    Been a little out of touch recently and neglecting these here threads as I edit two years worth of photographs in advance of updating my website. Found this one in the stacks and thought i would share it since I haven't had the time to shoot a proper self-portrait recently.


    Et Voilá, moi sur La Seine dans Paris avec pain et vin rosé. Ahhhh, Je me souviens bien comment j'ai été heureux dans la ville des lumières...

    Cat Feet

    My feet and a long cat. One day I'm going to lose a foot.

    I came, I saw, I read A LOT!

    Preparing for comps, I thought it would be interesting to stack up the books that I've read over the past four years, I still have more at school, but that was all I could stack and not have it fall over.

    Comp is next Wednesday . . . . God, I hope I pass.

    Wind Cave

    Greetings from the Wind Cave in Mesa, AZ, 800-some feet up and a thirty minute drive from my house. Anyone who says they hate Arizona hasn't lived here, or has lived here too long.

    @thewaltonsare - The very best of luck to you, although I suspect you won't need it.

    I've never had this much hair growing out of my face before. It's also got an unsettling amount of gray in it.

    The Old. It has me in it's grasp.

    @ sleestak the (not so) old looks good on you. Very nice picture.

    I got a package from the person my ex cheated on me with when we dated. It contained a book which I had a passing interest in YEARS ago (The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and a letter, explaining why I'm getting the book and saying that they and my ex broke up (information I knew since January, when my ex e-mailed me).

    Needless to say, I'm pretty baffled, a bit pissed of having been reminded of a painful time and in DESPERATE need of a house call from Dr. Rum or Nurse Beer.

    What makes it all worse is that in my closet is five gallons of bottled home brew stout that ISN'T FINISHED FERMENTING IN THE BOTTLE. It's painful to look at it at times like these.

    Oldhat: grab the other Toronto Whitechapelers and we'll go hit up some bars.

    Although I'm absolutely not joining in anyone else's bar tab this time.

    @oldhat: Jikes. What is she, 14? For real?

    @sleestak: Heh. Stat is so your standard pose. Beard is coming along nicely!


    I just put new henna in my hair, as it's disappearing quickly and I had some blonde roots showing. (Anyone know a good shampoo/conditioner to keep the red and the shine?)

    I was SO sexy for four hours:

    Our smaller bathroom was pretty sexy too:

    And the photoshop-whoring out the result:

    @ Oda-The red looks really good on you.

    @sleestak For an acting role in January, a director originally wanted me to have a beard with a shaved head, but had trouble finding a reference photo he liked (and figuring out how/where the beard would fade into the flesh at the top of the sideburns). We ended up going with a different look, but I think your photo is exactly what we were looking for.

    @Grease now that I've learned that I can outdrink you all (with beer at least), I can probably pace myself a bit better and know when something is a bad idea. :P
    @Oda My guess? A reconciliation thing. In the reply that I wrote (but will not send, I think) I wrote "Why the consideration to tell me? From either of you? You both didn't give two shits about me when I was being played a fool". But yeah, anyways. blah.

    Hey, the best thing about being two hundred and forty-five pounds is that none of you lightweights can outdrink me!

    i got bored and close-cropped a small portion on the side of my head (which i have fluffed up unattractively here for your convenience):

    i love it; the section's about palm-sized, just big enough for me to seek out with my fingers, but not big enough for anyone to notice. it'll keep me amused, anyways, til i get up the guts to dye my hair silver.

    also, @oldhat, i really want to read that letter. is that creepy? i don't want to make a reality show of your life, but i am baffled by what a person might possibly have to say in a situation like that.

    @grease said the person who fell on his way home. :P

    @allana It's actually a pretty uninteresting letter. Sentences that contain things like "...non-materialistic/letting-things-out-into-the-world phase" and "...not telling you would feel like withholding information" were thrown about. All of which made me roll my eyes and wonder why the hell I was getting it.
