    That pic was from back when you played with The Velvet Underground right?

    Mine is a dolphin wearing a dive mask with a purge valve. Being a lifelong SCUBA diver I thought it was cool when I found the image in ‘95 or ‘96
    Some folks think it’s a gas mask, but it isn’t

    A lot of people don't know this, but the spitoon avatar honors the legendary "Neon" Leon Fullerton's celebrated prowess as a competition expectorator. It's mentioned on this page: Cowgirl's Lullabye

    His daughter, Gwen, keeps his 1965 Golden Gob trophy in her San Fracisco painting studio. (She denies that she cleans her brushes in it.) He won several others over the years but lost them to gamblers, burglars, and vengeful ex-wives.

    The Fullertons, a gone-but-not-forgotten Neon Leon tribute band, liked to use the image of a winged cuspidor (note homage to the Winged C vacuum tube) to signify the melding of the the cosmic and earthly, the sacred and the profane, the yin and the yang - a theme that laces Fullerton's prodigious output.

    I'm the Q-Tip on the left:

    Mine is easy, me on my awesome horse who was laid to rest two years ago today. It broke my heart to have to have her put down after 22 years together but her arthritis had gotten so bad she couldn’t be ridden and she loved to be ridden. She was there with me through a divorce and the loss of both my parents. She was without a doubt the best horse I ever rode and had a heart like Secreteriat. I loved that horse and still do. She was a partner and a friend and above all, family !

    Don't know for sure, like most of our bikes, it's only ridden locally. I don't find it unusually uncomfortable however, and with appropriate breaks, I could probably ride it to California and back if I was so inclined (from Western South Dakota), though the temptation to just take the Goldwing might be too much to resist.

    Cool Les Paul!
    It looks a little like Al DiMeola’s.
    What year is it?

    Just changed mine ......again.....

    It's a composite photo I made years ago. Actually two medium format negatives stacked. One a portrait of a crazy friend who was known as Kreeture and the other this strange room I found in an abandoned casino or hot springs in Jacumba CA. It was painted black and everyone had thoughtfully only used white paint or chalk to mark it up. It's was a project for a class and I spent hours trying to come up with something and then stacked these two. The corner of the room registered exactly in Kreeture's left eye! It was 2 full sized negatives that lined up perfectly for this shot one on top of the other!

    I was experimenting with print developers at the time so may have been one of my crazy lye infused concoctions!

    With Photoshop it's not big deal but in 1999 it was tricky! It was TRi-X in Rodinal shot with a Rolleiflex. Made some great prints I still have!

    Larger size below.

    It's a '68, Dimarzio Super Distortion HBs. I loved that guitar, had to let it go back in '84, still miss it.

    I'm still not done with those guitars, however I did finish two of the necks for those guitars.

    Two of my three German Shepherds. All three are rescue dogs. We make a good pack. I rescued them. They've rescued me.
