Way in the past, but too grand not to talk about: Shara's Birthday

So yeah, my biffle/roomate Shara turned 21 this past september. It was a paint party/house show/bonfire&drumcircle. Basically all the normal party choices in gainesville smashed into one giant hermaphic super-party! Here is some footage from the evening.

My boyfriend Frank took this video when the party was just starting. He is quite talented at shooting videos with a story. Epic tales of adventure.

He shot this one later in the night:

Some of our friends played music later in the night. This is another biffle of mine, Xochiquetzal, who plays super awesome folk music and sings songs about love and nature and hating the government.

This is my friend Tristan and his friend David, who are the head of music projects Ostral and Levek, respectively:

Lovely night with lots of lovely people :)

Hello everyone! Welcome fellow cat freaks! My name is Colleen, and unfortunately, cats will not be the only thing I am blogging about. Although they sure are cute.

I've decided to start a blog for several reasons.
Reason 1: Everyone else is doing it.
Reason 2: to share recipes! I am an avid fan of food-related blogs and pretty much everything that can fall under the label "food". I make cupcakes, indian food, soup, breads, tex-mex, scones, vegan deelites, fried chicken, mediterranean, raw food, nom nom nom... I might also be sharing some arts/crafts/DIY projects (I have long term plans to build a rabbit hutch... stay tuned!!)
Reason 3: to post adorable pictures and videos of animals. Joking. (.....or am I?)
Reason 4: to write about local (Gainesville, FL atm)/not local art and music, which is probably why everyone ever starts a blog, but I like to talk about it as much as the next person. Some of my favorites at the moment are beach house, mum, neil young (really just the album "harvest").
Reason 5: To document and glamorize my grand misadventures!!

Anywho, I'm off to enjoy couch time with my lovely roomate, Shara. Toodles*
