Thanks for all of your emails regarding the Ravelry invites. It made me wish I had more to share, but I only had two. I did the easiest thing and gave the invites to whoever emailed first. I could have never chosen otherwise. Am sure the site will be open to everyone soon enough.
So before I continue and tell you how the CW has ripped my heart out, I wanna ask you, 'Have you seen the Discovery Channel's 'Deadliest Catch'? It is a pretty riveting show about king crab fishing in the Bering Sea. It's pretty scary actually.
Photographer/Fisherman Corey Arnold wrote up a piece about 'How to become an Alaskan Fisherman' for fecalface.com. I recommend both his photography and reading his story. If you are in LA, you can check out Corey's solo exhibition right now at the Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica.
So back to the heart-ripping network of the CW. They've not only cancelled the Gilmore Girls, but also Veronica Mars. Sure I'll be the first to admit that it was kinda nearing the time for GG to be wrapped up, but so soon, so suddenly. Surely that wasn't necessary. And VMars is a whole different story - we only got three seasons. It just wasn't enough. I love singing the intro song and I can't say that about a lot of the tv shows I watch. It's hard to believe that next week's VMars episode will be the last one I'll ever watch.
All these series finales in the span of a couple of weeks is just too much. We are also down to the last two Sopranos episodes we'll ever watch - crazy. Thank goodness Entourage will be continuing - that show brings much joy and laughter into our household.
Two more days until I'm back in BrisVegas - yahoo!
ps on a completely random note, does anyone want to buy these shoes (tabikutsu) off me?
They are split toe slip on shoes in purple sold at Sou Sou in Omotesando here in Tokyo. Actually they are now dead stock and are being manufactured no longer...hmm, maybe I should keep them - ha! More photos of the shoes here. I don't even know if I wore them once. They are 26cm long. I'm usually a 9 or a 9.5, which is a men's 8. They are unisex. Made of cotton with a rubber sole. Made in Japan. Originally paid 4900 yen. Selling for $25 (OBO) plus shipping.
