One of the biggest perks of San Francisco is the public transportation. Never again do I have to worry about too many drinks and a long way home. I just hop on the L Owl and get off at my flat. But for some reason I always decide to go home around 12:30, and the Owl usually doesn't start making its rounds until after 2. So I sit on a curb at Church and Market, talk with homeless people and try to kill time/not fall asleep. I keep a nice stash of paint pens in my bag, and every now and then I drunkenly draw a quick little picture on the rail, or on the sidewalk. Usually hands, feet and weather rub it away within a couple of weeks, but this little guy has been hanging out for over a month now. Its permanence makes me feel bad for contributing to the wave of shitty paint pen graffiti, but it makes me happy that it is there (though it is kind of sad). Part of me really hopes that it is gone so I can draw something happier next time.

When I took this picture of Chaz on a big stage all by his lonesome during his sound check, I joked about captioning this photo: "Toro Y Moi playing to a sold out crowd." Then the show started, Bottom of the Hill sold out, and he was actually playing to a sold out crowd.
Despite how briefly they were here, having Chaz, Heather and Sam in town made for a really amazing time. I hope they come back soon.

In my high school Art I class, the teacher's daughter would come in and help teach during her fall/spring breaks from film school. This was always the easy escape from endless still life drawing sessions. The only problem with this assignment was that the teacher's daughter was a total square. The rules of the film project were: no horror movies, nothing funny, and no acting in your own movie. We thought those rules sucked, so we made a movie about hot dogs taking over the world. But so we didn't fail, we made it "artsy" and told her it was a about consumerism and society's obsession with products. We got an A+.

There was a pretty bad thunderstorm yesterday, so driving to work took 45 minutes. I also had a headache. When I walked into the office, I saw 2 donuts on a plate on the table. I cut one into 1/4ths and ate a piece of it. It turned out it was a bacon donut, and a really long hair was stuck to it. I gagged.
