Welcome

I work on a lot of projects. Generally I have too many things going on at once to make much progress in anything. I need to simplify my life, but that's just another project. I'm a crappy writer, a pisspoor puppeteer, a computer nerd, an investor, and a dabbler in internet technologies. I have published a book of my writing which you can buy here: Jackass Letters: Archive Volume 1 or you can just visit the website: Jackass Letters.

I spend too much time on Facebook and reddit and am sometimes found on Metafilter as well. You can follow me on twitter @cjorgensen or @jackassletters.

I like to write, and I wish I spent more time doing so. Pretty much my only real daily outlet for this is Facebook, but I plan to minimize my footprint there and start taking control of my own content again. I will still be on Facebook, but I plan to engage in POSSE Publish (on your) Own Site, Syndicate Elsewhere. This site is my first step.

Puppetry

I am going to try to maintain a list of puppetry links on pinboard. If you have a link you think you should have included, hit me up! A caricature of myself and my puppets Hoté and Spank by Kenny Durkin

My Sites

I have a lot of domains. I plan to pare them down a bit soon. Some of these sites are no longer even live or hosting content.

Hobbies

  • Web stuff: I love HTML and CSS, but I am bored with the former and suck at the latter. I love playing around with content management systems and I currently use many. I am a dabbler in ExpressionEngine, barely know Drupal, Statamic, and Grav. I've used several that have died. I'm still looking for the best.
  • Puppets & Puppetry: I have maybe a dozen professional puppets and twice that for off-the-shelf. I have a handful of original characters.
  • Apple: I love their tech. Just assume I am running the current everything. I have the hardware and the software. iPads, iPhone, laptop, desktop, Apple TV, wireless. I'm also an investor and own over 200 shares.
  • Audio and Video: I would like to get better at this stuff, but there's only so many hours in the day. I currently have a video/audio studio in my house, but I don't spend enough time in it.
  • Collecting: I collect antique cabinet cards.

I'll probably add more.
