A Bushwick Brunch.

December 13, 2010

My Sundays have recently been falling into a bit of a pattern. The alcohol thats still in my system, wakes me up at the ungodly hour of 9 a.m. I go out to the living room to recollect my actions of Saturday, with my room mate James. It always calls for coffee.

My neighborhood doesn’t have too many sit down restaurant options. Its fine because I could eat at the only one we do have pretty much everyday if I had the choice.

Northeast Kingdom is dimly  lit and looks like a lodge in Vermont. The coffee is good. The food is decently priced. Their waiting area plays Looney Toons by a fireplace. The servers are always somehow familiar and comforting. And best of all, its pretty much right downstairs from me.

James and I go there almost every Sunday. Sometimes its just us staring at the bar in silence, and sometimes we take our out of town visitors to show them that although our neighborhood still looks pretty sketchy, we have the redeeming factor of a classy looking place like Northeast!

This Sunday was a bit of  treat since our other room mate, Naomi, was around. Along with an old friend of James’ from Texas. Speaking of treats, I find it interesting to add in the fact that Naomi had taken a couple of special cookies before we headed down for breakfast.

I decided to document it because Naomi is moving out shortly, and although all three of us are friends, we’ve never all gone out for a meal before.

So this was the first and last room mate brunch in this chapter of my life.

Monday.

Productivity is minimal, right now. I blame the delicious Pop Tarts, sweet jams, and that Zombie Beauty Pageant that forced me out past my bed time, last night. I do not like this zombie trend. Not one bit.

  • Batali has a Meatless Monday dish at all 14 of his restaurants.
  • Fireworks being set off indoors.
  • Spitting off historical cartoon facts when asked to talk about something I love for a seamless 60 seconds.

  • Who You Gonna Call? (especially the guy 0:55 seconds into the video) I believe I was walking down the street with Krysti when we passed them on their way to film this. Oh, if only we had followed them.
  • The minimal design of the Digital Holga camera
  • Watching a random episode of Lost while having someone try to fill me in, as it goes. It was a bit like having a personal Mystery Science Theater 3000.
  • two cute!
  • The Brothers Bloom. All the details about it were so well done. The wardrobe, the sets, the soundtrack, Bang Bang, the ending.
  • “I don’t know about “truths.” A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells, the less you know.”
  • the spine bracelet.
  • “I’m too sad to kill you, today”
  • Band shirt care packages from New York

Taking photos from the car as we drive from San Francisco to LA on the 101 Highway, listening to Television

  • Books on Shirt.
  • Dancing in the middle of my office when I start getting tired, mid day
  • This Gorillaz commercial. Hey Damon, What with the cute outfit choice and  why isn’t Hewlett wearing it?

  • Having someone who can sense when I’m down and surprise me with a dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts, black coffee, and a collectors edition Takashi Miike film, when I wake up
  • Brits trying to impersonate my American accent.
  • Not having access to my iPhone for several weeks.

creative ways to create cause awareness. Like this one for Campaign Against Land Mines.

“…and I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there’s a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots.”

  • Growing a gardenia plant on my balcony
  • Having a very caring friend send me my favorite coffee from New York
  • this photo I took of Randi

I like this song…maybe I don’t. I haven’t been able to tell for the three weeks its been stuck in my head. Here are some musical gems that I am positive that my ears find appealing:

Roy:[humming] We don’t need no education.
Moss:Yes you do, you’ve just used a double negative.

Stacked Like a 5th grader (105/365)

March 15, 2010

There are few things I miss more about childhood than being in class with a vague project idea, a thick stack of white paper, and buckets of colorful pens and pencils. It really made me use my imagination.

The other day, I was shooting a project at the MOMA that involved some lucky teenagers and my most loved childhood atmosphere.

I think that over the next month or so, I’m going to set a day of the week where I set my house up like a 5th grade art class and have my adult friends over for some childlike fun.

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!

Flattery and Perverse Minimalism

August 5, 2009

It seems rediculious, but I get  pretty stoked when a slightly perverse photo I’ve taken gets put up on Synthetic Pubes.

I think Andrew Collins has good taste in design, photography, and ladies.
