More Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade!

These are more photos from the last night of Three Rivers Festival. I had so much fun doing these, I'm going to do them again next year.

What's the horn for? For surprise shots?
Now that it's cooled down to a chilly 85 degrees, he decided to bust the wool hat out.
That's how he rolls.
He would run, Forrest, run, but he's looking for Jenny.

The economy is so bad, she couldn't afford the other half of her jeans.
Who wore it better? Tie?

Still More Fashion Parade!

Dude, I know that's all the pocket change you have, but that still won't buy you a lap dance in Fort Wayne.
This guy ruined a perfectly fine teenage boy outfit by wearing a tacky, air-brushed trucker hat with the word "Florida" on it. (Sorry about the blurry picture.)
More Fashion Parade to come!

More Fashion Parade

Like, we couldn't leave the house until ALL of our hair was totally, like coordinated!
The chick on the left is blissfully unaware of the homeless guy who is taking a nap right next to her. Oh, that's your dad? Never mind.

First Ever Tee Arr Eff Fashion Parade!

I need to get a subscription to Vice magazine. I really enjoy it, and even though I may be too old for their demographic, I get a kick out of it.

If you love people watching, you'll get a kick out of this. And you will probably enjoy Street Boners, a book filled with pictures of people in interesting (or awful) outfits and commentary from people about fashion.

Coordinated Couples are Cute!

Then I got an email from a friend who said I might want to tone down my hypothetical question, “what happens if a loved one gets cancer? What are you going to do?” The reason? Because one of HIS friends has a spouse who has cancer. Oopsie.
I guess I could be a real bitch and post on this person’s Facebook account that “no one lives forever; guess your spouse should get the affairs in order and enjoy the time you both have left” but I’m not going to do that. In a discussion about health care with a former co-worker, he actually said to me, when I posed my hypothetical question, “we all have to die sometime.” I swear to you he said this. I wish he could thank me for my Medicare deductions that will probably save his life when he winds up with cancer, but this sponge-nosed asshole retired and hopefully I’ll never have to see his insensitive …

The Rivertown Swimsuit Edition!

By the way, I was the inspiration for Lyn Juarez.

Plugging for Rivertown

Image Robert Enders does a funny comic called "Rivertown." You can also see it in the Fort Wayne Reader. Here's a few panels.
