Diamond Eyes

It was about 3:30 now and the sun was just beginning to lower behind the buildings of Portland (which we could see perfectly from our high retreat.) We brought two sixers with us of dark beer. The camera was being passed around, to whoever had a purpose for it. Which is when the best pictures are snapped. Jonas brought his portable speakers and we plugged our ipods into them and played our favorite tunes while the sun became our height. A golden glow pierced to our diamond eyes. We caught it all on vintage brown film. A sweet fall afternoon, dipped into the evening pinch and danced around the thick of the dark. We had no plans for the morning, no plans for the night. Plans become too organized and too structured when you're watching the night sky.

Match Your Energy With Mine

My weekend has officially begun. This week was a little slow but I can barely remember it at the same time. Let's hope for a recharging weekend.... happy Halloween!

Very "new" band, just found this track on the webs. Love their lo-fi poppy sound (I think that's what it's called.)

Desire Lines

Listen to a happy song when you're feeling blue.

By the way, 3:00

Sea of Colors

This song is one of my favorite dub step tunes. Not really into the big, gritty bass thing but this song is totally the exception. It has so much more going on than just fidgety loud noise. Such an amazing song to play at a fun party, people go wild.

"they’re crazy to think they can stop me. every second of doubt is quickly diminished by the will to achieve something better than myself. If you want something, you have to go out to the park and get the damn thing."

Take Your Medicine

Saw Starfucker on Wednesday night. They were awesome live. All but one of them were decked out in dresses, body lights and wigs. I scored an awesome, roomy section right by the stage where I could enjoy the music and dance a little away from the mosh pit (yes, there was one.) I think they only played 6 or 7 songs but it was definitely worth the 15 bucks.

'Medicine' was my favorite tune they played. Happy Friday!

I heard this song a long time ago but someone put it on last night and I couldn't help but fall back into it. It's really smooth and can be played on repeat.

In Our Underwear

I like this song a lot. Good synth action, great for running around and exercising to- blasting at the end of the day when you feel accomplished.

"We're running down the street in our underwear, cause nothing ever happens here, nothing ever happens here. Oh my lord."

"Contrary to popular opinion, we have the power to create and manifest anything we want, the law of transmutation is very real and if you’re not happy with any situation it’s truly in your hands to change it to whatever you want."

Read this quote just now on I really dig that blog because of the personal look into the guy's emotions, advice, experiences. Not to mention all the cool tracks he posts.

Sitting here waiting for my 2:00 class, it's kind of weird that it starts so late. Doing my best to keep up with my assignments, although I haven't been hit with many yet.

Most of my thoughts are dedicated to the things I moved here for: the mindset, the "scene", music, photography, boys, girls, the urban lifestyle. I'm staying focused on the way I'd like to my life to be, because I know that is always a good driving force in making it happen. Concentration, action, bravery, these are all essential to making one's dreams come true. Sometimes I lose track of the bigger scheme of things (I've only been here for 2 1/2 weeks!) Patience is so important. If you believe and remember patience, then you know it is only a matter of time when things start to happen how you'd like them to. Just knowing this automatically gives you a sense of relief. There's no way things won't work out if your head is in the right place, you stay open-minded, and you keep trying.

"If you’re focusing on the past or the future so much, it means you’re not doing what you need to do this moment to change any of it. When you're not in the moment your really not even existing, think about it, the past is gone, the future is unknown so thinking about that leaves you in some sort of limbo world that has nothing to do with your reality right now – be present every day." - Et Musique Pour Tous

New and the Same

I've just come to Portland, Oregon to begin my new chapter. I'm living in the dorms, eating far too much at the buffet, and trying to become settled. Classes are fun and I've met some cool friends. Doing my best to keep trudging along in the face of a shocking, but pleasant transition. I guess this blog will be a place for me to jot down what I'm digging or communicate stuff I want to tell the world. In other words, a big collection of stuff that in a way describes me.

Til next time...
