This is some sort of update I suppose. This past Sunday, a photo of me taken by my friend Eliz made it into The New York Times Magazine for their cover story entitled “What Is It About 20-Somethings?”. Photos of me are featured in the online gallery and in the printed version. Check the photo that made it to print below:

I’ve neglected my poor little blog that I’ve had for nearly four years now. Almost wanted to pull the plug (again) but this blog has come in handy when DJing. People come up to me asking what particular song is playing and I can usually point them to my blog as most songs queried about have been posted. I should probably start posting DJ setlists but I start and seem to get annoyed by the WordPress UI. As I am barely posting on here, I often post to my twitter page or to the youtube channel, more frequently than here anyway. I know some people check back here for updates only to find the shamefully scant amount of posts for 2010 (can’t believe it’s almost over!). Hypem stopped tracking my blog twice now thanks to the lack of updates. I’ve also setup a photoblog for the ridiculous amount of film that I have scanned in these past months (yes those gazillion rolls I’ve talked about since 2008), which of course I’ve barely posted to. Now that fall is steadily approaching and summer is nearing to an end, I will be indoors more to tend to these things I’ve been neglecting. Also I sent my friend in Portland a mixtape that I am thinking of posting. Planning to make a mixtape to keep for myself and post to the blog.

My friends live behind an abandoned building which apparently had the chest above full of lost photos from it’s previous inhabitants. I have no idea where I put the batch of photos I collected but it reminded me of the Eyeless in Gaza album I started listening to obsessively the day I unpreparedly left to Minneapolis. Thanks to Stevie, I have mp3s of almost all of the Eyeless in Gaza albums save for Pale Hands I Loved So Well. The evocative “Others” and idiosyncratic “Fixation” are from their first album, 1981’s Photographs as Memories, my favorite album thus far.

Found photos to come as soon as I find them, being something of an anonymous visual anectdote. My favorite is the recurring woman’s goth phase in the early ’90’s.

All the rain = Mother Nature crying for Iran.

I just wanted to post this rather interesting picture.

Next mix cover, perhaps?

This is currently my favorite thing on the internet. I got tagged on facebook to do this, so I will tag some blog folks to do the same. I love this shit and love how mine came out!

1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random… Read More”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 – Post it to your blog with this text in the body and TAG the friends you want to join in.

I tag Alex, Mark, Brent, Mary-Louise, Steve, and Alana. Let’s see if any of you actually do it.

Photo from here and title of album taken from randomized quote by Timothy Leary.

The three songs attached are probably what it would sound like… though I’d probably name my band Trytophan.

The title of this entry would probably be a song title.

This HAS to be fake:

I have no idea the source of these files. I don’t give a fuck about engaging in political discussions (I was raised not to talk about it), but I cannot help but love this man. Look at those women!

I will spare you the screenshot of my savings account that shows a negative balance! I think I should start a Sybil Film fund (or 5D fund), I have no monies to develop the ridiculous amount of rolls I have accumulated. I miss the gratification of seeing my finished photos. I wish a part time lab job was easy to come by in this kaka economy, I think I have better chances of finding a film lab boyfriend. Also I am in a bitchy mood today thanks to my crazy cat Shaolin (who I have nicknamed Grace Jones) prematurely waking me up. I will also spare you the entry which was going to be named “Bitchfest: February 2009 Edition.”

It’s a quarter to 10 AM and I think I need a drink already. I miss living two blocks from Clem’s right about now.

Happy Tuesday!
