Rock Island Armory

While in Davenport my friend Steve and I took an hour break from motorcycles and went and checked out the Rock Island National Armory Museum. I don't collect guns or anything but I was glad I went .. it was interesting to see the things collected from various wars .. I can read about something, but when I see something from that time in person is when it really comes into perspective and becomes real. Also If you've ever made a part by hand you can appreciate the craftsmanship and detail regardless of what they were ultimately used for. The craftsmanship on some of the revolutionary and civil war rifles reminded me a lot of Shinya Kimura's beautiful hand made parts.

oh man, shit.... did you see where that bolt dropped?

Straight To Hell

You wanna play mind-crazed banjo
On the druggy-drag ragtime U.S.A?
In parkland international
Hah! junkiedom U.S.A
Where procaine proves the purest rock man groove
And rat poison
The volatile molatov says-

Hey chico we got a message for ya...
Vamos vamos muchacho
From alphabet city all the way a to z, dead, head

Go straight to hell

zig zag wanderer

Twist his face (quenched his thirst) where he never been
Zig zag wanderer

You can dance you can prance
freeze those timbers drop some beans
Hide my shield throw away my lance
Zig zag child mercy mile
zig zag dreams zig zag dreams zig zag dreams....
