exciting times at the moose lodge

More photos from the November 23rd show at the Moose Lodge in Flemington, NJ. I went to this show about two weeks after having found both of these guys on Myspace. I was definately not disappointed, I picked up Open Books & Empty Pages that night and it's only been out of my cd player a couple of times since then.


Kinda Like True Love

in like a lion, out like a lamb

March is going to be an awesome month for music. Let's look at some things that I'm really excited about:

March 18th

March 25th

outside the wind is howling


35 mph winds today, I could feel my car shaking as I drove to work. Scary.

don't forget to enjoy the small things


Those colours aren't photoshopped, baby. I got a new camera and I might be a little bit in love with it already.

Ramblings and insights can now be found here:

Stick around if you're here for the photos, music and concert reviews.

Be well.

it's good to be alive


the mess you've made

really, really

Alex Marshall

The Cobra show was amazing. Many photos and videos to come along with the concert review. For now, enjoy this one of Alex Marshall from The Cab, my new favorite adorable band. Check them out.

i came here to make you dance tonight

See you tomorrow kids, I'm off.

on the street where you live

Recycling Day

Okay, so living at the top of a hill + slushy slippery snow + inappropriate footwear = almost death.

Almost death, does not make me a happy monkey.

For the most part I love the east coast, but I really, really have come to hate the winters in the past few years.

every breath we drew/just off the key of reason

Self Portrait

Welcome to the disaster area that is my bedroom/"studio". Taken from my computer chair. This is where the magic happens, folks. *insert eyeroll here*

Tomorrow makes a month since I got my tattoo. Yes, it is a song lyric. And it means more to me than you could possibly understand.

everything is alright

Sorry this photo is so lame. I had taken some really awesome ones of a carousel I saw today, during my break from work, and then later realized that I didn't have my memory card in and they're now trapped in my camera's internal memory and I have no way of getting them out.

Today...was not a great day. I hate my job sort of a lot. On the bright side I sent out three resumes, and filled out three more applications. And listened to Even If It Kills Me* on repeat. So that was pretty good.

*I was already addicted to "This Is For Real" before I bought the album but now I'm really into "Antonia", so check that out if you get a chance.

winter is not my friend


Taken on my way to my car this afternoon.

just one more (i promise)

Admit One

Testing out my new flickr account. I'm not sure how much space photobucket actually gives you so I figured I should get one of these if I'm going to be posting obnoxiously often.

Alright, going to bed now.

(That's probably a lie, whatev.)

let's go back to the middle of the day that starts it all

Going to try and do a "photo a day" type thing from now on. Here's hopefully the first of many.

i had a dream last night

Still working on resizing and de-red-eyeing my most recent concert photos, so until then I've got this tidbit for you.

I'd Give Anything For August (Live) - Kinda Like True Love

(And if you like that you should check out his myspace.)

we've got the night

"Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep." - Catherine O'Hara

i am still dreaming

The Union Hotel, Flemington, NJ.

I saw A Lifelike Story, Kinda Like True Love and Daybreak last night. Going to see Desoto Jones for their cd release at the Troc tonight. I have many things to update with.

Have good days, everyone.

i must admit, i'm a nervous wreck

"Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experience." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

in the moonlight

City Hall

only god can make a tree

expect new and exciting things

Watercolour, china marker, pen, colored pencil.

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

you don't have to worry

Panic At The Disco's ridiculous awesomeness had reached new heights. I want some of whatever they're smoking.
