Last Month's Nor'Easter

I took these last month on Ocean Drive when things were wild. I posted them on my own journal the next day, but I forgot to post them here. Enjoy!

Belcourt: The Final Mission

This is the ugliest side of Belcourt. You can see that there are roof tiles missing, broken fencing, and debris on the ground.

Note to cellrock: I know the south side is probably a disappointment, but Belcourt has been in various degrees of disrepair for ages. They don't have the same funding available as many of the other mansions, because they're privately owned. That was about as close as I could get without entering onto private property, which I'm not willing to do. By the way, where are you from? And why Belcourt?

Belcourt Castle - for Cellrock

I'll get more when the weather isn't so bad.

Note to cellrock

I love the picture of Belcourt Castle on your journal. I friended you btw. Your journal says, "Leave a note, I might friend you." But I can't leave a note since your journal is friend's only...hahaha...is that some cruel joke?

Sad News

How many of you know or remember the local band "No Means Yes" or their lead singer and bass guitarist Mr. Mike. The band moved to Seattle a few years ago because of the favorable climate for grunge rock, and they've been quite successful out there.

On Halloween night they were playing a private gig and during a break a fight broke out. Mr. Mike got stabbed. Yeah. He's ok, except a tendon in his wrist was severed and the doctors say he won't be able to play guitar for at least a year. I spoke to his father this morning, and the family is understandably quite upset, although they are very grateful it wasn't worse.

Mr. Mike's mom is a mail carrier in Newport and she's also my sister, making Mr. Mike my nephew. They tried to persuade him to come home to Newport, but he says he needs to stay out there and deal with this.

Mr. Mike is an awesomely rad dude, and would never hurt anyone. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Do You Sound Like a Rhode Islander?

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

Alex drove us to the Gateway Center to pick up Corinne. You can see him in the rearview mirror. Creepy.
