mmm: bflo

i thought it would be cool to commemorate my trip to buffalo with a mmm of a buffalo native! but there really aren't any! (except chad michael murray but i've done him and he seems like kind of a d-bag so i don't want to feature him twice)

so here's rick james and a meaningless list of people born in buffalo!!!,%20New%20York,%20USA&sort=alpha

holy crap.

Stephen Wiltshire has been drawing cities since being diagnosed with autism at a young age, saying it’s his way to express himself. What’s unique about this artist though is that all he needs is a 20 minute helicopter ride above New York and after 7 days, 12 pens, and a lot of music on his ipod, he finishes the massive 18 ft accurate depiction of the city all from memory. He’s so accurate that when drawing Rome, he drew the exact number of columns in the Pantheon. His work is being shown at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute along with his permanent gallery in the Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mal.

truth, part duex.

There are two strange phenomena that inevitably occur if I get drunk: A.) I suddenly realize that I am an unparalleled expert on any topic of conversation. B.) Everyone else suddenly becomes half-deaf.

They don’t admit it because they are probably confused and embarrassed to suddenly be half-deaf, but it’s okay because I politely compensate by speaking very loudly to them.

over it.

it has been a super stressful few weeks in the life of me. i decided to (per usual) pile too much on my plate...but i must say, i can manage pretty well after all these years of going batshit every time something caught me off guard.

BUT. one of my super stresses has been related to some volunteer work i do that is church related and maaaaan has it been keeping me up at night and hurting my heart. the drama has been so detached from the actual work i have had to think looong and hard about why i do what i do again. then i surround myself with the kids i work with and reality check back in but DANG.

i've been diplomatic, polite, snarky, firm, kind, compassionate, bitchy, confrontational, passive, overbearing and sarcastic. nothing has gotten through to some of those who are supposed to be in their position due to great faith and leadership. it is bumming me out.

i'm totes not the only one who thinks that church ruins god/faith/community a lot of the time...i just hope to get out from underneath this heavy weight. and soon.

Nothing Big
Song I wrote and RECorded today, well, quickly.

Nothing big
Nothing grand
Nothing useful
Nothing planned
Nothing smart, or at least not very
Nothing revolutionary
Nothing urgent
Nothing hot
Maybe quiet
Maybe not
Nothing hard
Nothing wet
Nothing naked, well not yet
Nothing witty
Nothing wise
No big deal
No first prize
Nothing solemn
Nothing set
Nothing much to give or get
Nothing now but me and you
Nothing more, thanks, that’ll do

go listen to the recording. now. i'm not skilled enough to do that clicky thing.
