H8


I shot these today in front of the California Supreme Court.

The moment of the day was when I rode my bicycle on the street which separated the two crowds of people backed by barricades and policemen. Not everyday do you get to ride your bike between to giant masses of competing people. I felt like I was Moses crossing the Red Sea or I was walking through the DMZ which separates North and South Korea.

What this image will mean in years to come...



His sign should say everyone because I think everyone is a pervert.



Debates Debates





Yes, I rode my bike alongside to get this shot.






Regarding some of these images, I really wanted to capture what hate looks like to me on the 5th of March, 2009 for documentary purposes.


And if you don't know, now you know:

Really!?! Tuesday

I never planned for this, but I HAD to add to the previous Tuesday post.

FORT PIERCE, Fla. - Authorities say a Florida woman called 911 three times after McDonald's employees told her they were out of Chicken McNuggets.

Let me pull up this quote: "This is an emergency. If I would have known they didn't have McNuggets, I wouldn’t have given my money".

... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

WTF? TUESDAY

I can only hope that you will enjoy this random information as much as I have.



A young Nebraskan man placed his 6 month old kitten named Shadow inside a 6x12 inch homemade bong in an attempt to calm the kitten down.

Yes, claustrophobia calms people and kittens down. By the way, try to appreciate the "ghetto-rigging" this man went through. He MacGyver'd his way to get high with a garden hose, a box and extensive use of duct tape. Good luck with the animal cruelty charge.

Former Taliban ambassador to Pakistan and former close to four year resident of Guatanamo Bay Detention Camp, Mullah Abdul Salaam Zaeef, loves his iPhone. "It's easy and it's modern and I love it" he said as he was pinching and pulling his fingers across the screen.

I wonder if he still gets mad when he sees a woman driving a car.

"My mom licked me - that was her punishment ... If I didn't listen ... she'd lick the side of my face or under my armpit ... She'd say, 'You came out of my vagina and I own every part of you'." -- Rosario Dawson in an interview to the New York Times



Ikea donates $48 million to UNICEF to help children in India.

While they're at it, they should donate their tasty foods from their cafeteria cuz you know I be cravin' them right now.


New research reveals women can identify a man's intention by the scent of his sweat. Using MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), researchers found that women's brains responded differently to the different types of sweat smelled: regular sweat and sweat while watching porno films. The sexual sweat activated a region in the brain that help recognize emotions and perceive things.

To conclude this entry, I will provide entertainment from a music video from Familjen. Jimmy turned me on to this Swedish artist back last year right before Coachella. This video won a Grammy award for best video in Sweden in 2007. Definitely one of my favorite music videos of all time.

Civic Musical Road by Honda


From Wikipedia:

"The Civic Musical Road was built on Avenue K in Lancaster, California, United States, on 5 September 2008. Covering a quarter mile stretch of road between 60th Street West and 70th Street West, the Musical Road used grooves cut into the asphalt to replicate the William Tell Overture. It was paved over on 23 September due to nearby residents complaining to the city council about noise levels; but after further complaints from city residents about its removal, work began to recreate it on 15 October 2008 on Avenue G between 30th Street West and 40th Street West, two miles away from the nearest residence. It opened two days later."





So amazing. If I were still living in Southern California and still driving my Honda Civic, I would probably take people there on a random note just to surprise them. Sometimes I have a mental daily dictionary which I myself provide the definitions of certain words to. Today, this would be under creativity.

Volkswagen Sunday

So I am supposed to chill for 24 hours, not do anything active and not eat Tapatio or anything spicy. Problem. Me and Tapatio... WE LIKE THIS (raises right hand and makes a cross with the middle and index finger) SON.

Sunday was nice. Cory sat outside parked with his 1962 Volkswagen Bug running until I woke up from a combination of the sound of the running engine and the voicemail I received from him. "Hey. Do you want to go off-roading?" he said from below. "Sure" I replied with my head sticking out the window. I put on the most expendable pieces of wardrobe I own, swapped the lens on the camera, and then I was out there door and we were on the road.

















I like it when photographs can look like paintings.





There is so much people have yet to see outside of the city of San Francisco.
