That is Monster at Denny’s. He came with me to see Run Robot Saturday night.  Run Robot is a kick ass rock band. This is Mike.  He is the lead singer and is also the bass player for another of my favorite bands, Binky Bianca .

This is Chet.  He plays guitar for Run Robot & Trick Bag (who I have yet to see live) & he is also one of my favorite photographers.

They’re both awesome people who I am grateful to count as friends.  A wise, talented, successful musician* recently said to me, “Wow, you really support your friends.”  I responded by telling him that I really love music and am afraid that live music is going to die. Also, I really believe that these friends of mine are incredibly talented.  In most cases, I became their friends after I already was a fan of the music.

Here is Binky from Binky Bianca at Uncle Mike’s on Mischief Night.  Her talents are too many to count.

*Rivers Cuomo rocks.  Let it be stated here that I cannot get enough of the “Words & dreams & a million screams…” part of “Across The Sea.”  wow.

SAPCC #46 – Justapose/Juxtaposition

1 – Sometimes I have the perfect picture for the challenge & I just don’t execute it properly.  This is one of those.  My friend ordered this dinner at the bowling alley.  I took two shots but it was my turn to bowl so…

Monster Goes To The Carnival

Every spring, they set up a carnival in the parking lot of the already over crowded Stop & Shop parking lot.  This year, Monster came along.

The Monsters Are Coming!!!


This month’s SAPCC challenge is “monsters.”  Sully (pictured above) is an outtake of my monster shots.  I am in the process of arranging them & will probably upload them tomorrow. 

Speaking of monsters, your child is not cute.  It is not at all adorable to let it scream in the middle of a restaurant.  It is not precious that it likes to throw food, crayons, silverware, ketchup or anything else on the floor.  Also, if your child cannot yet speak, do not expect me to be able to translate whatever the heck it is saying to me.  Furthermore, do not force your child to say “please” when you are completely incapable of doing the same.  Thank you 🙂
