Zebra Paperclip - The most bonkers snowboard photostream on Flickr

Ladies and gentlemen, please let me introduce you to the work of Chelsea Peterson aka Zebra Paperclip. It's an incredible combination of photography, arty titles, song lyrics and stream of consciousness writing. I've not edited any of the following....

i just want to be ok today

I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok today
I just want to be ok, be ok, be ok
I just want to be ok today

I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today
I just want to feel today, feel today, feel today
I just want to feel something today

Be Ok - Ingrid Michaelson

This is my
"I'm so depressed I'm resorting to the fetal position."

Why you might ask? What's that on the left side?

It's been 5 months without snow.
And it hurts. It hurts all over... uhh!!! I just want to go riding to bad. I finished out last season riding a brand new 2010 Burton Hero. It BEGS to go outside. Seriously. Everyday, it looks at me with this sad face and asks if we can drive somewhere cold and be together forever. And everyday, I have to break her little heart.

Soon enough, (hopefully mid-October) Tyrol Basin will open up for hiking and and put together a little park. Then we can shred like there is no tomorrow :D

Play dead.
Good boy.

No, that's not what happened.
I was on the floor (see fig. 1), and HabaƱero thought it was a good idea to join me for a good stretch. His adorableness gets me every time.


Got a Curse I Cannot Lift

Say say my playmate
wont you lay hands on me
mirror my malady
transfer my tragedy
Got a curse I cannot lift
shines when the sunset shifts
when the moon is round and full
gotta bust that box gotta gut that fish
My mind's aflame
We could jet in a stolen car
but I bet we wouldn't get too far
before the transformation takes
and bloodlust tanks and
crave gets slaked

Ok, taking a break from the color business. I loveee the themes, and I will continue with it later, there are just a few things I'm anxious to do now, rather than later.

Originally, today was going to be 'white' in my nice white dress, with other white stuff, but as I was attempting to set up, I saw my brand-spankin new board, freshly stickered, just sitting in the corner. Screw white, I want to jib! Now, it would have been much better if I had done this during the day when no one was home, because doing it at 11:30 at night, when everyone was sleeping was not such a great idea. I got about 7 or 8 shots like this in, before I crashed into the wall/window/blinds. It's loud. VERY loud.


My halo is broken now and I'm all that's left

Whoa, I'm losing hope
There's a hole in my heart
That's been cut out of stone
Whoa, cold comes cold goes
Could you fill this hole?
Cause I can't do it alone

The Coldest Heart - The Classic Crime

Hmmm... does it feel like a flashback? :]

Let's call it a late submission to my color series, and this time it's legit yellow! The last time I did 'green' it turned out yellow, but this time it's intentional. And I'm soooo excited to have done this, and I don't know what it is, but it just makes me happy.

fabulous.thanks :]

and drifting around on bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them

oh and i know this of myself
we've listened to more of life's end gong than the sound of life's sweet bells
was it ever worth it was there all that much to gain
well we knew we'd missed the boat and we'd already missed the plane
we didn't read the invite we just danced at our own wake
all our favorites were playing so we could shake shake shake shake shake
tiny curtains opened and we heard the tiny clap of little hands
a tiny man would tell a little joke and get a tiny laugh from all them folks
and drifting around on bubbles and thinking it was us that carried them
when we finally got it figured out that we'd truly missed the boat
Missed the Boat - Modest Mouse

I find it imperative to note these are my boyfriends snowboard pants, not mine. Anyway, my little toes are freezing, it's about 33 and flurrying today... and the chair is sitting on the hill. Almost fell twice. Totally worth it :] I suppose I'll give this Backyard & Umbrella thing a good try.

Check out the pink on black ♥

Dear Mother Nature . . .

You had all of your fun with this business you call 'summer'. I've waited 159+ days already, putting up with warm, humid, sunny, allergen filled weather. Rightfully, I believe it's my turn. So, Mother Nature, do me the favor and cancel fall. Let's cut the of the changing of the colors crap and get right to the white fluffy stuff. I need my fix, BAD.

Mmmkay? Glad we're on the same page.

Love Always,

I'm pretty sure this ones getting deleted.
For the moment I thought it went well with It's Insane How It Feels

She's a suicide blonde

Watched the planes landing from the roof
Of my treehouse in Burbank
I had that dream I was taking off
I brought my girl to keep me with it

Suicide Blonde - Jack's Mannequin

Oy, it's supposed to be green. (not intentionally yellow!!) More lime than I expected, but I'll take it. Take a look Here please.

It's the next addition to my (ready for the name?) Technicolor Chameleon Series. Haha, I like it! This set up was a PAIN, but I'm waiting for the 'ok I'm satisfied' feeling to set in. I haven't gotten that far yet. Everything is still siting out, waiting to be put back in it's proper place. Anddd Im kinda, sorta, really angry because I discovered an extremely large tear in these tights before I put them on. Oh well, perhaps I'm due to go shopping for tights tomorrow!

*angry face*

...and I present to you

365: The Rejects
Since I have zero time to start another year, and on a temporary hiatus from 52 weeks, I've started going through my folders of my original 365. I came across this one and just laughed. No pants I say, no pants!

This is Like a Flashback

I’m coming round and now my vision is so clear
If I could change my state of mind then I would disappear
The love I get from you is something I can’t chance
And I could let you slip away without a second glance

Flashback - Calvin Harris

4 months later...

This is one of two photos from my 365 project I had left to edit and upload. I was just putting this one off because it was 6 separate photos, and at the time I was taking them, the batteries in my flash were on the fritz and wouldn't keep a consistent output. Every photo from that shoot had different lighting, and because of that the motivation wasn't there, but now, I'm craving it! More and more I want to use my camera again, but I just had to do this first, and let me tell you, putting this up makes me feel like I've accomplished quite a bit!

This was back in October when I was feeling super anxious to get snowboarding, hence the pants. Yes, I have quite a few... and only one pair here doesn't actually belong to me, and are actually my boyfriends... *cough*pinkones*cough*.. haha ohhhh I'm so happy to be back on the snow, and back on Flickr too.

And on another note... Might start my Project 50? ie, 50 days with 50mm :D

Blue are the feelings that live inside me

I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the color of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my Corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I've been consumed. (by blue) view here puhleaze
Day 2 in the color series. I figured I would continue with it. I'm surprisingly happy with how this turned out! Once again, another shot in the bathroom, but it had blue walls so I couldn't resist! BTW, new icon. I don't think I like it yet : / Suggestions for a better one?

Blue has been
Thank you so much!!

Angle of Attack

I feel like a power ranger.

This would have been more effective if I had taken everything off of the counter. But the lazy Zebra didn't have that much motivation. Today was possibly the last day of snowboarding for this season. It's a rather depressing thought. Maybe tomorrow?

Sitting pretty :D

Bring me close to the edge, dare me to die

If I could sleep with eyes open I damn well will
Some people need a push I need a sleeping pill
I like to cut through bull shit with my mouth as a knife
I'd like to stick it to you 'cause it only feels right
Every drop is precious
Makes you want to cry
Bring me close to the edge dare me to die
Can't call it driven when you're driving
Easy to stay awake when your blood is boiling

We Sweat Blood - Danko Jones

Zebras gone wild.

Because of this shot, I'm sore today. My butt hurts, my back hurts, and my legs hurt too. I jumped, landed, and ran right back up the stairs 40 times for this. Oyee. I'm just really excited over my new snowboarding base layers. Obviously. And trust me, they are very warm and toasty. This is a little 'eh' for me, but it was fun anyway. It's super late and I've got to get to bed. Big day tomorrow!
