Charles Bukowski | Acrylics on canvas | 100x140cm


“I’ve never been lonely. I’ve been in a room — I’ve felt suicidal. I’ve been depressed. I’ve felt awful — awful beyond all — but I never felt that one other person could enter that room and cure what was bothering me…or that any number of people could enter that room. In other words, loneliness is something I’ve never been bothered with because I’ve always had this terrible itch for solitude. It’s being at a party, or at a stadium full of people cheering for something, that I might feel loneliness. I’ll quote Ibsen, “The strongest men are the most alone.” I’ve never thought, “Well, some beautiful blonde will come in here and give me a fuck-job, rub my balls, and I’ll feel good.” No, that won’t help. You know the typical crowd, “Wow, it’s Friday night, what are you going to do? Just sit there?” Well, yeah. Because there’s nothing out there. It’s stupidity. Stupid people mingling with stupid people. Let them stupidify themselves. I’ve never been bothered with the need to rush out into the night. I hid in bars, because I didn’t want to hide in factories. That’s all. Sorry for all the millions, but I’ve never been lonely. I like myself. I’m the best form of entertainment I have. Let’s drink more wine!”

The Wallet Ninja

It seems like the only thing you can’t do with this little helper.. is paying!

BUT aside from this it offers so much more functionality than a credit card. It has the same size as a credit card, so you can easily put it inside your wallet. There’s six Hex wrenches, a can opener, fruit peeler, bottle opener, ruler (standard & metric), letter opener, box opener, phone stand, and eyeglasses, Philips and flathead screwdrivers. It’s made from 4x heat treated steel, and comes with a lifetime guarantee to never rust, bend, dull, or fold up like Circuit City.

This is the demo for the Big Donut training video song from the most recent episode of Steven Universe, “Joking Victim”.  Lyrics by me and Paul Villeco.  Music by Jeff Liu, Rebecca Sugar and me.

Now this just the first part of the song.  The other verses were separated out so that we could transition between them and make it seem like Steven had been watching the video forever.  But the bonus of this demo is you get to hear me get really goofy at the end.

In the actual episode, Mr. Smiley (played by Sinbad) sings this tune.  It was one of the highlights of my life to get in the booth and nervously ask a legendary comedian to sing a jingle I wrote about donuts.  But he did it and it was great!

Something else is hurting you - that’s why you need pot or whiskey, or screaming music turned so fucking loud you can’t think.

While working on Buk…

I was naturally a loner, content just to live with a woman, eat with her, sleep with her, walk down the street with her. I didn’t want conversation, or to go anywhere except the racetrack or the boxing matches. I didn’t understand t.v. I felt foolish paying money to go into a movie theatre and sit with other people to share their emotions. Parties sickened me. I hated the game-playing, the dirty play, the flirting, the amateur drunks, the bores.”

He called it quits fourteen hours and twenty eight minutes ago. You didn’t think it would take you so long, but not this quickly. You spend a fifteen-hour work wage on one bottle of whiskey. They say this would be enough to whisk your brain into a thick, grey slop for the next fourteen hours and twenty eight minutes you try to get over him. You felt good being with him, what made you think feeling bad now that he’s gone is what you deserve?



1 cans of large refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
3 cups of vegetable oil for frying
¼ cup alcohol (we used Honey Bourbon Whiskey and Rum Chata)


Heat oil until 350 degrees
Lay out biscuits on a cutting board and cut a hole in the middle of
each biscuit.
When oil is hot, gently add the raw biscuits to the hot oil. When
browned (about 1 minute) flip to the other side and cook until browned
(another minute or so).
Remove doughnut from the oil and rest on a paper towel to drain.
(about 30 seconds).
Using a pastry brush, brush each hot doughnut with the Honey Bourbon Whiskey.
Optional: spoon on boozy doughnut glaze
Optional: dip in a boozy chocolate Ganache dipping sauce

Directions for Making the Boozy Doughnut Glaze
2 cups of powdered sugar
4-6 tbsp alcohol (recommended: bourbon, rum, rumchata)

1. In a bowl, add 2 cups of powdered sugar and add 3 tbsps of alcohol
and stir. You want the mixture to be thick enough so that it doesn’t
slide off of the doughnut. Add more alcohol is needed for desired

2. Spoon glaze over doughnuts and enjoy!

Directions for Making the Boozy Chocolate Dipping Sauce
2/3 cup of heavy cream
¼ cup of alcohol (bourbon, rum, Kahlua, Rum Chata are good)
1 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips

Bring heavy cream to a near boil.
Remove cream from heat and pour into a bowl.
Gently stir in the chocolate until melted.
Add the alcohol, stir until combined.
Dip your favorite treats!
