Zelda Rae Katz was born late last night at 10:45 pm. She was calm, collected, and 9 lbs 7 oz. Sam did great even when we were kept in the recovery room for hours over blood pressure worries.
She’s hungry and strong!
We are recovering at Mt Sinai until Friday. Can’t wait for MAX LAZER to meet her and we hope you can meet her too!
Look at this cool little sweater Sam made for our soon-to-arrive daughter! I’m so excited to meet her!
I read this story of a pot and a spoon that get impounded as evidence and a woman’s struggle with the state to get them back – and it was wonderful. I’m printing a copy for MAXIMUM LAZER.
Pot and Spoon, a true tale of Occupy Wall Street by Jerry Goralnick and illustrated by Ruthie Rosenfeld is available for free download on their site.
Pot and Spoon tells the tale of Madeline, a young woman who brought her pot and spoon to the OWS protests and had them confiscated by the Police. As Madeline tries to get them back we learn about flaws in the system, unhelpful public employees and police over reach. Pot and Spoon, locked up in an evidence holding warehouse, have a great conversation about social structure and the types of change the Occupy movement hopes to engender.

I was talking about my favorite Lars von Trier movie recently and it put a spark in my head. See, I was playing blocks with Maximum Baby and his job is to make sure that I can’t build a tower. No two blocks shall be on top of each other!
When he gets excited and starts banging on things and knocking over the blocks and squeaking I can’t help but think of him squeaking out “CHAOS REIGNS!”
So I had to make a baby onesie.

If you want to remix the image, I got it from a post on Know Your Meme. I made an SVG from the png file they had, then cleaned it up and removed the rainbow colors in InkScape. Here’s the SVG file for your remixing pleasure!
Maxwell Lazer Katz was born this morning at 6:27 AM, 3 weeks early. He’s 6lbs 1oz of beautiful baby boy and he seems to like being out in the world, or at least be pretty relaxed about it. Sam was strong and brave – she pushed hard and well and got him out while Kelly Rae Kerwin and I helped her. She’s doing great – was even able to stand to walk in to our recovery room.
We’ll be in Mount Sinai in Room 832 for a few days then back home to learn more about this wonderful little person and find out who he’s going to become.
