alex is brilliant and funny and witty and beautiful and kind and magical. I miss having long conversations about dumb shit on her porch, and I miss working together, and I miss getting wired on coffee at work until we decide that we're over it and start getting drunk. helluva rad lady, and I'm happy that she's in my life. total babe, too.
I'll never be as prolific or as good at it as alice is, but I'm up to the challenge. bbqin.
and also, I have a lot to say about this girl, but I want to wait until there's a picture with which to help me paint the picture completely, and these just aren't they.
once upon a time, there was a band, featuring the singer of a band called chased by bees. but that dude's not that important, the other dude in bionic commando, jerry, is the important one. i saw that show, met jerry, talked about atari nervously in the parking lot, and we formed a band. that didn't die for like, 6 years. they found my naked corpse face down in the snow was a really large part of my life, and jerry was my partner in crime. over hill and dale and all the way to cincinnati. hella records later, and I finally split, but I still really appreciate the times that it existed. good times, buddy.
ha. we went to a bbq. I took a picture like alicia would, at least, I think it would be a picture similar to alice. who else would take a picture of a jar of wine? then I took pictures of alice. they didn't come out that well. but I like the jar o wine.
aside from being the proud owner of an el camino, jason also an amazing doughnut career that will lead to the love and admiration of fat people everywhere. also a fine singing voice and a sweet mustache.

so, I got a new camera. mamiya/sekor 500TL. 50% black tag special, like $12 and change. I shot a roll of 35mm c41 color kodak film, just to see what happened. lots of dark pictures on purpose, to see what's up. all of them are gonna be tagged ROLL ONE. check it, I'm pretty stoked.

lazy photographer that I am, I just waited for friends to sit down, then took pictures. matt smith: I can't tell if matt spent too much time on a boat, or too little. really. he's in his head too much, if you ask me, and he should spend less time wondering why things work, and more time being amazed by the wonder that things work at all. brendan barrans: I tried to fight him the first time I met him. I know this because he brings it up when he's wasted. I suppose I'll never live it down, but fair to say, that brendan's internet presence is fight worthy. when all is said and done, I enjoy hanging out with him a lot, and I feel like he's a really good human being. I do try to avoid bringing up my leftist pinko revolutionary anarchist rhetoric into the conversation, as it's much more fun to talk about awesome movies and video games and fun things. plus, no one wants to talk about anarchy.
I had a house party. my parents were gone in utah. why would you leave a 17 year old around if not because you wanted him to have a party? at any rate, I made out with a girl, with this ep on repeat in my cd player. it was about bremerton. so bremerton has a spot in my heart. here's what it looks like getting on the ferry to go there. my friends are in the astrovan.

this actually happened before the rally, but I figured I'd keep all the rally whatnot in the same spot. I got a CHINON though I don't have it in front of me to tell the model. here's the best pics I got from it's first roll, including one I took using the timer! it still works! love it, so much. thank you goodwill for the $5.00 camera that is actually 20 times better than the SPECIAL MOMENTS. now I just have to get better with the lens, as a lot of shots came out blurry as fuck. still, I'm digging it so far.
monday after the rally, I got out of work early and hung out with some remaining creatures of the loin. it was really the funnest day. not the best pictures, but here's flynn getting tattooed, syriah in the middle of a bummer real talk story (those are some real talk eyes), and ciao and ed getting awesome.
