Citizen Canes!

29th October 2012

Old people are fantastic! In 5th grade, I joined a program called Adopt a Grand Parent, because I missed my grandma who lived 1000 miles away from me. The program was crazy. My original grand parent died shortly after meeting him. Then my substitution grandma and I were doing some arts and crafts when out of nowhere this old battle axe ”grandma” took the first cane she could find, lifted herself out of a chair with my pair of scissors and accused a man far too young to have ever been in a relationship with her, of cheating while holding him at…scissor point.

It was the coolest thing I had ever seen.

That entire story was just an excuse to post this photo:

(I didn’t take this photo but I wish I know who did)

Senior citizens don’t seem to care at all about most things, yet they are typically sure to be seen as well dressed. They are classy and crazy and look so cute when they use iPhones!

My Day in the Park With Ellen Degeneres

25th October 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching Ellen on TV and every time I watch that show, I do this self admitted slightly creepy thing where I imagine what it would be like if I were friends with her. We would pet cute dogs, iron our slacks together, and dance over tables while listening to Earth Wind and Fire.

I was telling Alex about this recurring fantasy of mine when he came up with the very thoughtful idea of going down to Burbank to ask her if she would like to dance over tables with me for real!

And so we took the journey to Los Angeles, snuck ourselves into where she works at Warner Bros Studios, and roamed around looking for her. After about an our of walking, my feet became tired so we found one of her golf carts that asked 3 things of us before we could take it for a spin.

After we laughed, danced, and art departmented, we were granted access to the Ellen Show cart. We drove it all around the WB lots and had SO much fun getting lost for a while. But there was still no Ellen in sight.I began to feel like we were never gonna find her and got a little bit sad. I think Alex sensed it, because when I turned to look at him he had a look of determination in his eyes that I had never seen before.

He pressed down on the gas pedal as hard as he could, and began screaming for her to pleeease come out and play! We were going a whopping 10MPH in a nice suburban neighborhood when we nearly ran right into a massive crane monster!

Then we laughed about it for a while, realized how silly this entire Ellendeavor was and spent the rest of the day roaming around movie lots, guardian-less. Jumping around and having fun even with out Ellen Degeneres, as we usually do!

I feel like I grew up a lot that day. (Like, seriously! LOOK AT THE DIFFRENCE BETWEEN ME AND THAT FULL GROWN WOMAN!)

And in the end, I did get to meet a real solid thing that probably knows Ellen pretty well. Her parking spot.

So if anyone asks, you just go ahead and tell them that I spent a day in the park with my new friend Ellen Degeneres, ok?

Monday Mix: Halloween Music!

22nd October 2012

I love that Halloween is approaching, finally!

Not just for the free candy, goofy made up subway goers, and the fun decorations. ITS ALSO A PERFECT EXCUSE FOR A HALLOWEEN MIX!

Last year, I was really excited about gathering a ton of music for my friends Halloween party, but I got distracted by Halloween Horror Nights, getting my grocery shopping done before I turned back into a pumpkin, and figuring out how to make foot high pink bunny ears that stay up while I jump.

This year, my life is much more in order and although my friend is not having another party, I’ve still started accumulating the music I meant to give him last year, through out the month. So heres a couple of the songs I’ve gathered, put into mix form for you!

How To Not Carve A Pumpkin

19th October 2012

I used to always say to myself “Judging by how poorly I stab a pumpkin in order to make a face, I would probably be a horrible murderer.” Thats about the time that I watched Blood Sucking Freaks and got totally inspired!

I grabbed a couple of drill bits, my drill, and a gutted pumpkin and ended up making a couple of fun pumpkin designs!

If you fail at that, punch a hole in that shit and you have a great excuse to wear a new hat!

tah dah! (photo thanks to the incredible Derek Woods)
