Leaves and Twigs

There was a free day at the botanical gardens.

There were insects everywhere! I saw so many cicadas on my way there. I'm learning not to be weirded out by them. They are so massive! If you look at them for a loooong time, I guess they are kinda cute. Maybe it's just me though, lol!

I made a slideshow with some of my favorite pictures, but it's too fast(!!!) and it cuts out a couple of the pictures. I'll still link it here but if you'd like to view the photos in detail you can look at my flickr.

Song: Bibio - Mr. & Mrs. Compost

On a semi nature related note have you seen the video for FKA Twigs' Water Me? It's sorta unsettling, yet calming and it reminds me a lot of these paintings. I've been a fan of her music for a minute I hope this means she'll be putting out a full length album soon :3

All poorly done screencaps by me.

How I wish this film had actually been completed.

Blue Monday

As far a titles go this is the most unimaginative one I've had in a while.

Blu - Amnesia (Instrumental)

I had big plans for my weekend, but as per usual I spent Friday and Saturday in a hermitic state.
great concept. laughably bad edits.

While listening to Blu's entire discography, I made this quick and terrible doodle:
He's one of my favorite rappers. I couldn't stop there though! I had to think about a couple of my favorite things that also have to do with blue :-)

I streamed a couple new albums. Currently digging Lee's new album, "Noname", a bunch of Soul and RnB reworks. I bet it'd sound amazing on vinyl...*le sigh*

The bluish look in these pictures was unintentional. Blame wrong camera settings and sunsets :-p

Sunday, I managed to pull myself out of bed to see some of the new Living Walls murals. 

I've mentioned the event on here before, but Living Walls is maybe one of my favorite things about Atlanta. Every summer internationally known street artists come to our city and put up dozens of murals on vacant buildings and walls. There is a week long celebration with movie screenings, gallery showings, lectures, concerts, block parties, and even a bike tour! I managed to miss all of that this year (boohoo) so I did a self guided tour.

Just an aside,but I'm eternally envious of you ladies who can ride bicycles in cute clothes and seemingly not break a sweat/ get natural looking photos! After about 5 minutes my shorts felt like a tourniquet and my thighs were like, "NO. Stop."

I only got a few photos because, frankly, I was tired. Feel free to check out the gallery here and video footy here

The rest of my day was spent catching up on work that could have been done ages ago...

How was your weekend?

Allan Kingdom - Achilles

I listen to this song a minimum of 20 times a day. No lie.

This was supposed to go in a post I'm making, but will likely NEVER get around to publishing. Guys, pray for me (or make a blood sacrifice if that's your thing) that I will some day get my life in order and have room for fun and regularly updating this farce of a blog...
