MONEY. it's been a slight stressor lately.
i just dropped $900 on car maintenance. christmas.. was needlessly expensive (i like to give nice presents). new years: i think i'm driving to vegas with some friends tomorrow; it won't be free. weekends, and even weeknights now in the city - i enjoy them.  spending on clothes, i've gotten better at this. spending on FOOD, this is becoming a large problem.
but hang on, what's the purpose of money again? to be used, correct? spent?
well if so, then i'm right on track. fulfilling my cash's dharma.
REVELATION. i suppose i can relax now





ha if you're feeling extra abundant

ha if I were to rob a bank..




Man in Hillary mask robs bank..."In her role as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton can be quite the persuasive diplomat, which is perhaps why one man thought that might help him convince a bank to hand over all of its money.
A gun-wielding man sported a Hillary Clinton mask while robbing a Wachovia bank in Sterling, Va., according to the Loudoun Times
The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash, and no injuries were reported. It was the second time in two months that the branch had been robbed.
A picture of the Hillary-masked man can be seen here." -Politico.com

MANIAC


i can't stop listening to this song/album. though the overriding tone is rather dark and bleak, the music engulfs you with it's minute intricacies and avant-garde assembly. his creativity is genius

you've already heard all the hype. i went opening night and will see it at least 2 more times in theaters. possibly my favorite film of the year. natalie portman is ridiculous

WINGS_&joy

"He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wing├Ęd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise."

"Love to faults is always blind,
Always is to joys inclined,
Lawless, winged, and unconfined,
And breaks all chains from every mind."
-William Blake

only @ Denny's

in downtown SLC.

2:00am - after finishing a movie, friends and i pull into Denny's parking lot to find 4 cop cars and an ambulance parked with lights flashing. restaurant is packed. what on earth could be going on?
2:10am - after debating whether to go in or not, we decide to. curiosity beat us. while waiting to to be seated a crazed-looking bum enters and begins "inconspicuously" sketching a picture of me with a marker.
2:30am - after waiting to be seated for 20mins we finally get a table. while being seated, an entire medical team of about seven persons and a fireman and two policeman file out. what??? our server informed us, "oh don't worry, it was just a 28 year old girl -she had too much to drink and passed out. she's fine."
2:31am - server leaves to get drinks, homeless artiste appears at our table and seats himself. "i just wanna draw you guys really bad." ooooookay. one of my friends gets up to go to the bathroom -to inform our server of the uninvited guest. server comes over, "uh bart, you can't do this." homeless bumpkin scowls at us and yells, "ya damn whiners!! no respect for the art community whatsoever.." and leaves. ha
2:35am - table next to us asks me to call them a cab because they were too drunk to. really?
***we just want cheese fries**
3:00am - FOOD at last.
3:10:am - a small argument arose between a 24yr old and the 50yr old sassy server, Bert. Bert was accusing him of stealing a $3.00 tip. Bert walks off in a huff muttering, "i'm calling the cops. i'm calling the cops" (in his high nervous voice). "yeah you go do dat! i din't steal ya f**king money." young guy decides to leave with girlfriend. Most of the restaurant is watching now. as they leave to get in their car, Bert and other servers rush to the window to jot down the license plate number. really.
young guy sees this and gets annoyed and marches back into the restaurant. cursing and profanities ensue. young man put his phone on the counter to be able to use hand gestures. nimble Bert snatches his phone and squeals. "you won't get your phone until i get my tip!"
"i don't give a ___ about your f*%kin tip! man i will send the entire f#*kin hood on you!" young guy decides to wait outside for the cops.
FIVE cops cars peel into the parking lot and literally jump on the young guy. young guy apparently couldn't hold his tongue and is handcuffed and thrown into the back of a cop car. Bert who went outside to watch now comes inside with a smirk on his face, a little hip-swing and wrist flick in his stride, and tosses his greasy parted hair back in triunmph.
A THREE. DOLLAR. TIP.
WOW
3:30am - we finally get our check (our poor server slipped on ice outside whist observing the melee).
we leave.
whaaat a night. thank god for the SLPD. heaven knows where we'd all be without them

onehundredtwentyseven:HRS

so i saw this film last week. i'd give it six thumbs up if i had them. very moving and inspiring. about a cavalier utah granola who got his arm trapped under a boulder for, well 127 hours. for what could have been quite a bad plot for a film, Danny Boyle did an excellent job. James Franco was also great. quite strenuous and grusome at parts but i had to recommend it! click here for a trailer
