Antioch 2009: Day 3

Brace yourselves: I took a lot of pictures today (and today ain't over yet). <--- written yesterday


I bought a new ring last night at Import House. I tried to get a decent picture of it this morning but I kinda feel like I failed.








I also got a pair of hamsa earrings at Ohio Silver. I love hamsas to begin with, but something about these made me think of Frida Kahlo's favorite pair of hand earrings










Speaking of hamsas, can anyone tell me what this one means? My friend Tuvi gave it to me about a million years ago. I know the letters are "Tsmarcad," but I don't know what they mean. aaronbenedict was supposed to ask someone for me but, well, yea.










Hibiscus






Antioch University -- Boo! Hiss!


The Photo House


We always used the back door

South Hall


Library graffiti. I took lots of pictures of the graffiti on the basement study desks. It was like an archaeological find -- cave drawings of a sort.










Random large hole in the ceiling




Such perfect library graffiti


It was Scott Sanders who originally pointed these out to me. They marked one of the smoking/no smoking lines back when there were still smoking areas inside the library. People were still allowed to smoke in there as recently as my first year of college.


The ashtray is still there too.




I apologize that this one is so hard to read, because I thought it was hilarious. The top entry begins "Angst, Beavis, Angst! Argh!.." and the lower entry responds "Bummer for you! Can I have your tuition?"




"For a more useful and efficient library"








This was the seriously anti-Gerry Bello desk






Hippie backlash






Omnivore/herbivore argument desk




Have I mentioned how much I love Antioch graffiti?








Posted for the Joe Cali reference


Ah, Weaver's

Ah, Div (ah, alcoholism)

Boxes of books that (I believe) Joe Cali saved from the flood


People still know this song?


Hard to see, even in close up:


"Yay for mice"


It's stuff like this that reminds me of what a great place Antioch is to be when you're heartbroken. There's understanding and respect for the depth of emotion. It's like the whole place is here to comfort you. I know I'm not describing it right, but I feel it, and always have.




demonfire. Finally!

John or Jonathan's tree, I forget which


The spot where the memorial used to be. It succumbed to the elements about 5 years ago. if folks ever want to rebuild, or build something else on that spot, I can still direct everyone to where it was.


This is all that remains of the memorial
