Spending money I don't have, to buy parts I don't need, to impress people I don't know!

Saw this cool ride in Bingen, WA this last weekend.


Telling lies and showing off to get attention are mistakes I made that I don't want my kids to make.

Cat Ballou

"Some gang! An Indian ranch hand, a drunken gunfighter, a sex maniac, and an uncle!"


"My name isn't pretty-pretty, it's Barbarella."

Judy Bernly

"Oh, this is terrible. It's so improper. It's so disrespectful!"

At any street corner the feeling of absurdity can strike any man in the face.

When I stopped for coffee this morning at Cartola I was reminded of one of my new favorite tags. I realize it is primitive at best but the cool thing is it is back lit so when you drive by at night there is an otherworldly creature hanging out in front of the Knott St Market.

This sticker on the sign in front of Cartola caught my eye as well. I feel sorta dirty though.

You Say Potato I Say #*@! You!

Stumbled upon this blog today. I have always been fascinated by this type of anthropomorphic (?) advertisement. Cartoon strawberries selling milkshakes in drive-ins and hip-hop string cheese hanging in supermarket dairy coolers.

Inline Skating adolescent string cheese.

Cheese Heads.

It's rare when you have everything going perfectly all at the same time.

Ellen Ripley

"Micro changes in air density, my ass."

Dana Barrett

"There is no Dana, there is only Zhul."

Gwen DeMarco

"I remember that sound. That's a bad sound."

I think Hollywood has a class system. The actors are like the inmates, but the truth is they're running the asylum.

Travis Bickle

"I got some bad ideas in my head."

Max Cady

"Granddaddy used to handle snakes in church, Granny drank strychnine. I guess you could say I had a leg up, genetically speaking."

Jake LaMotta

"They called me an animal. I'm not an animal."

In space no one can hear you scream "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!".

Hal wearing his foil covered power dome to avoid having his brain microwaved by neutrinos.

Gigantor's cousin Enormo and his friend plod across the birthday cake landscape looking for something to destroy.

After stumbling upon the baron wasteland of cake-lessness proves to much for Enormo, he and his metal behemoth friend choose to leave this ceramic dystopia in search of new environs in which to wreak their brand of galactic havoc on.

Thank you Kate, Max and Gary for making my birthday special.

Robocop, it was my contribution to cinema.

Buckaroo Banzai

“No matter where you go, there you are.”

Alex Murphy

"Dead or alive, you're coming with me! "

Bill Lee

"Exterminate all rational thought. That is the conclusion I have come to."

I seem to have a knack for picking movies that go on to be cult favorites.

Snake Plissken

"I don't give a fuck about your war... or your president."

R.J. MacReady

"I just wanna get up to my shack and get drunk..."

Jack Burton

"Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it"."
