REQUIRED VIEWING: Josh Keyes, where you been all my life? Beautiful, restrained, peculiar paintings that get you thinking about the animals, and their habitats, and march of urbanization. Really amazing stuff.

HEY BOMBERS, LEAVE THOSE FREIGHT CARS ALONE: A bunch of freight cars, unmolested from graffiti litterbugs.

A RANT: Call me a dick; call me what you will, but, I’m flat-out fed up when it comes to all the arm’s-length horse shit graffiti littering all the freight cars that roll by the shop. Futile “style wars” going on in the dark of the night. Means nothing in the end, fellas. Nothing. “Matters of respect” and other pitiful pursuits. Yawn, motherfucker, yawn. You got something to say? Well, say it in a creative way…and not by destroying stuff. Grow some balls and play that hand in the real world like the rest of us. Funny little games played in the night. Yawn.

It’s pretty pathetic that model train cars are the only place to find these beauties as they once were:

01. “Ontario Northland.”
02. “Illinois Central.”
03. “Bangor & Aroostook Refrigerator.”
04. “Mars Snickers.”

SOME GREAT IMAGES IN HERE: Michael Wilson photography. Somewhere in there, you’ll find an photo set he did with the Replacements around the time of All Shook Down. Forgotten, sure, but great nevertheless. Ah, hell, here it is. So good.
