Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. Despite my ruh-tarded family, I can say that I had a really nice break away from school and what not. Now only three more weeks to go and I am free from school for a while for winter break. Im ready, but at the same time, living with my parents means being grilled about every bit of my whereabouts. Ugh. But I think I might start using the fact that Im now twenty-fucking-years-old to disobey for once. Either way, school stresses me out, and now that Im about to fight tooth and nail to register for my classes for next semester SO THAT I CAN GRADUATE ON TIME LIKE I'M SUPPOSED TO, my anxiety is at an all time high.

Anyways, nothing calms me down like good music. One of my favorite bands, Animal Collective recently released a new EP called Fall Be Kind, and its pretty legit. This song "What Would I Want? Sky" is one of my favorites. The song itself has samples from a Grateful Dead song. Pretty baddass.

Also, there seems to be a lot of really good movies coming out soon. One of which is 'The Lovely Bones', which is based on a novel by Alice Sebold. I was so taken by the preview that I've decided to start reading the book itself. It's devastatingly good. I suggest you all read the book, and then watch the movie when it comes out this holiday season!

Think Before You Get Ink.

Hello all,

well fall is most definitley here. Its really cold out, the leaves are falling, Thanksgiving is just about here...oh yeah and my whole house smells like the pumpkin bread my mom has been baking all day.

Also, this past weekend was my birthday weekend. Im finally 20 years old, no longer a teen. I had a pretty good time this weekend with friends and family and, oh yeah, lots of shopping in San Francisco. All together that makes a pretty damn good birthday weekend.

So lets not mess around and get right on to this awesome blog-ish thing that I happen to find via Its like fail blog, but its all about tattoos. Bad tattoos. I could spend hours on this site browsing through the hysterical, the horrifying, the disgusting, and the overall poor judgement that people seem to have when adding a permanent modification to their body. Serously people, this shit is permanent. Just think about that.

Oh, just as a note, some of this is a bit NSFW (not safe for work)

Oh you have a daughter? Great. Your daughter is just a baby? Cute. Oh you got her portrait tattooed on you? Awesome. Oh, you're child is a flesh eating demon from the flames of hell? Not cool.

I dont care how fucking hipster you are, what the hell is up with your tattoo? If I was into a guy and then I found out he had kitties with yarn tattooed on his chest, that would be a major deal breaker.

Sure, everyone knows the keyboard cat. But why would I want to go look at an ugly tattoo of it on your...whatever part of the body that is...when I could go look it up on youtube?

Okay, so owl tattoos are cool. In fact if I were to ever get a tattoo Id want it to be of an owl because owls are AWSM. But this makes me kind of not want to. I dont really know where the concept for this would have come from. Ugliesttattoo suggested a possible attempt to merge Harry Potter nerds and porn. Not a great success if I do say so myself.

I know the economy is tough, but no, I don't want to insert anything in your slot.

I've saved the best for last, Ashley will love this one.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! For this, Im just going to quote what had to say about it: "Is this poorly executed? Or did someone walk into a tattoo parlor and say, “Give me Robert Pattinson, but make it look like he just got some bad Botox. No, I mean, like, really bad. Like so bad that it paralyzed the right side of his face. Also, give him MacGyver’s hair. Perfect.”"

Ugh. I think tattoos are really awesome, but come on people. Lets think before we get ink. If you wanna see more of those, go to

So on the note of Edward Cullen, Ashley and I went to the New Moon premiere. I have to say that after standing out in 47 degree weather for 3 hours, sitting down in the theater never felt so good. Seriously, I had never been so content. Ever.

As for the movie...well Im not a big fan of the 'Twilight Saga' to begin with. THE SOUNDTRACK WAS AWESOME THOUGH. A movie where the 'hot' guys sparkle in the sunlight isnt really for me. And I thought vampires like, died if they went into the sunlight? I dont know, maybe I missed something. Unless its Lee Pace sparkling, I do not want. Even the werewolf guy, Jacob started to irritate me. Its like 'Oh let me casually just take of my shirt here and show you my ripped abs.' Yeah. No. At least he cut his hair and didnt look emaciated like a certain other leading man. Sorry Ashley. However, I will say the action scenes were pretty legit.

Overall, it was good times.

Now who is ready for Thanksgiving feastings? I know I am.

Vampire or Werewolf: The choice is yours

Caitlin and I went to the midnight showing of New Moon, and let's just say it was more then a little interesting.
The line outside the theater was intense, but what made it even more intense was that we had to wait outside for two hours in 47 degree weather. That's right, it was very cold, and they wouldn't let us inside (very inconsiderate of them).
The people in line were surprisingly normal... I didn't see a lot of people repping t-shirt or buttons or anything. I mean the weirdest people we met were these to crazy girls who asked if we would let them waiting line with us, and our mistake was saying yes. They were FREAKS! they talked to us like we had been there best friends or something (what are parents teaching there children these days? what ever happened to don't talk to strangers? Didn't they know Caitlin's a Stalker? lol :P)

The movie was everything I thought it would be and so much more. The acting was better, The action was spectacular, and It stayed true to the story. What more could I ask for? Oh wait I know, Lots of Shirtless men running around...CHECK! They covered it all.

Now to add a more serious note to this post.

I have been reflecting (and began this reflection with Caitlin in the car after the movie)
when it comes to boys they are either our Edward or our Jacob. Our Vampire or Our Werewolf. Our two Loves.

The Best Friend Love- Someone that you know won't ever let you down, the one who has always got your back through thick and thin. The Guy you know is perfect for you, but you're to scared to do anything about it because it could mess up everything you guys have if something were to go wrong and you'd rather have him in your life as your best friend forever then not in your life at all.

I like to call that Guy the one that's good for you but of course the catch is we never want whats good for us...nope we want the person whose heart matches ours beat for beat.

The Romeo Love- This is the one your heart weeps for, the one who makes you feel completely 100% real and alive, the one you would give your life for. He is your prince charming, your hearts protector and keeper. The one guy you would forsake all others for.

Maybe I'm a hopeless romantic to look at life this way but I think it's true. This is how I see things play out so often in girl/guy relationships. Every girl wants a Romeo love ( whether that Romeo is a Jacob or Edward doesn't matter) Even if they never admit it, it's true.

That's why girls love twilight so much (the vampire and werewolf just make it fun) it's all about the Love story, and the Heartache because that's real life. We Can relate to the feelings of Loving and losing...

Can't wait for the next installment of this saga: Eclipse June 10th!

Young Love I Salute You
Broken Hearted People I Salute You

Peace out sucka

Peas To Meet You, Crazy.

I think Im going crazy. I drew this.


Seriously. If something doesnt change, I might lose it. I've been major stressing lately. I've even been having dreams where something stressful is going on and I wake up feeling stressed out. No es bueno.

But in better news, my birthday is coming up! Friday! Im going to be 20!

So Jenna asked me what I wanted for my birthday, and I said 'I want a man.'. But now after seeing this video, scratch that, I want PEAS. With their tight little bods inside their pods. Yes.

Or maybe, love?

SOOOOO basically The Boondock Saints is a pretty effing epic movie. I only saw it finally pretty recently, so when my suitemate Jenna informed me that they were coming out with a sequel I was pretty damn stoked. BUT we found out it was in extremely limited release. So we were sad. Then yesterday, just by chance I was looking through the movie listings online to see what had come out at the shows yesterday. Lo and behold, I see at Roxy Stadium THE BOONDOCK SAINTS II: ALL SAINTS DAY. So I text Jenna immediatley and we ended up going to see it. And it was awesome. Irish boys are sexy. Especially sexy Irish boys with tattoos and guns.


This weekend I also had some of the best naan and curry ever at Shangri La across the street from SSU. Seriously, it was amazing. In fact I want some right now. Their chicken with creamy curry and butter naan is just a piece of heaven on earth.

Wow, I get off to ethnic foods such as naan and curry and cult classic flims. Im such a fucking hipster.

Oh well, got a problem with that? Well, make like a tree and get the fuck out of here!!!


Im so baddass.

tomorrow, today, and yesterday

I just had Katie watch the 1 Man 1 Jar video as well as the Mr. Hands video. They never fail to demonstrate to me how stupid humans are. Ugh...I think I need to vomit.

So I've embarked upon an ongoing photo project. Nothing special, mostly out of boredom and I like finding little things to do here and there to keep me from going crazy at this hell hole of school. I only look forward to the weekends it seems :( But I can do random shizzy like this whenever.

tomorrow is...

today has been

Yesterday was

Don't understand? Its okay, you're not supposed to. Think you know what it means? You're probably wrong unless you're me. But if you want more, you can find me at

So we all know how much I love bears, grizzly bear sleeping bags, ghost grizzly bears, Grizzly Bear the amazing band from Brooklyn, and now Bear in Heaven. A band who I just got into recently and I really dig their sound. In fact the authorities of indie rock over at called their latest album some of the best new music reviewed. Here's 'Lovesick Teenagers'

Oh yeah, lets not forget Im a permanent special guest on KSUN radio today from 4-6, every Tuesday. Check us out at

Also, tomorrow I have a day off! May be going to San Franny, *fingers crossed*

Enjoy, au revoir.

....said the grizzly bear ghost

Today I got my H1N1 vaccine, and Im kind of feeling paranoid. With all the bru ha ha about the things that can go wrong, I'm hoping I dont die within the next few hours.

So life has been...good? My friend showed me this the other day, and I think that anyone who is feeling bad for whatever reason should stay the night in one of these, and in the morning they'd feel a whole lot better.


ITS AN F'ING GRIZZLY BEAR SLEEPING BAG!!!! I mean really, wouldn't that just cheer you up?

Speaking of grizzly bears, the band Grizzly Bear has a new video out. With Grizzly Bear having contributed to the New Moon Soundtrack, lets hope some new kiddies youtube them and get nightmares.

Doesn't really make sense to me, but then again I don't see the need for it to. Its Grizzly Bear for God's sake.

Are Those People or Are Those Bears?

Hello Boy and Girls it's that time once again:

Vloggy Vlog Time

We have taken the time out of our very busy schedules to make another Vlog (video Blog incase you didn't know what that meant)
This one literally had us wasting a lot of time because we had to do it in three takes cause my computer was being a butt.
So without further ado here is the long awaited premiere of "Are Those People or Are Those Bears?":

Dia de los Muertos

So today is the second day of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of Dead if you couldn't figure that out.

Dia de los Muertos is a holiday whos origins come from Mexico and Latin America. Basically it is a day that celebrates death as opposed to mourning it. It is viewed as a celebration of a loved one passing or having passed on to the afterlife. So, death is a beginning more so than an end.

Some people view this as kind of morbid, but I see it as something really beautiful, and an amazing way to celebrate someone you care about who has passed on. To commemorate them, people often make altars in honor of their loved one, and in Mexico and other parts of Latin America it is not uncommon for families to bring the celebration out to the actual grave sites. The altars are decorated with marigolds, photos, and favorite foods or drinks of the person being honored.


I've always always always wanted to go to Mexico around this time of the year. I love all the art and culture that comes with Dia de los Muertos, not to mention it is a part of my very own culture. Some day, maaaaybe I can go. It would be amazing to say the least.

Anyway, this weekend I found a little store that sold molds to make sugar candy skulls, or calaveras. Im super excited to try and make some!


So this weekend was Halloween weekend. I hope everyone had a fun and scary time. I know I did.


Yep, that's where I get it from.

Anyhoo, damn is it really November already?
