draplin This guy was in Traverse City today. That'd be the courageous Luis Ortiz, who just happens to look like the Barry who runs the free world. From the incredible doc, "Bronx Obama." Life is weird. And, beautiful to see how something like this unfolds for a regular guy from the Bronx. You can't help but fall for him. Slay 'em, Luis! Incredible documentary, and all you turkeys BETTER GO SEE IT. @bronxobama @bronxobamamovie #greatdocumentaries #shityouneedtosee #mandatoryviewing #americanheroes #luisortiz 5h

draplin Any time. Any place. On the tube. In my head. The bowling ball in the closet? My favorite little fuckwad of film, ever. I love that part. A bowling ball. Right to the head. Laugh every damn time. #thankyoujohnhughes #thankyoujohncandy #midwesternism #mollyswart #gnatcircumcism #whatshislastname #spray 23h

draplin Each night when I head down to the basement to konk, I'll see this little guy on a can of paint, near Dad's lair. Always gets me. Nice little icon! #pleasingshapes #paintrollers #thicklines #missingdad #dadprojects #basementliving 1d

draplin Found this digging around Dad's stuff. Maybe Dad was an umpire before we came on the scene! Or maybe just another treasure from his "I Just Want One Of Everything" policy? Prob'ly the latter. #dadstuff #things #treasures #disassemblinganempire 1w
  •   katsola1 I have been finding little treasures among my dad's things too. Mostly letters and architectural things. One funny letter was when he was little at camp, it had an illustration he drew of something in the landscape. Very detailed and labeled. 1w

  •   jdjohnson When I was in high school, they had local kids come in and ump the young'ns. We used some cheap standard black counters. This is by far the greatest I've seen, would love to find one. 1w

draplin Cleaned out Dad's attic. Lots of old chairs, vintage car parts and Christmas stuff. Wish Dad was here to guide the festivities. Special thanks to Jake Newhouse (parental compound neighbor kid) for helping out. #summertime #dadliquidation #disassemblinganempire #sadbullshit #mouseturds #michigan #thanksdad 1w
