I went to a drive in a couple weeks ago with my mom and saw "The Strangers." It was a double feature, but we didn't stay for "Prom Night." We went again last week and saw "Don't Mess with the Zohan" and "Jumper." It was so rad. They have the best food ever, and it's such a mom and pop thing. There should be way more drive in theaters in America.

Why why WHY isn't he getting impeached? I refuse to celebrate the 4th of July this year. Not when this war criminal is president. Why would I want to celebrate our freedom while our government is oppressing other countries and people? If that's what our 'freedom' is built on, I don't want it.

I've wanted a messenger bag FOREVER but none of them seem just right. So I made my own! I'm thinking of putting some of these up for sale sometime, if anyone shows interest in them. If not, I'm still really happy because I have one I LOVE!
This bag has a Palestinian flag on it, and a quote from a Rage Against the Machine song (Voice of the Voiceless). It reads, "You'll never silence the voice of the voiceless."
I'm so psyched about having such a personalized bag! YAY!

So I joined a new project on Flickr! It's called 365 days object project. You pick one object and you take a picture of it in different settings everyday for a year! I joined a little late, of course, but it's okay. I chose my Chuck Taylors for my object, because I just got them on the 14th and it will be interesting to see them change. I love this project so much! You can see my progress here!

So an Etsy friend of mine recently emailed me and told me about a horrible tragedy.
If you think you might know someone who wants a dress like this, please spread the word.

I recently ran across a website that greatly captured my interest.
It tells of the art, travels, and life of a woman named Mary and her family.
Mary runs a shop called MothDesigns, on Etsy. She sells incredible T Shirts, featuring arabic words or sayings, and handbags and purses that tell stories of Moroccan women and girls she knows. One example of her work is the Chaimae shoulder bag, which tells the following story:
"chaimae is my sister-in-law. she is 10 years old. 3 years ago, when i was last living in morocco, she was avidly exploring the early realization of her femininity--strutting around in her mother’s worn pumps, slinging her pocketbooks over her shoulder. when i visited her earlier this year, i saw a new reserve in her eyes--her hair grown long, her book bag grown heavy. i imagine this bag on her shoulder--all her very own--after practicing for a few years with her mother's."
The Chaimae Shoulder Bag
Mary's website offers a unique view of a world that is seemingly, somehow, unexplored. Her art is a reflection of an attempt to bring people together, and to educate the world about our brothers and sisters in the Middle East/Northern Africa. This fascinating blog is definitely worth reading on a daily basis. Also, please visit her Etsy shop at:

I ran across a website called God Hates Fags today:
And I was disgusted. The people who run it, the Westboro Baptist Church, are purely hateful and intolerant of EVERYONE. APPARENTLY, God hates American soldiers, homosexuals, Mexicans, Canadians, and the Swedish and Irish. Members of the church often show up at the funerals of American soldiers wielding signs that read, "Thank God for Dead Soldiers" and "America=Fag Nation." Their hate is pretty much blind, they'll hate anyone for anything. Here's that sick bastard Fred Phelps saying it himself:
Honestly, if someone came to a funeral of one of MY family members or friends and tried to pull this crap, I'd want to kill them. What sad, sick, pathetic, lonely, hateful, ignorant people.

Finally, I've cranked out an anti war collage. Here's to the crappy government and pointless war! (I wish I didn't have to use the glue I used. I should have just picked up a glue stick. I keep forgetting though.)

I wish I wasn't
An insomniac with dreams
Every second is a waking moment
Life is an infomercial
It's pointless and never ending
Sleep looks like a vacation
That I can't afford
I'm stuck in this cubicle
Every second of my days
Not so much a poem as it is random thoughts.
