for those who might have heard

I will not be taking that job in New York in January. It required a 2 year commitment which I am not prepared to do. New York will have to wait until April.

I'm not there

I liked it. At some points I was not sure if it was supposed to be a Christopher Guest mockumentary, but once I got past that I loved it. And I wish I was Charlotte Gainsbourgh, she is so so beautiful.

art for sale!

I am planning on selling some of my bird drawings and my gender equality piece at Gallery 110 "Works on Paper" Show on Friday. For $5 each or something thereabouts. Go support the Gallery, and buy my birds!

only 6 or so months left in provo

I went to lunch with Ruel and Jackson on Friday. It proved to be a great time had by all. They are friends that I rarely get to spend time with, and it took a 2 week effort to happen. It happened though, it was deliberate and fun. i like that it took effort, it meant that we really wanted to see eachother.
I think most people know that I really like going out to eat with friends. I hope to continue doing so. I also want to make special effort to spend time with friends because I won't be here much longer. I want to be proactive in maintaining and strengthening friendships before I leave.

you may or may not believe this

but I got to hang out with Joseph Smith's Bible today. Yes, the Bible he read out of when he read James 1:5. I got to touch it, read it, turn the pages, see his name and family names hand written in it, and I took a picture with it on my phone. So cool. We have it on loan from the Smith family to make a box for it. I love working in the conservation lab.

I'm trying to get ahold of a celebrity.

I was wondering if anyone knows how I can get ahold of Lance Acord. He is the director of photography in most of Sofia Coppola's films. I want to study with him if I can. Does anyone know where to start? he doesn't have a website which makes it sort of hard.
"Hey Lance! just giving you a shout out!"

--I just googled Lance Acord email. this is what I got

the first thing i ever wanted to be was a contortionist. i wanted to be one until i was about 12 years old, when i realized i didn't have the natural ability. but i can still dream.

I did not cancel prom. Everything is going as planned. I just wanted to take it off of facebook because it is getting out of control. The Deseret Morning News is doing a story on it, that is what I mean by out of control. I can't wait, it's going to be so good. I love you all and I will see you there. Dress to impress because the pictures won't stop snapping.

show off phase

Alissa told me today that I am in a show-off phase. I think she is right, I have been in performance mode nonstop. Tap dancing, jump roping, drawing, taking pictures, playing keyboard, joking, its been pretty consistent. I hope I haven't been annoying. It's true that when I get attention for performing I just do it more and more. It's a vicious cycle. I don't really mean to do it so that people will give me credit, i do it because it is so fun and i think that whoever is there would like to see it too. Like someone who wants to share the church with others because it brings them so much happiness. I know I probably just come off as annoying or self absorbed, but I swear I can't help it!

stylistic identity maybe?

i think my style might be falling somewhere between tina tyrell and ilan rubin. i feel okay about that. although it does depart from the bright vegas influence that i have not seemed to be able to escape. its okay either way, but i think i will find peace if i can come up with a formula. oh yeah, and it turns out that someone already did my idea of making photographs with compositions based on japanese woodcuts. any ideas for a new orca proposal?

black bottom dance

cruel money

you know there is something cruel going on when the universe makes you choose between Morrissey, Smashing Pumpkins, Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem, and B.R.M.C. all in 2 months. I love all of these bands so much! Would anyone like to go to Morrissey with me? they still have really good tickets left and if I do go with someone I would like to sit by them, so we should buy them at the same time. I have to see Morrissey, I heard that he has been playing old Smiths songs on this tour. He sang Please, Please, Please. Do you know how amazing that would be live?!!! Let me know if you want to go. $45 and worth it.

new post for alissa!

I have been having a pretty good time in Provo lately. School has been super busy, I'm starting on my BFA year and I have to decide on 3 projects (2 for fine art, 1 for BFA) by tomorrow! yikes! there are too many things I want to do!
Work has been busy, I put up 2 exhibits in the last week.
The band is going really well, it is so fun! I can't wait till we have a show! although I do have to work on my stage presence, I tend to concentrate really hard and my face is stiff, or my mouth hangs open. Embarrassing!
I also decided to do Goth Prom on Saturday October 13th. Mark your calendars! GOTH PROM III 2007! If you will let me have it at your house that would be cool, and I need a projector this year. Anyone??
And in latest as in the last hour news, I am having an art show in November. I need models. Call me if you want to volunteer your body/face/self.

too excited

its 4:20 am. funny. i might delete this post because i think i am a little out of it right now. i can't sleep, i'm too excited for school and we had band practice before i went to bed and i can't get the music out of my head. my brain feels like spaghetti by the way. bret is a really good musician, i feel lucky to be playing with him. quinn is really good too. courtney and i have never been in a band and i feel like we are doing well because quinn and bret are so good. it's like learning from the best. i always feel so lucky when i get to dance with someone really good because then i learn to be better, i think it is the same thing with making music.
by the way i was able to add tap dancing to my list of classes, which means i will finally be able to teach my body to do what i do in my head almost all day long. tap tap tap shuffle the buffalo!
laura said that if i were a stereotype of myself i would be a vaudeville star. i don't know if she knows how happy that made me. i really want to be a vaudeville star more than almost anything.

I'm taking a poll. Who wants to see Goth Prom happen again this year? anybody interested? Do we want a new twist? Death Prom? Rockabilly Prom? Zombie Prom? Vampire Prom? Creepy Cabaret? Masquerade? Do we want it on halloween weekend or earlier in the month so as not to interfere with other activities? Is there a location that anyone can think of? the canyon perhaps? too cold? Please leave me comments with all your input.
