in no particular order... i think.
been forcing myself to play my guitars more so i dont forget i can play them.
(learning a song would help i think.... make acoustic suggestions? yes/si/oui)
while burning through a roll of film today in the amazing
weather we had an older gentleman followed me into a
corner store to ask if i was takin pictures of graffiti. after
replying yes, he then almost forcefully suggested he contact
his random photography friend (of whose name i obviously
cant remember) and give him my name and someway of
contacting me.. i told him look up shaunwilliamcallahan on flickr.
then with a puzzled almost offended look admitted he didnt know
what that was and kept sayin shaunwilliams. haha
(i really hope he doesnt though... my photography skill still feels
very highschool... hoping by summer i will have some more confidence)
also saw mini cacti in the window of said corner store with price tags
on it. pointed at the one i wanted so i could have a bit of arizona in
my apt. she sadly replied they are not for sale. dammit.
im really conflicted on when i should visit tucson next...
2am-4am text messages are hilarious when read after waking up.
i watched Crossroads today... the ralph machio movie. not the britney spears
one. then proceeded to play acoustic blues for about an hour solid afterward.
annie laurie malarkey took my picture today.
a lot of laughs. talent. epic guitar solos in the
background and beastly things in my room haha.
i cant wait to take photos with and of her this
summer when she returns "indefinitely."
im wearing reading glasses right now...
yet i have pretty much perfect vision without them...
though the frames do help keep my massive amounts
of hair tamed a bit out of my eye.
im feel im becoming more selfish recently and more bold.
yet i look at both of these things in a positive way. but at
the same time these selfish acts have been seemingly making
the other people involved in the area happier too. its really quite odd.
whenever i feel my ego maybe gettin out of hand ive found a
few things to immediately put myself back in check.
ie: ask out girls i think would like me yet know will always say no
(most recently tysons former roommate jamie haha). also try
singin a song i know i dont have the voice for but try anyway.
play street fighter IV on hard or online until im tempted to
throw the controller into the tv. look at all the hugh grant
movies i own. view my credit card debt. take out my tooth. damn...
okay got a lil depressed typing that last one. yikes.
im in the best physical shape of my life and probably the healthiest too
i had the best time on the dance floor last night at lofi... seriously
i could have danced till 4am. and for all the hate Mad Rad has been
getting they totally killed it last night. i forgot how much fun it
is watchin those kids perform. its a goal of mine to catch their
shows more often. OH and DARWIN was in top form as well. no complaints.
ahh morgan van holt just popped up on the interwebs....
him and i need to catch up. we are about to gossip so much haha. yesssss
i cant decide if its really worth getting anything better than
the canon rebel xsi and puttin more money into the lenses i want.
ive decided im stayin in tonight just right now. the difficult question now is.
mean girls, (finally reaquired!)
the wackness (still havent watched it)
adult swim (classic standby)
episode IV (duh)
darjeeling limited (tooth humor)
this really is quite a terrible blog entry haha.

sooo after a roll of 800 i was really burnt out on all the grain but both of my closest camera shops were out of 400. yet... lucky me (sorta) found a really old roll of kodak 400 in a lost pocket of my camera bag. (side note: really need to clean that out)
anyway. not knowing how old the film really was but not wanting 800 again i took a chance and loaded it up.. lost a lot of really good shots. after getting them put on disc they all ended up still grainy annnnnd many had exposure issues and terrible contrast. sigh.
PLUS im really finding light is holding me by the balls right now too. i see great shots... hold up the camera and find i cant get the shot due to light. grumble grumble. a lot of these missed shots make me wish i had a DSLR so i could just crank up the ASA/ISO whatever and get the shot. but alas... not yet but soon. soon soon
(john belushi's SNL rant on the luck of the irish used to be here)
(but they deleted the video.... putas!)

i finally got around to knockin out some film. the second roll (400) was kinda tough cause the light meter was buggin out half the roll. the third (800) was a lot of fun just takin a lot of random pics through out my day off, yet some crazy business went down when i rolled it back.. a bit too tight..
i have some funny quotes i should type up and some other news to deliver.. but i'm a bit too side tracked with hunger right now...
