Well, well, well. Iíve done sort of an overhaul on this website because it was aesthetically annoying me. So now Iíve jumped on the frames bandwagon, to try it out for a while. So far, it pleases me more, but who knows, Iím pretty fickle. Oh and one bad thing is that when I switched stuff around my counter got reset! Lame! Oh well, itís definitely not the end of the world.
So itís summer and I love it! It has been pretty f*cking hot in Eugene lately, which is pretty weird. But I LOVE summer!
What Iíve been up to:
- working on my first paper zine, Sheepish Delights, which will hopefully be completed by mid-july.
- reading, reading reading!
- I read Marge Piercyís Woman on the Edge of Time and it was good but ended rather abruptly for my tastes.
- Iím almost done with Chelsea Cainís Dharma Girl which is about her pilgrimage back to the hippie communes/farms that she lived on in Iowa when she was younger. Very interesting splicing of first-person narrative and third-person recollection.
- Iím half-way through bell hooksís All About Love which is the best damn book ever! Seriously. Iím no lovey-dovey romantic, but this book seriously just lays out the facts about how our culture deals with/ignores love, what ďloveĒ means, and how we learn about it. It is SOOOOOOOO good! Everyone must read it. Itís like an instructional manual that debunks myths while it educates.
- I went to see Chicken Run last night and it was great! The lead chickenís voice is Saffy from AbFab! And the knitting chicken is Bubble! Itís seriously very funny.
- My partner and I just rewatched the Oliver Stone miniseries Wild Palms on video, and it is so great. Serious nail biting entertainment. For all you conspiracy lovers out there, this is most definitely the miniseries for you. Most video stores carry it. Itís REALLY long, two tapes.
- I saw Whatever It Takes at the $1.50 theater here in town, and it was pretty entertaining as far as cheesy formulaic teen romantic-comedies go. I love the formula! It is so silly!
- Oh, yeah, and Iíve been working frequently. Which is where I do a lot of my updating because the pool hall I work in is SO dead.
That's all folks! Be checking back frequently, because i'm an updating machine this summer! No, seriously this time!
- Some links were added to the links page
- i've joined a few new webrings
*nothing's here we clear the walk
and we all think we've done our parts
no one talks our actions speak
but all i hear is silence*
