Stuck a few goodies on the shelves above my desk for inspiration.

Kelley dropped off some lovely handbags to get up on the store.
I think the appropriate description for this little detail is, “kawaii

How to Be

How to Be

My friend “The Brown” recently scared me into thinking she got a tattoo of Robert Pattinson.
Thank goodness she didn’t.
But her obsession with this vampire heart-throb of angsty tweens is adorable otherwise.
I’m even keen on R.Patz’s contributions to the Twilight soundtrack thanks to her.

Now as for “How to Be” – an independent flick he starred in before his big break, I can’t support.
Luckily there was a fast-forward button and I was able to jump to the end and realize
I wasn’t missing much with this great looking film that lacked a story or character.

Over the Rhine / Gateway Celebration

Saturday, June 20, 2009


Mike (half of MiCA) keeps things tidy during Saturday’s big event in Over the Rhine.
(And I’m sure he’s going to wonder if I could have found a better photo to represent the day).
Fact is, we got there late and crammed to get everything set up, and the rest of the day was a whirlwind.

Barely had time to pick up the camera.

It was a great day though.

Finally got to meet Maya of VisuaLingual, love their work and picked up some goodies
for the home. Also checked out Drew in his inaugural out-in-the-wilderness set-up for Kitsch Café.

Good vibes. Music. Sun. Beer. Creative folks.
That’s pretty much a recipe for awesome.

Hardwick / McHale

Chris Hardwick

Went down to the Palace Theatre in Louisville to catch Chris Hardwick and Joel McHale make some funny.
Had a blast, shook Joel’s hand then stole his beer, and spent a little chunk of time saying howdy proper to Chris.
Quality guy through and through.

Joel McHale

I’m not sure what to caption this one, but Chicken Tetrazzini works I suppose.


Detail from the theatre.


Ceiling detail.

You know the kind, where you spin them around and their hair gets all messy…

Brandon being shy for the camera.

Two old friends plus a new one (not pictured) stop by for the night between
Phish shows in Missouri and Pennsylvania.

A bit of grilling late at night, a round of Euchre and it was time for bed.

I made sure no one slept on the lawn.

Oakwood Club

Tuesday, June 16, 2009


I’ve got a list of restaurants I want to try, if only for a single visit.
The Oakwood Club is one I can now add a checkmark beside, thanks
to an evening with Jenny, Christina, Anthony and Dan.

I highly recommend getting the creamy garlic peppercorn dressing
with blue cheese crumbles on a salad to start off. From there, it’s pretty
traditional fare served in an old-fashioned wood-paneled establishment.

And I’m not whining because they made me take my fine english driving cap
off, but the place needed a little injection of life; maybe some upbeat music, I dunno.

I’d still go back for the food on a special occasion.

Flat warming party

Sunday, June 14, 2009


A friend (literally) opened up their flat for a housewarming party of sorts.
Excellent views from every vantage inside and out.
Not sadly, there were so many great folks and conversation, I didn’t manage to brandish the camera too much.
