good times.

i've done this before and i'm doing it again. 

in fact, i will probably continue to do it as long as I shall live!!!  it's yet another ... spaghetti cat throwback!  a very special shout out to chisa and my husband joel mchale, the only two people in the world that read my blog.

i wish joel mchale would read my blog, actually.  god i am so in love with him.  i wonder if he's into eating blt's?  probably.  he seems  like that kind of guy, if you know what i mean. 

i'm starting to compile a very comprehensive of list of food people tend to over-indulge in.  for example:

a) eating a whole jar of peanut butter (let's be honest, people! this is totally possible).
b) cooking a frozen pizza then eating the whole damn thing.  oops.  we've all done it.
c) pringles.  duh.
d) ice cream. 
e) frozen items from trader joe's. 

you see,  people do things they are ashamed to admit, but I know you better than you think.  I know you're sitting there right meow with a bag of doritos in your little paws and working your way down to the bottom of the bag.  you know what?  it's totally okay!

little things.

the new yorker's november 23rd issue is going to be all food related.  how exicted are you? i know i am.  plus there's a floating pumpkin pie on the cover.  holla.  basically november 23rd is going to be a very good day.  not only for this new yorker, but also wax poetic's new issue! curtis mayfield and radio raheem on the cover?  hello.  i'm so into it.

horay.

it's the little things in life that keep me going. 

i'm in the mood for toast right now.

thank goodness for eat me daily i would literally have nothing to live for.

favorites versus favorites.

this is my new favorite video. i like the song. i like the movement. i like the colors.  i like.  thanks anna!

grizzly bear with ready, able:



other favorite!  on sunday when we were doing sunday stuff i stumbled across this flyer.  im pretty sure i got an email about this chick before her opening, but i prolly deleted it cuz i'm hateful in that sort of way.  jkjk.  no, really.  i am. 

anyway. anna fidler made some paintings inspired by the blazers.  it's kind of a wtf situation, but in a good way.  i mean, i don't recall seeing other nba teams with fine artists doing their stuff.  ms. fidler loves basketball and there is nothing wrong with that.  it's pretty epic, even if you have to remove it from the blazers context. 







she has other majesticness like fjords, bogs rainbow and mountains.  how could you not love her?? 




my one complaint for real is that she does not capture pryzbilla's babeliness. bammer.  she has a show at disjecta on interstate that ends on december 20th.  two paws up.

oh ya, since she spends time in l.a. where are my muthafukkin lakers paintings?  i know how it is to have to live a double life loving the lakers and the blazers.  it's rough out there.  especially lakers vs. blazers ... don't get me started.

good news tuesday.

well, not good news but whatever.  this morning i totally found five dollars on the ground!!  years of avoiding eye contact with people and staring at the ground when i walk has finally paid off!  who knew?  things seem to be looking up perhaps.  i even dreamt last nite, which was the first time in a while.  well, ones that i remembered.  it wasn't necessarily a good dream, but it meant something nonetheless. 

i need happy shapes and happy colors.  i found this lovely young gentleman on behance, my favorite land in all the land.   jordan van den nieuwendijk has some nice little illustrations on his behance thing.  i like.  it makes me gleeful and stuff.  i'm into that right now.  it kind of is bwana spoons-ish.  maybe? whatever. it's so adorable it makes me want to vomit!









fatty is sick.  his ass better be okay, cuz mama needs to buy some new music. 

i wants oh no's ethiopium!  just came out on stones throw and i have to have it.  it's longer than the original mp3 album he released a while back.  want want want! 

oooooh what i really covet is dam funk's double album toeachizown.  i need to skip on down to 360 and give them all my monies.  sooooooooooon.  god it's probably so super funky.  i can't wait. 

i'm bored.

feeling the burn.

this morning i was walking down 18th and i saw this dude on the back of a shopping cart, riding it really fast down the street.  my first reaction was that it was a really bad idea, cuz of all the soggy leaf action on the street and lack of brakes on shopping carts.  however, he looked really amped about riding that thing.  then like three blocks later there was a different dude, riding on a shopping cart in the same manner.  these guys have to have been frenz.  if they weren't, they need to totally get on that. 

this weekend was weird, but mostly pleasant.  low would be a nice descriptive word of how i've been feeling.  it's annoying, i think.  seeing the friends and going on adventures was a nice outlet though; i even had the opportunity to eat a delicious pie in the freezing cold with some of the dudes.  yay.  brisket to the dome!

a good friend of mine made my day yesterday and got me something to lift my spirits.  The Sartorialist's Scott Schuman has a new book on the many styles on his blog.  it's so freaking amazing!  it makes me want to fall over and die.  plus, there are many babely men featured in this books which is also quite nice.  we sat in the car in front of the shutterbug and flipped our lids over stylish amazingness.  oh yes.

speaking of things that make me want to fall over and die.  this girl's picture is on his blog from a few days ago.  this girl totally takes the cake with her amazing coat.  want want want. plus that belt ... jesus.

today is thursday.

 if you cold be a sando, what sando would you be?  i'm a blt. obvy. this is an oldie but a goodie (the quiz).

this morning i was looking at fatty sitting on the cat rug and i noticed that he was extra fluffy this morning.  then it dawned on me that i never started my crucial painting project of animals with beards.  i also still have not done bruce riding on a horse like napoleon.  i can't wait for winter break.  i am going to drink wine and paint, the best winter activity i'd say. 

i was going to go to parker's waffles today to get a free waffle and i forgot.  how lame.  i was really looking forward to whatever goodness they have on deck. 

speaking of goodness on deck.  a few years ago i came upon this hamburger dress by joy kampia (the fiber queen!) and i still don't have it!  this makes me sad.  although i'm not sure how i'd feel about people trying to touch my buns in that dress,  it's very tactile.  i know you know what i'm talking about ...



when i encountered the hamburger dress, i also encountered a submission i did for the funbook a few years back!  pony face!  i'm still bummed they lost this.  jerks.  but it reminded me about the bearded animal project and this whole entire rant (except the waffle thing and hamburger tangent). for a little while i'm going to focus my energy on finding only meat related textiles.  there's probably a whole market out there dedicated to it and i don't know about it yet. 




tomorrow is friday.  this is exciting news.  i think i'm going to celebrate pay day with some delicious falafels. 

shout out to anna!  maybe i'll do a painting of washu dripping in joolries.

win.

well, today i was going to look for good things that were meat related and i really didn't have to look very far.  eat me daily had a post on a show the mew gallery in Philly (i originally put that it was in boston,  damn i'm dumb! ha.) is having.  all bacon related!  excellent choice.  excellent, excellent choice.  who doesn't love bacon?  i know, everyone loves it.  this is great.

they had a link on their site to mike geno's meat art blog.  holla!  we probably need to be friends so we can talk about meat's role in the art world.  fucking  perfect. 

MEAT ARTISTS  horay!

they had a photo of this on their website:




bacon magnets!  you can get them at sappy moose tree  want want want!

 mike geno is the shit.

when was the last time you stepped in dog shit? no, i'm totally serious about this!  when was the last time? don't lie!  it's everywhere and it's hiding underneath the fallen leaves.  curses!  aaaaand since we live in portland, there's also the chance of stepping in 'other' poop, which ... i don't even know what to say about that. i was having a very intellectual conversation about this at the matador last nite. since i left the damn house today that's all i smell.  it's fucking with me, for real. 

anyway. 

today i'm way into videos.  this is a portion of shorts titled 'revenge' and it's by lernert engelberts and sander plug.  so neat.  the music is by sufjan stevens.  holla!  their site is right here, son!


Revenge from Lernert & Sander on Vimeo.


their video on color correction is really crazy.  you should check it out!

i'm really in the mood for meat related artwork.  it's been a while, you know?  i should scour the internets tomorrow for something possibly brisket related perhaps?  oooh,  that reminds me.  i found this chick on etsy called hamburger panda who has some ridiculous prints and tees!  one being a bacon fish!!!  she says "This is the fish that bacon would come from, if bacon came from fish."

cindy, let's get married where the baconfish are wild.  if you were a baconfish, where would you live?

sweet things.

this weekend i was very blessed cuz i spent it doing manly stuff with my dude dudes.  we played wizard staff on friday nite.  i totally lost cuz my staff didn't get higher than my knees.  we ate a lot of zza, so i guess that's pretty much a win.  saturday nite we drank scotch and sat on the porch in the pouring rain.  it would have been better if i had a beard and was wearing flannel.  i'm sure you feel me on that one. 

good weekend, lots of rain. lots of thinking.  sometimes ... you have to wait it out for those sweet moments.  those moments where everything seems to tune in effortlessly.  the perfect photo with all of its beautiful imperfections.  i'm waiting.

this week i'm practicing patience and i want to be more accepting of people's annoying traits.  ask me about it.

today i like this:  yuta onada

this weekend i plan on spacing out HARD.  more than normal.  you can tell cuz that statement was in all caps.  going to concentrate on my photo project with mindy.  i accomplished a T last nite, which is good.  now i have to photograph the rest of the alphabet.  it will be done.

11.02.2009

well, hello.

how are you today? i'm doing well, thanks.

actually, my voice is kind of scratchy from all the shenanigans of saturday evening. i was only out for a few hours, now i sound like i ate glass. great. thanks for nothing. my dolly outfit was fun to wear, except the lipstick shit. how do chicks wear that crap? i mean, seriously. what is wrong with girls? ridic. all you need is some muthafuckin lipgloss for reals.

whatever the fuck. listen up kids. yesterday i was a good girl and went to the library and listened to chisa yap while i did all my homework. it was good. but i was totally inspired on account of all the studying and what not. i was researching for this project we're doing about the man with the movie camera (see below, suckas) and i found this guy that is totally amazing and i am in love. again! i know.

Alexey Titarenko is so amazing. all of his photos are full of energy, but they stand still in time and i love them all. how come i never heard of this dude before? whatevs. i'm in love. love love love.

here is his website. there are quite a few series in thar that are truly amazing. so neat!

city of shadows:



venice:



st. petersburg:



oh my goodness.  let's not forget that chisa and i went to toast & pho!  it was a'ight.  nothing to write home to mom about.  but it was their first day.  one and a half paws up for them, this is unofficial since i'm going back after they've established themselves.  i did peep their breakfast menu and alex is not impressed.  we'll see!  their bacon better be muthafuckin tasty!  ya feel me?
