H & H Car Wash and Coffee Shop embodies a such a stark juxtaposition of contradictory elements; It is a fairly squalid looking Car Wash — one that gives the impression that if you were to have your vehicle washed here, it would emerge dirtier than when it entered — as well as being a noted eatery of repute: Continue reading ‘H & H Car Wash and Coffee Shop — El Paso, TX’

We were supposed to be in Cleveland for a film festival, the Indie Gathering to be specific. A film I helped shoot, Mouth of Caddo , was in the festival so myself, along with one of the films producers and the director, decided to blow so money and take the pilgrimage to Cleveland. $1200 dollars and four days later it was very apparent that we caught a pretty bad case of debauchulism (a sickness derived from debauchery) coupled by the fact that we only graced the film festival with our presence for a combined hour and a half during our 4 day stay.
Instead, hungover and borderline unpleasant, we wandered into the colorful neighborhood of Treemont to visit the house featured in the film “A Christmas Story”.

All right. I was feeling a bit pigeonholed by my material on here. I am a bit to specific on the precise nature of what I want this site to be. So to simplify, diversify, and stupefy I have created an addendum for Wandrlust; The Wandrlustr via tumblr. The link of which is located over in this region.
That being said the web series I am a co-person on, Valley Peaks, has finally launched after an inordinate amount of time. Episodes 1 and 2 are currently viewable on You Tube and our website Valley Peaks, tell your friends and enemies. Episode One can be viewed above but click the video and watch it on High Quality on the You Tube or our site. From now on new episodes of Valley Peaks will be announced and viewable from the The Wandrlustr, not Wandrlust. That is where you will find Episode Two.
I hope you enjoy the new editions to the Wandrlust family, find yourself.
Coming very soonish hopefully maybe. Check it at the Valley Peaks website.
Some people love donuts. Cops for example are stereotypically associated with the donut. Maybe they do love donuts as much as they are portrayed to, but I have a theory, one that comes down to the donut shop itself.
See — the majority of representations we see in regards to officers of the law come from film and television. Most of said shows take place in Los Angeles and even if the setting isn’t LA, generally, they are at least shot here. Of all the places I have ever been to, I have never seen a city so densely populated with donut shops (that and places that serve pastrami all over shit) as Los Angeles. Yelp has around 960 donut shops listed in LA County — although I think its even more than that. My point is, with the hours cops have and the surprising lack of places that are open 24 hours, donut shops tend to be the default establishment for cops — or maybe, cops just love donuts.

When Vampires decide to become human, they are choosing mortality. They can no longer live eternally but they can feel and die like humans. I am not sure if the same rules apply for cartoon characters becoming human, but what I do know is that in the cartoon world you do not age or change your clothes. When Fat Albert chose to be human, he kept the clothes — but age and mortality are clearly a factor in this exchange. I think the addition of chops are suiting for a more mature Albert, and although a whole Domino’s Pizza for yourself may keep up the image, in the human world, heart attacks are real. Here is his earlier cartoon incarnation for comparison:
