Annie Wu, from my last trip to New York, THREE YEARS AGO.  
I figure it’s all different now, right? All the tall buildings are gone, it’s all parks and hippies and everything moves really slowly and folks just chill all the time, yeah? 
Unrelated: I can seem to find almost No pictures of Ms. Wu online.  I find this strange because 1) it’s the Internet! and 2) it’s the Future!
3) She’s a dope lady, excellent artist.  She draws Hawkeye! Why are there no pictures…was this even the real Annie Wu I met? Does Annie Wu even exist…yes.  Yes she does.  Don’t be silly.  Comics don’t draw themselves, that’s ridiculous.

I learn little tricks, become very satisfied with myself, then forget them for years.

Going through the archives…why did I never post this anywhere? What were you thinking, Past-Me? Why keep this one to yourself? What secrets reside in this photo that you sought to lock away???
Or maybe it just slipped my mind.

By Bernardo Hernandez, Vice President, Flickr

Photography has the power to fascinate, inspire, and even change the way we see and understand the world around us. At Flickr, we celebrate this along with our community of users. Today, we’re excited to introduce the first annual Flickr…

I was one of the judges for this! WITH MY HANDS, I WILL BE HELPING SHAPE THE FUTURE OF PHOTOGRAPHY.  

In two weeks, gallery in New York! I’LL BE THERE.  YOU SHOULD BE THERE, TOO.  

I’m currently trying to figure out how to put Judge on my business cards.

Malibu sunset with Lou Noble.

Before we found the beach too inhospitable and staged an orderly, if rapid, retreat.

Look, I just watched Frank (2014, A-), I’m listening to Trout Mask Replica, it’s still in the 80s outside…it’s getting a little weird right now, you dig?

We got run off the beach by a dead chicken with no head and a tide that wouldn’t stop rising.  
Tide so high, smelled weird, washing up all kinds of sea biomass.  Swear to god Devin and I saw some weird eggplant with feet. All kinds of weird stuff ends up on the beach at high tide.  
Ended up in a mad dash back up to the mainland, took pictures until the sun made its daily exit.  Watched an old guy pee.  It was a weird afternoon, y’all.

Our latest interview is up on this site!  This time we sat down and kibitzed with Emily Shur, had lots of good laughs while talking about her stellar work.  
CHECK IT OUT NOW OR THE EARTH IS DOOMED. 

I talked with Emily Shur about her work, career, and whether or not it’s too late for her to achieve her life-long dream of being an old man. It was rad.  
Go look!

“If we moved furniture for a living we’d have a bad back or bad knees. We think for a living. We try to create. We try to constantly think of cool ideas. And every once in a while there’s a breakdown in the engine… I guess that’s the price you pay.” — Violent J (via twiststreet)
