Vintage Leather

I feel overwhelmed with stuff sometimes, I collect things that are beautiful to me and inspire me.

I absorb them - very often from a technician's POV, which for me is in a big way inseparable from the aesthetic POV. I am very much into Beautiful things that Work.

Beauty, by itself is amazing, it blows me away. Beauty that works, I'm breathless, there are so many beautiful things- but when they become part of function- that inspires me,

These are two pieces that have inspired me for years. The first is an incredible Byron Lars vest from his First Spring collection.

The next is a wonderfully hand-crafted North Beach Leather jacket.

Vote for Health Freedom

It's Super important that the Health Care System in this country gets a complete overhaul.

Been eading about all the massive conflicts of interest and insane lack of oversight by the FDA on drugs and devices in the NYTs this week and sure that is just the tip of the iceburg.

It's as big a scam as the TARP that's been shoved down out throats.
