The lack of posting in the last few weeks stems from me not being productive when I open my laptop and also the lack of postable stories. I am working on two wonderful stories now, but can’t put them on the web before they are finished.

Andrew Jackson Jihad records an E.P.

with one comment

Thanks to Sean, Ben, Ryan and Jalipaz for letting me come along to witness the first recording of an Andrew Jackson Jihad E.P. at audioconfusion in Mesa. It’s a beautiful studio and the guys sound great. They are playing tonight at The Trunk Space if anyone is down to go.

Lily’s B-Day Barbecue at Canyon Lake

leave a comment »

Sunday barbecue at Canyon Lake in honor of our lovely Lily… man, it was beautiful out there. Can’t wait to go back!

Happy Birthday, Lily!

Mike: from mixmaster to grill-master.




On a side note: I ran into the people that were nearly-nude sunbathing next to us at the gas station in AJ… they glared at me and the lady clutched her little chihuahua. I don’t think they liked the Indian music…

Family fun day

I spotted these people while driving in Mesa Saturday. When I grow old, if I have a husband, I hope he drives me around in a sidecar.

I decided to come up north on Saturday, and we went on the most awesome hike. Too bad I didn’t bring my camera, but I got the aftermath (dirty shoes and silly faces)

Grandpa’s doing great.

My mom has the greenest thumb… I need to take her lead and get going on the gardening.

Accident on Mill Avenue

Thanks to Chris Ramirez for spotting this exciting spot news. Too bad there was no real news, but at least I can put them up here, albeit a little late.

Kimya Dawson in Tucson

with one comment


Spring break is now upon us, and I decided to start it off by seeing Kimya Dawson, Sunday night in Tucson- thanks again to Nick for inviting me along. The show was awesome and the space was really cool, both literally and physically. It was freezing, and kind of hard to see around, but made for nice shots. My Sun Devil heart hates to say it, but Tucson is pretty rad.

Weird lens flare effect on this one… I didn’t photoshop it at all except for crop and curves. The church must have sensed my atheism and sent for back-up.
