I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun.”
it is my first summer in boston.
some nights it makes me miss carolyn.
when we’d drive down after work to see a show.
–> rainer maria. david bazan. lovedrug. eisley. etc.
laugh & dream & walk along the old streets after midnight.
talking about what it would be like, after college, when we
would leave the country & move to the city & start life anew.
it never happens just like you think it would, but life anew happens nonetheless.
we’d hit the interstate.
finished with our words.
windows down, radio up.
& this was our soundtrack.
*maps [yeah yeah yeahs]
*the awful truth of loving [rainer maria]
*when they really get to know you they will run [pedro the lion]
*the boy who blocked his own shot [brand new]
*lua [bright eyes]
*space cowboy [steve miller band]
*keep on loving you [reo speedwagon
*lay lady lay [bob dylan]
*after the thrill is gone [the eagles]
this is why everyone driving by is honking their horns
this is why everyone walking by is yelling “Go Celts.. Hoorah”
[or, something that would have been distinguishable about five pints of sam adams earlier, but is now complete jarble]
and this is why boston is a very fun city to live in.
this also just makes me happy.
because back in the day, i was a huge larry bird fan.
joel & i have started a new community photo blog.
it can’t exist without you… please check it out and join us with your polaroids.
we’d also love if you sent a few words along with it.
or chose to write on the bottom of your polaroid before scanning it.
the site should be changing its look soon.
we are in experimenting mode.
