big brother & the holding co. + the grateful dead, 1967.
for vogue, 1949.
i am on my vacation, new york, 1944.
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.
