I haven't put away all my clothes yet.
Finishing the closets has been on the top of my list for days, but I'd much rather catch up with True Blood.

things you find

Things you're happy to find when you move into a new house:
Forgotten TreasuresForgotten treasures, like the tiny opossum fetus my father gave me over a year ago. He arrived in a plastic Dixie cup floating in wintergreen rubbing alcohol. I made him a better habitation... then forgot about the lil fella until now.

Things you're unhappy to find when you move into a new house:
Miscellaneous & unidentified droppings
yuck. enough said.
A brief hiatus from posting.

Lot's of assembling, shopping, and skull hanging left to do.

snail trail

Semâ Bekirovic "Grid"
video ( 19:00)
I let three snails make a drawing by making them crawl over a grid I drew on a piece of paper. Their slime-trails dissolved the ink of my drawing, creating an abstract figure.

A great piece by an artist that tickles my brain and leaves me with creative snail trail.

*I'll leave it up to the all too critical blogger crowd to decide.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the feedback, guys. I might get it, although the misters says he doesn't like it.

ladders & boxes



We still have a long way to go before I feel settled in the new house.
I'm really wishing I had some of those snazzy Bewitched powers right about now.
The best part about moving is redecorating and art buying.
One of the first things I plan on doing for the new house is commissioning a neon prop ladder inspired by Ben Jones, but first my sexy step ladder and cardboard boxes need to vacate.

A funny thing to do is, if you're out hiking and your friend gets bitten by a poisonous snake, tell him you're going to go for help, then go about ten feet and pretend that *you* got bit by a snake. Then start an argument with him about who's going to go get help. A lot of guys will start crying. That's why it makes you feel good when you tell them it was just a joke.

Hands down the best piece of manatee related graffiti on the planet. One of my best friends, Tiffany excellently representing Florida on a legal wall in Berlin.
Her personal travel blog lieblingslauf allows me to keep a track of her awesomness.

She makes the 305 proud.

kick off

This whole week I'm featuring the work and achievements of my very talented associates. To kick off crony week, here is an open letter to my best friend, the internets:

Dear Internet,

Thanks for hosting my little Art & Vanity blog. If it weren't for you, I'd have never made such an amazing webstie. Through your magic, 1,981 miles away feels like nothing. Fortunately I was able to meet up with her and solidify a long lasting bond carved in br

Thanks for again for being so awesome, internet.

Warmest Regards,

they finally meet:
If you felt a slight shock under your feet on Sunday, don't fret, that was just the earth having a little orgasm when Grace and I came together.


After a whirlwind week filled with camping, then flying 2k miles to Arizona, enduring corporate consumption & mental exhaustion at a 5 day business trip and hanging out with great friends, the last thing I want to do is prep for the real world tomorrow.
I'd like to call in sick and tell Life it can pass me bye on Monday. I've done a bit too much in the past couple days and I'd like time to pause for a moment.
