Center of the Earth

Center of the Earth Originally uploaded by Corey Porter. When you fire up Google Earth, it presents you with a “default” view that you can zoom in on.

Does this seem fast or slow?

Feeding the Monkey at Boardner’s

Again, At Boardner’s Originally uploaded by corey_porter. I would like to state, for the record, that I am offended by the Halloween patrons of Boardner’s (photo set). Yes, there were slutty devils and slutty schoolgirls and the three amigos and cops and state pen inmates, which, sure, is fine. But dammit, when I play Janis’ […]

Chris, Justin and Darin got tickets.

Chris, Justin and Darin got tickets. Originally uploaded by corey_porter. Tip: if you’re in Manhattan beach, don’t *dare* cross the street when the “don’t walk” light is flashing. If you do, you will get a jaywalking ticket with a quickness. Some friends are in town this weekend for a football game. I took a few […]
