Say You'll See Me Soon

Those are burnt matches from wishes i made
and blew out.


Your perfume sucks.
I saw the fancy display, i've been seeing the ads.
I squirted some on my wrist but mostly missed and got my ski jacket instead. I know i am sensitive to scents - but..this is NO GOOD. I had to gun it home to scrub my wrist down.
This is quite foul - just one step head of mary-kate and ashley's spray ('fruit smoothie' smells)..or a scratch 'n' sniff the daisy/powder one. I detect notes of lily-of-the-valley. I wondered if i had grabbed the eau de toilet bottle instead of parfum.

But I do like your bottle concept - i like how you always use the rasta colours red, yellow, green. awesome...and L.A.M.B...that's mine but you can use it. But those colours have nothing to do with this scent(less apprentice).


gwen, i don't mind you...even when i mostly listened to punk and/or techno, i threw on tragic kingdom while cleaning my grandpa's house. I made fun of your clothes in 1995...'funky' fluevogs, wifebeater, hair that took five hours and track pants). But I knew way back then, you would be a huge star.
I always know these things.
I'm psychic.

For everyone else.

Deep Purple have an album called: When We Rock WE ROCK

PS i watched Margot At The Wedding again and it was even BETTER the second time.
Jack Black is a tour de force.

PPS i watched the oscars last night (finally. i keep missing it). I had to stream it on my laptop so it got a bit annoying and then thru all the good parts it was cutting out...I always cry when i watch these things..It's so emotional.
So many underdogs were awarded! It's a MIRACLE.
The ONCE musicians...that was lovely.
and the diablo lady.

We Could Put A Pillow Between Us

i promess i will try and post more often. i'm still scared. i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings..and sometimes my opinions and views..just might do that.

i need to develop a persona...any suggestions?
any suggestions for this here blog? i'm still trying to figure out a tone.

i watched that movie last nite 'margot at the wedding' it's GOOD.
i enjoyed it. i might even watch it again..just like the old daze when you would rent a videotape or two and watch it on friday night as a bored teen and then again the next morning..just...because.

i have a friend who did that.

Be Kind/Please Rewind

i don't have any problem with rewinding....all i do is rewind. i STILL want to wake up with amnesia.

i don't think about the fastforwarding. i never did. i never cared about the future. oh maybe this is changing. i say it out loud..the word:


back to margot. Kidman is a total c-u-next-tuesday. she's brutal. Jack Black is hilarious. He's crying or spazzing throughout the entire movie. Noah Baumbach wrote the part for his wife Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Now that's what i'm talkin' about.

i'll take some of that shit.

There are three scenes of music and movie so perfectly paired. A 'Bucks' song off TUSK (most awesome fleetwood mac album..better than rumours..

that's all
for everyone
that's all
for me
that's all
for everyone

and they use my favourite blondie song UNION CITY BLUE off eat to the beat:

re-arrange my mind
in turquoise

i am totally fucking convinced that what has made my life interesting (to me) is REWINDING and the moments that are most amazing are paired with music. I look back on a stretch of time and the soundtrack to that - and then it looks perfect.
When they do that in a motion picture - it is MAGIC.
Miami Vice (TV) did it all the time. They make the song a movie. sophia coppola does it really well.

are moments' monuments"

tomorrow in exciting WHITEHORSE (or Whitemare - new nickname i heard) is a continuation of some kinda heritage appreciation weekend 'rendez-vous'...Ben and I are going to a pancake breakfast, a chainsaw throwing contest and an extended yoga class. I call that a banner day.

oh yeah and the academy awards.
i might want to see that diablo cody lady wearing a pair of million dollar shoes.

i hope to make a short video clip of a chainsaw hurtling thru the air..just sky behind. we'll see. I think about chainsaws alot. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre scarred me for life (age 11) to the point where i have a SOFTSPOT for Leatherface.
My dad or grandpa constantly had a chainsaw going full-force.

i made a spontaneous video of MARVIN ((he's a persian cat that looks like a crazy cottonball w/ reagan's eyes in the Exorcist). I was sitting at my tiny desk working on my book and he was grooming himself on my i whipped out my camera and shot a tiny video.

when i played it back i found out that SPACESHIP SUPERSTAR by PRISM was playing the whole time so it sounds all shitty in the background...that coupled with the Marv..i couldn't stop watching it and was hyperventilating with laughter. Then i showed ben and candice who agreed.

I'm a spaceship superstar
i've got a solar-powered lazer beam guitar

one more thing: i was working today at the Yukon Arts Center - my extremely part-time job (??!) dealing w/their collection and i get to do my two favourite activities: deal with art and office (that's a half joke). There was NOBODY there...I was typing stuff in and listening to duran duran on youtube to break up the silence...the whole day i felt like i was in the Overlook Hotel in the Shining.
that's the one.

talk about ice-olation.

i love to love you.

Dear N

that mix sounds good. i'm still working on
it's pretty hilarious so far. all over the map. Mostly male. i'm super obsessed with this Adam Ant song right now: Kings of the Wild Frontier.
i've seen/heard it used in two movies lately..used to perfection. i love it when filmmakers nail it.

(deep purple, four tops, foreigner ‘Dirty White Boy’, brit brit ‘piece of me’, king crimson, sniff'n the tears (do you know the song 'driver's seat'?), sway by the stones...jan hammer, thin lizzy, mr. mister, aphex twin,'ll see where this goes... i take these things very seriously. Do you know the musical outfit Budgie? They are from Wales, 3 decades back.

eckhart tolle is cool. i guess best described as a metaphysical teacher. he studied religion for XXXX years? something wild...he's all about The Now. Which is The Only Thing There Is.
i like his theories...he's known worldwide now - lives in vancouver, strangely.

years ago i illustrated one of his essays: why women are closer to was for some international women's day paper.

One day a year?

i'm glad to hear your art show went well.
seems like you and your friends know how to have Good Times.

i'm plugging away here.
lots of work to do all of a sudden.
major insomnia going on.
spontaneous dance parties
with one person in attenDance
lots of ice fog
especially when you open the door to The Outside
and pool, swimming, that is
there is a heart-shaped swirl pool @ the aquatic centre up the hill across the Alaska Highway.
and a good slide to scream down.

speak soon.
