Lightfoils - The care tonight

Things that happen on MARTA

Tonight, on my way back from the kid’s play rehearsal, a gentleman approached me trying to sell me cologne. There were a couple of them going over the train car asking around.
I’m usually really bad at dealing with sales people, I don’t know how to say no, but sometimes I have the perfect answer to make them go away without having to lie. Like when, back in Barcelona, some phone company would call offering to switch to them and I would tell them that my father worked for Telefonica (major phone company there) and that they were not going to be able to beat our deal. Or when the other day at Costco somebody tried to tell us about a cable deal and we told him that we had a 2 year contract with Comcast that we couldn’t break.
So when he approached me and asked me if I liked to smell nice for the ladies (I decided not to use the gay card here), I genuinely told him that I don’t use cologne. I said that all I do is put on some deodorant (though most of the time I just use my alumbre stone, but I didn’t want to get too specific).
So when he asked me if I just liked my own smell (maybe he didn’t phrase it exactly like that) I said yes. He went on to say that I just liked to stink and I laughed and said yes. Then he and his pals proceeded to laugh, but I felt great. I’ve got nothing to be ashamed of.

Blackstone Rngrs - Endless sky

— 1 week ago with 2 notes
#Blackstone Rngrs  #Endless sky  #music 
Yesterday was a productive day, today, not so much

I had for the first time cookie crunch cereal
Quite disappointed
I managed to work out, my back feels way better
I had two auditions
One in the morning, for a commercial
I met Lilina, who’s also with the same agent I am, great gal from Venezuela
Biked to get to the audition and back and managed to look presentable and not smell
I didn’t get to work at the office
Despite music midtown, I managed to get to the second audition fairly on time
I had to become a monster and attack an actress
Got the part
I will be the non human form of Dracula, I have no lines, but I get to wear prosthetic make up and fight all the time on stage
We were going to go to six flags for the GeorgiaTech night
but we decided to go to the Mexican restaurant at the end of the street and watch this is were I leave you instead
It was ok
Exactly what I was expecting
Though Tina Fey’s acting during dramatic scenes took me out of the movie
When I went to bed though
my mind kept racing
thinking about friends I don’t talk to anymore
what the fuck I’m doing with my life
and Hazel st (can’t take that song off of my head)
Today just home depot and dinner with Elena and Chris (and baby Natalie) at a Thai restaurant full of hotties (it’s right by an LA Fitness)
We were late because I decided to workout double today
Michael was pissed
After that, ice cream with Barry and back to his place to see his new birds and get tomatoes of his garden

I’ve had 5 seconds of this song stuck in my head for two days. The pleasure I’m experiencing right now as I hear it and I am able to fill in the holes.
I got the lyrics and commentary from Deerhunter’s blogspot. 
I may do it alone, I may do it with Michael, it may be riding the bike with my ipod or in the car, but I’m riding on Hazel St listening to this song next time I go to Marietta.

Hazel St: 

There was no connecting my actions with words
In the bright sunlight, the movement of birds
The car ride home, was blinded again
The light would not focus the light would not bend
There’s no use calling I know what you’d say
Over and over it ended today
Worlds lost their meaning and could not explain
Why the subject was always just out of frame 

I was sixteen
I lived on Hazel Street
Protect me from the scene
And guide me with your heat 

Ice forms in sheets
There melting in the street 

(This goes back to the whole sixteenth year of my life spent in a hospital bed thing. I have major issues about it and have recently started going to therapy and am back on antidepressents. Obviously as so many of you have noticed, my body is fucked up. I never really recovered from all that surgery and stuff. This song is kind of like a jack off fantasy about what it would have been like if i had been the person i wanted to be physically (i.e. healthy, cute, whatever…) and lived on Hazel St which is this quaint little street of the town square in downtown Marietta, Georgia.. It’s just a fantasy about being normal. Its kind of prefaced with an argument or a conflict or a relationship breakdown, the kind of things that make me fantasize about having been born normal even more.)

The Diatomist from Matthew Killip on Vimeo.

THE DIATOMIST is a short documentary about Klaus Kemp, master of the Victorian art of diatom arrangement.

Diatoms are single cell algae that create jewel-like glass shells around themselves. Microscopists of the Victorian era would arrange them into complex patterns, invisible to the naked eye but spectacular when viewed under magnification.The best of these arrangements are stunning technical feats that reveal the hidden grandeur of some of the smallest organisms on Earth. Klaus Kemp has devoted his entire life to understanding and perfecting diatom arrangement and he is now acknowledged as the last great practitioner of this beautiful combination of art and science. THE DIATOMIST showcases his incredible work.

Soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bernard Herrmann and Cults Percussion Ensemble.

MATTHEW KILLIP is an English filmmaker living in New York. His documentaries have been broadcast on UK television and exhibited in festivals including Sundance and True/False.

That’s one of the prettiest things I’ve seen in a long time

I was ten minutes in the car, on our way to R Thomas’s, listening to Georgia State University radio, during one of those shows that makes it really worth it.
I tried to shazam a song, knowing that we were not going to be in the car long enough for me to figure out what it was through the proper channels. But it didn’t work, it got a completely different song, but I actually like it. So I thought I’d share it.

Chronicles of a late bloomer (I think this must be Vol. III)

In the last few days I’ve said goodbye to Laura Linney in the big C (I was kind of disappointed after the first season, but I stuck with it just out of loyalty to her performance, though I liked the last season)
Then, finally (after almost two years since we started), I finished Battlestar Galactica. I wish I had seen it when I went to the convention, there’s so many questions I have now that I could have asked then.
And the ultimate proof of my taste for lost causes. When I hurt my back last week, I had to work from home everyday, so I took on a show I had been wanting to watch for a long long time. If I’ve ever been frustrated by show’s cancellations, this is going to be a big one. 
Right now I’m watching the last episode of Carnivale and I’m afraid of how devastated I’m going to be once it’s over.

Roommate just showed me this and I’m in love

How come no one told me there was a new Beach House song?
You should be ashamed, people.
