Does it say "steal me" or "don't even try it, fuck-o"?

I can't decide, but I do love me some red tires.

LIGHT UP SPOKES












I WANT [THE HEART] OF COURSE! OR THE [I HEART BIKE] ONE!

A little confizzled


I'm really curious as to how this basket weave is supposed to look when applied to the search I did on "spokes"

good advert, captain

I like the ship in the bottle people, why don't they just drink with those people?

That's why this one is better:

Stevie Nicks- sweet vs scary

THE WHIRL IS NOW FOR SALE AT VINTAGE VINYL!

Too bad I already buy it from my tall Ethiopian friend who makes me and Ali blush at the 7 eleven when I buy my cigarettes. Now I can buy it next time I go record shopping!

This mussel is outta control.

Upsidedown or rightside up? I know I'm not the only one with a dirty enough mind to think of what this looks like...and on top of that it looks like a heart.

Someone make me these outfits and I will dance for you







Does this remind anyone else of an episode of Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job!???? There are 75 videos of this stuff! [CHANNEL!]

CHEAP CHEAP FUN FUN!

If you have ever watched TV in St Louis, You already know what I'm talking about.



This guy that is friends with my teacher came in to show us his work and one of the things they did was go floating on the Huzzah River to party! You may remember when I did the same this past fourth of July [see it here it was fun] or the summer before that when Stephen took me and his then roommate to HAPPY LAND.


Let's throw this one in for good measure:


HEY, BE CAREFUL OUT THERE!

My good friend, Michael Ferrer*, will be making his journey to New York City next week and what better way to say good-bye than this excellent show. Michael has been known for throwing on weekly seances for nearly three years in his former basement, SPOOKY ACTION PALACE**. I can't thank him enough for some of the best times in my life.*** Unfortunately, my words cannot express my gratitude for his true genius. Let's wish him the best of luck and kick out the jams.

***You're welcome, Josh-- and thanks for always coming over to awkwardly greet bands with me and do dishes/help clean/set up!

Recently someone actually said this to me

It was more awkward than the gratifying situation you imagine when
they're actually being mean to you i'm high school, but way LESS
awkward when last year this guy that was a total dick to me in High
school just up and gave me a hug without warning.

I love it when cats cover their faces with their paws, it reminds me
of when i'm trying to sleep in so I put a pillow over my head.

Key West Uses Hemingway Cats to Promote Tourism

Saw this on TV the other day and was pretty surprised, I kind of didn't know what to do with myself, except now I want to take Chilton barhopping with me...do you think he likes more than just the smell of beer?

For those of you that don't know what a Hemingway cat is, a more descriptive name of them is a Polydactyl cat, which you already knew if you clicked on that link. Still confused??

Below the video is what the Youtube poster has to say:
Jan 7th: "Today Key West is launching a new TV spot to promote the wild and crazy nightlife in Key West. The spot, created by Tinsley Advertising Miami, begins with a cat wearing a special camera helmet as singers sing "Key West six-toed cat cam". We then see the cat running from bar to bar filming all the stuff on Duval Street from dining to dancing to friendly drag queens. "We actually got one of the descendants of Ernest Hemingway's six-toed cats and trained him to wear a helmet camera. " said Dorn Martell, Creative Director at Tinsley Advertising in Miami. "A lot of destinations roll up the sidewalks when the sun goes down" said John Underwood, Account Supervisor at Tinsley, "we wanted to get the message out that Key West comes alive at night." "We thought that seeing Key West from a cat's point of view would be different from what you would normally see in a tourism commercial and we all know Key West would never be accused of being normal" said Dorn Martell. The spot ends with the camera cat looking sly as he is petted by a group of young ladies in a club as the announcer says: "Key West, because you only have one life to live." The spot will run on national cable television as part of the Florida Keys "Come as You Are" campaign."

AWKWARD STOCK PHOTOS






NEW SINGLE TOPIC BLOG ALERT! Is it weird that I like the one with the tinsel and balloon and tiger mask in all seriousness?

Robo Lincoln Misinterpretation & Walt Disney looking babely



So over the holiday I watched this TV special with my brother and my mom on Imagineering at Disney, and there was one particular story that caught my attention and sent me on an internet search. If you've ever been to Disneyland in CA or Disneyworld in FL, you may or may not have gone to the show "Great Moments With Mr Lincoln" where there is a robotic Lincoln who serves as the narrator/star of the show. We all love Lincoln, right?

Well, the story goes that apparently while they were engineering the RoboLincoln, there were all sorts of kinks and in progress changes and experimentation, as there is with anything new you are trying to innovate, and they were building RoboLincoln's movements off of a hydraulic system and all the hydraulic fluid at the time was red, and Walt Disney took a lady friend to impress with the innovations his staff was making, and when he was demonstrating how RoboLincoln worked, one of the lines with the hydraulic fluid burst and seeped out onto RoboLincoln's shirt, and the poor girl thought that Walt was reenacting the assassination with RoboLincoln!

Anyways, I read this from an interview with an imagineer that worked for Disney at the time which is very interesting actually, read it when you get a moment [HERE]


I really like that this photo of Walt Disney's filename is called "waltdisneyimpish" because I didn't know what that word meant until a local writer called this boy that liked me "tall, slender, and somewhat impish" in an article a year ago and something else that weekend landed me in a photo where I was credited as a designer on Flash Art Online (even though my friend William wrote it) wherein my friend Amy actually did that thing that you imagine celebrities doing that's like "oh I hate that picture!"...and well yeah, not really much else to say about that one.

Can't seem to make you mine...

I really hope that this isn't dubbed, it looks like she's dancing to all the right parts and everything, it's just unfathomably cool that she'd be dancing to one of my favorite Seeds songs...

Oh and speaking of babes and butts and stuff, I got an email from American Apparel today that said they are looking for the perfect butt for a new butt model. I hope this link works bc it's from my email. If you have a pair of American Apparel panties or a leotard or something, and you have a butt, maybe we should all submit? Actually, after seeing some of those buns, I'm kind of intimidated.

forget the song, look at all the surfing animation!


I wish I were in the sunshine.

Vanessa we miss you

White Flag misses its Canadian intern.

I want to be this girl right now


Ryan McGinley's photographs make hanging out nude look like the coolest and funnest thing you can do...and everyone looks like they are in some sort of heaven because nothing is location specific, and everyone has perfect skin.

Why did I ever get tattoos? Jk. Found one with tattoos:


DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND SEE WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT [HERE]
Now, I'm off to get my hurr did.

I love you

Anchovy has the best winter gear EVER!

HIP HOP H2O- This post dedicated to the PARTY VAN!

If you haven't seen this STL van, you're missing out. Maybe the best flash intro I have ever seen.
[SEE THEIR WEBSITE]

Oh yeah, perfect opportunity to point out that I've added a link to my blogroll, which is all about my friend's party van. Here's my pic of his party van, (which may not be the only picture I have, but I am not sure about that one) at the skatium before I left for CA over the holidays:

[PARTY VAN!!]

DOES THIS BANNER AD BEFUDDLE ANYONE ELSE?

HOW OLD ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO BE TO HAVE THIS APPEAL TO YOU? Are we supposed to scan in baby pictures and see if we turned out as cute as we were sposta? What kind of database does this draw from? I'm seriously imagining a room full of friends who get these things as emails and are like "who do we know that this kid looks like? which one of our facebook friends' profile pictures should we email back to this kid?" HOW IS THIS A SERVICE? I'M SO CONFUZED, FML.

Your New Role Model


Katie of SIMYP wrote about this guy who invents jetpacks and takes pictures with celebrities on The Faster Times and I decided I'd share it all with you because I instantly love this guy just for his moustache and incredible hat. Shoutout to STL's own celebrity photo taking friends and peripheral local celebrities Jim Utz, Joe Edwards, and Jasper's Antique Radio Museum place that's only open when dude feels like it and I'm not actually sure if he means it is a 'store' or a 'museum' but either way he's got great handpainted signs on Cherokee and Illinois, or as I like to call that intersection..."CHILLINOIS"

Ps- I am 20 minutes late to class. FML even though I did this to myself. I am such a bad person.

This is why he freaks me out

Why would something so fat feel compelled to stretch its arms ALL the
way out in front of him, SO straight???

I love anything with sunglasses on!

Had to pause south park to get this gem!

Taylor and our small scale model

Taylor built this small scale model of the gallery and I am building
the tiny art so we can plan shows before we pay for special care arts
shipping. She's taping off the floors and painting the walls and it's
really especially hilarious because we've done this in real life so
many times.

Chelsea Handler is so cool.

I've been watching a lot of Chelsea Lately...I really like that she has a bunch of comedians she cycles in and out for her round table thing, especially that she has Natasha Leggero (who I adore) and I also like that all the interviews with actors are like just them talking about their dogs or riffing off one another or her friends being like "so you didn't come to my party but you did prank call me." until she's like "yeah so are you gonna tell my audience when to watch your tv show or do I have to do it for you bc we are out of time."

I almost want to read her books. She looks really young in this picture...I wonder when it is from...

WHAT ARE YOU DOING SATURDAY?

As always, there will be (free) beer, wine, and water served, not sure if I'll be shooting photos or serving drinks, but I will be there, and it's always nice to see my friends attend the shows! The openings are very fun with interesting people, and there is SO MUCH going on Saturday night that I haven't even seen what everyone is doing, but I might have some answers if you come to the show!

I ate these BEIGNETS tonight

I just went with my friends Alex and Sam to Cafe Ventana for sandwiches and-- MORE IMPORTANTLY-- beignets. They were AWESOME, if you've never had them- you really need to try them...and if you've never had the chocolate ones before, like I hadn't before tonight....you need to ASAP. I don't know if they still do it, but they used to give you a FREE beignet if you rode your bike there. I hope they still have that special!
Alex has new hair:
Sam and I messily enjoying our beignets:
My mouth is so stuffed, I honestly don't even know why I'm posting this picture...they are that good, I have chocolate all over my mouth. Sam got chocolate on my phone taking this picture.
