I recently have become obsessed with photography (probably because of my photo mission...) so every night I have taken to staring longingly at several cameras online. I totally want one of these Blackbird Twin Lens Reflex cameras!! It is based on a camera that came about in the 20's, I love old photography and this light plastic camera can give you that look. The only problem is that it takes film, so not only do you have to pay for that but not many places develop film anymore :(
I also want a regular digital camera! But not one of those cheep, little digital cameras that every high school girl uses to take
her facebook photos with. I want an awesome camera that is going to take good quality, professional looking pictures! But just wanting all of these things is not good enough, you have to have money to buy them and that I do not have! So if any of you out there in "cyberspace" have some extra money lying around (does anyone have that anymore?) and you are feeling generous, I WANT A CAMERA! Thank you! :D

So last night I watched the movie Gigantic starring Paul Dano and Zooey Deschanel, two people I absolutely love! There is also a random and hilarious appearance by John Goodman who plays the father of Deschanel. Basically the movie is about Brain who works at a mattress store in NYC and is in the process of adopting a baby from China. But then he meets Harriet aka Happy and falls in love, I suppose. We follow Brian through out his journey; we meet his family which includes is shroom doing father, his friend who works in a laboratory studying depression in rats all day and we see a sketchy guy randomly following Brian who beats the shit out of him a couple of times (well until Brian stabs him and kills him....) The Pros of this movie are the characters and Paul Dano's face of course. The Cons are: a spotty story line and an abrupt ending. But then again it is an indie film so what do you expect? It also has a lot more swearing in it than I thought.... I would recommend this movie to anymore that likes Paul Dano and can enjoy a good indie film.
I give it a B+

So I have not blogged in a long time but have recently been inspired to! This inspiration has come from the book This is Not a Book by Keri Smith. And one of my "missions" is you take a picture everyday for a month; so I am going to do that and every Friday I am going to post the pictures from that week. I started on September 8, 2009 and will be ending on October 8, 2009! Since I started in the middle of a week, this week will only have four pictures, but next week will have way more! (Could I maybe say week a couple more times?) So let the adventure begin!!

I haven't posted anything in a while, and for that I am sorry. But I fear that I may become one of those people that treats their blog as if it is a diary. The "inter-web" or as some people call it "A SERIES OF TUBES!" doesn't really care that I stepped in gum today which caused my shoe to make an annoying sound when I walked all day. Nope, no one cares. So because of this, and my lack of interesting things to say I have not blogged. So to apologize here is a picture of a kitty :D
P.S. I am still waiting to hear from U of R. Not that this is a diary or anything.....

So I have been OBSESSED with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs new CD, It's Blitz!!!! It is a little more "dance" then the past albums, but is just as awesome!!! The CD came out last month, and I have not stopped listening to it! Karen O the lead singer is crazy awesome and has an intense style. This is the jacket that she wore in her "Zero" video.
Leather jackets don't get much cooler than that!! And I am not a fan of leather (or leatha if you will) but I would wear this everywhere! Visit their site here:
to watch videos, hear bad ass music and bath in the awesomeness that is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs!!!!!

“There will be a rain dance Friday night, weather permitting” -George Carlin
We got some much needed rain today. I hate driving in the rain because people act is if the water falling from the sky is apocalyptic. "I wanna go fast" and I can't do that when the crazy old lady in front of me is going 25 miles an hour because she fears the rain!
The other bad thing is, when I went outside (post showers of course) to take pictures of the Tiny Doctor there were so many mosquitoes!!! I have five thousand bites on my arms alone!!
I do wish I had some cute rain boots though, thus the title :) I am not one to tuck my pants into my boots though-so maybe just some good waterproof shoes, converses are really not that good in the rain!
Sometimes crafts are meaningless and fun! This is a Doctor softie I made based off the Doctor from the show Doctor Who. It is awesome and dorky-I love it! Heres the Doctor and his TARDIS.
