golden tymes pt. 2

back in the van!
off to the olde country to pitch a tent next to a pond
stop it don't stop it
a band, a baby, a butt
chris said he saw a bear but all i saw was evidence of massive chilling
we made fast friends
conspiracies abounded. these two were the reason for the season. linda (on who's land i slept) and juliette (on who's land we raged)
then i started to feel like a hippie in a good way
jump in the fire!
hot pink
morning slugs in the shoes.
linda's tree house steps, in the flesh!
just some dudes, no big deal
then we drove home and i fell in love with a dolphin
and i got heckled by some teenage creeps for taking a picture of a rainbow. all in all: awesome times, awesome folks, and awesome feelings all at once.

golden tymes pt. 1

went to ohio to pick up ole chris.
we were heading out on long weekend of listening to old metallica tapes and driving to the woods.
pack it up, pack it in: let (us) begin.

but first: some rest stop pilates

side trip to braddock, pa to visit the other man in the van and all around talented and inspirational go-getter: bill daniel
ended up walking down by the tracks on our way to an old abandoned hydro-electric power plant

slip through the cracks

the power of PA

just climbing around on giant propellors: no big whoop

it appears we are not the first to have been brought here by mr. daniel

investigations into the underbelly

shop talk

don't forget your good ideas

manager's office.
braddock is a place to go right now. maybe a mini-detroit in the sense that there's hardly anybody left and there's lots of empty buildings to get into and make good.

i'm a big fan of bill's houseboat pictures. i bought one as big as my couch. no joke.

bill showed us big pictures of piles and carnage.

then we saw the real deal.

piles of styles

moments of magic
after the pink pile and a bowl of beans we scooted.
more to come in part two.

life and tymes

i'm off for the weekend for brain relaxation and old-tyme bro-tyme.
i'll leave you with another look at the mural sign thing over at juice in the mission.
photos by andrew paynter.
this is up for another week or two, then it will go to a school, a bro's storage space, or maybe you want to buy it for a million dollars.
life gets better!


julius made an unwilling friend and then let him escape. it's the friendly laws of nature.

anyone who goes to deitch in new york and gets me one of these posters and mails it to me, i will send you back a drawing that you will like. i love penguin/pelican paperbacks. i love scary art installations. i love posters. i saw this installation in marfa and it was really upsetting in an interesting and unsettling way. or a version of it. or maybe it was just some shack i stumbled into. anyway: let's make a deal.
