(exclamation mark)

there are lots of signs across the city that i love, mainly because they have screwy punctuation or grammar.

this is one of my favourites. parentheses? really?

my favourite street

i am a little obsessive about taking weird routes when walking around philadelphia because the side streets are just so beautiful.
quince street and the little "streets" around is pretty much my favourite - it's full of so many little hidden treasures.

greyhound tour

half way to my mother's home on saturday on the ever trusty greyhound, the bus broke down and the driver decided heading back to philly was the thing to do.
thanks greyhound.
by hour two, on the way back through north philly, i got bored enough to become totally snap happy. now i just want to head back up there - some weird stuff happens in the outskirts of this city.

flicking through some of my pictures, i found that there are random collections of things popping up and on sunday apparently i was all about pink.

this includes what is my currently very pink knee, which I couldn't get in focus because no matter what I did my knee was just too close to my head to get a good picture of it. might also be because i was attempting this at bedtime and was slightly delirious with sleep.

also, spinto band

my original local favourites.
i've seen them at the north star, tritone, johnny brenda's and now the church.
i'm a mini, kinda crap stalker.

frightened rabbit at the church

expressive to say the least.
one of my favourite shows of the year.

sun bean

when i was little and the light would catch something and make one of those little spots of light on the wall i asked my dad what it was and he told me it was a sunbeam.

only i didn't think that there were sunbeams i thought they were sun beans...

the notwist and dosh

So, first we sang happy birthday to Dosh's wife, Erin, over the phone (sorry it's so dark...):

Then came The Notwist in all their German goodness:

Who somehow incorporate wii-motes into their "instruments":

And it was awesome...
Kind of a bizzaro night at the First Unitarian Church.

don't you love the balloon detail for the "O"?

crowd gazing

lately i've been into taking a sneeky snap of the people in the the crowds of the shows.
i'm like the worst paparazzi ever.
