Recent photos from Belgium

Antwerp and Gent are cities that the bulk of tourists overlook in favor or Amsterdam, Brussels, or Paris. But these little Belgian gems are something to check out.

that "photo fail" is amazing, I love her expression and the fact she is mostly out of the frame only makes it better.

That's a shit load of shoes hanging. lol

That chicks face is priceless. She totally sees you taking a photo.

The mobile meth lab is my favorite pic.

Ermagerd. lol I know a chick that always spells stuff like that.

Hows the leg Ed?

I wanna see a full part of gnarly impossibles. Ed should totally do a trick tip about Impossibles. Do it for the kids. Best impossible in the game.

Please excuse my absence from these comments overlord. I've been busy with school and stuff. Anyway, it's finally my summer break some now I'm free to just go to work and not have any homework or anything. Less tied down. That's why i've been mentally absent from commenting and dropping boring comments, kind of like pawn roll call. anyway, back to scheduled programming

Ed. you mentioned you spend time looking at porn on the internet. What kind? Lately i've been into MILF and stuff. I usually just go to xhamsters. My co worker told me about this website XNXX that is pretty good too. What turns you on, ed?
I feel like some of the safety around hiding here on this website on the internet has worn off, now everybody has internet in their pocket. I dunno, plus people know I comment here. Less inclined to spill my life, kind of unfortunate. Does it annoy you that I email Albert random shit? if you think it's boring i'll stop, hopefully it's just something to LOL at.

Castle. Castle Bam. Kerry Getz. Has anybody played Kerry Getz' iphone app? It looks weird, like early 2000's anime character style and stuff.
Why that does look beautiful, buildings with water flowing. It kind of sucks since the habitat surrounding the body of water has been stripped and instead pollutants are filtered in the water. Not supporting an ecosystem or habibitat but you can argue that it's supporting our ecosystem and that humans are the shit etc. Beautiful but still disgusting.

I love how Goth those caskets look. Their hands are just plastered on too, it loooks. Sell the negative to some Goth band for album art.

Save money once you die and have no use. or was there ever a use. In the cosmic spectrum, doesn't really matter.Live life, get mad, fall in love, then turn back into the elements mashed together from the big bang. Enjoy the ride, YOLO

fourth photo, tree branch. Imagine a whole exhibit with nothing but tree branches. would be annoying, but then I would wonder why I'm annoyed then I would be interested in the art. Totally making me reflect. Tree branch against mathematically designed and stacked by humans brick wall. Both objects 3d but parallel to each other. The search for perfection of humanity and the organic presence of trees/life.

Happy choad.

I was watching this porn where two guys were fucking a girl, and one guy had dorky ass new balances on. I think I tweeted the pic. anyway. as a skater I stare at peoples footwear. even in porn. What ruins porn more: shoes on or condom on?

HANG THE DJ
I mouthed the lyrics to myself. thank you for that moment.

Foto phail. it's what makes us humans. so we need computer hardware implanted in our brains. will we choose to remain ignorant and plateau as a society or will we incorporate technology to the point we can't exist as we do without it? I think it will happen, inevitable. Evolution, if it increases your fitness then people will do it. Cyborg guy could calculate things in a second. survival. Let's take a moment to reflect on yourself, appreciate your own ignorance and stupidity. It's what makes us human and special. What separates you from the device you're reading this on.

PHoto is great with the kid. The pool of water, reflection, and massive building. ok, back the the nature thing. The person is reflecting, could be literally or emotionally but it was invoked by the body of water. nature. you know. like what have we constructed etc.

Graffiti and lovers. that photos is great too. Graffiti, art, vanity, love, two humans giving each other attention instead of the world on one person. what a graffiti artist wants. their tag to run, people of the world to notice. a cry for incorporation into the masses or a fuck you. probably a fuck you.

Am I rambling too much. probably. anyway. that Winogrand show at SFMOMA. It was sick, right? I really liked it, all the vintage goodness. You probably stood in a place where I stood staring at a photo. trip on that sucka.

Jgonz, I often think about how technology will effect evolution. Will it hinder our evolution, or will we use it to attempt to speed up the process and go down the cyborg road?
I assume the latter will be attempted but ultimately the former will probably prevail.
Fuck, we will probably nuke ourselves out of existence because humans are ignorant and hateful


I got a new job and so far everyone thinks I am a dick for openly not wanting to be friends with coworkers outside of work, is that really so bad?

Tenant- Are these people lame as hell?
Posted By: Mike on May 11th, 2013 at 08:05PM PST
Yeah, I like one guy there who told my supervisor she looks like honey boo-boo though.
They consider themselves a family and it sort of creeps me out, I have nothing in common with any of them and wouldnt like to spend a day off hanging out with them

I'm more optimistic. It annoys me when people are like "you see that Idiocracy movie...yeah...that's our future."
first, I feel like everybody thinks that anybody of a different lifestyle is stupid,dumb, retarded etc. When people are amongst a group of like minded people, they're happy. people need to and like to belong to a social circle. As long as somebody is happy, that's all that really matters in life.
second, well I guess you mean evolution in terms of progressing or whatevz. Whatever dimension we go, it's still evolution. If we have data in our brains we can then shift brain power to different activities. I guess it would be cool to see movements come up. like a movement for Organic people or something.

Co workers! I have some cool ones now. I saw Primus with this one dude. It was amaziinnnngg. I was in the pit, jumping and sloshing through an amoeba of people. Pogo-ing right in front of Les Claypool. Getting soaked in sweat. It was great.

I don't have an iPhone right now. My lock button isn't working, so I sent that shit into Apple. It's different bro. no Instagram and Twitter checking. Old school life.

Oh yeah, another of my co-workers from Orange County said he used to shop at Mothers all the time. And his girlfriend used to see the overlord every once in a while.
Small world.

By evolution I mean any sort of mutation of the species, wondering if we are locked into this particular one now that life is so convenient for so many and we seem to have maybe found a comfortable mutation.
I feel like as technology progresses people will definitely attempt to move human brain data to a computer/robot, doubt it would ever become mainstream or our future, but a part of it nonetheless

Idiocracy is such a ridiculous extreme, I can\'t stand that movie, so corny in my opinion.
I am somewhat pessimistic about the future, but not at all in that way, just a little worried about our species\' never ending history of war
Enough negativity though, I am over it...


I used to have some cool co-workers but now i work for a huge chain store and everyone here is miserable, but i have only been here a few weeks, things may shape up for the better


Primus! Crazy, I saw that instagram and you looked so close to the stage
