SPOTTINGS

My dad sent me these videos filmed via motion-sensor from the fences of our farm(s) and before they even played I recognized our land and trees and grass.

I love deer and venison and look back fondly on avoiding the hunting part. Sort of wish I had that choice right now. Im always wishing for a wolf-ish pet to follow me around. They have a stoic way of being which I could use as some protection. The lure of the coyote call haunted me long ago as I laid in bed at Grandma Jackie's farm. Simultaneous to the howling was mooing from the herd and a hissing wild cat fight beneath my window sometimes. No peace in the real world can compare to all those comforting natural reactions. Its primal out here now, in a different way than I remember. Still looking for a lullaby.

Held together by hours of contact with the lovely and wonderful ladies and families closest to me. Sarah and a Blister in the sun and my favorite Maddie Mug.

PHASES

New moons are the new full moons. After a 12 hour work day, tonight my car got broken in to. Now I sit at home and watch a University of Minnesota building burn. The faint smell of burning rubber and the people fighting above me will certainly soothe me to sleep.

Still, I enjoy this photography of people who think they are harder than the rest of us.

A Declaration for Real Time



Junk


Recently was told that I need to "update my blogs or delete them, they are boring."
This is me trying to connect with people on a different social level, or not at all.
A real time ultimatum.

you gotta skate to relate

Marissa Del Santo hucking her corpse down a few stairs.



This doesn't look fun. Except when she busts her tail off.

This video is crazy. A lovely intro by a total douche and some actual babes. Looks no better than a satire from adult swim network. (not without some laaaame ad, too)



Bustin boobs and corpses and boards and bowls and thats all the thanks women's skateboarding gets...You won't find a better online video of women's pool skating in the last 2 years. For reals, go to the All Girl Skate Jam (pretty cute design) and always remember that "girls rock"!?

I CRY

laughing so hard right now at my sister/family


















found this on my sis' facebook.


also, my dad began a string of emails between my family, in pursuit of organizing a summer camping trip. originally addressing us as the "former campers in the mist", dad sought to place us in a woodsy hostel, out of the rain. after a round of concerns about the communal sleeping arrangements, he offered a nudist-camp alternative to which my cousin Darren replied



known for his unbearably dry wit, his email address is literally "thebickersons@...com". thankfully, by the time the sun is bright enough to poach my family's sacred skin, i will have moved far away from wherever the bickersons join the "future campers in the nude"

skateboarding is dangerlouse

take it or leave it, elementary kids are the new wave.



some parents have argued otherwise, but i cant think of anything less dangerous than skatin on a wood floor with 4 lbs of padding and a helmet, the nurse's office is probably next door. yes, a hefty price for all of the equipment. if we have to think about it in terms of money, than that is a desperate position, and i would speculate that the price almost every parent pays for the equipment to enduce hours of videogame play compares quite nicely to the money a grant program spends on each set of protection that makes this controversial "sport" less dangerous.

and DAMN YEAH!! my hometown is getting a skatepark within the next year! visit the bemidji skatepark blog. the future schralping zone is just down the hill and through the woods from my parents house!!

All Apologies

three reasons why i have this song in my head
1. the weather; activating nostalgia about when i had to encounter the outdoors every day and get messy
2. appreciating the grunge wardrobe; not trying to impress anyone. at least for today.
3. a very long and somewhat painful critique; got me thinking about when i had dreams of being a scholar. now i dream to be back in the physical (contact-sports?) world.

Go here to watch an unplugged version of what i am talking about. I remember watching this on mtv when i was in elementary school. yknow, when i was wearing converse hightops, cutoff jean shorts and tshirts to school everyday and playing rough on the football field. the sun-warmed grass and mud had an embracing effect, for about an hour each day at recess. i remember that the late-melting snow turned in to ice piles on our field that made for pretty harsh scrapes if you really wanted to tackle the ball handler ("smear the queer" - sorry, i said it.) piling up on the ball, on the ice with 10 scrappy boys was embracing, too.

my life was i guess not so innocent back then. we all cycle through these things. i've spent about 6 years trying to convince my mom that my life is drug free, but now i ask that she at least enjoy seeing kids fucked up once and a while...

thought you should know

Every week a batch of emails come in from my dad.
Reminders to "keep my eye on the prize."

After clicking through a pile 20 deep that have been backed up since i started school a few weeks ago, i am reassured that although being slightly over-concerned, my dad is killing it. Links to design forums, snowboard realms, malakye, corolflot, print mag, how mag careers, various videos like prom dress rugby, some eyebrow craze, baby commercial outtakes, "my future", jobs falling. LIFE.

I asked that in order to determine the urgency or priority of his emails, that he write descriptions or messages in each email rather than just a link. Now I get a hint to the content with descriptive words such as "funny", "jobs", and "check this out". Sometimes these messages are more sentimental when really sad country music videos are sent to me and my sister. At least he has the internets to attempt filling his empty nest.

Looking at all of these emails thoroughly every week is trying, but i am so glad my dad gives a shit. And I think by now he truly understands my interests. In all of the online capacities of design, skateboarding, and snowboarding, he seen it.

song-a-day i guess



slideshows are pretty bad, i know.
this song is amazing, and unavailable to buy an mp3 it seems.
this is all i got. unreal love.

just think of a lady by the flowers and a little guy with wings

and you'll be an alright human


by ractalfece via youtube. My friend Rebecca mentioned that her brother had become somewhat internet famous. I think she's right. Especially since most of his videos are responses to some idiot vlogs which I highly recommend.
