This is a great portrait, really. Took me by surprise while browsing #roswell, which I literally just started watching today - and I’m hooked.

The unaired remainder of Don’t Trust the B is now streaming on Hulu. I almost never think this, because I will watch and tolerate almost anything that has at least one redeemable character, but at second glance this show didn’t work that well and perhaps was rightfully cancelled.

I liked the idea of it: photography is a form of copying. Kids are a form of repetition. And looking at my kid with photography allowed me to see myself a new

SPRING CLEANING HELP?: I’m trying to unfollow a lot of the bull that has somehow cluttered up my dash and find new and intriguing, creative and intelligent blogs to follow. Any recommendations?
