Fante on screen

So there's a movie version of the John Fante novel Ask the Dust coming out today.

Hmm. Okay...

Salma Hayek and Colin Farell. Whatever.

Hollywood makes things suck.

And yet, somehow I know I'll go see it anyway.

Wigin' Out!

As promised, actual pictures taken at the Wigin' Out party for Garret's 30th birthday, courtesy of Emilie Harris. "I know you!"

El Robo holds up the building, Moon dog, and the chick from Prince.

The fire outside was a great place to hang.

Strange people in a strange land. I don't know these people. Their faces remind me of being at a wig party though.

Behold! The cup that caught my holy blood!

Bizarre and bold, those attending were willing to strike whatever pose they felt like at Wigin' Out.

Wait a second! That's not a wig!

Love is in the air... Makes me think of Paris on a full moon.

Heay! Get that beer out ma nose!

The girl there on the right obviously does not have on a wig out of the 2 pictured here, so flagrantly disobeying the rules will get you punished.

HEP ME, does not mean Hepatitis! Some people with pink hair think so.

She's making a shadow puppet of her own head.

So it was at the beginning, so shall itl be in the end.

Garret turns 30, Saints lose, wiggin' out with Gary.

Garret turns 30, Saints lose, wiggin' out with Gary. Garret's thirtieth turns up some interesting photographs as well as some hilarious phrases, such as "Gary" simply saying this will make me laugh uncontrollably from now on. Rob was in good form Friday night and had us all laughing hard.

A nice campsite in Pace Bend, its up on a hill and so there is an excellent view of the lake and surroundings.

Rob's sleeping spot, a picture is worth a thousands words, this one says everything about the night before. Yes those are rocks he is sleeping on. He stayed in his spot like this even after we were all awake and doing things. He arose only after the boudin was hot.

Andy comtemplates his next move.

Andy has had enough for now, we will return after a nap and some breakfast.

Pente battles can be very entertaining, here Andy has just awoken from a 3 hour nap.

Rob beat the crap out of Andy, but round robin allowed him to rally back and take home the championship.

Elijah loved it out there, I dont think he had ever seen anything like Lake Travis.

Andy is about to do the most amazing thing I ever didn't take a picture of.

The ride home. Back to Austin, and Barton Springs, from there, it was time to get ready to party for Wiggin' Out for Garret and Julianna's 30th birthdays. I will post pictures of the party as soon as I get some, I didnt take that many, I was having so much fun.Posted by Picasa

hEY Alright my first post.

Agent A is onboard.

Fire torpedoes! 1 thru 245

Been awhile.

Its been a long long time since i've posted, what can I say, i'm lazy when it comes to this. One thing makes me feel pretty good is that no other members have posted or read anything in a long long long time, that's 3 longs. Come on guys, you can do better, so can I.

This here is a picture of me with the Smokin' Joe tour in Magee, Mississippi. 5 man 1 woman crew feeding 400 ravenous, hard working, appreciative utility workers trying to get the power on in Miss. We all signed on for 10 days of work, when we got there, 80% of Miss. had no electricity b/c of hurrican Katrina, after I left, they had restored power to about 50% of that 80%. Work started at 4 in the morning and ended at about 10:30 at night, you took breaks whenever you could but for the most part there were no breaks.

Enon Blowout.

Jessica's birthday Enon camp-a-thon was a huge success. Unfortunately I did not get as many good pictures as I would have wanted to, as I was busy having so much fun. Even though I did catch this huge bass, I really did not fish that much, most of my time was spent either at the river, tubing on the river, or swimming in the pond. And since my camera is not waterproof I didn't even bring it with me to those places.

And the rumors are true, there IS an Alligator who has taken up residence in the pond. He is scheduled for termination...

Super Weekend!

This past weekend was amazing...

12:00pm Saturday: Went to Henderson Lake with Nathan and Evan, fished and swam, also got flashed (no pic., im so sorry!) Minutes before we left, Andy called from New Orleans to invite me to go fishing in Pointe A La Hache.

7:30pm Saturday: Leave for Pointe A La Hache, 3.5 hours away south of New Orleans to go Speckled trout and Redfish fishing.

11:30pm Saturday: Arrive at Pointe A La Hache to find my crew getting completely smashed, join in the revelry and begin to realize im not going to be getting a bit of sleep.

4:55am Sunday: Decide to try and go to bed.

5:00am Sunday: I am woken up by a leaf blower being blown in my face. Its time to go fishing Jason says.

12:00pm Sunday: After having fished all day, we caught a bunch and had a great time, without any sleep, its time to go home.

2:00pm Sunday: My eyes begin to close involuntarily while driving, since thats bad, I pull over and sleep for about half an hour in the driveway of a house for sale.

3:00pm Sunday: Arrive at the homestead, I am dizzy and my eyes and mouth seem to have a mind of their own, my eyes keep rolling around in my head and my mouth keeps dropping open for no reason.

4:00pm Sunday: Sweet sweet sleep.

Here are the pictures, they are chronologically backwards.
