such an infamous freedom, such a militant peace...

i just can't get enough of this (not at all recent) beautiful song lately. two gallants, "waves of grain."

and for more beauty, take a virtual trip to wyoming. i don't think my own eyes could see it this amazingly. eric hines, "wild wyoming, a summer of sunsets and dark skies."

i also really freaking love green tomato hot dog relish, which i have canned a metric f*ckton of this summer.
20110821. seriously, the green tomato hot dog relish is the best thing ever.

and our new perennial garden is pretty rad, too. my drawing, of which i was very proud:
20110813. i'm very proud of this drawing. part of the front yard perennial plan (tm).

and the initial planting! we've put in a couple of bushes on the corners, and it'll look better as the plants grow.

20110817. 14 baby pigs. pandemonium!

and chris ate a doughnut burger (the bun is two krispy kremes):

long time, no see... video version...

it has been a wild, awesome, fantastic summer. things just keep getting better.

rather than recount all the awesomeness (and since this blog morphed into a blog of general-awesomeness-and-things-i-like quite a while ago), we'll just go with that. music that makes me smile. things that are pretty/quirky/hilarious/just plain wrong. this will have to be the video version. photos to come in a future post, i think.

matt and kim, "daylight." i dare you not to smile.

jay-z with a cat in the back of a dirty restaurant i would probably frequent.

soul train! i want to dance and dress like EVERY PERSON in this video.

elliott smith, "angeles." it makes me miss him to listen to this.

i've recently been introduced to old school star trek - just finished the first season two nights ago! this is a clip of george takei (aka sulu) being freaking awesome.

john hopkins is pretty rad, too - "insides," live at the ICA. a friend turned me onto him recently.

and please, please, please - if you are reading this, PLEASE click the following link and select "i am under 21." i promise you will not be disappointed at the magic that ensues: black acre brewing co.
