hallow's eve

my costume's comin along just fine, thanks.

i'm breathing in the toxic fumes of spray paint as we speak. reminds me of the good days.

we should all be very excited to see my finished peice i've been speaking so highly of for so long. do hope the helmet stays on fine all night - highly doubt it..

i also bought a hannibal lector's (spelling) mask at walMart today for fun. it might be part of my saturday night kit. who knows. endless possibilites.

drink for the festive night tomorrow:

Thanks Eric.

tap dancer

If I were a boy, I'd wear these:


Cordovan wingtip shoes from the 60s - one of my most favourite decades in terms of fashion.
Oh, to dream the boy.

fell in love with a photo

came across this amazing photographer on flickr (thanks to M. Skuza)

instant love.

I don't even think I can fully explain the feeling that his pictures arose out of me.
A crazy surge just flooded my body.

Please.
Go investigate.

winter wonderland?

first snowfall of the year.
had to drive in it.
almost swerved in the ditch.
thank god for AC Newman over the radio who got me through it.

it's just a gift
from the polar bears;
they're just saying hello


say new skews

just try it once.

life dreams


college isn't like univrsity
in college you have really specific classes to the course you're in, I think

I'm not going to either;
I'm going to school in space

hm

I'm not sure what their curriculumn is like there to be honest.
when I'm an astronaut I'll find out.

I wish...

I KNEW IT!




I lived my life based on these things back in the day.
I remember, clearly, having a little naked green-haired troll with an emerald in its belly button on my dresser beside my mirror.

And I WOULD wish on its jeweled belly everynight.
not lieing.

PS: WHERE is my Treasure Troll??

rainy tuesday

SUCCESS!

Was very pleased to get to see Frightened Rabbit.
They were sweaty, music-passionate Scottish boys who confirmed why my heart has been stolen [by their music].


There I am, front and center!! (praying??)

i know, it's all i talk about, but...

(Haven't found the time to figure out how to post only the song.
so for now, bare with me)

SO EXCITED FOR TOMMORROW!!!!!!!!!



Going to wake up early, finish my essay, go to school (boo) then run some much needed errands, and head off to montreal. it will be a good road trip, yes it will, i presume. going to visit for the day dans la belle ville. the forecast calls for rain, but we will not let it ruin our happy-day parade!

love love love!

this might be debatable


“We have people to entertain, McNeil!”

I’m a free spirit boy
Let me go
Let me go
into the hills
climb up the tree and
scream out to Mr Moon;
“The best shoe boy around!”

who knows what it meant
when
reading involves words,
involves studies,
involves pondering our day,
involves fallen leaves and
planted trees;

“Silly young lad”

what if...

...real life was a video game.

"Real life" as a video game,
according to TwinkleCandy.


..except. real life isn't like this;

at least, i don't stab my wrist with the pointy part of the scissors as the sun goes down behind a shear curtin in my bed room...

also, I think TwinkleCandy wishes she was asian. JUST saying.

ps: she's italian...
great.

I've been defeated

When you've been doing something one way for so long, and then realize you've been wrong this whole time, you are usually in denile.

IE: I've been writing "as opposed to" like this: "as a posed to"

HONESTLY all of high school I did that. NO one corrected me. I genuinely thought, up until tonight, thought it was the correct way to write this.

I'm heartbroken. Maybe that's not the right word. Stunned? Shocked?

Either way, it's a weird feeling.

It's like being told your mother is alive when all your life you thought she was dead.

That serious.

more banter

the appropriate way to deal when some random e-mail adds you to MSN:


siksty said:
heloo?
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
hello
siksty says:
who is this?
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
frank
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
ALL CALL ME FRANK
cuz i support frank lampard
siksty says:
i dont know who that is? a soccer player?
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
no singer
siksty says:
oh jeeze.
do we know eachother? or are you just a creepy person?
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
i am just a creepy person?
siksty says:
thats reassuring.

siksty says:
i'm about to delete you, is that okay?
unless you offer me a reason not to. ie: our relation as two people on this earth.
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
you talking much
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
shut up
۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
who care to you
๑۩۞۩ Lampard ๑۩۞۩ says:
delet or not shit
siksty says:
good reasons. goodbye :)

what a pair


Can't wait for

those letters in the mail.

Sincerely,
The worst student,
ever.






you're the boss, applesauce

everyone needs a companion.


oh, life

I HATE STUDYING!

I'm allowing myself this short break from studying for my soc. exam to post a few nice little videos.

"Fans - Kings of Leon"



I know they've got a new album, trust me, I've heard it, over and over and over again on repeat on my iPod. But this is an old fave that just sends my little heart a flutter!

Lucky Sam Fran who gets to see them live in Boston. Grr.

Also, this is from about month ago, and I just re-discovered it while browsing my pics. How much do I love her? (http://www.latinsavers.blogspot.com/)

friday night, and i ain't got nobody

Thanksgiving reunine, and we start the eve off pretty strong. Drinks all around, and crashin' lil bro's party. That's how we do, right?


It's all finger nails and faces. cute
x

The night progressed with a jam out to RockBand. Not gonna lie, we kicked those little 16yr olds outta there pretty quick (they were smokin a joint in the backyard, btw. kids these days.)

I call us X-treme 4ce feild. Peep that!


We were really into it.


Our competition:

"Hurrican Jane"-Balck Kids


side note: never start a band with me.

be this:

The pressures of Halloween closing in on you?

Partner costume idea:

You dress up as a hot dog weiner, and get a friend to be the bun..

Don't have a partner? Do a solo-mish as the weiner, and just search for your bun all night!

I'm so unappealing from this angle

painted concrete babies
from the architechture building on floor 3;
let out early with leather folder briefcases
strung over their shoulders
waiting by the vending machines -
these kids conversed over coke-a-cola
and batted lashes
mascaraed to their book bags and pocket holders;
greasy hands from changing engines
under garage-sentiments
left over from table 5.

never ottawa!

Want to find a way to my heart?

Get these guys for me for christmas. Pack them in a box, mail them to my house, with their intruments, and make sure I open them, alone, in my room.

Insta-love.

"The Modern Leper" - Frightened Rabbit


I'm going to have to go see them next week in Montreal. I have no choice.

Hopefully there will be tickets despite my bad timing.

respect, heidi

Guilty pleasure: The Hills

So what if it lowers my street cred.?

Heidi Montag - Overdosin'


haha.
This video's actually really funny. Props to Heidi for showing that she doesn't take herself too seriously. Very Paris Hilton of her!

I love the guy who does the wave with his stomach! Delish.

I wish I may, I wish I might

more than once we think to ourselves


...i'd love to be rocketed into space.

real talk

notice how many times you call someone "gay" or "retarded" and no one around you reacts.

the word gay shouldn't have a negative connotation, nor should we use "retard" to describe someone who has acted ridiculous, or dumb.

remember the actual meanings of words, and keep in mind that your words have power. use that power with caution.

sweaty dance dance party

"Are you guys with us?! Are you with us???!!"

Woodhands.

At Babylon Night club.


(sorry bad quality and guy yelling.)

I think the show starts at 8, even though I work till 9. I first saw this duo from T-dot at the end of the summer at Mavericks with The Ruby Coasts, and they blew my mind. These two nerds throwin down "rap tracks" with electro beats, and tons and tons of insane energy. They got the entire crowd jamming out, and now they're back for another round tomorrow night. Cover's probably 5-7 bucks?? Come check it out before you hit up your hipster bars!

1848

Went to 1848, the Ottawa U campus bar, last night and saw Mother Mother, and was blown away by their opening act The Wooden Sky.

The Wooden Sky - "North Dakota"
(looks like MTV)



These guys were amazing. They sound exactly the same live as they do on their album, and their catchy indie/folk beats captivated me. Simon, Andrew, Gavin and (oh god, I have forgotten the drummer's name - eep! but he was a good dancer, let that be known!) are from Toronto and have created quite the fan-base here in Ottawa. They were good guys, and an amazing band overall.

Enjoy!!

speechless

John Butler Trio - Ocean



absolutely blown away.
will have more on him,promise.

colabo.


I stole your poem instead of sleeping (don't be mad).

I loved the way you said my name
like it really meant "to behold";
I loved the way you held my waist
like I was one of the dolls your mother collected;
I loved the way you spoke those sentences
like you’d glued puzzle pieces together, forcing them to fit.

and no matter how much I tried,
you already knew the emergency exits
were directly to the left and the right.

I still love the only feeling that lingers:
the feeling of being trapped in us.

another night to dream and maybe feel
you speak my name from your lips, feel
you wrap your arms around my skinny hips, feel
you stumble to find the right thing to say, feel
you and I together.

colabo: ian and jessica!

vous etes vraiement degolasse

"À bout de souffle" (Breathless) is a French New Wave film directed by Jean-Luc Godard in 1960. This film absolutely captivated me, thanks to the lead role, Patricia (Jean Seberg).
She is absolutely adorable in this film, adding a quirky, innocent edge to Godard's film. In contrast to her co-star Michel (Jean-Paul Belmondo), Patricia is a light-hearted, take-no-shit, well-established young woman.
I'm in love with everything about her character, from her adorable short hair, winged eyeliner, striped cupcake dress and hide-behind-her-hands mannerism. She captured my itty-bitty heart.






This film makes me want to be in love in Paris in '60s.

Merci, Godard!

can you be my him?

Zooey Deschanel is one half of the duo "She and Him". Zooey is exquisitely beautiful, and her voice is no let down, either. Her other half, Brian Wilson, is an equal talent and not bad to look at either! Check out their performance on MTV canada.



My most favourite song by this duo is "Sentimental Heart". Check out their album: "She and Him: Volume one"

tres seriouse

first off, wish I knew how to work the french keys on my keyboard. I have no knowledge of this.

second listen:
(i don't know how to upload my own playlist yet, so as of now, i'm borrowing from a blog buddy)



just a little playlist to listen to while we get ready for our dance party weekend!
wear your best made-up face!

It's been a long haul, but I'm back on top.
