The Fight Club theory of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off:
My favorite thought-piece about Ferris Bueller is the “Fight Club” theory, in which Ferris Bueller, the person, is just a figment of Cameron’s imagination, like Tyler Durden, and Sloane is the girl Cameron secretly loves. One day while he’s lying sick in bed, Cameron lets “Ferris” steal his father’s car and take the day off, and as Cameron wanders around...
April 26-27, 2008: The Lost Camera
“04/26/08 I’ve lost my camera!!!! For real, this time!!! ARGH! I was out in el campo horseback riding with Ezekiel and it just fell off my belt loop! I felt nothing! I can’t believe it! And its probably under water! But we have been praying and Ruth is willing to organize a search party. I know God is the Almighty provider, so I’m not too worried - I’ll just lose a...

“04/25/08 I just found and killed FIVE SPIDERS under my bed!! Why did I look? WHY?! OK, OK, OK - Today was really awesome! … First we got up early to go into La Plata to use the internet cafe, then us girls found an outdoor cafe to have coffee. Then, this afternoon, we nearly killed ourselves laughing while doing laundry. After a while, Tara and I had to go out into the pasture to...

“Wednesday, 04/23/08 Today 2 leaves caught my eye as I was walking the grounds of “The Kings’s Refuge” orphanage. One red and another yellow. I picked them up because I think God wanted to tell me something. I’ll let you know what happens. We gave the kids their gift of clothes this evening. It was amazing, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it! The older...

Tonight I had a sudden realization that it has been one year since my first step on Argentine soil. No wonder I’d been feeling melancholy the last few hours. From my journal: “04/22/08 Yesterday & Today = 15 hours of travel including a layover in Atlanta. My siesta today was for a couple hours, so it threw my sleeping pattern off. I LOVE THIS ORPHANAGE! It looks great here, in...

Summer Playlist Mosaic
I hope this is a good mix of 1) songs I have heard too often recently, 2) songs I never tire of, and 3) oldies. I would not allow myself to use the same artist or band twice, almost unfortunately. I’m sure it will undergo some serious facelifts by the time my summer technically starts. Sweet Thing, by Keith Urban The Show, by Lenka Star Girl, by McFly Island on the Coast, by Band of...

I’m working out my summer playlist this warm, sunny afternoon, but feel like I’ve hit a wall. I need some new sounds. Considering Kings of Leon. Well, at least I have retro Bryan Adams for filler. I’ll post my results soon.
People who think that morning is the best part of the day are the same kinds of...– Home Room (via filmquotes)
I feel like all I’ve been posting for about seven years has been videos, so I’m going to try for a bit more variety from now on.
"Crying Men" by Sam Taylor-Wood →
Crying Men is a series of photographic portraits of famous film actors.
I’ve always loved this performance. (Does his suit seem oddly dry to you?)
It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve...– Mark Twain
