"I'm all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let's start with typewriters."
- Frank Llyod Wright
This weeks quote comes from Frank Lloyd Wright. I picked it because the other day I was at the shop bitching to anyone who would listen about some bullshit I seen in my Facebook news feed. His quote rings so true today. Without bitching and moaning about social media I will say this and move on... Just because you read it on the internet doesn't make it true! Think and research before you react. Basically don't be the fool Frank Lloyd Wright is talking about.
Who is Frank Lloyd Wright you ask? My opinion, one crazy ass architect:
"Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called "the best all-time work of American architecture". His creative period spanned more than 70 years. (Stolen from Wikipedia)"
Now that we've learned about Frank, lets roll on to something else like... WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU READING? I ask because I am looking for a new book to get lost in. I have been reading a lot of Charles Bukowski books. I am not sure if it's the reason I have an extra crazing of booze, broads, and booze with swear words sprinkled on top for flavor. Who knows, probably just an excuse to say broads in the newsletter. If you do have any recommendations please tweet that shit to me at @rob_fenn
Last week I announced that the weekly photo to benefit Best Friends Animal Society was Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless. This week I am keeping it the same.

(It'll be James of Metallica) There's your hint.
