"im just utterly confused"

So today it's been one year since I woke up and went to school and sat in my desk and your chair, next to mine was empty, and then there was all that followed.

I basically just wrote this whole thing about laurel and chose to delete it.
it didnt sound like her, nor like me, its just what i felt like i should say, not that i dont feel like that its just not right

the photo above is the Laurel I have come to remember visually, only because i look at this photo countless times a day on my wall, there for everyone to see

this is the laurel i knew, shes different from the one in the picture above (though i do remember her in every way and phase). This is the photo that ive kept to myself, in the drawer next to my bed with other personal items. this is the Laurel who was my best friend. the girl who didnt want to stick around for high school graduation, who hated malibu and everything it stood for and would listen to punk and bright eyes with me. She was the one who got me addicted to the internet, who shook me up and made me think outside of this little bubble that we live in. Even till the last day, thats what our last conversation was about. She was the queen, and a legend for the record.

Nan Goldin

Continuing in the mini series I seem to have started of photographers who influence and inspire me, I decided to feature Nan Goldin.

"Upon moving to New York City, Goldin began documentary photography of the post-punk new-wave music scene, and the city's vibrant gay subculture in the late 1970's and early 1980's. gradually being drawn in to the Bowery's hard drug subculture. These photographs, taken from 1979 to 1986, form her famous work The Ballad of Sexual Dependency.The snapshot aesthetic images depict drug use, violent, aggressive couples and autobiographical moments. Most of her Ballad subjects were dead by the 1990s due to either drug overdoses or AIDS, including close friends and often photographed subjects, Cookie Mueller and Greer Lankton. In addition to the Ballad she combined her pictures in two other series I'll Be Your Mirror and All by Myself."
"Nan Goldin's photographs, which pre-date the 'heroin chic' advertising craze of the 1990s, are forthright studies of herself and friends, engrossed in New York's East Village subculture in the early 80s."

Ever since Sam and I watched Daisies with Kime and Annakim I have been hooked to the psychedelic film.

"Two teenage girls, both named Marie, decide that since the world is spoiled they will be spoiled as well.This freewheeling, madcap feminist farce was immediately banned by the Czech government".

come over and watch it with me sometime!

ben made a comedy
i relate so much to this

Sunday, October 07, 2007


I had told my friend Robert (From CCA) about the movie Daisies and how there is a scene where the girls have butterflies on the walls.

Well when Robert left for Malaysia to live for 6 months he told me he would catch me an exotic butterfly. Being a smart boy who didnt know anything about catching and preserving a butterfly, he scourged the city looking for a butterfly to send to me. He eventually found one in a little case in the back of an antique store. The other day I got a giant envelope from far far away and under twenty layers of malaysian newspaper was my butterfly.

It might be the most beautiful thing I have ever owned

(this is just a picture i found online that closely resembles my butterfly)

oh wes

I'm working on a fall podcast as we speak, so expect that within the next few days
Every year whenever the seasons change i alway get a little melancholy because i want more than anything to have seasons!

If anyone is excited about seeing the Darjeeling Limited, you should ass go onto itunes and download "Hotel Chevalier"
It is a short that is the prequel to Darjeeling. It stars Natalie Portman and Jason Shwartzman, and is pretty amazing. Of corse it is no Royal Tenenbaums, but Mr. Anderson does wonders with film.
