Boys and Their Beer

I've tried to post this caption for months, but each time I do, I find another typo and it goes back into my working folder. Groan. Anyway, I think I've got it right this time. I think.

Unorthodox Methods

Another one of those photos that was just so goofy weird sexy that I had to find a caption for it...

Some Delays Possible...

For the next three weeks or so, I may not be able to post every day. We've got some big family stuff going on (good stuff, not bad) that's going to leave me very busy and without much free time. I'm hoping that late at night will still be quiet, but I'm not going to stress or anything just to meet my own artificial schedule. I'll post as often as I can, but don't worry that I've dropped off the face of the earth or stopped captioning if a day or four go by without any new posts.

Top Model

Another one of those images that just demanded a caption ... but for which I found myself at a loss for something that really did the image justice. Hopefully, what I came up with works.

Not Happy: Copyright Takedown Notice & Dead Hard Drive

When I woke up this morning and checked my email, I found that I'd received another copyright takedown notice for an image that I used for a caption (Broken Plate) several months ago. It's not worth the effort to fight. Even if the use is non-commercial and may be fair use, it's just not worth it. But it upsets me anyway. I don't see how posting that image, with a caption added, harms the owner of the copyright in the image itself. I'm not taking away sales of the image or reducing its value. I'm not claiming any ownership in the image. All I'm doing -- all that the captioning community is doing -- is having a little innocent (if X-rated) fun.

And on top of that, I found that one of the external hard drives that I use to store images that I might choose to caption is completely and totally dead. I'm hoping that the problem is the power supply such that I can yank the drive itself out and install it in another enclosure, but that's a project for a long weekend that I don't have right now.
