    Troy is famous

    and he got his picture in the paper too! Well not his actual picture, but a picture he took.

    He was apparently out doing his photography and came across a spoiled food dump.

    it was in the OC Register either last Friday or Saturday. Seemed he stumbled across a dumping ground for the local Orange County Food bank, who was supposed to be feed the homeless with it, not flies and ants in the desert..

    They stated his whole name and even had a quote from him.

    Good work Troy...

    And to keep it music related, I would like to invite everyone to pull out their copy of Future Days by the German rock group: "CAN" or the Dead Kennedys' release: "FRESH FRUIT FOR ROTING VEGETABLES"

    I must be asleep at the wheel.

    I was wondering where J came up with the line "that would be as dumb as dumping food in the desert to rot" in the last "50 Albums That Changed Music" thread, so now I know.

    Nice job Troy. So you're not just a pretty face?

    I'd kinda wondered about this. I saw some great stuff on your website and was considering some pics for the listening room. PM me if you do that sort of thing...

    No, I have a nice ass too.

    It's funny, all I did was put the images online as part of my daily ulpoading to flickr.com:

    http://flickr.com/photos/lostamerica...7600018073425/

    And a reporter from MSNBC found them, contacted me and the whole thing just kinda blew up from there. That story has really taken on a life of it's own. I understand it's breaking in the LA Times today too.

    Famous? Hardly. It's about the story, not me.

    LOL!

    Hey Troy, answer Bobsticks question, would ya? I think that it's a great idea! I need some new pictures/posters for my office. I ordered some stuff off of the Roger Dean web site, but one of your pics hanging in here would be really cool. Only not a pic of rotting food okay? If I want rotting food, I'll just open the door to the community fridge. ICK!

    I think this question is answered right on his website (or at least it used to be).
    And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew.

    Yah, Troy's web designer didn't count on dealing with the least observant person in the world...

    ..and all the pretty colors confused me.

    Heck yeah, I've got some. Plus if you like his photos you should grab his book. Really cool forward by Stan Ridgway which if you idolize the man like I do makes it worth the price. Oh, and there's some more pics in there too.

    Troy's pretty much the man. In San Fran that might not be saying too awful much but there you have it.

    Troy is cool. Some of his comp cover artworks are the bomb.

    I never met him personally yet, but he does owe me a beer.

    Plus he was on TV promoting his way of making toons.
