from secret-motel :
How appropriate that I see a comment from you while I'm listening to Hey What. You're the one who sent me marching to Duluth. And I love you for it (and other things).
from babyhead :
A pleasant surprise to hear from you! I do miss you photographs
from usb-port :
Was good to see your name turn red on my list even if I couldn’t read the post. Hope you are doing well.
from secret-motel :
I hope you are happy and well. I've missed you!
from secret-motel :
Jenny!
from secret-motel :
Oh, your notes are back on! I've been wanting to send you a shout and wave and tell you that I miss you.
from rhetoric :
*wave*
from secret-motel :
I have a lot of very detailed dreams about people I know and used to know. Even the good ones are, somehow, not so good--they inspire a sigh that never completely escapes me for the rest of the day.
from rhetoric :
mm.. cheerios..
from rhetoric :
so jealous!! re: red snapper with spicy yuzu
from secret-motel :
Do NOT pour whisky on your ear!
from rhetoric :
those moments, quirks, things are [i think] what i come to like/miss most about people. i'm not sure i if i realize it at the time though.
from rhetoric :
you and me both.
from boyecho :
hiyo jeeeennny
from notunique :
told her you said hi today, she said hi back.
from notunique :
I see julia at least one a week, she's got a cold right now.
from rhetoric :
miss the chats.
from babyhead :
Just wondering...can I come back in?
from secret-motel :
Ha, tipsy Jenny! I adore you tipsy or sober.
from rhetoric :
i need this burned to memory.
from notunique :
Once my next album is ready, I would love to commission a t-shirt design from you, based off those drawings. So excellent.
from secret-motel :
I love your alien pods. Reminds me that the Conservatory of Flowers in GG Park has a special exhibit of carnivorous plants I should see before it ends.
from secret-motel :
I can certainly see how that would be considered sparse. That sort of thing appeals to me probably because it's easy for me to forget that it's made by humans. I like to pretend I am receiving broadcasts from a divine invasion of extra-terrestrials re-purposing our ghost town technology of fax machines, dial-up modems, and faulty cd players. Probably also relates to the kind of stuff I'm reading.
from secret-motel :
The Pop Yeh Yeh album is put out by Sublime Frequencies (www.sublimefrequencies.com) I love that label. I have so much of that stuff. I'm really enjoying that Chad VanGaalen 45 and would like to check out some full-length albums.
from rhetoric :
'unsubscribe' email = best.
from secret-motel :
I'm glad you get to relax now. What new music did you get?
from secret-motel :
Wishing you an easy week.
from secret-motel :
A mighty congrats on the bonus! But that 95% is bullshit. You are consistently 100% spectacular shining goodness in my little world of fog, dilapidated lighthouses, and the symphony of echoes.
from secret-motel :
I keep thinking about that entry regarding the Taipei night markets. It sounds so amazing to me. All that great food! I can only imagine the sights and sounds from such a place. I wish I was a ghost so I could just follow you around on your adventures, Jenny. They say you're supposed to follow the light. That's why I would follow YOU.
from secret-motel :
Why am I not surprised that Japan has a Bunny Island? Of COURSE they do! And, if you go there, I suspect you will be named an Honorary Princess and given a proper parade and dinner.
from secret-motel :
I was sick from Christmas Eve till about New Year's. Get lots of rest and take good care of your lovely self.
from secret-motel :
Playing music from your phone in your car? I think Crutchfield sells some sort of docking station that does that. Anyway, a great big Happy New Year to you, beautiful lady!
from notunique :
yeah. the one thing i can say is that song hasn't changed a bit since he was playing it to twenty kids in a nightclub. i think that's really cool that he hasn't had to compromise...yet.
from notunique :
I toured with GBW a few years back. What a trip to hear them while grocery shopping now. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v259/heynowlookat/243841_2018444428562_4238816_o.jpg
from notunique :
I'm so sorry. My heart's breaking.
from boyecho :
I'm sorry, jenny.
from secret-motel :
I have the same job in the same office, but I've been transitioned to a third-party vendor. So, it's a little weird right now. Lots of hoops and hurdles. Seriously, being your record-listening-to-buddy would be the best thing ever.
from secret-motel :
I would love to be your personal record-turner-over.
from rhetoric :
i think maybe it was the lamb more than me.
from secret-motel :
I know it's not my place to say this, Jenny, but I kind of wish a giant, winged predator would swoop down, grab your uncle, and carry him into outer space. I only say that because I can hear the stress he is creating for you and your parents.
from secret-motel :
What boooooooks did you get?
from rhetoric :
seemed like a funky but good combo. i'm glad it was/is.
from secret-motel :
Ah, glad your mom got good news! I hope you all get to celebrate together very soon.
from rhetoric :
happy happy.
from secret-motel :
They always make me think of you. I'm trying to remember everything they played: Monkey, Canada, Paper Cup, So Blue, Last Snowstorm of the Year, When I Go Deaf, Sunflower, maybe one or two I didn't know, and of course Dinosaur Act. I wish I was immaterial and could quietly, invisibly follow Alan and Mimi back to Duluth and try to absorb whatever it is that inspires them.
from secret-motel :
I'm wishing the absolute best for your mom. You being there with her really makes a difference, you know? I'm glad your boss is being supportive. Co-workers (some of them, at least) can be really amazing when you're dealing with scary, stressful times.
from secret-motel :
Great big protective hearts to your mom.
from rhetoric :
:( best wishes. reallyreally.
from rhetoric :
calgon, take me away!
from secret-motel :
A great big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!
from rhetoric :
do not taunt happy fun ball.
from secret-motel :
Congratulations on the new job! I am so happy for you, Jenny!
from rhetoric :
i've still never been.
from rhetoric :
michigan is missing from my state list.
from secret-motel :
You mean to see R.? I was all set to book a flight, and then she and I had a little disagreement. That was over a month ago, and we haven't spoken since. She is angry and disappointed. And I am sick and heartbroken.
from rhetoric :
(i) miss random chats.
from rhetoric :
srsly, more information than i will share here, though i almost did..
from raven72d :
whatever became of you?
from secret-motel :
Don't stay away for long. I'll miss you. So much.
from rhetoric :
do not like..
from secret-motel :
I suck, Jenny. I had a bad day, yesterday. When I got home, I just wanted to have a few drinks and go to bed early and not be around other humans. But I'm glad you went and enjoyed it! I'm so glad! I've been playing the new album like crazy. "Just Make It Stop" has been playing in my head all day.
from secret-motel :
Is Thalia Zedek opening at your show? I wasn't really familiar with her and just looked up some of her work. Wow! If I go, I'm going early to check her out.
from secret-motel :
Are you going to see Low?! They're playing here, Wednesday. I'm terrible about attending shows, these days. I always find an excuse to stay away. But I think I'll make an extra effort to get out and see them. I just got "The Invisible Way" last week. It's such a crushing beauty.
from boombasticat :
Braces, yes! Such self-awareness. The constant fiddling with them, the constant checking. And when they came off? Instant adulthood, it seemed like. Cheers to you.
from secret-motel :
Are you fond of southern writers? Flannery O'Connor is pretty great. All of her short stories and her novel, "Wise Blood". John Kennedy Toole's "A Confederacy of Dunces" is one of my favorite books ever. Nathanael West's "Miss Lonelyhearts" is short and perfect. Or if you want to go Russian, I highly recommend "The Master and Margarita" if you haven't already read that. And I've always been fond of Nikolai Gogol's "The Overcoat". (((hugs Jenny)))
from notunique :
thank you!
from rhetoric :
i got two of them, but they are not sushi related. unless you count the silvery skin of saba. then, maybe..
from secret-motel :
Ha! I first read that as, "Drowning cats with crowns." Ah yes, Jenny is drowning cats again. Happy Friday.
from rhetoric :
me too.
from rhetoric :
super jealous of your trip.
from secret-motel :
Ah, good. I was once again playing "Things We Lost in the Fire" in the mailroom this morning. If I could be granted any wish right now it would be that Low would show up in your office and play for you, Jenny.
from secret-motel :
Did you hear negative things about Low? I don't know if I want to know. I bought some more of their early stuff recently. It's so good. I don't want to ruin it.
from secret-motel :
What are you selling and why don't you provide a link?
from secret-motel :
You are beautiful, Jenny. Never hide.
from rhetoric :
unnecessarily, says me. a bit of, wow, if I may.
from secret-motel :
Hello my dear southerly friend. I actually log into DL often to read your diary and a few others. But I haven't been comfortable with writing anything for a while. Yeah, I should get over that soon.
from secret-motel :
Glad to hear she's recovering :=}
from secret-motel :
I hope everything goes okay for your sister.
from boyecho :
Willis is crazy cakes.
from secret-motel :
Hardly Art can go suck it! They should all get a big mouthful of herpes and SUFFER! That's just the way I feel about anyone who rips off Jenny.
from secret-motel :
*pours you a tumbler of whisky*
from secret-motel :
You got it, Jenny. And I pour generously, too. I'm not like these goddamn restaurants that serve you a half-glass. Huh-uh, baby. I fill it up to the rim. I wouldn't begin a roadtrip with only a half-tank of gas, and I wouldn't begin a flight to the moon with only a half-glass of wine.
from boyecho :
giant robots
from secret-motel :
Yes, always choose sushi.
from secret-motel :
You bundle up, young lady. Take care of Jenny. She's my favorite Jenny in the world.
from secret-motel :
A lot of turbulance to close the year. I'm thinking of you and rooting for you, Jenny. I wish I could do more.
from secret-motel :
That's a rough Christmas. I'm sorry, Jenny.
from secret-motel :
A great big Merry Christmas to you, Jenny. And great big hugs from the north.
from secret-motel :
The lighthouse I seek offers no answers. And that's fine because, there, the questions no longer matter.
from secret-motel :
I had a curious relationship with that book. I found the characters to be sometimes unlikeable and often irritating. There's not really a plot. But Wolfe has such a love for language and makes small moments seem like such immense things. He was far from home when he wrote that book and seemed so close and haunted by nostalgia, longing for home and the past and always fleeing from it.
from secret-motel :
Yes, do come north. Rugged north coast of shipwrecks, fog, and peach storms.
from secret-motel :
I wasn't trying to be kind. I was being honest.
from notunique :
What were you listening to back then?
from secret-motel :
That's the loveliest "plain" I've ever seen. I adore that face!
from notunique :
Thank you. Things are settling down, we decided to stay where we are.
from secret-motel :
An impressive series of storms has been plowing through the bay area for the last five days or so. Mostly grey grey grey here, too. But sometimes there's a break in the storms and the clouds open up in the late afternoon. And the filtered sunlight makes everything look pink or peach-colored, the streets and sidewalks wet, the scent of rain-soaked trees in the air. I'm enjoying it.
from bedwarmhands :
It's been a while, a looooong while, bean. Hope you are wonderful out there. xxo
from notunique :
I had tamer versions in the same vein, but it's so hard to gauge how accurately to portray yourself in these situations.
from rhetoric :
dig the specs.
from secret-motel :
Hi Jenny. Not sure if you got the email I sent last week. I know it didn't go through to the longitudinal address. Not sure if the other one worked or if you still check it. --hrld--
from boombasticat :
They're all California and sun and fun and heartbreak. Can't vouch for the video (though it's pretty cool): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRC0P7y-ZFA
from asmo-deus :
Spyderco knives are sturdy, I just wish they sold them a few inches longer. A friend of mine had a Tenacious a while back. And I know what you mean about travelling around with a knife. I've had to replace two knives that were confiscated and never returned.
from asmo-deus :
nice. i'm looking to upgrade, any recommendations?
from asmo-deus :
thanks. you carry?
from boombasticat :
Do you know the band Best Coast?
from rhetoric :
hey.
from boombasticat :
No, not yet. I could send it your way? How's the new arm?
from notunique :
I just started one up again. I'd post more by I feel like people will get tired of spiderman in various poses.
from boombasticat :
A gem among stones. Very nice.
from notunique :
beautiful work
from boombasticat :
Thank you. Have you been able to get aquatic this summer?
from rhetoric :
hooray or sorry. whichever works.
from notunique :
there's gotta be.
from notunique :
Truth.
from boombasticat :
In re: peonies: http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/index.php?date=2004/04/11
from boombasticat :
So what's your tattoo?
from notunique :
nah, it's florida. behind me is a gross pier-style shopping center. i'm standing in a crappy dive-bar drinking cheap wine, surrounded by old people.
from notunique :
I don't have them, but I feel like they're there regardless.
from secret-motel :
Pretty ladies with pretty eyes.
from notunique :
I think I just stay up too late and have too much time to think. Hope things ease up for you, too.
from notunique :
it will be done.
from notunique :
tonight it was really, really, really good. julia julia is here visiting!
from boombasticat :
I guess "jam," in this context, meant, "mess yourself up." Which is appropriate, because this is an office, with copiers, and so there are, indeed, paper jams.
from secret-motel :
Thank you, Jenny. Your words are very much appreciated.
from boombasticat :
Thank you for the bucking-up. I can't wait to see more of your Joshua Tree photos.
from secret-motel :
Thank you, sweet Jenny. By the way, I love the pics of you in the desert. They make me smile.
from notunique :
Not the Julia you know, different one.
from boombasticat :
That's very nice.
from rhetoric :
you will forgive me, i hope, when i reduce my more wordy comment to: wow. and: stripes.
from notunique :
especially when he's screaming an throwing cake everywhere.
from boyecho :
I'm positive that'd ensure my acceptance.
from permeation :
Aww thanks dollface. (Are you trying to say they weren't before ;) Kidding! And YAY. I LOVE J Bomb pressies!! :)xx
from notunique :
It's getting better. Come crash on our sofa any time.
from boombasticat :
Shiiiit. Colombia? Nice work, muchacha.
from secret-motel :
RE: 17:39: You have a beautiful body. I wish it betrayed even more of you.
from boyecho :
yep! it deserves the happiest most ecstatic face ever.
from boyecho :
lemon goes in those too
from boombasticat :
I fear that I require your password, etc. sent again. And thanks, for sure, for your notes, aquatic one.
from notunique :
I just had my first bikeride in NYC...it was much more perilous than the one you describe.
from permeation :
Hello beautiful girl. Long time no talk! I'm on a new computer & don't have your UN & PW (I thought I remembered it but apparently I don't.) Could you FB or email it to me pretty please? Miss you xxx
from rhetoric :
now it is my turn to say that i hope you are doing okay.
from rhetoric :
so am i. hence the rambling of late.
from rhetoric :
that was never my plan, just that detachment has its benefits, I guess.
from rhetoric :
the background and design is really amazing. very much in awe.
from boombasticat :
Whoa! That's a knockout image, the earlobe and the blood.
from secret-motel :
Wow, those clouds look pretty amazing, J..
from secret-motel :
Things are okay. You've inspired me to try to write in dl more often.
from notunique :
ah, yeah. but I feel like one, you know? getting offended usually isn't my jam.
from secret-motel :
Hey! You're not leaving dl, are you???
from boyecho :
that's what i do when company comes around.
from rhetoric :
very cool old people story.
from secret-motel :
Congratulations on the permanent job status!
from notunique :
i hope you're okay.
from secret-motel :
Or, even worse, NOT searching for that which wants to be found. Not reaching out for those things that are clearly within our grasp. I am guilty of this.
from secret-motel :
Anything worth having is worth searching for. I guess the harm comes in searching for something that doesn't want to be found.
from secret-motel :
Yeah, I think I've had enough family time for a while. My niece is 22. It was strange and oddly charming watching her order a beer with dinner the other night. The funny thing is that they carded ME but not her.
from notunique :
I was actually a freshman in college. But I was still little in the 'juvenile issues with women' sense. I wasn't a child prodigy, but I did make some good Spider-Man artwork when I was twelve.
from secret-motel :
Thank you, J.. Talking with her on the phone doesn't seem like such a bad thing. The idea of possibly meeting up with her, though, kind of makes me panic and sets my brain on a shuffle of uncomfortable scenarios. My imagination is a big, shaggy dog always straining against its leash.
from notunique :
congrats! enjoy the first weeks. it keeps getting better and better even as they grow.
from boombasticat :
It was a joyous thing. I'm a sucker for the big emotions that come at the end of sports. It's the only time I cry. Cheers to you during this high time of the sunny, aquatic life.
from notunique :
this season is the greatest.
from aperfectmap :
thank you, ma'am. i appreciate the good will. i don't know if this is something that'll last, but i'm glad to be putting out decent work again. spent some time working on music in the last few weeks as well. i will send you a track or two if you're interested. just let me know.
from notunique :
he's into graphic design and advertising, they offered him a contractor's position for a year. his last project in college was a shark week ad campaign. they caught wind of it, and offered him a job immediately.
from rhetoric :
you must be nearly all water by now.. (re: 12 jun)
from secret-motel :
You do stand out. In my landscape. You radiate a warm light I am always reaching for. Always reaching for. I am so glad that you are here, J.
from boombasticat :
That's what you get, for trying to look nice. The skinks! Who scoff!
from secret-motel :
Can I go with you to the moon? I'll pay for gas, if you drive.
from notunique :
god, i wish. thinking of asking them to move in for the summer and be the man-nanny. manny.
from secret-motel :
I hope you are feeling better today. Huggggssss.
from notunique :
I've actually seen that same reaction from a few people. Touring around now, currently in NYC for a few days. Summer's almost here, you must be pumped.
from secret-motel :
Hahaha! That entry about the nail salon reminded me of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsWrY77o77o
from secret-motel :
"Franny and Zooey" is one of my favorites. R and I used to talk about it over the phone all the time. "House of Leaves" is pretty great. I haven't read "Watership Down" yet but was talking about it the other day with someone who brought up Donnie Darko. You should read all those books you got, J. And more.
from notunique :
house of leaves fucking owned me for a couple of years.
from boombasticat :
Thanks. I tried out a different voice. Maybe not so serious this time around. Summer's coming. I suppose that, for you, things are about to take a turn for the aquatic.
from boombasticat :
Photography vs. Photoshop. Yes. I sympathize. You take great photos.
from boombasticat :
Lungs about to burst, undertow, heat on high, water dripping to towel. Wonderful.
from secret-motel :
Nice fish. They are like flowers with gills and eyes.
from secret-motel :
You are my favorite mermaid.
from notunique :
I'm sorry. What a weird feeling.
from rhetoric :
soft (focus)
from notunique :
Thanks! It's near impossible to describe the pure joy at meeting him. I felt more genuinely happy then I've felt in forever.
from secret-motel :
You'll always be something--more than something--to me.
from secret-motel :
Ha, love those pictures of you with the deer!
from secret-motel :
You're right. It does look a little blurry. But I don't know if I would have noticed it, if you hadn't brought it to my attention. Heehee. Has it always been like that?
from notunique :
lenses...that's where they get us.
from notunique :
errr...but if you're wondering about the tron pictures...that would be a real dirty cell phone camera.
from notunique :
I'm using a Sony A300. It's okay. The only reason I went with sony is because they bought out minolta a few years back. All of my dad's old 35mm lenses are compatible with it.
from boyecho :
i'm so jealous you got to see fushimi inari when it was cold and wet. (it was blazing hot when i was there.)
from boombasticat :
Yes, yes. Welcome back.
from notunique :
glad you're back. :) hope that everything was/is awesome.
from secret-motel :
Welcome back, Jenny! I've missed you.
from secret-motel :
Sounds like the job is going great. I am so happy for you! I will miss you when you leave for your trip--but I'm also very excited for you, you, you.
from notunique :
locked up differently?
from notunique :
you can fix the roller ball on the mighty mouse! use windex. I have to do it to mine twice a month.
from permeation :
lovely lovely eyes.
from secret-motel :
Pink and yellow? Why?
from foreveragain :
congratulations on new jobby job bean!!! so excited for you. [love]
from secret-motel :
Oh, jeez! I have a story about macarons i'll have to share with you soon when my head is less clouded.
from secret-motel :
You got the job??? CONGRATULATIONS!
from secret-motel :
May I attend your slumber party?
from notunique :
I will eat every goddamn fish on earth. ALL OF THEM. :)
from secret-motel :
And I'm curious. What two albums were you listening to?
from secret-motel :
I can tell you really want the job. I'm keeping my fingers and eyes crossed for you. For you, you, you.
from permeation :
No ideas - just bored of the current one. Use your creative genius? Ps, I love that you're loving Baths. I've been hard up on Cerulean for about two months now. So gorgeous. xx
from secret-motel :
Good luck at the interview! Finding lost money is a good sign.
from permeation :
All the best wishes today - fingers & toes crossed. Ps; So fancy making my DL as pretty as Harold's & yours? x
from boyecho :
point is keep going. stay afloat. smile (every so) often.
from secret-motel :
Something good WILL happen. Believe it.
from cymbals :
can i keep reading yr diary please? email to [email protected]
from boombasticat :
Great photos. The double-exposure one (I'm thinking "mash-up" in my head) is really nice.
from secret-motel :
I want to play in the rain with you!
from notunique :
But seriously, it got warm again in Mass the past few days, I want to go swimming.
from notunique :
My mom eating potato chips has that effect on people. Same with my brother's pecs.
from cherophobia :
Sometimes it is not only the only way to be, but the best way to be. In time it passes.
from boombasticat :
So what was the name of the song?
from secret-motel :
If your head takes off for the Moon, I want to be onboard!
from notunique :
That is one of the most beautiful shades of blue I have ever seen.
from corposant :
Wrote a tiny poem for your new picture: "A sideways glimpse of heaven, where an angel's beauty should be inimical, as obdurate as glaciers." Title: "Blue". Line-breaks every two words (you can see that form on my diary). Sometimes it comes so simply.
from corposant :
And now you're locked, darn. Well, I did manage to view a number of your images & I need to tell you what a stunning talent you have. The photograph titled mother/daughter was amazing to me.
from corposant :
Hello! I've been incommunicado for a few weeks & I'm just answering your note about asemic writing. Even though I've done this kind of writing since I was a child, the term "asemic writing" is actually new to me. I had no idea I was taking part in a well-established post-literate tradition.
from permeation :
You and me both sister. You and me both. But you're beautiful & talented & fantastic - so at least that's something... ps, when are you going to come and visit England. You'd brighten this ol' rainy place up in a heartbeat. xx
from permeation :
Thank you my lovely. Do you know, I actually really like it too - not sure why. Hope you're ok these days... xx
from boombasticat :
Thank you for your note. I've never surfed but years ago I read an interview Eddie Vedder gave where he talked about how surfing makes him feel and sometimes I remember that interview and I think: I'd like to experience that. In any event, here's to flying in all its forms.
from secret-motel :
Why are you sick???
from notunique :
my thoughts exactly.
from permeation :
hello love - i did indeed (besides the band photo of Interpol.) x
from notunique :
It's not so much exhausting as it is embarrassing when I see it in myself.
from secret-motel :
Please don't faint while swimming.
from foreveragain :
i wish you could call me in times like these....
from foreveragain :
you. are. beautiful.
from permeation :
No no no I've BOOKED the cottage. I meant to say, I've booked my trip. Flights. Rental car. B&B. Etc. Tuscany. Seina. Florence. HERE I COME! x
from permeation :
Tuscany indeed!! Going at the end of September. It's a place I've wanted to go to for as long as I can remember... This is the little place that's stolen my heart so far (look at the suites!) ; http://www.follonico.com/index.html
from notunique :
Captivating. I saw the exact same thing on the sidewalk today. Strange coincidences.
from secret-motel :
There's a hole in my space suit.
from corposant :
Thanks for being here.
from notunique :
You're not going to believe what happened...
from yespleasedo :
Making "sense" is overrated. You're great.
from permeation :
Ha, indeed - but there's no Lush on the mix. It just happens to be 'lush'. xx
from notunique :
Thank you.
from secret-motel :
Ha! I love the thought of you "drawing unnecessary attention." You are such a heck raiser.
from secret-motel :
Even your bruises are beautiful.
from permeation :
D'you know what? She makes the dream and the nightmares seem almost beautiful.
from notunique :
Are you locked up for good? I think I used to follow you and I really liked your pics.
from permeation :
I love that b/w of you, floating the water looks like a dream. xx
from secret-motel :
Sleep deep and well, lovely mermaid.
from yespleasedo :
I stare at your pictures until life gets blurry. ::hug::
from boyecho :
i did and now it's grey out. 10 degrees cooler. hope it's on its way.
from moonsocket :
i know, right?!! i can make that happen. careful what you say! xox
from secret-motel :
Yes, you should swim every day. Our summers, I suspect, our polar opposites. This morning, I was drinking hot coffee and walking through grey drizzle in my raincoat. I like grey drizzly summers, but I also like the thought of you warm and bright and gracing the Pacific with your skin and hair.
from aperfectmap :
washington heads to phoenix, az in about two weeks.
from permeation :
hello beautiful. no key needed. i'm clearing it all out, one by one, so it'll be fresh. soon. i've missed you here.
from secret-motel :
rest, light: I always imagined you lighting up a room.
from boyecho :
slower. and with more.... intensity.
from secret-motel :
Jenny, I am so glad you are here.
from starzero :
i miss your photos.
from moonsocket :
imissyou.
from moonsocket :
♥'s and hugs, bean. ♥'s and hugs for you.
from secret-motel :
I love photos of cloud country
from secret-motel :
Logging in and finding that you've posted a new entry has made my day!
from boyecho :
i hope you are having great adventures
from secret-motel :
You are missed by me.
from moonsocket :
...landscapes in our sleep. perfect. fully completely perfect. hope you are keeping well, j. xoxxo.
from secret-motel :
I love everything you loved.
from secret-motel :
The ocean rushes in. To kiss you. To kiss you.
from secret-motel :
Float toward the lighthouse! I'm here, waiting for you.
from boyecho :
but go further and further still and you'll find ghosts there
from nakedpride :
I'm always in the mood to get lost.
from permeation :
Missing you here J. I'm so out of contact with the world lately - the only internet I have is on my iPhone because I can't be bothered to go to an internet cafe. They all smell like kebabs. Yuck. I'll be in Texas in two weeks - after meeting Psammy in Toronto. I wish you were gonna be there. Harold too. It'd be a glorious meeting of beautiful brains xxx
from moonsocket :
that most certainly is NOT a narwhal fail, bean.
from moonsocket :
you freaking rule my LIFE!!! do you even know this??!!! well you DO! north? keep going.....a little further.....meet me in vancouver? xox
from secret-motel :
You should definitely make gifts for your friends and family. Anything crafted by your hands is infinitely more valuable than something purchased in a mall.
from moonsocket :
I really like the word "occidentalis".
from secret-motel :
Wow, "Take Flight" is a real beauty. I can just see you flying around up there in that swirl of steely blue tones. Sometimes the sky looks like underwater. And the birds look like schools of fish, fins replaced with feathery water wings.
from secret-motel :
Yes, you really should start painting again. I wish I could sit quietly in a corner and watch you work.
from nakedpride :
I adore your new dark, wooden background. I think you're the only diary that has changed its skin more than I've changed my hair. ;) Nothing wrong with change. I know you seek it.
from secret-motel :
I'm so glad you are now free from all the indignities of jury duty. Did you get an interview for the new job? I am certain bright new doors will open for you soon--if not there then somewhere else.
from moonsocket :
oh bean.......XXOXOX
from moonsocket :
yes please. right. there. xox
from secret-motel :
Yeah. Quiet City would make a fine sountrack for your diary.
from secret-motel :
I love your bubbles.
from permeation :
I love your diary so much, Jen. You're too beautiful in so many ways. xxx
from boyecho :
done visiting his friend, i see. told you he'd be back!
from moonsocket :
babybun.
from secret-motel :
I love it when my old pets visit me in dreams! Bun must've missed you and decided to drop in for a nuzzle.
from secret-motel :
And if anyone were to incorporate the concept of battery-operated flesh into a film, it WOULD be Cronenberg.
from secret-motel :
Your note has got the final line from the film Videodrome repeating in my head ("Long live the new flesh"). But Cronenberg has always been lurking about my heart, so I thank you!
from secret-motel :
RE: "Hand on Thigh". Wow, I initially misread "I need new batteries for my flash" as "I need new batteries for my FLESH."!!!
from moonsocket :
i really miss you right now.
from boyecho :
how's that song go?
from secret-motel :
Being the caretaker in a lighthouse is actually one of my dream jobs.
from moonsocket :
re: occlusion......you and me both, bean. you and me both. xox
from secret-motel :
"night quiet" makes me think of photographs taken on the Moon. When I see that sort of play between light and shadow, I wonder which will eventually triumph: the light or the shadow?
from permeation :
Hi stranger. Could you email me the in and pw? I've only got the Internet via my phone so can't remember them. I miss you greatly. x
from moonsocket :
:)
from secret-motel :
It's not easy being human. Especially at three in the morning.
from permeation :
everyone cares about your photos, because they're always so full of life. im jealous you have one of those cameras - the results are always, always flawless. very meticulous though, huh?
from permeation :
starting fresh indeed. if my life starts here, then i want it to be good, and new. (i miss you J) x
from moonsocket :
oh i do hope you are ok out there, j.
from moonsocket :
you KNOW i just got up and put beach baby on and waited patiently..........and then i hugged you. xox.
from boyecho :
i'm so happy you actually drew that. adorable.
from moonsocket :
don't forget about me over here, bean. lots of love for you. xoxxo.
from secret-motel :
*semaphoring with flashlights* Psst, Jenny! Over here!
from moonsocket :
i [heart] yr drawings and want some for my empty beige walls.
from moonsocket :
i miss you, bean.
from boyecho :
Ill-i-noi-noiiiii
from secret-motel :
Thank you, Jenny. You are, by the way, welcome on this side of the fence anytime. Anytime. I like it when the sun goes down and the factory lights come on. They make the shadows all that much prettier. And that's what light is for, right? Not to save us from shadow--but to appreciate shadow in...a new light? Hmmmm...
from aperfectmap :
with regard to i don't get that close to that glass until i'm on the floor: lost in translation has long been a favorite of mine, but very few people seem to enjoy it as much as i did. secondly, that picture is stunning. makes me want to devote a bit more time to actually taking pictures again. thanks for confirmation and inspiration both.
from permeation :
God J..it sounds like you & I had similar days. I just wish I could get in a car & drive. I hope you're feeling OK now. You're not an asshole at all though. I hope you know that. xxx
from secret-motel :
It's very nice on the moon this time of year. Not too many tourists. And lots of open badminton courts. Let's grab our rackets, power up the rockets, and go there now.
from boyecho :
fruitbat.
from secret-motel :
The worst thing about those work-related dreams and nightmares is that, though you feel like you were really there, you don't get paid for your time.
from boyecho :
so many tiny stories to tell.... geisha party central down in gion. cats cats and more of them. rowdy australians and me getting WRECKED and wandering around kyoto at 2am...
from moonsocket :
i am having an insane urge, an incredible longing to be near you, rightnow. i've been working away from home, crashing on couches and floors, in cities and villages with little or no internet service for what seems like forever, but is really only a few weeks. and i have fallen out of touch with my favourite ones. i miss you, and i owe you some words. i just wanted you to know i know. [goodness me you are beautiful].....♥.
from boyecho :
cats keep popping up in random places here [now japan]... i think it's because of what you said.
from boyecho :
i met a funny cat. it had lost its tail. i also met a dog [johnny], and a bird [maki maki] that live with a buddhist monk. hope you had a good birthday!
from permeation :
Outside of chocolate, red velvet cake is my favorite. I hope you had a splendid day my dear. x
from secret-motel :
Happy Birthday Jenny!
from permeation :
Thank you Jenny. I wish you were here. x
from secret-motel :
And a bigger (((HUG))) for you.
from bilgedasto :
i will certainly try.
from permeation :
Finally! An email has been sent in your wonderful direction my sweet & beautiful friend. x
from permeation :
ah, but the mystery is the beauty of it all. (I know I still need to email you - I've just been stupidly, stupidly busy...) I love you x
from permeation :
Oh yes, I do! I do, I do, I do. Today, I promise. xx Ps, Your recent photo? The one of the beach? I absolutely adore. I love the way the little beach/life guard things look. When I lived in CA when I was younger, I remember being completely obsessed with them - the way they photographed and looked in films. xx
from permeation :
Ps, the word 'boner' is pretty much one of the funniest words ever.
from permeation :
! (I am emailing you today. There is a lot to tell you, my beautiful friend. ) xxx
from permeation :
Oh! Definitely my favorite design in a long time. It's lovely. Do mine! Do mine! :) xx
from moonsocket :
i like what you've done with the place. xoxxo.
from permeation :
Heat like that would make me want to barf too. I also think sweating is super sexy. It makes me feel all hot & gross & dirty - but in a good way. Mm, and other sweating people...mmmmmm. Ahem, sorry. So yes, yoga. x
from permeation :
Ah, but you know it's so, so true. Seriously, I'm coming to California next Summer. I'm going to see you, and Harold, and we'll make Psammy come too. I need my favorite circle of creative friends together, in one place, at one time - to laugh, drink, shoot, make music, whatever! xxx
from moonsocket :
....and i think i got the very best of the new descriptive pairings. xoxxo.
from boyecho :
love love love the cicada. thank you!
from moonsocket :
bahahahaha!!! vocal vomit! yes!
from permeation :
..curious as to your new descriptions, btw. Interesting combinations - and yes, you my dear, are definitely seaweed & stone. but you know, the tasty, delicate kind of seaweed and the rarest of stones -the most beautiful. (i don't know what i'm talking about now, btw.) xx
from moonsocket :
ok, what i want to know is how the hell those divers didn't get impaled by one of those diving gulls!
from secret-motel :
You never suck and are always adored.
from moonsocket :
three cheers for drunk bean!!!
from permeation :
Yes! Drunk posts! I can only hope you were typing that with one eye closed, because you know that's the only way to roll when you're drunk-typing. I hope your pretty head feels fine in the morning...xxx
from secret-motel :
I want to play badminton against you and Tiffany on the moon, with a live improvised soundtrack performed by Pauline Oliveros and Miya Masaoka. You will destroy me, and I will enjoy every moment of it.
from boyecho :
funny thing, cos i was sitting in the closest thing i have to an 'office', around dusk.. no one in the building... when i thought i should go for a drive. so i drove to the bat house on campus. parked up about fifty yards and walked back... i waited. this chorus of chittering swelled up out of nowhere and the bats took off.
from permeation :
What a fantastic picture J! Digital? Long exposure? The stars!! xx
from boyecho :
batslovebatslovebats. sounds like you had a splendid time.
from permeation :
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey. I've MISSED you! I haven't missed England though. The sky's the same colour of grey that it was when I left. Boo. Pictures soon. xxx
from boyecho :
Oh soju is fun! Sounds like you had a great night.
from boyecho :
yes. stupid internet.
from boyecho :
yes, i saw freaky cat boy. creeeepy.
from boyecho :
i want to be there.
from l-alle :
[HA! just got yr note- we are on the same trembling page!]
from l-alle :
the photos are so lovely. [effffffffff that earthquake was really strong! thought of you immediately- hope you are okay!]
from permeation :
I love the new design. Gorgeous!
from moonsocket :
♥♥♥♥♥
from bilgedasto :
i think about you often. you should call me sometime.
from permeation :
Weird!! Just last night I was also craving a root beer float. x
from boyecho :
i've always been convinced it's entirely possible.
from aperfectmap :
you've been locked up forever and i've been missing forever. you still have my email? if so, code me.
from boyecho :
actually left a lot of detail out... there was a whole other part but it was entirely unrelated... and as for sharing, sharing is good. i have a photo to show you. not quite as great as cat and woman though.
from boyecho :
welcome back! i'm glad you had such a fantastic time.
from permeation :
Dearest Jenny, I hope you're having a wonderful time in China. Seeing new and wonderful things, feeling love all around you, and being happy. I miss your thoughts, so come back soon. xxx
from permeation :
Have a lovely time, J!! We'll miss you like mad. xxx
from boyecho :
have a good trip!
from boyecho :
strange cat. [and funny woman with owl.] i'm worried, too, about missing mexican food while over there. but i've been assured there's a decent 'western' mexican restaurant that's not too hard to find. maybe you'll find one too.
from boyecho :
deal!
from boyecho :
such a tiny chair...
from secret-motel :
Yeah, Dirty Three! They have always been reliable for great late-night soundtracks. "Sad & Dangerous" is one of my favorites.
from moonsocket :
{also, when do you leave for vacation?}
from moonsocket :
of course i did, and i am, and thank you! i've been missing you, bean. and yr lovely words. it's been so long. i've been in a bad place of late, but i will write soon. xox.
from permeation :
I told you I always wear it! I wish it was warm enough here for bikinis. I'd be happy with being able to have bare legs! Can you give that summer heat a nudge this way please? Englands, like, so behind.
from bilgedasto :
text me the code please...
from permeation :
So in my birthday package, you included a little fizzy bath ball thingie. I was saving it for when I really needed something luxurious, and last night was it. Awfully hungover, I turned the lights down low, listened to Miles Davis and soaked for a good hour. MMmmmm. I smelled good enough to eat. Like ginger and heaven. xxx
from lostelephant :
I'm right about there with you, too.
from permeation :
I love you too, J. A billion percent. x
from boyecho :
the best part was... that i was not content with the computer stereo in the sound shop... that i actually went to the soundboard, turned on the entire p.a., and cranked this song. pushing subwoofers. pushing the speakers up in the balcony... making the entire building shake. with no one there to tell me not to...
from nakedpride :
My friend just bought the same mickey mouse shirt and wore it to Disneyland on my birthday this past Sunday. It was sort of trippy seeing it on your blog.
from permeation :
Dang. So that was pretty hot J. x
from boyecho :
magic like phosphorescence?
from moonsocket :
no need to thank me, j. you know i'm never very far at all. ♥.
from permeation :
I bet your hair smells like lilacs and lemon. x
from boyecho :
oh, bunny. i am very sad to read about that. take care.
from lostelephant :
There's a new mix on Passport Radio, dear. Hope it cheers you up.
from moonsocket :
so sorry to hear about bun, bean. so sorry. i think yr mom was right though, he was most definitely the happiest bunny ever. sending you the biggest of hugs. xox
from nakedpride :
so i need to send you things in order to gain access to your journal... ;)
from moonsocket :
of course! i should have known it came from you. sill, silly boy indeed! i knew it you would love sin fang. yes i did! oh happy day!! are you going to chinaland? please don't say yr taking a detour to t's. no, not yet, bean.....no, not yet! ♥
from boyecho :
re: other side of planet. you too?
from boyecho :
moBile. it's late. it's dark...
from boyecho :
i would love a twigmovile. but only if i could make you something in return... i'd have to think about what, exactly...
from moonsocket :
i found you something good! i've hidden the link in one of our many means of communications. happy hunting! xox.
from secret-motel :
I want to take any health problems and crush them in my fist, sprinkle fine black powder into cracks of earth--leave you with a clear blue unobstructed horizon of health and happiness.
from boyecho :
i've been craving blackberry jam for weeks. [and holy crap, electrical wires]. oh. and. i like the twig-mobile.
from permeation :
so its a friday night, im completely pissed on red wine, and i've been listening to shoegazey music all night from the early to mid 80s..then mad men came on! for the first time! im already in love! x
from moonsocket :
scary danger is the best kind of danger. and i really like you, too. xox
from lostelephant :
That finale was amazing, and I think I fell in love with Peggy.
from boyecho :
back scratch!
from permeation :
Aw yeah, not much of a 'surprise surprise' but yeah. It's gonna be soooo pretty when it's finished. Now its just lots of black squigglys - but I know youve got a mad imagination :) x
from lostelephant :
I'm here and listening.
from boyecho :
yesss. that's why i think it's so good to embrace it.
from starzero :
curious about the lockdown. not sure i qualify to ask for entrance. buddy list keeps reminding me what i can't read. certain it's not me.
from permeation :
. . . you ok these days J?
from permeation :
I know I already commented on Flickr about that picture - but god Jenny, it's (you!) are so beautiful. x
from lostelephant :
Still locked out. Would you like me to pout? P.S. How do you feel about downloading music? (Because there's an album I'd like to send you).
from nakedpride :
if you haven't made your journal completely private, i'd love to have access to your newly protected diary. ;)
from moonsocket :
j, i miss you. i checked my inbox. nothing yet. may i? please. thankyou. xox
from permeation :
Oh stop it Jenny. YOU are. xx
from l-alle :
its fun this way, yes?! i wish i had done it sooner, too! xoxo
from boyecho :
hmph. same sort of echo, but at gmail dot com. [if you feel like sharing]
from secret-motel :
Hi, it's me: the tricuspid valve. May I have a skeleton key? Please? Pretty please? [email protected]
from lostelephant :
You know.
from permeation :
what the frick?! i better have a password waiting in my inbox Ms J. (love you!) x
from l-alle :
the creepy perv has given up on me, i think. TOO BAD SO SAD! ;]
from permeation :
i've missed you too, J. xx
from starzero :
i'm reminded of the devastation of being left, when i thought my world was ended. i haven't hurt like that in a long time. i'm afraid i won't ever again.
from moonsocket :
just know i'm always right there, beside you, through it all, bean. we are never, ever alone. xox
from secret-motel :
I always hope that relating such experiences will alleviate my longing. You know, exercise it. But my longing just gets...longer? Like shadows when the sun is going down.
from permeation :
Hey J ... I've been offline since Tuesday. Internets down and I'm now sat in a cafe. Just logging on to see if you've gotten the package yet??? Hope youre well & I'll be in touch after the internet is fixed tomorrow. Much love my dear xxx
from boyecho :
i've not seen them in yeaaaaars. perhaps i can sneak a camera along.. [and agreed on the indiana lack of accent...moving south opened my eyes a bit.]
from starzero :
being from indiana means i have no accent, or this flat accent that sounds like people on tv. i was told as a kid i sounded a little chicago, which is probably more pronounced now that i live in chicago, but the only time people questions my accent was in new york, where they all talk like assholes.
from lostelephant :
'THAT'S HOW MUCH FUCK FISH.'
from permeation :
hello love - i'm OK! im mailing your package off tomorrow. its been all boxed up and ready to go since sunday but i never make it to the post office in time after work. im so untrustworthy that im making sure its sent registered. ps, im so trendy and listening to kanye west. be worried. x
from l-alle :
I HAVE NOTHING THAT WILL HELP [NOT EVEN CAKE] BUT IM THINKING ABOUT YOU AND I THINK YR LOVELY. XOXO L.
from permeation :
second opinion: is it just me, or is my site completely buggered? i dont know if it maybe its just my PC??
from boyecho :
also, grapefruits with honey have been my breakfast/lunch time obsession lately...
from boyecho :
oh, but there's not much to miss. [thank you for the note though. very much] and i wish i could hear radio sounds from a seashell.
from secret-motel :
You are right about the sea sounds from radio! The only thing that might be better would be radio sounds from a seashell.
from starzero :
when i hear "heighth" i want to stab someone in the eye. then cut out the speaker's tongue. probably not a healthy response.
from permeation :
ps, winter in california sounds like a dream. here, it's been snowing all day. the streets, rooftops, and steps are all covered in white. x
from permeation :
I have so much to tell you. Expect a novel in your inbox soon. Also -yesterday, your gift FINALLY arrived. ONE month after I ordered the bloody thing. SO - also expect a package in your mailbox soon. So much love it hurts, xx
from l-alle :
whatever that air is, i want a hit too!
from moonsocket :
i want to go misbehave with you.
from lostelephant :
I hope you are well too, dear. We'll figure something out.
from secret-motel :
I welcome your hugs with great enthusiasm. And I send you bigger hugs with even greater enthusiasm.
from moonsocket :
best. emails. ever. a million thankses. xox.
from starzero :
i dreamt of textures as a child. textures and this odd zoom in and out from the surface of something. eventually i grew out of it, only to have it return while in college. i wonder if it'll ever come return. it was probably the only dream that consistently made me uncomfortable.
from permeation :
...this entry made me so, so sad (mostly minus). of course you wont always wake up alone. xxxx
from permeation :
hello my dear...they havent arrived yet, but im sure they will any day now!! xx
from moonsocket :
it's 4a. i can't sleep. i'm writing to you. for morning reads over coffee, i hope. xox.
from permeation :

from l-alle :
i want to take a train and meet you at a museum in la and wander around and look at things. [dont be gilled.]
from permeation :
'mapped' i want a print of that. it's beautiful. x
from l-alle :
i went for a long walk in cute [not comfortable] shoes.
from aperfectmap :
seattle is what it is. we've had a surprisingly sunny weekend, which was nice considering the bulk of winter is spent in a dense, grey dampness. otherwise, i'm researching for my thesis, trying to stay positive and not give in to my few vices, and trying to regain my balance. how are you?
from secret-motel :
Wow, I like the music in that clip you posted. Very lovely.
from l-alle :

from l-alle :
is it really W E I R D that knowing that makes me feel less alone?
from studionique :
oh yes, I'm so glad I found you I have been pheenin a blog like yours since galaxyrabbit left. I'm in LA county. U and alle are such refreshments to this stale dland place.
from studionique :
no one else spoke of the earthquake today but I definitely felt it.
from l-alle :
the geology class that i took last semester is not helping my anxiety. oui r sew fuxord.

from permeation :
ps, a long email is coming your way but wanted to say that I GOT YOUR PACKAGE TODAY! ON MY BIRTHDAY! how awesome was that...xxxxx
from permeation :
nothing as of yet -- but don't worry. i'm sure it'll get here this week! I CAN'T WAIT!! speaking of parcels that are late - still haven't gotten the stuff for you, and now I'M worried. it was only coming from the Uk!! :/ x
from permeation :
Oooh, don't be silly J! You don't have to get me anything at all. I am SO looking forward to your package, though! I'm still waiting for two of your main presents to arrive in the post. They've both been shipped out so it shouldn't be too much longer! YAY! xx
from raven72d :
I love School of Seven Bells. Have a happy and adventurous and delightful Year Nine.
from permeation :
someday indeed...xxxx Happy New Year to you, my dear. Here's to continuing friendships & greatness. x
from moonsocket :
YOU, my dear, are insanely, stunningly beautiful. true. effing. story. xox
from permeation :
i love school of seven bells. i always wanted to include them in one of my mixes - but they never seemed to fit. some day. ... and also, the mighty boosh is fantastic. (just butting in on that other convo). x
from l-alle :
the mighty boosh is BRILLIANT. the legend of old gregg is MY FAVE next to the strange tale of the crack fox...2009 for sure, pls.
from permeation :
i ordered the last three parts (the main parts, too!) of your presents yesterday. once they arrive - pop! out in the post to you. shouldnt take too long, hopefully. you might actually be my favorite person to shop for - i just see a billion things i know you would love & appreciate. xx
from l-alle :
I WANT TO SQUEEZE YOU GIDDY GIRLY SLUMBER PARTY STYLE!
from boyecho :
what makes me want to know someone is simple. the fact that they exist. what makes me stop wanting to know is the hard part...
from l-alle :
omg i want one! do you display yrs? i would have mine mounted like those dentition development models and stick it on a bookshelf! i wonder what my dentist would charge me... [relatedlysortof- i really like getting to know people. my problem, usually, is that it takes forever for me to tell if they are bitchy/mean/aggressive/etc]
from l-alle :
i want to see a picture of that! [these are from my moms collection; my brother, sister and i all contributed.]
from l-alle :
ha! they are baby teef!
from permeation :
..no doubt my gifts for you will arrive on your doorstep long after Christmas, but for what it's worth - their will be gifts coming your way soon. I went shopping today, for pretty-pretty things for your pretty-pretty self. Decisions, decisions... xx
from l-alle :
evidence that you are in an Honest place. i think there are more of us liars/cheaters out there than people would like to admit. <-- but maybe that just means IM in a bad place.

There's plenty of room here beside me on this broken pew. I'll open a beer for you. And we can sit through the fall of light.

the title 'grand scheme' always reminds me of a song from one of my favorite bands... 'love and its grand scheme' by a little lakeland florida band called Denison Marrs.
from l-alle :
sometimes you feel things for people you shouldnt. and sometimes you dont feel things for people that you should. and sometimes you feel so much and so little all at once you cant tell which feelings are directed in which ways. and i think thats okay.
from boyecho :
at least you still feel... isn't that something?
from permeation :
i worry about you, my dear, when i read entries like your latest one.... xxx
from l-alle :
and the next time theres a good show, we should go!
from l-alle :
not weak, just human. [hugs]

from secret-motel :
Women have actually complimented me on the firmness of my handshake. But I never, until now, considered that firmness to any other part of my being. These days, I try to avoid shaking hands with anyone, because everyone's coughing and sneezing, and I don't want any of it on/in me. The whole handshake dynamic thing is a mystery to me. You want to give a firm, spirited introduction to your essence, but you don't want to be a jerk, either, and crush the other person's hand. I fear I'll never understand. And your entry just introduced another facet that will haunt me to the very end of my handshaking days.

bean bean!!! it's ever so strange being back here. the initial thrill of getting here has worn off, and the reality of it all is setting in and it makes me rather uncomfortable. i've tried writing to you a few times, but can't get it out. i am going to attempt again right away here. goodness, yr so far away now.....
from lostelephant :
Your mother must have dipped you in sugar, 'cos girl, you sweet.
from moonsocket :
we can be alone together forever. but, then, are we really alone, bean? riddle me that. [heart]
from lostelephant :
That was such a perfect ending to the season.

from l-alle :
the rain i am LOVING- but the thunder... [i whimper and jump _every time_]
from moonsocket :
i want to hug you. soon. hope you are fan-freaking-tastic out there, bean. oh boy do i ever. [i miss you and our correspondences.]
from lostelephant :
You are truly a dear. Someone should hug you soon.
from boyecho :
i was, but now i'm home.
from lostelephant :
So are we a go-go?
from l-alle :
gah! yr endlessly adorable!
from nakedpride :
Darling, do you reside in LA? If so we should meet for coffee or tea.
from moonsocket :
ahhhh!!!! jennyyyyyyyyy! i don't know i don't know i do not know. too much pressure! oh man.....
from l-alle :
i wish there was a way for me to transmit my feelings directly into you, so that you could synthesize them into pictures&words...
from moonsocket :
"word"! i'm saying it! yes please yes please!!! oh boy oh boy oh boy!!! xox
from lostelephant :
France = awesome!
from moonsocket :
you blow my mind. you really, really do. xxoox
from l-alle :
gurb song?! honestly?! migala?! [sigh] get out of my dreams and into my car, you.
from moonsocket :
i just shed a tear..... the epicnesss of the new layout just burned through the truth of yr last entry. i'm shaking......
from lostelephant :
P.S. I am the drunkk machine as well.
from lostelephant :
Mad men theme? Betty Draper BB Gun?
from lostelephant :
I'm leaving all decisions up to you.
from crestone :
your new design is so cute! i love the little bunny!
from permeation :
so, all this Mad Men talk has gotten me seriously interested. I just watched a dozen clips on Youtube now. That's pretty sad, huh? God, I miss American shows. English shows, for the most part, are absolutely terrible. x
from lostelephant :
I was wondering what you would think about having a blogspot page for yourself, Tiff and I where we can post our mixes and just have them in one place? I will leave the decision up to you ladies, and if so, please feel free to choose a name, template, design, et al. My first mix has been posted to: http://rustinfearssatan.blogspot.com/ Just let me know. A note would be fine or an e-mail at [email protected] Hope all is well.
from moonsocket :
♥.
from boyecho :
i am fine. just incredibly impatient..
from bilgedasto :
i cannot wait for the re: union.
from lostelephant :
I feel like smoking a whole pack of cigarettes and drinking a fifth of Johnny Walker after every episode. Also, a little traumatized. And the second season is even better.
from secret-motel :
I, too, live in quake country. Every time we have a mild shaker, I think to myself, 'THIS IS IT! THIS IS IT!'. I have supplied myself with glow sticks, a case of bottled water, and one of those crank radios in case of catastrophe. I fear the landlord's house caving in on my little cave. I fear fires. I fear looters. And I fear the liquor store being closed when I go for extra supplies. Take comfort in that the big devastating ones are rare. It's not like living in other parts of the country that suffer tornados and hurricanes (cones 'n' canes) every year. At least we don't have quake seasons.
from permeation :
and she loves you. ps. in my thoughts, i'm keeping you super-duper safe from those evil earthquake(s). xxx
from l-alle :
:\ an earthquake? really? [cries]
from lostelephant :
You do not know how long I have waited to talk to/read about Mad Men with someone. (by the way, I love Joan. She is like watching the birth of bitch)
from lostelephant :
We need to high five sometime.
from permeation :
last night, i said to someone 'are you giving me the stinkeye?!' and i instantly thought of you & the recent entry of yours about mad men. it made me laugh and smile to myself. why can't we be closer?! so often i walk down the streets here in brighton & i think about how much you'd like it if you were to ever visit. xx
from permeation :
so, what IS mad men? because i've never seen it. england is SO behind on this sort of thing. x
from moonsocket :
don gives betty the stinkeye?!!?!????!!!! gawd i love you!!!! almost peed my pants! yr so awesome j! xoxox.
from lostelephant :
The Mad Men entry? We are friends forever.
from permeation :
my dearest jenny - there is something coming for you in the post. expect it soon! xxx
from moonsocket :
seems miss l-alle is taking up a little too much real estate over here! time to stake my claim back! you have email, bean. not one of the better ones i'm afraid, but long overdue, so i smothered it with love and hit 'send'. i miss you tonight. more than usual, and it makes me wonder how yr doing.....[♥]
from l-alle :
oh come on. like you could _be_ any cuter.
from l-alle :
expect an email proposition very soon. [FINALLY, AMERICA]
from l-alle :
watch as i leave too many notes! :\ aherm...how do you feel about medieval times?
from l-alle :
!i covet alongside you!
from l-alle :
i am thinking that we have definitely got to be close enough to meet for tea and cupcakes.
from l-alle :
long hair. so jealous.
from moonsocket :
i wish there were words big enough to articulate the feelings i'm experiencing being just this close to you. i'm not at all sure i could handle being in yr kalifornia, that close, in all honesty..... xox....
from l-alle :
ok. as i started reading this, the sky opened up and it started raining. coincidence? i think magic.
from idividedbyi :
yr last three entries make me long to be there with you. it all sounds so utterly perfect i can barely stand being so far away..... xox.
from l-alle :
ohkay thats it- you and i are having the same night [except im flying solo]. hangouts required _immediately_.
from l-alle :
was thinking about you today and wondering if you got any rain in yr neck of ca. hope all is well. [happy halloween!]
from l-alle :
[there is nothing worse. than not remembering. than not being able to remember.]
from bilgedasto :
i'm glad you reach me at all. i miss you too.
from l-alle :
figs. and goat cheese. and pb and apples. ive never had caramel squares jammed into marshmallow pods. ...i think someday we should have snack night.
from l-alle :
[so nerdy] i did okay for a first-timer. [probably will not do it again, tho. twelve hours is tooooo maaaaany hourrrrrrs!]
from idividedbyi :
deal! xox. [i'm writing to you right now. right. now.]
from idividedbyi :
i wanna come over.
from l-alle :
i envy yr fearlessness.
from secret-motel :
Does a large cup of hot black coffee count as dessert?
from l-alle :
[also, was already on verge- but this picture/prose combo knocked me right on over. welcome to teartowne. im yr host, madame sobs-a-lot.]
from l-alle :
so beeeeeg!
from permeation :
xxx
from secret-motel :
Just follow the line of yellow CAUTION tape. Cross over when no one is looking.
from secret-motel :
Admit: ONE. I've reserved the cleanest seat in the house for you. But you should still bring a raincoat.
from moonsocket :
[heart]
from moonsocket :
that sounds glorious! where do i sign up?
from l-alle :
ohhhhhh the text of 'strategy'...it is doing things.
from boyecho :
.... bunny. holy god.
from l-alle :
oh.my.god. BUNNY! [aaaaaaand i swiftly turn into this guy:: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9QoZ1wLkPI ]
from secret-motel :
You give me way too much credit. If my brain was a theater, it would be one of those little shoebox-sized theaters frequented by lone middle-aged men in raincoats. The sound is never properly synched with the images on the screen. And your shoes would stick to the floor. And you might occasionally feel something brush against your pantleg.
from idividedbyi :
JENNYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [♥]
from boyecho :
i love love 'your rocky spine'
from l-alle :
[i wonder if they know what a compliment theyve been paid.]
from l-alle :
! yr last two entries seem like they could be excerpts from episodes of 'roswell'! [and i mean that to be taken as the best thing ever.] [me=nerd]
from permeation :
i found the perfect christmas present for you yesterday. yes, yes i did. x
from l-alle :
this is my last semester at this cc. then...i have no idea where im going, actually! on to a proper 4-year somewhere around here- but i dont know which one will have me.
from l-alle :
it went hilariously well, and i had faaaaaar more fun than a person should have in a lab on a friday night!
from permeation :
i can't believe i'm the aorta. x
from secret-motel :
Thank you for the dedication! I'm listening to You Are Free as I type this. It's been a while since I listened to this album, but I really like it. My favorite songs from that album are "Babydoll" and "Names". And I really like the lines "when you go by windows you see shadows / when you're shopping for me". And thank you for the well-wishes. My detox officially begins in a couple hours.
from l-alle :
im glad, too. :]
from boyecho :
are you north? i've not even gone yet, but i know one day i'll make it back. i've so many things there i want to see...
from l-alle :
guilty as charged [grew up, left & came back]! are you here too?
from l-alle :
i know im late, but that picture of dca is dreamy and perfect.
from moonsocket :
oh jenny, i don't know what i would do without you in my life right now. i shudder to think what may have come from things if you hadn't of been there, like you were. you get it. and for that i am eternally grateful. [i ♥ you.]
from boyecho :
a long time ago, a friend offered a tour of a city where he lives and makes music. and a visit to see pandas. who can deny themselves pandas?
from boyecho :
and oh. my. god. puppyface. i am in fifteen different kinds of love..
from boyecho :
SD/LB
from raven72d :
Andre Breton? What are you reading?
from permeation :
looooooooove that picture. puppies forever. x
from permeation :
hello my dear - most are digital - but a few from recently are film. xxx
from boyecho :
thank you so. and as always... it wasn't nearly long enough...
from secret-motel :
No blood and guts in my chest. Just stairways. You are more than welcome to come build echoes anytime you want. Anytime you want.
from moonsocket :
hahaha what?!!?!?? you funny! ♥.
from lostelephant :
Wow. Just, wow.
from rigbyeleanor :
your words are simply beautiful. i'm in awe of the poignancy of your writing. i hope you don't mind i've added you as a favorite. i look forward to reading more of you.
from moonsocket :
YOU!!!!! it's 3:30 in the morning. i just got back home. it feels so foreign to me. what a week! [i've missed our correspondences. i've missed them terribly.] i have surprises for you! oh yes i do! i just had to drop you a line. because i missed you. in a few hours then.....♥♥♥.
from permeation :
my dearest jenny - your entries always speak volumes about where i am. half of the time, i want to take your words, wrap them in quotations and use them as my own - so that i don't have to think about anything. xxx
from lettersmith :
hahaha. thank you. and i ain't nobody, just spotted you on recent public entries a while ago and was interested. i really like this latest one, it reminds me of a poem i really love by sharon olds called "topography." (http://wisdomportal.com/Romance/Olds-Topography.html , if you haven't read it.)
from moonsocket :
j, "no one knows..." could be the single most beautiful thing i have read. ever. not even kidding. xo.
from boyecho :
and i wish i could draw.
from aperfectmap :
tabula rasa and te deum really kill me - in a great way, of course (to make a quick return to the discussion of pärt). and for the most recent entry, thank you much. glad to see you coming back with some wonderful images.
from permeation :
let's go away together. a rendezvous of favorite songs and laughter.
from crestone :
Fantastic ocean photos--they look dreamy and make me homesick!
from moonsocket :
i want to be on the beach. with you.
from boyecho :
driving back home from another town today i crossed this bridge over water from the gulf of mexico... i thought it somewhat sad that again, i was so close to the ocean but i didn't have time, nor the chance to go.... i thought of all the people i know about who are such suckers for the water and maybe the sand.. and i get home to read of your ocean journey.
from lostelephant :
You are a dear and amazing in your own right. Let's be friends and hold hands and junk.
from permeation :
jenny, your lips are just another story on their own. beautiful.
from moonsocket :
goodmorning! so i feel like the biggest jerk on the planet right about now. yep. but i tell you what i'm going to do, tonight, after work i am going to grab a glass of red, sit my face down, and write you back the best email in the history of emails! [that is going to be no small feat, given our track record!] i have a surprise for you too! it has to do with the 'chubby bunnies'. now, if i can just find it......♥.
from aperfectmap :
i've been listening to a lot of arvo pärt recently. that minimalist composition really does the trick sometimes. kind of made me think of our general predisposition toward max richter, though pärt's compositions sometimes seem even more unbearably real and beautiful.
from permeation :
soooooooo - your new layout is so sweet. WHERE'S MIIIINE!?!?!?! ;) x
from moonsocket :
[oooo i'm a cheeky little monkey ain't i?!!] xox
from moonsocket :
there may be some truth in yr statement. i somehow attracted you, now didn't i?
from moonsocket :
YOU!!!!!
from moonsocket :
haha! [i like you.]
from idividedbyi :
♥♥♥
from moonsocket :
re:"5": we may have a problem here.
from idividedbyi :
did you have intoxicated fingers as you typed, j?!! tell the truth now! ha! i hope you have fun tonight with the past. play safe. i know you will. xox.
from permeation :
oooh im going to miss you too, J. we'll exchange tales when i return, oui? x
from permeation :
oh J - your last entry (pieces). thats exactly, to the T, how i feel. ((((u)))) x
from idividedbyi :
hi! i'm sending you hugs and love and bon iver. all for you. xox.
from idividedbyi :
you and me both, j. mend us up good yes please. hope you are well, sugar. feels like it been forever since we've "talked". i think i miss you....
from permeation :
you're the hottest creature on the planet. im SO glad you've made three mixes that i can now flood my ears and body with. xxx
from moonsocket :
i am writing you back right NOW! i decided to do a quick peek here, and yr mix found me. the soundtrack to my words.........
from lostelephant :
Oh I already had you in without your knowledge. If I can get your e-mail address I will send you my ideas for some artwork, but would love to see what you could come up with. It may be a while before I can properly reimburse you for artwork I already know is going to be amazing, and it may take me awhile to get the actual album done (ha), but I would be so hyper-excited if we could team up somehow. You can check out rustinfearssatan.blogspot.com to get a better grip of what's going on before you decide.
from idividedbyi :
don't cry, j. we're going to be ok you know. go listen to the new william fitzsimmons on his myspace. we are going to be ok. ♥.
from photoslut :
i enjoy yours.
from idividedbyi :
you make my day. you really do.
from aperfectmap :
glad to know you are still here to read my occasional thought experiments, but i hope that you will reconsider and get back into posting. pictures, words, anything; after all, you are one of the reasons i am still invested in this business.
from permeation :
before, i might panic. but now, i've got you everywhere - so you can be anywhere and it's all OK.
from lostelephant :
you convinced me. but that means you cannot go as well. my wee heart cannot bear it.
from moonsocket :
j, why? please don't go.
