Laughing Mom said…
That is a cool shot, duf! Where is it? There must be a story to go with it! Do tell.....
Barb said…
Nice shot Duf!
Ziva said…
Ohh, this is such an awesome photo, you handsome devil, you! I love it. Thank you, dufus, for participating, punning and photographing, it's been a true pleasure. :)

It was fun, eh? Well, kinda.
nonamedufus said…
No big story. That's one of the corners of my backyard deck. I took the shot just after the sun had gone down around 6pm.
nonamedufus said…
Are you kidding? I'm ready for the next 30 days...in about a year. I really like the handsome devil part. I think the darkness covers up a lot.
Shawn Ohara said…
Thought you would post another video for this one, "This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark ..."
Danielle Batog said…
I love how you did this photo.
Jamie Baker said…
Well done Dufus. Night, night.
nonamedufus said…
Damn, now why didn't I think of that?
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Danielle. It really was straight forward. And it was the only shot I took, so I'm glad it turned out.
nonamedufus said…
Sleep tight, Jamie.
The light is perfect in this... and the layout of the shot. LOVE it!

Nice way to tie it all together Noname.

Hey, Diogenes, I got a hint for you: Give up the search. You're not going to find one. Give yourself a break and have a cold one. I'll join you.

This is your best photo of the event, NoName. I love it. And you are handsome. I wouldn't do you, of course, but I'm sure somebody would.
nonamedufus said…
That's a light on our deck. I stood on one side, held the camera on the other and clicked.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Mike. I'm delighted by your comment.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, it does look like I'm carrying that lamp but it's really on a post. And it's night-time not during the day. (Thanks Google.) I'm pouring now you silver-tongued devil.

That lantern is AWESOME! If that IS a lantern. I sure could've used that this week.

NJ is an absolute mess. Things are really bad. We have no power, no television, no radio, no internet, no landlines, no cell phone service, no texts, no emails, no form of communication whatsoever - nothing.

And the roads are awful. Trees & power lines are down, blocking streets, no traffic lights work...ect.

We probably won't have power for at least a week.

Luckily I was able to escape NJ with my son and and we made it to PA safely, to my brothers house where we have POWER and INTERNET and SHOWERS. Thank fuck.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, man, Meleah, like that's just what you need. I guess New Jersey pretty much bore the brunt of the storm. Glad you're safe and sound, high and dry, powered up and clean.
Cheryl said…
Good gawd, man! That's some spooky photo. I don't think I've ever seen your serious face.
nonamedufus said…
That was my Halloween shot.
Cheryl said…
Did you manage to frighten away all the trick or treaters?


We haven't had TorT yet. Saturday unless it snows. ;-)
Boom Boom Larew said…
Now, that's kinda creepy... are you trying to scare away the trick-or-treaters?
nonamedufus said…
We've lived here 11 years and never had a Trick or Treater. Now that's scary.
nonamedufus said…
I must have. They never come to our house.

heya dufus, nice to put a face with the name.
nonamedufus said…
Yes, I really do exist.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
