TRISTAN came to visit last weekend from portland- what a treat! we met when i was just 17, home for the summer working at the bourgeois pig cafe, listening to neutral milk hotel tapes in the kitchen. since then we've had the pleasure of each other's company in chicago, portland, and now san francisco! up in portland, tristan stays busy with various projects, including working at the sapphire hotel and making cameo appearances in viral typeface/lady gaga videos. besides having the rare talent of being able to make everyone laugh, he also consistently maintains a genuine, friendly, disposition and a general love and passion for life and all of its curiosities. he always reminds me to be proud of what i've done, what i'm doing, and what i'm going to do next. i can't remember a better weekend i've had dancing, singing, exploring, pondering life, riding bikes all over the city....
