Will Freeman is a local man of many talents. He currently works at a midtown catering business but, his passion lies in video production and sound engineering. He’s also keen on the fine art of chill.
One of the great things about our fabulous city is the thickness of the air in February. You can almost taste the humidity in this photo, shot early on a February day.
I love Belvedere in all seasons. These photos were taken in January, March, June, and October of 2010.
Leon Redbone is a lunatic. A wonderful, wonderful lunatic. I have enjoyed Leon Redbone since I was a kid. I suspect the first time I saw him was in the 1970′s on SNL. His unique voice combined with his very apparent humor and fashion sense have always made for an entertaining presentation. Recently, my wife [...]
The group was silent, staring down at the new foot. Mr. Lee, Junior, Sue, and Little Junior, standing in a circle, eyes cast downward, would have appeared to be praying from anyone looking in the big window of Mr. Lee’s Prosthetic shop. “It looks colored,” Junior’s voice was barely audible. “What?” Mr. Lee asked. “The [...]
Some joker in Minnesota announced this week that the dates of the astrological birth signs has changed. And, while he was at it, he added another sign. Parke Kunkle with the Minnesota Planetarium Society (and an astronomy instructor at a community college) announced that due to a wobbly earth, the signs have to be adjusted. [...]
That last half of August the part of me I don’t admit to the tyrant I didn’t even know was in there set up shop (I worked on commission) and I think it’s fair to call it a shop of sweat and tears and blood eventually after I had put my handprints in the dust [...]

He circled the small boy before him, each step calculated and exact to keep him within attacking position. The boy stood [...]
“Come on now boy, no time for lazing about now, there’s crops to bring in!” The Fat Man’s voice bubbled with orneriness and annoyance as he passed by. On his left shoulder he carried a bale of corn stalks, with his right hand he reached out and clouted the boy upon the back of his [...]

“Oh it’s so nice to see you back to yourself once again!” Father bubbled over with glee as he took in the man before him. Fat Man smiled warmly in the beams of sunlight coming through the front window. ”Feels good to be back!” The group stood in awkward silence, the only sound to be [...]
Maybe you have seen the signs around town -Charlotte Bergmann Can Win. It is so great to see Republican political campaigns catch up with their overall commitment to mediocrity. Charlotte Bergmann Can Win is absolutely the least they can say about her. It’s non-committal, vague, and in no way speaks to her values, morals, experience or person. [...]
The young boy sat upon the floor cradling his unconscious father upon his lap. Fear consumed his features as he took in the brutish man standing upon his doorstep within the ruins of the entryway. He glanced over to see Dog sitting to the side looking at the man with a quizzical cock of his [...]
