What did the original Load Limit post say? Why was it changed?

 

Actually the post said "I'm not a fan of mercer and his ego. And I shot with martha cooper once. See, now were best friends!" Which I believe was done in a jocular tone. Then someone got super umad, and banned another person, overstretching his powers because of some silly little internet thing, acting like he is getting jocked, when its just a legitimate dislike of someone.

rage, i voted.

interesting montage, very personal

i think i liked the red one with the leatherwork (whatever it is) the most

but there are some great portraits in there. the haircut one is really expressive as are a few others.

good luck, i'm so happy you are enjoying some recognition and success

that thing was intense, i was at least 10 feet away and the backfire still managed to shake my lens, looked kinda cool to me.

Those must be REAL old flicks, with the dinosaurs and all.... Wakka wakka!

 

Ha. One is in Antelope Valley (which you should explore once it cools off) and the other is in Yermo. Next time you go through Yermo you gotta stop at Peggy Sue's Diner.

I've seen Peggy Sue's before, on the way to Vegas, but I haven't stopped there yet. I have another Vegas trip lined up so maybe I'll stop this time, haha.

 

Thanks again for recommending all these spots out here. I'm starting to learn my way around and getting to explore some places.

Definitely stop at Peggy Sue's. It's full of crazy old memorabilia, and has a "diner-saur" park out back. The food is greasy diner food--but they also have pizza and an ice cream parlor, I think.

 

LMK if you want Vegas area recommendations. I LOVE Vegas. But for the places outside of the strip. I'm not a Vegas strip kinda person.

Well, you've steered me well so far in your recommendations, haha. What are a couple of your favorite Vegas spots? I've been a few times since moving, but I still haven't explored that area too much.

Must-see Vegas things:

 

1. The Pinball Hall of Fame. Trust me on this and just go. Be careful not to miss it, it's just a big warehouse with a small banner on it, no big signage. Across the street from the Liberace Museum, which I'd also say you have to see, except it's closed now. :(

 

2. Red Rock--drive the loop but be sure to stop and do some hiking. My favorite hike is the one that ends at a waterfall. Probably dried up this time of year. Also the hike with the ancient ovens and petroglyphs.

3. The Valley of Fire - an hour north of Vegas. One of my favorite places on earth:

The rocks are covered in ancient petroglyphs, it is the coolest thing:

4. Fremont Street--preferably at night. There is a Neon Sign museum--which is different from the Neon Sign Graveyard. The graveyard costs money and you can only go through it on a tour. The Neon Sign museum in Fremont is just out on the streets.

Also, Vegas has an arts district that most people don't know about. There's some graffiti there, not a whole ton, but some:

Oh and also the Hoover Dam is about 30min-1hr away:

Although this time of year, you're really only going to want to do the Pinball Hall of Fame and Fremont at night. Must be boiling hot out there!
