I'm a regular work-a-day kind of guy and I've played cards in Tacoma since before my age hit double digits. So, last night I got to thinking about what kind of pictorial playing cards would an average Tacoman really want, but couldn't get. Religious symbols? American Heroes? Entertainers? I told myself to slow down, and think it through. Consider the most crucial motif of all time. Then it hit me: Justice.

Images of a destitute Seattle embroiled in crime, lawlessness, and apathy. Oh wait- that's already happening.

PLAYING CARD PRODUCTION NOTES: The ever popular playing card theme adapted by a local magician and a local tattoo artist. In each case, the illustrations were provided to me for print production. (1) The magician card measures 8 5/8" x 3 5/8" open and flat; and when accordian folded closed it measures 2 7/8" x 3 5/8". Two colors of ink on the front and one color on the back, lithographed on imitation parchment 80# cover. (2) The tattoo artist card measures 2 3/4" x 4". Two colors of ink on the front and one color on the back, lithographed on bright white 120# uncoated cover. Katie drew this self portrait and provided it to me in October, 1995. In 1996 she established House of Tattoo! in Tacoma's 6th Avenue business district. Her playing card theme was replaced, and by the year 2000, three different themed hand illustrated cards were produced in my shop to meet her custom specifications regarding color and paper.

This is my real-time novel, "Idealism in Tacoma," which will attempt to sort out the virtual new order I discovered in local blogs and in local 'hoods. I welcome you to join me as I press on in search of answers to the ongoing question: "Is it new?"

NEW! for 2011:
"QUANTUM FOAM," the second real-time novel by Mofo from the Hood, is happening now!

"For whatever mysterious reason, I must act beyond the role of spectator. Something beyond a portable history must be explored.

Therefore in order for me to define the concepts and categories of realities beyond the realm of my real-time novel "Idealism in Tacoma," a wholly other discourse must take form.

Ladies and whatever, let us go forth into the unknown dimension of imagination. I hereby offer you my all new materialist inspired "out of nothing" real-time novel: 'QUANTUM FOAM'."

Also For Your Enjoyment:
"The Mofo News Network" aka MNN is one of the world's most trusted sources of news and entertainment--MFTH, Founder*

"Sunday Scriber" series. 36 episodes from May 2008 to July 2011. Perpetual status. A practical look at why survival and freedom depends on knowing what is good, acceptable, and perfect.
*MFTH was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington USA. As a lifelong resident, uninspired by money, power, or fame, he eventually resorted to reading internet blogs, sometimes at the public library. In May, 2008, during the Great Recession, he started "Mofo from the Hood's Blog" on, because it was free. If this blog ever helps him to attain money, power, and fame, he will probably stay in Tacoma.
