it's sunday, i'm chilling!  bout to go to the pool/gym.  but before then...

i'm in love with the cole haan alisa oxfords!  which color i'm unsure!  i loooooove!

it's shocking that i watched the artist for the first time last nite, considering i'd been meaning to & wanting to see it for so very long.  i loved it.  i love this scene below especially--& how he walks in on her in this moment...

Classes are underway at the U.  My three classes tomorrow will start the long conversation of what critical thinking analysis means?--what does it mean to be the sole critic of all you read thus write? / (write with authority!!)--so tomorrow we're viewing/breaking down/talking about/& in turn analyzing what this 90s gem below is all about:

Beck - Loser from Alvaro Molina on Vimeo.

If you can be the sole critic & analyze BECK, then what the heck, a lil literature is nothing....right?

Anyways we're gonna have some fun.  What the heck does this song mean?

Gabby D / I'm on Arroyo Chico this week / oh yeh, I'm also at the beach working on my tan / also, just sent off next chap to its new home, hopefully / WORK!

If you head on over to - I'm the spotlight on Arroyo Chico this week.  This means local Tucson writers, or writers visiting, reading in a wash near Josh Wilkinson's home in the deep night.  A whole slew of us went a couple months ago.  DR DD went with me.  My most fav moment is at the beginning when you see Danielle holding the lantern.  Thanks, JMW.  

My friend Samuel Ace is on THE PLEISTOCENE, so head on over to to check it all out.

I heart you, Gabby.  So proud of this girl!
