10 year anniversary [Friday
March 11th, 2011
[ mood | busy ]

So, hello LJ world. It really has been a while.

Took a look back into the past, and hell oh hell...it has been 10 years that I've have this concoction of my mind's writing poops throughout time.

Pretty intriguing digital world we live in.

So wow, who uses this thang anymore? After facebook there is really no need, eh?

Life changes to quickly...I'm in my OWN apartment writing this, about to open my OWN photography studio (well, shared with two others). I have a BFA in a crazy major, and have started to work with big clients doing videography.

My first wedding was 5 years ago.

I'm now on about my 15th.

Pretty insane.

Just finished shooting my first music video with a girl I shot as one of my first models about 3-4 years ago. Oh life.

So yeah, the moving image seems to be taking over, but I'm currently editing my latest wedding and the still moments STILL give me chills beyond compare. I'm so in love with what I do, twitterpatted beyond belief, thankful to have AMAZING friends that hold my life up, and family full of delicious love.

Now all I need is a man. My projected meeting is this winter, but I'll take fate when it decides to spank me.

Hope you all are lovely, oh beautiful LJ friends.

and wtf i manages to not update last year at ALL. hah!

I now intern at Lustre Communications

lost lost lost.

hey people what is up out there?

[tantsi minus, gorod]

I'm walking by an avenue, by the night city
I'm walking because I’ve got legs
And i know how to walk… that's why I'm walking
Walking towards colorful shop windows
Luxurious limos rush on by
Carrying women with burning eyes,
Cold hearts and golden hair

Tale-City, Dream-City
Lost in its webs, you're lost forever
Swallowing its air of colds and draughts
Smell of gasoline and fine perfumes

Starless sky, it doesn't matter
Most of houses have their own stars here
Electricity, gas, telephone and running water
Communal heaven with no worries at all

ANYONE!!!! Do you know if it's possible to add effects to a region in garageband, not having to add a new track. Also a fade. Come on, does Garageband suck THIS MUCH that you can't edit part of the track separately without adding a whole effect onto the WHOLE track...wtf....

IM DOING A PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW ON ISRAELIs or people affiliated with Israel who are in their 60s [turning 59-69]

IF YOU KNOW ANYONE WHO CAN HELP ME PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY NEXT WEEK!! I just need a few people for this one, then it will go NATIONALLY, so if you know someone that doesn't live here or can't do it in the next week, please send them my info.

Here is more about the show:

Israel is turning 60 years old and what better way to celebrate than with beautiful portraiture of its people. I'm a professional photographer and student at the University of Washington working on a photography show featuring Israeli-borns and/or people who have lived there/have stories about Israel and who are between 59(turning 60 this year)-69 years old. This show will be presented at the University of Washington HUB Gallery and will go on nationally throughout the year. If you would like to participate or know of anyone PLEASE LET ME KNOW! ONE WEEK LEFT!

APRIL 29-MAY 6th

Artist Statement:

A Face to the Age: Israel at 60

The wrinkles we wear are formed from both years of happiness as well as sadness; the canvas of Israelis in their 60s is distinctly reminiscent of Israel's topography that its people have been cultivating for years.
Turning sixty isn't easy, especially for a country like Israel. Some countries are hundreds of years old but don't even scratch the surface of what Israel means to millions of people. The goal of this exhibit is to give a face to the age of 60 and bring out the most important part of Israel, its people. Let's celebrate the wide array of diversity Israel has and feature the many people represented in this land who live amongst us.

someone insisted that i looked like Goldfrapp yesterday and called me that all night.
it was awesome because i actually know what the band is for once and completely love her music.
i've gotten some weird celeb look-a-likes in my life...proceed for further intrigue...

(shes way too skinny though)

got her a few times:
amy irving (spielberg's wife) (it's the hair...)

good ole keri russell (it's the hair, duh)

hahaha who's that?

and this one i don't really get, i think it's the face shape? i've gotten it MANY times.
i have weird stories where the person didn't even know my name and thought i looked like her.

Julia Stiles
(one of my favorite movies...i miss heath!)

and one of my favorite pictures of myself to compare?

if i have time later i'll try to find some pics that actually resemble the above ;)?

oh and random, my friend in cali met snoop dogg and said she would show him this thing i made haha! so i know snoop dogg, kinda. (no joke! the heads of her and snoop is off of her camera)

Don't send a lame Snoop_Dogg eCard. Try JibJab Sendables!

[ mood | sore ]

between wanting to update my jubruk.livejournal.com and here, over there is a more creative space for me at the moment.

anyhow, in terms of life...it's been a crazy quarter.

I made 3 movies, but really it was 9 because i spent way more time helping my friends on their movies than my own anyway. Facebook has some stills and I'm working on figuring out how to put the quicktimes on youtube, although the quality is horrendous and i'd almost rather not.

My photography is doing alright. I did a few photoshoots this quarter that were some of my best work. Also up on facebook. The other day the sun was shining so lovely through the blinds like i always love and i got an urge to snap some photos. i took about 50 of my dad reading the paper, he looked so damn cute, even as he was saying mean things about how i should stop taking photos of him and do something productive, lol. he's full of it and knows he loves it ;)
here are some of them, i'm finally using some of my flickr because photobucket sucks.

[[[sorry for those that saw these on my other journal]]]
this is me:

[[inside my house]]

see how different it can seem through the lens?

the shadows run deep in these walls...

i've sat here for years...but today i looked instead

i've been working on a physical album for this couple too, they're too cute for words:

[[they played apples to apples and other board games during their wedding reception!! :):)]

spread the word guys, i need another wedding!! i'm cheap, friendly and invisible!

what would i give to quit school next year and just book myself silly with weddings, portraits, fashion, anything, everyone, photography, live, breathe it, lock myself in a room with it.
it feels like that could only happen if i ever move out :(

i am eating a tipe right now. and it's damn good.

this break:
-redo my website. this has to be done.
-insert something here but i forgot what oh yeah i'm singlee yeahhhh so "enjoy singularity"
-start dancing again
