REAL TALK

Its 7 and a half minutes, and well worth the time. No matter what your belief on gay marriage is you kinda have to give it to NYS Senator Savino. The woman has some valid points. I personally don't want anything to do with marriage till it is a right for all people.

Birdcage

Just a tintype of me.

My favorite song of the week.

Café Tacuba
Ojala Que Llueva Café
This song is pretty much Latin Woody Guthrie

Another big timer.







Abelardo Morell is a mind melter of a Cuban man. He is one of my favorite black and white printers. Find me an inkjet print that compares to one of his silver gelatins. You can't!!!!

Here is the trailer for a documentary about him and his photography. I love seeing other photographers work spaces. I don't know why, but it is kind of like seeing behind the curtain in OZ. I like to see amazing people make amazing things with the same goofy stuff that I use.

Charlie




Charlie is as solid of a human as they make. A true stand up fellow. Charlie has done more than his fair share in making me who I am today. He let me live in his pantry in Chicago for a few years, he is a high school math teacher, he once bought me an iPod, and he has large teeth.

Seriously though Charlie is the shit.

Fearful ignorance.

Holy hell!!! Why are people so anti-education. Seriously there are some pretty interesting things to learn that are not presented on T.V. or in books written by people who don"t read books.

The Pinhole Camera

About a year ago a fellow pinhole maker and user Brian Krummel contacted me about contributing one of my pinhole images and an artist bio for an instructional pinhole book he was going to make. I wrote a little artist bio and sent him an image not knowing if anything would become of it.

Here is my image in the book.

About a year later and the book just came out. It is pretty much an encyclopedia of pinhole photography. I am waiting patiently for my copy to arrive. Anywho if you want to know about pinhole photography this is the book to check out.



You can buy it here.

Here is one of Brian's photos that he traded me for on of mine. He shoots with paper negatives a lot and I can respect that.

Round 2


If you have $10.00 and want to support Skateistan then your in luck. I am selling more Skateistan shirts. 100% of the proceeds are going to Skateistan, so if I am throwing down the money to make the shirts you can help by buying them and all that $ goes straight to the kids in Kabul. So help me help someone else. Not to mention I live in a small apartment with no room for hundreds of t-shirts.

Buy them here--
Skateistan Shirts!!!!!!!

Now is a perfect time to pitch in. Skateistan is opening its doors to the children of Afghanistan at the end of this month.

More info on Skateistan and photos here-

Name Sake



I've always said my name is perfect for an 8 year old and an 80 year old. I am in that odd stage between those ages.

Thanks to the nameless person who emailed me the image of this mug.

The fruits of my labor

Yeah Board Shop buttons!!!!

For the 3 1/2 people who look at my blog, most people don't know that I am a board certified button maker. Been doing it for years. I make buttons for a few businesses. I kind of want to put more effort into getting some new customers. So if any of you know a small business that could use some cheap promotional items. Let me know or let them know or let someone know. Anyone. I am a shitty business man, but that usually means I will make buttons for people for cheap and wont make any profits, and apparently that is what I should be more focused on.

And you know this how?

Fine examples of some of my fellow country men and women. Well informed, and very thoughtful to say the least.

Puerto Rico tourist photos

Old San Juan. This is what Puerto Rico must have looked like before all the fucking Church's Chickens.

My tour guide.

Me in shorts, a rare sight. Taking a break from skating in Arecibo.

City chickens doing what city chickens do best lurk.

Feeling it.

Bye for a week.
