Sweet September summer

I wonder if we'll have our own local knock-off version:

Kansas City
sweet October fall
Apocalypse comes now
Or not at all

Great picture, Dunstan. :)

August 2004

Beautiful picture, Dunstan. It reminds me of "Jonathan Livingston Seagull," that inspirational hippie book from the early 70s.

Version 2

From the weather drop-downs to the linked dates, the new format is more navigable than ever. Nicely done, Dunstan! By the way, my significant other is a programmer, and I can attest to the patience…

Barbequing with the rich and famous

"Have I been to extreme just right now? Why are Americans not tought in school that there are worlds just like theirs off their coasts?"

Spelling issues aside, these kinds of blanket statements…

At Safeway deli counter, part two

One wonders how they decide what to recommend. Do they have lists of complementary foods that the employees have to memorize?

"Quick, Employee #1, what do you recommend when the customer orders…

Saucer of milk for table three

Seems to me that Guys # 2 and 3 were just jealous because THEY didn't have a guy who could perform an entire puppet show with his ass.

When you find someone with a skill like that, you hold on…

Dance like nobody’s watching

I second Lee's comment. We spend way too much time worrying about what other people think of us. Here's another good one: "Exuberance is beauty."—William Blake

Two favourite posts

Mine: "The Only Thing That Scares Me Is Cow-ser Soze"…

Someone else: "I Think Things!"…

Cool photo, Max.

Trip 1: itinerary

Must be nice to be a man of leisure, traveling the globe with a camera in your hand and David Carradine in your heart. :)

Tidying up

Stunning pictures, as usual, Dunstan. I love the pigeon in Paris one (perfectly framed), and the graffiti was quite charming. One time my cousin Paul (who has very long, girlie hair) was kissing…

A pair for every day of the week

Question is, did she have rock and paper, too?

Retro: Adventures on Speedway Boulevard

I've never had a po-boy. There's just something so sad and Dickensian about the name, like it's made of little workhouse orphans or something. (Soylent Green is made of orphans!)

Nicole and…

My old coffeeshop used to be frequented by patients from a nearby mental hospital. One of them believed John Denver was the messiah.

Is there a British equivalent to Waffle House, I wonder?…

[view in situ]

I'll concede that Waffle House has its own charm. Each one seems to have a waitress named Flo, who a) has fabulous beehived hair secured with AquaNet; b) calls you "honey" while smacking her gum;…

Ha! Public transportation is definitely the best place to encounter eccentric and/or felonious people. Of course, the second-best place is the International House of Pancakes, where a bus driver…

Retro: Arizona poems (in jest)

A Response (also in jest):

I bristle at my country's notoriety;
We're not all of the "freedom fries" variety

Flexible floats

You always have our aesthetic interests at heart, don't you? Looks great, and thanks for including American Psycho. I find myself having to defend this brilliant book (and movie!) more often than…

Putting your underwear on backwards: the Results

Well done, Dunstan. You've clinched the Nobel Peace Prize for sure. After all, people tend to be at their most bellicose when their nether regions are oppressed.

Retro: Everyone likes Cox

Springfield, Missouri is home to the imposing Cox Medical Center, the motto of which is "no one knows you better."

Retro: There ain’t no water in that there river

I've got to agree—you certainly have a natural flair for storytelling.

Jim reminds me of a ragged-looking fellow I met on a Greyhound bus from Springfield to Topeka a few years back. Dennis…

Bring Poppy along and you'll be all set. The English + puppy combination is a lethal one, I hear. :)

Per Dunstan's 20th year:
Funny, pretending to be English tends to accomplish the same thing in America.

Sort of looks like Jon (#7) is being transfigured into a Hindu deity.

Pickled Peppers

Wherefore the Post-modern preoccupation with pungent plants of the pepper persuasion?

Poppies everywhere

I, for one, figured out about clicking on the photo for a larger version. But then, I click on anything with a pulse.

Amazing photo! What kind of camera do you use? My husband's been trying to…

Grrr, hear me roar

The growling lion is priceless. Sort of reminds me of Sid Vicious.
