"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance."

DO NOT MOVE TO THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

"I think the data is pretty clear, but just in case: STAY AWAY FROM THE WHITE AREAS. Yes, the Pacific Ocean will both slow down temperature rise in the Pacific Northwest and stave off heat waves (as compared to the rest of the country). Yes, precipitation will remain high (as rain, if not snow). Sea-level rise is less likely to affect the elevated coast, true. Sure, flooding will be contained mostly in river valleys.

But be real with yourself about the negatives. These people lord over newcomers with weird cherries, fresh seafood, and nuclear coffee. The bookstores make your feet hurt. You’ll never be dry again. At least 85 of their 2,675 beers are too hoppy. They play Nirvana in the Seattle airport every. damn. day. Animals.

As someone with experience, trust me: You’re better off wherever you are — climate apocalypse be damned.”

Back in 2009 I worked on a short film my friend @ericmaran wrote & directed called Fragile.  It was one of the craziest weeks of my life and one of the most enjoyable.  We shot at Vancouver’s City Hall and Riverview Mental Hospital, and I don’t know that I slept more than a few hours that week.

The cinematographer, Chayse Irvin, is also crazy talented.  Check his stuff out on vimeo if you’re into beautiful things.

I wrote about You’re the Worst for @awesomefridayca 
And because I’m also the worst I’m self-promoting.
“So please, find a way to see this show (airing Thursdays).  These people are giving us an interesting, funny, tragic reflection of the zeitgeist.  It’s foul-mouthed art.  And it deserves an audience.”

the Quasimodo of the sorority set
Lorelai: That's what you got busted for? Bell-ringing?
Rory: Yes.
Lorelai: Were you at least smoking a Cuban cigar while you were doing it?
Rory: Mom.
Lorelai: No, I mean, bad girl, how many times have I told you not to ring bells?
Rory: Let's go.
Lorelai: They can dent, or scratch, and they make dogs go crazy. Who do you think you are, the Hunchback of Notre Dame? Are you French? Circular? I don't think so.
Rory: I'm walking to the car now.
Lorelai: Was it a big bell at least?

Friend: You're not afraid to rock the boat!
Me: What boat?
