The “Prodigal Contributor” returns. Not to sound like a broken record (if anyone remembers those, but I know I do) or maybe for today's “yout,” a glitched mp3 file—life and death have indeed gotten in the way the past few months. My thanks to Marty and others for helping to fill the void here. I have gotten out for a few photos the past few weeks and will share some of them today. Some of the usual board of fare (or 'bored' of fare for those yawning through these posts of mine) such as a few Central Illinois Cruise Nights, as the “Gearhead” in me shall never die. A few of those classics included a 1957 Olds Super 88 with the J-2 Tri-Power set up, and a stunning black 1961 Ford Starliner with a new 4.6 DOHC crate motor, combining, both old and new, slammed to the ground, this beauty is done right.
A few are of some new/old abandoned places I have stumbled across on Route 66 between Joliiet and South of Bloomington, IL and a couple of summer sunsets, with natually an abandoned garage, setting the tone.
I did get out to see my pals Dan Vapid And The Cheats Record Release Show at the Cobra Lounge in Chicago a few weeks ago (Dan was “The Secret Weapon's” Artist of the Year in 2012) and his new release “Two” is going to be tough to beat in 2013. It also provided my feeble attempt at shooting humans and some in black and white.
My apologies for my brief “Trip to Belize,” but I returned to commemorate the final episodes of “Breaking Bad.” I just had to find a way to segue into it, as it is so deserving of mention. I have discussed it at length with Marty, and have said, not only is it the best thing I have ever seen on television, it may indeed be the best thing I will EVER see on television. Being a follower since day one, I am envious of those who got into the series later and could watch episodes and seasons back to back. For me, it is addicting as Meth and the withdrawals are just as bad. With six more episodes left, it remains the highlight of my Sunday evenings. It has become the barometer of which all other TV shows shall be judged. I recently heard the greatest ending, (and I wish I could take credit for it, but I cannot) and it is brilliant—“Breaking Bad” will end when Walt wakes up next to Jane Kaczmarek. Classic.
It's great to be back, and to see all of your lovely typefaces here. As always, just sit back and watch the pictures as they scroll by.
