Back in Black

Good heavens I've been away for a little while haven't I? Well, for a quick update - I've moved to a different room in the house I have been living in (thank you brother) and I've painted three of my four walls black. Fantastic move I feel. I've never lived in a room with shiny black walls, but so far, I love it.

I've been on a blog or two recently and I've been toiling away on some projects. I will update on those more when I get the time, but for right now all you'll get to hear about is how I'm seasonably depressed and my black walls and daydreams of summer are my pills for now.

Much love.

Hair Cut.

Oh man, it's been awhile since my last cut ( at least for me ) and it feels great to have a new one. I go to a local Great Clips and I actually really love it. For the type of hair cut I usually get, and my hair budget, a place like Great Clips is really all I need. Also, I really like the guy who cuts my hair. He sort of reminds me of some one I used to date. I'm not sure why that should make me like him, but for some reason it's a plus for him... He's also attractive - so that doesn't hurt.

It's funny how - shall we say - conservative? I've become over the last two years. I'm getting rid of all my nonessential stuff and editing down my closet to the most basic of basics. I was sort of all over the place in college. Check out this sweet coif I used to be an owner of.

The dogs and one of my roommates will be moving out. I'll miss you Murphy... You were the best deaf dog I've ever known.

To all my loved ones out there - Keep your eyes out for some post! I've picked up a new hobby.

Plaza Lights

Oddly enough, this is the first lighting of the Plaza Christmas Lights I have attended. I grew up here, and somehow I managed to miss this major Kansas City tradition every year. 

It was alright.

I don't know what happened to the audio during the upload. Imagine a whole crowd counting down before the lights go up, then cheering and screams. Lovely.

It's so beautiful.

Here's the link to the story.

This is a very well done documentary on the possibility of past lives. Why must the UK always be the source of very good TV documentaries? US, get your act together.

Minneapolis is such a fantastic town. I love when I can visit. During my last visit, I was part of a photo shoot (that was part of a larger project) for my very good friend, Aurelia Lange. I co-starred with another very good friend Katelyn Reece Farstad. Is there anything more entertaining than taking off clothes, painting yourself and taking photos?

I also got two zines from my very close and very talented friends - Aurelia Lange, and Andres Guzman. Having artist friends is so lovely. Take a look at their sites for more of their work. Aurelia Lange and Andres Guzman

Also, I had to share that on my drive from Minneapolis to Kansas City I past a wind farm. They are so beautiful and immense. Hopefully, these are really going to be a big part of our future.

One Day

One day when I have the money to invest in interior comforts I'll hopefully be buying things like this. The ditte sofa is from Anthropologie and the six-foot diameter lamp is from Zava

Studio reorganized.

It's funny, when I was a young and lonely teen I took up the hobby of rearranging my room. At it's height I would change my room's layout about every week or two. I've since give that hobby up, but with that said, I changed my room today and feels pretty good. I need a real bed by the way.

Heaven Under Earth

Here's the link to the article.


Schmooze... great shoes, ridiculously stupid name.

Oh wait, I don't think the third pair down is by Schmooze. Hmm... Oh well.

Aye Aye Captian

I'm ridiculous. Don't read that title more than once and certainly don't remember it.

I have a new hobby I want to pick up. Documenting my life in a dairy. Yes, a diary... though, I'd 
prefer to think of it as a captains log. I've had enough of my dependably undependable memory. I need a reference for what is going on internally and externally. Too often I fall back on three sets of time to describe my past. Something either happened a few days ago, two weeks ago, or awhile ago. That's the extent of my specificity and it's sad.

Time for a sweet new notebook! I'd prefer the Miquelrius brand because - they're amazing, they're from Spain, I love their Logo, and most importantly they're not a Moleskine. For whatever insanely stupid reason I hate Moleskines. I think it's because they're always marketed as the notebook for the "Inspired Individual". It just pisses me off for some reason. However, Moleskine it will have to be for me. Miquelrius doesn't carry a date book version of their handsome notebooks. Moleskine does.

End of trivial entry.

Tivoli Tuesdays

Tsubaki Sanjuro, 1962

Play Time, 1967

Au revoir les enfants, 1987

The last handful of tuesdays I've spending my evenings at the Tivoli. Here are three great films one might want to dig up for some viewing pleasure. While digging, you might want to look for some background info on each. The more context you have on their making, the more enjoyable the watch.

A Small Effort.

Initially I wanted this blog, in some way, to be a reflection of my interests and investigations. In reality, it has become a neglected little portion of web space. This entry is in large part another attempt to keep this silly blog updated... regularly.

I posted two images that I find to be incredibly fascinating. I wish I could illustrate in the style of the first and the second is an detail of the sun's surface.

Hello, I took out my hammer, saw, and nails and went to work on my site. I must say, within a year I've learned a lot about 'web stuff' and I had to do something with all that info. There's a lot of other projects and good things I've been working on so keep an eye on the site for updates. Much love everyone.

for certain.

I haven't left. Well, actually maybe I had left the blog - but I've returned. Once I get my camera back in my possesion hopefully I'll be updating on my current state of affairs. Just to let everyone know - I've moved. Good heavens! I'm in Kansas City. It's such a strange and wonderful thing.

I need spring. This thing called winter is getting old.  I also need an animation program... I have a feeling that Photoshop's animated gifs aren't the most efficient way to animate something.

The songs I'm in love with right now - 
Heart It Races (As Played by Dr Dog) / Architecture in Helsinki
Time to Pretend / MGMT
Cupid / Sam Cooke
The Chills / Peter Bjorn & John
You Make Me Like Charity / The Knife

I've been absent from my blog for quite some time. There is so much that I need to update about. Consequently, this post will most definitely be a rather bizarre but hopefully entertaining amalgamation!

To begin, the low outside is -12 °F. This Minnesotan winter is bearing down on me without forgiveness. I need spring. For the benefit of my own sanity, I've posted a clip from Disney's Fantasia to help remind myself of the awesomeness of humane weather. For whatever reason, I find this particular clip very reminiscent of what early spring is. enjoy!

I've been really interested in crop circles for a while. I just recently found an excellent documentary on the subject. For an online documentary, it's quality is very high. Though some radical ideas are thrown about, I feel it stays very grounded, and it does a very good job of explaining why crop circles are one of the most sincere and bizarre phenomena we have with us today.

For all of you who are remotely interested in the year 2012 and all the anomalies surrounding it, check out the the two videos below. The History Channel did a show concerning the most popular prophecies that center around 2012. This is one of the better shows I've seen on the subject. It goes beyond Mayan prophecy and seems to tap into ideas of the collective conscience... very interesting. I definitely recommend it. Oh, and don't give too much thought of the crustal displacement theory that is mentioned - even though it is an absolutely fantastic theory, it doesn't seem to have much hard evidence behind it... at least not as much as geomagnetic reversals do. Again, enjoy!

Now, for those of you who know me, know that I'm not one labeled as a reader. However, despite that I'm going to recommend/showcase two great books. The first book I actually read. It's titled, The God Theory, and it's an amazing book discussing how God, physics, and our human experience can possibly fit together, since at the moment they seem very much at odds. Beyond the fact that I appreciated his more philosophical ideas of God, I was delighted to find some one who could eloquently explain the dogma of scientism - the idea that modern science now seems to resemble organized religion more so than a method of inquiry. This is something I've been dying to communicate but have often felt misunderstood. Even, more significant is that this author, is a scientist himself.
This is a good read if you're searching for the beauty of our reality and how everything from physics to spiritual experiences are tied together.

I could go on and on about this book, and of course I definitely recommend it 

Now, the next book I didn't really read... at least not yet. However, that doesn't matter. It's a book for you eyes! It's an old book that I bought at a thrift store, and it's called All About Strange Beasts of the Present. It's absolutely fantastic! It's great because it celebrates how truly weird and wondrous the world we live in really is... something that is too easily forgotten. The illustrations are superb, very simple and the colour used for the spot color is absolutely perfect.
Oh, and I bought it for a mere $0.16. It's the universe's way letting me know I was supposed to have it.

Last, I wanted to share with everyone a new addition to my face. Yes, I'm in the process of growing a mustache... it's origins are a mystery, but yet it exists. This is an exciting event for me seeing as there has been a terrifying shortage of mature signs of masculinity pertaining to my body. I'm not sure how long it'll be around, but I do have a goal of leaving it until the top hair grow down to the top part of my lip. I've heard that's quite a commitment.
