11:34am: this is to this as this is to this. it's kind of sad to think about. fatalistic, ya know.

    Here's an artist building I know near the BART in Oakland, right by the gone Cypress Freeway. I always look in the windows as I speed by: second floor, NE corner. The door is down there near that white car. You go in and up two half flights of wooden stairs to a diagonal corridor through the building. It's a weird layout. The stairs produce a slow trebly sound, boom, boom, boom: my feet, the echoey space, always carrying something.

9:59am: thriving vallejo series: yeah! //I got a thing about old and yellow.
Nice old house a few blocks from me on Sacramento Street. It's got lots of trees in the back, and I imagine myself playing electric guitar on the front porch to the passing cars. Thinking of getting a telecaster. I used to play guitar - it's been a long time.
