Badges?

"We don't need no stinking badges!"

This scene screamed Blazing Saddles to me, or was it Goin' South?
Actually, I think it was both.

"Jewerly" Repair

I love flea markets, even when I don't buy anything.

Logan Farts



I'm testing a video host that has a superior operating system to fucking YouTube.
Daily Motion works well in my browser, with the videos maintaining perfect audio-synch unlike those other guys.
Downloading seems faster, and actually shows up on my status toolbar so I know exactly what's going on.


I can see it, can you? Success!
This video was shot using my Sony F717. It's remains a great still-camera but the limitations of 2002-era digital video are obvious.

French Stump

Special thanks to my brother, the other Zzakk, for finding this and taking me to it for the photo.

Why is it a French Stump?
Please leave your answer in the comments.

"Easter Bunnies Pictures"

There's so much wrong with this I'm afraid to start.
Captive rabbits next to a busy street, breathing exhaust fumes all day? I took this out the passenger window of my brother's truck, stopped at a redlight, sending our own burnt hydrocarbon bouquet into the bunny cage. Sowwy, wabbits!

The wheels are coming off the wagon, so that's a nice safety issue to think about.
When you prop your toddler in the wagon's seat, do they move the signs and awning so they're out of the frame?
Do you have to take your own pictures or is there a photographer on duty, and what does that job pay?

And the background, behind the wagon....oh just forget it.
I'm too tired to give this bullshit operation the thrashing it deserves.

Fiesta is about to start, and I plan to catch a ton of stupidity this year.
Maybe even go to a parade!

Party Girls

Click to enlarge (just a reminder)
It's getting late, the band is kicking, the drinks are flowing...and some girls haven't received enough attention to suit their egos.
The easy solution is to dance on the bar!
It's a proven way to get free shots and maybe meet someone who's interested in your personality and brains.


This one has so much going on, I don't know where to start.
First, it was all the way across a smoky bar, so my puny pop-up flash barely got the job done. 45% of the smoke was mine, BTW.

I love the laughing Brian Epstein-type lower right.
The hipster across the way looks like he's about to lick an entire thigh.
Wish him luck or a bloody nose--your choice.

When I first saw this shot at home that night the caption on the TV cracked me up.
Synchronicity.

Just Build Around It

A tree in your way?
Just build around it.

Another example.


This is the King of all build-arounds. In 1888 St.Joseph's Catholic Church wouldn't move, so The Joske Brothers Clothing And Dry Goods Merchants built around it.
This is now Rivercenter Mall.
