These few hot and sweaty days produced plenty of blog-fodder.

Spying on people from atop the Pompidou Center. These girls were hoping Netherlands would win the World Cup. They did not.

What are the chances, zoomed to the max on your digi-cam, that a pigeon would fuck up (make better) your shot? Eat that decisive moment Cartier-Bresson...

They openend windows on the escalators hanging off the side of the Pompidou, something I have never seen, but it gave a clear overview of Paris...

The escalator, a glass tube on a hot day, was miserable.

We watched the finals of the world cup standing in the street looking into a restaurant with a TV, Spain won, and the Spanish people in Paris got into the public fountains and went berzerker.

OK, I'm over it. So is Diego.

At night this place is filled with hairy men, trust me.

They are trying to tone down the epic carnival artwork by painting bathing suits on all the naked ladies. I bet some lame ass Americans caused this to happen somehow.

Posted July 23rd, 2010 by Maddona used to be the slut of the lower east side.
Espana won. INIESTA. dude reminded me of Krillin. I guess that chest kick was pretty badass.

That pigeon looks as if it has frightened the negro woman sitting and enjoying a Parisan afternoon casually sitting in a square,the solitude amongst the others as she seperates herself,yet,finds quite the surprise;the viewer is fully aware of the trompe l'oeil that we observe here. As if a giant sort of bird has swooshed down. Gay.

Wow,cool photo of the Eiffel tower.Kicks the ass of a lot of shitty facebook photos. It sucks when people upload like 80 crappy photos of the same thing instead of a small handful of good photos. I guess I'm just better than everyone.

lolool at the guy sleeping.
By Friday life has killed me
By Friday life has killed me...
Then the Heimlich sex position in the next photo.wow. I just thought what if you have a girl choke on a wang then have someone behind her do the Heimlich maneuver. Then end up buttfucking her. There's another porn plot for you.You can tell your Dennis McGrath about it.

Deanna,gettin' tubular.
Hey,i like Francis Bacon.

I had a bro-crush on Diego Forlan,that dude is badass.

Ed,you could pull off the whole Bear thing.Not like that Descendents song though.

Lame-ass American? What are you claiming now? At least you're not related to Sarah Palin or Ann Coulter.

I can imagine the guys carrying the woman on the surfboard chanting "sex!sex!sex!sex!" as they take her off to gang bang her.Because a group of guys nude together totally isn't gay when you're all sticking your pee pees in a female.

Ed spends so much time in other countries he sometimes forgets that he is a lame-ass american.

i THINK i'LL MAKE A VIDEO FOR THE SOCK TEAM WHEN IT'S DONE RAINING.

Fuck caps lock

as a bear/older men lovin' dude, I am really excited that you posted the photo of The Bears' Den. Thanks!

I'm happy to be an American, but some of us Americans are lame. I'm not gonna blindly never say anything bad about an American, so get used to it.

that pigeon photo would make bresson's socks roll up and down!

Americans are fat too, we were all thinking it so there it is.

May I just say, in that last post, you & Deanna look stunning. I guess you two look best when you're all sweaty. Mmmmmmm....

Those views are amazing. I wish I had enough money or really cool art friends to go to Europe. Europe has been on my mind lately, & these photos help. Thank you.

JGonz would throw some girls in a fountain.

JGonz, I'll be in SF from the 16th of August 'til the 20th. You should bus it down for a day. We can go get kicked out of every skate spot & raped by bums.

My AE-1 has never leaked light. Because it's made from stone.

Bear porn = old hairy men having anal time.
Ed, If I was you, I'd sprint in there & shoot tons of photos of awkward opportunities. Then again, I'm super hairy & they might be all on my hairy ass. But that'd be if you were me...

Europe is slowly being Americanized. I had no idea that there were any form of Starbucks in Europe. Starbucks only made it big from cafe con leche. Coffee with milk, for you white people. & some steaming. You bought your coffee beans there. Ripped off the other beans. The Mexicans create things like their candy, super fucking good, but poor material, i.e. lead, baby parts, etc..

I have been lagging on the comments.

The weathers been splendid here. It's like SF. Sunny & warm, but with a good breeze. Just thought you'd like to know. Kinda rainy as well.. It sprinkles here & there.

See ya'.

All the sweaty pics make me thankful for American air conditioning.
God bless the USA and air filters made in PROC.

Funny thing about Jake is, I recently started introducing myself as Jacob.

Everyone else I've known as of a year ago called me Jake.
My whole life I was a Jake, but I didn't feel like a Jake. I think Jacob likes to play music, & take pictures, & eat Indian food.

Jake likes to off-road, talk about cars, & flex his manly strength.

Total opposites, you see.

Diggity, I'd watch your mouth if I was you, boy.
Yer talking to the OG's here. Yer a newbie.

RESPECT.

*Note: I take all of this SERIOUSLY.

I'm seriously serious about being serious in a serious way. Serious.

Interwebbingz srs bizness. On a serious note though; I'm totally not serious.

Watching your mouth. I always thought that was a weird thing to say. Like; watch your ass. Watch my ass? why am I going to watch my ass? are you planning to do something with my butt? well I'm glad I have some pants on. I'm going to watch you though if you tell me you plan on doing something with my butt.

Or this one; "watch it"..... wow really? You're going to be that vague? "it"... I have to watch IT. Oh wait! just remembered this one! "I'd keep an eye open if I were you" hahaha that one is great and good too. Not like I'm just going to shut my eyes for good. I would hope I have my eyes open.... oh you!

wait... what now? oh alright, so yeah; Jacob (not Jake) usually doesn't have as creepy of posts as Mike but it's really splitting hairs so I would have to say just that last one as of recent was the creepiest this week.

Why must you keep commenting if we're all so creepy, Noob?

Woah, this happened?
Posted By: Jacob on July 25th, 2010 at 05:48PM PST
Never realized that Jacob was creepy, I don't think he is.
I guess a creep can't tell a creep from a normal person. Normal people kinda suck, just like noobs.

I'm just posting things on a free message board. Didn't mean to ruffle feathers. Everything is ok.

World turning. Sun rising.

but yeah- watching mouths and butts. I'm still not doing that. I still think it's funny to hear that.
