It was war they wanted, and war they got, but they wilted in the heat when my uzi got hot.

Sweep the leg, Johnny.

I've always loved this photograph of Belle And Sebastian. It is timeless and classic and makes me want to be there.

There is nothing quite as satisfying as finding something after wanting it for so long, especially when it's meaningful, nostalgic, and an item you once had and lost.
But with that sigh of relief, moment of elation, and temporary quieting of the mind comes the inevitable, insatiable need for the next thing to fill that Paypal shaped hole.
Now if I can just find the Rector corduroy shorts from the same period in either yellow and red or yellow and blue, I'm not picky.

Red Max Schaaf 4Q Conditioning edition Vans Syndicate in fireproof suede/leather. When all the stores are sold out of your size, sometimes you have to dig a bit on the interweb, and once I spent a day kickin' around in the black ones, I just had to buy these.  An amazing update on the half Cab, and one of the top 5 best skate shoes of all time. Period.

The black ones.

And I'd be lying if I told you that having a choice of these two sets to rock on the Trump didn't sweeten the deal. Now if I can only get Max to paint my tank and fender...
