imagine loving the british comedy NATHAN BARLEY about a new media guy in london.
and then imagine doing NATHAN BARLEY the character all weekend to your australian bro-in-law who used to live in london and claims he knows people like NATHAN BARLEY.
basically say "yeah" after everything. call everything "rubbish" and say that girls are "well fit, yeah?"
bro-in-law wasn't into it. but he couldn't deny it either.
it's not a trip to new york without a night where you stay up late enough to see the sunrise from someone's roof or backyard. this was friday night/saturday morning.
i was exceptionally tired when this was taken, and promptly fell asleep afterwards.

this guy is one week old:
made the mistake of saying to his mom that he looked a lot like the last one, since i saw him after one week too. she vehemently disagreed.
and this is a video of rafa dancing in her car seat to cher and madonna.

when i was 19, i wish i had met up with some like-minded indie rockers and started this band.
los campesinos! are 7 friends from cardiff. two lead singers-girl plays violin; guy plays glockenspiel. girl keys, girl bass, two guys on guitars and a boy drummer.
here's another jam:

this shit is straight out of g.i. joe. it was something that cobra had, and i think it was major blood, that i remember tooting around on it.
fromt he article:
Steering with his body, Rossy dived, turned and soared again, performing what appeared to be effortless loops from one side of the Rhone valley to the other. At times he rose 2,600 feet before descending again.
After one last wave to the crowd the rocket man tipped his wing, flipped onto his back and leveled out again, executing a perfect 360-degree roll.
"That was to impress the girls," he later admitted.
look what i found:

went on a super long hike.
this was the day of. day later, it looked purple, with the texture of crispy bacon. then i made the mistake of lifting weights, and after that, it broke out in really gross blisters.
basically: sunscreen works

so yosemite was all about rocks, but carrizo plain is all about animals.
when i go hiking w/ yz, she brings the snakebite kit. i make fun of her, but this guy almost bit me.
hello, antelope. we see you.
this rattlesnake just ate a mouse or squirrel, and was too tired to rattle for us when we cornered it.
oh my god, a fucking bald eagle!!!
the bald eagle thing is an inside joke from alaska.
we also saw kangaroo rats and bats and in the middle of the night (we camped in the foothills of some mountains), we were woken up by coyotes howling (3:00 AM) and desert owls hooing (4:00 AM). i made a joke about seeing a tarantula in the morning b/c of all the fauna, but check out what we saw on the road:
holy shit! what a weekend. JEALOUS?!
guess what: yosemite rocks.
btw: this is officially my favorite shirt of all time.

working out at the gym puts me in contact with tons of terrible music. however, they had the video for the remix of the utah saints' something good 08. it's actually pretty awesome.
i think that if i could do all the running man moves in this video, and dance like puffy in that other video, i'd be very happy.
in case you were wondering, here's the original version from like '93 or something.
if you ever wanted to know what the early 90's rave scene felt like, it felt like that video.

yosemite is about rocks. it's about el capitan and half dome and how glaciers carved up the valley and created it. and in april, it's about water falling down from the rocks.

cody ponders el capitan
cody checks bridalveil falls
cody plus ribbon falls
vernal falls and a double rainbow
