Here's another one that makes you wonder , what are these guys thinking . . .

I love Star Wars just as much ( okay way more than ) the next guy . Mix that up with a healthy dose of outlaw motorcycle inspired culture , after all Darth Vader is one of the baddest bad guys out there . He's a fucking outlaw for crying out loud !

I'm not sure if this is an actual Lucas Films ® endeavor and they engaged a team of copyright lawyers make sure this was different enough to not step on any toes , or if they just figured they had more or tougher lawyers than someone else . Maybe this is a tag team rip off and no one knew it was happening . That would make for 2 very pissed groups of people who both have very aggressive legal teams at their disposal . . . regardless it's pretty bad ass , on a nerdy / outlaw level .

I'm not sure if I would wear this out of the house as that could initiate some very awkward conversation with certain people who take this stuff very seriously . . . but it is a really interesting crossbreed of 2 very interesting and different cultures .

Once again the " outlaw subculture " gets a bite taken out of it by the mainstream .

The Weekend Gypsy

Is the name of my wife's little pet project she's been working on for a while now . It's the name of her Etsy store and also what she sort of thinks of herself . Since she's a full time mommy and wife , she only has time to be a part time gypsy ! We've started making crystal jewelry together . The cool part is that the crystals are set in fired bullet casings .

Bullets that we shoot at the range together and collect , then polish them and make twisted wire hangers and set the crystals . Kind of artsy craftsy stuff , but I get to help with the more intensive ( dangerous ) aspects of it like the soldering and the polishing .

These crystals are all pretty cool looking and depending on the finish ( some of them are polished , some are wire wheeled and some are just raw brass ) they really take on different looks . They're all pretty awesome though .

Take a look at the few of them we have online so far and pick one out for your special lady friend . We can also make them personal with a certain caliber and particular crystal if you want to surprize someone special with a real treat , for no good reason .

Just remember . . . home made junk is the best junk , support your local junk makers !

Caught up with these fellers on the 5 headed north near Pacific Beach on Mothers Day , Sunday 8th

I'm guessing these guys were probably on the way back up from Mexico and the El Diablo ride . By the looks of their colours , they had a good long ride in front of them .

Support your local Death Traps MC , on the road again !

We're running away from Darth Vader !

I'm so proud of my son ! I had to wait till I was 11 to fall in love with Star Wars . . . he gets to start at 3 !

Sometimes all you need to make things better

is a chocolate chip pancake . I wish life could stay this simple sometimes .
