some dream things

mood: The Cranberries' Dreams My high school French teacher was the most glamorous, passionate, unsparing, and intense person I've ever known (and I realize now has been the template for a lot of how I try to be in the world). Among the things I remember about her: • She wore a different fragrance for each season; • When we studied a p...

OOTD + supporting indie film

every day is halloween I put on an outfit this morning that I thought was a feelin-myself, fun-girl, girl-about-town look. Black long-sleeve shirt, gold chain, blue jeans—pretty standard stuff?? But then halfway through the day Peter innocently asked to take a picture of me and it turned out I was just cosplaying the one, the only, ⛰th...

book wishlist

I'm beginning to have a moderate Tsundoku/book-hoarding problem, so I've decided to *stop* buying books willy-nilly and to *start* a book wishlist (side note: isn't it too bad Indiebound discontinued their wishlist feature?). From here on out, I can work my way through my book wishlist only after I've really read my way through my pile...

Maybe not everything, but there are so many closed doors that I'd like to know what it's like behind, so many dynamics I would never be privvy to that I'd like to see for myself, so many dynamics that I am privvy to that I'd be curious ...

crumb

a documentary that had been on my list for around 10 years, I finally found my way to it recently. A complex portrait of the brilliant and problematic artist R. Crumb: Robert Crumb aka R. Crumb, a cartoonist most active and known for his work in the '60s and '70s. A documentary made by Terry Zwigoff over the course of a reportedly angu...
