Hey friends! This is a placeholder because I am 48 hours out from my wedding and have too much to do to watch the same tv show for three hours!
I’ll catch up! In the meantime go see what our good buddy Fister Roboto has to say at Left hand horror!

“You came back. Your boy came back. You get to come back. You do.”
We return perhaps half a year following the end of Season 3 to the prison group as a thriving community. Time has passed and, with the influx of new people from Woodbury and elsewhere, the prison has been fortified and altered to suit its new occupants.
You might recall how last year before the premier of AHS:Asylum I made some predictions based upon their promo spots. Predictably, they were incredibly wrong, but somehow also amazingly right. I don’t anticipate this year’s advertisements to be any more honest about what’s to come, in spite of how painfully stylish they are. I’ll give it to AHS–what it lacks in clear thinking it makes up for in zazz. But fuck it; this blog has been quiet all summer, so without further unnecessary preamble I present some wild theories about the new season.
What are your predictions?
In true Walking Dead fashion, this trailer starts out with everything calm and our heroes in control, then things quickly degenerate to mayhem, mysteries, and conflict.
It’s clear from this trailer that the prison is a problem for our group; they’ve allowed it to be a symbol of enduring safety even though their time there has been fraught with problems. Now with the group having absorbed Woodbury’s survivors, more people means more hands to work but also more mouths to feed.
As expected, at some point in this season the prison’s defenses will fail and the group will be on the road once more.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this!
Right now in this the year of two-thousand-and-thirteen, my boyfriend and his boyfriend have just set up the good old SNES to play some NHL 94. From the living room I can hear the jubilant sounds of two thirty-year old men discussing hilarious stats and ratings of long-retired players and reliving the halcyon days of making Gretzky’s head bleed*. They’re forming up plans for a tournament they estimate might take the better part of a weekend, so I’m forming up plans to get the fuck out of dodge and hope someone remembers to feed my cats something other than spilled whiskey and burnt pizza.
Since my recent life has been pretty much all photography all the time, the natural thought is to plan a road trip to work with some different models in a different state. Or go back to the Museum of the Confederacy. Or see New Orleans. Or go to the beach. Or to big midwestern cities in which I’ve never spent much time!
Because that’s what a normal person’s travel route looks like, right? Some kind of Bermuda Triangle of Americana? And what’s, like, 60 hours of driving between friends?
For as much as I love my home and my home life, once I get further than an hour from home the temptation to just keep going is so strong.
Somebody regale me with hilarious road trip stories!
*That’s a Swingers joke and if you didn’t get it you should be ashamed of yourself.

Hi friends. I still love you, but now that spring is all over the place and I’ve finished my internship to boot, there are literally a million things I have been wanting to do more than spend time in front of a computer! I have been doing a bunch of new photography work with a bunch of gorgeous models; if you’re into seeing that sort of thing I will direct you to my photography tumblr (NSFW).
Aside from photography I’ve been drinking in the park, went to my first hot yoga class (still recovering), have been doing some major spring cleaning, am preparing my summer garden (the tomato seeds I saved last year are growing! One step closer to surviving the zombie apocalypse!), and pretending I’m planning my wedding (I’m not, which doesn’t really stop people from asking for details). I haven’t made a lot of time for blogs or twitter (the latter of which is a painful reminder that the Stanley Cup playoffs are happening right now without my team), but I have made time for instagram, and for putting film into several of my vintage cameras!
I’ve been catching up on laundry and reading books, and there’s a new season of Mad Men (because apparently I just can’t quit you, Sunday nights on AMC), and I have been making some seriously gourmet cheese plates and boyfriend and I have been doing some small home improvements.
How are you?
