these are from the very cool neverending polaroid project done by bob nanna of braid back in the day. each person photographed is holding a polaroid picture of someone else thus, a neverending polaroid. per the subjects, ok great calls it "a virtual who’s who of 90’s/early 2000’s indie rock." thanks for the link tara! see all the pictures here.
i got so excited when i saw the book "things drunk people say" at urban outfitters the other day! i just wanted to shout out "my boyfriend is in this book!" haha. big thanks to katy g for getting everyone involved. photo 1 is katy's work, photos 2 & 3 are sean's and photo 4 is a karen & ashley hazen collaboration. lots more where that came from in the book. get a copy for $15.
never got around to giving marisa props on her adorable spread and tasty success dishing out her homemade cupcakes at last month's first friday celebration & cupcake eating contest at anomoly in 5 pts! how adorable is her new logo, business cards & boxes!?! i must also give love to emily for hosting, and my native sun co-workers joey, meghan and labresha for competing in the contest. i have a fun bunch of friends :)
as an official correspondent for jiffyfeet.com i just snap the pictures when i see them, but the real magic is in the crafty captions created by "lonnie lonnington".
"Either this kid had a friend who had a pigs nose and wore an old time bell hop hat or this tattoo artist really messed up."

sean said this post on boner party reminded him of me, and that makes me feel awesome and lucky to have such a cool boyfriend. xoxo.
THE GUIDE TO BEING SO CHOICE aka How Sloane Peterson from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off Taught me how to be an Awesome Girlfriend.
Get along with his friends if you don’t get along with his friends you are done. seriously. That is number 1. Even if you think his friends are uptight weirdos or hypochondriac freaks, HEY, he is friends with them for a reason, so cut the shit. You’ve probably got some weird and crappy friends too…
Rein him in, but only when necessary you are his girlfriend, not his mother. If he wants to sing to the city on a giant float, let him do it. He’s a big man and he can deal with the consequences. You can nicely remind him, Look, if you do that there might be trouble, but if you throw a bitch fit and give him the silent treatmeant you will look fucking retarded when he has a new girlfriend on his arm from the impressive stunts he’s pulled.
Be funny “He’s licking the glass and making obscene gestures with his hands.” simple as that.
Be confident Look, one of the reasons Ferris loved her was because she was cool and classy lady, she didn’t stress. She uttered the words and believed “He’s gonna marry me.” She probably knows if her boyfriend was running through a backyard and saw 2 girls tanning he probably would stop and say hello, but she also knows that he would spend hours of stress and risk his neck to get her out of school to just see her. Relax. You have him. He’s not going anywhere, and if he talks to other girls who the fuck cares YOU are the one he wants to marry.
Say Eloquent Shit did Sloane ever use the word “like” as much as you do in your daily conversation? No. Drop the habit that makes you seem like a dumb valley girl and trade it for stellar vocab terms like “warmth & compassion” and “devastatingly handsome.” Once you’ve mastered talking like an adult, you’ll be able to spew pearls of poetry like “The city looks so peaceful from up here…”
Pack lightly ever notice how tiny Sloane’s purse was? The bigger the purse, the lamer the girl. Its called baggage for a reason.
Be able to keep up with the boys Hey, if you’ve got cramps, take a fucking midol and strap in. You don’t ever wanna be the girlfriend who is a drag and never wants to go out. A girl who can say she cruised with the top down in a convertible, swung by the Stock Exchange, and took in a Cubs game all in one day, is sorta girl who you wanna keep around.
Look badass in a jacket with fringe

happy 85th birthday to "funny grandpa" as my friends and i like to call him. to me, grandpa dugan is carvel ice cream with my cousin chantele, singing neil sedaka in his cadillac, playing the putting green at the golf course by my grandparents old house, the phrase "get a job" which he will yell at anyone ie. if you cut him off in traffic or tell him he's wrong about something - doesn't matter that you actually have a job, and adorable grandpa dance moves.
