A nice view of the St. Baafs Cathedral, home of the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb, by the Van Eyck Brothers. The Dutch call it simply "Lam Gods."

Another Cathedral, the city center is under renovations.

Walking down the stairs in this medieval bell tower. Instead of lovely Deanna, imagine some knights, or a better yet a hunchback criddling around these corridors by candlelight...

Gent again from our hotel front door.

Deanna spotted a bird that apparently flew himself into a window and to his own suicide.

And now he is "art."

The museum's opening hall screen: Hey young kids! come see Ed Templeton's show!

Man,that 2007 post of Salford's lad club had a Sonic Lee coment.
I don't think I was digging Morrissey/Smiths as much back then. I remember listening to This Charming Man on a Christmas when my then ex was dating/boning a supposed "Friend" of years. And I was being lied to.

Jacob,Morrissey/Smiths are inevitable. You play guitar,right? We can jam together. I'd like to go to Europe,but I don't want to pay for a Hotel.Shit's expensive. And I only know one person(barely) in England.

It would feel like a crime to skate architectural masterpieces.Get over it.

Does that ad run on TV? When you die,that would make a great painting to put on your funeral brochure.

T-shirt for another company? RVCA is going to be pissed.

What are you feeling so awkward about?
Congratulation,Eggs, on lil Eggy JR.

What's new?

you're right, Purple Polanski isn't so purple in the correct print.

I'm at work.
Sipping coffee.
Typing instead of writing.
Stayed up until 2am drawing a rock band consisting of Muno (yo gabbab gabba), Animal, Spongebob, and Cookie Monster for transfer to my son's birthday cake.

Nice views. The next time I see a dead cow, I'm gonna take a photo of it. Maybe a dead baby. Devin would.

Beautiful city. HB is filled with dummies around this time. Just a bunch-o jocks wearing tanks & backwards Rockstar Engergy Drink trucker hats. & the chicks??? They only like small penises with big trucks. Good to lurk. Main St. is funny like that.

JGonz, is your name pronounced "Hordan"? I do play guitar. I'm buying Carolyn a nylon string classical guitar for her birthday. My paycheck was HUGE. Biggest & most I've ever gotten. I hate paying for things though. haha. I've been penniless, & fuck you Alexander Supertramp, it sucks. I understand no one needs things, but it's good when they're around. Like money, to buy my girlfriend lunch, or buy a new Toy Machine skateboard (hopefully my next one won't de-lam)..

I'm a'ramblin' on..

Ho Sum Bistro in Newport is delish.

Eggs, you're a good dad.
Keep it up!

So, about my de-lam situation... What do I do?
Posted By: Jacob on June 4th, 2010 at 03:37PM PST
Damn,Eggs.
making art pieces for cakes instead of planning on what brand of beer to get wasted at your kid's birthday.
High-five for normal(good) parenting.

Jacob,it's pronounced that way,and also normally. and sometimes "yordan". We have like 5 guitars one of which is electric,two basses,amps,drums and shit. Music is fun.
Oh,and get really skinny and hope your board de-lams in half so you'll have two boards.
Posted By: Jgonzalez on June 4th, 2010 at 04:18PM PST
Go to the contact page on toymachine.com, there will be an address(also found in toy ads) send your board their with a note saying your board has a bo bo and you want a new one.

Thanks for putting me on the sock team site :) but their are no spots in my town so don't expect to many videos.

I live in a cowtown so if you want a picture of a dead cow I could get one.

I play bass.....haha

Anyways...
I saw the show at the ICP. It was awesome. I don't know if you saw the other artist's works, but you had a lot more photos and thusly a lot more people looked at your stuff. I saw a couple classics in person which was sick. The photo of bam with the girl, the guy trying to stab you, the golden age of neglect cover. The photo of Arto in the hospital......holy shit man haha. In person its really something to see. I love that photo. Then after the show, in the gift shop I got both your books. I'm broke now haha but my parents said they'd pay me back as my birthday present. And then after your show, i saw Conan's tour at radio city which was awesome. Fucking Pee Wee Herman was there hahah.

Eggs, that drawing sounds awesome. Save it and post it somewhere.

That dead bird looks weird in the sky and not flying.
