what i've been listening to these last few weeks include the following:

antony and the johnsons. only in the last few weeks have i discovered him but i'm so very captivated by his voice.
the kinks! come on, the song lola is magnificent.
bowie looking incredible.

i need tv when i got t. rex.

primus. one of my all time favorite bands. genius.i'm very much liking bon iver
plus this photo is killer.


super colorful beads i just got from some supplier on etsy.
flat veiny turquoise, red agate, yellow jade, green turquoise, purple jade and coral.
today i started designing some pieces. i'm just feeling a bit inadequate. everything i want to make i seem to not have the tools for it. it's so frustrating.

put a little sugar in my bowl.

my new surroundings. and photos i took out of boredom last weekend. 

when it's grey in la, i like it that way, cause there is way too much sunshine around here.

i love when it rains in L.A. (as long as i'm not waiting for a bus in it)
i think it just reminds me of home and that it washes all the dirt/junk/trash away.
and it reminds me of loudon wainwright's "Grey in LA"
yes, they're a bit blurry-but you get the picture.

you left for school. . you left for the coast when that was cool...

i'm trying to come up with a perfect card for my production jewelry.  
i HAVE to get it out of my sight and get it sold and wore by others.  it's just that everytime i want to, the packaging just convinces me that it's not ready. so this week i will design several cards and maybe i'll take photos and put them up. and have you (the tiny handful of people that look at this) help me decide.
it's just that i have no  supplies here, not even paper. i didn't even bring my sketchbook out here. What in the world was i thinking? 
maybe i can buy one this week.

photos of this week's finds.

the shorts, the truck, the socks and the widows peak. i wish i was one of them.
parker for posey.

heat seeking missles, barracudas, triangulation, throwing phones into the brush, pickles on the hood of the car, dipping your pen in my ink.
amazing paul rudd's scruff and hat, lauren ambrose's gorgeous hair.
smoking hot.
