Oh my gosh, so cute.
I think I’ve always loved putting these posts together because these are the types of photos I’ve always wanted to take. They’re so simple and minimalistic, but yet they say so much and they say something different to everyone. I’ve asked Veronica a couple of times now why she enjoys these posts and now that I think about it – I’m not sure if I’ve ever gotten a real answer. Veronica, can you let us know so I can include it in the next post? All I know is that in college she would hound me to get these done and out. And then after she had spent some time scanning over the photos (a few minutes) she’d ask for another one. (DJ Khaled) I think I would always just laugh and say, “Veronica, these take time.” And they do! This one post took about three months to put together.
I’ve done 44 of these now. That’s an incredible number to me. And it’s interesting to me that each one of these tells a different story though I’m not sure what that story is. I look through some of the older “A Collection” posts and sometimes I wonder why I chose a certain photo. I’ll look at it and scrunch up my face and be like, “Why? What did this mean to me?” But I guess what it just means is that it was all about timing. In that exact moment that I saw that photo as I was scanning over lots of photos, that one spoke out enough to me that I had to include it. Maybe I was feeling sassy, meek, contemplative, curious…I’m not able to put my finger on it for every photo and I like that I don’t have to.
Sometimes I write posts on Yow Yow! that are very personal and I look at the words and I question if that’s what I actually wanted to convey or if people will interpret it in a different way than I attended. With these posts, I don’t have to worry as much, but these are just as personal because I’m really saying how I feel, but in the most visual way.
The only way to celebrate is with this video. If I weren’t sick, I’d be craving a slice from Delfina right about now.

In addition to Katie AND Cameron as writers for Yow Yow! I’ve also joined the blogging team. With Katie’s move to the Bay Area, Cameron and I will be covering Seattle to the best of our ability and keeping ya’ll updated. Also the PR Specialist, I can be found writing posts about music, movies, and sporadic findings on the interwebz.
When I’m not working my day job, I can be found reading, looking up the news for Yow Yow! coverage, and playing various sports around Seattle, in addition to going on adventures with my friends, that is.
Thanks for welcoming me to the team!

Readers, were you like us and watched music videos incessantly in the 90s? I remember waking up early and rushing home after school to catch VH1 and MTV. There’s something to be said for the ability to tell a story in 3-4 minutes while tailoring imagery to song.
Amos Lee nails it in Flowers directed by Mike Healey and Kelly Goeller. The concept of the video is stop motion using only white paper. With two weeks of creating the world and two weeks of filming, this video reminds me how much artistry is involved in making music videos and reinforces my love for them.
It’s been awhile since I’ve come across a new design that has stopped me dead in my tracks. And as I write this, I remember that I just posted that “99 Problems” project a couple days ago.
Brooklyn-based artist Monica Ramos crafted these creative illustrations called “Comfort Food” and their so incredibly quirky and funny to me that I had to feature it.

There’s a quirky new Tumblr out right now that calls out Instagram users for using the #nofilter hashtag when they actually did use a filter. The person monitoring this page must
a) know their ish about Instagram
b) have a lot of time on their hands
To be honest though when I see the #nofilter hashtag on my feed, I’m just like “who cares?” Before Instagram, people would just use digital cameras and no one would say #nophotoshop.

Good morning! I hope all of you had a lovely 4th of July yesterday. I stopped by my co-worker’s BBQ before heading to Seattle and watching the fireworks from her rooftop! While we were there, a few of us reminisced about last year’s 4th of July firework fail in San Diego. Anyone remember this?!
From our rooftop in Seattle! Best view in the house 🙂
It was nice to be back in Seattle again for the 4th.
