The Harvester

I never know where I’m going, ’til I get there.

I never know if I’m going ’til I’m gone.

Walked into an alley in Chinatown

…and found

…this beauty!

A few years old, and a bit chipped up, she is nonetheless a beacon amid the hoi polloi of alley art.

What A Doll!

During a 3 hour drive to get our mail, we cut through Chinatown.

The corner of my right eye caught the splash of colour down a side street.

I knew it was a face, somehow.

There was no time to stop, but I knew I would return!

What a doll!

… and the sweet yellow bird….

Squirrel & Girl

This sweet squirrel was at the top of an alley branching off another alley.

What side of the fence is he/she on?

Anyway, it made the alley look promising.

NOT!

The alley deteriorated into trash and throw ups on all the garage doors.

However I found a face I like. Looks like it’s been there a quite few years.

Frank Zappa

I found Frank Zappa Today!

I adore the characterization.

The trees and ivy obscured the art and its message.

It says: Stupidity Has A Certain Charm

Ignorance Does Not

I had to take this from an angle. The angle was in the first lane of west bound traffic in the road. I waited until the light was red both ways , then made my moves. Most excitement I’ve had in 2 years!

As a Veggie, I chose this song, my fave vegetable song, ever!

Pigeons for Gigi

I thought of Gigi – Rethinking Life when I found these pigeons on a power box.

I adore pigeons, and know Gi does, too!

Coo coo coo, yes they poo!

Coo coo coo, so do you!

There was a hard to get at pigeon on the side by the mailbox, and one on the other side beside a telephone pole.

Drake & Rough Trade – En Graffe

Billboard has named DRAKE; the “Artist of the Decade”

I chose this song by Drake, because it was outta the gate the year after I worked with him, on “Degrassi the Next Generation”. He was a decent person, with respects and good work ethics.

 

ROUGH TRADE

This 80’s  Canadian band was fronted by Carol Pope & Kevin Staples.

Perhaps they were like a New Wave version of Alice Cooper?  You know rough, in an oddly sexy way.

They seem somewhere between Rock, Punk and New Wave; and I like them lots!

So cool, Carole Pope and Dusty Springfield had an affair! http://www.laventure.net/tourist/anti-diva.htm

It was difficult to pick a fave song. They had a lot of good ones.
