blackbird bicycle co-op

.. has relocated.

it is now in my backyard and this weekend marked the re-opening.
in addition to fixing up bikes, we are also encouraging people to bring crafty projects to work on if they are interested. Hopefully we'll also be doing different demos in the near future (for both bike and craft/skill related things)
The co-op should be open every weekend from around 11 am til sometime in the late afternoon at 3131 Monroe Street
You can also check out co-op related events on this facebook page.

Here is a project that I worked on for a class.. it involved me using a number a power tools in order to shape/carve a piece of wood. I call it, "Go Cocks."

snow + found photo collages

SNOW... in Columbia. (I usually don't like cold things at all, but I have to admit that the snow was really neat.)
This is my house:

... sadly I had to work for most of the time that the snow was falling, so this is the view from my window at work:

When I got off of work at around 12:30 a.m. I wandered around Columbia and it was seemed so pretty and different, although it was only a a result of the weather.

And, today is Valentine's Day, so here are some card thingys that I made:

I was lucky enough to acquire a whole lot of discarded photos from CVS....these were for my mother:

my, oh my.
(people love taking pictures of their children, beach vacations and weddings, just so you know.)
.. happy valentine's day, ya hear!

life feels more fulfilled

now that I have seen Of Montreal live.

The show included:
+animal costumes
+a brawl between a man in footie pajamas and the pope
+being doused in feathers
+leotards and purple tights
+ men in long, blonde wigs dressed in black spandex
+psuedo Crucifixions

all in all, it was sweeter than a bowl o'cherries.
.. I had fun getting dressed up for the show. Amy and I drew each other chest pieces.

I didn't take very many pictures during the show because, well, I was enjoying the show and dancing like a fool

this is the cross Kevin Barnes was hoisted onto

... he also threw his jacket into the audience during the encore and Amy and I caught it (as did about 5 other people.) we ended up playing dance tug-of-war for about 7 minutes and decided to cut the jacket in half. So, we now have half of Kevin Barne's jacket.
it is probably one of the best souvenirs I have ever gotten.
Oh, and there was snow.
