Deer Bear Wolf Weekly »

Follow Deer Bear Wolf, guys. Davy is a cool dude, doing cool stuff in this cool city of ours. Also, come to the magazine launch party on May 13 and watch me do my first reading or throw up on stage. Either/or. Place your bets now! 

P.S. I also talked to artist Craig Drennen this week about humanity’s demise, curating a new group show and the death of the sun. 

It’s been a really good week in freelance writing over here. 
Hooray!

In between snow storms and traveling and working and writing and well, life, I finallyput together my travel blog, Pies + Travel.
I’m really proud of the layout and how it came out. I spent so much time trying to make it perfect and now I’m spending time writing posts on previous trips, creating a mini-Atlanta guide and sharing pie recipes.

The Day We Lost Atlanta »

What happened in Atlanta this week is not a matter of Southerners blindsided by unpredictable weather. More than any event I’ve witnessed in two decades of living in and writing about this city, this snowstorm underscores the horrible history of suburban sprawl in the United States and the bad political decisions that drive it. It tells us something not just about what’s wrong with one city in America today but what can happen when disaster strikes many places across the country. As with famines in foreign lands, it’s important to understand: It’s not an act of nature or God—this fiasco is manmade from start to finish. But to truly get what’s wrong with Atlanta today, you have to look at these four factors, decades in the making.

Q & A with artist Molly Rose Freeman »

With geometric forms and bright colors, artist Molly Rose Freemantransforms spaces and walls in cities including Asheville, San Francisco, Charleston, Miami and, of course, Atlanta. A former Living Walls artist, Freeman has been slowly leaving her mark in corners of our city, most recently in Cabbagetown through a collaboration with Travis Smith. Freeman’s art exudes happiness, strength and liveliness with its bold, neon color and free-hand designs that act as much as pieces of art as they do unique backdrops eliciting their own feel within their surrounding environment. A child from the South, she transitioned from creative writing to art after her college graduation and eventually landed in ATL, where she has found her home. With the ability to envision works on such a grand scale, she makes the city a bit more colorful—one interconnected triangle at a time.

Oh hey I wrote this and Molly is the best. She has so much talent and every time I pass her mural in the mornings, on my way to work, I smile so big. She’s pretty much the coolest.

Atlanta BeltLine Gets Financial Boost »

WABE, ATL’s local NPR station, interviewed me this morning about art along the BeltLine and what I think about the new $18 million (!!) grant from the federal government. 

So weird/awesome/still pinching myself.
