The Ill Communication

Here are five random images I found on my phone.  All of them are 7+ years old!  Eeek!

This is the only Del Taco I've been to that had these cool looking bottles set up as decorations at the condiments table.  They were illuminated from the inside and represented their three hot sauces including Del Taco's signature Del Scorcho and Del Inferno plus good ol' fashioned Heinz Ketchup.


A co-worker told me he knew of a donut shop that sold these massively huge donuts near where he lived.  Not believing him, he bought me one as proof of its existence…and he was right.  It was big.  So big in fact that I needed to place a dollar bill next to it so when I tell others about this mythical blob of flour, sugar, and oil as a reference for just how massive this thing actually is.


I didn't know it at the time that this was going to be rare, but this photo was taken when I went to a live taping of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brian.  This is not to be confused with Late Night with Conan O'Brien that he did between 1993 and 2009 or the show that he currently does on TBS.  This is the short lived 2009 – 2009 show he did after Jay Leno passed it to him and before Jay stole the show back only after Conan hosted it for only a few months.


I found an arcade that had Street Fighter IV in the US.  This was at the time before the console versions were released, but shortly after Japan arcades got them.  Rumors were going around that some arcades in the US actually had SF4 setups and I happened to come across one in Walnut, CA at an arcade called Super Arcade that specialized in arcade games from Japan.  Man was that a rad arcade; spent some time in there during my college years.  Good times.


A pretty cool indi game shop that has since closed down.  Many classic games were bought here that are now in my collection.
