Kid Licorice

This is an iPhone photo dump.

Just a random store.

Rabbit statues, like kittens and old people, enjoy a good sunbeam.


Mysterious sidewalk painting. Artist unknown.

Sometimes, if you stand at the edge of the beach and look out at the water, you can see the curvature of the earth. It is more easily observed in this photo.

I choose to interpret it as “Unauthorized vehicles will exist at vehicle owner’s expense.”

  1. I've always thought the seaweed on the beach looked like the insides of audio tapes.

    Is the post title a reference to Captain N, or am I the only one dorky enough to think it might be?

  2. I recently heard someone misspeak the URL of my blog as "kid licorice" and it amused me. So it has that in common with Captain N, I guess. This person only know it as my blog URL, while I most directly associate the name with the video game. If it takes you back to Saturday morning cartoons, I say go with it.

    The Captain N version of the character, I feel I must note, is god awful. Who thought it would be a good idea to give him the idiotic speech impediment that forces him to add the suffix "-icus" to the end of every third or fourth noun? Why does that make sense?

  3. For some reason, speech impediments were big in children's shows of the time. I don't get why a character who's supposed to be Greek would constantly add Latin endings, but the writers probably didn't think it through that much. And wasn't the character actually named Pit, anyway? Nobody on the show referred to Simon Belmont as "Castlevania Guy." But yeah, I think there was an episode where someone called him "Kid Licorice."

  4. I actually really like that sidewalk painting. Was it for sale or just sitting there up for grabs? If it was grab-able, I hope you took it. If it was for sale, how much was it (and which sidewalk)?
