Without the Past, There Would Be No Present


An ode to new turning to old.

Walk Like An Egyptian, in Ancient Egypt

Walk Like an Egyptian, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

A City In The Sea


“There open fanes and gaping graves
Yawn level with the luminous waves;
But not the riches there that lie
In each idol’s diamond eye-
Not the gaily-jewelled dead
Tempt the waters from their bed;
For no ripples curl, alas!
Along that wilderness of glass-
No swellings tell that winds may be
Upon some far-off happier sea-
No heavings hint that winds have been
On seas less hideously serene.”


Artists and Fleas, and A Hot Toddy, Please


My booth at the Artists and Fleas Holiday Bazaar

This weekend, Brooklyn was out-of-control freezing.  Despite the hot toddy drinking weather, a bunch of awesome vendors (including myself) came out to North 7th and Wythe to sell their little hearts out at the Artist’s and Fleas Holiday Bazaar.  Though it was a bit quiet and very new, the space and products were definitely something to check out.

While hopping around the Bazaar, I came across sweatshirts and tees by Brooklyn based menswear designer, Alexander Campaz.  Sweatshirts were super cozy, colorful, and great to hibernate in during this shitty, windy weather.  And, the fact that they’re mens didn’t stop me from trying them on (the small fit basically like a women’s medium).

Naturally, the only money I made went to these things.
