Rules of Life

The 6 Rules of Life

  1. If you like something because you think other people are going to like it, it’s a sure bet that no one will.
  2. Most doors in the world are closed, so if you find one that you want to get into, you damn well better have an interesting knock.
  3. Everything that you think is important isn’t. Everything that you think is unimportant is.
  4. Don’t shit where you eat.
  5. “Lean into it”; The outcome doesn’t matter. What matters is that you were there for it, whatever ‘it’ is – good or bad.
  6. Don’t sleep with people who have more problems than you do.

These are pretty ‘spot on’.

The Art of Fiction

I came across this Marukami interview during my internet travels. I thought I’d share. For those of you who are fans, I hope you enjoy it…


Ever wonder about the funny relationships of Aperture, Shutter speed and the size of your lens? There may never be any solution other than taking matters into your own hands and just practice taking pictures. There have always been two main aspects to photography; framing technique and exposure formulas. One can be learned, the other should be mastered. Thankfully, this art form is subjective but this tool may help you out in understanding that the camera is less complicated than it seems.

and if this doesn’t work, well there’s always Instagram, right..?

Heading DWNTWN

A smashing version of one of my favorite songs. Really makes me miss my 20s…

The Mythical Koto

There is something very spiritual and profound about the process of sword making. Being able to possess anyone of these weapons is an undeniable pleasure and being able to wield them properly is almost a lost art. I have a deep reverence when it comes to the Katana, and even though I love my humble blade, I can only dream of being worthy of becoming one with the types of weapons that Watanabe San creates… Thanks for sharing Etsy.

Kush Groove

Currently enjoying this tune immensely…


Spirit Fingers

Art can be found in the most unusual places and the web allows access to many hidden talents. You can agree to disagree on the amount of said artistry but that is a different argument altogether. When I painted my hands as a child and even when I paint my niece’s face, I never imagined you could take just a bit further… Guido Daniele has all but perfected the painted torso and his hand painting is simply amazing. I am definitely borrowing some inspiration the next time Teagan wants her favorite animal painted on her hand or arm.
