Winter is Coming

Alright guys, joke's over. Fess up. Which one of you snuck into our house, and where did you hide the dead skunk?! Seriously! Why does it still smell like a rotting barrel of offal in here?!!! WHY?!!! EFFFFFF!!

Okay, so the real story: we bought some snapper from Costco earlier this week, and baked it. The fish was a little bit 'fishy' smelling prior to cooking, but tasted fantastic afterwards. Except now the house still smells like fish. Four. Days. Later. Someone get me a can of gasoline and a lighter, it's time to start fresh. No half measures.

Just kidding. Using an insurance fire to get rid of a fish smell is dumb like that guy who called in a bomb threat on his wedding day because he forgot to book the venue and didn't want to admit it to his wife. True story, even I can't make this shit up.

Sidewalk Occupied
I've wanted an excuse to use this photo forever now, and finally I have one. These were fish drying out in the sun on a sidewalk somewhere near Nha Trang, Vietnam.

Anyways, completely unrelated: Winter is coming (the 20cm of snow says so), and what better time than to hunker down and post some film scans from last winter, when Anita and I spent a few days in Seoul, Korea. These were all shot in or around Gyeongbokgung (the Royal Palace of the Joseon Dynasty). It was fricking cold out (mostly cause we'd spent a month acclimatizing to the heat and humidity of 'Nam), but the blue skies and pure whites of their snow were pretty spectacular scenes.
