hey there.
i like music and photography and the city.
here's a playlist for a party, some compilation CDs, and me trying to push some music onto my friends...
my photos can be found on flickr and lomohomes (both pretty out of date now, my photos are not making it as far as pixels at the mo)

i grew up here arms

entries are about half friends-locked.
if i friend you i may know you or more likely just be curious and like the way you write. there's no obligation to reciprocate, although i'm mostly harmless.
