Atlanta Braves @ Florida Marlins
Joe Robbie Stadium
July 9, 1993
I lived in South Florida during the first few seasons of Florida Marlins baseball. We went to about a dozen games in their debut year, including this game that saw John Smoltz pitch 8 innings. Future Phillies in this game included Braves outfielder Ron Gant, who hit his 20th home run of the season in this game. On the Marlins, the lineup included catcher Benito Santiago (1996) and left fielder Jeff Conine (2006) who each spent a year of their career in Philadelphia.

WWE Live (house show)
Mohegan Sun Arena - July 7, 2013
Roberto and I got to meet former two-time WWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund at a WWE house show. He was a cool dude - perfectly normal one minute, but then as soon as they're about to take the photo, he snapped into his crazy "Mr. Backlund" character and put us in a headlock. It seems like he truly enjoys meeting fans and creating memorable moments.

West Hazleton, PA
I stumbled onto this old city bus in the woods behind Fern Court while walking little Harvey earlier today. I'm not sure what year it's from, and I don't know if it's been abandoned or if it's a project that someone is working on, but it truly is a treasure. I'm not a great photographer by any means, but this is one of my favorite photos that I've taken. The overgrown plant life and the aged technology give it a bit of a post-apocalyptic feel that I like very much.

William S. Burroughs and Kurt Cobain
Lawrence, KS (1993)
This photo was taken at Burroughs' home while Cobain was visiting. The two collaborated to produce a spoken word version of a short story called The Junky's Christmas, which was written by Burroughs in 1989. The nearly 10 minute recording featured Burroughs reading his story with Kurt playing a very trippy Silent Night and To Anacreon In Heaven. It was called The Priest They Called Him, and it was given a limited release on 10" vinyl twenty years ago today. You can listen to it here.
