kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

That box holder looks pretty nice, you should probably build a case for it...

let the record show I was always concerned the silk choobs would look a wee bit lacklustre.
but after some well intended guidance the cc informed me I should rest easy as this whole endeavour is of little interest.

whilst in caledonia we stood upon the bridge overlooking the river.
dusk had fallen on a close and sticky summer evening and I slowly began to realise we were far too late. tonight we would go wanting.

we marvelled at the moths and praying mantis banging against the slowing burning bright street lamps.
eventually the lamps were black in shadow. if not for moonlight we would be in near darkness.
a buzzing din would invite itself back into my mind only to fade once more, then repeat.

the cc looked so forlorn staring over the railing at the pull of the grand... almost as if he was trying to envision us being swallowed by the mythical undertow beneath.
I had no choice but to ask of the predicament troubling him.

'california,' he said, blubbering into his ice cream and cola.
'I thought you said california.'

I already saw (like) two of those (or some shit) on the Tweeters and about 4 of them on the Ghey Books just this morning.

This place sucks.

I don't know why anyone would bother posting such trite bullshit here.

So lame.

it had started to drizzle. the bastards, we were quoted a light snow.
my hands were cold, my pockets empty and my nose was starting to run again. I'd have to remember to dab as opposed to wipe to prevent another fortnight of chaffing. two weeks of not looking down my nose at our fellow comrades seemed like a hardship of sorts.

the car keys were back at the motor. I prayed that no one would ever realise we just leave the key on the front tire at all times.
you just never knew when one was quietly dying to get away from you.


''I think I've had enough of this place'' I said ''and I also think now would be the time to leave."
'pffft. where will you go?'
I thought for a little while before I answered his rhetorical question.

"back to where I'm from, I reckon."
'but you don't even know where that is any more...'
he started to walk away from me. and throwing rocks towards my swing.
I wound in my line to follow him downstream.

we walked mostly in silence. as we do.
staring at the tab bouncing on the back of his rain hood and through intermediate clouds of tobacco smoke I asked him the question I knew he was dreading.

"how will you get on without me?"

'I don't know...' the cc coughed with a hint of hurt in his voice.
'it'll depend on the day, I guess... and the sunny days will be the worst.'

it was the weekend freddie mercury died but neither of us were that bothered.
but it had snowed and it had snowed hard. so therefore I was cold again.
I also felt the lsd had accelerated a blue leg.

"it's going to be a slow drive home in that van." I said over that infamous biting november wind.
and I reiterated afterwards... "are you sure the heat doesn't work? I thought it kicked over earlier."
'I told you... I put some of that irish whiskey in your coffee this morning and remember, everything was dry then."

I watched him light a cigarette. eventually.
and inside I knew he was right. inside my waders I had one blue leg.

suddenly I found the need to complain.
"all these fish are dead. and the ones I do see I don't want."
I looked down at the hundreds of orange squeaking salmon circling around my feet.
he shrugged and looked at the ground. I saw him move his mouth to the side and I could tell that he raised his eyebrows when his cap moved at his brow.

'I brought you here because I wanted to show you this place.' he said. 'this is the place.'
"yeah, but I wanted to fix the van, drop some acid and call those american chicks before they left on monday."
"I just thought it would be better here. the timing's all fucked again."

then the silence. always with the silence. it fills your head full of sand.
well, until someone yelled 'bear'.

"hey!.." I said, catching him up downstream and shaking off the salmon "my leg is blue... look!"
'your mother would say it matches your weeping eyes...' he laughed 'and then she'd ask if you wanted to go home.'
"well I do. and it's not my home. it's the worst place I've ever been..." I cried "take me back to that grey fucking shithole of a city... I'll even sleep in the room with the broken window. you can have the room with the vent."

'wait. I thought you said you went to berlin...' the cc said.
'and to be fair this is the first time in years you've heard your name pronounced properly.'

*****interim*****

couplafew things:

1. that's the way/direction I'm gonna carve those flies. it's the least irritating.
2. I'm gonna splay the underside of the box like a beautiful cohiba ashtray.
3. I started this endeavour 4/20 2013. you cannae make that shit up.
4. I've photos of the entire process including selecting the material in tassie earlier in march. this may include a shitty picture booklet.
f) as truthful as all this may be, this thread is hopelessly fucking retarded.

*****interlude*****

it's true...
