Two weeks ago, I drove up to Wayne, NJ with Donna to be a subject in a photo shoot for my spring semester photography professor. He's working on a thesis, a collection of photographs exploring the idea of arraignment. From Wikipedia: "Arraignment is a formal reading of a criminal complaint in the presence of the… Continue reading arraignment
Seriously. Her show was amazing, full of energy. Her opening act / back up band, Nervous Cabaret, were out of control. Sexy, sexy music. We were at the TLA, in the balcony, and twice she came to stand in the exact spot where we were sitting. She spoke to us briefly, and we just sort… Continue reading amanda palmer is a freaking rock star.
So I've been keeping up with the thankfulness updates each day, which has been a good reminder for me to keep my frustration in perspective. Day 3: Today I am thankful for Kendall, who enjoys a good political shouting match - it's his birthday! Day 4: Today I am thankful for my awesome friends, who… Continue reading thankfulness update

I just read Amanda Palmer's blog from 10/29, which is an Open Letter to Robert Smith (of the Cure, for those of you unfamiliar). Yes. In every way, yes. I haven't been a fangirl since - well, to be honest, probably in about 10 years. Of course I still went to concerts and got excited… Continue reading it should not have taken me this long.

Last week, I wrote this blog entry, in which I discussed a posting in my Civil Rights class that bothered me for what I see as it's inherent racism. WordPress kindly created a single "Possibly Related Post" - and it links to this blog,… Continue reading holy what-the-f
So I decided that I would take a day this weekend and dedicate it to writing projects. First I caught up on my critiques over at the ChopShop, the virtual workshop that Donna initiated for our artist friends who can't always manage to get together face-to-face. There was definitely some good stuff happening over there.… Continue reading progress!
