Got to jump in the van and go up to Santa Barbara with the Habitat team on their "Highways and Byways" tour.

Finally got to check out the Church of Skatan which is located in an actual old church.

Got the grand tour over at Powell. I managed to sneak off a few photos walking around.

    Mind of Marius: Shorty on Shorty's
    It takes a village to raise a child. And if that village is the Shorty's team, you might just end up with a genius. This blast from the past (with appearances from Wes, T-Puds, Daryl Angel and The Muska) proves Marius has always been on a special path. Or maybe it was that Hollywood High slam. Jeezus!
