nice face dude

Beautiful! Look at the post, the second image really is a vast improvement, and I love it’s warmth, and his expression. It’s perfect. I like your face, dude. Not even kidding. That is a nice face. And your hair. K cool. (It’s a self portrait)

Could there be a more fitting title for a self-portrait post?

“Well I Wonder” is the title to a Smith’s song from “Meat is Murder”.  Over a darkly breezy tangle of acousitc guitars, tambourine, brushed drums, and rain effects, Morrissey’s voice floats with disjointed phrases of self-obsessed import like, “Well I wonder / if you hear me when I cry,” and, “Please keep me in mind.”

    Thanks – Gabriel Garbow

      I was also wondering about that at first! Haha, I can imagine, I had tried to edit it the first time to feature the finished version, and that’s when I found out how wordpress reblogs work.
      I’m glad for it! I’m showing it off after all, so I’m glad it’s been successful, hehe. Nice to know people really do click if you ask them too, so long as you’re enthusiastic about it~
      Thanks for visiting! 🙂 Still enjoying your blog! Hah!
