Hallow's Eve

image

I love the movie "Harold and Maude", I watched it again for the first time since highschool .....I forgot how fantastic it is......

I think I might want to be Maude for Halloween, of course, a Maude without a Harold is just a crazy old lady so it looks like I'll have to recruit someone......

I love Halloween......two of my favorite thingd in the world are costumes and candy..........so it really is the perfect holiday.

I had hoped to make my seven month old nephew his very first Halloween costume.......I was going to make him a little turtle outfit, with a little green hood and a shell backpack............I had such big plans, but my sister-in-law has decided that she is not going to let Aiden celebrate Halloween until he is old enough to understand what it means. I think she is worried because it is a pagan holiday........that makes me sad.........

Pagans have the best holidays.......

Twisted, you did a fantastic job on that voolcano costume, what a lucky kid!

Googdight Guys!!!

By the way, if you have an extra $10.79 lying around go pick up Bright Eyes' two newly released singles,(New World).........

"Take It Easy".......is acoustic and parred down, incredibley intimate, relly good
"
Lua"......is almost danceable (if you can belive that), it's a fantastic mix of heartbreaking songwriting and chugging guitars......

Fun Times


Woohoo,....
I've been reaping the benefits of procrastination too much lately.....
THe benefits being as follows: time to sew, and catch up on my reality tv shows, and veg out (who needs to be productive, " not I" said the sheep)
....But alas, I am once again having to face a build-up of work.....

Oh well....



Here's a picture instead :

image

The faint (pictured above), put on a phenomonal show, all in attendance seemed to catch the infectous energy, eveeryone was in a great mood, dancing and singing........I had such a blast......and left damp with sweat, what else could a girl ask for?

Oh, I know, a girl might have desired that two beefy, shirtless, smelly, blonde females were not trying desperatley to start a fight (you may call it a mosh pit, I call it a fight)........

But mabye that girl would just be getting greedy.


Tomorrow night:

The Good LIfe & Neva Dinova at Nietsches......8pm (I think)
......THink of a pop-ier Cursive, also fronted by Tim Kasher....meow(see below)



image

Hopefully I'll also get the chance to catch the Tratchenburgh Family Slideshow.....
A trio of travelling performers that consists of a mom, dad, and their ten year old daughter.....
but her's the great part, they collect old slides that they find at garage sales and fleamarkets.....
then, they write songs to go along with the slides.....
Mom works the projector, Dad sings, and daughter (who by the way is a mere nine years old) plays the drums.....
Cheesy enough to be Brilliant.....

I believe they're playing at the Tralf at 7pm........
However, I'm hoping to catch them during an in store performance at New World REcords at 5:30 or 5.....I'll have to check.....

SHould be super fun......ya'll should check it out!

poor kitty

image

I had a dream last night that I had to save this sweet, sad-looking kitty from its owner.......He was after her (I'm asssuming the cat was female), because she could play the piano......he hoped to make millions off of her.......
I saved her though.....

(By the by, the mouse I am using here at school sucks)

My goodness...

Well, it's been like ten thousand days since I've updated, and almost as many since I have read other epeeps' journals......
There's so much to catch up on.....
I've missed estrip world.

For now, I have to get started on a paper......but, may I just say:

1) Matthew, your collages are BEAUTIFUL.......(I think the heron and the panda are my favorite)

2) Jesse, am I to believe that you are going to be home this weekend?.....tomorrow even?.....good, I'm in great need of a big heaping dose of Jesse........(SPano, Zach, Kasopolitz, Olczak, whatever you got)

3) Paul, I'm totally amazed by how cool this site is......and now you're a superstar (what with making it onto the pages of the GUsto and all)....and I can say I knew him when....and I will.......ahhhhh , celebrity by association

4) Really, those collages are lovely....

THat's all for now, I have work to do and naps to take.......

zzzzzz

AAAAAAHHHHH, I forgot how much I loved the sketch feature.......It makes a journal entry much more satisfying.......I'm not much of a word person.

Not much to wite about really,

Today, I made the mistake of sitting next to a gentlemen with a massive poof of hair.
He was writing a letter to his Spanish girlfriend (in Spanish too), I was quite impressed....he hardly opened the Spanish/English dictionary by his side.
All the while he was writing he was twisting and digging and just generally disturbing his curly moptop.
.....strands, and at times small clumps of hair floated down to the table, landing inches from my hand.
What does one do in such a situation?...
I tried to put as much distance between myself and the hair-puller, but you can only lean over so far before you start to creep out the girl next to you,
So I just dealt with it......
Not at all pleasant though.

Schoolie School School

First day of classes.....not much to say.
My class schedule is all screwed up......but it always works out so no worries I guess.
I'm taking a class called "War and Postmodernism".......our assignment for Wed. is to research postmodernism and be able to define (or at least describe it)
.....I was under the assumption that postmodernism was this incredibley abstract yet ridiculously multi-layered concept.........understand it by Wed....yay, that's gonna happen....
so if any of you thinkers have any thoughts on the subject (Terry, Ajay, Holly,etc) I would appreciate your input........

Crazy Crazies

image

And that's why Laura will always be one of my favorite people.
Her improptu performance at Mr. Goodbar brought me within seconds of peeing my pants.........apparently the bouncer was having a similar problem as he reprimanded her behavior "THis is not a jungle-gym"..........
........I guess not, now a skanky bar designed for beer soaked bumpin' and grindin', that's a whole different story......

R.S.V.P. Sades

Goodbye Sweet Sades, you've served us well.......the drives and the jumps,
the laughter and the fear you evoked.


image

And poor sad Mike.....the night before he said his final goodbyes to Sades......:(

Thank You Jessboberino

Ahh yes, thanks to the most terrific host this side of the Mississippi, my trip to D.C. was a blast. Here are some visual highlights:


image

Nothing says tourist like a bright blue Smithsonian Institute poncho........travelin' round town like little slippery smurfs......



image

Besides the massive amount of "oohing and aahhing" over monuments and buildings we also got the chance to catch a few shows. David Dondero (pictured above) opened for the Good Life. He was terriffic, in fact the whole show was amazing.......I apologize to Jesse for my "superfan" behavior......



image

Tim Kasher of the Good Life.........swoon.


image

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists.......fun, fun, fun


image

Thanks for the hospitality Jesse, you're the BEST!!!!!!
