she's got the photos but no recollection...

thought i'd throw a few more up here while i was at it.


can it be that it was all so simple then...

i'm actually really surprised at the quality of photo the iphone4's camera can take. yes the photo posted here is heavily treated but standard pictures i take look sooooo much better with this little camera than the old p.o.s. that i have with the same mega pixel count.

i've been using filterstorm a little as well and so far it looks alright. i haven't tried to do anything drastic with it but for a quick clean up tool without having to resort aperture or something like it is pretty cool.

on such a winter's day

this is only the third post for this year and that worries me a little bit. i'm having trouble writing as it is so i hope i can get this back under control and start posting on the regular again.

a.m. architect's the road to the sun is fast becoming a favourite album. it's laid back, smooth jazzy tone is just so easy to fall in love with. it's not really instrumental hip hop or a dj album but draws heavily from both genres. by throwing in a layer of guitar and electric piano over top of it and stuttering it slightly you get the feel of listening to sample heavy music but it's obvious the tunes were written to sound that way, not just samples thrown on top of samples.

road to the sun ii is the best thing going since girls started wearing glasses. i've been to lazy to source where their samples came from but that vocal sample just breaks my heart every time i hear it. magic.

...of the way we were...

i just took the most random trip down memory lane. it would seem i have emails in one of my accounts from 99. so i did what any curious person would do, i went spelunking through the nooks and crannies of my own life. i'll tell you now, it was kind of an ugly trip.

i think i'm just posting this as a warning. clean out your in box. you probably don't want to remember every little thing you've done over the lat ten years. we forget the bad stuff as a defense mechanism and sometimes the good stuff is just taking up space we could use to remember a recipe.

one thing that amazed me was how many people i thought i never really talked to kept popping up. that was a cool surprise.

so yeah, apathy's a killer. i'm going to clean out my in boxes now and re-forget the bad stuff from the last ten years.

1/1/11

it's a brand spanking new year and i have the hang over sweats to prove it. last night was a helluva good time filled with more jeff's than you can shake a naked russian at. i'd forgotten how much fun a loft party could be strictly because of the characters that will, and always do show up at an open invitation to a large space with music, dancing and booze. i hope you had a happy new year's eve and spent it with loved ones.

just thought i'd recap the last year in a few short links for those folks that like to ask me what's been taking up all my time. to you i say:

http://www.poptent.net/user/OneMoreShotFilms plus a handful of other shorts i've worked on that i can't find links to at the moment.



that's about all the creative output i can muster links for right now but there are articles, and 101 posts on this blog alone. all and all i'd say it was a busy year with more new and fun stuff to come.

i hope you all had a wonderful 2010 and if that wasn't possible i hope you've learned something from last year at least. i may have actually learned that repeating your mistakes won't give you a chance to fix them, it just reminds you why it failed in the first place so stop trying to fix it and let it be.

happy new year!
