Comic Tuesday



It's been a while - but here's an Illustrator who has some of his comics on his Tumblr. Richard Sala has a clean, whimsical style. Enjoy!

Photoblog Friday

I've been silently admonished for too much motorcycles and not enough history in this feature, so this week I've found a way to combine the two. In the summer of 1953 Geoffrey Gander motorcycled around Europe and took some photos. His son compiled them into a wonderful photoblog - enjoy!

True scooter porn this week (and yes, I know it's Tuesday already) for the photoblog. Bikeexif has drool-worthy custom bikes. Click through for articles about each. Enjoy!

Comic Tuesday

A graphic novel this week, rather than a serial. Who Takes Out the Garbage? is a moving tale of two young ladies and things that go bump in the night. Enjoy!

Take Out Whidbey Island.

A nice video to go along with this weeks music. The Pirates of the Caribbean is a nice country rock band. Enjoy!

Photoblog Friday

I rarely feature Flickr photostreams on Friday - there are some amazing streams, but I simply don't like the format and they don't qualify as photoblogs in my mind. However, Nightmare's Fear Factory has a very amusing set of photos. Taken at the moment of terror from one of their Halloween displays, the raw emotion is quite amusing.

Scary Video

I try not to post a lot of political views on the blog, but this video struck home in too many ways to ignore. It makes me very scared for the future.

Occupy Whidbey Island?

Music Monday

One of the first concerts Rene & I ever saw was Harry Chapin, live at Whitworth College in Spokane. Harry played solo that evening - his band was stranded in Seattle, and he had flown in separately with just his practice guitar. He gave us one hell of a concert anyway.

This video is from the same time period as that tour - and catches Harry at his best. Very similar to how we saw him. One of our best storytellers, he is missed.
