Photos and Words of Patrick Calder

I live in Washington, DC with 1 cat named Pixel, 6 cameras, 3 computers, 158 movies, 286 books, and 1 bowling pin. I own the Design Foundry and pretend to be a graphic designer by day.

Please keep in mind that this post is more than 3 years old. Opinions change. Tastes change. Everything changes. I may still agree with or like this, or I may not. But everything is kept up here for archival purposes.

Definitions / April 3, 2004

In what may become a ongoing thing, here are a few definitions that most people don’t know, and I’ve been unable to find online:
White Hots: Apparently a Central New York phenomenon. A type of hot dog, originally produced by Zweigles, in Rochester, NY. When uncooked, they are all white, apparently due to a lack of any nitrates or food coloring in the production process. This supposedly makes them healthier. They have a distinctive taste, which tends to make them a personal preference; not for everyone.
Shit-Kickers: Heavy duty work boots, usually military issue. Black leather with thick soles. Popular in punk rock and redneck circles.
