As recommended by Chris, add this to the list of places to go in Portland. On a budget, too.

Recovering from surgery again. This time, a different kind of pain. Can’t tell if it’s less or more. Was only planning on being out for the day, but I guess I should have learned last time; they said it was going to be not so bad and it turned out to be pretty horrible. This is pretty much one of the more horrible times to be dealing with this sort of thing.

Josh Ritter: Kathleen
My (baby) Yashica Electro 35
Finally called on my poor Yashica I’d handed off a month ago to have repaired, only to find that it couldn’t be repaired and he was willing to return it and sell me something similar for the cost of the repair (about ten bucks). The advance arm got stuck forward and no matter what I tried, it wouldn’t return. It was the original Electro 35 from 1966 and I’d bought it...

Is it possible to bite into a blueberry without thinking to yourself, oh man- now that is what the summer tastes like- that is what would happen if you squeezed sunshine, fresh grass, 80 degrees at 10pm, 80 degrees at 6am, water from the hose, and clear blue sky all into one hardworking little berry??? I don’t think it can be done.
Should I be giving Rock heartworm preventative medicine?

Where was this the other night when we were dealing with the Spanish/Italian/Bell Pepper rice conundrum? (minus the chicken of course)
Irma Thomas- Ruler of my heart
If you live in this town, you know that the Rexall closed down a while ago. We walked by it this weekend. The sun was so perfect coming in the huge open windows. An amazing open space in the center of this city. I decided I’m going to live there. I bet the rent is cheap.
I spoke too soon. Apologies to the elder Wahlberg. He was in band of brothers. Not too shabby, Mr. boyband.
How could I ever have gotten Mark Wahlberg (marky mark and the funky bunch, I heart huckabees, four brothers, the list goes on…) and his far less interesting and talented brother Donnie Wahlberg (new kids on the block…and…dot dot dot…drawing a blank here…) mixed up?

My FAVORITE fooding site of all time has disappeared seemingly indeffinately. I am deeply saddened. Lost my appetite :(
I often forget that there are people in this world who make things just to make things- that design for the sole purpose of pushing things into existance. Yes, they make money. But they aren’t promoting anything. They aren’t selling a product. They don’t have to tell you that Dad’s weekend is coming on the 31st, or that if you bring this piece of paper in you get a $5 gift...
Truly some of the most innovating and inspiring concepts in design that I’ve seen in a long time. Ingenious ideas that really make you think about the form and function of everyday objects and living spaces.

Emilk Kozak, Barcelona: some seriously interesting work work skate/surf culture- but what drew me in was the patterning and variation in the intricate work.
Black & White Freedrawings Book →
Been slacking on posts lately. Had to do a little recouperating after this last term. Summer’s here though and it looks to be a particularly wonderful one. I’ll be taking classes, working the same internship, and also working with a freelance client. Lots of camping trips. Lots of $$ in gas. But most importantly, plenty of s-u-n. I’m in.

Now that thesis is done I have no idea what to do with myself, but I have an intense urge to just do things- to keep going going going. My mind is literally racing and I can’t make it stop.
McDougall- 48 reasons
Thesis is done. I suddenly find myself with absolutley no idea what to do with my time.
Hillstomp and McDougall show lastnight was awesome. Shall have photos and music and whatnot soon. Their percussion was buckets/grill cover/ strainer/ washboard and spoons/ other random hillbilly accoutraments and the guy played a cigar box and broomstick guitar. Intense stage presence; the album doesn’t do it justice. McDougall was a one man guitar and harmonica outfit and I also bought his...
