So, I thought this Karl Strauss was over by Wyndansea. GPS disagreed. It’s in a secluded (sort of) location at the end of a street right alongside the 5 freeway. I had no idea I was near it until I heard Biggie… and “flamingos” (Sneakers, 1992).

Someone asked me if I was living the life.

Not yet, man. But, what’s up with the growlers…?

I used to work at a cafe inside Borders with a guy named Robbie. He was always on some metaphysical/philosophical topic. One night he was talking about a book he read where the author said something like, “when you’re walking around not paying attention, what if you could note down the things that stood out to you subconsciously.”

Robbie went on to say, “what if you walked through this bookstore and without thinking about it listed the cd and book covers that stood out to you, not the things you were looking at? What if those things that you caught subconsciously, if put together, were a message?”

Interesting. I pay too much attention to pick things out subconsciously.

But, what if we simplify that and pick 5 photos out of our archives that stand out to us at that particular time?

rbst_book_sbxIMG_0979 1.JPG – I found this photo tonite during my weekly archive.

I had this view of an empty lot; beyond that an empty parking lot; beyond that a building; beyond that infinity. I used to go out on the balcony and just stare at this view. Bladerunner always came to mind. It’s since become obstructed, since maybe last sumer or fall. I forget.

Now there’s a wall where that view was, brightly lit. I can’t look over it or around it – just at it. I kept telling myself that it’d be a while before that wall came up. Then, boom; there it was; just like that.

I need a NAS…
