Inspiration Monday: Unemployment

Inspiration Monday: Unemployment

So my job has gone on hiatus and so for the first time in almost 5 years I am not working.... And with my job you didnt get vacation time due to being free lance so this is the most time I have had off in years--and I dont know what to do with myself.

I already cleaned my closets out for charity stuff, sorted out various home improvement projects that I had been waiting to do, I beat my current video game obsession (Dragon Age) and now I am sitting in the Clubhouse trying to figure out my next step.

I have started up with my writing again and want to work on some painting and drawing but am so rusty on both accounts that I am nervous to pick up and start.... But I do need to use this time for me and get focused--at least starting here is a good place to begin

Yay vacation?

Friday Tunes

I Still Believe In Me by Fame TV show



For some reason this song has been in my head a lot lately--maybe because of how much I love Coco in this video... It's also probably connected to the job ending too but I dont want to think too much about that.

I am amazed it didnt win an Emmy the year this was nominated--it's one of the best numbers from the whole show.

Obsession: Ronan Farrow


He's a as smart as they come investigative reporter, a pop culture junkie, and a soothsayer on Twitter… There's a whole a lot to like about Ronan Farrow

But honestly he is also the best possible genetic mix of his parents Mia Farrow and Woody Alan – – I mean Frank Sinatra. I'm not sure who they thought they were kidding by pretending it was otherwise a.

Thursday truths: nudes

Thursday truth; nudes

I've been thinking a lot recently about nudes--not pornography though that definitely has its place but more the idea of the classical artists use of the naked body. This came up when I was working on ideas for the decor for our bedroom and I realized that I wanted to put something tasteful and attractive and--well--naked on the wall

This Screams Relaxing

I wondered if this was going to be a bad idea--if when we give tours of the apartment people would get all weird about it… If it would come across as flashing sex as opposed to coming across as something natural and calming and tranquil. There is something very freeing of nudity and that is an emotion I really want to work into my space. 

I Can Take This to One of Those Pictures to Paintings Places--Get an Oil version?

It just strikes me as odd that we as a society decided that anything involving nudity now has changed context and meaning. If you look in the world's top museums, well-made period piece television or film or even what was cataloged as desirable in ancient society--nudity had a place in public.

Now I'm not saying that I'm any better – – my great uncle had a large nude of a woman with great covering her va-jay-jay and I was fascinated by it as a child. I couldn't help but point and giggle however as I matured I'd like to think my taste matured as well....


I mean this screams sophisticated right? It's Roman classical art. Jeez

Start of summer



People who say Los Angeles doesn't have holidays… They have never been in the city in June. This picture is all about one of my favorite seasonal trend--the June Gloom.

It's probably the darker and more sarcastic side of my personality but I love these days that start out cold and  clammy but finish out bright and sunny. I'm sure it has something to do with marine layer or Santa Anna winds but I'm not the kind to look up science…

I just find it darkly interesting

Conflicted

Conflicted


This just looks so douche bag--like the unmade spin-off from the Entourage but.... I'm going to see it if only to laugh and be drunk in public and eat Pinkberry afterwards... Cause my friends will do that.
