Fawn Friday: Fawn Worthy!

Hey pals!

So, you will notice that the blog title has changed! (gasp!)

The post themes will stay the same, and hopefully there will be many more than there are currently!

So, stay tuned, and enjoy!

… Happy FRIDAY!

A Layout Makeover, and Making a Difference

A new layout! How do we look?

But, more importantly…

Make a difference.

You can find a list of ways to help the Boston victims here.

I personally will be making a donation to The One Fund, formed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Tom Menino to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred on April 15.

Consider donating blood, or donating to a fund… if you have found other ways to lend a hand, please provide information in the comments.

My heart and thoughts are with all those affected by the tragedy.

What I learned from 90s television: Hey Arnold!

Rather than doing a film post this week, I thought I’d share a little something I have been writing:

What I learned from 90s television

Please add to the list, as I’m sure there are fellow 90s babies that found this as fun as I did. (at least I hope I’m not the only one…)

What I learned from Hey Arnold!:

1.    If you have a crush on a boy, you should probably create a shrine of him. It’s the best use of your time, for sure.

2.    This boy you have a crush on. You should insult him in order to get his attention. Perhaps you can criticize the shaping of his head.

3.    If you’re looking to make a world record, the world’s largest pizza is definitely the way to go.

4.    Have a bad-ass handshake with your best friend. (Note to self: figure out how to nail ‘beewoo-wooo-oo-wooh’ sound)

5.    It’s cool to wear teeny-tiny baseball caps that are actually smaller than your nose.

6.    A paper fortune-teller is the most accurate way to discover whom you will eventually marry.

7.    As awesome as they look, it’s probably not the best idea to go downtown dressed as a banana/strawberry. You could find yourself mixed up in a case of mistaken identity. Scary stuff, kids.

8.    There are in fact ways to get into bars at a young age, and dominate the pool table. You just have to dress real suave, and wear shades. (Funny; last time I tried this, I was denied entry.)

9.    The “Tunnel of Love” is a real thing. Magic-dreamboat-ride-of-your-life.

10.  Wilikers, this really bites.

 

HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE!

 

(uh-here we go, here we go…)

All Things Wonderful

OH, HEY!

Last weekend I roamed around with my Hassie in the gorgeous weather, taking some shots here and there.
I went to see the current exhibits at the ICP Museum, which made me realize how much I want to get back into my photography.  The exhibits were really incredible, and I suggest you go check em out. (All but Weegee come down May 6th, so head over there soon!)

The exhibits on display as of right now are:

Weegee: Murder Is My Business
The Loving Story: Photographs by Grey Villet
Perspectives 2012: Anna Shteynshleyger, Greg Girard, Chien-Chi Chang
Magnum Contact Sheets 
… I will be writing a post with more on these exhibits soon! ; )

After the museum, I wound up at Harrison and Kristen’s apartment (my brother and his girlfriend) where Harrison and our friend Eric were stringing up some lights on their spectacular terrace! (But really, it’s spectacular.)
They are hosting a Cinco De Mayo party on their terrace on Saturday, and I can’t wait!

I decided to do a series of diptychs for these photos… ya know, just changing it up!

Enjoy —

I went back to visit Syracuse this past weekend for Mayfest (the greatest college experience known to mankind, that actually takes place in April) and I had an amazing time.  Went up with the greatest of friends, and got to see lots of people that I missed SO much.
There have been lots of transitions since I graduated last year, so going back and being around so many people that make me so unbelievably happy was… Euphoric.

I am definitely going through withdrawal right now, missing college, but I definitely have some exciting things to look forward to! (Visiting my friend Anchal next weekend being one of them! YAY!)

I hope you all have been healthy and well… perhaps snapping some photos, also?!
