And one may wonder, how are you getting through all of this? I and I would simply reply, “God and some Bob.”

You know, and I know
I flow some old funky shit
You know I had to right?! I will always remember to not forget this. Currently drowning in nostalgia in the middle of London’s cold, cruel and callous climate. I call it cruel and callous because it has made people so grumpy. The vibe here is dormant, so I’ll continue to remember and drown in my dreams.
So I’m back in London. It’s been over a week, and things have started to sink in. Everything. Everything is everywhere and I feel like I don’t have any control. I’ve been California dreaming for a while and so decided to scan some pictures I took on my Minolta last year when I moved there for some time,
wow that sounds so long ago! I was happily scanning pictures I developed back in LA, and then I glanced at the clock, it’s 3:30AM. It’s Monday morning again! My mum is going to wake me up in 3 hours to put a french braid in her hair, I know right?! I’ve got to unpack my stuff and give clothes to charity, and then go to uni for one bloodclart lecture. I hope Monday gives me clarity and strength, Lord knows I need it…
So I posted this picture because it makes me chortle. This is the horny man. As you can see, he has stuck horns on his forehead. I took this on Venice Beach on labor day weekend of last year. To many people, this guy may seem weird or strange but I think he’s super special. I remember talking to him briefly and he revealed his age, which surprised me because I think he looked good for his age. He approached all people who’s eyesight crossed his. My friends thought he was weird but I didn’t. He made me laugh so hard. I look at this picture and it reminds me just how special he is. Whenever I see this picture, it has the power of making me laugh with tears and I begin to reminisce over Venice Beach and how fascinating she can be. And I love Venice Beach for giving me this horny man.
These pictures are 4 of 400+
(((and I’m talking 400 analogue-made pictures that haven’t been scanned so)))
…bear with me
I’ll also start making compilations bi-monthly?! We’ll see 🙂
