Catalina again? Yes, with fan favorite Stacy

She was shooting a video and needed a boat driver. So she hired the best skipper she knows.

Edwin Carungay was shooting the video. I used to skate with him in the mid to late 80's. He was sponsored by Vision, and was on the same team as the Gonz!

Stacy is always on.

Portovenere, Italy - year 2000

Such a small and quaint town. very few American tourists, all of whome seemed to flock to the nearby Cinque Terre.

Blurry Photos from Yosemite

I forget how old these are, but safe to say over a decade. I had a twin lens reflex camera that I brought to Yosemite National Park. I didn't know how to use it.
72060937blurryyosemite.jpg
I wasn't lying. They are super blurry.
72060937deannayosemite.jpg
You may be asking yourself, "Why am I looking at shitty photos on a website?" And I would reply, "Why are you looking at shitty photos on a website? Go out and do something better with your time."
72060937yosemitesquareed.jpg
But look how young and skinny I was.

This was the only good photo on the roll. Jamie Hart, circa 1998, - 97 maybe?

The Happiest Place on Earth

Or so I'm told. People seemed pretty bummed in the parking lot.

Kevin is one handsome man.

Laura attacked a bowl of rice crispies lashed together with butter and sugar.

She even has some stand-up about Disneyland.

And I had forgotten to take any photos.
7193img4405.JPG
But then the night picked back up again in the parking lot.
7193img4406.JPG
Kevin started a dance party...
7193img4407.JPG
This is what you get when you hang out with stand-up comedians. A good time. No pressure.

Something I saw but failed to capture

Saw this guy walking with an older woman on the beach...
7187ikaguywithmom.jpg
I was up on the pier, and they were walking down below. When they got a little closer I realized there was a swastika tattoo covering his whole belly. The woman looked like some normal mother type, they were holding hands. My gut reaction was to run down to get a photo, but it would have been too obvious and they would have walked really far by the time I got to them. So I just watched from the pier as they walked along the beach, passing people. People would notice and pretend to not see it, but after they passed ten steps would look back in amazement. They even walked past an African American surfer dude, who did the same thing. Waited then looked in astonishment. I was hoping they would pass some super gnarly black dudes visiting from Compton or something, that would have been a strange interaction. In my head I was thinking that if he did that in the past and has become enlightened, he would not ever take his shirt off in public again, or get the tattoo covered somehow. But the fact that he has it still, and will come to the beach and walk around with it on display tells me he is 100% proud of it. But the mother? Her too? Shocking to me.

Catalina Adventure from June 2010

This guy may have cut my hair when I was a 16 year old boy. I had skater bangs and was in Catalina swimming when I saw some kids make fun of my hair. I tripped so hard, and was so sick of wearing a hat that I went to the barber and asked for the haircut that Don Brown had on the cover of Transworld that month. The only way to describe it, was a tall flat-top. Ah, youth.

Deanna getting "inappropriate" with a mural.
7144img4203.JPG
While Deanna was frenching the mural Lindsay was being goosed by some guy on the coaster. How inappropriate!
7144img4206.JPG
"What? He felt Lindsays ass but not mine? Lemme get in there. Deanna, hold my leg up so he can grope me." Is Deanna placing a tab of acid on his tongue?
7144img4207.JPG
3-way cooch fisting orgy with spectators in public? Finally, we reached the pinnacle of inappropriate.

I'm missing the boat, I need to get in on this.

Lemme give this dolphin a beej too. Jerk that bottle-nose.
7144img4217.JPG
I fish-hooked a dude for making lewd comments.

Deanna bench presses a dolphin. It's nice to be with a group of people when you can let your inner dork out and just have fun with no judgement. We'll leave that to you.

Food Tour. What? Yeah. Part 3

San Francisco, still foggy even in late summer.

Each day was crisp, and the scant sun that fought through was devoured by all.

Fisherman's Wharf. Dirty hippies are there too, but I'm just being sentimental.
7142img4106.JPG
Lindsay's birthday dinner, after the fact, but still in honor. So young, so much life ahead of her.
7142img4107.JPG
Deanna and I toast to food touring with our virgin drinks. Is that Mike Kershnar at that table back there?
7142img4110.JPG
Happy Birth-Daaaay!
7142img4111.JPG
There are WAY more photos like this outside of restaurants, but I will spare you. Millennium is hands down the best vegan restaurant in California, and hence, probably the best on the west coast. So if you are vegan, make the pilgrimage, and be ready to spend some dough, it's fancy.
7142img4091.JPG
Have you ever made out for 2.5 hours? Straight kissing for over 2 hours with scant attempts at a boob or bun grab?
7142img4117.JPG
Berkeley, another hippie epicenter, Stacy tried my shred-sled, and in the process discovered she's mongo. Deanna said, "You're pushing mongo!" And Lindsay said, "I wouldn't even know how to pedal one of those things."
(If you're in Berkeley, go to Cinnaholic.)
7142img4121.JPG
Into the Napa Valley on a food mission. Downtown Napa is fairly trife. 50 percent of the businesses were shut-down and empty. We asked a skater kid working at a hotel what there was to do here, and he said, "Nothing." We stopped at the visitor center to look for something inappropriate to do.
7142img4122.JPG
Boo-Ya, cheesy-puss! Why did she choose Swiss cheese eh?
7142img4124.JPG
Stacy shows us her wine rack, (What middle-aged woman would buy that and wear it around?) while Lindsay looks for something innapropriate to do - you can see she wants in on the action, even though she hates having her photo taken.
7142img4126.JPG
Went antique shopping. You know you're over-the-hill when that's a good time. I bought an army song book from 1941. Pretty epic knowing the lyrics to all these famous songs we grow up hearing.
7142img4127.JPG
This was 3 bucks but I didn't buy it. I wanted to see what was inside, and now I never will.
7142img4129.JPG
Menu-check, - check!
7142img4136.JPG
Stacy, getting mildy innapropriate.
7142img4138.JPG
Let me dip your head into this wonderful park.

"A true man never frets about his place in the world, but just slides into it by the gravitation of his nature, and swings there as easily as a star." –Edwin Hubbel Chapin
7142img4146.JPG
Stacy on the moods swings. If your pants are lavender, it means you have clarity and are sensual. Unless it's the other lavender, in that case you are fearful and uncertain.
7142img4147.JPG
"We  are born with a scream; we come into life with a scream, and maybe love is a mosquito net between the fear of living and the fear of death." –Francis Bacon
7142img4148.JPG
After exploring all of downtown Napa we resorted to driving around until we found this park.
7142img4152.JPG
Perhaps I'm over doing the swings?

Food Tour. What? Yeah. Part 2

The continuing saga.
7140img4040.JPG
Lets start off with more of Stacy getting "inappropriate" whenever humanly possible.
7140img4043.JPG
Why were there so many dick books at this bookstore anyway? Stacy peeks into the glory hole, waiting for someone to stuff it.
7140img4042.JPG
Lets take a look inside that book... So many great writers, photographers, and artists who can't get published - I'm glad that a book you can stick your dick into was made. Think of the writer who spent years writing a novel and trying to get it published feels when she sees this book. A one-time use fuckable joke book. Think of those trees growing hundreds of years to make this. I digress...
7140img4044.JPG
Went to the SF MOMA where an impressive installtion by Barry McGee was hanging.
7140img4046.JPG
People were naturally drawn to it.
7140img4048.JPG
It pulls you in and makes you peruse all the images - a giant breast you can't touch.
7140img4049.JPG
Lindsay and Deanna enjoyed it very much...
7140img4050.JPG
There was also a Chris Johanson in the same room. That room basically nailed it.

Sect sock was semi-interested in Ellsworth Kelly.

He preferred the Gerhard Richter's, but thought these were not the best ones.

Chris J and Barry products in the store too?

Food Tour. What? Yeah. Part 1

Essentially, I went on a "food tour." The girls had been talking about going to SF forever to try some new vegan restaurants, and to visit our old favorites. Suddenly, everyone's schedules opened up at the right time and the next thing you know we are on the road to visit Nor-Cal - and the main reason was food. Somehow I feel a sort of shame when I admit this. But when I think about it more I have no regrets about going on a road trip with 3 cute girls. (well, two cute ones and one perfectly amazing one...) Let the estrogen party begin.

Lurking up to Stacy's house to collect her and Lindsay.
7136img4016.JPG
Hugs to start the day. Anytime I said anything "male," like when I cursed at a shitty driver on the road, the girls would say, "Awww, Ed's being 'sentimental.'"
7136img4018.JPG
The food tour started before we even left LA. We stopped at Madeline's Bistro for brunch. And these things are like donut-holes. I'm gonna gain some weight on this trip.
7136img4019.JPG

7136img4020.JPG
Caught Stacy copping a feel of some mannequin-boob and I realized girls are way dirtier than boys. A theme was emerging - over the course of the trip I would collect a series of "inappropriate" photos, mostly of Stacy, who is game for almost* anything. Enjoy.
(*The girls definitely declined some of the photos I suggested they pose for, (not that I was pulling any legs for most of them - if not being called over to document stuff they were already doing.) But there were some "too racy" or "credibility crushing" for the blog that I have been sworn not to post.)
7136img4021.JPG
This girl pulled this guys hands out of her pants just before I got caught shooting them. Public Affection is Open Season for photographers, beware.
7136img4023.JPG
Hey Lindsay and Deanna! Come over and get some melons with Stacy!
7136img4024.JPG
Lemme get higher for a better cleavage shot.
7136img4025.JPG
Bread Boner. Stacy was on a roll and we hadn't even left Los Angeles yet. She should have squatted that loaf instead. Speaking of chicks with dicks, we shared a table our first night in SF with a tranny, and not the kind you skate. Fairly authentic surgical boobs on a totally masculine body, deep voice, and adam's apple. We overheard him/her and her man-date discuss the bath they were about to take together. Good times!
Posted September 2nd, 2010 by Food tour! Food tour! Party time, excellent. Yeah we sung that.
