I've decided to post, although this page has been inactive for long enough that I'll be amazed if anyone still looks. I just feel like sharing things that I love right now. Sharing, caring:

1) Charlotte Gainsbourg - AF607105 may be the new "Comfortably Numb." ok, maybe not, but it's really cool. The whole album is very French-British snap your fingers spoken word pop.

2) Venture Bros. Season 2 on DVD - just so freaking good. Go buy both seasons and you'll understand.

3) "The Salon" - tres neat graphic novel about turn of the century Paris, Modernists AND mystery!

4) A Model Summer - my fun book for the month, basically a more intellectual, realistic "America's Next Top Model" in written form

5) This guy's voice:

6) What I do NOT like - law school finals

I’ve lost my fear. I always wondered why, and how, adults are less scared in general than children. Sure, they’re just smarter and aware that monsters might really not exist. But what about just being alone? Hearing strange noises? The unexplained? The answer is boredom.
I realize I’m no longer scared alone because if something strange and bizarre did happen, that might not be so bad. Sure, I might have the shit scared out of me, but adults have come to terms with the passage of time, and everything passes. If I didn’t die of something, which I would have no control over anyway, then it would pass and everything would be cool. Actually, it might just be exciting to see some crazy shit like an alien or chupacabra. Would be a nice conversation piece.
I’m sick of being scared. Tired of being anxious, so I’ve welcomed the thought of something frightening. My fear itself convinced me to believe in monsters and ghosts. Now I almost want something to happen just to confirm my beliefs, rather than a constant, but unsure, disenchantment. I’ve become a blasé adult that doesn’t mind sleeping alone because my boredom has overcome my fear. I kinda want my fear back.

PS I was probably an overly superstitious child. When I would brush my teeth, I'd have to look behind me, because I realized if there was a vampire in the room, I wouldn't be able to see his reflection in the mirror. How's that for over-thinking fiction.

Mellowdrone - Part 2

Saw mellowdrone again last night. SO GOOD. If you don't have their new album, then you should be sad... until you buy it. I actually met Jon and shook his hand. It was wet (with sweat), but awesome. Used my Dad as an excuse and asked about the make of his guitar. Rock on!

Might see them at Spaceland next Friday.

For posterity:

Found these in a wallet insert and had to scan them.

Yes, we've been together a while.

I'm so hot.

Here's my celebrity look-alike chart. Good thing, I'm hot like Eva Mendez. Bad thing, I'm gonna look like Sharon Osbourne.

My Personal Favorite Zoo Photo

... from the 3 rolls I took at the zoo with my telephoto lens. Half of those shots were of monkeys, and it was hard to choose, but this is my favorite.

I call it "Monkey Tickle" for obvious reasons. I know, I'm sick.

Unspeakable pain of cuteness:

This is my new FAVORITE photo.
