make-it-moderately-sanitary-so-we-can-at-least-move-in-ovation?) — I’m kicking the weekend off with a big ol’ mess of plaster.

Quick Update

The Craphouse Chronicles’ new blog pages will be up soon.  We’ve found some hideous house-eating fungus @ the CH and my days have been all about that for the past week or so.  I’ll update you here and on our new Facebook fan page once the new blog is up! Also: the next (and hopefully…

Mark Your Calendars

Comedy Dates April 18, 8pm @ Joey’s Comedy Club in Livonia – I’ve been invited to participate in their annual Ladies Night of Comedy. I’m sharing the stage with some of Detroit’s funniest women. May 8, 8pm @ Monte’s in Mt. Clemens – I’m MCing this show.  The truly hilarious  Bob Phillips is the feature…

Movies!

I love ’em. Who doesn’t?  I also love talking about ’em…but I’m a natural-born lazy-ass and in-depth reviews which take into account the director’s past work, actors’ growth as artists, and the entire history of cinematography and the technology behind filmmaking are not going to come from me. So I’m going to start rating movies…

The New Craphouse Site is Live

And it’s pretty damn sweet, if I say so myself. You can check it out here.  There isn’t much new content yet (although my brother had some fun questions for the FAQ page), but there is a rocking sweet Links page…scroll down for my favorite online animations, and then feel free to hop over to…

New Site, New Blog, New Jokes, New Dog

…and it’s busy, busy, busy. I’ve been writing 600-1000 words per day, but still don’t have a title for my latest work-in-progress.  I’m considering Empty Days, but that doesn’t really capture the mood of the book.  Since it’s at least somewhat influenced by Lafferty’s uproarious romp The Reefs of Earth, I’d like the title to…

Holy cow, chicken, pig, probably rat and up to 90 PPM of cockroach bits.

First, click on the picture below to check out the link.  Then, sit quietly and wait for your stomach to settle. Shhhh. When this mess is composed mainly of blended chicken scrapin’s, it goes into chicken nuggets of the bulk frozen variety (although “…McDonald’s famous McNuggets no longer do contain ‘mechanically separated poultry as defined…
