The Chronic Sign

I finally had the chance to pull over and snap a photo of this little gem. It has always made me laugh everytime I drive past it on Market Center Blvd. I’m not ever sure how long it has been there, or how long it will stay up, so all the more reason to lock it into a few megapixels. Just thought I’d share the fun.



Why is it so much easier to be taken advantage of in New York than in Dallas? Are we that much nicer here?

Goss Gallery

Yea, I know there’s nothing new about queer + art, but this gallary via Kenny Goss is worth checking out. Since the DMA is not my fave museum in the area, galleries are a nice slice of urbane here in the Wild White Collar West of DFW.

Deep Ellum Shoutout at Iconbuffet


Don’t know if it has anything to do with Dallas or not, but has a beautiful collection of stock icons in 3 color themes called… Deep Ellum…

Aha! Further investigation shows that Firewheel Design is based in Ft. Worth. Check them out!

Deep Ellum Hookah Bar

The Velvet Hookah is a rather newish Deep Ellum place, visited by my friend Tony during the Deep Ellum Arts Festival over the weekend. (Thanks for the photos!) Try the watermelon, says Tony. Uh, I don’t think so.

Seen on the tollway this morning

An H2 ‘stretch limo’. Yikes!

Garish is in the eye of the beholder.

“Go back! Go back!” I whipped my head around to try and catch another glimpse. My fiancé rolled his eyes, but he U-turned and entered the subdivision anyway. It was easy to find the house — we just queued up among the rest of the taillights waiting patiently for their turn to round the cul-de-sac.

I’ve never seen anything like it: 40,000 lights. Over 3 miles of wiring. 92 amps of power. All synchronized to flash and shimmer to “Carol of the Bells” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” (I know, I know, but picture that cute girl from “Love Actually” instead — it quells the nausea). The mechanical types among you will marvel at the “how it’s done” page.

In Austin, the light display to wait in line for is on 37th Street, a blocks-long cosmic Christmas cross between the college students and hippie stalwarts who call Hyde Park home. I thought nothing could top 37th Street — but Jeff and Bridgette Trykoski’s display is right up there.

If you are one of those that mourn the end of the holiday season, go quick while you can and visit this spectacular spectacle in Frisco… and gawk at how one couple with time to kill (and a fondness for outrageous utility bills, apparently) share their Christmas spirit. We’re going back tomorrow night with a truck full of kids — there isn’t anything like a child to make the most blasé cynic appreciate goodwill and a phalanx of sparkly lights.

SuperTarget N.W. Hwy. Saturday 11:30 am


This little cutey was out for the count this weekend. Her Mum kindly let me take her picture. I bet many of us would like to shop in this blissful state.
