Incredible video shot yesterday on the north edge of Bastrop State Park in Texas, a place I visited several times each year as a kid. All but about 100 acres of the 6,000-acre park have been blackened by fire. To everyone in central Texas right now, please be safe.
One of my favorite web sites I’ve stumbled onto lately is the wonderfully edited Fuck Yeah, Tattoos! People send in photos of their tattoos with a small explanation and that’s pretty much it, on and on for thousands of images. I’m not really a tattoo person, I don’t have any, nor am I in the market, but as an intensely visual person I’m fascinated with what people decide to permanently etch into their skin, for better or worse (this site definitely has a bit of the good and the maybe not so good). Also, the tattoo industry could really use a few good type consultants.
