So apparently Gabe Nevins, the kid who played the main character in Gus Van Sant's 2007 film Paranoid Park has been in a downward spiral ever since. He got into drugs went to jail and even became homeless and his friend Nick Haynes who he got to know during a photoshoot from his short lived celebrity hay days has been documenting his life with dark amusing and gross photos. Including an e-mail from Harmony korine that's very sad to read like if Harmony Korine is telling you to clean up your act that's bad news. But I read somewhere he's getting better! So right on man do ya thang

i love how this movie is so dark and gray but reminds me so much of spring. Kind of like how ambient and minimal it is but its still a gangster crime drama, pen-ek's good like that.
The iguazu falls shot by wong kar wai from happy together. Beautiful, hazy, wet, blue, voluminous, and slow set to Caetano Veloso's Cucurrucucu Paloma is always an image in the back of my head when i think of spring.
shitty y tu mama tambien stills. i was planning on doing a screen shot frenzy when i finally remembered to ask my brother in law for the netflix password and of course it stopped streaming. i just really wanted to at least cap that one hotel room because it's so cute and y tu mama is the ultimate summer movie you can taste that fresh coconut water and feel the sea.

pinks and blues and a lot of light. This spring/summer i'm all about this homey comfortable sort of timid tropicalness. Things like eating melons at the dinner table, walking around gardens, and feeling lethargic from too much sun, going to the beach at night, and eating ramen noodles in front of my computer in an oversized tee sweating to the sound of wind chimes and spanish pop music.

spring is here and this is how i feel
(still from Symptoms)
but really this spring i'm feeling the warm weather, the sound of waves lapping on lake michigan still too cold to go swimming but perfect for strolling along, going to the farmer's market, grilling and finally getting some plants in my courtyard.
i actually got my first one just a cute little sago palm. I plan to buy 10 or so and put them all out on the steps in front of my sliding glass door in my room.
For spring listening i've been jamming on Cyne, which i can't believe took me this long to listen to. I heard the song feather that cise starr did with najubes and i loved that song but it never occurred to me to look up what else he's in but at least i know them now. check em out if you cool.
Cise (samples bjork ahhhh)
Fall through Atlantis
It's like the smoothness sounds inspired by 90's jazz rap but you know it's been made in this decade because those beats just sound modern as hell for some reason can't quite put my finger on it

silent by damir doma
Very into natural textures like wood, fur, fur that looks like wood, basket weave, and crinkles and creases that looks like sand in gradients of beige.
lasse bech martinussen's photos makes me so happy. They just makes me want to go some place different, get into shit, idle around, and sink in the details.
tyler's new album is cool

in love with Haruka Nakai's perfectly whimsical polar bears. It's interesting to see them change within different mediums as well as the other anthropomorphic characters she does. Very beautiful i suggest you check em out.
hunter magazine spring 2013 (this whole spread is pretty bombin)
i really want a sort of casual suit (yes i'm obsessed with menswear). I could totally see myself wearing that kris van assche suit with a white tee and converse. And that funky ass bernnhard willhelm suit is totally crazy, if i were ever going to wear something full of patterns and colors this would be the outfit. How cool would it be to just wear that to chill with your friends?
Stills from the man who left his will on film. I haven't seen this movie but now i want to. The director, Nagisa Oshima, also directed diary of a shinjuku theif which i've been pining to see for a while. It's amazing how modern these images look.
A movie i did see was suddenly (which is on netflix!!) by diego lerman and damn this was the best movie i've seen in a long time. It's about two lesbians who force another girl to go with them on an impromptu trip to a town by the sea. It had wonderful movement; it was my favorite kind of minimal pace but with just enough hi-jinks to keep it entertaining at all times and there was so many different relationships with all the characters but they all felt very sincere and unforced.
i found the most perfect frame for my egon schiele postcard i stole from art in high school (i miss stealing from art class) you can't tell in this picture but the frame is a really ugly 70's shade of green.
i've been listening to this song from michiko to hatchin's soundtrack constantly. it's like a sort of bossa nova slow jam i wish i could find more songs like it.
