Luther Tower

One of my favorite phone-camera shots yet… I was almost happy my DSLR battery died. Still, keep those batteries fully charged, people (and by people I mean… you know… me).

Scout Master Ward (of Mr. Bishop’s bruises): “What happened to him?”

Becky: “I’m not sure. I think he went searching in the dark.”

Mr. Bishop: “She stole the batteries out of my flashlight.”

Gone To Seed

I’m really going to miss all these metal plates in the attic of our store… they made killer backgrounds. This one even looks like it’s got some abstracted cloud formation stuff going on along the bottom – and that circle at the top looks almost sun or moon-like. The rest is just details. Grassy, grassy details.

Carl: I invented my own kind of grass, too. Did you know that? Look at this. This is registered – Carl Spackler’s Bent.
Ty: I’ve felt grass like this before. I’ve played on this stuff.
Carl: This is a hybrid. This is a cross bluegrass, Kentucky bluegrass, featherbed bent, and northern California sinsemilla. The amazing stuff about this is that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt at night on this stuff. I’ve got pounds of this stuff…
