I wonder how many hours I logged as a kid watching this very vhs I digged up this morning. Michael.
I'll never forget the Smooth Criminal dance sequence. That part where he leans into a crazy 45 degree angle to the floor...!!!
The movie is a strange smörgåsbord of acting, singing, dancing; in one part he even turns into a claymation bunny. Nevertheless, his talent never ceased to amaze me as a kid and even today. Here's the trailer, along with awful voiceover movie dude. Don't let his lame commentary deter you from seeing this movie. You can borrow my vhs.


excited for things to come...

in memory of a childhood idol.

working on a new painting

can't remember the last time i touched a paintbrush. has been way too long.


friendship bracelet making lately.

in other news:

-trying to work on a website project. i downloaded dreamweaver, and that's about as far as it's gotten after watching nerdy youtube tutorial after nerdy youtube tutorial.

-cutting fabric to make more tank tops for promised friends. really told myself i was going to take advantage of the sewing machines and labs at school next quarter. fingers crossed on this one.

-should probably look for a part time job or something before i start to feel even more like a bum than i already do.

happy father's day

we had a nice lunch today with dad. i took a lot of pictures of things he's been planting in the backyard. my dad can plant anything and make it grow; i mean ANYTHING. and well, the fish too, the fish in our fish tanks started out as a couple and multiplied like crazy. we could open up shop now, as aquarium/csa!

i accidentally picked the purple corn too early. and the yellow one waaay too early.

also, i checked my grades and that class i thought i failed horrendously i got a C- in. at least i passed. i am celebrating with chocolate chip cookies (this recipe) and a try at baking white bread this time...a productive afternoon.

wow i really have no life...

See you at the parade.

I saw a baby whale this weekend.

I just realized...

One letter switched out and my blog name would be:
The LaKer Parade...
Let's go! The last time I went to the Laker parade, who can forget...

Mark Madsen!!! YESSSSSS.

My first attempt at baking bread, due to my mother's concern about what they put in the store bought stuff.

I think?
It hasn't cooled yet; I'm confident though. I thumped the bottom and it sounded right...
If you're interested, I used this recipe from King Arthur. It was relatively simple, and the results aren't bad.

sad times

Had to pay my traffic violation today. $276 bucks down the drain. Poop.
Finals next week. Double poop.
Also, I tried to cut my own hair. Good thing my perm hides most of the damage I did. I think.

Another victory, just as my dream last night (complete with images of riots on the streets of LA) predicted. Time to pull out my Fisher 0.4 shirt. Who says he's too old?

Also, I'm attempting to bake bread for the first time.
Also, my dad planted some, and now there are a ton of these...

I'm not sure what they're called. White beans? I tried google-ing "types of beans", haha. I guess they're cannellini beans. He thought he had planted soybeans. Oh well. Fresh cannellini beans anyone?

P.S. Charissa! Recognize my shirt??

i was wary

of what would happen to late night television, with the Jay Leno retirement, Jimmy Fallon coming on, Conan moving around...but this is pretty awesome.

Victor's post reminded me of the newspaper article I read months ago about a Beatles version of the ever popular "Rock Band" video game series. The characters even look like's kind of creepy. But at any rate I'm looking forward to playing soon! Click Victor's post to see the instruments. Pretty sweet! (I feel like a nerd.)
