more new waves.

When you pull a bunch of all nighters back-to-back-to-back-to-back
You deplete your music stash VERRRY quickly.

So it is during times like this that get me majorly excited for new music.

think of me & gimmie a holler =)

paper trail.

I usually don't like Sardines.

This has to be the most awesome packaging of life.
Sardine paper clips.
I would say this is the most ideal thing for the mess of trace paper
and scraps on my desk @ the moment.

i have duck shaped paper clips.
close enough i suppose.

Paris captured in 2000 images.

"There were many nights last spring that I got very little sleep, I would often head out to shoot around midnight and get back home around six in the morning. The image sequences took hours to capture."


"barnyard" pink mush.

Sketch up, that's one HELL of an ugly pig.

screw you 'roll up the rim'

As my vendetta against my 0/26 Tim Hortons 'Roll Up The Rim Scam'.
I decided to pull a rebellion and go to 'Sbucks'

Starbucks for making up for Tim Hortons short comings.

Don't worry. You can screw up my drinks ANYDAY.

Dear misinformed journalist, shut up.

Soooooooooo, before you decide on writing something and publishing it

It is highly advised that you:

"It's more than just pillows, tassles and oriental rugs"

'The Eyeopener' -- MAR2011


OF COUUURSEEE i used all those things...

Cause that's right, I am currently mentally suffocating your face IN the pillow.
Strangling you WITH the tassles.
and DISPOSING YOUR BODY rolled INNNNNN the oriental rug.

Freakin' goodness.
(phew. anger released.)

For a school paper, you do really crappy research.

If I ever meet you in a client meeting somewhere down the line.
I'm gunna ensure your seat WILL be the furthest away from the fire exit.
The HVAC will circulate once every week in your nook.
&& you will get mental anxiety from the lack of light, location & crappy acoustics.

For the past 4 years, I've slept with my face PLANTED onto
my desk in the studio. So while your drooling face is familiar with the
comfort of pillows, mine is limited.

- - -

OH YA. By the way.
I'm going to make all the partitions in your space
combustable too. I wouldn't bring anything that ignites in there if I were you.

- - -
p.p.s. Clancy Snook is one of the most dedicated hardworking talented
people I know. You should be thankful she isn't violent.
Your fate could have been a lot worse.

Moral of the story is: please do your research before you write.


puke out your cash.

This even made me feel a little uncomfortable and madly awkward-ed out.

Oh. I wonder what his nice lady is drinking?
Mango milkshake? Orange banana Smoothie?

no no nooo

She's ACTUALLY drinking milk with food colouring/
& that's not the best part, this artist sucks that lactose goodness in
and VOMITS IT ALL BACK OUT (ya, that's right) on a canvas.

"Nexus Vomitus" is a collabo between Millie Brown
(the vomit artist. Who could have guessed that career choice as a child?)
& opera singers Patricia Hammond & Zita Syme.

SHOWstudio decided to document this one time spectacle of Millie barfing
out liquid Skittles (practically) to the Patricia & Zita's loovelly melodic interlude.
Talk about putting a real spin on creativity eh?

For those of you that get turned on by regurgitated milk,
you can get this one of a kind "beauty" of an art piece.
You can still buy it for the bargain price of £ 1,500.
(heckkkkk ya. you heard me right folks, real steal)

For the rest of us that are just confused as to why were still reading/writing
about this, our craving for rotten milk on canvas can be satisfied by the
LOOOOOOOOVEEEELYYYY performance captured on video...

h.a.l.f. inspiration #1: black box.

We all wanna escape.
We all wanna leave and retreat.

For that brief moment where a smile takes over your face,
when that giggle envelopes your body,
we are simply--taken away.

ice ice baby.

In this freezing weather, I definitely fail to see the beauty of the winter season.
But I guess, if you took this place to the extremities...
It can be kinda GORGE

Working with an expedition cruise company, Eric Guth is constantly
surrounded with larger than life bodies of ice.

The beauty in nature astounds me.

dreams are just realities in waiting.

"We all have our own life to pursue,
our own kind of dream to be weaving.
And we all have some power to make wishes come true,
as long as we keep believing."
~ Louisa May Alcott

Credits to National Geographic for making a real life version of
the floating house from the ANIMATED FANTASTICALNESS--
(freakin' film made me cry)
A team of engineers, scientists and 2 world class balloon pilots
(so yes, more than just an old man and little Russel)
launched this 16' x 16' x 18' house 3000 THOUSAND of meters into the air with
300 helium filled 8' coloured weather balloons.

UP TIME: approx. 1 hr.

NEW RECORD ACHEIVED: Large balloon cluster flight ever attempted.

The filming of IRL "UP" will be part of the a new National Geographic Channel series,
"How Hard Can It Be?".

Premiering Fall 2011.
Nothing is impossible.
Remember that and smile =)
