It is the man of the only hair I'll trust to do my realty the way I want it.
I can get reputed to be a Problem Client however much, but I do not care: I demand stiffness and stickiness from the hairdos of any of my realty men.

There is safety at the center of the continent, I keep telling myself.
Next election he's gonna win w/ a massive and unprecedented majority I predict.

The Pillsbury Doughboy, glbtq-lgbtq pride parade participation.
All of the happiest lgbtq-glbtq households start off their days with humongous bowls of Lucky Charms in milk. There is smiling E. DeGeneres, known for publicity. What a chaotic hubbub of celebration!

In the American packaged foodstuffs business Genera…

Sadness & loneliness of vast spread of grey & barren pavement; bleak bleak bleak downtown Minneapolis.

Naw I'm just kiddin it's a construction site but I wouldn't mind getting my hands onto those green-colored foreground things, they look like they could be fashioned into display stands for something.

Speaking of wooden pallets wrapped in cardboard, I'd l…

Withered-up 2 snowmen.

Withered-up 2 snowmen.
They were well-worth somebody's time and efforts don't you agree. I hope that the unseasonable February rain won't kill them off completely, for there is yet a bunch of winter to live through isn't there as it's only yet February.

My gosh I don't think I can bear to think about any more sad stories. Was it a snowplow that did that! Reflectors everyplace.

Buncha cottonwood fluff been deposited in this area.
The seeds of the Populus deltoides trees that are apparently someplace around here are attached to cottonlike strands known as seed hairs. The seeds detach from their trees and beeline directly to small depressions at the edges of paved areas, in a proce…

Rising tower of the home of future bitly peepsjobs.
They'll be selling gourmet-style versions I guess?: Dark-chocolate-raspberry-cayenne flavored ones, or kinds of them encrusted in "edible glitter" or encased in shells of seasalt pretzel, things like that?

Actually this photo's from December 2011, so su…

Makin summer memories in Richfield.

Makin summer memories in Richfield.
Those Minneapolitans who have ever managed to wander into the inner-ring suburb "Richfield, Minnesota" will recognize the atmospherics of this immediately. "Ah yes, Richfield, I have passed through that."

Sometime a person sat down and thought, "Hmm, de…

Lake Smetana!

Lake Smetana!
Likely it's named for either the ethnic sour dairyfood smetana or the Czech composer Bedřich Smetana. From a distance that building back yonder on the right looks vaguely Czech, but too I caught a whiff of what smelled to me like sour dairy coming off th…

I had ~80 multiple exposures of this and I picked this one and dragged all the others to the trash.
What I notice is how the flag's top right corner is kind of bunched up a little bit as it reaches around to touch the lucky 7th stripe, the Maryland stripe. The stripes appear as thunderbolts of Americanism, reaching down from the transmission tower to t…

When your site is the grounds of a drivethru bankteller, the installation of special styles of pavers is almost inherently gonna be a waste of effort, compared to just paving it regular.

We would all hope that even as an American you would be sophisticated enough not to anticipate that you would actually see a literally edenic literal prairie here, doy.

A video of a man standing on the top level of a parking structure, frantically spraying a fire extinguisher at an approaching bank of clouds.
In fact he's only pretending to be frantic.

The action is merely to be described in words on a still-photo website, with an accompanying picture of the locale. That's the conceptual art part of it. Youtube killed performance art by showing too much.…
