This was some footage I had from the BC rv trip that almost didn’t get uploaded. I filmed it with a crappy little Nikon point and shoot. This was near the start of the trip and it was more or less a warm up of what was to come. Well it has over 17k hits at the time I’m writing this, 1200 hits yesterday alone! It is all about the Battletoads because I never promoted this video further than my Facebook. Help me get it to 500k hits and I will get a Battletoad tattoo and post the video.
While in my thrift store bliss hunting for a few records, I witnessed this unhappy customer throwing a little temper tantrum complete with yelling and flailing arms. Usually this doesn’t accomplish anything but make you look like a jackass and probably getting thrown out of the store.
This was a few years back at a casino. The man was a bit out of place with his large backpack in a fancy casino and he took me by surprise. I do see and admit that it was wrong for me to bother the man.

I opted out of that! Here is the info Worldstarhiphop.com sent me on their video submission pricing if you don’t believe me! http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/video-guide/
A day of exploration turns into a day of video editing resulting in the completed project above. Great abandoned location near Reno, Nevada. This is in an old railroad and mining town.
The long awaited adventures of BCRVII. One year after the first Battlecam RV, they are at it again. Where will they go and who will they meet? Battlecam.com ftw!
Last February Patches had some health issues and had one of those lamp shades on her head. Never knew they made them for cats but anything is possible in this surreal world. Where are these two guys btw? Battlecam burnout must have got them too. Maybe I’m not around as often, but I still take the time to cam up until 5 in the morning talking about non-sense and drinking beer. I see no reason not to. When other things in life become a bigger priority than casting on Battlecam, maybe it’s time to reevaluate your life. Picture is from 2-13-2013. I hope Patches made a full recovery and Dean and Chosn have a BC relapse soon.
Due to the extreme overload of graffiti pics I have taken over the last 20 years, it is time to start releasing some of these photos back out to the public from which they came. If you don’t know, I have always been a graffiti aficionado since around 9 or so years of age on my first train ride, a trip to visit family with my mom down to Bakersfield. I have a strong memory of an anatomically correct man /woman, half and half, like a science chart with the words “pussy dick” spray painted and arrows pointing to each one. But it goes back further, probably to when I was 4 or 5 years old, as I am recollecting while I write this, seeing words and small pictures mostly done in pencil at the schoolyard near my house. It’s always been there and I have always loved it. I like it grimy and raw, without permission, wherever the creator chooses to create it. That’s the real shit that pushes the boundaries and invokes a reaction. That raw graffiti, the stuff the Don’t Matters call vandalism, is something I will admire for the rest of my life. With no further adieu, I present to you a new chapter of Ruen’s World, something embedded in my past, present, and future, and in no particular order.
