Bird Boy

coming home was the best feeling ever. it still is. i missed the overcast days and the quiet sun.
the records i bought were all reissues which i usually avoid, cause i like the feeling of playing something that someone's already listened to and i feel like i'm being trendy or something buying new ones. eh. plus its cheaper finding old ones. anyway, i got
The Velvet Underground & Nico,
The Velvet Underground- White Light/White Heat,
The Rolling Stones - Out of Our Heads
Talking Heads: 77

It's starting to get dark out at night and I'm dreading school. Or really just the people there. Although I am signing up for a lot of art classes to distract me.
I'm being boring and talking about weather and routines but bear with me until i get back into the eh, feeling of blogging. I actually do have some good things to post! But now I'm practically falling asleep in my chair..

Italy Review/Numbers - Part 1.

super artsy with sunglasses in front of the lens...


I don't think i'll get my film till late August or early September and I'm kinda bummed i have to wait so long. I hate posting these High-Res Digital pictures. It makes me feel like a dad who has just discovered the wonders of the digital age and bought himself the best camera he can find/is told there is. (Not that there's anything wrong with that. Most of those I've met have been friendly..)

Rolls of film shot: 6
Ell-pees bought: 4
Gelatos eaten: 3 1/2
Jellyfish stings: 5
Italian words learned: 3
Plates of Pasta eaten: 5

Things broken:
-Camera Lens

Things lost:
-Other Sunglasses
-5 Euros

Pietrasanta is lush wonderful and hot. People are generous and mostly happy.
I still think Norway is more beautiful though.
It was such a relief to get on a plane full of Norwegians after not understanding a word of Italian anywhere i went. I felt like everyone on the plane was my family.

Be back in 10 days. Lots of Edith Piaf on the plane I'm guessing, La Vie en Rose has been in my head all day. I wanted to preset some posts, but I waited till last minute and now i haven't the time to do so. Lots of pictures when I'm back! Adieu for now...

P.S. Stephanie at Under My Bed did a post with some of my sketchbook stuff. Thanks!

Jules et Jim!

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

My mind can't really take in or put out much lately but I'm still able to take/look at photos etc. etc. summer stuff. I don't wanna write formally at all. Oh I'm also able to intensely enjoy music without its presence fading into background noise. Kinda miss New York (City). Could care less about being back Upstate. Photos above sum up these past days.. Kids and Water. Bored of posting my own work for now.

I went Riding with my cousin today and we went swimming in a river with our horses and got completely soaked. I took some portraits of her later, horseless, by a waterfall. Pretty blonde Norwegian kid. Hope I can find some B&W film around here or in an airport for when I go to Italy Saturday.. I'm starting to run out.

Listening to..
Rain Dogs - Tom Waits
Vivian Girls - Vivian Girls

Also that awful/fantastic/awful Stones song Stupid Girl was stuck in my head all day and being sung which angered everyone in the house.
Oh and To Love Somebody covered by Dara Puspita, but no one minds me singing that.

Talking Heads '77, Remain in Light - Talking Heads
Exile on Main St. (As always) - Rolling Stones

Loving Cup - Rolling Stones
Nocturne No. 3 in a Flat Major (Liszt) - Gyorgy Cziffra
Gun Street Girl - Tom Waits
Up All Night - Best Coast
Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks
I'm Only Sleeping - Beatles

Pretty much just been wandering aimlessly around outside eating popsicles.
