they’re coming to get us

Posted: December 20, 2009 in art?, nugget from the net

saw this amazing little flick while perusing the net.  turns out this little you-tube beauty cost the maker around $300 and it landed the film maker (fede alvarez) a $30,000,000 deal with ghost house pictures (the fellas responsible for the spider-man movies). so the next time someone makes fun of you for posting your work on you-tube you can point to fede and say… what if.  what do you think about it?

ok so i’m hanging out at the local coffee shop (who may get a shout-out if i can get me some free java) working on my newsletter and in order to break some things up I’ve been watching youtube videos of some time-lapse stuff. what’s been really cool is alot of the videos online are now being taken with dslr’s. i really believe that hd video on dslr’s is really one of the coolest things to happen in cameras in quite some time. i’ve been saving my pennies (but who am i kidding, what are pennies really worth these days anyway?) in hopes of someday having a dslr of my very own so that i can make videos to post on youtube with trippy techno music.

also wanted to include my buddy matt mccomas’ first venture into video with a dslr.

a day in photos

Posted: May 6, 2009 in art?
ok so i thought i would try something different that as far as i can think of nobody, at least nobody i know has done. every hour, on the hour, (or as close as i could get) i took a picture of what i was doing, or something around me. i figure that if a picture is worth a thousand words than a couple pics might show a day in my life a little better. so without further ado here’s my day.


aww, walmart in the morning, nobody around, just me and 15 other empty registers.

got bored so i stocked the gum’s in my isle and made sure they all lined up perfectly. a good job for someone who’s ocd.

i thought this was kinda funny… really nothing about walmart really springs great ideas… i mean this photo entry was thought up while there so you know. ps happy cinco de mayo.

got moved between the door and the deli, pretty much torture because i could see how nice and sunny it was outside and got to smell everyone’s lunch while i waited for my own.


it looks like these kids are giving their mom a wet willie. creepy. also don’t forget to get mom a card. all the good ones are probably gone but hey at least you tried right?
don’t even think of stealing stuff or ol’ silvia will stomp on your face with her size 13 sneakers. not really sure why she wears such large shoes but the fact of the matter is, you don’t question silvia.


i know i’m a geek, a nerd, a dork, but also more of a star wars guy, but one things for sure, i’m really looking forward to seeing star trek this weekend.

so yeah this is a fan, all the isles have them, that’s about it. not much going on… so close to being done.

clocking out for the day, now it’s time to head to make some support calls, and by sum, i mean a couple hours wort, out of the fire, into the frying pan.


bathroom break in between calls. for all the ladies out there, this is called a urinal, i know it’s sad, you’ll never get to use one.
grabbing a drink, support raising is hard work. thank goodness for free water.
in honor of whatever cinco de mayo is in honor of, nothing like some genuine mexican food to celebrate, something… also starting to rain.
the slam, @christownley talking about king david ‘acting a fool’ by dancing around in a priestly garment (=tighty whities). there’s really more to the story but i think you should just think about that for a while.

the aftermath of dancing/mosh pit after playing david chrowder’s undignified. fun to see them really get into it.
two of the coolest 7th graders you’ll probably never meet.

well that’s it, that was pretty much my day. it was fun. the end.
