random thoughts..

I'll admit it. Sometimes I sit around, thinking of conversations where people will say something that provides me with an opportunity to say a snappy comeback, and how cutting and witty I'll deliver it, as to totally DESTROY them. I know I know, this means I'm insecure and a time waster and should be a blah blah blah....but it's fun to act out those scenarios in my head.

All I can think about today is how much I want this pair of Frye's boots and how I can't even rationalize buying them for myself. Considering I wear sneakers everyday, and have only started wearing real shoes in the past six months because I thought that I should grow up, starting from the bottom up.

Here's a picture of them, for reference:

How come some of the best songs have the most boring names and simple melodies? Unfortunately a bit obsessed with this sweet love song by the 6ths right now:

Also, it should be known that most people that work in coffee shops/cafes are the shit. And should be tipped accordingly. Also, just because I don't give you free coffee doesn't mean I don't like you.

No pictures right now being shot, but am being quite productive with updating my website. Kind of. Not today, obviously. I'm shooting more over the holidays and hopefully will be T.A.-ing next semester and can keep up a work flow. Man oh man, where does the time go? It'll almost be 2010. Whoop Whoop.

Self Portrait #12

It's All I Think About, May 2009

I've been listening to a lot of Magnetic Fields lately, reading lots of Robert Crumb comics, and am redesigning my website. I'm making christmas cards based on the large amount of decorations that I see around Bushwick that I love. In Livingston (NJ) there were decorations but they were extremely modest and WASPy, boring even. Or incredibly suburban, blow up cartoonish depictions of Santa Claus and the omnipresent Snowman. But Brooklyn does it up right and goes all out, with tons of blinking, multicolored lights, or a two toned pattern, as well as the blow up floatie doll things and those signs in the windows that shriek HAPPY HOLDAYS!!! FELIZ NAVIDAD! HEY LOOK, A MENORAH TOO! So yeah, those pictures combined with some funny anecdote will be a lovely makeshift Holiday gift. Have a good week! And, more work soon.
