calamity is where you find clarity
mothers day is one of those days where I realize/remember that a lot of people I know that I think are oddly troubled actually lost their moms at a pretty young age. i can’t say that was the ultimatum factor that made them who they are today, but it fills in a lot of blanks, and it reminds me how much I don’t know about the people I think I know. note to self: you don’t know...
Film Apprentice: Remembering the Century Dome... →
film-apprentice: When I was about 6 my parents went to take me to see Casper, you know the creepy “kids” movie with Christina Ricci and Bill Pullman. There was one theater my parents went to and looking back on it, it was a real rundown mess. This theater we went to was huge and looked like a stage theater…

taking photos at parties
notes to remember. any girl that is drunk and constantly asks you to take photos of her with different friends, is more than likely going to ask you to delete all the photos the next day because of how drunk she looks. avoid these people people that are staring at you with a hard look when you’re taking photos aren’t likely mad or annoyed, they’re hoping you’ll come and take a photo of them. ...

good conversations today
[First appointment under my new health insurance, my doctor was incredibly nice and upbeat. He lit up when I mentioned I studied film and work in video:] I used to do some filming. I went and got a Canon-60d. I filmed three of my friends weddings, then finally my wife went, “what are you doing with all of this? You’re killing yourself (time-wise)!” I went “Ohhh….. ok.” But yeah, that’s really...
tattoos not in english
if you ask someone what their tattoo means, you put yourself at risk of them staring at your face while you’re unable to hide your reaction
berkeley kids and "racism"
one of my biggest pet peeves while at berkeley was people’s sensitivity to calling things racist, or pointing out oppression towards certain groups of people. Ethnic studies, women’s studies, media studies, all of these are great, and bring a lot of problems to the forefront. Problem is, people often jump the gun on all their claims, and more often than not they have no idea what the...
the difference between
friends and people you shouldn’t give your time. is someone talking at you, and someone talking with you. time to give my own ego a little helping of “fuck it just do it”. I’m not going to do this because I hate you, or because I need to be “successful”, i’m going to do this because I deserve to have what I’m willing to work for. aw here goes.
