GABO v.13 :: The Chris & Rusti Edition!

It’s really too bad that the number 13 has such a bad stigma attached to it. Is it really “unlucky?” And if you attach the word “Friday” to it people think that it’s the end of the world. It was clear that the only way to disperse some of the bad stigma for the thirteenth post of the Great American Blog Off was to pick a truly extraordinary couple for the blog.

It’s not as easy as it sounds.

I couldn’t summon the help of my colleagues, because I knew that they wouldn’t have the slightest idea of how to choose the perfect couple to ward of the evil numbered aura. I sat for days brainstorming, thinking, pondering, wondering, and furling my forehead. I tried doing difficult math equations and reading Einstein’s biography in Swahili to help push my brain to the limits. I traveled the world, speaking with witch doctors, psychics, natives, scholars, priests, and even wood nymphs. Unfortunately, their advice could not help me pick the perfect couple. I came back to the studio, sad and dejected. When I sat down at my desk, I thought that this would seriously be an end to the blog.


The one and only official robot of Otis & James, Orlace Hanes, had come to the rescue! He had found the perfect couple to “lucky the unluckiness” of the number 13, Chris & Rusti! (He wouldn’t really tell me how he found them. I assume it had to do with nanotechnology, circuits and logic boards. As I’ve said before, we’re simple photographers, we don’t fool with those intricate details). So, we have to thank Chris & Rusti for being so spectacular, so phenomenal, so… un-thirteenish… yeah. That’s all I got.
