Friday! It is here! And I feel like breaking up the arctic winter monotony with a pop of color. Thanks to a slim window of opportunity, I have owned Bob Atwood’s record collection for about six years or so. The journalism magnate of Alaska was a huge music fan and loved folk music from all countries... and clearly was a Kingston Trio fan. So much Kingston Trio! Anyhow, this is not only one of the most beautiful albums in the bunch (it’s a neat little album) but it’s also clearly got the best cover. I’ll go more into this collection over time. #alaska #records #record #vinyl #history #statehood #bobatwood #atwood #1960s #1970s #1970 #itsalaska #chorale #folk #harrysimonechorale #elizabethfirestonewillis #cheez #cheesy #silly #parka #alaskasilly #psychedelic #throwback #retro #recordcover #pupper #kitsch #alaskaairlines

Barring any sudden silly instances that could come up between now and 10pm, I’ll be playing “Happy Trails” by Quicksilver Messenger Service in the second hour of @radio366 as part of our exploration of albums from 1969 this season. It feels right 💫 #quicksilvermessengerservice #quicksilver #1969 #rocknroll #rocknrollmusic #radio #radio366 #uaa #djwoweezowee #classic #psychedelic #psychedelicrock #psychrock #history #music #instamusic #instagood #capitol #garyduncan #davidfreiberg #johncipollina #gregelmore #alaska #alaskaradio

Quick plug for something important: @mayamagnet and colleagues have assembled something very important with @webreatheagain... if you get a chance to catch it in your neck of the woods, I highly recommend it. I first met Maya when I came to Alaska in 2003 and I’ve always admired her many talents and her drive to do the right thing. #alaska #alaskasuicide #suicide #sadness #depression #film #documentary #indigenous #storytelling #history #social #culture #healing #heal #north #northern #arctic #arcticsuicide #power #strength #help #helpingothers

I’m not excited. YOU’RE excited. First show of 2018, first time visiting @roselandpdx to see @thenightbeats and @brmcofficial ⚡️2/18/2018 (No Nikon tonight) PS, missing my Seattle show friends @jayeart and @jazophoto! #travel #pdx #portland #portlandoregon #oregon #roselandtheater #brmc #nightbeats #thenightbeats #rocknroll #rocknrollmusic #music #notinalaska #notinalaskaanymore #tonight #tonightinoregon

Looking up while waiting for the food. The DJ here is spinning rad tunes, so it’s cool. #lamp #red #dots #portland #oregon #iphone #travel #reunion #friends #brunch #food #light #iphonephotography #waiting #hungry #ladeeda

How things look pretty much all the time, you know. 🔆 Just silly stuff while chatting with my funny four-year-old, who is a little under the weather this week but still manages to crack me up every three seconds or so. It’s a nice way to spend the time on any day, even February 14th. Hope you get a chance to feel love and appreciation from your loved ones no matter what day of the year it is ♥️ If you’re reading this, I am 99% sure that I love and appreciate you, too 🙂 #video #psychedelic #psychedelicart #psych #psychart #videoart #futureeyes #selfie #spin #spinning #flashing #aquariusseason #newmoon #laughing #laugh #alaska #sickday #four #art #instaart #instagood #noglasses #valentinesday #february14 #love @futureeyes

Hi, Portland! On Friday I’m coming for all your weed. You’ve been warned. I’m excited to get together with friends for our yearly reunion🌟 Super pumped for @thenightbeats / @brmcofficial on Sunday night ⚡️ 2018 has been too quiet. PS, feel free to drop me a line if you want a tarot read on Monday afternoon in the downtown area. #portland #oregon #pnw #travel #winterblues #winter #pdx #nightbeats #brmc #getout #goofoff #goof #friends #jacknicholson #theshining #winterisweird #cabinfever

Today (Saturday), this afternoon/evening/night I’m feeling tarot sessions. *Discounted* tarot sessions. I’ve got a few slots left, and one of them could be yours! DM me or text me if you have my number. (You can even pick the deck.) In AK? Let’s meet up over tea. Not in AK? Let’s Skype or FaceTime (tea optional). Never had a tarot read? I promise it doesn’t hurt 😁 #tarot #alaska #astrology #aquariusseason #saturday #aquarius #pisces #aries #taurus #cancer #leo #virgo #libra #scorpio #sagittarius #capricorn #anchorage #girdwood #kenai #wasilla #positive #vibes #instagood #selfie #finger #tattoo #tarotreader #cards #pullingcards #letshavefun

Still taking an Instagram break, but I felt that this wisdom from @gottesss regarding the current state of the moon was lovely, worth sharing, and timely (for me) considering the things going on in my personal life. Especially that last graf. My take... Hug your closest friends and family who help you feel genuinely supported and nurtured. Strengthen your relationship with yourself by practicing compassion toward yourself and perceive your weaknesses as strengths that just backfire a little sometimes... or as I like to call them, “strengths in reverse.” In my personal experience... things change in your life the moment you clear away the negative perceptions of yourself that have been piled on that you don’t need. Treat yourself like your own cherished friend, and your entire self will be better off for it. Super thanks to the supportive and kind people who I’ve met over time. I really appreciate you. Especially if I have been fortunate enough to become your friend. Anyway, I hope this can help a little, if you’ve got things on your mind. Thanks for letting me interrupt your day for a moment. 🌟 #manymoons #astrology #meditate #think #kindness #compassion #wisdom #thehardway #theeasierway #friendship #scorpio #springcleaning #drama #relationships #mooninscorpio #relevant #instagood #life #headspace #alaska #winter

Progress. Not great, but still fun. I’m taking an Instagram break, but not for too long ✌️ I want to focus on commissions and make a lot of other things, too. #collage #analog #analogcollage #cut #cutandpaste #xacto #xactoknife #tape #collageart #surreal #surrealist #silly #wip #try #practice #instagood #timeout #winter #alaska #somemistakes!

Stumbled upon a fun surprise today. @mmimsy @mmimsymade and I were hanging out at the end of last year with coffee and tea and art and I had my @futureeyes with me and handed it to her for a few seconds and voila.

I’m starting to regret my vow to draw faces on dicks re: Alaska legislators who harm women. This is becoming boring and repetitive. UPDATE: this is the last one. I’m tired of doing these, yet also not as tired as I am of hearing about this stuff. But I’m done with these. I’ve gotten my point across, and the information is getting to the public. But most of all, I just don’t want to look at these people’s faces anymore. Go read the story about Zach Fansler, House Rep from District 38. Not even going to get into it here, because, well, you need to read it for yourself. This happened even as the current House Majority is revamping their training on sexual harassment. This happened even though Fansler is a Democrat, and has advocated for women in his career; wolf in sheep’s clothing, all that jazz. Also, Fansler has criticized Republican David Eastman for his ugly and derisive remarks toward women—so why is it that Fansler feels that he is somehow in a position to criticize someone who also doesn’t respect women? Sorry, Fansler... pretending to care is just that: pretending. I worked for a mostly-GOP Majority that was pretty lousy at handling abuse. (By the way, it was no secret that former legislator Bill Stoltze screamed at people and most of us were instructed to avoid him or just take the abuse instead of irate him further. While I may not agree with all of Rep. Tammie Wilson’s conclusions, there’s no reason to doubt that she experienced abusive behavior from Stoltze.) But I’m just as unimpressed with that House Majority’s effectiveness in dealing with and setting standards for members as I am with the current one. I hope the legislators and staff who are at risk of performing this kind of behavior begin to realize that things are changing for the better, and that they need to change, too. #art #digitalart #alaska #alaskademocrat #democrat #representativezachfansler #zachfansler #alaskapolitics #politicalportrait #abusive #unacceptable #standupforwomen #artprotest #penis #dick #apologize #protectwomen #instaart #standup #dickart #protest #sexualharassment #stopsexualharassment #bethel #juneau #akleg

I’m late to the collage game, but I thought it would be fun to try my hand at it after being inspired by a number of talented artists here on Insta, and my sister-in-law @paigerspeb! First attempts today after sorting through some old editions of @natgeo with an X-acto knife. Can’t wait to do more 😍 They’re just first attempts, and I hope to get better at this. #nationalgeographic #1959 #1971 #1991 #collage #analog #analogcollage #collageart #art #surreal #surrealist #advertising #xacto #xactoknife #blackandwhite #color #psychedelic #psychedelicart #practice #firsttime #cutandpaste #tape #sunday

Spending time with some vintage @natgeo magazines today. I snipped the poetry from the side of a General Dynamics ad from the July 1959 edition and stuck it on the art... because why not. #vintage #nationalgeographic #generaldynamics #war #warmachine #aerospace #defense #militaryindustrialcomplex #advertising #classicadvertising #retro #retroad #1959 #50s #magazine #technology #poetry #submarine #throwback #retroadvertising #cut #paper #sundayfunday #art

Pebble Mine is so toxic that not even the Trump administration could justify overturning restrictions on its implementation. I was one of many who benefitted from education demonstrating that that this is not a safe project, and that the short-term jobs weren’t worth the long-term employment opportunities in fishing or disrupting the balance of life that supports the finest salmon fishery in the world. I’m thinking of @apayoart and all the other people who have worked hard to protect their home so that they create the best futures for their kids. Hopefully the rest of the process pans out in their favor... but this is a shockingly positive development.
