so, the blog died. i knew that was going to happen.
anyway, instead of dwelling on the past, i would like to make a thrilling announcement! (just in case the airwaves aren’t totally dead…)
this blog is no longer a travel-log (at least until i get to go somewhere cool again), but rather a place to collect and share things i enjoy (and/or that i just found while surfing the internet or going about my daily business.

first up: janis joplin’s badass 1969 mug shot.


she was charged with disorderly conduct after “yelling obscenities at police officers during a tampa concert.” later, she was released after the charges were dropped. how’s that for exercising your right to free speech?
