Wholesome? Sure, it’s about time

Posted November 22nd, 2015 by Anthony

Wholesome? Yes, wholesome I was in LA for a disability art show. Fortunately I was able to fit in dinner with a longtime friend who lives down there. We were sharing all our disability news when I was surprised a moment I didn’t expect. My friend brought out a laptop to show me a 30 […]

Criperati? Works for me (in a tongue-in-cheek kinda way)

I was hanging out in the bar with a bunch of folks at SDS last June. One of the party innocently asked, “What do you guys think about the new access symbol business?” Even dead sober I couldn’t help but go on a rant. I knew I had been thinking about how I didn’t like […]

Heavy Metal & Wheelchair User

Posted November 16th, 2014 by Anthony

Got an email from Risty Byce, a wheelchair using, rock ‘n’ roll drummer at I didn’t follow popular music, and metal in particular, too closely in the early 90s. This Queensrÿche video was brand new to me when Risty sent me a recommendation. I’m not sure about the overall sentiment, it seems to me to […]

Crutches and Backpacks

Posted July 18th, 2014 by Anthony

Anthony, crutches, backpack, and sister
That’s me with my sister Paula on the grounds of Polytechnic School in Pasadena. Notice the backpack. It seems like I spent an inordinate amount of time from middle school through college figuring out how to carry things, particularly school books, while using crutches.
