Party Time, Excellent.

One day at lunch I leaned over to Elise and said: I once thought I had mono for an entire year. It turned out I was just really bored. At that moment, we knew it was fate to dress up as the famous Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar from Wayne’s…

Well that was fun

We made it back from our Redwoods trip. It was super fun. We went on some hikes, sat around campfires, visited a cheese factory, and didn’t talk much about work. I made everyone Corpse Revivers too. It was pretty fun being able to share one of my favorite areas of…

We are going to the redwoods

We are doing something we’ve never tried before. Everyone at EMRL is grabbing their significant others and heading up to the redwoods for a few days as a group to hang out, go hiking, look at giant trees, eat some food, drink some booze, drive thru some trees, check out…

I made an analog mess

Today I got to make a mess at work. Even more messy than my usual mess. A big happy sketchy drawing mess with paint and water colors and a lotta lotta pieces of paper. The only problem is my analog mess always ends up becoming a digital mess that takes…

Oops

Sometimes I like to noodle around on instruments while I’m thinking. It used to be a Takamine 12 string acoustic guitar with only 6 strings on it, but last month I let myself be decadent and bought an old Rickenbacker 4001. In my book, those are the best bass guitars…

Gotta Catch ’em All!

For the longest while, Ashley and I have been talking about Pokémon and how it was so nostalgic back in the good ‘ol days. I vaguely remember having a first generation Charizard card stashed somewhere in my parents’ shed back in Sydney. It was 5:05pm. Ashley was egging me to…

First Assistant Camera

Ken was my First Assistant Cameraman for a little over 10 years. He was 79 when I met him, and he was still freelancing on shoots whenever he could. Still lugging camera gear around. Still chasing after girls on set. Still being generally awesome.

Cats

I just really want to write about cats. Cats are super rad and they are cooler than your mom on a winter’s day. One has to ask though, why do cat people get such a bad rap? I don’t have any compelling arguments to change your preconceived notions about cats,…

In Soviet Russia, Camera Shoots You

I’ve always tried to be a creative person, but I usually just end up tagging along with the creative people hoping it will somehow rub off on me. The only praise I ever got on my creative attempts was from my mom. Thanks mom! But that’s ok, I somehow landed…

Nostalgia & Wanderlust

Recently, I was able to bring our ancient medium format film scanner back from the dead, and so I had a little fun scanning some old forgotten negatives. There was one roll of film I dug up that I especially enjoyed seeing again. It was from a road trip I…
