the ark

I attract sick and/or wounded animals. 

So far in the fiveish years I have lived in this apartment this is a list of all the beasts that I have rescued or nursed back to health.

  • A lost Pomeranian named Kona that I house and then found his people
  • A pigeon that had heat stroke or some kind of other ailment. The pigeon lived on my porch in a bin I left open. He received water (enhanced with bird nutrient drops) and food, then flew away a week later.
  • A wounded toad. (Toads are really fast healers if they are healthy)
  • A Cardinal with a damaged wing and substantial blood loss.
  • Three lab mix puppies. Which I found happy homes for and check up on them from time to time.
  • And lastly, I just found a stray.
I have been trying to find his people. I have posted information all over the internet. He is chipped but it seems his people don't want him or never updated their chip information. So, I may keep this one. We will see. I am calling him Lars.

wedding photography

I don't like weddings. There is no logical reason for this. But, I have never liked them. Something about them have always bothered me. This is not to say that I am against marriage. I am just a weirdo.

That being said (and to prove how insane I am), I love taking pictures of weddings. So, on Friday that is exactly what I did. Now, I'm not going to post all the pictures. Because, who wants to see photos of people they don't know right? 

But here are some of the good ones.

hayao miyazaki

I posted this 8-bit version of Spirited Away on Facebook. A good friend of mine, who is also a Hayao Miyazaki fan said,

"This just makes me realize that Spirited Away made no sense. There isn't a narrative for the main character besides moving from one disjointed scene to the next. The supporting characters have no real motivation or arc when viewed in this abbreviated manner."

Which is a completely valid statement.

Interestingly enough, I just watched a documentary called, The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness. The documentary really shows the reality of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli itself. But the most important thing I learned as how Miyazaki creates. How he plots or how he doesn't plot. 

What a pantser!
