i have a russian spanish accent

color photos from the Russian Empire dated between 1905 and 1915, via the incomparable Library of Congress. they all possess a strong eeriness and beauty you can't soon shake!

that lass on the left is sure to haunt my nightmares tonight

noteworthy iphone shots: on the road

been kicking it in florida the past week. internet-less time has lead to lots of book reading and productivity. pretty into it. after a few days with grandma and great aunt shirley i rented a car to visit jigga man in gainesville and inadvertently got trapped here due to a janky rental car. such is life these days! but i'm rolling with the punches.

made one last purchase on my way out of town and moved it in style

aunt shirley & grandma chillin

feet in the gulf, first of four bodies of water i'll be hitting up this month

new kicks. brass eyelets!

hit up the thrift stores in gainesville!
zack's neighbor dan snagged a copy of the magna carta

and i got a one of a kind bouquet of baby heads

passed on the potted meat 
hung out with this guy
and narrowly escaped death by rental. 11, count em, 11 holes in my tire! 
now i'm just hanging with weiner dogs 1 & 2 until i hit the road back to grandma's

bicycle portraits

stumbled upon bicycle portraits recently. it reminded me of a similar site i found not too long ago.


the guys behind the project are basically living the dream...riding their bikes around south africa interviewing all the bike people they meet. the final result will be a book, which i won't mind picking up for my coffee table. 

on repeat

new music obsession. stones throw can really do no wrong and anika adds to their sterling track record.  ra-ra-roger that!

yes, this is a yoko cover...but it's the track i can't stop listening to...

go read a book

been getting a lot of reading done lately. highly recommend the following:

this one reduced me to tears on more than one occasion during the few hours i read it cover to cover. great for anybody coping with the death of a loved one or the loss of a friendship, relationship, etc.

who would have thought i'd find myself amazed at the life lessons andre agassi puts forth in his biography? i had no idea. i played tennis in high school, but even if you're not a fan of the game, you'll enjoy this. many of his experiences put some things into perspective that i've been dealing with of late.

remember when he looked like this? i grew up half a mile from where the ATP tournament is held and once caught sight of him jogging topless through the golf course. ow!

be easy

can't stop thinking about the ocean
