Hand model, charging stations

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

When stock photography doesn’t cut the mustard, I become a hand model.

Earlier in the day I ran out to a Meijer grocery store that had all these Tesla charging stations in the parking lot. This is foreshadowing. Because one day VW will finally release that dag-blasted electric bus and I will make it a portable office and work while the sun rises on the Grand Tetons. Those mountains will make a great backdrop to my aged hands.

Also? I have no idea how this shit will work. Maybe Tesla chargers won’t work with a VW and that’s fine. I’ll figure it out.

Rocketman

Sunday, June 2, 2019

It was too nice of a day to be inside and watch a movie but that’s exactly what a group of us did. Luckily, the movie was solid.

Rocketman felt more like a stage musical than Bohemian Rhapsody’s performance based approach. There is also an underlying hook telling Elton’s story here that lent an extra layer of gravitas to the story. Overall? Not as risqué as I expected, favored the subject matter a bit too much, but totally entertaining.

Sleepy Hollow Old Montague Trail

Sleepy Hollow Old Montague Trail, Covington Kentucky. Muddy spots made it a bit rough to traverse, but overall a solid hike.

Bonus? That tiny drop of honeysuckle nectar.

Edie by Ben Lenovitz

Friday, May 31, 2019

Fishs Eddy has an artist in residence painting pets in the window of their New York City store. His name is Ben Lenovitz.

Thor commissioned a painting of Edie. She is still very much hoping someone will feed her treats. That’s how she rolls.

Googly eyes and bugs

My friends leave surprises whenever they visit. It can take months and sometimes years before I find all of them.

The most beautiful train station

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Thor’s train back to New York left in the wee hours of May 29th. I honestly didn’t realize Union Terminal still operated as a (passenger) train station until his visit. And it’s open at these odd hours and you can see the magnificent job they’ve done to preserve and fortify this Cincinnati landmark.

Aladdin at the Drive In

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Before Thor had to jump on a train back to NYC, he had a drive-in on the list of potential things to do.

Double feature of Aladdin and Detective Pikachu at Holiday Auto Theatre up in Hamilton, Ohio.

One of the great things about this drive in? They hand paint promotional signs for every movie. In this case? A smoking lamp. They seriously need a tip jar for their resident artist.

After Thor found a solution to cover up the daytime running lights of a Ford Explorer in front of us, we were able to enjoy the movie. (Shame on Ford for making turning off your friggin’ lights so friggin’ difficult.) I am reminded, everything is better with a button or a knob and not an interface with nested menus.

The movie? It was aight. Hard to top Robin Williams, but the CGI was solid. We didn’t have enough gumption for the second flick. It was time to make the haul home.
