About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870. The "xothique" portion of the web address is a nod to Clark Ashton Smith's fictional continent of Zothique.

Jesus Truck Repair, at the Dawn of the Nineties


The text elements I added to this 1990 Playboy-photo calendar, originated from tweets of El Jefe, and a couple sentences from a text of Dutch Schultz's final testimony, combined and run into an online cut-up machine, or two.  Tweak their tweets and timelines.

A friend of mine, at the time, retrieved (and then gave to me) the curiosity from the belt, at a recycling plant where he then worked.  Below is a Nepali-import calendar, from later in that now-distant decade.

The site of Jesus Truck Repair, is now occupied by Old Town Music

Happy New Year! Maybe the 20s will roar again, or rhyme, starting in a year....
