Art Walk Silver Globe Road

Art Walk Silver Globe Road

When I was at my parents house I decided to make a catalog of all the artwork hanging there. I quickly discovered there were more paintings that are in trash bags in the basement. Quite a few of them I forgot that they even existed. Just for fun I’ll catalog them all here with a brief description, think of it as Art Walk Silver Globe Road. Mr. Crab was etched out in vinyl when I was at some early point…

Welcome to PALIN country! You’ve come a long way, baby! (taken a few hundred feet up the road — and two months after the election — from the house I grew up in) On Monday morning I awoke at an ungodly hour (PST) to ride to Columbus and meet up with my cousin and two aunts. These two aunts in particular I remember took me out to eat at O Charleys just a few weeks before I moved to California….

On Sunday I woke up to home-made buttermilk blueberry waffles with homemade apple syrup and homemade apple juice (are you noticing a theme here). There was also sausage -but we didn’t kill the pigs. In the early afternoon I headed over to my old friend Kenny’s house. I hadn’t seen Kenny since just before I moved to California (summer of 2004). My other old friend Jason was already there – I hadn’t seen him probably since high school. Both of…

On Saturday the majority of my mother’s extended family came for a christmas visit. Many of these relatives I hadn’t seen since thanksgiving 2003 (if my memory is correct). Most of them didn’t look much older (except for the kids). One of my cousins looked a lot more like me without the Harley Davidson facial hair though. The main courses consisted of coleslaw (from my uncle), mac n’ cheese, pulled pork, broccoli casserole and meatballs. I never knew my mother…

I searched for video of this show at the time of my original review, but there were none available… now on youtube there are lots… PS – the reason these are so dark is that the security was actually pretty good about catching videotapers (several people near me tried it and got shut down pretty fast), so I’m assuming this is shot from chest height so security couldn’t see.

We had our christmas on Friday this year since I was flying on the (not) actual day of the christ child’s birth. Here are some photos. Yummy homemade spaghetti with homegrown tomatoes in the sauce. Of course you can’t see any of that since I murdered it with a pound of cheese. On a trip to the mall (there is only one) I saw a store called “DEB” for “plump” women. In case you can’t read the tiny type on…

I’m starting to get into Dylan. Ironically most of these songs aren’t ever played on classic rock radio. Stuff like: 4th Time Around I Want You You’re a Big Girl Now

I woke up at 5:30 and was on my way to LAX by 6. Of course, even though there were few people on the freeway – there was STILL an accident at the 101/405 connector. I made it to JohnnyPark in about 35 minutes though. As I waited for their shuttle bus I saw three employees pile into my car and drive away. I think I’ll park at WallyPark next time. Even though JohnnyPark is three times as inexpensive… I…
