Hoop you have a good weekend

February 26, 2010

My friend came back from Los Angeles, last night, with TWO POUNDS of Black Cat Espresso beans!

Its like a coke dealer going straight from Columbia to a bar on the Lower East side on Thursday night, over here.

I’ve got so much energy that I’ve decided to show that I can hula hoop for an entire Charles Bronson song without messing up!…well almost.

ohJoy! (81-85/365)

February 25, 2010

I’ve been slacking on my 365 photo project, but instead of cheating and backdating different photo entries, I’m just going to roll them all into this entry about things I love, recently.

So put that in your cup of tea and stir it!

Stretching!

Adding eyelashes to everything: (81/365) Models in in magazines, coffee stains on my white desk, ducks I’ve sewn. Everything is more fun with lashes.

Birthday parties for places. Not people. (82/365)

Music! (83/365) I’ve been listening to a lot of Television Personalties and Gogol Bordello while I work and clean. Keeps me awake, makes me smile, and furthers my boner for Eugene Hutz.

Eugene Hutz: The above featured photo truly is like Magic Eye for vaginas. We both wear torn socks on our arms, stem from Eastern Europe, and drink wine from the bottle. I think thats a good base for marriage, no?

Cartoons and comics: I’ve watched nearly every episode of Flapjack and read all of the Winsor McCay in my house since its been raining outside.

The Kitchen: I love my office. Its got stacks of hard drives, good speakers, all of my pens and scissors in neat little tins, and a huge window in place of a wall. I could sit there all day but now that its snowing, its been slightly too chilly to be so close to an 8 ft tall window for more than an hour. So I’ve grabbed the laptop and relocated to the kitchen! I like it here, too. I’m within arms reach to fresh coffee and the cookie jar.

Handmade jewelry: (84/365) Bee stopped by the other day and bedazzled a pair of harmonica earrings she made me for Christmas. It inspired me to make some earrings of my own! So I went through my bone collection and made a simple pair out of buffalo teeth. I love them!

This snow: (85/365) This morning, still too tired to get my layers on, I took the dog out in the anti outfit: A slip, cotton hoodie, and Doc Martins. I was fully aware of the huge chunks of snow falling from the sky and the fact that I was about to catch a cold. But when I got outside and it was actually pretty nice out. I wasn’t freezing and it wasn’t cold enough for the snow to stick. I pranced around the snow and stepped in puddles for a while before coming back up and making some tea. Now, I’m just enjoying the view from the other side.

other things I’m enjoying:

  • Emails of personalized poems from friends.
  • Getting Netflix and handwritten letters in the mail, on the same day.
  • The thought of going to Los Angeles for a visit, soon.
  • My tumblr. WordPress, take note on layouts for idiots.
  • Stocking up for some gluten free baking supplies.
  • Hipster Puppies!
  • One of my favorite Floridan ladies coming up to visit, next week.
  • Cigarettes in old tin cases.
  • “Life is like a sewing machine bobbin. You never know what you’ll get tangled up in”
  • Getting a hilarious email that ends with “so yeah. I hope you enjoyed your trip to jail”
  • This project that I will be taking on next week! (but instead of the Warhol, I’m feeling more inspired by the above photo)
  • doing fun childlike things. Like this girl gets to do this entire video!
  • Sparking water with artificial cherry
  • Scent of a Woman and other Al Pacino movies
  • clicking on a link called “see Mike Pattons penis” and expecting to not see Mike Pattons penis.
  • wearing bright colors with my black hair
  • ginger dipped in dark chocolate
  • Helping with causes for friends
  • being called “tough guy”
  • swimming laps 4 times a week
  • magnolia trees
  • grass and dirt. I can’t wait for it to get here!

Tough and Savage.

February 20, 2010

Things tough guys do:

  • have great posture
  • stand in large groups with other tough guys
  • have confidence and missing teeth
  • keep their hands in pockets
  • drink dark thick beers

There are all tips I’ve taken from this video of tough guys.

a self portrait from today

I recently took a look back at old journals and sketch books from when I was 15 and these seem to be the things that have never changed and that hopefully never will:

  1. My favorite food is tako. Japanese for octopus.
  2. My favorite action is peeling things. Anything from oranges to glue off my hands.
  3. My favorite smell is a tie between Windex, sulfur, and  Gardenias (which has been bottled up and sold as a spray).
  4. My favorite color is white. It makes me think of a blank canvas or a clean room.
  5. The best album ever is the Shape of Punk to Come by Refused. Its not even my opinion. Its just a fact.

What are your favorites? Perhaps you’ll change my mind…

  1. Food:
  2. Action:
  3. Smell:

  5. Album:

Drinking the Sade Syrup

February 19, 2010

What type of magical potion is Sade sipping that she hasn’t aged since the age of 25? The woman is 51!

Champagne Surfing (79/365)

February 19, 2010

No words. Just several bottles of champagne, and good peoples.

Mixed Company (78/365)

February 19, 2010

The other day I got to spend some time with Justin and Lucy. Played video games with Justin and “Please don’t accidently take off my finger in this game of tug-o-war” with Lucy.

Justin knew I was feeling a bit down recently and made me a mix before I left. Needless to say, he lifted my sprits and warmed my little ole’ heart which probably smelt like rotting gruyere cheese beforehand.

Heres what was on it:

1. the knife – pass this on
2. fever ray – when i grow up
3. dangermouse and sparklehorse – little girl (featuring julian casablancas)
4. rainer maria – tinfoil
5. jawbox – savory
6. alkaline trio – this could be love
7. pinback – penelope
8. reverie sound revue – you don’t exist if i don’t see you
9. camera obscura – happy new year
10. dinosaur jr. – feel the pain
11. dave rawlings machine – sweet tooth

Duh Bear (77/365)

February 19, 2010

My friend James is full of random ridiculous quotes and ideas. So much so that I’ve made a twitter account to document the things that he says that make me laugh, sometimes.

One of his ridiculous ideas was to become a bear. So with the help of a brown hoodie, some fake fur, and some scrap felt, I’m making it happen.

A Love Train (76/365)

February 15, 2010

I happen to have had the best Valentines day ever. I had such a day full of love that I decided to spread it around a bit.

I turned the L train into the Love train.

(more…)

Patched Up Hearts (75/365)

February 14, 2010

I had a ton of red scrap felt, so I cut it into tons of little hearts and made Valentines day patches with my friends initials on them!

Its pretty simple all you need is:

  • embrodery floss
  • needle
  • felt
  • thread that is the same color of the felt
  • fusible interface

Sew the embroidery floss through the heart so that it creates a letter, stitch the interface onto the back and volia!

I made a card, and attached the patch onto it, but now i wish I would have somehow attached it to my Valentines Mix.

Click on my Valentine for some lovely tunes

Spooning in a Spoon

February 14, 2010

Happy Valentines day, stupids.

My favorite love song starts 1:40 seconds into this Ub Iwerks cartoon.

Pins And Needles (74/365)

February 13, 2010

Im having a hard time getting motived, today. Blame whatever vices, you will.

Sometimes (preferable when its warmer out and my Nintendo DS is fully charged) I wish the power would just go out for days and I would have to continuously find new ways to entertain myself without photoshop, instant netflix, and sticking my tongue into electrical sockets.

Doin’ It On My Limbs (73/365)

February 13, 2010

Yesterday  my dog learned how to hump. Its the sneakiest dog move ever. It always takes me a second to realize when it’s happening.  “awe she’s hugging my leg….wow she’s really got a gri….HEY! NO!”

A Good Friend (72/365)

February 11, 2010

This is Laura. When we were younger we wrote sweet ‘zines. She would rant about our corrupt political system with her glue spiked hair. I walked around school with a doll as a cell phone case, raving about my love for Steve Clue.

Laura once told me that a good friendship is one when you can meet up with someone you haven’t seen for months and not get offended by the fact that time has passed. Just continue where you left off.

Lauras a good friend.

Last year she introduced me to Cuban foods. Today, I introduced her to Mood.

Success all around!
