I play with video

From my new tiny video camera. The sound quality is impressive, the degree to which YouTube Crunches it is not welcome.

Brushes with greatness

I went to college with this guy. Ward Anderson was a comic then too, but in much worse shape.

I venture out in the middle of the day with camera

To the studios of Griffin Mastering, conveniently located six doors down the street.

The quote of the afternoon was by the new harmony singer: “My armpit smells like hamburger.”

Rest In Peace Sarah Stever

Yesterday I received a call from a friend telling me that a friend of ours, Sarah Snow Stever had passed away at the age of 35, from a stroke apparently. It’s very sad; I didn’t know her that well, mostly from various bluegrass jams, and I only met her husband once, but it’s shocking to realize that someone so young can be taken from us all. Sarah, we’ll miss you.

Obituary here.

Loving the new camera

The new D-80 quite nice. From the A-Sides show at A Capella books last night. That’s my guitar.

Circle of friends

I often read the surveys filled out by the happy wanderers of MySpace. One of the recurring questions is “Are your friends mostly male or female?”.

Were one to put a timer on the amount of time I spend talking/hanging out with people, I imagine I would spend a slight majority of my time with my male friends, but in absolute numbers, I would imagine that two thirds of my friends are female.

Interestingly, while my conversations with my male friends tend to be general purpose, conversations with the female friends tend to be more specialized. Some I talk to just talk to about work, some about art, some about music, some about family, and one I talk to almost exclusively about health and emotions. It’s odd when you think about it.

Missy in the Noir Ground

I just posted the photos I took on Saturday night. The goal of the project is to capture pictures of people silhouetted against interesting backgrounds. These turned out a bit noirish but on the whole I like them. Definitely too much foreground lighting for good silhouettes though.

Happy 32 Mr Leland

I just got back from dinner with the House of Leland (celebrating Adam’s recent birthday) at Manuel’s Tavern. I had a nice time. Upon my return through the ever-flooded Dekalb County streets I find that Drex has torn down more of the blinds. Oh well.

Here are the photos I took
