Mudslide Jackson

This here is Mudslide Jackson. He is the newest guardian warrior. He is a beer drinking man. When it gets late, he sings "The Hymn to Ninkasi", a prayer to the Mesopotamian goddess of beer. If you know the tune - sing along. He likes a party. You wouldn't call him a social butterfly by any stretch, but he knows how to have a good time. Never worn a lampshade on his head - but then the places he hangs out don't really have a lot of lampshades. He is more of a "dive bar" kind of dude. As Playboy described dive bars in 2010 (it is the only magazine he reads) 
“A church for down-and-outers and those who romanticize them, a rare place where high and low rub elbows — bums and poets, thieves and slumming celebrities. It’s a place that wears its history proudly.”
 Mudslide wears his scars like tokens to a life well lived. If you have a little trouble relaxing - he is the guy for you. So, sit a spell, listen to the twang of honky tonk music and let him tell you about the time he drove all night just to get some Bar-B-Que or the hitch-hiker he picked up in Helena, Montana or . . . well he has been around.
Take a load off with Mudslide where the beer is cold, the music grungy and the stories tall!

Life is short. We seek adventure where we can find it. If you would like to travel along - follow the crumbs we leave on the blog. Photographic Illustrations, bricolage art and Relic Hunting are our methods. If you don't have a good time - you aren't trying.
