I had breakfast with superstar comedian/actor Mary Elaine Ramsey this morning. She only had orange juice and then dragged me to Astro Burger across the street so she could have a Diet Coke. I made her take photos in front of all her favorite spots in West Hollywood. Hope you had as great as a weekend as Mary Elaine does in this series.
A self portrait of myself
I do not believe that saying something half full or half empty makes you an optimist or a pessimist. Any time I’m explaining capacity of some sorts to anyone, I always have to remind myself to say half full, or near full, and never using the word empty, because I think it’ll make me seem like a pessimist. Today, I realize how annoying that is and I disagree with whoever made that up, and for all the lost time I have to rethink about that damn logic. Here’s a beach I visited once. It’s near-empty if people but voluptuous with the stunnin.
A photo I took last year. I find that photographers usually post a dark and moody photograph like this and then write a paragraph about goals in the darkness. You will not find inspirational paragraphs like that here, at @IzakR.

Congrats on your window display for #LCDQlegends2019 @nicolegordonstudio. Sorry I’m legitimately blocking it from view but I look like I’ve been on a cleanse so 🤷🏻♂️
Here is a photo of me trying to cool down next to an ice machine while Slater patiently waits for me to chill the f out.

May your sister and her boyfriend haunt you the way mine haunt me.
My mind is blank so no caption for this at the moment. Check back soon.

Happy New Year from the mountains. May your year have valleys of opportunities ahead. (Visual metaphor moment alert 🚨) BTW have you ever hiked in snow before? It’s freezing if you wear Vans. 📸 @slaterferg
Hey bro. It’s your birthday but I won’t make a big deal about it because we don’t like big deals even though we are huge deals makin big deal$. I enjoy our time together most of the time. I made a tiny slideshow of photos I’ve taken of you and photos of us together. I made sure to put the good ones. I was tempted to do a slideshow of all the photos we hate, but I’ll save that for your 50th birthday. I’m currently in London. Where are you? I know where you are, but lmk if you want to grab a drink tonight. We have traveled to 5 states, and 5 countries together, and I had a great time with you in 9 out of these 10 spots. Thanks for being a good pal and for not eating all your dinner so I get to eat the leftovers. Happy birthday Ash @ashleybenson
paragraph caption 🚨. ‘ello to you. I hope you’re great today. If not, I hope you become great later on today! I bring you this photograph I took of @slaterferg, on this very Wednesday, to say Happy Birthday. I feel like everyone should wish him a happy birthday as well. For those wanting to know what foods Slater dislikes, he dislikes mushrooms, tomatoes occasionally, and a lot of shellfish. He loves sour patch kids, VERY MUCH. @sourpatchkids (sponsor us already cmon) Talk soon y’all. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SLATER (if you’ve reached the end of this and you like sour patch kids (not an #ad) lmk with a 🍍
Paragraph caption alert. Paragraph caption alert. I’m adding “paragraph caption alert” to the beginning of my paragraph captions in case someone does not want to read the paragraph. I wish most people would do this, because it’s considerate. How are you? I’m fine thank you. Now— this is RHU. I am holding her. She is happy about it. She’s a rescue. We rescued her from a meth house apparently. This is why I like rescue dogs. I used to have four cats when I was a kid. My parents told me they had to go to storage when we moved. I later learned another family adopted them and only realized in college that cats don’t go to storage. It’s so weird seeing people I haven’t seen in 10+ years. They look like the 30 year old version of the version I have of them in my memories. One last thing, if you’re going to send me a mass email, put me on BCC please. Lastly, my friend Haley @haleypharo took this photo of me and Rhu. ** if you made it to the end please add a 🥖 so I know I’m not talking to myself. Also I’m v into bread right now. Ta. Ta.
On Wednesday’s we wear pink. Saturday doc martins.
So it seems the paragraph caption is popular. I didn’t realize people loved to read. I usually scroll through Instagram, just like I’m scrolling through this fake neighborhood. Some photos I like. Some I scroll by. I just realized when I wrote “scroll,” as in through a park, I meant “stroll.” Shoot. I’m currently on a research trip, not a pleasure trip (I can assure you that) with my business partner @ashleybenson. President Benson actually took this photo. I made her take 9. I’m teaching her how to take better photos. She’ll get there maybe. I had another omelet for breakfast! I’m sure you were wondering what has been sustaining this beautiful bod of mine (no photos please). I almost forgot to mention—, a friend and I at breakfast realized we appreciate how different Tapatío and Cholula taste. I’m still unsure on this paragraph caption technique, so please write 🦔 or 🐸 in the comments section if I should continue. Thank you and good day.
I’ve been noticing that a lot of people write a four paragraph caption. If I remember correctly, captions are one liners. However, I decided to try the essay paragraph. What’s everyone up to today? Sweet. I just ate an omelet for breakfast. No dairy of course, trying to keep the pounds down. I worked out earlier this morning. I broke a sweat. It was nice. Here is a photo of @slaterferg relaxing on a pool raft when we were in Mexico for @haleypharo and @salmaida4 wedding. Slater seems to be enjoying this position. I waited until the pool raft was perfectly centered and parallel with me and my iPhone. Anywho, I’m excited for today. Have some editing I need to do, plus I get to hang out with my dog. We think she is an absent mother, as her undercarriage indicates she had children. Furthermore, please leave a 🐊 if you read until the end. If there are enough, I’ll write more essays. Ciao.

I interrupted her, she says.
How often do you take the weekend off? If you know you’re not going to be able to vote Tuesday because you’re out of town or unavailable, get on that absentee ballot!!!

This summer, I directed the music video for MKTO’s ( @wearemkto) return with their single “How Can I Forget.” The guys, Malcolm ( @therealmalcolm) and Tony ( @followoller), were so easy to work with, and so was their team.

I don’t normally get down with the paranormal or spirits per say, however, I was truly blown out of my seat by my session with @jonathanmarkmedium a Psychic-Medium. I went into the session thinking “what the hell am I walking into....” and almost fell off my chair with what was going on. I highly recommend @jonathanmarkmedium. I don’t know what else to say I’m kinda speechless. Thanks @cassiescerbo for the intro !
Here’s a casual photo for ya

My airplane window was trippy. . . . . I’m seeing a ton of people starting to write paragraphs for captions, about inspiration, wisdom, travel, and life. That’s all.
