I could have taken a more interesting and dynamic image of this small artillery piece, but out of respect for my more extreme left-leaning visitors I decided to present this version.
The sign reminds those unfriendly towards firearms to proceed with caution lest they accidentally enjoy themselves when something cool like this goes off.

Highjacked Vacation Photos

A relatively new hobby of mine is to steal other people's
vacation snapshots.
When the latest wing of the Alamo was recently opened
there were hundreds of tourists and locals on hand,
with their cameras, capturing memories with the help
of all the actors in period costumes roaming the grounds.
Here, I caught a different angle on the photo some guy
is showing to his family and friends of 'Mrs. Some Guy'
posing with a real gosh-darn Indian.
As seen in the background, I'm not the only one who
is fascinated by the photos other people take.

Is This Wrong?

It's finally fall here in South Texas, so raking
and blowing and bagging leaves is part of every
homeowner's weekly ritual.
We already felt that the lawn and leaf bags that
look like jack-o-lanterns were stupid, but this takes
stupidity to a whole new level.
Do your religious beliefs include having your Savior's
name on trash bags just so you can leave them on your
lawn to "spread the word"? Is this really a good idea?
I wonder what Jesus would have to say about this.
Personally, I would be pissed off but then of course
I would have no choice but to forgive the poor misguided
souls who participated in every phase of this endeavour,
from coming up with the idea to marketing, selling and
buying these horrible and insulting abominations.
Hopefully, I'll be forgiven, too.
After all, I'm being an angry dick towards my fellow man
and condemning them in public when I really don't have
the right to do so.
Does any of this fall into the category of taking
the Lord's name in vain?

(I'll have you know that this was the single most
difficult post I have ever made. Your comments are needed
to help me figure things out.)

Pretentious PhotoBloggers

There are a TON of photoblogs
on the internet, and some are pretty good.
And some are pretentious as hell, which makes me sick.
They refuse to caption or even title their photos, so
you have no earthly idea where they took it or what the hell
you're even looking at.
To them, this helps elevate their work to ART.
"I want my work to stand on it's own, without the crutch
of using words."
Well, I say that's crap, and that these "photographers"
are all ego and style with zero substance.
Just zooming way in and/or cropping out all identifiable
features doesn't make it art either, unless the composition,
subject matter, technique, and editing makes it so.
So get over yourselves, and type a few words about your
photos, you pretentious bastards!

A Good Home

When I saw that this puppy was reading the
Real Estate section of the Sunday newspaper,
I knew that he was a real go-getter who would
manage to find a good home.

Like over a hundred of his fellow dogs, many of whom
were brought to San Antonio by the Humane Society
after the hurricanes, he was adopted this day.

Free Expression

Bumper stickers are one of the few outlets for
free speech that haven't been ruined by
political correctness.
But that doesn't make what people put on their
vehicles any more valid than the stupid things
they say everywhere else.
Case in point:

Gangbangers, Thugs & Punkasses

We all despise them, right?
Be honest.

This should warm your heart, seeing them in cuffs
after being busted on a joyride in what was most
likely a stolen car.
They're putting up a tough front now, but the crying
will start soon after lights-out at the jail.
Take it like a man, bitches.

Zzakk's Garage On Halloween

There was a ghoul in the garage.
Go ahead, ask him if you can borrow tools.
I dare you.
