Scan-master Flash

I've finally acquired both the time and technology to scan in some of my ancient and near-ancient pics--just 'cause.

The following are pics of the last fishing boat I worked on in Alaska/Russia. It was fucking cold that year ('90-'91) Note the Russian flag we were flying. This was on the Kamchatka Peninsula, near Korf. We were the first US-flagged fishing boat allowed into Russian waters after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Now there's a weird tale... Looks a little different than Phoenix.

Here's a pic of a codend so full that a deckhand had to climb out and cut it open, to relieve the pressure of enough fish to finally get it on board. Note how far out that codend extends into the water...

Much appreciated. Seems the birds are quite familiar with the goings on. They must have already taken the tour.

My scheduled shift ran 12 hours, but there were periods where we were required to work 18 hours, and one time I had to work 32 hours straight. Not crabber-hours, mind you, but still fucking crazy.

Old Hippie
The Bellamy Brothers


He turned thirty-five last Sunday

In his hair he found some gray

But he still ain't changed his lifestyle

He likes it better the old way

So he grows a little garden in the back yard by the fence

He's consuming what he's growing nowadays in self defense

He get's out there in the twilight zone

sometimes when it just don't make no sense

He gets off on country music
cause disco left him cold
He's got young friends into new wave
buts he's just too damn old
And he dreams at night of Woodstock
and the day John Lennon died
how the music made him happy
and the silence made him cry
Yea he thinks of John sometimes
and he has to wonder why

== Chorus ==

He's an old hippie

and he don't know what to do

should hang on to the old

should he grab on to the new

he's an old hippie

his new life is just a bust

he ain't trying to change nobody

he just trying real hard to adjust


He was sure back in the sixties
that everyone was hip
Then they sent him off to Vietnam
on his senior trip
And they force him to become a man
while he was still a boy
and in each wave of tragedy
he waited for the joy
Now this world may change around him
but he just can't change nomore

== Chorus ==

Well he stays away a lot now
from the parties and the clubs
And he's thinking while he's joggin' 'round
Sure is glad he quit the hard drugs
Cause him and his kind get more endangered everyday
And pretty soon the species
will just up and fade away
Like the smoke from that torpedo
just up and fade away
