Mark Ryden

I heard about Mark Ryden in high school when I thought I was cool for reading Juxtapoz. Well, I wasn't. But he does have an uncanny resemblance to my former drawing teacher.

math is hard, lets go shopping

For some reason, I always ripped the heads off my Barbies and colored-in their "underwear" with markers.

Times like this, I wish all i had to worry about was what Barbie I want for my next birthday or holiday but like many people my age, I can't. So many things are changing, really fast, and relaxing and "killing time" isn't really productive.........well, to some people. When I heard that one of the talking Barbies once said (and I quote) "Math is hard, lets go shopping!", not only did I think this was hilarious, obscene, and fucking hilarious, i thought about how bad I wanted to live that life again. Im getting very little from being as productive as I am. I am becoming grumpy, cynical, and always complaining about something. Good thing I catch myself doing these things or no one would ever want to be around me. I have gotten only some satisfaction from the things I have accomplished this summer (aka Biggie Smalls) but taking summer classes and working has proven to be just a time suck. I spend the little money I make at work on happy hour and don't really mind that because I sure as hell like my vodka tonics and baskets of popcorn, and the time with friends I spend while doing it. Barbie had such a positive attitude towards life, but so would I if some magical person could build me a hot pink mansion with a super futuristic key card to get into my own house! I can see how I am resenting Barbie right now, but then again, that doll was made to give girls a chance. A chance to think that when you are an adult you can have it all, just like Barbie. If you want to win the 1998 Women's World Cup.......YOU CAN! If you want to be a doctor......YOU CAN! If you want to have a husband with plastic hair and amazing pectorals.......YOU CAN! But no one ever tells you how Barbie got all those things, and thats the surprise all those little girls will have to figure out on their own. As for now, my best bet is to continue to listen to Barbie Girl, get through this (pretty eventfull) summer, and try and cheer up.
