We have not done any proper navel-gazing posts here in a while, and with a new year on the calendar about to flip over, it's a good excuse to do it. Interviews I love doing interviews, and this year I conducted three that are well-worth reading if you misse...

This one time, I went there with my brother and sister-in-law. My BIL was wearing mismatched plaids. Why? I don't know why. He just was. It's America, for crying out loud. My laissez-faire attitude, it seems, was not shared by one shrill older woman, a self-described "fashion consultant" who verbally ripped my BIL a new b-hole because of his fashion faux-pas. IT WAS WACK.

So, it's a park. What is has to do with buildings, other than your average city park restroom, or trades, I have no clue. Some rough looking fellows were playing basketball (possibly juggalos), so I just kept driving, but I sure don't think it's the kind of place I'd want to hang out for any long period of time.

I love to sit next to grave markers with my pipe, smoke my cherry tobacco, and regale passersby with tales from my rambunctious youth, when no woman was too loose and no jam was too tight; I have lived, lusted, and loved and if you'll bend your ear my way, you may come away with a renewed appreciation for this life!
