last hoozah and goodbye and stuff.

how else would i have spent my last weekend in california and ended this beautiful summer.

saturday night on the patio dance floor,
hefeweizen bottle in hand with my best friend by my side,
i was so damn happy. you don’t even know.

camera batteries ran out of juice half-way through the weekend,
but i was able to snap some pics before it died.

yeah i know. my aunt was like,
“there are so many beautiful things to shoot in beijing,
and you shoot that??”

speaking of which, i can’t believe i still haven’t posted pictures from china.
will do that soon i hope..

anyway, off to the airport.
til we meet again bitches!
thanks for all the stolen fire extinguishers,
tip to tip action, ghettotech & brown paper bags,
whiskey & sharpies, whip-its & jerk off circles in the middle of baseball fields,
dirty basslines at dirty undergrounds underneath dirty freeways,
house parties, beach parties, cabin parties at becca’s and veronica’s,
hohners, secret society, 2nd and crackson, killasubz, afterglo, brookdale lodge,
phuturo, 550, dna, an sibin, eklektic, new hack, acme, eufuckingphonic genesis…

chillits and sunset

scott and i drove four hours up north
past this dinky hick town called willits
to marinate with naked hippies and old school ravers.
i decided to leave my ghetto rigged_duct taped digital camera at home
and borrowed my dad’s old school ricoh slr.
i haven’t shot on an slr since my trip to vietnam.

the photographs were developed today
and more than half of them were blurry and over/under exposed..
*sigh* i’ve become rusty.

becca and alida.




caryn, representing massive south bay talent.

sunday afternoon,
on our way back,
we stopped by the sunset party in novato.


nat flies into town tomorrow. i’m so excited!

currently listening to:

oode 6

i am incredibly grateful for being able to attend
such a special event that celebrates
friendship, music and joie de vivre.


saturday night, in the middle of the field,
backs on the ground, hand in hand, head on belly,
leg over arm, head on shoulders, hand in hand in hand,
while we all stared at the sky,
i realized how precious you all were and

“how wonderful life is, now you’re in the world…”
