Some Interesting Visitors

It has been a strange week for me. I'm off to Italy tomorrow, I should be posting when I can.
Dennis McGrath and Tobin Yelland at Mothers in HB.
Her very countenance breeds grain...
Might as well shoot myself at this dinner too.
Cruising HB via car.
The suburbs have a certain gleem these days I can't put my finger on.
Ran into Brian Sumner and his wife Tracy, and two of their 3 children downtown on Tuesday night.
Then via circumstances too convoluted to explain I found myself in my storage unit with Craig Stecyk and Melanie Berry.
There's Craig.
Melanie is always animated and telling great stories.
Getting Deanna's huge photos out presented quite a task for 4 grown adults somehow.
We let the motors run for the environment while we talked.
I don't know how this started, probably Melanie's idea.
The flowers at my house were going off.

You know,I don't know what to say. Your life is too interesting.
Enjoy Italy and all the delicious sauces/pastas they eat. Bon Voyage,or Bonni Voiyagie or however they say it.

I'm off to Nuoro, Sardina, Italy. See the link in the "Hot links" (Although they don't have a working website.)
I'm re-setting up the 'Cemetery of Reason' show.

Ed are you going to keep the photos coming from Italy? I assume you will. I watched a McGrath interview some time back about how he started getting into photography and his lady is an adult performer on film and he had her friends come over and pose for some pretty interesting photos and whatever. seems like an interesting kinda guy.

also- I submitted my addy was wondering if it was alright to ask if you were thinking of sending stuff out to the pawns who have submitted info on the interwebz or not? I also contacted and he seemed taken aback by the submission of address info on here. Anyhow- I don't care. was just hoping to see free stuff in the mail sometime seeing as I'm broke as fuck skating a blank for the time being.

man, how cute is the Sumner family?

I like how the picture of deanna is bad quality, but your picture's is beautiful.

Idle Free FREE zone.

Ive always wanted to go to Italy, Venice particularly, but the problem is the streets are made of water so you can't skate.
I might go soon.

That Mother's has tables??

I got my package today. Thank you soooo soo so much.
I got some socks, some sticker, & an original, signed, Ed Templeton print, hot off the press. haha. Jk. I wish.

But thanks for the socks & stickers. I really appreciate it. It made me feel nostalgic. Like I was opening gifts, or a stocking, rather.

That Melanie chick looks bad to the bone.

Deanna's pictures are cute.

I almost hit 4 people riding bikes on the 4th. Damn beach cruisers. Carolyn says I shouldn't think it's whack when HB people ride beach cruisers because it's apparently cool. Where I came from, it would be like wearing sandals in the snow.

Tobin's sweater is kickin'.!/photo.php?pid=30752636&id=1411807738&fbid=1323762780101

Toy Machine socks:the most colorful jizz rags I'd ever possess.

I want to go to Italy so bad haha.

anyone watch the Brian Sumner I am second video?.....I really don't know what to think about it. I'm happy for him though haha

I was going to say that you have a very interesting life, but JGonz took it the words from me.....but i still said it anyway haha.

I like the first picture of the flowers, i've never seen that type of flower before.

I sent my address to, and I received no response haha. I hope I didn't do something wrong.

Have Fun in Italy
