The NYC recap!
Category: Travels

Hey all! Just a quick post to let the lot o' ye know I'm doing alright. I'm currently on the second leg of my Northern tour, having left New York City early Monday morning and writing to you LIVE from Boston, Mass. New York was pretty sweet! In addition to catching up with an old college pal and learning the depressing fates of a number of my classmates (depressing for me, that is, since just about everyone seems to be doing so well and making so much of him/herself), I snagged a ton of films in NYC's Chinatown -- The Twins Effect, Protégé de la Rose Noire, Lavender, The Eye, Midnight Fly, Golden Chicken 2, Sakuya: The Slayer of Demons, Tomie: Forbidden Fruit, and one other film I can't find an IMDb listing for. Not to mention that two thirds of these are DVDs -- as opposed to VCDs -- so that's like a milligram of Viagra for my DVD penis. What a haul! (more...)

YAY reunion!!!
Category: Photo … Travels

Well, I was definitely surprised at how much I enjoyed myself at that reunion. I pretty much expected to be sitting on a stool with my back to the bar, watching all of the people who actually knew and remembered each other mingling and having a good time while I drank away my sorrows and hummed Billy Joel's "Pianoman" to myself, but to my surprise people not only recognized and remembered me but actually seemed glad to catch up with me (and in direct violation of the "I hate everyone" rule, the reverse was true as well). So yeah, it was great. In the coming days I'll probably post a few more pics from the event (or not; we'll see), but in the meantime here are a couple... (more...)

Wes in the Crystal City Labyrinth!
Category: Photo … Travels

If you live in the MD-DC-VA metro area and have a crush on someone who's anything like me, you just found the perfect date spot. Admittedly, one of the reasons that I don't drive is that I like to wander around on foot (since I'm never in a hurry and don't at all mind being away from here). Few things are as much fun for me as getting lost in some new and previously uncharted place. Of course, I always know that I'll eventually find my way back, but I have no idea how long it'll take me -- or, more importantly, what I'll see on the way -- and that's really exciting. (more...)
