Trying to not try, someone stop Kanye
There has been some buzz at work over the Kanye performance on SNL. Make no mistake, I found his performance on both songs to be absolutely dismal. David Berman’s claim that “all my favorite singers couldn’t sing” rings especially true for some of my favorites, but the underlying truth to those performers is a believability. Kanye’s off-key, vocoder synthesized...
The economy is so screwed. I honestly cannot believe how terrible things are looking. For anyone that was sceptic that change was unnecessary I think it is crystal clear that our country cannot continue down the path it is on. January twentieth cannot come quick enough.
it’s freakin cold out today. i’m still sick.
god help the fem-suit
It has long been a belief of mine that the common female business suit prevalent in areas of manhattan, is both an inferior model of it’s predecessor, the male business suit, and a degrading adaptation. The larger commentary revolves around the immense number of ill-fitting, poorly designed suits present in the greater population of New York City, but I have personally taken notice to a more...
I’m nearing the end of my letterpress class at SVA…total finished pieces so far: zero. I have such an intense work flow at my job.

There is something nice about getting back to the basics of printing, with no demand for output, just a focus on process. I have devoted much of my time to...
Please Explain Britney Spears
What the hell is wrong with pop music? I turned on Good Morning America today and they had an Britney Spears “expert” talking about how Britney was now reformed and making a comeback.

Cut to commercial, back with...
I haven’t seen my roomates since tuesday (girlfriend + cat)…holidays apart are both stupid and stupid.
It snows a lot in Western New York. It’s pretty cold today and the fluffy white stuff is blanketing the backyard. Snow is weird in that I enjoy seeing it but instantly regret it. My dad and I drove my grandmothers home to the southerntier, we listened to Hank Williams and looked for a store with oysters along the way. We ate venison for breakfast.
For the number of times I have flown between JFK and Buffalo, this time feels different. I haven’t been back to Buffalo since I moved away after a few short months of living there. It’s been about 9 or 10 monthes and my trip back felt eerily familiar and somehow new. I guess I always associated Buffalo with home and stepping out the plane at the airport felt like the first step through...
I'm on this!
Okay I’m here. There’s no time like the present. What better afternoon to start documenting my life than a day before fleeing to the snowbelt to convalesce in the land of dial-up and nap inducing home cooking.
