NxtUp...Legacy

Resale Outlet Party

A Board Member of Legacy Community Health, Tim M., had a party at the Outlet and as a gift a donation was accepted. Shown are a few pics from the event. The first pic is some saucy minx named Brandon. Being quite the flirt he helped make the party a success.
When I met the seemingly straight fella, he mistakingly called me "Roman", henceforth I have named him "Brit".

"The resale outlet continues to seek donations of items to be displayed and sold at the store location at 1232 Westheimer on Houston's renowned resale shopping district. All sales at the resale outlet directly benefit the mission of the agency to provide quality healthcare services to underserved Houstonians.

A Lasting Legacy Resale Outlet accepts artwork, furniture, lamps, glassware, china, vases, bar ware, tchotchkes, empty vases, gently worn clothing, good shoes, purses, clean rugs, lamp shades, jewelry, scarves, books and more."

Projectrho-dot-com is an unbelievable site. "It is the homepage of Winchell D. Chung jr. Master of 3-D starmaps, illustrator of Ogres, and aficionado of slide rules, astrolabes, nomograms, sundials, and other obsolete instruments." I never said I wasn't a big freakin' geek.

Yondu from the Guardians of the Galaxy

Nuno Plati drew this and I found it on Project Rooftop. This chararacter is so cool to me. "Yondu was created back in 1969, but I best remember him from the early nineties Guardians of the Galaxy series by Jim Valentino. If you’re familiar with Star Trek, I’d classify Yondu as one part Vulcan and one part Klingon."

Clive Barker's Jericho

Ther will be a demo on PlayStationNetwork this week. "The game looks to be incredibly violent, so if you've got children that like the bask in the warm glowing warming glow of the PS3, you may want to scurry them off to bed before mutilating some creepy critters. We're not sure what the demo actually entails, but we're willing to bet you get to try your hand at all the characters in the first level: the city of Al-Khali."
