I don’t recall who won this game, but I’m sure it was Iowa State by a lot as the Gene Chizik era was starting to gain momentum…

Next Saturday’s walk down memory lane looks to be some tree and night photography.

Pie in Micky’s Face

Last year’s Battle for the Cup came down to a tie again this year. Instead of having a rigged turtle race to determine The Witch, the two tied combatants decided to roll with an old fashioned Pie In Your Face competition.

Here are a few pictures from the battle:

Michelle is the new The Witch. There was a peaceful transfer of power from Cathie to Michelle at Zeno’s in Marshalltown. A good time was had by all.

This brings us to the time where we reveal this week’s theme…


WEEK 11 - RELIGION
RELIGION!

I told you it would be something that isn’t in everybody’s comfort zone. However, I hope there is still a good amount of submissions.

Time for a definition:

religion – noun – a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.

And of course… time for a couple of housekeeping notes from PHOTOGRAPHY 139’S SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION.

Michael Houlihan has become the latest person to show taste, class and sophistication by becoming a Photography 139 subscriber. So if you see Michael prowling the mean streets of Ames, Iowa you can give him a knowing glance and of course, the super secret Photography 139 handshake.*

Other sidenote, only 1 person responded positively to the return of the Proust Questionnaire, therefore it will not be making a December return. Take that Proust!

*A loyal subscriber has volunteered to create a Photography 139 handshake. They will then run their creation by my handshake expert. It is possible, that there will be a video on how to do the handshake in the nearish future.

Taco Tailgate

In honor of Tacoctober a few friends from the mine and I held a taco tailgate before the Iowa State-Texas Christian football match recently. It seemed like a good time to squeeze off a few shots on the new toy.

Here are a few shots from Taco Tailgate 2015:



Since it is well established how I feel about koozies, my chums made sure I got one. Any way, anybody want a bottle koozie?


Jorge and Joe, placing the goodness on the grill.


More goodness.


Waiting for the goodness.


Houlihan chopping up the meat.

Taco goodness!


Most of the tailgating equipment in years past has been provided by the Brog Frog Tailgating Company. Since they have closed down for business, I had to scramble for equipment this year. I found this table in my Mom’s garage. It is the perfect size for the trunk of my car.

Plans are already in motion for Taco Tailgate 2016.Play your cards right, you might just wrangle an invite. We are going to add a second taco recipe and hopefully upgrade some of our equipment. High on the want list is a tailgating canopy and a better grill. The fight goes on.
