I was dreamin' of a steel guitar engagement

from: pho le (above Bale in chinatown)
price: $6
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
listening to: the stones
comments: today hey ritchie and I went for pho, then took lots of slo-mo video of him riding his bike. I have learned a lot having this slo-mo camera. 1) only shoot the real action in slo mo, otherwise the clips are way too long and useless. 2) you need a lot of harddrive space for all the slo-mo clips you will take. 3) you need a lot of time to edit all the footage you will inevitably shoot. so, n ovideo today. click to see the classic titl shift wiggly.

and hey ritchie had:

comments: click to see hey hey hey hey ritchie ritchie ritchie ritchie!

listening to: peter gabriel
comments: the image linked here, is sort of a contest. ed lambke made this collage. your mission is to try and name the 50 ed, edwards, or eddies in that pic. ok, I know, that's way too hard. no one could ever name all 50. technically, there is 1 without an "ed" in his name. but he's got the "ward".

comments: so, there's this thing that tommy and I do at work. shoot rubber bands at each other. my way of doing that is to try to bounce my shots off the ceiling, and hopefully get them in his drink. doesn't happen very often. but we always seem to have less and less ammo. today I climbed up to the ceiling and looked in this little beam that's up there. there's maybe a 1 inch opening atop this beam, and that's where I found 21 elastics!!! crazy. click to see.

salty fish n chicken fried rice
comments: click tommy's rice (he said it was very good), to see the same head, after running it through to HDR treatments. it's not really the HDR-ness that is interesting. it's more the way the hdr program tried to line up my unaligned photos, then I made a wiggly of that. it might hurt your brain to look at.
