Executive Contour

"Now being a barber is a lot like being a barman or a soda-jerk; there's not much to it once you've learned the basic moves. For the kids there's the Butch, or the Heinie, the Flat Top, the Ivy, the Crew, the Vanguard, the Junior Contour and, occasionally, the Executive Contour."
- Ed (Billy Bob Thornton), The Man Who Wasn't There,

A hodge podge of good design, music ephemera, offbeat Americana, ad critiques, misty water colored memories of places I've lived and the Minnesota Twins.

I also run a little country blog called Both Kinds of Music.

I have posted a few shots of winter fire logs and chopped wood . This is the man behind all that chopped wood. My grandpa (on my dads side) is 90 years old. Still cutting wood and keeping busy . When I asked to take a photo of him , he asked me “can I hold my axe?” So here he is . 90, holding his axe and eating a plum . For any of you lumber jacks out there , you’ll notice that he is using a double bit felling axe rather than and standard splitting maul. Much tougher but keeps him in shape . He raised my dad well, and in turn my dad raised me well . I’m really thankful for my family

I better start making plans…

Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue - Where The Wild Roses Grow

Fish is disgusting. Fish don’t even like fish, that’s why they’re frowning.

Look at a fish, he’s frowning because he’s like ‘oh, what’s that smell? It’s me, I’m a fish.’

What’s the best compliment you can give fish? It’s to say that it’s not fishy. You never hear ‘get the hamburger, it’s not burgery.’

Peak Fall Colors

Laughing at “never” 
Looking forward to hiking around CT for the next month

I appreciate that my fall colors are now brown b/c that’s just the general color of the foilage now, where as they were most definitely orange for the majority of my life.

Kiss
Art of Noise featuring Tom Jones
China Records/UK (1988)

Boy, the things we thought were cool. I always thought it was lame that the Art of Noise used the bridge as a plug for their “greatest hits”. And it’s still creepy that TJ changed the lyrics from “Women, not girls, rule my world” to “Women and girls”.

Want to go back.

Words can’t accurately describe the first time you reach the edge and take in the whole view. You’ve never seen such a thing.

#SundayFunnies (at Meltdown Comics & Collectibles)

We would do this thing as kids where we would bring our comics to someone’s house throw them on the floor and mix them all up. Then we’d shut our eyes and pick them up as a means of “trading”.
