postcards from the edge of VA…


“in the summer time, when all the trees and leaves are green and a red bird sings, i’ll be blue, cause you dont want my love…”

Roger Miller
…ive looked all around on the internet, and this goofy bit is my favorite version…
speaking of Jim Henson…had you seen this? “Time Piece

………………………………………..

anyway, i went on vacation. i saw some stuff and did some things and here are some pics….


i watched a storm roll in at the beach with my dad. it passed us by though. when my father was a kid he was struck by lightning at the beach. he was shot in the eye with a be be gun too, but thats something else…
baby muscles feasting on some tasty waves…


this teal color was following me around everywhere…in the absynth my father poured me, on a door at my friends house, cars and sky and water….

and we took a ride on a ferry, the Pocahontas, and the gulls were doing their best to keep up…
………………………………………….

and then i went to richmond and went thrifting with mom. found this defaced gene autry comic book and brought this Nashville souvenir back to its rightful home…small world….


and we had an early birthday dinner at the Jefferson hotel. quite ritzy but not stuck up…we had two desserts and i ordered a drink that somehow tasted like bacon…? (gin+honey+thyme=meat?)
…………………………………………..

and then back home!
to nashville!
to the fourth of july!
or as ben calls it, Nashville’s New Year….(which is true, i first moved here on July 4th)….
so anyway, New Year’s Eve, July 3rd, Elle and i met some friends and did a little slipn and slide’n

i had to work on the 4th of Joolee so, no drinkin no grillin for me. but the club had a 10million dollar fireworks display, and i had a seat front row center. so it was worth it.
and now backwards….

more pics if you care on the flick flick flicka

feelin 2foot small…


so, this is going to be a pre-vacation post…
just “clearing the decks” of blog miscellany…
also, im working on a mix tape for you…so theres that to look forward to…
although, lately there hasnt been much music i care to listen to…
indeed i hardly even care to SEE a foot in front my face…
exhaustion i guess…a bored, lost and passionless feeling that extends beyond music taste…
anyway this lackluster feeling prompted me to look back at old obsessions…
eek-a-mouse’s “skidip” was one of my favorite albums when i was around 5yrs old…

i think part of this sullen introspection stems from my new habit of watching Dexter back to back to back till 4am…
have you SEEN this show? real deep stuff man, psycho killer trying to appear normal, even though he doesnt understand feelings or selflessness. but he does it to survive…

dont we all…
“silently adapting to the customs of the people theyre watching”
have you seen this? youve probably seen this….

…………………………………….
so, some past obsessions im just now acknowledging!!
THE STATE!

its on netflix watch instantly and i could NOT stop watching it…
takes me back to the days when Comedy Central aired
Kids in the Hall

“teen bulletin board”–charles burns
