Gent and London in May 2010

Some B&W from our last trip to Europe in May and June. I'm off to an island for a few days, so this post will have to hold you over until Saturday.

An Island? Australia? The land of toasted white people...seriously. Most of the Australian people I've met, they're like kinda orange-ish,toasted people.

I want one of those spiked Nazi helmets. Maybe Glenn Beck would like one too..whatever, they can just borrow them from Ann Coulter.

The Creampied Pooper.
Another title to a fictional porno in my mind.

i met an Australian Guy at a party two nights ago in a tiny university town in Germany. I think he was there because he was chasing after a girl he wanted to bang. He told me he had been traveling for 4 months and he mostly just talked about how drunk he'd been getting. Later that night, I saw that girl he wanted straddling some other dude on a patio chair while he was giving her a hickey. Dude was bummed.

Girls love stories about how drunk you get. Don't they? And who wants to be with the ones that do?

No new posts. How are hookers and Nazis supposed to hold me over until Saturday. jk

I need to start taking my camera with me when I go to places. When ever I go somewhere I always see something I want to take a picture of.

I\'ve never meet an Australian, but I have meet and orangish person.

The Stay Gold premiere was bonkers. Leo and Reynolds made my cry. I'm so amped that guy is on Toy Machine! Westgate breaks it off. Suski has a break-out part. So good. Jerry Hsu gets busted up. Heath does the mega-ramp. Leo melts your face off by the end of his part.
