there were just too many things on the internet that needed to be part of this collection.
keith’s diary, 1963. love the scribbled out section of “people who’ve got it in for us.”
Filed under: art, business, chicago, clothes, friends, history, liquor, things i like
here are some blogs i like. this is long overdue.
party on damen, the violet hour’s bartenders’ blog:
recipes & goings-on in the world of libations.
or, how to make the man in your life dress like your dream date.
well-curated ideas, photography, & inspiration desde méxico,
“because creativity is not a luxury. it is indispensable.”
paleofuture: the future that never was.
the convergence of history and sci-fi = i have serious blogger jealousy over this one.
drinking with rules,
a concerted effort towards giving your drunkenness rhyme and reason:
gonna be famous. you heard it here first.
i’ll probably think of some more in a bit.
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?
it’s been a month…
what have i been doing?
well, i will be updating a lot to fill you in on that, but not in chronological order.
i am going to start with what i’ve done most recently, and then add in older things as i remember them.
ok? it’s a plan.
oh my god. i am so bad with this whole keeping-a-blog-up-to-date thing.
i knew this would happen.
updates… tomorrow, maybe?
(because i know you are hanging by the skin of your teeth awaiting more musings.)
…i never understood that expression. skin of your teeth. hrmmm.
look at that; you all just learned spanish.
i’m here, and it’s really cool. i’m also crazy tired. more later!
Filed under: business, friends, karl pilkington, ricky gervais, stephen merchant
in a terribly unoriginal turn of events, i am starting a blog. here are a bunch of people who already have blogs and will probably do a much better job than me at maintaining them: EB, melissa, ami li …and others, i’m sure.
let’s get down to business. the title of this page is taken from the one and only karl pilkington, friend of ricky gervais (who created ‘the office’ and ‘extras’ and is one of my heroes). i chose it because it made me laugh. in the clip, karl is trying to explain to ricky and stephen merchant why he thinks that the vacation between christmas and new year’s is “a waste of time.” he states, “i’m just sayin’… i don’t like fun.”
there comes a time when you have to realize that you’re taking yourself too seriously.
for more witty sayings by karl, ricky, and stephen, check out the pilkipedia.
anyway, i am leaving for buenos aires on september 24th. i am going to be exploring and volunteering for fundación ph15, an organization that provides kids from the villa oculta with cameras, photography workshops, and opportunities to show and sell their art. personally, i will be photographing a lot, but probably not digitally, so i don’t have a photo site and will probably not be posting pictures too frequently. i also don’t know where i’m living yet, so contact me by email or skype.
other rules and purposes i am establishing for this blog:
– the header will change sometimes. i’m indecisive.
– it won’t be updated every single day. sometimes i bore myself writing.
– some things i write about will be completely irrelevant. e.g. things i find on the internet.
– i will flagrantly steal pictures i like and will probably place them alongside various non-corresponding posts. chaos!
– this will be a place to put lists where i can’t lose them (because not everything can fit on the back of my hand when i write lists there).
i’ll probably think of more later.
