The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Such a good book...I think I'll read it again soon, there's so much to it. Would definitely reccomend it...although it's not neccesarily a light read, you have to get pretty into it. Anyone seen the movie? I've heard it's not as great...

Ryan McGinley


Meet Ryan McGinley. He's a photographer, and pretty fantastic. His pictures have a dream-like feel to them, they're pretty awesome. The pictures below are from "I know where summer goes" and "moonmilk". Also famous for portraits of Kate moss, and a series of actors for the NY Times magazine. He also was the photographer for Stella McCartneys recent ad campaign...the one with the disney characters, and one of his photos is the Album cover for Sigur Ros's "með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust." look him up :)

Post-Woodstock

So as some of you may know, this past summer was the 40th anniversary of woodstock...and if yours was anything like mine then it was awesome. But now that autumn's slowly crept in, the summer clothes get packed away and the winter boots come out, I can't help but wonder what the autumn after woodstock felt like. Did all those infatuated hippies high as a kite come down into a post-woodstock depression? Or was it fantastic and life-altering enough to put them on a permanent high for the next couple of years? Now that autumn's here there's an inevitable melancholy that comes with the end of summer, but suppose from here on it's up to you whether you look forward to a new season or spend your time missing the summer.
...the couple in the photo below are still together today :)

Scotland

Was in Scotland over Autumn break to do some Uni-junting. Went to St Andrews, Edinburgh, and pretty much everywhere in between. Fell in love with Edinburgh, it really is a gorgeous place and it has a good vibe to it. Here are some picture
