It's been a good year for me (and Sarah). Sarah had a book come out, traveled around the world and a whole lot more (you can read about all that HERE if you so desire).
I got a few things accomplished myself.
A little list:
Didn't have a beard/had a beard/didn't have a beard
Had photos in 5 shows (2 solo)
Released a new zine (Sadkids #5)
Attended 2 portfolio reviews (one with Alec Soth)
Saw Jeff Wall and Lee Friedlander shows at SFMoma
Hosted Tim Briner at our old house for at least 3 weeks
Bought a 100 year old house in SF after Tim left
Shot at least 500GB of digital photos
Shot a bunch of rolls of film
Played a lot of Guitar Hero
Watched a zillion hours of TV (thanks TiVo)
Enjoyed music by MGMT, No Age, Man Man, Hank IV, Vivain Girls, Lil Wayne, Crystal Castles, Deerhunter, Nobunny, Jay Reatard...
Attended a lot of A's games
Made a ton of new friends (online and in real life)
Consumed numerous Bloody Marys, Beers and shots of Jager
Damaged and repaired 1 Leica M3
Visited Portland, Los Angeles, Reno, New York, Des Moines, Omaha, Memphis, Hawaii and Mexico
And made MILLIONS from the photo industry bailout...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Here are a few of my favorites:
