Portovenere, Italy - year 2000

And the Cinque Terre, right before I broke my neck.

The town of Portovenere was one of the best places I have seen in Italy.

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

Went here in between a contest in Austria, and a contest in Switzerland. I broke my neck right after this trip in Lausanne.

The was a pretty hairy way to get on and off the boat with swells yet old grandmas were doing it very sketchy and wobbly.

thats cool that Deanna is mega updating.

This blog is entertaining and educational. Following the links brings you a wealth of information.

The chrome ball incident is an awesome blog. 20 years ago you would have needed some super dedicated dude to provide you with the detailed history of something. I bet historians are pissed

I have both your blog,and your wife's blog opened on my screen. Whose photos are better? Just kidding. My blog is wayyy better.

"The Reason of Cemeteries" doesn't sound as cool as The Cemetery of Reason. Because you're implying Reason doesn't exist and have metaphorically died and more primal instincts have taken over.

that graffiti penis is pretty small compared to the face it's jizzing all over. Unless she's into baby dicks.

7th photo, is that Reynolds chillin with his guch out? Jk.

Red Ronnie!!

I just read that 15 things you didn't know about Ed Templeton article. Why do you regret sticking with the impossible? and why the hell don't you use deodorant? hahah

Anyways...cool photos. I want to go to Italy someday. I really like the pictures of the people getting off the boat. There's barely a pathway and it's covered with people everywhere. It's weird how we manipulate nature. And of course the graffiti penis is funny.

today was strange. I got locked out of my apartment, then my girlfriend got locked out of our car. then we got some random locksmith we found off craigslist to open the car. I was talking to him and figured he wasn't even a locksmith but some random dude with the right tools. he could have definitely mugged us. but it was worth paying half price in the city for a door to get popped.

then on the ride home- there was this random song by an artist I didn't catch the name of that sounded exactly like it was Morrisey, but it wasn't. and I'm mad at myself for not getting the name or band or anything.

I had to do a lot of walking today through some shady areas of the city. there was random clamour all around; people talking, noise pollution, stupid mainstream music blaring from rickety old cars. but then, through the din of it all, I could hear it; CLACK CLACK - CLACK CLACK- CLACK CLACK. It was music to my ears. seeing some random dude cruising around on his skateboard. not a long board. Rare in the urban sprawl amongst yuppies bitching about the lower class vagrants and the pretentious snobs in hipster circles.
