Crucial potlucks. I'm the talentless cook out of everybody so I brought an extra large, family size, bottle of itoen green tea. Which is actually good, I just always feel like a dipshit cause if it's one thing I can't do is bring something good to a potluck. I'll have to work on that.

the bidding begins after dinner

my sorry pile of things

katie decided to bring all of her old skate shoes. ALL OF THEM.

sara had a stack of old folded skate shirts. I took the liberty of unfolding all of them, refolding them, and taking a picture at this privileged look into skate shirt history. where were you when that shirt came out? kind of thing.

piles for miles

brandy might kill me for putting this photo up. but it's too fucking good. here we have a sleeveless rush t shirt, a long black something or other under that, my old weird surf soccer shirts, and an orphan pair of converses that katie owned in high school and tried to make fringed mocassin high tops out of. very future spicoli-esque.

i saw sara trying this on and all i could think was, " who the fuck brings their bra and panties to a clothing swap?" and then it was pointed out that this was a swimsuit. i call this the paranoid gym changer, very risque, flash dance inside the house.

i don't know what i call this. katie hulking into katie after work at a corporate job? waterbros half tee.

i like this one. katie is part of a mildly successful, electropop, swedish trio who enjoys IRONIC t shirts and channeling nico from the velvet underground.

my only come up the whole night. which is alright because I am actually in the packrat family. and the actual outfit i came with cause i ran out of jeans makes me look like i dressed up in discarded clothing already.

that chick is the president of our potluck clothing swaps. somebody needs to tell her though.

Joe Wong is not a genius. He was a miracle, but that ended soon after birth. However, Joe Wong has come a long way from a slimy fertilized egg in China to a unique comedian with a dry sense of humor in America .

Joe Wong is one of the best known comedians in the New England area and is a favorite at comedy clubs, corporate functions, fundraisers and colleges.

Joe Wong is not in this picture. Taken from

This guy is awkward as shit but it works for me. The jokes I find really funny because though he is foreign born, and by many indications fulfills the whole stereotypical smart, nerdy, asian chemist thing, he is remarkably dry yet optimistic and quirky. I mean how many nerdy asian guys with thick accents find enjoyment in cleverly vocalizing their odd assimilation experiences? not many. and even fewer actually succeed in pleasing humor. there are a lot of asian american comedians who i find cheesy and terrible. comedians who come from ethnic backgrounds can obviously use their unique upbringings to present interesting perspectives and jokes, but when people just use the whole my mom is a crazy asian lady that sounds uneducated and demonic, it gets old. needless to say with time, those kinds of unoriginal sets reinforce stereotypes more than anything. joe wong's got a leg up on all those bitches.

Today this guy came in the shop looking for some chukka lows. I asked him what size he was and he told me 7.5 inches. Let me illustrate that this man was burly as fuck, tall, and definitely didn't wear middle school boy sized shoes. He was obviously not talking about his shoe size. so I said "no, your shoe size." and he confirmed my suspicions by saying," oh well that's my cock size. just incase you wanted to know." Great. No I didn't want to know that. So He bought some shoes and left with his donkey dick in his hands. weirdo.


holy fucking random. uncle jessie with a weirdo baby bouncing beach boys cover.

is a major Jungian concept. Jung's ontological position for understanding the psyche is based upon esse in anima (Being-in-Soul), which refers primarily to the continually creative act of fantasy; that is, the psyche creates reality every day.

Jung states that our psychic substance consists of images, and that all consciousness and experience of the inner-outer world depends on 'fantasy-images' of the psyche.

It is imagination that creates our images of nature, that creates our worlds and shapes our material realities. Everything is in image before it is in body or mind, and what we see around us is already constructed through the images (guiding fictions) that we carry of it. Paradoxically, we live in the midst of these images and yet they are also within us. As in dreams, the psychic world is experienced empirically as inside us and yet it encompasses us with images.

Since our psychic reality consists solely of images, which, in turn, are structured by archetypes, image-making is recognised as a royal road to soul-making. For Jung, to be 'in soul' is to experience the fantasy in all realities and the basic reality of fantasy.


It is a woman's outstanding characteristic that she can do anything for the love of a man. But those women who can achieve something important for the love of a thing are most exceptional, because this does not really agree with their nature. Love for a thing is a man's prerogative.

Unconscious assumptions or opinions are the worst enemy of woman; they can even grow into a positively demonic passion that exasperates and disgusts men, and does the woman herself the greatest injury by gradually smothering the charm and meaning of her femininity and driving it into the background. Such a development naturally ends in profound psychological disunion, in short, in a neurosis.
