cabbagetown ghostie

in just a few weeks sara is moving up to chattanooga with me. one of the things i'm going to miss most about being in atlanta ever other weekend is the cabbagetown area. sara lives just south of i20 off of boulevard, so we've frequently grabbed brunch at the carroll street cafe. mmm...cabbagetown breakfast!

yellow ghostie

cannibal phish

last september, about a month after i got back from coventry (phish's last show) i decided to make a low-fi video for their new single, "the connection."

actually, i didn't decide to do that until i had already shot some video of fish and turtles eating goldfish (the baked cheesey ones). also, i didn't yet have a copy of the song, so i semi-legally copied it off the air after calling my local station and requesting it. i did end up buying the album, so i figure it's more legal than not.

anyway, after re-watching the footage of those fish fighting over cute little cheese-cracker versions of themselves...i really thought it was funny. i guess i had a mental picture of that scene in the adams family, where the girl (i don't know her name) is asked if she wants to buy some girl scout cookies, and she responds, "are they made from real girl scouts?"

so, at some point later that evening, i started correlating the pseudo-cannibalistic nature of those fish with phish. i know it's a weird analogy, but i don't care. the end result:
(phish radio requset)+(fish-feeding footage)=(humourous video)

starwipe aaaand cut.

oddest marketing tool i've ever seen

i would've loved to have been in the meeting at puffs when they decided to give this the "go ahead" as their latest campaign. "the fight against mucus!"


somehow, sliding down a nostril can be both gross and educational.

dogwood festival '05

FIRST POST!!! (had to do it)

anyway, my girlfriend, sara, and i went to the dogwood festival in atlanta this past weekend. we've both been stalking artists from previous festivals and this time we had money. not much, but we did have money specifically tagged for buying art.


the fourth pull-chain from the right will soon grace our kitchen...our ridiculously purple kitchen :)
