It's now getting seasonably warm! thank you mama nature! So it's time for the spring summer shit. ya know shorts, t-shirts, glasses, etc.

So i'm looking through my shorts as we speak and uh...there's one pair.

But selling your clothes at Plato's closet gives you $17.25 for new shorts!

Money is not a problem neither is the one pair I have, they are pretty rad.

shitty image from my Blackberry, put you can get what I'm saying.

Goodwill has a flat rate that all shorts are $2.00 which is great.

I'm going to be looking for shorts with inspiration from these.

But the real inspriation comes from a block clubber. Ben.

the rap up.

this weekend had some ups and downs. But in this post its going to be all ups. and maybe one down.

Friday I began working with West Elementary in thier production of " Who, Me? Yes, You!" sketches about social responsibility, by Michelle R. Davis. Here is an excerpt from the play:

"I'm Super Social Responsibility Man! Did I just see you knock those boys' superhero cards into that puddle over there? Yeah so? You ruined them. Nah, they can get more. Oh really? How would you like it if I took your game here...and stomped on it?!...So what are you going to do about it?...I'm really sorry I wrecked your superhero cards"

End Scene.

So basically we are using the art of theater as a moral compass for the youth of America. Which to me is way better than using religion or television. But this play beyond its moral higher ground is cute and these kids are not like Hanna Montana zombies or some crazy shit they accuse children to be. They are all fun and I found me as a child, named kevin with stylish black square glasses and he speaks at the right time and wrote his own skit and he's in like 4th grade, and its sick. That's what amazes me about children now that I am older is how much they can do and they are so young. To see a 9 or 10 year old write a skit and pick out rad glasses boggles my mind in a good way!

So moving on from the children, Saturday will be ingrained in my head for a life time. Because of Runway 2.0, and how amazing it was from the backstage to the runway I loved it! Erin Habes, if you read this blog let me tell you that you did an amazing job and I would love to be a part of anything you do. I've only been around Elmwood for about a year now and the shows I've seen you create are great!

p.s. Shock & Awe you kept the music so fresh, sleepyhead was a great opener.

Moving on to Sunday, well there's not much except team firebrand had some car troubles. Who else would come to the rescue but Nanners and Lar! so thank you to nanners and larry for stopping by the Firebrand before thier ellicotville trip!
In such a fluster of car issues are barely noticed the BRAND SPANKING NEW FIREBRAND SIGN! Um yea Firebrand has a sign the side of our building that you can see if you are heading North on Elmwood! It's amazing and team firebrand is in it as what else, cat headed models! I love and I hope you love it!! Oh and team block club and all thier friends stopped in to say hi today and they are fun while lu lee was passed out on gloria's couch. good times are plenty at Firebrand!

lu lu is on the left. jessie is on the right. and I am in the middle.

thank you mommy for making the sign! you are great!

Happy last weekend of April 2009.

peace !

Makes Me Glo

After running into Brandon at Amvets yesterday I was rummaging through the glasses bin, past the broken lenses and cases found these...

$1.79 and are standard bifocal lenses.

When I first saw them I thought of these great men.

But this is how it really makes me feel.

I'm heading to the optical center soon.

sexual chocolate.

What I did over spring break....

I went to New York, New York. I saw my new school and it is rad. Very peaceful.


day 2 i went to Williamsburg, Brooklyn and shopped.

at Kill Shop Kill.
on North 5th and Bedford.

I finally got to see BK and it is really great.
the photos I took suck but the clothes are amazing.
this blog post is going to shits but the clothes are amazing.

thank you KSK.

It's a bird! It's a plane!

On a lazy Wednesday afternoon what else were the kids to do in sunny and windy weather but fly kites before I left for new york city.

So we flew

and flew

and flew.

We had superman and batman and optimus prime.

Super heroes, only 1 out of the 3 could actually fly I think.

get me a cape and some twine.

It's tomorrow

Great farewell breakfast with team firebrand.
Love at $1.99, I leave tomorrow.

So if I take the L....



see you soon.

i swear.


2 days!

Post #101

It's the Final Countdown

This countdown should have started a few days ago to make it a solid countdown but I was waiting to dedicate the 100th blog post. So the reason for counting down is because I am going to New York. New School, new adventures. (not a title of a mary-kate and ashley VHS)

What I expect to see:

3 days.

Easter Revisited

church. ugh.

Grannie's Kitchen, sort of ok food. But the waitress was showing off her "B" stamp from Bayou from the night before, she had to stop. She's Bayou.

Cousin Trisha's sprawling estate. Good fun with my family.

The Reader w/Big Deal. Just say what soda you want.

sniffling with Lu Lu.

Happy Easter.
