wood x's

BK was out chopping wood at Brad's house and came across a log that was too (too too) good to chop into pieces. So we worked with it for some photos. Taken 6.03.09

I guess Tay Tay found it and thought he was the first to have discovered it - but that was a grave error on his part. Very grave.

(These posts are not in order from when they actually happened. They are in the order of when I choose to post them.)

Photo Contest

This is my first entry in the PDI (workplace) monthly photo contest.
Each person involved had to provide three ideas for the theme which was then drawn by a neutral party.
The theme to this one was "Livin' the Dream".
It was my idea.

PS I got 2nd place out of 7.
Don Crossman won with a photo which I will have to get from him and post here^

It isn't perfectly what I had in my mind-but it's a start.
I was thinking about the posters from Star Wars
and also the DVD covers from The Venture Bros.

try to find my beard in the photo!

The next contest is tomorrow! I forgot until tonight
but I have something up my short sleeve.

some people like beards-and grow them. they are half-ass.
I like bushes (beards, you pervs) and am trying to grow one.
it's not going to look like a beard for a while though.
So i will look like just another half-asser.

P e a c e.

Wed dun pitchers

Today I decided to put images that Dan Ciskey took of me while we shot a Wedding.

Here I am trusting my camera in the hands of an infant.

Here I am influencing the Bride.

Here I am not trusting the infant with my camera anymore.

Like my Tie?

Here are the shots the infant took:
this one is burned 300% in my face.

this one is the original untouched infantile-taken photo:

Have I decided to quit smoking?
I do not know.

Yesterday, I said I quit, but then proceded to smoke butts from an ash-tray
to subside my fix.
Today I feel like doing the same thing, but maybe without the disease all over the filter.
Which means I am seriously considering buying a whole fucking carton of my favorite "Camel Lights".
What a fucked-up addiction this is!
or maybe I am fucked up!
(a little bit o both please).

What a World!

There, there.
Now, now.

¡4rth o ju£y©™®

this is my fourth of juki-july on the actual day.

This is what I look like after shooting 1,463 photos.

(a few hours have elapsed since + a shower)

I wonder how many of them will be good
and how many will be amazing?

I even wonder if 1,463 will be a big number to me
as I continue to do this...

ah digital...
fuck it.

everybody else is doing it.

Things to get for party: drinks, snacks, toilets
AURORA | Suburb might make hosts rent porta-potties

June 23, 2007
Lawns in Aurora still are used as outdoor restrooms months after public urination was outlawed.
While some aldermen in the far west suburb said the incidence has dropped to a trickle since the practice was outlawed, one aldermen says she constantly receives complaints about partygoers urinating in public.

"I receive calls every single weekend," said Ald. Juany Garza.

The city council adopted a public urination and defecation ban last December. But Garza said she called Aurora police about two weeks ago, at 4:30 a.m., because she received three calls at home from neighbors about partygoers urinating outside.

"Next to my house last year every single weekend, they have a party. The people don't rent a portable toilet," said Garza, whose ward covers the near east side, downtown and part of the near west side. "When they start drinking they start going pee all over . . . they have no respect."

Garza and Ald. Scheketa Hart-Burns have teamed to explore whether the city may require residents hosting large parties to rent portable toilets.

"We probably need a few weeks to really look if other communities have enacted something similar, and see what remedies there might be under the law," city spokesman Carie Ann Ergo said.

too bad gasoline is on its way out.

Monday, June 18, 2007


this is how i sometimes feel
when i am overcome by the DARK SIDE.
like my head is gonna explode and my eye is gonna smoke.

I couldn't find this image anywhere on google.
so i had to take matters into my own hands and pop in the old VHS.

Yes, it is time for the old break-dancing photos I borrowed from Wolf Camera whence I once worked (in this case, I stole them).
I was looking through the trash (as I usually did) and found these 3x5's of a junior high dance and saw some kid on the dirty-ass Jefferson gym floor.
Lo-and-Behold, it was Dexter, younger brother of Luis Torres, a skater and musician friend from High School.
Dexter also skated and played music, that's how I knew-est him.
I think I was in a band with him and Luis and Anthony once also,
but they said I never called them afterwards so it was my fault we dis-banded...
Good Times.
Good Times.
I guess he could break-dance, which I didn't know until I stumbled through the garbage,
but I always learned truth from garbage-picking.
Garbage-Picking: an ancient truth revealer.
Lesson Learnt.

So I had to go to my storage space and search through all my photo shit
'cause some fucking kid I don't ever remember meeting pushed me to find them.
(of course I wanted to also, otherwise I'd say "fuck you buddy")
but thanks fucking kid I don't ever remember meeting,
'cause you made me to relinquish my memories of olden.

oh internet, what will you bring upon me next?
