I control all.

I'm watching that video with Jeremy Klein and skate talk bob. Now they're arguing about Smiths VS Morrissey. I agree with Jeremy that Smiths are better. Everyone rules except for Mike Joyce. He's cool,but you know. It's not like The Cribs are any better though.

Bob has a good music taste.
His gun shot was hilarious.
Good game of cock grab.

Fuck,I worked on Feb 1st at 8. Can't watch it. whatever.

Meet the Fockers in hungarian? How is that last name still gonna be funny to Hungarians or whatever. Or is it close sounding to a hungarian bad word.

That photo, ed skating in chucks before cons were made. cool.

Budapest looks dark and cold.

ugggh,I don't want to go to work. but I like money, and they're going to give me some money today.

Budapest looks amazingly similar to vienna, to where I have to return to tomorrow. You californians don`t know how good you have it.
I'm sure every young hungarian learns english in school(poor older ones had to learn russian I guess) only about 10 million people speak hungarian, so english is a must. Funny europe with it's 25+ languages.
S van, I try to not become famous for wasting all my inheritance... There is a strong chance I have to move to düsseldorf for work pretty soon.

Kissing statues is sexy but definitely not sanitary.

How many people kiss a Ronald McDonald statue on the daily.

"If you got the hustle, then I have the muscle and If I have the muscle that means this is Dussel, dorf!"
What do you guys know about Dusseldorf?
Royal, going to D'dorf mostly means Media, right?
Or Fashion.

If you have any questions, you know where my office's at.

Is that like the equivalent of Mall grabbing to Skateboarding as Indifference to those links is to photography?

I'm just some asshole with a blog. Whatevs.

I totally went to some art galleries after work. It was totally crowded everywhere, people would make eye contact with me all weird since I didn't have anybody with me to focus on. Saw lots of cute ladies i'd never talk to.
I pretty much ruled it today.
Now I'm on the innuh-net. I ramble more when I'm here later at night. This is my internet safe spot.

Oh yeah,i was listening to Hand in Glove. then I remembered that comment about Morrissey being into rectums. Then we had the nerd argument. But now I think of an asshole when I listen to that song.

Dick in glove.
The cum drips out of our behinds
No,it's not like any other hole.
This one is different because it's us.

Dick in glove.
We can fuck whenever we please.
and everything depends upon
how hard you ram into me

and if the people smell
Then the people smell.
Oh,I really don't know and I really don't care

That's as far as I'm gonna go. There. Now the song is ruined.

Fuck. Me. Mandatory purchase?yes.

For when I walk around Europe.

And.Do you like the "Neue Sachlichkeit"?

I just read the article and checked some photography
from Bernd and Hilla Becher.
"buildings where anonymity is accepted to be the style"
I guess that´s what architecture mostly guns for.

To me it´s hard to say if I like it, no, if I dig it,
when photography is reduced to the esthetic of the
displayed object.
But even then and especially when it comes to these old wrecked
objects and industrial buildings, the picture maybe is most objective
in the way it´s executed but the beholder I guess always tries to connect
and/or reflect his visual impression with his emotions.
So the objectivity gets resolved(?) by the viewer.

What do I know.The objects are interesting though.
And yeah, it´s pretty esthetic.It´s Dusseldorf.
Home of the ManMachine.

I discovered this quite recently, at this exhibition:
Sorry, all in german except for the video...
Stephen shore's book uncommon places is quite a revelation for me. I could look at these pictures for hours, very calming, those details, so sharp, they sparkle somehow..
Found some pictures from the opening of deannas exhibition at the same place:
Sorry jgonz that the song is ruined for you, all this ass talk, side effects can occur...
and those links, I'd just google the names and decide like/don't like. Namedropping helps a lot with those art gallery chicks...
Media? fashion? think more chemicals for sugar refineries.
Becoming an photographer is more of an lifetime project. Next step: get a blog that noone looks at. Then some self confidence...
