Ended up with a tattoo paired with a hangover this morning.
This is what last night looked like at the Smooth Bartender Club.
Let’s put it this way, I had a great fucking day at work, am nearly finished with Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk which was lent to me by my darling (yes I now have, and call her, a darling), just got home from a splendid fucking coffee / croque madame combo at some place and I’m not going to lie to you because I’m just not in the lying mood as if I’m ever. I don’t feel like writing right this instant, I’ve felt so damn ambitious the past few days that I feel if my prominent efforts are wasted anymore tonight I’ll be a god damned rock tomorrow sitting in a desk chair looking at a screen.
Let me bottle it up and just give you some new pictures, and as always they’re all typically weeks to months old. Dusty Negatives & Dirty Kids. (site’s not really live but I’ll post that link anyways, something else I need to get ambitious about) Enjoy your Valentine’s day in two days, I’ll be somewhere special with someone special.

I’ve been sick, I’ve been tired, I’ve been entertaining, I’ve been entertained, drunk, sober, happy and sad. Moving to another country is as easy as you’ve never imagined and damn difficult in the ways you wouldn’t imagine. For one, realize that unless you were born in or once lived in the country you plan on moving to you’re going to have what I’d describe as an identity wipe. You arrive and while you may have friends and the skin on your back, you’re nobody. Your parents will check-up on you the best they can via social media and email, your friends will write “I miss you, come back!” on your facebook timeline or twitter and that’s the closest thing besides a flight you can get to them. That’s not even the tricky part, that’s just the sad part. The tricky part of starting this journey of mixed emotions is just that, mixed emotions. Half of you thinks that it’s better here and the other half wants to contest that with thoughts like “How much would I be getting paid in New York?” or “Is this company just a weak copy/sham compared to the incredibly advanced companies/powerhouses/machines of agencies that are already very well established and pushing the limits of innovation in the United States”. This has been a constant issue for me as I’m already unfortunately gifted with a brain that’s not especially intelligent, well-read or profound, but with a brain that’s unfortunately hooked up to a supercharger that’s without stop sucking in life and trying to analyze and process every bit of it at lightning speed into a solution to a problem personal or global to me. You can see where I’m conflicted and why I’m kind of not sorry for not posting frequently as I used to. Above all I want it to be known that I will return to that schedule of constant content here on Popflys, it will just take some time.
I think I’m going to finish up this winter/spring/summer with my job in Paris and then apply to back to school for a master’s degree. I miss the struggle, I don’t feel challenged and I can’t begin to think that I’m ready to ever live a nine-to-five life which is like falling off and never hitting ground, as I have just found myself to be doing. I’m sorry but I’m not sorry; here’s some links to shit I’ve found cool in the past few days. My rigorous and normal posting schedule will return soon my dear readers, trust me. I hope you’re all doing well/killing it. Keep wanting more and give up the snacks.

I broke out the scanner today and digitized some negatives while reading “Pulp.” A certain laydee is missed. You can’t achieve things through blue sky thinking, I’m going to get a whiskey. - Dusty Negatives & Dirty Kids.
