Modelo is light.
Negro Modelo is dark.
But negro isn't negro.

Was good to not be the star in this scene.
The first place I recall reading that sentiment was in Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance...

“In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame. On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”

Happy Birthday!

I won't bother to read this Middle Finger book. Just a waste of time IMO.

Hemingway - I've read all of his stuff. Can't stand his novels. I especially hate The Sun Also Rises, bunch of fucking spoiled expat brats. The only exception being Cohn who I am glad kicks the shit out of a few of the guys. Brett is a whore, she needs a Jane Fonda ass-fucking with a sharp-ended broomstick. She could be the reason why men beat their wives. Ahem, sorry. I did, however, enjoy Hemingway's non-fiction treatise on bullfighting, Death in the Afternoon.

Tennesse Williams I find boring, I'd rather read a math book.

No, I haven't read it. I haven't read any fiction for years.

And definitely wasn't criticizing anyone or anything, just musing that writing usually isn't as simple and idyllic as it's often portrayed. My dad wrote several legal textbooks and articles, and would get home from The Day Job and lock himself away every night and work on his manuscripts, day after day, year after year.

Funny visual of Grant, btw ;)

Thanks Guys!

I found my camera. Here are a few shots of my B-day ride with Trice and Schizz as promised.













There are lots of places in Durango where you can can ride all day long beautiful curvy new pavement. Sometimes for 30 minutes or more without seeing another vehicle. This is northern Durango NE of Tepehuanes.

The book covers a fascinating subject for most of us guys who like to travel in Mexico, so for that aspect you might read it. It's just not very well done and the end will piss you off, because it's so fake.

I'm not often right, but I've never been wrong.

Meanwhile, back in el bello puerto de "Veracru" (asi como se dicen los jarochos)...

Tropical Storm Barry
(from in front of Trice's favorito lugarcito)



And back in the bar, things have been getting a little strange as we harness the power of the universe...send money, Ace...and do it quickly! The bill is coming!



Another round of these and anyone can see in the dark, walk through walls, become bulletproof, and/or enter an off road rally in Durango!
Or maybe even fly and get pics like the one of the isla!
