Carl Burton Photography

Last fall I spent several long weekends completing a photography portfolio website for my friend Carl Burton. Carl has become a very good friend since I've been in New York and his photography is an inspiration to me to keep pushing myself to do more. Among other goals, I wanted Carl to be able to manage the uploading and ...

Destroyer @ Bowery Ballroom

I finally saw Dan Bejar play with Destroyer last night after being into him for a few years now. He has been one of my most played artists over the past year. Not only as part of Destroyer but with his other bands Swan Lake and The New Pornographers as well. It was great to finally see him and hear ...

In the subway

I finally took my camera out in the subway this morning and took a few pictures. I've been wanting to do it for a long time but couldn't make myself do it until now. I hope to keep taking some every day.

The camera can't just be in the bag, you have to have it out around ...

Hot time, summer in the city

The earth has thawed and given a glimpse into warmer days here in New York. I don't know if I've ever been this excited for the summer to come. Especially, walking around Union Square every day. Making it through the winter in New York makes you feel as if you really have earned the right for the summer ...

Black Book and French Kicks

I went to a Black Book magazine party at 1Oak in Chelsea last night as I work near them with my new job. I was feeling kind of sick after some bad sushi but did my best to drink through it with the complimentary Skyy Vodka. I ended up having a good time anyway. I think I saw the guy ...

Blood on the Tracks

The last couple of evenings I've been listening to Bob Dylan - Blood on the Tracks on vinyl on repeat (manual repeat). I've had it for awhile but hadn't totally absorbed it like I have until recently.

I've been on a big Bob Dylan kick recently. Trying to get most of his albums on vinyl when I ...

Handsome Furs @ Bowery Ballroom

I saw the Handsome Furs last night at Bowery Ballroom with Emily. I'm always up for seeing most any Canadian rock band and even more so if they have any relation to Wolf Parade.

The Handsome Furs are Dan Boeckner and his wife Alexei Perry. The music is much moreo stripped down than Wolf Parade as its just Boeckner ...

Making it Green

I've spent a considerable amount of spare time on and off over the past several months working on an updated revision of my website. I decided to take on the task of building a blogging system on top of django instead of using wordpress. I started teaching myself python and django about 6 months ago and have enjoyed working ...
