Darkthroning, like graffiti, jaywalking, sidewalk chalk art, and bus people, kills

Since darkthroning in the city is so dangerous,* I decided last eve to troo kvlt with the SBH twixt trees & trolls & yeah actions incongruous but you try toting both a viking axe & berserker rage over the concrete of your burg, smart guy/gal. Even Olaf would be taken down by a .45.

First these guys, then those sneaky sciuridae.

I suppose that you're hungry, too.

The spinner of this probably is. Better call Shatner.

Close enough. No killer frogs, though.

Aren't they cute? You shut up, you know who you are.

Wish I had gotten a better perspective; this sucker was mighty ominous.

As ominous as the lowest water level I've seen in a good while.

Scanning for suckers? St. Francis of the Squirrels is not fooled.

One bit, two bits, orb-its, a dollar.

Even the trees have Reflective Powers.

For they too know that Roots sucks.

Add a corpse, some ravens, B&W it, et voila, black metal album cover.

Canopy jar.

Artsy nouveau.

Every town has one.

*since we oft stroll near there, I or my ghost will let you know if we get plugged

Nice pics, R.G.

Graves, you swine!

And all this time I thought you were so unbalanced that you couldn't ride a bike, but still $20 is a princely haul and now you can pay off your Famous Ray's tab!

Well done, sir!

Is this one of the many pristine tributaries of the Cuyahoga River? Just ignore the run off from the steel and coke refineries.

Randal Graves said...

duchess, those hidden paths are real good for building coffins in the woods.

if, eh, some are okay, yours are far superior, though in my defense, I am using a cheap point-n-click.

tengrain, as both the official publicist and an honorary member of Famous Ray's inner circle, I certainly do not have a tab.

demeur, nothing so highfalutin', merely a suburban creek flush with its own special brand of runoff.

Oh, THAT "Roots." A clever way to separate the young hipsters from those old farts who thought you were talking about a TV mini-series from the '70s.

Nice trees. Are they American trees...... or illegal Mexican migrant ones. Just cause you have leaves doesn't get you an automatic green card, see!

When winter comes and the leaves are gone, the kites will still be there adding color to your skyscape.

About rolled in the floor seeing Shatner in that 70's era western wear that looked like something from a Denver disco.

Randal Graves said...

tom, the LeVar Burton Roots is good. The Max Cavalera Roots is the diametric opposite.

okjimm! Thy mind hath been dirtied with politick! Cleanse with ale!

susan, I hope so; ain't gonna come from the architecture beige and grey.

BB, you've never seen Kingdom of the Spiders? Egads, man, treat yourself and get thee to a video rental store or the piratical interwebs.

I find it funny that Sepultura's foray into quasi-nu-metal is Hipster Music The Kids Dig.

Most kite-eating trees are just nuisances. The ones that devour kite-flying kids are another matter.
