I demand a $13.50 performance

1. Saturday night Chelsa, Tammy, and I headed to see Eric’s show The Wake at Chemically Imbalanced. Unfortunately Eric was sickly so he said he couldn’t promise me a $13.50 performance. And when they announced that one of the cast was being replaced with an understudy Chelsa and I both frantically looked to our programs to make sure he was still performing. I didn’t pay to see strangers act! The show was very good. It was odd though because the theater is tiny and the actors are right there in front of you. I did squeeze out one tear when Eric’s character hit a kid. Sad.

I made Eric act like a third grader and get his picture taken outside of the theater.

2. Today was 24 night at Joelina’s. Actually Sid came up with a new name that I like better: Aloe. From now on they will be the Aloes. Anyways. I made stew that turned into chicken mush but I think it was good. The stew had wine in it the bread had beer.

3. After four washings your jeans should stop turning your hands blue…right?

4. Last week I woke up to legs full of scratches. Now I woke up to legs full of bruises. Obviously I am sleepwalking into some sort of fight club…

Walter: I really hope we have ice cream in this house
Walter: fuck yes! peppermint!
Me: haha
Me: i just had a cupcake
Me: i am not going to lose 20 pounds
Walter: fabulous
Walter: I gained 1.6 pounds last week I was so proud
Me: i’ll go throw up now
Walter: lol
Me: way to think my bulimia is funny

6. How can you make turducken any better? How do you make EVERYTHING better…

7. I am trying to convince my sister that she doesn’t need to hire a “professional” photographer and that I could just do the pics of her baby when he is born. I sent her some really rough test shots. This was a five-second setup with no lighting set up at all.

    when the baby is not made of plastic it won’t be as creepy.

    To me it’s the detail of the photography that captures the inhumanity of the subject. The pictures are so good, the composition is correct…yet that is clearly not a baby, it’s a naked plastic doll. Truly creepily beautiful.
    Nice work.

    Thank you Chris.
    I was really just going for a “Look! I can take pictures on a black background!” example to show to my sister.
    The doll belongs to my mom. I think it mostly looks creepy becasue the lighting is bad. And that it has breasts for some reason.

    Some people refer to the “Uncanny Valley” which says why this picture is so creepy:
    Those baby pictures…fall right into the trench! That doesn’t mean they’re bad pictures, in fact, their composition and focus and style of a human baby is spot on enough to provoke this reaction.
    Fascinating stuff.

    The baby doll pictures are awesome. Creepy as hell (…I think it the one eye open-one eye closed) but really freakin’ cool.
