Glasgow Part 3 - Necropolis

They don't call it a cemetery, it's the city of the dead.

Died 15 December, 1861, the American Civil War was raging. That statue has no head, but holds only a mask.

The necropolis reaches out like a strangling vine, waiting ever so slowly to latch on and slowly smother...

wow what a GREAT photoset. That graveyard has character. I like the one with the vine streching out to smother (something). Enough about that;
THE TEMPSTER RETURNS -to instagram!!!!!! Best news to wake up to :)
With even a nightlurkers picture we are getting off to a good start. I think the commenters on this board should take credit, right?

Ed asked if someone still shoots photos on film, and to be honest I dont right now, and havent for about a year. BUT I plan to do so when I start school in a new city this fall. I know they have a darkroom that students get access to when they want so I can develop my own black and whites.

I wonder, if Ed ever came to Oslo of if I ever went somewhere he was having a demo or something, if I would have the guts to go there and try to meet him. Have you guys met him ?

Tempster´s back, Tempster returns..
What will be the name for the next comeback..
Tempster rises?

Last night I checked in and you had like 1000 followers
and this morning there are more than 3000...?
Impressive.

Looking forward to get my daily morning dose of titties.

I like graveyards.They´re usualy the most quiet places in town.
Maybe I wouldn´t like them if I knew people there.
Good photos, good quotes.

Yeah these pics are sick.
I haven't been using my Minolta for stills but I've been meaning to get some Super 8 stock for my sweet little Nizo. shits not economical though and at weird times becomes so hard to find.

Are you from Norway Emilie? 'cause thats awesome! If you were to be near Ed or anyone you should definitely say hi. I've never met any of the Toy dudes yet though. New England is not the most cherished area for the pros to be visiting.

Dead and dark is appropriate for the dreary rainy day on the East Coast USA today.
Now Insta is worth more with Ed back. They should renegotiate the purchase price.

Great pics mate. Nice high vantage point it is. Remember, strollin around that grey stoned hill in equally grey skies a few years back and talkin to my fam in Oz via Motorola PAYG mobile - a small world it is but, strangely enough the wizard didn't appear at the time ;)

A dreaded sunny day.

1861. Seems so long ago,but isn't really. Like, there's a cemetary by the skatepark here. and there are guys that died around the late 1800's. The civil war.
PS that band The Civil Wars. So crap. Their name sucks. and their music does too. like. dude. I really don't like this Neo Hillbillie Blue grass stuff. Just not feelin' it. NEXT

4,5,6
Those ones. are the best out of this post. Looks great. It would be nice to sandwich some of these negatives and make prints.

Emilie. what are you majoring in?
I'm thinking about majoring in Francophone studies. Since French language is like something I can really get into and I've got along good with my professor I had for a semester and my teachers I had in the past. and I also ask lots of questions and actually am involved in class. I really think math is cool, but. My brain needs more time to make connections. I do envy people that are good at math. O WELL

How many of us have ran into the flesh and bones of our Overlord?

In all honesty. Instagram does kind of drain my work. Like I focus kinda on Instagram when I could just shoot something with film. or my cell phone pics go to insta instead of Tumblr. but. I've been kinda lazy. I have like a roll sitting on my dresser and two rolls more than half full. so. soon I'll update my tumblr or w/e. Man. Instagram is so cray-c

Ed on insta. Now my heart is full.

fresh met ed at the emerica premiere, dude even posted some sock-off photos and another one with both fresh and ed grinning at the camera.

although the first time fresh actually met ed was at the fallen premiere in SD.
fresh just said what up and asked ed about where he skated now that the hb park was demolished.

I'm studying to become a teacher in Oslo. Jgonz: Francophone studies sounds cool, you should use the opportunity to travel to France. I really want to go to south France, but not the posh party places. Roadtripping in west Europe is very interesting and fun, I recommend it.

All you guys who met Ed are lucky. I have never even been to any of his art shows. About a year ago he had a show in a gallery in Denmark. Thats about a days travel by train. I was planning to go for a weekend, but I was right in the middle of a break up when it came around and I had to find a new place. So that screwed that whole plan right up. The next time he has a show in scandinavia or england I will do my best to get there.

Fresh: I am commenting on this board so I don't have to read and analyze another story today.

Met Ed in Ghent, Belgium.
Think I was a bit shy back then.
Later I realized there´s no reason to be.
I would totally slap on his ass now.
Posted By: S on May 3rd, 2012 at 06:44AM PST
I prefer shy S.
Posted By: ed on May 3rd, 2012 at 11:26AM PST
Tempster, Tempster I was only joking...

I would never slap on your ass, sir.
Posted By: S on May 3rd, 2012 at 11:47AM PST
I thought ed would be more open to homo erotic behaviour.
#TMST

A teacher?Little kids?

Crap. I knew I was forgetting somebody. Frescito. S.
Yep. I commented last night while doing homework that's due today. I just finished some paper and about to turn it in right now.
After next week. Summer tiiiiime. I've been skating lately. feels good to be back on the board. but. still suck.

I've never met Ed. I would imagine it to be weird though. It's like knowing a person without really knowing them. I think this blog only scrapes the surface of Ed's life. Then again I just don't know.

Dan Lu got Covs! That's epic, he should be pro. What about his bro though? Are you gonna put Drew on the team?

Who's gonna be your next Am???? Trevor Ward,Forrest Edwards, Gonzo Hernandez???? I prefer Trevor Ward, he's cool.
Posted By: Josiah on May 4th, 2012 at 09:58AM PST
I love these photos, creepy vibes. The fourth one especially


I felt like a dingus meeting Ed. I met him twice, and both times felt dumb haha. But, overall it was awesome and I know no one\'s gonna read this haha, but you shouldn\'t be nervous about meeting Ed. If you get the chance, say hello.
Posted By: Mike on May 4th, 2012 at 11:54AM PST
Cool, Mike.
