Kill It, Stuff It and Stick 'Er Up on the Wall........ BEER!!!!!

Hey y'all!

Imma writin' this from the good ole' state of Montana.  So Imma guessin' you could call this a "travel blog" or somethin'...

Just Kidding.

But tis true  - I thought I would sneak in a little word vomit - Montana style.

You know what I fuckin' love about this place? (Besides my mom and family and friends and the mountains and wild flowers and clean air.)

You see shit like this in all our watering holes!!! (Sorry about the crap pixels but they're from my phone so I had to blow them up a bit.)

Nothing says BEER like a dead head on the wall -
be it a moose or a bison or an elk.

Or an antelope (?) or a big ass trout.....BEER!!!!!!!

Why is this bear interested in that honey....
there's like 50 bucks on this wall -
grab the cash and buy yourself that shit from the store, buddy.
No nasty bee stings necessary!

No Duh.

Seriously you guys - how can you not LOVE a place like this!!??!

So the reason why I am here and didn't mention anything about it before is because it was a surprise for my mom for Mother's Day and guess what - I KEPT IT A SECRET!!!!

"She kept her big mouth shut for once."
"Holy Shit. Hell just froze over."

I know!!!!!!!!  

And ya know what else? Secret keeping is so fun! (My mom totally shat herself when I walked in. WINNING!!!!)

But don't worry - that's where the secret-keeping ends, buddies. How else would I be able to write on here if I didn't lay out all my shit??

Coming up soon - when I get back to the islands - more lost solez.... thank you to all who are keeping their eyes out and have sent me some pics!! I have found some GEMS here.....

(Have you seen any?? Make sure to take a picture and email them to me at Let me know where they are from and your name or alias!!)

Oh wait - here's one more secret you can pass on.....

Same goes for Hawaii.....

Lost Solez

OMG you guys.

I have been waiting to lay this little number on y'all.

Many of you knew this was coming and it's official.

The  LOST SOLEZ  portion of my blog has arrived!!!

WTF is Lost Solez??

I'm so happy you asked! Let's call it an ode, no -  let's call it a "Propa' Ode" -  to the "One Shoe Phenomena".

You know when you're driving/walking/staggering along and you see some random ass shoe on the road/sidewalk/parking lot and you think "how the hell did that get there?"  or "what's the story behind that abandoned little gem" or "haha look at that shoe in the middle of the road!"

These are the pictures of those lost solez; never to be worn again - well maybe by a crazy ass bum - never to be reunited with it's other sole mate, always to be thought of as footwear-roadkill for eternity.

I have been seeing these so much lately that I thought I would start my own little shrine.

Specklesville, Hawaii                                                      T-Dubya

Kuau, Hawaii                                                           T-Dubya

Huelo, Hawaii                                                         T-Dubya

Ho'okipa Beach Park, Hawaii                                                                   T-Dubya

Haiku, Hawaii                                                          T-Dubya

*Bonus Picture*

Peahi, Hawaii                                                                                             T-Dubya

For now these have been taken by me on my day to day adventures. Some are taken by camera if I happen to have it with me, and trust me I am no photographer, so it's not like it's on me at all times (And if we are being honest nothing screams TOURIST like a camera-necklace and I, my good friends, have called these Hawaiian Isles home for 5 years now and I am NOT keen on lookin' like a tourist.) or they are taken by my phone so they aren't the best pictures but we'll do what we can. Word? Word.

Also, I would LOVE to have you guys keeping your eyes open for random lost solez and you can email me them and I will post them on this blog - along with your name or a fake name or whatever you want to be called and the town/state/country they came from.

Here are the rules tho:
#1.  You can't rig up some fake-ass picture, like throwing your old-balls shoe out the door and snapping a picture. (Where's the fun in that?) Which leads me to rule #2.
#2.  So no touching, moving, positioning, spit shining of the lost sole is allowed - you gotta take the pictures organically, as it is, some pictures are just going to be boring and some will be fantastic - this is life.
#3. If you see something really picture worthy that's not a lost sole but just as funny and random then I will accept those as well for the *Bonus Picture* portion of our program - maybe it's a sock, maybe it's a funny sign, whatever - let's keep shit spicy - this is life.

So - keep your eyes peeled and your camera ready - you're going to be surprised at how many lost solez you see now!  Please email me your pictures to and your name or alias and the town/state/country they came from! I'm excited to see what we can get!

Happy Lost Solez spotting!!

**Disclaimer*** I am not held responsible for the weird looks and/or honks you will receive after you spot a lost sole and promptly whip your car to the side of the road, jump out, looking like a total spazoid to shoot a random picture of a nasty old shoe as opposed to the beautiful scenery around you. Just do it and forget about those people driving by - you probably won't see their asses again anyway!
