photobooth friday :: i want to be like lou reed


photobooth friday :: i want to be like lou reed Originally uploaded by dressform.

i say i want to be a singer like lou reed...i like lou reed she said... sticking her tongue in my ear....

name that tune???

that's all i can think of when i look at this picture. i look way to serious for my own good - like i could kick some a**.... heh heh. get your photobooth friday fill at hula seventy

you know it's a long day when you don't eat lunch until 3pm [i did have a banana and an apple] but not a real lunch until 3 [no lectures from the peanut gallery, k?]. i did, though, go to the richmond art center to scope out my wall for my installation. all next week i'll be there trying to figure this sucker out.

here we go!
i'm excited... this wall will be in the center of the room - so that when you walk in you'll actually see just a skinny side of it first.... and i'll have the installation wrap around both sides of the wall... and maybe on the floor??? here we go!

and now i must spend some time saying a hearty heartfelt thanks to gwen [who by the way got the last song quiz right]. i love her sensibility, i love her collections , i love that she's a scientist AND artist, i love that she has monday give-a-ways, i love that she loves piles [and writes in them]. i'm excited because she will be in the bay area this fall and i will get to meet her in person!

anyway - she sent me the most amazing box full of prizes, just because::

cramcream
cram cream cuteness galore

such details
all these incredible details.... collage note.... tags..... even the fragile sign on the outside of the box.... wow. sigh.

kitchen goodies
like candy.

and because we have been talking piles :: [which by the way feel free to post next Wed... i'll do another round too!]
pile o' cups
i think they will live like this in my dining room... only to be used by very special folks that come for tea of coffee *smile*

and i leave you with a polaroid....
old and new

near UC Berkeley. these two were pretty much right across the street form each other - i found that fitting.....

happy weekend friends - see you monday w/ drawings!

wow! I clicked the photo of all the cute tags & it took me to your trades set on Flickr, you have done SO many! How fun ;)
I don't believe I have ever posted on your blog before, which is funny because I've read it many times & you pop up in so many other bloggers posts, I see you all the time!
So hello, I am Ash!

That song is going to be stuck in my head for the rest of the day so I might as well pull out that CD and dance to it!

Cool photo! I like photobooth photos...they always make me laugh!
and then I always think of Amelie (the movie) but I have no access to any photobooth around here.*sigh!*

I love those cups and saucers. where did she get them? wonderful!

"Pile it on Friday", Huh? I like it. count me in!

love this photobooth btw. just too much drama happening here!

Nessie Noodle said...

I guess that should have read "pile it on Wednesdays" instead of Fridays.. getting my days confused :)
