Is that a pony-tail off of your neck?

Chris said...

or is it a rat-tail, vato?

elnellis said...

i wish, it's my hoodie. :)
(that reminds me of the mono-dread-beaver-tail homless dude in chicago who hung out by moody- did you ever see that guy?)

chris said...

mono-dread-beaver-tail...that's funny! i think maybe i saw him...

chuck said...

phil the time has come to finally take up the mantle of beaver dread man, seattle is without a savior.

nathan Barrett said...

We bequeath to you the weighty title and mantle of beaver dread man , west coast style! WEST SIDE!

I do remember the beaver dread man in Chicago - you could almost see the dung in his beaver tail - but it warmed my heart, the beaver being the national animal of the glorious northern country of Canada. Go CANUCKS!

concept is perfect for a place like drizzly seattle. there were many times i saw mono-dread-beaver-tail-homeless-dude fold the matted mess over and set it on his head like a hat- sheltering him from rain, snow, pigeon poop and any other attack from above. i'll have to think about it....

Aaron said...

yes, i most certainly remember mono-dread, the beaver-tailed-mullet-man... he always hung out in front of macdonalds i think...

sometimes i wish they would air a "where are they now" tv show profiling the homeless in chicago that we have come to know and love. what about the guy who sat on the guardrail in front of mcdonald's and continually repeated, "change for the homeless, help out the homeless, how bout some change" in a gruff, mumbly voice?

Aaron said...

and by the way... beautiful picture. i love that you guys are silhouetted against the evening sky... very impressive.
