We are on our way back from Washington, looking for a bite to eat, and what do we see but a flying saucer sticking out of a mobil mart. We had to stop and check I out. What we found were little green men running around all over the store abducting maniquens. It was awesome.

He was such a fun baby! We cant wait to take more pictures of him in a few months.

Brett was sent the funniest Craig’s List ad, and we just had to share:

NINJA HAULER: 2005 Nissan Xterra – $12900 

Date: 2008-12-04, 5:15PM MST

OK, let me start off by saying this Xterra is only available for purchase by the manliest of men (or women). My friend, if it was possible for a vehicle to sprout chest hair and a five o’clock shadow, this Nissan would look like Tom Selleck. It is just that manly. 

It was never intended to drive to the mall so you can pick up that adorable shirt at Abercrombie & Fitch that you had your eye on. It wasn’t meant to transport you to yoga class or Linens & Things. No, that’s what your Prius is for. If that’s the kind of car you’re looking for, then just do us all a favor and stop reading right now. I mean it. Just stop. 

This car was engineered by 3rd degree ninja super-warriors in the highest mountains of Japan to serve the needs of the man that cheats death on a daily basis. They didn’t even consider superfluous nancy boy amenities like navigation systems (real men don’t get lost), heated leather seats (a real man doesn’t let anything warm his butt), or On Star (real men don’t even know what the hell On Star is). 

No, this brute comes with the things us testosterone-fueled super action junkies need. It has a 265 HP engine to outrun the cops. It’s got special blood/gore resistant upholstery. It even has a first-aid kit in the back. You know what the first aid kit has in it? A pint of whiskey, a stitch-your-own-wound kit and a hunk of leather to bite down on when you’re operating on yourself. The Xterra also has an automatic transmission so if you’re being chased by Libyan terrorists, you’ll still be able to shoot your machine gun out the window and drive at the same time. It’s saved my bacon more than once. 

It has room for you and the four hotties you picked up on the way to the gym to blast your pecs and hammer your glutes. There’s a tow hitch to pull your 50 caliber anti-Taliban, self cooling machine gun. I also just put in a new windshield to replace the one that got shot out by The Man. 
My price on this bad boy is an incredibly low $12,900, but I’ll entertain reasonable offers. And by reasonable, I mean don’t walk up and tell me you’ll give me $5,000 for it. That’s liable to earn you a Burmese-roundhouse-sphincter-kick with a follow up three fingered eye-jab. Would it hurt? Hell yeah. Let’s just say you won’t be the prettiest guy at the Coldplay concert anymore. 

There’s only 69,000 miles on this four-wheeled hellcat from Planet Kickass. Trust me, it will outlive you and the offspring that will carry your name. It will live on as a monument to your machismo. 

Now, go look in the mirror and tell me what you see. If it’s a rugged, no holds barred, super brute he-man macho Chuck Norris stunt double, then contact me. I might be out hang-gliding or BASE jumping or just chilling with my ladies, but I’ll get back to you. And when I do, we’ll talk about a price over a nice glass of Schmidt while we listen to Johnny Cash. 

To sweeten the deal a little, I’m throwing in this pair of MC Hammer pants for the man with rippling quads that can’t fit into regular pants. Yeah, you heard me. FREE MC Hammer pants. 

Rock on. 






Here are a few pictures from the San Diego Thread show.  Brett and I went with our good friend and amazing photographer Stew.  It was my first time to the Tread show.  Brett and Stew had been a couple years ago.  There were several very cool booths.  The Poster List.com was one of my faves. They had some really neat artwork, so that booth grabbed my attention for a bit.  The car belt buckles definitely had Brett’s name all over them, but sadly they did not have one with a 69 Cadillac Deville so it was not meant to be.  I love the picture of the little red guy.  We found him on our walk back from the Tread show.  He was painted on this hideously amazing green wall in Down Town San Diego.  Overall the Tread Show was cool but I’m not sure it was worth the $10 to get in.

A little bit about us,

We met 2 years ago at photography school. Brett likes to tell the story that we met at a bar, but really a mutual fried brought us together and introduced us at Old Kings in Santa Barbara. We love cars ( old and new), dogs ( big and small) but we have 3 small ones at the moment, which is entirely my doing. Road trips are a thing we look forward to. We managed not to kill one another after 3 weeks in the car up and down the pacific coast. And actually, next week we are taking a quick road trip up to Seattle to shoot a wedding, visit a good friend, and squeeze in a couple days of driving along the Washington, Oregon coast, stopping at random to take pictures. Life is good!
