Hi! I posted a tattoo on my blog from FuckYeahTattoos that I'm pretty sure is yours. It's the dragon one. I just wanted to tell you that it's probably the most amazing tattoo I've ever seen in my life.
Wow, thank you! That’s quite a compliment! While I will admit that my artist’s work is quite amazing, I will also say that you ought to go see more tattoos. :P
This is the same dog I fell in love with as a puppy, the one that I cuddled and named and adored. Just like anything that I care about, I accept the responsibility. There are obligations that come with enjoying the perks of our ushy, gushy, who-wants-a-cookie love affair. But after ten years of shit pickup and “No, please, don’t puke, it’s just the TV,” there are days where I’d rather own a goldfish. Or a plant. Or nothing at all.
Do I care about my dog? Of course. But the giddiness behind that care has grown tired. And this is where I think there’s an eventual fork in the road for all passionate people who have dedicated substantial chunks of time to any project or field. (Or animal.) If the first responsibility to your creative process is to care, and the second is to focus on the task at hand, then the third step – the final step – is to endure. Finish what you start. Understand that there are no permanent puppies.
thank you for the heads up regarding the tweed ride pic ;)
My pleasure! Audrey is a cool lady, and rather good at what she does. There are many many many pictures of that tweed ride and others in the SF Tweed Flickr group, too! Oh, and if you happened to click the link to the video, you can see some of those dapper looking folks waltzing, if you’re into that sort of thing. :)
your breath rose and fell. rose and fell. rose gently, and fell slowly. rose gently like an ocean swell, and fell slowly like a late spring petal.
your breath rose and fell just like time, or like wings, or like a nearly silent symphony, while my hand on your chest rose and fell with your swell and your sigh, and your timpani heart, soft and steady, beat in time with mine.
“It’s enough to make you dizzy. It’s enough to make you fall down in the high green grass and call out in some sort of surrender — as if all your life you have been struggling to hold up some false idea of how you fit into the world.

It reminds me of this: http://www.zefrank.com/youngmenowme/
Is it the same person? Am I missing something?
Whoa, weird! It’s the same idea, but I don’t believe it’s the same person. Irina Werning’s photos are a lot more true to the originals. It seems an insane amount of effort is put in to make the photos match the clothing, style, and setting.
When I come to the wonderland that is San Francisco, you'll be my white rabbit yes?
You mean you want me to get you hopelessly lost, run away and leave you at the mercy of crazy people and drug addicts, scream at you about being late every time I see you, and lead you to an angry queen who wants to cut off your head?
If that’s really what you want, I suppose I could give it a try.
all im gonna do today is drink beer and toss boulders
One of my favorite humans on the planet, my wonderful & seriously badass cousin, has started a Tumblr. Her life is remarkably more interesting than the average person’s, so I’m really excited to see her here sharing it. Expect to see stories about hunting wild animals in Hawaii, pictures of things she’s built, pictures of her hot self, and other snippets here and there.
