highlights of this video include

*me creepily swinging with sunglasses

*wild turkeys roaming around

*my mothers weird skull salt and pepper shakers, which I hope to someday inherit

enjoy...and thanks Hannah for documenting lyfee

Top 8 Celebrities I have been fascinated with at some point

and have researched extensively... here it goes

1. Edna St Vincent Millay.....One of my favorite celebrities of all time. I started researching her heavily because St Vincent recommended Savage Beauty, her biography...not the best written book of all time but the most moving connecting story I have ever read. I am pretty positive she is the best poet ever. I am still trying to find audio clips of her reading poetry on the radio.

2. Dolly Parton....I am Dolly crazy. I have watched countless interviews with her, listening to her cute adorable laugh. Not to mention, listening to countless songs. This woman doesn't seem to have a mean bone in her body. My favorite part about her is that she started writing her own music with instruments she made herself and she doesn't actually know any guitar chords but makes them up herself. Her laugh her laugh her laugh soooo adorable



3. Frida Kahlo, what can I say. Her paintings I mean ya. Like Edna St Vincent Millay, her proclivity towards both men and women at the time period fascinates me. I am pretty sure that both Edna St Vincent Millay and Frida had more lovers than I will ever have in my life..both men and women oh and I aspire (aspired) As far as a sexual revolution of sorts these two celebrities actually influenced my young 20's mind very very much.

4. Edie Sedgwick...I started researching her after netflix accidently sent me "Cio Manhattan" most likely the worst/confusing movie ever..I loved it. Also Factory Girl so good. I am pretty sure I have seen every picture of her known to man as well as watched every single clip of her.

Photobucket

5. Marianne Faithfull... Oh man, Marianne Faithfull one of the most babely people ever ever. There is no story behind why I am into her other than the fact that I have a huge affinity for folk music..who doesnt? If you ever want to fall in love via the internet watch "as tears go by" sung by Marianne Faithfull on youtube..better yet here..



I would just about die to be able to find the sexy tapes of her and Mick Jaggar, still looking...

Photobucket

6. Charles Manson..this was during my cult researching phase I went through in San Francisco. Specifically I am fascinated by the Children of God. Anyway mass murders and suicides?? cult culture woah. He is one scary dood.

Photobucket

7. June Carter/Johnny Cash...I normally am not into celeb couples but I cant decide who is more interesting/talented/amazing June Carter or Johnny Cash. Cash's crash and burn lifestyle like most celebrities is of course interesting but even more so its the way he wrote his songs/ sung them. Man do I have a soft spot for country/folk

Photobucket

8. Kim Weston...Most likely one of the most underrated Soul Singers in history...her voice is so flippppingly good and amazing. She was found the way I find all Soul artists I am obsessed with...research...soulnights dancing dancing dancing...I wish I could have Irma Thomas, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Sam Cooke, the Marvellettes alll of them sing to me every night.



I wish Maggie Chascarillo counted but alas she is a comic book character.

There are others oh there are but I thought I would share these for now.....

nowww to get back to reserching objectum sexuals...you know that lady that married the Eiffell Tower?

it took me a while to do this post because I started researching them all again!

Found Letter

Found at the Knockout in San Francisco my favorite bar of all time.

Sometimes a bar is a perfect place to get those thoughts down on paper...I mean hey, we are all trying to work stuff out huh?

found letter

If I were her I would just hand this to him and walk away.

I am sort of missing my bangs

almost every day of forehead exposure I find my hand creeping around for the scissors, its only the thought of growing them out again that keeps me from the inevitable.


1 year strong...more creative ways to keep my forehead covered are needed.

neurotic? me? noo.....

woke up

Lyfffe

I just finished the last season of Skins. I need a breath of fresh air for sure. I find myself listening to dance remixes...oh man Skins, you have turned me british.

I havn't taken any recent photos of what I look like these days. Somehow its gotten into my head that I look older. Maybe I am growing into a non child looking person now! hoora!

To all my friends that are going through hard times cancer, deaths, violence, general sadness I love you, people can really be amazing, no matter where I am or what I am doing I am never ever alone. I am ready for smiles and happiness now.

Also! I am excited for fall for once. Usually, I cringe at trying to dress myself in many layers of mismatched confusion. Somewhere out of the blue I am grabbing at things that match and look ok together. I want to wear these mustard colored pants everyday and am obsessed with the idea of adorning myself in chunky knits. I am well aware at 5'2 I may get lost inside large knits but maybe thats ok with me. See you all when the leaves turn!

We did it!!!!

For those of you that don't know me personally, My name is Wray, a lot of you know me from livejournal. I live in Brooklyn New York, I moved here from San Francisco, CA about 2 and some years ago. I have been busting my ass for sometime now bouncing back and forth from one job to the next in the busy New York City world. After working for stressed out "Fashion Women" My partner and I decided to create our own Company called Ambit which we run purely on good vibes and hard work. I am my own boss and I like it. Long gone are the days of professionally fixing other peoples problems now I have got my own and they are fun problems.

Thank you to all of those who have helped us along the way, we couldn't have done it without you! Also thank you for putting up with me being an absent friend, girlfriend, coworker, daughter, grandaughter. This is going to be an amazing journey from here on out

Gretchen

As usual lots of pictures exist in my apartment Babeisland where Kate and I reside. I tend to not leave it sometimes. We recently had a meeting of the livejournal friends. Gretchen came to New York City and she was more than I had ever imagined. For those of you who don't know I am a livejournal nerd, I started off blogging when that was the only blog to exist on the internet. Yearsss later I actually hang out with these people in person which is kinda nutty but great.

Gretchen is http://zoetica.livejournal.com/ and Kate is http://en-anatomie.livejournal.com/profile

En-Anatomie is how I first came to know kate, one of her many livejournal profiles as she is known for also have one of many flickers as well. You might say that I have now met all of the people I have wanted to meet, staring at their pictures, head cocked and desiring a meeting at 19 years old.

this is what happened when we met....

bed dancing

boo boo

babe
Do I hang out with babes 24/7 or what?

I guess thats why they call this place babeisland.

Needless to say, I have a trip to Ohio in my future!

Over the years I have had many a friend with pretty hair. I am a bit obsessed with hair and like to look at it and touch it. If you have long hair and I know you chances are I have studied your hair.

Here are my dear friends my photos, myself and general hair...the wilder the better.
