I don't need no friends to tell me who my friends are, I don't need some pig to tell me what the rules are, I've got an ear for every sound, I've got an ear down to the ground.
The line has been drawn.

Austin, Texas - Part 5

The opening night (since long past) festivities.

See Otis Ike's photos of the opening here!
7809img6823.JPG
Took a walk before the opening along Ceasar Chavez there in Austin.
7809img6824.JPG
What a lovely street, with charming old houses.
7809img6825.JPG
We were heading toward Mr. Natural, and authentic mexican food joint that has a lot of vegan dishes. It ruled heavily. At some point I will update our Food Blog with some photos and review.
7809img6835.JPG
Then we walked back toward downtown Austin in the cool dusk. What a great time in this part of Texas before it gets too hot.
7809img6836.JPG
We arrived and the opening was in full swing. And some Loyal Pawns were waiting to be photographed and put onto the website. Wishes granted young men.
7809img6837.JPG
I did an interview for the kid in the middle's zine.
7809img6838.JPG
"Put us on the Toy Machine website!"
7809img6840.JPG
Deanna shot the opening scene.
7809img6842.JPG

7809img6843.JPG
Luke McKirdy and Tria were there with their son. I used to skate with Luke when he was in Huntington Beach. A fine English gentleman.
7809img6847.JPG
Russell is the sweetest. Go buy some books at Domy's in Austin. You'll feel good that you supported a local business, but bad that you contributed to tree killing, but then good that you still read and like creative words and pictures.
7809img6849.JPG
Our last view of the show before driving off.
7809img6853.JPG
I guess I will include the drive home in this post, because there is not many more digi shots to use here. I should get my B&W shots sometime next week and I can do some more Austin posting. We stopped in Fredericksburg, a small German town west of Austin. Admiral Nimitz (of Pacific WWII fame) was born here.
7809img6854.JPG
This was his house. I mainly shot these for my grandfather, who served in WWII.
7809img6856.JPG
There is actually a museum to the Pacific War in landlocked Frederickburg, Texas, and there is a plaque for every ship that was in the war.
7809img6857.JPG
I found the ship my grandfather was on, the USS San Diego. They were the first ship into Tokyo harbor, before the surrender was final. Donate some cash for the people of Japan.
7809img6864.JPG
We pretty much powered it home.
7809img6860.JPG
But we did behold much of the beauty of this great chunck of earth on our way. (And swerved around a deer or two.)

Nice review of my show in Budapest<----------

Austin, Texas - Part 3

The set-up – or as the pros call it, the installation.
7792img6772.JPG
We nailed my mini cluster, then started with Deanna's. If you missed it in LA, you could see it in Texas.
7792img6773.JPG
Bigfoot sighting...
7792img6774.JPG
"Lets get an install action shot."
7792img6776.JPG
I only use the anti-vibe hammer. I would use Hart hammers, because my good friend Jamie Hart's dad invented them. But they are out of business.
7792img6778.JPG
Took a walk, witnessed this: The unveiling of an Apple store along with people lined around the block presumably waiting for the new iPads.
7792img6779.JPG
Everyone cheered when the Apple logo was revealed. I felt sorry for them. (from my high and mighty perch way above.)
7792img6780.JPG
A sight to record and remember for ever, the new Apple store.
7792img6781.JPG
This was about to premiere. Missed the brawl.
7792img6783.JPG
7792img6784.JPG
I always end up making it look shitty. This was the worst part, me blowing it with hand written letters.

Austin, Texas - Part 2

The quest to the Domy's Bookstore...
7790img6736.JPG
Ate in Phoenix, then really hit the road. It only takes effect about 8 hours away from home.
7790img6743.JPG
In El Paso, Texas, we stopped to buy sandwich materials since El Paso is not so vegan friendly. I bought a small cooler and filled it with ice to keep the items chilled. Then we drove to downtown El Paso to make sandwiches and eat them. We parked in the shade near San Jacinto Square, and walked into the square to eat our sandwiches while some hippies played a drum and tried to sell their artwork and handicrafts, and a series of older Mexican men in cowboy hats sat around staring into space. One of them arose and started singing mariachi songs out loud for no apparent reason. It was nice.
7790img6747.JPG
Lettuce placed with TLC.
7790img6749.JPG
Deanna dislikes photos of her while eating. We cruised around the old downtown. Entire floors of buildings were empty, nothing inside them. The stores that are still in business put all of their products out on the sidewalk, leaving the buildings desolate save for concrete.
7790img6752.JPG
In between El Paso and Austin is quite barren. But there is also some excellent country to be seen.
7790img6756.JPG
Nice mosaic to look at after you pee.
7790img6761.JPG

7790img6764.JPG
Onto Austin, via Fredericksburg, not San Antonio.
7790img6770.JPG
And for dinner? The same as we had for brunch, sandwiches with lettuce, vegan mayo, vegan turkey slices, pickles, and mustard.

Russell has posted photos from the Opening in Austin!

Austin, Texas - Part 1

Deanna and I drove out to Austin, Texas to bring the artwork, set-up, and enjoy the opening night of our show together at Domy's Bookstore.

They started out with grand aspirations, but quickly lost interest.

Interstate 10 beckoned us East. Deanna drives the days, I the nights.

DON'T FORGET - (pun intended) Deanna and I have an art show in Austin, Texas. It opens March 12th at Domy Bookstore. People in Dallas and Forth Worth, don't be a wuss. It's only 3.5 hours by car. I expect you to be there. People in Houston, only 3 hours. San Antonio is only 1 hour 20 minutes. To all Loyal Pawns of Toy Machine and Photography lovers: Attendance is Mandatory. Even Corpus Christi is a 3.5 hour drive. See you all there, you won't be disappointed.

Sitting on a Stark plastic couch that I painted on, and let kids paint on, at the now defunct HB skate park. (We skated on it too.) This was in the also now defunct Alleged Gallery when it was in LA, during a Stephen Powers exhibition.

Speaking of Rowley, big things are happening in his life. Those background paintings are both by me from 94 and maybe as early as 91 or 92. I can't believe he has them hanging!

At the Clare Rojas opening I finally met Fumihiro Hayashi aka Charlie Brown, a man I have worked with through his magazine Dune, but never met in person. He was in Lost in Translation too!
