Escape Monday: Pics From The “Best Of Russia 2012” Competition

tower-perspective_2494677kRussians are a weird bunch at the best of times. The only first-hand experience I’ve had of them was when J-Rab and I were in Thailand on an island tour with about 30 of them in a speedboat with us.

The trip lasted a good 10 hours and during the course of it we saw some of Thailand’s most beautiful islands, but do you think these flippin’ Ruskies cracked one goddamn smile at any point during the trip?!

It was like we were stuck on a boat with a buncha miserable shop mannequins. That’s what made the photos I’m about to show you all the more remarkable. The depth of emotion they capture and communicate is truly amazing.

Mindgun – One Seriously Badass Site

The saying goes that you’ll never meet your future wife in a bar and I think there’s a lot of truth in that, but man-o-man, if I had to write a list of all the twisted, crazy fuckers who’ve ended up being great friends that I met in bars, it would be a goddamn mile long!

Mr D was one of those fine, upstanding maniacs (read this story as proof). I met him on a night when I was playing a gig in Grahamstown. He was knocking back a pint of stout and eyeing the bar like at any minute he might pull a knife out and lay into someone for making eye contact, so naturally I walked over and started up a conversation with the man.
