song of today

because if you think a 'song of the day' situation is underway, you're sadly mistaken.
camera obscura forrests & sands

fancy claps

dirty martinis with blue cheese stuffed olives, bev les, bev les throwing up hairballs, the abbey, my puffino, my bitz, dirrty dancing, gay bars, pop stars, vege burgers, bloody marys, movies on demand, sex and the city on dvd, too many people in one bed, mild hangovers, and late lunches in la la land. oh, and professional black and white medium format film that makes the skin smooth and the beautiful gorgeous.

una settimana

one week to go, then these blurs and streaks of lights will focus into the shape of new york city.

little sister's eyes so wide, must have been the size of the city moon tonight. once in a while you've got to burn down your house keep the dreamin' alive.

& i know you have a heavy heart

been looking through craigslist "missed connections" quite often lately. i find them sad and romantic at the same time.
sad: is a post on craigslist the way our generation tries to reach out to one another?
romantic: can you imagine if you did stumble upon a post that was describing you? or is that really just another tally for the sad count?
i'm not sure, but either way i find them alluring and intriguing.

currently revisiting department of eagles in ear park album. ("balmy night" being another track of interest)

hello lover

look at you, my new handmade sketchbook. you are quite beautiful if i do say so myself. composed of tracing paper that randomly interrupts the bristol paper (thick so that the ink doesn't bleed through). you're vibrant red and yellow cover reminds me of florence, italy, the place in which i acquired you. and the paper that lines the covers, that is a mauve-pink puke color, clashes just right (in my opinion). now all there is to do is draw.
and another, piccolo version for someone lucky.

even though it's not even september yet, my summer is coming to a close. just a little over a week and i will be in NYC and i will be doing the opposite of lazy summer day activities, as portrayed here; the beach, scooter rides and walks through the backwoods, poolside activities, ocean views, and mimosas on the patio.

le ragazze

all the cool girls; karen, emily, alison, and lykke.

bowl cut/mullet inspiration

hard to be soft, tough to be tender

all their videos have a similar aesthetic, and they're all fucking rad

she's got the moves
(this video thing was freakishly easy, so pardon my excessiveness right this second, i just had to get it out of my system.)

they're gonna eat me alive

the countdown has commenced. grizzly bear two weeks
(one day i swear i will learn how to put music and videos on this damn blog. but for now, hype machine will have to suffice)

i just can't handle it

new radiohead song on the loose.
download here: these are my twisted words
it feels like this to me
there is this one as well, worth a listen, or seven.
harry patch (in memory of)
and this one to that one, if that makes any sense at all.

a plausible connection?

i was going through old photographs (okay, i was being reminiscent) and stumbled upon this one i took in göteborg, sweden. i don't remember what building it is, if anything of vast importance, it's probably just an office building.
however, it reminded me of these Peter Doig works:
The Architect's Home In The Ravine
Concrete Cabin II

a favorite

"for me, making art, finding clarity through words, and loving people and being good to people and helping people when i can- those are things worth devoting yourself to." -conor oberst
[i wonder, what qualifies a statement as being quotable? does it matter who says it? can a quote come from everyday conversation? i'd like to think some of the things i say could be meaningful and memorable enough to someone else, that they make an effort to remember it]

i think this was the only photo taken of my paintings installed together, such a naughty art student. but, it will have to do.
having the urge to do something creative; make a new sketchbook? take photos? alter some old clothing?
make sketchbook.

is there a cure for the summertime blues?

boat race
this coast could be either
a tiberon sunset
i don't have a cure. but i guess my treatment lies within nostalgic photos, drinking good wine and beer, taking coastal drives with the music at max. volume so that you can't even hear your own singing, sleeping half naked, and dreaming of autumn.
