Chain stores, subdivisions, and highways

I have come to the conclusion that the image of Texas I have always had is wrong. Very wrong. Texas was supposed to be oil wells, cattle, pick-up trucks and guys in big cowboy hats.

Texas

I’m currently in Texas staying with my friend Scott Kurtz for a few days. He’s got a really nice Mac setup and hopefully I’ll figure out what I’m doing with my video camera and editing software before I leave here. If everyone is nice, I’ll try to have some video up this weekend. I drove […]
