"Fuck politics, I just wanna burn shit down."




Chris Cobb, an artist based in San Francisco, has created an amazing installation in bookshop called Adobe Books- he catalogued every single one of the 20,000 books by color. The project is titled There is Nothing Wrong in This Whole Wide World. They were arranged by hand over a 10 hour period, and he enlisted the help of 16 volunteers. Such beautiful results, they transformed the bookshop overnight.


Oh, it’s pretty. It drives me nuts, though. I look at it and just—it’s a bookshop. If you want a For Dummies book or something, fine. Eye the yellow section. Want something else? Something where different editions have different dust jackets and spines?

I just. I can’t. I want to be able to find something easily, and skimming along the spines of a shelf of red books isn’t easy. It’s just crappy.

Exactly. It’s pretty but it’d be hell finding anything.

Don’t worry! I’m sure they thought ahead and created an exhaustive searchable catalog with range and shelf numbers so the collection was just as accessible as it was beautiful.

Now here’s what I’d call a nightmare.

I swear to god once I’m done with this shit I will not move again. At least for a couple of years.



365 Movie Challenge

49/365 “Catch and Release” (2007)

Starring: Jennifer Garner, Timothy Olyphant, Sam Jaeger, Kevin Smith and Juliette Lewis

Rating: 3/5

I do have my limits though. One of my customers bought this movie for me several years ago because we shared the Timothy Olyphant adoration and I have yet to watch it because no matter how much I love an actor I just can’t watch a rom-com, or anything predominantly rom.

I watched this because I love Kevin Smith so. Instant regret.

I don’t really *do* Valentine’s Day.

What I do do (teehee) is scroll back about a week’s worth of tumblr to see what I’ve missed (omg congratulations Chris and Jocelyn, that’s effing awesome right there).

And I’ve been super proactive towards the whole moving thing (I’d better, only about a week to go) and another Big Project that’s been driving me nuts lately.

And I’ve lost weight! Without any dramatic measures, just eating healthy (and not quite as much). I really want to start trying on my motivation pants from a few years ago but I realise I may still have a few kilos to go.

I wish it was spring. I’ve had it up to here (you can’t see it but I’m pointing right between my eyes) with this snow and shit. At least the sun is coming back out, I love lurking in the darkness but getting shit done is so much easier in daylight.

This has been your scheduled update on ME.

This is why I’m angry a lot.

Sometimes I want to write really profound and for-dummies shit about privilege and sexism and all that.

Then I’m like, fuck you I don’t owe you an explanation about why I’m mad at you.

You’re a racist/sexist/otherwise hateful piece of shit.

What’s even more awesome than being sexist?

Saying “I’m totally not sexist and I have never said or done anything remotely sexist in my life”.

If you are this person, I would like to explain something to you. You’re fucking clueless.

I bet you’re totally colour-blind too, you endearing fuck face, you.


Poem of the Day

Dubbed the “BEST CAT POEM EVER,” Spencer Madsen’s poem about his sad cat has been getting a lot of love on Tumblr and Twitter.

My dog needs a dog brother. I feel like I owe it to him.

Words on a Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, right?

In the last couple of days I’ve gone from “I should probably start thinking about moving” to “I’m moving in less than a month, I should probably start preparing for that”.

There was a power outage today. That very rarely happens. It could have been relaxing. No way to do anything productive, just have to sit down and… what? It was too dark to read and I didn’t want to open the fridge and let the cold slip out. It felt like I had been sitting in the dark for forever when the lights finally came back on, twenty minutes later.

I have Pinterest. I pay no attention to other people’s boards but it seems like a nice place to store the hair, makeup and interior design related ideas I see and like online. I pin a lot of interior shit. I was watching the Marina Abramovic documentary The Artist Is Present and had to stop in the middle of it to find pictures of her kitchen to pin. It was a cool kitchen. It was a really good documentary too.

I’m terrible at cooking for one. It seems so pointless.

I hate people who take over 24 hours to answer to business emails. Thanks, but I already took my business elsewhere.

I made a list of stuff to do in the next week (mostly moving related but other stuff too). They say making lists of small goals helps to make them achievable. I look at the list and feel slightly overwhelmed.

I feel slightly overwhelmed about a lot of things lately.

Went for Rosie the Riveter, turned out more Carmen Miranda.
I am fine with this.
