VHS tapes discovered this weekend after a bout of spring cleaning:
- *Truffaut’s Stolen Kisses (recorded off PBS 20 years ago and missing the first 10 seconds of the opening credits)
*Godard’s Breathless (again taped off PBS) followed by an unidentified police drama
*my piano recital at Steinway Hall circa 1992
*an episode of Oprah (not sure which one – it’s labeled “Oprah $$”)
*four Bryan Kest yoga videos
*a sealed AM/PM Rodney Yee yoga video
*my appearance on Art Works, an art news show in England, during my MFA degree show (my accent is a strange amalgam of pseudo-English and New Yorker)
A more thorough spring cleaning would have unearthed a pile of cassette tapes (on a scale of 1 to 10, how mean is it to throw away ex-boyfriends’ mixed tapes with handmade covers?), floppy disks and even a stash of Zip disks.
Obsolescence sure takes up a lot of space.

This series is making more sense to me… will try to formulate in words soon.

Shiny digital camera purchased – the Panasonic Lumix LX3. I heart it. It’s my new walking-around-in-the-neighborhood-and-see-what-I-see machine.
What I’ve been seeing a lot of and photographing recently? Trash.
Indoors I’ve been fiddling around with Indexhibit, wondering if I should migrate away from my current website design. It’s an addictive time-gobbler and partially to blame for my blog silence. You can also blame the hand stands.
Oh, and Twitter too.
A couple new Trash photos:
