Now help me, O ye Guardian Powers!

I found another of my little Nerd friends. This time a silver and green guy in a cubby behind a Chinese restaurant in the Irvington neighborhood. I will have to admit it is fun searching these guys out. Can't wait for the weather to swing for good so I can get out more. Watch for more...

I also think I took the first flash picture I liked with the mighty Nikon Coolpix.

I don't have a clue who the girl in the picture is but my housemate was going to use it for a Hi Fi Killers album cover for a record that never was released because the label (Loose Groove) folded. Kevin Lee Oakland (sic) and Johnny Horn (pictured below) made up the Killers.
They released four records and a few singles, compilation cuts and scored a movie or two for the label started by Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam.

Anyway, Johnny now does a radio show on KEXP 90.3 FM called Preachin' the Blues and Kevin is rockin' it Hilbilly Bluegrass Style in a band called Cocks in the Henhouse.

yeah...the little guy is on the front of the Nerd's brand of candy. Not my favorite candy (too much carnuba wax) but the dude is kinda striking.
