Monday August, 8th 2011 - Book 89 - As stated in the book production scene, "Your binding moments were a pain in the ass, but I think they should hold for a good long while." It was another fantastic morning, and I enjoyed it, but The Gas Can Book II made me work for it.
That's a shot of "The Hilton," or Bob's storage shack. The pile of cans on the right are the large gas cans I pack down to the road so Bob can truck them out and reuse them. After I took this shot to prove that I found this prop at Spruce, I went back down to the firepit and wrote a fun fantasy about how I imagined you'd use this book. And I quote, "When I get done putting pockets on either side of the book [on the inside], I could see you packing a lunch in here and toting The Living City to the park with your sweetie...You'll read aloud as she (or he) feeds you grapes and moons over your excellent taste in fiction. Then you'll get laid, for sure. That's what owning a book made from an old miner's gas can, and the rug I prayed everyday that my Girlfriend's evil cat wouldn't piss on, will do for you."
