If things have seemed quiet around metacool, that's because they have been quiet around metacool.
I was out on a vacation for the past couple of weeks, and took a fast from everything web-related (except for Twitter, which doesn't feel the same to me), including email and blogging and everything else I do via Firefox. I highly recommend it. I should have plenty of stuff coming out over the next few weeks.
Anyhow, the fast is now broken. The photo above was taken at Dirty Al's, home of some of the best fried shrimp I've ever had in my life. I highly recommend those, too.
So, didja get any fishing in down there? Great shrimp, but also some fantastic fishing in the Gulf.
