I love this shot. She looks like a vampire a little. But not one of those dorky Twilight ones. A real one.
Which is scary and beautiful at the same time.

Walked out to the mall parking lot and Jolene was talking to her friends.
She was tellin’ ‘em what real 4x4s are about, more like.
It’s probably a rattletrap, but man is it cool lookin’.
1961 Chevrolet Apache 10 Suburban (C/K Series 1960-66)
This two door panel Apache 10 looks to have added side windows, though I could be mistaken. What is certain is that this year is one of the most expressive Suburbans ever made. Only 2 model years featured the distinct upper grille design.
Other than the awesome color I think the best thing about this truck is the patina. While it’s unfortunate that it’s not it pristine condition, trucks always seem to be able to pull off a little rust and damage.
Seen in the N Portland neighborhood of St. Johns.
When this popped up in my dashboard, I found myself thinking, “I sure hope this is Kevin.”
Wish: granted. Can’t wait to see…
BIG NEWS FROM THE FLUX MACHINE FRONT:
Dear Tumblr and Tumblr followers, for the past several months, I have been working on a music video for an awesome awesome band whose name will remain a mystery. It’s been a pretty intense learning experience taking my animation chops from short-form to long-form, but I’m finally getting close to finish. I’ve never been more excited about a project. Ever. Thanks for following and spreading my work and being awesome.
Here’s a teaser gif from the video. I’ll be posting more of these from time to time.
I’m not apparently part of the generation that associates this with its childhood.
And yet I know every note.
I love old cars.
1965 Dodge Polara.
“Po·lar·is (pō lâr´is), n. 1. Astron. the polestar or North Star, a star of the second magnitude situated close to the north pole of the heavens, in the constellation Ursa Minor: the outermost star in the handle of the Little Dipper. 2. U.S. a two-stage ballistic missile, usually fired from a submerged submarine. [short for ML stella polāris Polar star]”
(Random House Dictionary of the English Language )
Where once she had looked to the West, by 1965, America was staring right into space and so was Dodge. Maybe it was no accident that when Star Trek debuted the following year, the communicator pins worn by the crew of the Starship Enterprise looked an awful lot like the Dodge “fratzog” emblem.
