im a big fan of showing people that you dont need fancy, expensive equipment to make something beautiful. all of these photos were taken with my iphone. granted, i paid .99 cents for an application to make them look "cool", but im very passionate about showing that its more about the SUBJECT, the circumstances, and the eye than about the technique and technicality of a shot.
some people may look at my "work" and dismiss it, but these are interesting to me, and thats one of the most important aspects of art in my opinion, for it to be captivating and interesting.

"However, while all these albums were regarded as solid efforts, Hayes was no longer selling large numbers. He and his wife were forced into bankruptcy in 1976, as they owed over $6 million. By the end of the bankruptcy proceedings in 1977, Hayes had lost his home, much of his personal property, and the rights to all future royalties earned from the music he'd written, performed, and produced."


bloc party is one of my favorite bands. i love his voice, i think the music is interesting.
ive only seen them once. it was the first show of their first us tour, at the glasshouse. crazy.
the drummer is funny to watch. he looks like he should be making science experiments or something.

this video is from their first television appearance apparently, on jools holland.

its getting harder and harder to find inspiration

little things draw my amaze me-
the way a tree looks against the sky.
the way a sign post looks buried in the rocks.
the way a child's natural hair color looks richer than any tube can produce.
the way a group of guys can stand on stage and blow me away without touching a string or drum.
the way a girl and a guy in a studio are more powerful than any orchestra.
the way sounds can be produced and recorded without stepping into an actual recording studio.
the way i can find a way to make it through each day without smashing everything i see.

one of my favorite punk songs. the whole record is really good.

cheesegrater has a bunch of good Stitches stories. i think i only saw them once, with Guttermouth at this place called the Butt Cave in 1993.

i was thinking the other day about when we used to walk down 17th street with Dead America. how i burned an American flag and safety pinned it to my camo shorts. and how a few months later i was drawing a fist with an X on it on my hoodie with fabric markers. how we dug a giant 6 and 7 in the McCluers backyard. riding in the old bug to the Ice House.

ive had a pretty fun life.
