Sugar and spice in everyday life

Screen Shot 2014-05-06 at 11.35.13 PM

Getting older and the days are starting to blend into each other.

I’m trying to add some jazz with (feel free to join):

  • The End of Capitalism (As We Knew It): A Feminist Critique of Political Economy
  • Vice: New & Selected Poems by Ai (Read 20 Year Marriage for taste.)
  • Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame, Selected Poems 1955-1975 by Charles Bukowski (“all your chinaware crashing to the / kitchen floor, your girl will enter / and you’ll be standing, drunk, / in the center of it and she’ll ask: / my god, what’s the matter? / and you’ll answer: I don’t know, I don’t know …”)
  • The everything bagel with farmer’s market cheese from Marla’s Bakery
  • Thinking about collective liberation
  • Thinking about my place in collective liberation
  • 45-minute bus rides to work
  • Thoughts about my privilege
  • Daydreams of making out with Mac Demarco while he’s wearing lipstick
  • Dreams about my next weekend road trip to Los Angeles
  • Attempting to make #TushTuesdays a regular hashtag on Instagram
  • #selfie art show with @alecmolloy
  • Amazon Prime
  • Enjoying my old Russian professor in Data Analysis
  • Sitting on my couch, trying to figure out how to use a DVD player so I can watch my box set of Seinfeld
  • Wishing that I were Megan Amram
  • Anxiety about getting priced out of my apartment in San Francisco
  • Anxiety about paying bills
  • Anxiety about parking
  • Making dinner for friends
  • Learning about good coffee, good food with our new Dignitá cafe, and my bad ass team
  • Jiving to Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city all over again

What about you? What are you reading? What are you thinking about? What keeps you up at night?

I’m keeping all the old themes, I’m keeping my loose ends

Something peculiar began to happen, a humming in the neighborhood that she could no longer ignore. She had to go outside; she no longer wanted to lay there on her cold bathroom floor, while the silence peeled away at her skin. She would rather be dead, rather be dead, so help me God! she thought. She contemplated screaming, but went out to the porch and pulled out a Pall Mall, the kinds that her father had smoked during the war, and watched her neighbor through the window, a young Cambodian girl dancing in the living room. What a beautiful girl, she was! Such golden, olive skin, with thin, bruised gangly legs that ended in white ankle socks.

Can’t nobody love you, like I’m loving you right now

The Zombies – Can’t Nobody Love You

I’ve been running back and forth from the valley to downtown LA, and everything in between, visiting show rooms, seeing shoots, and making shit happen. After hours, it’s always a pleasure to see familiar faces in familiar places. I finally got a chance to take a breather today, to meet up with my good friend slash pop star Junius Frey for a shoot. After playing around with various Jeffrey Campbell platforms, we walked across the street to this apartment complex to take some outfit photos. And then it hit me how much I loved and missed LA, because only in LA do these gems exist – a castle in the middle of Hollywood. It’s been so good to be back.

Listen now
Sam bought you cake and ice cream
Called you cherry pie
Ray Charles called you his sunshine
But you’re the apple
Apple of my eye, oh

Can’t nobody love you
(Can’t nobody love you)
Like I’m loving you right now
Cause they don’t know how to love you
Like I do
