Jones Soda

without comments

Jones Soda ran one of my photos on their January run of bubblegum soda.  I love these guys because they do things their own way and come up with some pretty unique flavors. I spent a few months living in Melbourne, and I took the photo while I was exploring the city’s street art and eclectic laneways.  If you happen across a bottle around town, let me know.

Junkyard Beer Fridge Project

with 2 comments

I recently found an old rusty vintage refrigerator at the dump heading for the scrap pile. I scoped it out, and figured it still looked like it might work, plus I needed a new fridge for my home-brew. So I took it home, plugged it in and it clicked on immediately… so I got to work. After a few hours of sanding, painting, drilling and re-insulating… here is the result:

“I’m on a boat” | Working on Sail Yacht EOS

with 2 comments

I worked a variety of ridiculous jobs for the 1 year and 1 day I lived in Australia. I was a bartender at the Sydney Open Air Cinema, a brewers assistant, a solar energy “specialist”, hay bailer, and a cameleer. One of the more interesting gigs was a stint I spent working  on Sail Yacht EOS for a few months while I was in Fremantle, WA. Owned by an American billionaire, EOS is the worlds largest privately owned sailing yacht (measuring in at 305 feet). Aside from weekly scrub downs and climbing up the mast, one of my jobs was to sand down a custom built mahogany river tender, re-stain and clear-coat it. Did I mention that that particular river tender is worth more than one million dollars…

Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
cause you’ve seen it all, you’ve seen it all
Watched the men who rode you switched from sails to steam
And in your belly you hold the treasures few have ever seen
Most of ’em are dreams, most of ’em are dreams
Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
The cannons don’t thunder, there’s nothin’ to plunder
I’m an under-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late
-Jimmy Buffet
