popular mechanics for broken hearts

i get back from the road trip realizing that i dont have any pictures of the incredible omnibus.
i decided to take one the next day right before i wash it up.i decided to use this accordion style polaroid camera thinking that its shady enough there wont be many light leaks into the camera.
my mistake.
if you look at the picture below you can tell that i underestimated the film in this camera.
remember when marty mcfly travels through time in back to the future ?
thats what my bus looks like in that picture.

faster !! we have to reach 88 !!

click to enlarge and witness the omnibus tear ass through time.

R.I.P pipi


yesterday my cockatoo pipi died of respiratory failure due to complications with her antibiotics she was taking for her yeast infection. pipi's death came so suddenly. she seemed be doing good despite the feather loss and the plastic cone around her neck to keep her from spreading the yeast infection.

pipi was everything to my family. she was my moms baby. she was an alarm for when someone was at the front door. she was a mentor for a little blue budgie named arturo. she taught him all her whistles and more.

pipi will be missed greatly

here is pipi whistling her favorite Tchaicovsky song 1812 Overture while she gets tea bagged by her favorite blanket buddy.

im always feeling like mr. inbetween

i recall at the end of it all you were on your knees and i was standing tall. but is my memory deceiving me? was i hanging there while you prayed for me? remember how when the show was done, we were dancing and singing and having some fun, then i heard you speak, your voice was bleak--- "what we forget we must repeat." r-e-m-e-m-b-e-r, r-e-m-e-m-b-e-r. i remember the tricks of the trade, who got left behind and who made the grade, and i don't need the pages of some master plan to tell me what to do or tell me who i am. but when all is said and all is done, under the yellow glow of a setting sun, it really doesn't matter what you have done, you are blind and deaf and dumb. r-e-m-e-m-b-e-r, r-e-m-e-m-b-e-r. i remember an endless space and the tolling bells of some holy place. is it a dream that comes back to me or a memory that i can barely see? not the voices that haunt my mind of the friends and lovers i have left behind. what i see, what comes back to me, is a place i cannot find.


some of you maybe not know one of the greatest games in the world other then D&D is a little game called mastermind. its a game of chance, adventure, spite, and glory. If you are color blind please dont even attempt to play.

The objective is simply to find the correct sequence of colors that the other player has layed out behind the gray wall of doom. Its super fun and challenging. This game is great but if you are like me and have lame friends that just want to play video games then it might be hard to find another player.

The solution to this problem is easy.
electronic mastermind !

i picked this up at the local thrift store the other day. i was kinda surprised to find this but im kinda sad to say its not as fun as the analog mastermind. i bought it mainly for the rad cover of the box it came in.

im guessing that is the distinguished mastermind looking smart in his suit who is accompanied by his sexy mod Asian female concubine. i think that picture is worth at least 6 bucks.
tho unhappy with the game itself i think im going to get rid of it. i recently seen two on ebay going for a buy it not price of 70 bucks. Is this games really worth that much ? or are those sellers just douche bags ? only mr. own knows :/
if anyone wants it just ask.
