The night before Christmas
Tim B. was afraid I wouldn't make five posts in five days but I technically made it since it's before midnight on the west coast. We're watching the Venture Brothers season one DVD that I got for a present - thanks to my brother-in-law Peter! Merry Christmas to some, happy holidays to the rest.

Double or Nothing
Work really took it out of me yesterday so guess what? I missed a post. So, I'll make it a double today. This is what Christmas looks like in San Francisco, a tree in a window near downtown and a graffiti-style Santa painted on the side of a trailer. Thanks to work, the podcast is also delayed. Cross your fingers and it may be up in a couple of days.

Another holiday photo, also from Portland. There is a ton of crazy stuff painted on the windows of this bread factory. There is also a giant rotating loaf of bread on the roof of the place. We peeked inside and saw lots of bread loaves taking a long ride on a conveyer belt. It looked like the people working inside were bored. At least everytime they look out the windows they can see cute bears, Santa Claus and caricature of their boss wishing a "Merry Christmas" to everyone driving by. I'm sure it makes the employees hate their jobs a little less, right? Holiday post number three tomorrow. And maybe a podcast...

You Sleigh Me
Apologies for the bad pun. I simply couldn't resist. I took this shot in Portland while walking around some neighborhood somewhere or another. Not the most awesome display of Christmas spirit what with the extension cord and tree stump. But, I'll give an A for effort. Okay, only five days until Christmas and I will try to post a holiday related photo every day until then. Five posts in five days? Can it be done? I seriously doubt it, but I'll try...

Bowl Me Over
The days of 7-10 splits, benders, blowouts, creepers, curves, fouls, keglers, kingpins, perfect games, spares, strikes and turkeys are over at Grand Central Bolwing in Portland. This tile mural was one of my favorite things I saw while visiting Portland. The inside of the building is gutted and will become who-knows-what. Hopefully they can spare the mural.

The Bronx Is Up and I'm Brooklyn Down
Calling all New Yorkers, I have a photo on display in Brooklyn's Gallery at 3rd Ward.

It's an exhibition of photographs by new, emerging photographers and is the first physical show by group-show.com.

Ground Kontrol To Captain Kirk
Just got back from a rad weekend in Portland. Went to the greatest bar ever called Ground Kontrol. It's chock full of video games, pinball machines and beer. All the oldies and goodies. Galaga, Joust, Space Invaders, Dig-Dug, Centipede, Gorf, Spy Hunter, Pole Position... Sorry SF, we can't pay your parking meters anymore - we used all our quarters in Portland!

I Got You Babe
Who says that San Jose has nothing cool? They have a hockey team, a Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, the Winchester Mystery House and most importantly, a Muffler Man named Babe.
