Beautiful Cities of the World Collection
Here is another of the special animated creations for the recent drop on OpenSea. Can’t wait to go back here and see the family once NZ opens up again!
Daily Photo – Dallas Double Exposure
This is the amazing place where we had the Dallas Photo Walk! Man, I was so tired that morning; I almost didn’t make it. We had just driven in from New Orleans where we partied a little too hard… then slept on the bus all the way to Dallas. We woke up, and there was a Rolls Royce Ghost outside the bus that was sent by the Ritz-Carlton to ferry us over to their location. The GM was there and everything. We stumbled out of bed and got dressed, but I tell ya what – the whole thing was VERY confusing, but awesome!
Here’s the latest! Machine Elf 36 – Open Heart. I remember laying out in the white sands of the desert at Burning Man on my back in the middle of the afternoon, looking at the sun and blue sky. I was thinking about 1,000 different things and not thinking of them at the same time. Yes, I might have been on acid, but that’s beside the point. Well, not really, because, soon enough, I heard this song “Burning Sun” by Monolink playing about half a mile away from an art car… the sounds vibrated out the desert where I was hearing them… I remember what I saw and I’ve tried to recreate it here.

Best of: Austin!
And next up is the Best of Austin shots! Well, I’m not sure these are the absolute best, but there are few winners in here I haven’t thought about in a while.
I was just listening to a new Joe Rogan podcast and it was cool to hear how he’s moving to Texas. I think he’s just sick of paying taxes to a state that doesn’t take care of itself very well… or maybe I’m just reading between the lines. Probably not, seeing how he just got a $100 mil deal from Spotify. I wish I could talk him into moving to New Zealand! Anyway, here are some of my favorite images of my home state.
I wanted to wish a happy holidays to you! Thanks for coming so often to the blog… it means a lot to me! I’m glad you get some enjoyment out of it as well. 🙂
Daily Photo – My Dad as a Baby!
I don’t post a lot of “family” photos, but when my dad died last year, we went through all the archives and found this one. It’s so weird to see your parents as babies, right? It must have been so weird to have grown up back in the olden days. I don’t know how those kids survived without Youtube and Tiktok. And how did their parents find their way around without GPS? It’s amazing humanity has made it this far.
This was a good one!
Ahhh, sorry to see my dad go. But he had a good one, you know? Loved his kids, raced cars, built golf courses, made people laugh, and generally tried to make things better 😃
I’m back in the USA to attend his ceremony at Sparkman/Hillcrest Funeral Home. As with my dad, all are welcome. I suppose I’ll get up and say some words to celebrate his life and tell some funny stories? That’s how he would have wanted it, I think. A bit of a party and celebration for all that loved him.
It’s all good, you don’t have to say you’re sorry in the comments, I have another idea if you want to comment in the last para. But, first, here’s why you don’t have to say you’re sorry: I’m good with my dad! You all know I’m a zen guy. But, besides that, I had no unresolved issues with him. I knew he loved me. I knew he was proud. And vice-versa on all issues. What else could ya want with your pops?
If you want to leave a comment, why not say some little thing you like about your dad?
Scamming the North Korean Golf Tournament
This is really funny… these two Australian guys pretended to be pro golfers and joined the North Korean Golf Open. Here’s a little video:
Daily Photo – Fearing’s in Dallas
Here’s a photo of a really cool bar and an amazing restaurant that’s right inside the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas. I’ve eaten here about half a dozen times and it’s always outrageously good. I even met Dean Fearing and took his photo about eight years before this… even before he had this restaurant. I didn’t know what a big deal he was!
