I should mention this

If anyone wants any high-res versions of any pictures they find on here, just let me know. I should try to make some desktops one of these days. But until I get that motivated… if you see something you want, drop me a line and I’ll dig through my files and send you the originals.

Peasant’s Quest

This is just like how I remembered it, back in the old days. What a fantastic game. In case you’re not familiar with Peasant’s Quest, get the backstory here.

Clubfoot

And so we left, and meandered over to Clubfoot. Some of you twelvestone folks might recall this place as a stop on our tour of the neighborhood bars. Justin and I shot a game of pool with some guys.

Intersting timing: tonight I reminded Bass of…

On the way to work

Just saw these for the first time today. On a side note: this is on a street where I used to live (Honore), and the mural is on the wall of a restaurant right across the street from the building where I lived. My first meal as an official Chicagoan was at this restaurant (although it’s currently “Las Palmas” and…

Walking Around After Work

Love again: Damen, North and Milwaukee. It’s just this thing I have, I guess. I seem to be drawn to where balloons end up. They suggest such a sad end, always. They’re symbols of celebration and happiness, but to see them after the fact is a bit depressing. Found this on the corner of my street, right at North and…
