city trip

adventures in the city!

I'm a bit late in posting these but I have recently had many adventures in S.F. Here are the pictures to prove it!
My bud Kelly and I went to the SFMOMA to see what's up. I was particularly interested in an exhibit by Francesca Woodman.
Started the adventure off with a glass of wine and a croissant the size of my head. nom nom!

 This piece was super interesting and contained so many layers and strings - this was part of a special exhibit on same sex marriage.

 I was super intrigued by the room containing Paul Klee and Andrew Shoultz work side by side comparing their style years apart.

You can't have a modern art museum without a long theater.

 Below are just a few of Francesca Woodman's photos. She was brilliant and way ahead of her time.

You can fine more work by her here or read about her short life here.

Here I am with a lovely sculpture by Louise Bourgeois. I wrote a paper about her last semester and love her work. I got to see two pieces of hers in the MOMA.

Kelly and I roamed about the city all day and night. This is Union Square from the Starlight Lounge. After this we walked to North Beach and had an amazing hearty Italian meal.
Wish I could do this every week.

super impressed

by Bicycle Coffee Co.

While at the Grand Lake Farmer's market I picked up my first pound of Bicycle Coffee Co. and got a free delish cup of joe. OMG!! this coffee is awesome! They are a small family run business that hand delivers their products by bicycle only. 

I'm enjoying my coffee right now.. it's jolting me awake to create!

can I tell you something?

I haven't been at all motivated to write lately in this blog. I'm not sure if school has sucked all the creative energy right out of me or not. I haven't been motivated to do to much these days... which has led me to think of earlier days when all I had was time to be overcome with passion and motivation. I'm not talking about a couple years ago, I'm talking about long ago days when I plopped my buns down at the Coffee Garden in SLC and wrote feverishly in my journal about everything in the world. I was young and was filled and intoxicated with creative powers - I saw every aspect to what made the world tick artistically and I wanted to be apart of it... and then again it reminds me that I was young and naive.

I guess this is my shitty attempt to tell you I've been bad at writing in my blog - and honestly, I just didn't want to. I didn't feel like I had much to say. I know that's hard to believe but it is what it is.

In other news.. I've been working to get things together with Oakland Under $100 which is seriously creeping up on me in a big way. Also working on more books for The Rare Bird and I have another shop interested in my vinyl books. I need to focus and plug out a bunch and have a stock pile. Another thing that recently happened was that I was recorded for a short segment called "Wait A Minute" by Jaded Pallet Productions. It's people in the food service industry telling the ironic stories, good or bad. I'll post it when it comes up The whole experience was a lot of fun.

Well - I guess I should get my buns in gear and find that passion and motivation I've been looking for. Get to work

In my head these days:
