Heh. My memory of Vegas: It was like being inside a pinball machine.

there was a lot of porn in vegas, too, i thought; but what struck me mostly was the way it suddenly changed off the main drag.

the bum that kept yelling at us was freaky, too.

That's exactly how I described it to someone after a visit about twenty years ago... :)

laugh it up, buddy. You'll be old too one day. And there'll be some younger jerk laughing at you in your place.

Like they say in Hollywood, he's not deep but he's shallow.

Nice Nowhere Near, BTW, but I could have used a couple of angry blacks about to scrag the old guy..

thanks. can't take much cred for this one, as usual.

you know, i didn't see many angry black people in vegas. i saw a lot of sad hispanic people, however, many of them standing in the main drag handing out cards for strip joints and call girls.

Well, you didn't wander far enough off the strip. :)

My pinball image derives directly from a night spent gambling in the MGM Grand. Fairly horrifying in that no one else seemed appalled by the jangle...

mine came from walking down the median strip at twilight dodging drunks sucking on yard glass margharitas going 'holy fuck! look at all the lights'.
