  • God help us (pun intended)

    I can’t believe what I just read:
    Alec Baldwin’s younger brother Stephen is throwing his support behind President George W. Bush in the forthcoming presidential election, because his country’s leader is “being led by God.”
    The former liberal and now born-again Christian is attending the Republican National Convention in New York to cheer on the current president, who he believes has more faith than Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry.
    Baldwin tells Page Six, “I’m there to support the man I believe has the most faith.
    “That’s who I’m voting for. I believe the next president should be a guy who is being led by God.

    Attention people of the U.S.: we should not pick our President based on his faith! I won’t preach about my dislike for our current leader, but please — vote on the issues, or at least along party lines!

  • Yeah, what he said

    This article at Digital Photography Review sound familiar? I’ve been complaining about the site he discusses plus another one for well over a year. We just can’t seem to stop these guys from stealing from us… it’s not work the legal cost of going after them, but boy would I like to see them out of business.
    Update: Phil’s trick worked and got them to take down the stolen content! He also removed the article that I linked to above.

    Am I the only one disturbed by the idea of pouring syrup out of the top of some old woman’s head? It is pretty tasty stuff (even though it’s hardly authentic) but the concept bothers me. This same company owns Uncle Ben’s and Aunt Jemima products too, which seem a bit racist in the 21st century.

    Taken from the 27th floor of the Grand Hyatt in SF. Three shots stitched into one (it’s not perfect, but I didn’t have a tripod). Camera used: Canon PowerShot S70.
    We also took some fisheye shots with a very expensive digital SLR of the future which I won’t be able to share online, most likely.

    When you’re driving on the freeway and see a sign that says something like “Freeway closed at Railroad Ave. Alternate route Bailey Rd”, take the alternate route! Being in gridlock at 11:30pm at night is not my idea of fun.

  • What am I thinking??

    Agency for camera company #1 calls and says “do you want camera x, y, and z to preview? Only problem is that the loan term is real short.” me: how short? “Oh, 5 days, maybe a week”.
    Despite having 15 cameras on my floor I said yes. I dunno what I’m thinking.

  • Book recommendation

    If you’re read The Da Vinci Code (and who hasn’t?) then I’d recommend also picking up Angels and Demons, which was written prior to TDVC. Both books share a lot of things in common: Robert Langdon, a murder, a beautiful sidekick, and plenty of plot twists and surprises. Angels and Demons was a real page-turner and I may have enjoyed it more than TDVC.

  • Really fresh

    There’s something kind of cool about cooking with vegetables that you’ve grown yourself. Tonight it’s fajitas featuring my very own green bell peppers. I’d like to grow some corn too — I don’t think it’s too late yet since the local farms just replanted (again).
