The snow made me treat myself to some side streets while looking for photo opportunities on my way to work, this bitterly cold morning in Baku. The rapidly changing capital of Azerbaijan always has something in store. Just outside the centuries-old Taza Bazaar, I came across the unlikely sight of an old Soviet-era Volga brimming with golden winter apples. The strange beauty of the scene brought back childhood memories of apples carefully picked and stored in the basement of our home in Norway, and the apples turning sweeter as the months of winter went by. —Erik Andre Juriks
I’ve got dead birds on my brain. Digby’s been on a killing spree lately, and I’m left to clean them up. It’s hard picking up their little bodies and burying them or putting them in the trash. But I grew up around a lot of death in nature. My heart doesn’t break as much as it used to.
Good mail day from Zach.
knickerocker makes some of the cutest undies I’ve ever seen.
I have a job interview at this place tomorrow. I’ve never had frozen yogurt before in my life. This chain has a bunch of vegan options and they’re open late.

People have been reacting really positively to this zine and it’s awesome. You should read it!
I sell my dirty socks online and people always say “Really?!” when I tell them, so I wrote a zine about it. It includes why I do it, messages with buyers, some tips if you want to try it, and more! Photocopied in black and white, 25 pages long, and stapled. 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. February 2013

The Pig Preserve in Tenessee, United States attempts to give back to pigs the natural environment they deserve, This sanctuary takes more of a “hands-off” approach and allows hundreds of pigs to roam the 100 acres of land and forest freely.
It is magical and refreshing to see these creatures in such greenery, next to trees, and with so much free space.
This is the way every pig deserves to live.
Support pigs and their freedom by adopting a vegan lifestyle.
