Cow Parade

Some of you might have heard of it. Its an event thats taking place in a few cities across the nation. Basically they give artists these cows, and they paint em however they want. Some are actually really cool. There is 117 in my city (Boston.) me and my friend alex are on a mission to take pics with all 117.

We're at 107.

Pics:


Me and the MBTA(transit) Cow


Alex and the COW! cow.

All the pictures: http://cowhunt.freepgs.com/cpg148/index.php

The bleeding hearts and artists
Make their stand.
And when they've given you their all
Some stagger and fall, after all it's not easy
Banging your heart against some mad bugger's wall.

They did something similar here not this past summer, but the one before. Since our local college's mascot is a Mastadon, they made Mastadons and had different artists create designs. It was pretty sweet until people started vandalizing them.

Where my mom lives (Saratoga Springs, NY big horse racing town), they did that except with horses.

Dallas does it with Pegasus I believe.

It's fun. You get to walk around the city - finding them all. We had a map but it was very vague on exactly where they were.

For one picture, i was having Alex jerk off one of the Cow's horns. A tour-trolly comes by, and the lady (over the microphone mind you) says. "Hey, whatcha doing to that cow?", and all the tourists look over and start taking pictures of him. it was hilarious he ran away in embarassment and hid behind a bush
