my new specs

well, a middle school kid broke my glasses a few months back. they were internally cracked somehow, and, while still functional, not quite right. i tried to use some ‘gorilla glue‘ to fix them, but forgot that it foams up and expands while hardening. so i ended up with this big crusty brown goiter on the front of the frames. i used an x-acto knife to shave that off, but then had to use a black sharpie to re-color an area where i’d cut back too far. in the end, the glue didn’t hold anyhow. and the prescription was no longer right for me either.

so… new glasses.

not quite as cool as the last ones (i received at least one positive comment about the old ones on each of my four airline segments over the last two days). but the new ones were cheaper, and i can’t justify spending top dollar on designer frames anymore.

without further ado… (oh, and i got my hair shaved off last week in prep for the haiti trip)

  1. Hey Marko. i always love your glasses. I wear plastic frame or half rimmed glasses usually too. My photographer friend turned me onto a website for glasses about 2 years ago. It changed my life completely when it comes to specs. I usually have decent insurance where i can spend a little extra and be happy with one pair of glasses. http://www.zennioptical.com
    ok…had to get my prescription and measurement between my pupils…but with that stuff, i was able to get 4-5 pair of glasses for about 60 bucks. These aren’t brand name frames..but they look like they are. They have plastic lenses…with prescription so its awesome. Check it out please. I’m wearing a pair i have had for over a year now. God bless your time and efforts in haiti!

  2. I think your glasses look great!!! You look very….. wait I need to put on my glasses. OH…..well – I can see now and AHHH How’s the weather?

  3. I did that once with gorilla glue too (forgetting about the expanding part). nice hairdo and beard, dude. i’ve never seen you in your “lumberjack” look. nice.
