If you visit Trinity College Dublin you can pay €9 (about $13.50 U.S.) to see the original Book of Kells. It’s said to be one of the oldest illuminated manuscripts in existence, and perhaps the most beautiful. I mean to visit Trinity College Dublin ASAP. The First Folio of Shakespeare, printed in 1623 not long [...]

Garage Week: Pair

Garage Week: Pair

Our neighbors had to tear down an old garage and build a new one. That old thing was gross. But when you’ve got a pretty old garage like this, it’s more in keeping with Pasadena’s preservation mindset to keep it. That mindset is one reason why people come here, and stay. I don’t know what [...]

Garage Week, Tidy

Garage Week, Tidy

What do you think of this one? I like the neatness, and the color coordination. And the doors–there must be a history, a name for these doors. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Garage Week, the Gentry

Garage Week, the Gentry

A better photo could be made of this fabulous garage, but I was so afraid I’d be taken for a prowler that I snapped what I could get. I like this one. You could keep daddy’s Bentley in there, and still have room for the horses! Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Garage Week: Fixed

Garage Week: Fixed

I used to love this one. I still do. I would have kept the old doors. It could be they tried to and it wasn’t possible. It’s still a great garage. Plus, the house is a beauty. Read the Full Story at Pasadena Daily Photo

Garage Week

The spring event you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! It’s Garage Week on Pasadena Daily Photo! Let’s celebrate! I would categorize this garage as “pretty.” Pasadena has many pretty garages. Either that or I have strange taste. Or both! I have a load* of garage pictures, so let’s explore a week of garages: [...]

Bookmarks: Slumming

Dive sent me a photo of the Divebrary. Looks like my book takes its position slumming on the shelf with Voltaire, Spenser and Shakespeare. Those are pretty books, aren’t they? They’re not old–not antique, anyway. They’re specially-made sets for modern collectors. I have a collection of Arden Shakespeare paperbacks, but it’s not the same thing. [...]

Primavera is Coming!

Primavera is Coming!

I’m letting you know early so you won’t plan anything else for March 30th. I promise, this time I will not bring a dried-up, store-bought pie. I might bring a store-bought pie, but if I do it will be a nice one. All the cool people will be there. You’ll fit right in. Read the [...]

Afternoon Light in Studio D

Afternoon Light in Studio D

Boz got to go with me to Hollywood today. He doesn’t much like voice-overs, but he gets a lot of attention at the studio so he tolerates “going to work.” Afternoon light in studio D is only one of the many pleasures of my weekly visit to Bell Sound Studios. There’s also an espresso maker, [...]
