Bike Fight

I found this photo caught in an air conditioning unit outside my apartment complex at Eastern Illinois University. I don’t know what these guys are fighting about, but I’m sure it has something to do with the broken bike.

Don’t I Look Ambitious

Stopping and browsing at a local yard sale about a year ago, I picked up a copy of Alcoholics Anonymous and found the attached photo. It was probably taken overseas during World War II.

If Looks Could Kill

My friend and I found this wedged between two tables at a local bar. It was 80′s night karaoke. Someone was singing Heart’s “If Looks Could Kill.”
