FOR THOSE ABOUT TO ROCK

Portlanders, you should go to the AC/VC 2008 art show on Saturday, August 30th, 2008. Over 50 artists from all mediums (photo, video, multi-media, painting, drawing, etc.) and beer and live music to boot! It starts at 6pm, is free til 10pm and the party lasts until 2am! Oh, did I mention I have 5 photos in the show? (226 SE Madison, PDX) Go, go, go!

JUNK, IT'S NOT JUST A BOAT FROM CHINA ANYMORE

Junk in the Midwest is really good. In Omaha I went to a place called Fairmont Antiques and we bought a bunch of cheap, cool stuff, and in Des Moines I went to some crazy spot called Collectamania. You'd only like it if you enjoy rummaging through dirty, unorganized, Sanford and Son-style places. But those are my favorite kind, so I loved it.

080808 STATE

Last week Sarah and I went to Omaha. We got in and I had a few hours to drive around and shoot. I was running on empty but Omaha was totally inspiring so I kept going. It was full of tons of photographable goodies. It deserves a serious revisiting. Must...Go...Back...Soon...

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

Did some great stuff while in NYC. Got to have dinner and nerd out on photography with Tim Briner, Amy Stein, Amani Olu, Greg Wasserstrom, and Alison Malone after seeing a show that Jon Feinstein was in. Went to my first and last game game at Yankee stadium (my Oakland A's lost). Took a trip on Evan G's boat up the Hudson with Sarah, Julia Allison and Sophie Askew. Saw the waterfalls. Went to Brooklyn for the first time to see Tim's place. Ate and drank too much. Took a lot of subway trains to various locations. Dropped off issues of the new Sadkids Number 5 (signed!) at Dashwood Books. Could this post have more links? You get the idea.
