Saturday night....

Ben, I think it was either before you got here or after you left, but last thurs I invited you guys to see Charlie Parr this saturday night. Kris' co-worker (Jeff K...)puts on grass-roots basement shows. $10.00, byob, but he has amazing baked goods! Oh yeah, he lives four houses from you :).

in the cross-hairs...

If you have ever been in the veterans museum, there is a periscope. I held my camera up to it and came out with this. Sorry to get political.

Speaking of bugs...

A baja beetle is the coolest car you can drive on the road. I will attempt to offer proof of this with the following reasoning. Please check my math and let me know if I've made any errors:
Status symbols are not cool. Some cars may be cool other than their status value, but any percieved status value definitely hurts, not helps. The VW beetle was too cheap and common for far too long to ever be a status symbol.
A baja bug is both a historically important link to european rear-engined boxer design like Tatras and Porsches, and a specifically american style of customized vehicle at the same time.
It may have started as a well designed and interesting little hippy car--er, wait, nazi car. Whatever. With some modifications, herbie turns into a Steve McQueen-mobile. It's light enough to do real offroad with a little suspension lift, without being too high to take corners on the road at a sporting pace. The engines can be tuned to an extremely surprising degree, but will always sound like a cross between a kit plane and a vintage sports car engine--maybe for obvious reasons. A baja bug is pure machismo, sprung from the bud of flower power. Now tell me what's cooler and I believe I'll be able to refute.

All parts should go together without forcing. Therefore, if you can't get them together, there must be a reason. By all means, do not use a hammer. -IBM maintenance manual, 1925-

two seconds from suicide

nothing exciting, I'm just dying of cabin fever that's all. Don't even remember when I shot this, I think late summer, but the grass is green. Seems like a gazillion miles away.

Madtown to Houstown...

No pressure...only about 500 bones and you could probably find it cheaper. This weather should be enough to twist your arm a little too...

Speaking of shooting left handed...
