The fine folks over at (which have a GREAT gallery of cartoons/comics (File Under: Waste Your Bosses Time While On The Clock!)), sent me this book to check out and/or review- which I will do in an upcoming d.i.y. edition of “Tiny Yellow House”- (alongside several other indie- very cool- books that have been sent this way).

Anyway, all in all, the book is composed of twenty submitted stories, all pretty inspiring (and from ALL walks of life), on how less can mean so much more- which certainly pertains to most of our obsessions with tiny housing, beating the mortgage system, and goin’ it alone/d.i.y.’n.

 Hey, ‘coinin’ a new phrase here “D.I.Y.’n or Dyin’ “- it’d make a cool bumper sticker!

Ahem….anyway, I couldn’t so much identify with one couple who “downsized” from LA to Kentucky to a custom built 5000+ square foot home, but in their case, it was a tale of leaving a less hectic life- so even such outpourings offered some entertaining perspective and advice.

All in all, its very cool, well-written and organized, book- I thoroughly enjoyed it- and will yack a little more about it soon- on video…. Thanks again to Carol Holst and crew….

As for my book- the NPR interview on it (and my “Tiny Yellow House” TV series) apparently will air this Sunday. When I find out the show/time, it’ll be posted here.


RANDOMLY DIGGIN’: The idea behind the “Local H” 6 Angry Records Tour. Genious. These guys have been doin’ their thing since the early 90s I believe, and I own several of their garage-rock, punk infused records (had them LIVE on my radio show (fully plugged in!) on 104.1 WBCN/CBS once too), which I STILL listen to. Anyhow, with their current tour, they’ll allow a fan in the crowd to pick one of their six main albums out of a hat- and whatever album chosen will be that night’s show- from front to back! Ballsy, and clever.
