One of the mixed blessings of being twenty and twenty-one and even twenty-three is the conviction that nothing like this, all evidence to the contrary notwithstanding, has ever happened to anyone before.”
— Joan Didion, “Goodbye to All That”
3 C-prints done so far for the art show!
BEST PLACE TO HELP A CHARITY WHILE BUYING STUFF”
As of today I’m officially a volunteer at Housing Works bookstore! I can’t wait to start next week because they are the coolest and everyone should buy books there.
Went to the NYHS for the first time last weekend! The WWI & NYC exhibit was awesome and I learned so many new facts! I think I need to work there at some point in my life.
Please join us, November 3rd, 2012, from 7-10pm, for a night a fun and creativity!
AMATEUR HOUR - A group art show featuring: Brittany Barnard, Ben Fitch, Jessica Kierson, Sarah Samuel & Emily Turner (me!). It’s my first art show so it’d be awesome if you came! I’ll be printing some pictures for the show and if you are so compelled, I can give them to you in return for some money.
There will also be poetry readings and live music.
Complimentary wine and beer served.

The Moth StorySLAM at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe.
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is a pretty awesome venue you guys.
xoxoxoxxoxoxoxoxoxo We love The Moth! Next one is Tuesday, August 14, theme “About Time.” Join us?
The Moth is great! They did some work at Casita Maria in the Bronx and the kids’ stories were so emotional.
My favorite Oscars moment:
10 years ago, only five months after September 11th, Woody Allen makes an unprecedented appearance at The Academy Awards (he had never appeared before, and has never since, and that likely won’t change this year with Midnight in Paris) to introduce a montage of films shot in New York City put together by Nora Ephron.
After seeing a Berenice Abbott photography exhibit at the Jeu de Paume in Paris I’ve been ridiculously homesick for New York.
As polar opposite as Paris and New York may seem at times, it’s hard to love one city and hate the other. Each is complex in its offerings, diverse in its appeal, and the debate over which city is supreme evidently warrants its own blog. Vahram Muratyan is the author and artist behind Paris versus New York: A Tally of Two Cities, a blog that pits the pride and joy of both cities against each other in a magnificent series of minimalist prints. Through colorful graphics that border on 8-bit simplicity, Paris and New York come head to head, making it harder than ever to choose which city does it best. Read more.

I picked this up in the bookstore the other day and it’s super cute!
