I've been eating fortune cookies all day, trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do with myself.

Yesterday I almost died.

I was climbing around on a little cliff face, my three friends and I were trying to "borrow" a rowboat for a little trip, and getting to the boat was kind of a sketchy process. I was walking along this rather steep part holding onto a big vine or something and it snapped. I fell 8 feet down, backward, down the cliff and landed on my neck in about 3.5 feet of water. 6 inches to the right the water was only about half a foot deep and 6 inches to the left there were huge rocks.

I don't know why I'm still alive, I'm trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do with myself. Something needs to change.

My head and legs are bruised, my hands and shins are cut to shit. I was wearing my favourite, most expensive camera at the time and I'm pretty sure it's fucked.

Holy crap. Holy crap.

This picture was taken at a truckstop on the highway on the way to montreal.
I'm not sure if I auto timed it or my father took it.


This is me, two summers ago. I flew from the Pacific Ocean, where I live, to the Atlantic ocean, where I grew up, to spend a few weeks with old friends and with family. The trip back to the Pacific involved a car ride with my father and nephew to Montreal, where I stayed in a hotel above the Jazz Festival for a few days, sweating and eating 99 cent pizza. I met up with my friend Sarah Michelle who decided to go west with me, so we made a sign that said JUST MARRIED and had a friend of hers drive us 20 minutes out of town to where the highway starts.

Apart from a day of solid rain in Western Ontario where we slept in a car in a junkyard, the whole trip went amazing and we got to Sarah's mom's house in High Level, Alberta in 4 days(!!). In High Level I planned to keep going north to Yellowknife to visit my friend Darren who works for CBC radio up there, but Sarah's mom insisted on buying the two of us Greyhound tickets to Vancouver, and who am I to refuse a free ride. That's all I'd been doing all week.

5000 miles in about a week and a half, and the whole thing cost $20 dollars, not counting the money I spent on beer in Montreal and whiskey on the road.

SHE WEARS BLACK JEANS. I WANT HER TO KISS THOSE BLACK JEANS INTO ME.

Tanis with a 40's wig on and her brains blown out. We rented the sketchiest hotel room we could find to take these pictures. The people who rented it to us thought we were making a porno because of all the cameras and lights we brought in + we said we only needed the room for a few hours. They told us to "make sure we balled up the blankets and put them in the corner when we were done." This is Taylor at the same shoot. He was doing most of the photos and I was doing lights and makeup. But of course I couldnt help but snap a few myself. I like this picture because most of Taylor is in focus, but from his elbow to the far left of the photo is all blurry. I have no idea why. Probably I was drunk.

last night.


so as it turns out i didnt stay home last night, chrissie called and told me we were going to a party and who am i to argue that? walked up to her house and listened to the new enslaved album then someone i've never met before drove us to the party. out behind the mall. as it turned out the party was for lame people only, shoes off people, drug dealers, people who dont like their houses messed up, people who like to talk to much when you really have to pee. we left at 11:30 and cabbed back downtown but everyone wanted to go top 40 dancing and i, still without identification, went home.

couple weeks ago, emily drinking behind the arcade.


i woke up today at 8 am. made sure the internet was. still O.K. and then i called some people. the tour van has been dead for two weeks, i've been walking to work and it's been fine and it's been cold but today i walked up the street and got it fixed. i called andy c. and told him to meet me downtown at 2 where we drank some beer and then went shopping for grey zip up hoodies. afterward we parked downtown and drank two more beer and then played airhockey for a while. i'm home now and it's 7:34 and i've got to get some work done. i'm going to screenprint some whales on something, or some shit like that. whales versus fucking squids. i'm going to listen to the misfits and maybe drink two more beers. i'm going to stay home on saturday and just do it because i lost my wallet with all my ID.
