Friends with benefits

My buddy Rob took the shot for this week's Good Frickin' Picture Wednesday. Rob used to be all cool, but then he got a job with, like, health insurance benefits and stuff. Nobody cool has health insurance. Booooor-iiiiiing.

Rob lives in Venice Beach, where he is one of three non-panhandlers. He takes some mean pictures -- he's got one of those old-fangled cameras with F-stops and stuff, like the pilgrims used.

Rob just fractured two vertebrae in his lower back while skiing in a Big Air contest. At least he's putting that insurance to good use. Good luck with your broken arse, man.

You can check out more of Rob's pics here.


  1. Great shot!!!

    btw- did you happen to notice that your Maine flower has been getting around?

    we skipped the light old-fangled,
    turned cartwheels 'cross the floor...

    feel free to join in

  3. Shandi --

    I had no idea that that flower was getting around behind my back. I had an inkling about its flexible morals, but now it's confirmed. Where's that tramp been?

  4. Well, if she's "stalking" me ...she may not be as hetero as you thought.

  5. Haha -- I get it now. Dude, I am seriously freaking dense.

    Y'all should check out Shandi's blog -- besides being especially bitchin', it also has a great shot of the flower that travels the country, jumping in front of people's cameras.

  6. So, where was Rob when he broke the arse? I ask only because I was at Copper Mountain, CO that week, and there were thousands of snowboarders there for a big national competition.

    Funny stuff here, I'll be back!

  7. Hey Jim -- thanks, man. Glad you stopped by. I think it might have been at Mt. Baldy, somewhere near LA. Didn't know you could ski in LA, but apparently you can. Rob's probably pissed that I didn't mention that he got second place --and he also got a free snowmobile ride. What a great day.
