70000 Tons of Metal rocked my Fucking world

Im back from the heavy metal cruise and in the airport working on images much to the consternation of those around me.  There will be a lot more to come in the coming days but here is an image that pretty much sums up my experience last week.  Heavy Metal right up in your face.  For those that care, that is Jon Schaffer and Matt Barlow of Iced Earth killing it…

Ah, the cruising lifestyle…

So, just did my online check in for the Metal Cruise next week and damn, it is as annoying as I thought it would be.  It was chock full of lame terms like “SetSail” pass.  Its not a boarding pass, its a damn SetSail pass.  I lost count of how many times ahoy and welcome aboard were mentioned too, pretty hokey.  So, on that note, this will be my illustrious home for the cruise.  I have a feeling that the lower few decks are going to be rowdy, loud and absolute mayhem.  Perfect.

Its not 4:56

I have a russian submarine clock in my office.  Its pretty interesting looking but Im pretty sure its a replica.  I like how it keeps ticking away above my head; kind of ominous yet reassuring at the same time.  Im in and out so much I can never really keep up with keeping it wound and on time so it always displays the wrong time.  I still like it.

 

New gallery is live

Just a quick note but I just put up a new gallery from this summer on my site.  You can find it under ‘Stories’ and it is the longest yard sale one.  I don’t know why I wait so long to post but I think it is partly because I need to let them marinate and simmer in the back of my mind for awhile.  Enjoy.
