Saturday afternoon we headed over to Rock Paper Scissors to get a short overview of what opening the shop consists of. This nice woman Emily showed us around and answered the questions we had. This is going to be a wonderful place to hang out in and volunteer. They have industrial sewing machines and a bunch of material. SUPER STOKED. So many things that I can learn from. Business 101. Awesome.

Later on in the day we hung out with Ali's dog Sabaa in the backyard. So much trash that we decided to make an alter/which tree out of it all. We found some amazing shit. Allot of action figures, pennies and utensils. Right when we thought we were done I found a cat skeleton on the way out. Everything we found was essentially just run off from the hills.

Orion met up with us at the flee market in the morning and ended up hanging all day. It's nice to see this boy's face again.

Monica has an amazing studio/fort that is filled and so organized.

Hippie jams

Introducing Miss. Donna and Ali wearing the headbands that I made tonight. An awesome project that I got myself into while watching Cool Runnings. It's strange because the materialS that I used were all found in Ali's piles and it's all things that I would collect for myself at home. Radical friends.

The pile

Day 1:
One down and added to the pile.
The collection started the last time I was out here in Oakland and has now flourished into an amazing river of eyes.

award winning found art

My great-grandmother was an award winning tatter. She would make snowflakes like these that were crazy amazing. Crystal found a bag full of these at diggers during her last hurrah of the "place of dig" before she took off to Florida. A great find to end the year and I'm so ready for the treasures that will be had within the year of 08. Happy New Year.

Project: Carifornia

During my visit in Oakland last year, LOLO and I helped a friend of ours move. Her grandmother insisted that we accept money from her for our troubles. Since we didn't have the sorta/kinda friends that we had in Minneapolis, we had to pay full price for the books. We made them a bit larger than the last zines and made a few more. We used our free money and had just enough to get them printed. We also thought this book was really funny, for whatever reason people thought otherwise. 'Tis cool -- foreverstoned.

This is a small zine that LOLO and I created over the course of two days while he was in town for a visit. We will always be Priming and Prepping for the end. Penis drawing are so 2006.
