King Buzzo — The Machine Kills Artists Tour

The Palace - 06/23/2014 - Missoula, MT

"I have never known anything like the suddenness of this change. Compare it with the experience of flying from London and landing in Bombay — from freezing winter to eighty-degree heat — at two in the morning in January. Even a change as dramatic as that is gradual: a nine-hour flight; a long and slow descent; taxiing round the airport to the gate; immigration, baggage claim, leaving the terminal. Typically it’s an hour and a half before you find yourself out in the Indian night with its smell of wood smoke and the sense of vast numbers of people still asleep. Whereas here, one moment we were traveling at 140 mph and the next we had stopped, the hatch opened and we had entered another world with its own rules, cultures, norms and purposes." — Geoff Dyer

"Waiting under a shelter at the Lewis and Clark Monument in Council Bluffs, Iowa, it isn’t just that I enjoyed the moment — driving rain that surged, ebbed, and surged; the concussions of lightning and thunder; the wet, earthy smell of the breeze that swept through; or even the nearby cardinal, bright red like a Christmas berry against the green, who sang on uninhibited by weather — it was that I had the time to merely linger throughout and be part of the spectacle: a traveler, his journey highlighted by storm."

This evening’s outing I dedicate to Henry David Thoreau, who died on this date in 1862. I didn’t exactly find a lot of nature near my hotel, but he’d have appreciated the looking, and the quality of the saunter.   #omaha #nebraska #walking #thoreau (at Keystone Trail 78th & Cass)

This is turning out beautifully. My wife is a fashion designer. Between making stuff to sell, she also does what amounts to fashion art projects roughly quarterly. This is part of her latest, which is going to debut next week. I snapped this with my cell phone this morning, because I don’t know if I’m supposed to show it to anyone yet, but screw it.
It’s a jacket, obviously, which she designed. It is made of brain-tanned buckskin, which she acquired from a friend of ours who does all the skinning and tanning herself. Another Native artist friend provided the beadwork. The rest is canvas (it was originally going to be all buckskin, which was a little cost prohibitive at the time). It looks fucking great, if you ask me. I can’t wait to see the entire thing finished.
I’m told if I put three deer in the freezer, our friend will not only drop everything to come skin them as soon as I get them out of the woods, but also teach Julia (my wife) how to do the tanning. Those three deer are about what it would take for her to make me my own buckskin jacket. How can I possibly not shoot (*ahem*) for that?!

Thanks to a tip from @theroamer I found a nice bit of Southern California hill country to ramble in not twenty minutes from my hotel. These outings can be a lifesaver on shitty work trips, so my gratitude is immense!   #itsgoodtoknowpeople #hiking #california (at Top Of Turnbull Canyon)
