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

las lajas

won't make it to las lajas this time round to colombia, but it's too spectacular not to share.

grrl crush

got sucked into parks & recreations on netflix and discovered my latest grrl crush. behold, aubrey plaza! the girl is funny and cute ta boot.

parks & recreation took me a few episodes to get into...aubrey & aziz are what did it for me.

this skit never gets old

i'm too pretty to be beat

love this man's work. pretty much a sucker for anything colorful and it doesn't hurt that i wish i were in every one of the found photos he used for this collection. such a simple concept with a big impact. and i'm happiest that it wasn't done via photoshop!

swing by his site for more eye candy

we started with nothing and i ended up with less

my photo game was pretty weak the last couple months of the year. promise to step it up.

more mediocrity here

lunch break

happened upon this happening

pretty view
killing time in the cold

child's play
pretty sure these are toxic

you are just a trip

been living it up with my ladies a lot lately and with good reason. i've finally recovered from my debilitating flu and we will soon be parting ways for a while. i'm hitting the road (sky) again for the month of february. a couple weeks in florida to spend some time with my grandma and her sister, california for a wedding and then a TBD location in south america where my old college roommate will be joining me! pretty excited...and i'll be even more so if i am able to sublet my apartment out.

coming off a great great weekend full of late nights and lots of chilling with the girls. saw true grit, it was pretty great. also puzzled by a perplexing mystery involving the late night return of my fur scarf...lots of things keeping me on my toes these days and i like it!

did it start with the dude?

...because that would almost not bother me. but seriously, this is spot on...

seniors air raid freshman bitches

on a real parker posey kick this week...and subsequently christopher guest.

were i a casting director, i would have her and mary louise parker play sisters.

grow up

2010 turned into 2011 and I was either tossing and turning, getting sick, or having cold chills when it happened. the flu was my date for new year's eve and he just does not quit! if this is a sign for the year to come, i'm in trouble because last year was already a doozy.

this is what i looked like the past 3 days: a sick & paunchy 43 year old man

a really bad year overall, there were some highlights. i'll only mention those so i can bring in 2011 with good tidings and a warm welcome. it can only get better, right?

last year i...

traveled to 5 countries
fulfilled a longtime dream of traveling around the country
snorkeled and parasailed
swam in the pacific and the atlantic and the gulf (and tapped my shoe into the english channel)
started to get more into photography
became a pretty decent baker
did a lot of bike riding
spent some quality time with a few old and dear friends i don't see often enough
left my job and managed to make it this far without a new one! (but am dying to find the next one)
made some new gooood friends
found out my sister is having a 2nd daughter!
grew closer to my baby brother
made some unforgettable memories.

all the bad shit is in the past now, so ima leave it there and see what 2011 has on deck for me...!
