Anniversary trip: Antwerp part 1

We took another day trip from Gent to Antwerp to visit with Tim and Elke from the Tim Van Laere Gallery.

Antwerp, Belgium at night.

Antwerp is also a beautiful, old, yet hip city. Very fashion-forward.

Antwerp means Hand-Toss. There is a statue of a guy tossing the hand of a giant that used his hand to block the river before it was cut off and tossed by the hero.

With Alain from Lomdardia vegetarian restaurant. The best home-made vegan whipped cream in the world. Tim and Elke arranged a private dinner for Deanna and me! After Lombardia closed we went there and knocked on the closed gate which opened up to an empty restaurant, and the lively owner Alain was there preparing food for us and regaling us with celebrity stories! What a special treat! Thanks you guys!

MMMM vegan whipped cream!

I've been getting Compassionate living magazine in the mail, it's pretty sweet cause their is a story about a dairy farm in Hart,Texas that got a lawsuit about animal cruelty.

Hart, Texas is only 25 mins away from where I live, so I was tripping out.

Do you guy's remember when Oprah had that big lawsuit in Amarillo, Texas?? I only live 45 mins away from there.

I'm so tired of beef.

that city looks cool and a semi-viscous name to boot. thats sick that you got to be in that restaurant with nobody else.
Hopefully your fashion shoot is awesome!
Josiah you got some fucked up factories nearby huh. I like how, I'm pretty sure, you got fired from one just for shooting pics. such a ridiculous reason for dismissal. When they came to you to be fired you should've said: "where's the beef" with an accompanying shoulder shrug.

I will eventually. It's really good money. My town is basically running off the beef plant. Half my town works there. I almost got fired for uploading a video to youtube of some carcasses but they gave me a second chance. They found that I wasn't a threat I guess, they were telling me their going to investigate me and what I did was really serious. The security is really tight ya know. I've heard that PETA people have been trying to sneak in as USDA guys and take pictures and stuff. They did suspend me though.

On the news the other day I heard that PETA was trying to get Turkey, Texas to change their name, kinda wild, I live about an hour away from Turkey.

Who's stoked?

I watched Poppalardo's slam like 20 times. and BA's kickflip like 10 times too.
Waiting for Olson's part too. but I guess he's filming for the Vans video too.

Elijah Berle is gonna give all the 'core skaters boners in their dickies. No beanie can cover that tent.

Josiah lives so close to the meat meccahs.
Ed, I tried this Thanksgiving. I was gonna buy a Tofurkey or a little single serving since I was by myself. but Safeway didn't have any. Ended up getting this hot dog equivalent of turkey breast.
I live for mashed potatoes anyway.

PS Josiah's turtle boy video was the super funny. the acting was seriously pretty good. ha. narrating out loud to yourself.

Facebook keeps suggesting Albert Hering to me as somebody I know. Will he ever make an appearance here?

Thanks for the history lesson. Hand toss.
Could make a masturbation joke. could.

New York times? Taking over Terry R's job?
Moving up.

I was looking at your photobooks I have.
The photos, are so crisp. makes my mamiya camera look shitty. plus making prints takes a long time.

i'm tired. good night.
