behind it





sooooo... did you miss flash? ME TOO! we went to that private party at thirtyninehotel on saturday night that they had for the LOST cast and crew. shit was DOPE son! don't get me started on the 75 feet of deliscious goodies stretched out for everyone to feast on. and the open bar... *sigh* good times. naturally, i'm not about to be the douchebag running around snapping pics of people but HEY! FLASH!





enjoying our sunday morning and noticed a bird crash into my window. went to go see if it was ok. it was. and it was INSIDE MY HOUSE!





where else would you spend your sunday morning?

but things...





...got better





a different kind of art gallery





hope i'm not breaking some sort of elitist underground graffiti artist rule by showing this. if i am, HEY! look over
HERE!





around the bend it was super dark. was using the flash of my camera to light up the walkway. nice, bloody monster to look at in that split-second. yes, i was kind of scared here. that red is... very.... bloody.

toot? oh, he's ok too. he came in meow-ing really strange last weekend and i was freaked out thinking he was hurt. aw, not toot! he just had his mouth full with a lizard he'd caught. he played with it for about a half hour letting it go then catching it again before i couldn't take the suffering anymore and put it outside. nice work, evil cat.
