Deviation

There is always more than one way to walk to work. Now, keep in mind that I didn’t say that all ways were equidistant, or faster. Just that there’s more than one way. Some shop along Damen Avenue. I don’t know if this was meant as a statement, the result of someone merely wanting the statue’s head… or just plain…

Downpour, 4:30 AM

I woke to the sound of thunder and sheets of rain coming down outside. I immediately jumped out of bed, running around the apartment in my boxers trying to close all the open windows. Nothing was too wet, as I had gotten up in time. But when I got back to bed, I was overcome with a profound sense of…

Moving

Going to try to get all my stuff moved in somewhat early, hopefully before the end of the month. Talked with Steph a bit, and it still hasn’t sunk in that I’m going to be transporting EVERYTHING I OWN TO ANOTHER PLACE. Ugh. Steph has been wonderful and super great with getting the specifics worked out. After I get everything…

Frustrating

Got to load up Flash MX on my PC today, so I no longer feel naked. :D But as I was trying to get this music postcard thing to work, something basic was escaping me. I kept trying to load these jpegs dynamically (which was happening fine), but I kept trying to get a preloader to work. Essentially, before the…

Some Days are More Successful Than Others

Point and case, today’s walk to work. Nothing that spectacular, other than me spotting a fork that had somehow fallen and landed in a precarious spot. I hung out with Justin after work, and we watched a bit of TV. He moved into Rey’s old office temporarily, and there’s a nice monitor up in the corner that gets cable. We…

Leaving Work

This is a random, tattered mural on North Avenue. Decided to try a shot with some weird perspective stuff in it. Got attracted by the lines and the intersections. So the Skittles box was there, but I ran upstairs and brought the Bass down. You know. Beer and Skittles? Oh, nevermind…

During Work

On the way back from lunch with some Q101 folk. Caught this guy hanging out on the third or fourth floor window of an unfinished building. Hehe. A pic for seventh. I’ve never been inside, but my guess is they’ve got a bunch of Australians in cages. And they’re exhibiting them. :P

Walking to Work

Carry a camera around. At all times. Just because yesterday was dull is no promise that today will be so. What I’ve discovered is that I’m now playing a game with you. The game is whether or not I can find new images each and every day, despite the fact that I take the same train, walk the same route,…

Jogging

I did it. Woke up early, put on some shorts, braved the 50 degree morning and jogged a bit. How much? How far? Well, let’s not talk about specifics right now. The important thing is that you need to congratulate me for getting my ass out of bed and jogging. :D

Invitation

Before I left the balcony, Gretchen invited me to a party she was having. I really should have gone, but at the time… I felt like my social quota had already been filled. Felt like I had been around people all day today, and needed time alone. I wish there was some way to switch the ratios around. To top…

Artists on the Web

As I was walking around, I stopped to pick up the business cards of artists that I liked. I figure, hell… may as well put them up here for you to see too. Matt Robinson | www.mmrobinson.com Shin Lim | www.artbyshin.com (this is currently broken, but maybe it’ll be up later)Ken Keirns | www.kenkeirns.com Todd Willing | www.toddwillingart.comLaura Lee Junge…

Around the Coyote

Now, when I first saw this, I was taken aback. Not for the profanity, but more for the sheer idea that someone took time out of their life to carve this into stone. Who did this person have in mind? Me, specifically? The world? The fact that it’s so indiscriminate in its rancor made me laugh, when I stopped to…

The Word for Today is "Restraint"

Sweet Jebus. I damn near killed off that pint last night. Called Juliet, but I have no idea what in the hell I went on about. This is one of those fuzzy mornings where I’m wondering if I need to call back and apologize for anything I said. I need to learn how to pace my booze. But I’ve also…

I Had an Idea for a Poem Earlier

But I’m not sure if it was a good idea, or just the chemicals chattering away in my brain. It’s difficult to tell sometimes, if it’s insight you’ve gained, or just stupidity. Trying to work it out now, and scribbling and writing a bit. I switched to whiskey. Went out to the store, and bought a small pint. A fifth…
