I'm so sorry I'm so paranoid. - Ben Kweller

The Swiss boy and I went to Lighthouse Park in WestVan at the beginning of May. It was probably warmer then than it is now. Do you realise that tomorrow is JULY? Do you additionally realise that tomorrow Thom & Garth are getting back from an entirely-too-long band tour? Do you lastly realise that tomorrow I will be earning time-and-a-half at work? That is very cool/useful.

I took my 70-210 mm lens and went wild with its telephoto wonders.

All thrifted.

H&M cut-offs, UO shirt, thrifted boat shoes.

It's really adorable when I see Cyril pedaling into our back alley on his way home from work. With his little helmet on. On his little Free Spirit 10-speed. With his little AA backpack. In his dress pants & loafers.

MORE PHOTOS to come from this sea-side visit.

Getting to that point of cerebral explosion.

Surely you've all had the pleasure of viewing this, but here you are anyway. I really loved it. I'll watch it again with you.

FÖK Portrait Series with Yvan Rodic/Facehunter from The 88 on Vimeo.

There was a really sweet video on Face Hunter a while back, a mini interview with the filmmaker who did this video. She said she fell in love with every one of her subjects and said it so sincerely.

Off for a morning of shopping & brunching with my little sister and then to work. In my new shorts. Even though it isn't too warm today. What's that all about anyway? July is in two days.

Perhaps you would be better suited to a maintence-type position.

I'm still. Around.
Working my Summer (what Summer?) away, but the bills gotta be paid, friends!

For a desperately anti-climactic return, I give you a YouTube video! Of Jason Schwartzman in Slackers - VERY high on the Every Jason Schwartzman Film Ever Made In The World list. According to IMDb I have experienced 10/27, although that includes TV.

What a dreamy dream Dream Boat.

Turns out this is an homage, because I really need to tell you all to watch the HBO series Bored to Death, if you aren't already. I can't wait for the next season.

While we're at it, just going to go ahead and ask: anybody know about that designer collection video starring Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst, directed by one Gia Coppola? I remember watching it in February, found on a blog, and I want to say it was Clever Nettle, but alas I cannot find such a thing.

LORDY I am rambling tonight. Time to get my 1960s nightgown-ed behind to bed.

Doves gliding silently through the cloudy sky.

When my mum was visiting, we took a trip to the Van Dusen Gardens on Oak St.
It. Was. Gorgeoussss.
Hard to believe we went at the beginning of May, wearing shorts, and now the Pacific Northwest is plagued with 13 degree temperatures and rain for days at a time. I hope June treats us better.

Mum, taking notes for her next Art Knapps trip.

My sister and I are heading out of the big city to visit our family tomorrow. It likely won't be that relaxing, but such a nice getaway. And I haven't seen my dad & brothers in a while!

EDIT: from now on, I am uploading photos to zee blog in a slightly larger size than before (more detail!!), so be sure to click on the images to SEE. THEM. BIG.
