fall colors

We drove up Boreas Pass with Seth & Holly yes­ter­day to look at the awe­some fall col­ors. I think we were about a week too late for the peak of aspen sea­son but they were pretty great any­ways. I love the smell (eau de rot­ting leaves)…

Also, I edited these pho­tos while lis­ten­ing to “Songs in the Key of Life” on the record player which is prob­a­bly why they look so warm & happy.

Burning Man / Secret Passage

Awkwardly Beautifully Young (gpoy)

Ear­lier today my friend K posted a cou­ple of scanned pho­tos of me from high school on Face­book. I feel like I’m just now able to come to terms with the awk­ward young per­son I was… And so I scanned a few of my own.

I used to cringe about my super androg­y­nous phase. Truth­fully, I think it’s just because it also hap­pens to coin­cide with a time in my life where I wasn’t always very happy. Many of these pho­tos rep­re­sent good times, tho, espe­cially the ones in Ice­land and in Mel­bourne. I think I was actu­ally a pretty cute lit­tle boi­girl most of the time and I made it thru teenage and young adult­hood with­out being sucked into the fem­me­beau­ty­con­sumer­ma­chine, which is kind of neat.

Self Por­trait, 2000.

 

Elven blurry chil­dren, 1997.

 

Red Rocks, 1999 or 2000ish.

 

Ice­land horse trekking, 1999.

 

Mel­bourne, 1996.

 

Band photo shoot, 2001. We are try­ing to look very seri­ous here but if I scanned the out­takes (which you could not pay me a mil­lion dol­lars to do!) you could see how much we were goof­ing around.

I haven’t been dream­ing a lot, so instead I made a pic­ture of a camera:

bitchface

Um so even though I just turned 32 and am prob­a­bly tech­ni­cally too old, I totally love to read Tavi at style rookie and her new project, Rookie, a sort of Sassy-esque* online mag for teenagers.The Octo­ber issue had a DIY sec­tion on how to bitch­face, and I decided to try it out for myself. Here are my results.

The Una­mused

Note that I am not sure my glasses are com­pat­i­ble with bitch­face. Also I couldn’t stop laugh­ing on this pose. I appar­ently have trou­ble keep­ing a straight/bored face.

Lit­tle Miss Muriel Kitty gave it a try, too.

The Repulsed

I sort of just look angry. Also, I have trou­ble with inde­pen­dent con­trol over my eye­brows. This one was def­i­nitely the most chal­leng­ing. I’m also not sure I have mas­tered the smize.

The “Is Any­one Else Hear­ing This”

I pretty much rocked this one.

The “Really??”

Some Bitch­face With Hands Poses

I do think the hands add some believ­abil­ity for those of us who don’t have a lot of facial control.

This next oh-so-attractive photo was inspired by my first cre­ative direc­tor Kent, who used to make this face in meetings.

Welp, that’s about it! I rate myself a 6.4 at bitch­face. I’d bet­ter keep practicing.

*It should be noted that I was never a Sassy reader. I’m not sure why — maybe I was a wee bit young? I did read Sev­en­teen which was mostly deplorable but occa­sion­ally had arti­cles about Drew Bar­ry­more, who I was obsessed with.

auspicious

Today because it was my birth­day I had a cup of Turk­ish cof­fee and when I was done I read my for­tune in the bot­tom of the cup. Here is what I saw:

auspicious coffee

An owl, two kit­ties, a pony, a hawk, a genie, and an alli­ga­tor on the beach. Quite aus­pi­cious indeed.

Last Day Of Magic / SX70

moments

There is some­thing about sum­mer light that makes you more aware of the lit­tle moments, like July daisies, or clothes hang­ing on the line.

life like weeds

Life Like Weeds
Mod­est Mouse

in this life like weeds

And in the places you go, you’ll see the place where you’re from.
And in the faces you meet, you’ll see the place where you’ll die.
And on the day that you die, you’ll see the peo­ple you met.
And in the faces you see, you’ll see just who you’ve been.

in this life like weeds

In this life like weeds, in this life like weeds.
Eyes need us to see, hearts need us to bleed.
In this life like weeds, you’re a rock to me.
I know where you’re from, but where do you belong?
In this life like weeds, you’re the dirt I’ll breath.
In this life like weeds, you’re a rock to me.

in this life like weeds

All this talk­ing all the time and the air fills up, up, up.
Until there’s noth­ing left to breathe,
And you think you feel most every­thing.
And we know that our hearts are just made out of strings
To be pulled, strings to be pulled.

in this life like weeds

So you think you’ve fig­ured out every­thing,
But we know that our minds are just made out of strings
To be pulled, strings to be pulled.

in this life like weeds

All this talk­ing all the time and the air fills up, up, up.
Until there’s noth­ing left to breathe,
Up until there’s nothin left to speak.
Up until the data parts in space.

in this life like weeds

Best of 2009 #11: Place

This year, my best place was Den­ver. Between explor­ing dif­fer­ent parts of town for book­club meet­ings and spend­ing a lot of time down­town with Meg & Dustin, I feel like I redis­cov­ered my city.

On a recent photo expe­di­tion in the Baker Dis­trict near Fancy Tiger, I cap­tured some of the tex­tures of Den­ver (click photo for more).
