The window was open and the birds were singing. I was still too tired to get up, but remembered we had asked the big guy in the front for a 7 am wake up call, so why was the sun up and the birds singing? I got up slowly to check and it was 8, […]

Tuesday was New Years Eve

by Will Sanders on January 11th, 2013
So Latoya got up looking like she had just flown around the world without much sleep only to get herself stuck at the airport without money, which she did. I was bouncing up and down about going to Fez, but realized she may need a bit to adjust to the shock of it all and […]

We’re on the road to Morocco

by Will Sanders on January 4th, 2013
I paced back and forth around my dad’s place on Friday morning. It was 8:30, but it was Christmas week, shouldn’t we be leaving for the airport at 8:30? It is an international flight that leaves at 12:30 from the busiest airport in the world after all. I had told my father the night before […]

Endless Indonesia Ending

by Will Sanders on May 1st, 2012
I was thinking of doing one of these here pretty soon anyways, but Stussy asked and so Stussy gets.  Sorry it’s been so long.  I guess I just lost touch with doing it, and I think that part of the problem is when you stay somewhere long enough just driving to work and walking down […]

by Marcus Rosentrater on December 28th, 2011

Just ain’t Christmas without non-stinging jelly fish, you know?

by Will Sanders on February 8th, 2011
First, I want to thank my buddy Stussy for sending me cds of his show WORST CASE SCENARIO along with a cool cd of Indonesian hardcore.  Literally it will take me hours and hours to dig through, and I can’t wait.  So nice to get mail from back home too, especially music.  So if you […]

The fucking Professor

by Will Sanders on November 8th, 2010
Don’t worry Professor, I won’t get all sloppy.  I just want to tell a bunch of people who already know how amazing you are.     Nicknames frequently come and they go, usually just as fast.  I knew a guy named Tick because he liked that comic in highschool so stuck with it he was for about […]

All Around the Mulberry Bush…

by Will Sanders on September 23rd, 2010
So, anyone ever ran for their lives down and up part of a mountain in the jungle from a wild and batshit crazy primate?  Sure, sure.  did it a month back.  Here goes: Two months have seen me on three new islands, well, two new islands and Sumtra.  Sumatra is an old friend of mine, the first glimpse […]

Dog Stories

by Will Sanders on May 5th, 2010
I hugged my sister, a good hug to last another year.  I told her what a great time I had had with her kids, my nieces.  Little Emma had been following me around hollering “Bunka will Bunka Will” she couldn’t say Uncle.  And Lucy is three weeks old and I held her and woke up […]
