see the world

if you're not smiling while you watch this video,
then the terrorists have already won.

i especially like the dancing in gurgaon, india.
and the dog that 'dances' with him in kuwait.
and the image of his silhouette in front
of the erupting geyser in iceland.

where the hell is matt?

a shot in the dark

i thought buying an 8-pack of those tiny bottles of sprite
they have for the kid's that brown bag it to school,
would help curb my addiction to soft drinks.
each is about 12-ounces or something.
i drank 4 with dinner! what the hell?
only 4 little sprites left.
this is pitiful.

it's a good thing i didn't go for a fifth,
cause i'm still buzzing from all that caffeine.
it's after 1:30 in the morning and i'm wide awake!

and since i'm awake, i'll share with you
a list of music i'm diggin' right now.

the last shadow puppets - the age of the understatement
Sigur Rós - Med Sud Í Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust
the black keys - attack and release
detektivbyrån - e18 album
girl talk - feed the animals
fleet foxes - fleet foxes
el guincho - alegranza
the kooks - konk

sleep tight.

oh, hey,
this guy is pretty good.

my new roomie

my sister found him scared and stiff as a board,
in the middle of a busy six-lane boulevard.
a city bus and two cars stopped.
my sister took him home.
she has two dogs.
so, no cats.

she called me today,
'i have something for you.'
i have never thought of myself as a cat person.
i want a dog, but 'no dogs allowed'.
i'm allergic to cats!

i haven't named him yet.
i've been trying to think of one
before he visits the vet this weekend.

i did a quick google search for 'blue-haired cats'.
i think he may be of a breed called korat.
his blue eyes should turn green
as he enters adolescence.
i prefer the blue.

bop bop bloop

i can't keep plants.
i had a cactus die on me once.

now that i'm looking at this shot, i think
i should've ran my hand over the chair first.

i want a tall framed print (or some kind of art)
right where the magritte poster is.

where's my pizza?
go celtics!

when it is very beautiful

i can instantly respect a movie
that can combine absolutely gorgeous costume
and set design (the colors the colors the colors!)
with a storyline that'll intrigue the audience
to the point that each one of them
becomes a spellbound child
being told a fairytale.

the fall

if by train / if by trailer

re: how to be unproductive...
ok - your map blew me away. were you always this rad?
its a sweet map all right!
i agree - train would be a fantastic way to go. carefree and stress free. plus it would be an opportunity to meet some odd and interesting people in the bar cars... do some sketching and day dreaming.

as an aside - have you seen the movie 'The Darjeeling Limited'? I spent alot of time on trains when i was in india and this movie reminded me of the train travel...

i think you might need a whole month for your journey. ;)
i'd like to roam around the u.s. desert for a while. it seems to be calling me.
perhaps i'll do some research and prepare a sweet map of my own! have you ever been to austin? i hear that it is amazing there and that you can stay in airstream trailers. woop woop!
