Cody at Fourbarrel

Right now Cody is in a tropical paradise. Just the other day we were having hungover coffee at Fourbarrel Coffee. Life’s cray like that sometimes.

Lauren at Bro. Bros.

Lauren and I drank margies on the balcony of Bro Bros a few months ago. They were good and the tuna melts and chowder weren’t bad either.

Tony at Adelita’s

This is my father Tony, or as some of my friends (one friend) like to call him, “The Captain.” He and I had some Adelita’s together the other day and this morning he left for Washington. He will be there for the foreseeable future working on the boat and sussing out captain work and God knows what else.

Lauren’s Legs

Alright you sick-kitties… Apparently nobody gives a shit what I do on a Friday night or some guy texting on his phone at a bar. So, here’s what you really want – some skin.

Friday Night at Bottom of the Hill

And WELCOME, to super-sized post No. 50! Looks like we made it. (Shit, did I use that joke already?) I know you like that new-new so here’s a little bit of that work I promised you from this last weekend, specifically Friday night when I saw Owen at Bottom of the Hill.

The sound at BotH is consistently killer, pints of Anchor are $4.50 (the brewery is practically literally around the corner) and it attracts a fun crowd. I mean, if I’M there… The show itself was great. I liked Survival Guide (featured on yesterday’s post) enough to pick up two copies of their 7″ after the set.

The headliner, Owen, seemed to be having fun with the audience – or at least as much fun as any self-respecting emo-rocker can allow himself to have and still maintain his credibility. I was warned beforehand that I should be ready to cry Elliot Smith style but between the virtuoso guitar work and his considerable rapport with the audience it was hard to have anything but a good time. Mike even did his best Mumford and Sons impression when he had to kick his encore into double-time in order to make the show’s midnight cut-off.

The rain that night made getting cash from my ATM a soaking wet adventure but what about having a good time has ever been easy?

***Allegedly Owen is playing another show at BotH on Feb 28 of this year, if anybody is interested in seeing this guy live and happens to be in the area.***

Sarah in Dolores Park

It’s been a long weekend. I left for the city with enough money and clean clothes for two days and a night on Thursday morning and here we are with our foot in the door of Monday and I’m just getting back. Three rainy soaking wet nights and as many couches/floors later I’m about ready for a weekend from my weekend. The good news is that I ought to have some new work ready early this week.

In the mean time here’s a reminder of sunnier days in Dolores Park with my friend Sarah and some Ike’s Place Sandwiches.

Self-Portrait Project

It’s not a state secret that I’ve been having trouble coming up with new negatives for this blog. I’m not going to blame anything in particular for my lack of inspiration – after all, inspirations is inspirations and that’s all there is to it. Who knows from whence they come.

I didn’t have anyone to take pictures of I spent a whole roll on myself.

Angela at Club 6

I’ve been meaning to photograph Angela for a long time now but there never seems to be enough light. A couple of weeks ago she invited me to an event that she was catering, the premise of which was everybody hung out, drank beer and painted on the walls. I figured if there was enough light to paint by there should be enough room to take pictures by and I was almost right.

Sir Pluggy’s Jerk Chicken

I’d like to start this week off at the beginning. So here I am (I’m the baby) in Jamaica. I wish I could tell you about Sir Pluggy or his jerk chicken but I can’t. I like to think he’s out there somewhere, making jerk chicken, livin’ the island life but who can tell what in twenty-five years will happen.
