There are two types of people in this world—one’s with computer desktops that look like this:

And people who have desktops that look more like this:

I took this screenshot of my personal desktop approx 10 minutes ago, and I must say. This looks pretty good. For me. You really don’t want to see my work desktop (I’ve sent pics of that to a few people and destroyed my reputation as a functional person).

I don’t know about you, but I love screenshots. I screenshot text convos, funny stills from TV shows, important info not to lose, and my desktop becomes a dumping ground of things that in one moment I thought “I need to save this.” Going back through the things on my desktop cracked me up, and I thought this really is the closest a person could get at a look into my brain.

So today I bring to you, my brain as told my screenshots and clutter on my desktop from the last few months. After I post this, I’ll clean up, I promise!


I posted this video on Twitter and I got a comment—”Sand needs to be softer” and I realized then that my lack of attention to detail will always fail me in sandisfying video content. But I still thought my Rothko inspired sand video would fill a niche not yet out there.

California Adventure premiered their live Frozen stage show, and ever since seeing it I was obsessed with finding fail videos of the Elsa dress transformation.

Couldn’t stop taking screenshots of this typically-inappropriate America’s Next Top Model “biracial” photoshoot where the models had to pose like BIRACIAL PEOPLE WHAT and every single model was in black or brown face. 2009 was nuts. I mean, 2017 is still a shit show…

As you can tell I was indeed binge-watching all of America’s Next Top Model that was available to me on Hulu. And my god, what was Tyra thinking. I mean, don’t get me wrong I’m happy these shoots exist, but hahahah oh man.

Who doesn’t love a good quiz. And yes, I know I’m not Canadian. And this info is probably being sold to marketers…

Aren’t Facebook “memories” the friggin’ worst? Here’s one I was served of Zeen from 7 years ago (before we were really friends and I was just doing set photography)

Whenever I find hair I like I also screenshot that. This pic made me mess my colored hair. Also not sure where I found this.

Edited photos from asian mamas working in the arts, the first show that the collective put together. Dinners to shows to zines, more coming soon.

Edited a few photos (very delayed) of Zach’s sister’s farm. They are chilling on my desktop.

A pic of Dobby from the Universal website that I had to text and email to Roger, from the Toyota maintenance place I took my car. I got my car back and he was missing. I reported the problem immediately and then had to explain who/what Dobby was to about 4 people separately. All while being embarrassed I cared this much about Dobby!!!! It’s a happy ending though—I got Dobby back. He was accidentally placed in another white Toyota…

I’ll leave it here with the Dobby story. I have more! If this is even a little amusing to anybody, I’ll share more.

Much love friends.
