took fin out to sauvie last week.
holy crap!
it was fantastic. she showed some fucking mojo. we kicked up some birds and everything set up perfectly. i made a lucky shot and fin got her first rooster. i'm still rollin' on the high.

well, the only thing that could make the k-tok better than last time would be to share it with friends. fishing was epic. weather was spectacular. food was plentiful. rum was sweet. smokes were smooth. and beer was cold (once we got back to anchorage).
as usual i'll let some photos do the talking.
good times, fellas. good times.

more fun than my job.

but i get to go to alaska in 2 months.

the long khan.

easily the most awesome thing to come along since you could buy loaves of bread pre-sliced.

the new pup.

fin is here. she's just under 3 months now and quite the handful. and by handful, i mean mouthful...of razor sharp puppy teeth. so far so good. she loves to find dead shit. sniffs out the pheasant wings i hide like a champ. and is already kicking lou's ass around the house. i can't wait to get her on some live birds.

ocean bounty.

hey friends and enemies. it's been awhile. no real fishing trips to report lately, but we have run out to the coast a couple times. we don't really know what we're doing and deemed both trips as "science missions", but we had fun.
keep in mind that in all these pictures the wind was blowing over 60mph and it was raining like a nebraska tornado was about to throw some cattle or a barn door at us.
so don't tell our moms that we were hanging out on the jetties...

except, if you've seen him lately, he looks a little bit more like an 80 year old.

nice win, boys.

dry snow.

some highlights from the colorado bachelor party.
their powder v. our slush isn't really even a contest.
good times, fellas. and congrats to the groom.
no one had to ride the red sled this trip, so i penciled this one in as a success.
here's to the next one.

a happy ending.

well, pops bagged a sheep.
the routine was pretty standard. try to find one early before the wind started blowing 100 miles per hour. it didn't take long...for the wind, i mean.
we saw a few groups at about 800 miles. and they didn't give us any stalking opportunities which is what we were really hoping for. instead a group of four poked their heads up over a cliff at about 200 yards, straight up.
dad missed a bigger ewe. but dropped a smaller ram. 200 yards up a wall to get him felt like 2 miles.

like i said, it was a smaller ram, so there aren't any trophy pics. still, it was a great hunt. and i'd love do it again. one of these days pops and i are gonna get that trophy animal. we joke about how we make the most out of the 10 second window we get to make shit happen. someday. someday. we'll have that chance to call in a huge bull elk or rattle in a big time muley with plenty of time to set up and make a great shot.
it'll happen one of these times.

pete postlethwaite (1946–2011)

fergie the florist has passed. one of those strange actors you love but don't even know his name until something bad happens. great name, sir. when watching him you think he could actually be kobayashi.

top ten movies of 2010...

so, last year i saw 30 something of the year's top grossing movies. that seemed like a lot, right? yeah, i guess it was. this year i sat through only 18. i conclude that the number was much lower for two reasons. first, i was busy. second, hollywood sucked this year. i mean, hollywood sucks every year, but this year was just ridiculous.
i'll try to come up with ten good ones, but probably won't get too far.

iron man 2
meh. ho-hum. comic book movie + sucker = i'm not gonna say i didn't like it.
don't swing and miss again with the villains, though, or we'll have issues. leave the horrible russian accents to cheesy james bond bad guys, ok mickey?
meh. ho-hum. i'll buy the blu-ray because that's what suckers do.

the people that think they are smarter than this film can save their issues for the next mensa meeting. i was entertained, which is the first reason i go to movies. then followed closely by a chance to see angelina jolie's ass while eating sour patch kids.

the town
gawbage bawston bank robbas. good story. great casting.
it felt like something like this could happen at any moment:

kick ass
you think i would have a top ten movies of the year without an entry from sweet nic cage?! you know i've read the comic books, so the movie was bound to disappoint. it didn't. cursing children. good stuff.

due date
this year's hangover. you saw it. everyone saw it. these movies will eventually go the way of adam sandler but until then, i'm in.

hot tub time machine
the sleeper. maybe you didn't see it. you should. dirty jokes. and it feels good to put john cusack in this list.

scott pilgrim
great flick. if you haven't seen it, you probably won't...because you're so cool.
go nerds. go nerds. go nerds.

that's all i got. granted i haven't yet seen true grit or black swan or social network. i'm told they will all crack the top five.
