Here are a few old dream comics! My dreams used to have a lot of surreal processions and festivals in them. Now my actual life has them because people in this town will do anything for a chance to say to hell with traffic let’s shuffle down the street - and I don’t ever dream at all.

Congrats to Ben Hutcho on his 40th!

The Modern Love Podcast with Titus Burgess

The Modern Love Podcast has revived yet another of my old New York Times illustrations and put it on the web. In this episode, the actor Tituss Burgess (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “30 Rock”) reads the essay “A Prince Charming for the Prom (Not Ever After, Though),” about a gay student who forgoes the prom of … Continue reading The Modern Love Podcast with Titus Burgess

Using Finder to compile PDFs

Unnecessary background info...

I recently had a computer problem which caused me to have to erase and reinstall my entire computer's OS to fix the problem. I backed everything up (well most things) but lost some of the software, as I no longer had the download codes, and to be honest I'm not sure where I even got them from in the first place. One of the pieces of software I relied heavily on, and lost, was Adobe Acrobat Pro.

I probably only used a tiny percentage of its functionality, as I only really used it to compile PDFs to take new books to the printer and create PDF ebooks. Now I didn't have it, I was starting to panic. How was I going to be able to continue printing digitally and electronically. There were a few online upload type services and I also looked into open source and some of the cheaper options; I wasn't prepared to pay for Acrobat Pro officially, it costs somewhere between $300-400. Anyway, nothing really worked the way I expected, surely there's software out there, but I couldn't find it.

I then read about Finder on the Mac being able to create PDFs. Excellent I thought, but when I tried it it only saved on page into the PDF and not every page in the booklet. I almost gave up when I decided to dig a little further to see if I was doing it right, turns out there is a little trick...

How to create a PDF collection for ebooks and print files using Finder on the Mac

  1. In a Finder window highlight/select all the files you wish to include (use the Shift key or Command key for multiple sections)
  2. Control click (right click) 'Open With' choose the defualt which should be Preview
  3. All the filkes open in a Preview window, you should see all the individual pages as thumbnails on the left side (if not go 'View, Thumbnails')
  4. Command A or highlight all to select
  5. Now choose 'Print' and not export as PDF (as you would expect)
  6. Then 'Save as PDF'...Et Voila!

You can read the comic online here. I will be offering an updated PDF version soon.

David E. Lasky, 1938-2016

My father passed away last month, after battling various health issues. It's still hard to accept that he's gone. He was a great parent, and as I get older I realize more and more how lucky I was to have him.

His death notice appeared in the Sacramento Bee yesterday (where he'd retired), and is in the Washington Post today (where he spent most of his professional life). It was written by his wife Mary, with input from my brother Jason and I.

David E. Lasky died of complications of COPD on July 14, 2016, in Woodland, California. He was 78. He leaves behind his wife, Mary Symmes; sons David (LeeAnn) and Jason (April) Lasky and their mother Barbara Lasky; granddaughter Mollie; stepson Andrew Telford; brother Steve, and sisters Jeri and Judy.

Dave was born in New York City and moved with his mother to California during WWII. He served in the U.S. Army in Germany from 1955 to 1958. He retired from his long career in the U.S. Department of Commerce as the director of the Economic Development Administration. He was a man of notable intelligence, kindness, and charm, and a lifelong champion of civil rights and feminism. Dave prided himself on finishing the daily New York Times crossword puzzle in ink, almost always without cheating. He will be sorely missed by his family and many friends.

There will be no services. Donations in his name may be made to any legitimate veterans' assistance organization.
