Vegas is the Pits, Pt II

(clicking on image is mandatory for getting joke)

You know, if you're going to buy an over-priced stucco box in Las Vegas, you might as well get one with a view.

"Look honey, they've got one of those new D-9 Cats!"

"Sweetheart, our dung-colored, cookie-cutter crapbox is worth every penny of its inflated price, because we can look at American-made earth-moving equipment whenever we like. Mmmm, Caterpillar, Deere, Link-Belt..."

"Tish! You drive me crazy when you speak heavy-industrial!"

"Now Gomez. Control yourself."

A friend of mine calls the area surrounding I-215 northwest of I-15 "New World" due to all the subdivisions going up so fast.

I can't believe that this housing bust is going to be kind to people who bought housing ther or to Las Vegas.

The I-15 Craig Road northbound exit is always backed up.

Welcome back from your break Lavi.

Hey. I call them, "stucco canyons".

That's right. You heard it here first.

(Actually, I made it up in Tucson in the '80's)


Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
