After a hot day biking up Mt. Tam in Sept. 2004, some interesting
salt formation on my shirt can be seen here
A couple Las Vegas items: Some Trash on the
Strip and a public service Billboard
as seen from my room at the Rio around 2002. From newyear's eve of 2005:
Place mat at the
Palms buffet. Guy drinking out of a gasoline
container. Blurry, but good idea of the amount of trash
on New Years there. A special
drink container for someone I'm sure is a real winner. Here's mobile
kegman. A nice assortment of trash.
Riot Horses. Very
classy town. Go once for new years. Then never again. It's worth it
just to see the scums being fools and sleazy chicks getting carried
off after passing out in the gutter.
From my new digital camera, check out my tourist
photos page of various San Francisco sites around where I live.
Excitement at a Grant Avenue laundromat
on my route to work!
Near New Orleans along the Mississippi, it's all chemical plants.
Here's a cemetary
that got in the way.
If I ever have a heart attack, I hope it's from eating this delicacy, Carne Asada Nachos (CAN) from the Miramar Robertos in San Diego. Here's the menu.
Compare that to the NorCal offerings with the filler rice and beans and
extra charges for guac. These prices have hardly gone up either, maybe
30 cents for each item. Or, I'll take the 5 pound Surf N' Turf Burrito from JV's Taco Shop filled with steak and giant shrimp. No, that isn't trick photography; it really is thicker than your arm.
Sent to me by Josh Roberts, the lowdown on the San Diego Bertos Lawsuit.
Here's a nice shrimp salad I made for myself that I was proud of.
Thanks to one of the greatest steak deals ever at Safeway, here's 2/3 of a $3.90 slab of uncooked bovine beauty (Bottom Round Cut). After cooking in my 1950 oven on Broil for about 7 minutes, right out of the oven, with some nice steam. A nice low shot of the inside after cutting in half. Another close
a bit higher, nice steam action. I had 3 10 oz. steak meals for $1.33
per serving. Seasoned with Lawry's seasoned salt and ground black
pepper prior to cooking. After cutting off the fat around the edges,
the cut really was very good and lean. For the price, I'd take it any
day over the premium cuts.
One of the reasons I like living in San Francisco: REALLY fresh chicken in case I'm not in the mood for Foster Farms' processing additives.
Two pictures my friend Tony sent me from his trip to Quebec. First one is one of the nastiest foods I never knew about called poutine, which he said was as disgusting as it looks. Second was a nice shot of a meat truck in some Chinatown there.
Some good lines for a favorite Good Times
episode where the dad graduates from trade school and looks to take
a job in Alaska. First part is JJ toasting the graduation.
I found this somewhere a while ago, and recommend
it highly to any Led Zeppelin fans for thier wallpaper.
When you cross the Mississippi River into Illinois at the fine city
of Chester, these sites
await you. Sadly, there is not a Popeye's Chicken to be found in
Check out this catfood ad, which I find funny, partly due to my enjoyment
of meat. Might make you think twice about falling asleep after running
out of Cat Chow.
You heard it here first, the striking similarity between Smashmouth's
the Sun" and The Doors' "When
the Music's Over" as evident in the opening of the two songs.
I want a piece of the lawsuit if it's ever filed.
From The Food Network's broadcast of a BBQ contest in Shreveport,
LA, some nice audio from a guy on the graveyard shift of tending to
the meat while his
Great dialog from
a scene in the movie "Truck
Turner" with a tour de force performance by the chick that
played Uhura in Star Trek preparing her hos for a big business meeting
with a group of pimps, then her proposing to sell her "stable"
of hos and asking them to kill Truck Turner for killing her husband,
Gator, then finally a nice presentation of the hos to the pimps. You
have to see to believe, but this audio is good on it's own. The
Theme Song to this film is also great. Starring Issac Hayes who
also does the music.
I can't resist a 0% APR or balance transfer deal or those free fishing
hats they give out for signing up for credit cards. Hence, here's a
look at my cache of credit
(all active at the time in 2005). I estimate I can retire to either
Bolivia or Guatamala should I ever decide to draw on all the lines and
flee the country. Current credit card number as of end of 2008 is
down to 15 cards, but the total limit is probably north of 150k due to
consolidation of lines.
List of the signs that bombard you in Little
Bubbles, the laundromat I patronize.
Here's the hold music of the conference call line at my previous employer that I enjoyed and wrote these lyrics for. Save the lyrics first for best enjoyment of the music to follow along.
