Sunday Sharing

Well Hi there !! Another week that started off not great and ended up being not that bad. I've been super busy with school and this coming week is going to be no exception because the lovely beauty of my studio classes is that all my final projects are due during dead week, aka this week. I can't believe i'm about to be a senior in college everything is so surreal right now. Anyways I hope you're all having a lovely Sunday i'm off to do homework.

  Found this today and I love him and his new album :

Eric Hutchinson - "Talk is Cheap"

Gotye - "Somebody I Used to Know"

   
Dave Matthews - "Old Dirt Hill"

   
Jack Johnson ft. G. Love & Special Sauce - "Rodeo Clowns"

   
B.o.B. - "So Good"


Carlos Berdonatti - "The Little Things"


Goo Goo Dolls - "Black Balloon"

Meiko - "Boys with Girlfriends"

Jam of the week of course :


 This last one is a girl I grew up with (we actually had a band together when we were little "The Downtown Babes" we were awesome) and she had all the singing talent needless to say! She's dropping her first album this summer and I really like this song so enjoy and support her :)

Maroon 5 - I love you

Too Good to wait ..... I have an unhealthy obsession with Maroon 5 and Adam Levine in general. I'm pretty convinced the band got together and wrote this for me. 



I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember,
The people we used to be...
It's even harder to picture,
That you're not here next to me.

You say it's too late to make it,
But is it too late to try?
And in our time that you wasted
All of our bridges burned down

I've wasted my nights,
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed,
Still stuck in that time,
When we called it love,
But even the sun sets in paradise

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist,
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairy tales are full of shit
One more fucking love song, I'll be sick.

Oh, you turned your back on tomorrow
'Cause you forgot yesterday.
I gave you my love to borrow,
But you just gave it away.

You can't expect me to be fine,
I don't expect you to care
I know I've said it before,
But all of our bridges burned down

I've wasted my nights,
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed,
Still stuck in that time,
When we called it love,
But even the sun sets in paradise

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If happy ever after did exist,
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairy tales are full of shit
One more fucking love song, I'll be sick.

Now I'm at a payphone

Summer is practically here...

...well about three weeks away and i'll be back in the Ham for the summer.Back to summer school at Jeff State and Summer Camp Counselor job. I LOVE summer i have yet to meet someone who hates it. And this summer will be the first summer i'm of age in the lovely Birmingham city so i can't wait to see how different my experience with the city is. One thing i'll be doing this summer (and Anna too) is losts of music concerts, big and small. Fingers crossed me and Anna will be at hangout music festival, Gavin Degraw and Colbie Caillat, A Rocket to the Moon with All American Rejects, Warped Tour, Secret Stages, and anything else that pops up that's of interest to us. It's going to be a music filled summer and i'm pretty dang excited about it. 

Since it's going to be a music filled summer Anna and I get to be the true flower childs that we are and show our hippie hipster colors. I stumbled across these awesome flower accessories at FreePeople.com and because I can't reason with myself to spend the money on them I'm going to figure out a DIY way to recreate my own creation of them but I just thought they were super cute and summer perfect especially for concert season !!

Anywho i'm having an interesting wednesday, I drew my first naked figure drawing model this morning. An experience i've been dreading to discover but thank goodness it was a girl and it actually wasn't that bad. Once I got into the swing i was more focused on general line moments rather than the actual object i was drawing. I've got photography here in a bit and I have some film i'm dying to develop. Then it's chapter and the BINGO. I'm starting to love my wednesday routines. hope your all having a great day !!

Instant Monday

 Hello Hello one and all ((or for the most part one and, well just one hey Anna !!)) I had to drop off my work at the gallery today for The BFA Exhibition show. It's a showcase of current BFA students work at the University. You could submit three pieces for consideration and all three of my photographs were chosen!! It's still pretty surreal for me that I will be a gallery shown artist starting Thursday. I finally feel like my passion in life is headed somewhere as corny as that sounds. The three black and white prints below are whats being shown, I  am pretty proud of them if I do say so myself and honestly proud of my self for putting myself out there as an artist which quiet frankly is hard for me to do. My art work is the most personal thing about me and I'm very cautious as to who I will allow to judge that side of me .... I guess now i'll have to start getting over that little issue. 


Along with all the excitment me and Anna have started a vlog again if you havent seen her blog you should check it out HERE. She's a pretty fantastic person but after further adooo here is the vlog for last week  ...



hope you all enjoy it as much fun as we have making it. And just so it's stated we are doing this for ourselves not for anyone else. We just feel this is a time in our lives we don't wanna forget we're both about to be seniors in colleges and our lives are changing and growing so rapidly these days we wanna record the moments for ourselves. It'll be up every sunday so look forward to that. 
And here are the usual Instagrams from last week :


1) My little brother and me at one of his high school baseball games
2) Sketching in the art quad for my drawing II class
3) My set up for the BFA review (which i passed in case you missed it)
4) Cooper sleeping
5) A Sandwhich negative print for my experimental assignment in photography
6) Me and my new friend Shelby (i'm a nugget)
7) Anna the model
8) Shelby not doing so well in our ring of fire card game
9) Cooper face
10) Cooper kisses
11) And Anna the hippie grandmother that she really is

hope you all's Monday was as good as mine, even if it is a Monday.

Sunday Sharing

This has been one of the most stressful crazy weeks of my life to date. I passed my BFA review after much build up and terrifying anticipation but I passed so i'm officially an art student folks. Even better news is all three of the pieces I could put up to be considered for the BFA exhibition were chosen so starting Thursday I'll be a gallery shown artist. It's all incredible for me I finally feel like i'm headed somewhere. Also on top of all that me and Anna have decided to start a Vlog because we want this wonderful crazy unpredictable time in our life documented if for any other reason so we have it! I'll post a link tomorrow to the video on the off chance anyone other than Anna is reading this thing. I'm off to study now I hope you all have a fantastic week!
