Camping


I hate all camps. When I was a child my mother used to dump me in camps and day cares all the time and I never got along with the other kids. I used to just sit around all day waiting to leave while the other kids picked on me for being weird, jewish or both. For the record, I’m still both those things. I’ve never had good experiences at camps. At the year 10 camp, I shared my tent with a good friend who went on to bring Uzo in his bag in a flask, get drunk by himself then confess his love for my ex girlfriend and urinate on himself. For the rest of the night he was mumbling so loudly that I had to sleep outside the tent in the rain. It was very cold.

Artists


I remember when I first launched the label I got all these facebook messages from people I wasn’t friends with or haven’t spoken to in years being like “Hey! I bumped into you for 10 seconds at a party and ran off because I found someone cooler (anyone else) to talk to but I see you run a label! Let’s be BFF’s now! We can get a drink and I’ll shove my designs down your throat. Tuesday night?” Of course they didn’t ACTUALLY say that but that’s pretty much how I was reading them. I probably wasn’t wrong either. I’ve been receiving a lot of emails from artists lately. I am totally cool with this, though. I’ll check out everything that gets emailed. Here’s one guy which I thought was really talented but emailed me a couple months too late:

5 Weird Habits I Have


1. If I think someone is looking at me or staring at me I’ll create a new habit like pretending to bite my nails because I’m too awkward otherwise.

2. When I say “I know” I really want them I know it so I say “I KNOWWW” and gesticulate wildly with my hands. My friends used to mimic me by doing this all the time.

3. I hate looking up. I have a rare eye disorder which means I can’t look up unless I extend my neck and then I feel really vulnerable.

4. In the early years of high school I had strange friends that would poke me all the time so I get nervous people are going to poke me when they move their arms around me.

5. For some reason every now and then I’ll lose the ability to pronounce words properly and I’ll stutter and other things so just wont talk for hours. This leads to people thinking I’m bored or being rude in social situations sometimes.

5 Things I Remember Reading


1. If you’re trying to scope out if someone is interested in you or not one thing to look out for is if s/he initiates texting you between 12 and 5 in the afternoon. If so it means you’re on their mind.

2. “Don’t try charm people. Try be charmed.”

3. “I like to think people are like bread. My wife is like raison toast – sweet but packs a punch. I’m more like a bagel. I’m stale and people want to cut me with a knife.”

4. Scott Pilgram vs the world was a commercial failure. (But was one of my favourite movies of last year.)

5. When you buy a new pair of jeans you shouldn’t wash them for at least 6 months. (I read that on a note inserted into a new pair of jeans.. Back when I could still afford decent jeans.)
