The Godbeast of Zathar

We pay her homage, and she will watch over us.

Snapped this totally bodacious pic of Patrick just before the Godbeast laid waste to Oxford Street. She almost stepped on him! Wouldn't that have been bad?

Two concerns ahead of the rally tomorrow...
1. The sunscreen wore a hole through the plastic baggie it was in. This means the campsuds and bug spray can now fall out of that bag. We're really not sure what to do about this.

(Speaking's what went into the car tonight)

2. We lack a copy of Will Oldham's recording of "Southside of the World". I think we might see some fierce musical competition on the rally since this event is about style more than anything. Not just clothes and hair, but the complete image of the team. So I've blown it on this one. It also would have helped if we could have managed to get P's music into the pod. Nevertheless, I think our secret mix tapes will acquit us well. We also have a dark horse...Patrick will keep right on whaling long after the iPods lose their charge. There are no misspellings in the previous sentence, for those in the know.

Patrick tarted up the car tonight during the packing phase. I snapped some shots in the dark and have made a little composite. It would be nice to have daytime pics, but I don't think we'll be able to post those for awhile and the car will begin receiving abuse immediately. So here is a pristine, if dark, record for those of you who want to see your sticker. Thanks again for your sponsorship!

Mongolia, tremble tremble tremble.

dude, you brought the black guitar! i hope it remains in good shape - i would consider it a complete tragedy if anything happened.

i'm glad that you were able to cram the car full of stuff. also that you could put my sticker on the gas cap. you can think of me (and my affection for both the hell lemurs and the middle east) every time you fill up. or if someone siphons your gas.

kick ass!
