Monster Jam

Last night I witnessed my first live Monster Truck Jam. In fact, I never even witnessed the bizarre event on the television. It’s the kind of drama I often avoid.

The camera policy read “No video or audio recorders. No professional cameras.” So I left my gear at home. I am in love with these shitty “high Def”, zoomed mobile photos. I deem them high art.

Where’s the next Jam?
