Sunday evening on a windy cold spooky night I was driving back from Brattleboro on the last leg of my 2 hour journey right here in Ea$tern Connecticut I began to notice houses decorated for Hall….. No No those aren’t Halloween Lights, I’m not a big fan of Halloween lights or compresser skelatons but hell there’s plenty of oil. We live on a planet that has infinate resources and room for at least another 300 billion people to waste them. No these were Christmas Lights for it is again the begining of the season of the Sellabration of Saint Consumer rising above all expectations of Excess and Flying throught the air in his/her Green Hummer On Visa, on Discover, on Mastercard, on layaway, Now trash away, trash away, trash away all. Remember without Plastic even landfills themselves would be impossible. Boo, Merry, Happy, Deck the, Whatever. Ho Ho pjc
“If I was doing any better I’d be twins!” OOBAHS may not be open for lunch anymore but It will always be open in my heart/mind. Jason, Chris, Jessie, and the Obonium family first landed in Willimantic July 99 this image from 7/8/99 Wraps, chili, quips, laughter, music, art, super sized helpings of generosity, humanity, humor, compassion.
Ambiance by OOBAHS
There are places that are more than brick and mortar, places where the usual subjects gathered dropped their work personas and settled in for coffee, tea, frivolity, A book release party, A Mural by Arnold and one by Stacy, Cartoons by Jesse, wraps and sound by Chris, winks and smiles from Erica and all the other Obonian’s who came to Willi to observe and make this little corner of planet Earth very cool. Tomorrow Erica’s singing for third thursday and there will be others on Fridays as the doors to this Magic Kingdom continue to open and spread smiles. Bruce John, King Cake, Patty, Rex, Gary……………..See you all tomorrow night.
Last Sat. I was in town and found many interesting people. I’m thinking about shooting Harmony Parking Lot Portraits this Sunday. I hope to arrive early say 9:30-10, It’s a two plus hour drive so that’s early for me. Candids, posed, costumes or just you relaxing in your race car bed. I’ll be around most of the day so if you see me say hello shoot me. If you read this pass it on to others who may want to be subjects, actors or just be yourself. enjoy pjc
