Silversun Pickups on stage with red lighting

There was some strong bisexual lighting at the Silversun Pickups concert last fall.

the theater before Moulin Rouge started. On the left, a windmill with white lights covering it. The stage curtain has a large heart in the middle and a large neon sign of 'Moulin Rouge' suspended in front of it. On the right, an elephant statue in blue lighting. Bright red lighting on the whole stage.

Moulin Rouge is one of my favorite movies and the musical was so good! I loved how they included newer (and some older) songs in the mashups to keep it fresh. Great performances all around and the set was spectacular. I highly recommend it if you get a chance to see it! Give the cast recording a listen, too.

Had a great time seeing it last weekend with Joe and Kelly.

Looking for the bright side. Gold medallion trees in bloom.

recent selfie

This is XLIII.

Ok, a minor cheat. This is from like two weeks ago, but I liked it.

I’ve been at Mommer’s for the holiday and we’ve been going through some photos. I haven’t seen some of these in 20+ years, so I thought it would be fun to share gRegor through the years:

2. In case you were wondering if I was just as cool back in high school ... yes.

This was one of my high school senior photos.

me posing next to a globe with my hand over the top of it

3. Everybody wants to (evangelize) the world.

An outtake from my senior photos that didn’t make the cut for some reason, hahaha. I was really zealous about Christian short-term mission trips back then.

4. Young Greg (I didn’t even use an -or back then) with our Pomeranian, Teddy Bear.

me as a bébé

5. I’m bébé. Mommer tells me I was enjoying blueberries.

more cookies

Cookies were made! The infamous nutmeg logs and ginger cremes.

How to make a Zombie Cash:

4. Optional but encouraged: pose with the pup.

Props to Sarah for the zombie makeup and a great Halloween party! Check out her latest post to see her performing “Ring of Fire” on autoharp!

Jimmy Eat World performing with backdrop obscured so it looks like 'My Eat World'

Saw one of my favorites last night, My Eat World.

Jimmy Eat World is always a great show, but this one was particularly fire. Great mix of Futures, Bleed American, and some songs they don't play live often, like “Blister.”

Fun times with @nori_punk

selfie wearing a mask

Having a normal Friday night. How about you?

myself in front of a graffiti mural of the word 'love' written repeatedly in cursive

Well, it’s been almost five years. Time for a new profile photo.

I’m really pleased with how this came out, particularly since it was an offhand “hey, get my picture in front of this since I'm gRegorLove” as we walked by the mural in Hillcrest.


myself giving a thumbs up with a big smile and a 'I got my Covid vaccine' sticker on my shirt

Circle circle, dot dot, I just got my (first) Covid shot.

It felt surreal when I was next in line, realizing I had been waiting a whole year for this and it was actually finally happening.

selfie where my hair was rather wavy

I kind of had Farrah hair the other day. #wavy

Oh, I also got my hairs cut about a month ago.


pink sky just after sunset reflected in the wet sand
Pink Sky, Pink Sand

My mental health has not been great lately. I’ve been feeling pretty stressed out and all over the emotional spectrum. On Saturday I decided go to the beach at sunset. I always find that soothing. I really liked the symmetry of the pink sky being reflected on the wet sand.

I finished watching The Good Place recently and loved it. They talk about one Buddhist conception of death being an ocean wave that crashes on the shore. The wave is gone, but the water is still there. I thought about that as I watched the waves and took some moments to breathe and be present.

selfie with my hair down to my eyes, clearly in need of a haircut

Wanted: haircut. Or emo bandmates?

selfie holding a sunflower over my mouth and chin

Beard is coming along nicely.

As much as I’d like to, I’m not going to any cookouts today — playing it safe due to increased Covid cases. Sarah 5 and Elliott dropped off some food and this sunflower on my doorstep, though, so that was nice.

selfie while laying on the couch with my arm behind my head

Felt cute, might quarantine later

giant robot face with text 'made in austin'

Remembering my trip to Austin in the Before Times (February).

cover of Mike McHargue's book, You're a Miracle (And a Pain in the Ass)

Really looking forward to reading Mike McHargue’s new book! I also highly recommend his podcast, Ask Science Mike, and his first book, Finding God in the Waves.

I’m on about day 11 of my quaranbeard. Not sure what I think about it yet, but I’m sticking it out for a while. How is your beard treating you?

My drawing of 'Darth ASCII'

Meet Darth ASCII.

Tonight I learned about Maxwell Joslyn’s Sith Lord Challenge. The idea is to draw your conception of a Sith Lord, name it, and submit it.

Before I had even looked at other entries, I asked, “do we have to be good at drawing?” to which he replied, “most decidedly not.” In the submission section it mentions you can text it to him, which made me joke, “can we submit ASCII Sith Lords?” And thus the seed for this idea was planted.

I enjoyed the creative challenge of picking characters that would work and am really pleased with the result. The exclamation point for the light saber jumped out right away. Then the A for the body. I first used a u for the lower face and was quite happy when it also made a ventilator. Add umlauts for eyes? Perfect.

Check out Maxwell’s page and submit your own!

This post is brought to you by the letters A, ü, j, C, and punctucation !

Card and envelope which had a smaller card inside. Smaller card reads ‘Are you a magician??? Because abraca-DAYUM’

Yo dawg, we heard you like cards so we put a card inside your card.

The small card is about 3 inches and was inside its own tiny envelope. Many thanks to Isha for these. <3

We had a good time at the second Homebrew Website Club San Diego meetup last night.

Happy New Year from my couch. I was told I look cute so figured I’d share.


New haircut, old head

Me standing in front of a small picture of @infiniteelliott

I got a picture with this “life-size” photo of @infiniteelliott at the creators meetup he organized.

He premiered his new YouTube/IGTV show, @elliottandsergio. It should be out in the next week or so. It looks like it will be really good and I’m not just saying that because I may have a small clip in it. He’s a talented creator and it’s cool to see the things he’s doing already, just barely out of high school.

Pac-Man is eating houses in Montana.

I'm told this is a canola field. Taken as I was flying in to Kalispell.

Stop and smell the jacaranda trees

neon sign reading “You’re weird, but I love you”

I would prefer “and,” but I still like the sentiment.

New haircut, who dis?

We found a Science Mike after the Gungor show last night!

These lovely people are new friends from the Liturgists Singles group. @mikemchargue and @michaelgungor host The Liturgists podcast. Michael is also in the band Gungor, as his name suggests. So members of our group from around the country have been respectfully stalking — er, “sharing breath with” — the band on this final tour. Last night was their finale show in LA. It was fantastic; a moving and spiritual experience.

close-up of myself wearing sunglasses on the beach
First beach day for me this year

Celebrated this cool lady’s birthday tonight and briefly stole her shades. Happy birthday, @starwalker5!

I was the tits for about 15 minutes tonight at a white elephant gift exchange when I got this amazing ornament. Then someone stole it from me. That’s okay, I know I’m still the tits.

Check out @ra.makes profile, which has a link to her Etsy shop so you can buy your own.

It’s been a minute. Hello and happy Christmas.

@ Hungry Horse Dam, Montana

Throwback to 2014 when I met and pet a reindeer on a leash in Seward, Alaska.

I saw Beach House this past Sunday with Sarah Walker. They performed entirely in silhouette with some gorgeous lighting.
