We spent most of the day Sunday at the State Fair of Texas. It was probably one of the best Sundays I’ve had in a while.

Enjoy!

Shooting At Local Walmart …

17 Oct

Tuesday’s are slowly becoming one of my favorite days of the week. Last Tuesday Johnny, Layla, Ruiz and I decided we needed some pizza and a BB Gun. God Damnit I love Walmart.

(I brought 2 cameras with me on our adventure. My Konica and my Minolta advanitx. I labeled the photos respectively.)

Enjoy!


Pizza was a priority.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

14 Oct

The Declaration of Human Rights is a declaration that was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10th, 1948. The Guinness Book of Records describes the UDHR as the “Most Translated Document” in the world. The UDHR represents the first global expression of rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled.

Originally written by Eleanor Roosevelt 60 years ago, it’s astonishing that less than five percent of the world even knows that the document exists. The message rings particularly true now.

The Collectors

I love vinyl. I love this commercial (if that’s what you want to call it.)

Enjoy!

Kids Do the Darndest Things (On Youtube.)

9 Oct

Without sounding like a big ol’ creepy creeper, my favorite viral videos on the YouTube now a days usually involve children. “Charlie Bit Me,” (which now has over 54 million views!) “Creepy Laughing Baby,” “Kassie Kicks Monsters Ass,” “Bloooooooood!” and my new favorite “Little Girl Remix,” are effing hilarious to me. I would be so stoked if my parents had footage of me saying random shit, that only children can think of. Unfortunately the only footage of my brothers and I as children requires a Beta Max Player to view.

These darling young entertainers aren’t the only minors getting the spotlight. If you’re caught off guard, funny, or even embarrassing enough then your YouTube views are going to go through the roof. I’m almost kind of glad web-cams didn’t exist when i was going through middle school. I’d hate for someone to have footage (video below,) of me doing something as embarrassing as singing to top 50’s in my room, (which I did.)

Just wait for the water sprinkler inspired move. It’s my favorite.

Enjoy!

All That Glitters Isn’t Gold

8 Oct

ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD Is a new art print exhibition by your friend and mine Brian Gibb. Brian co founded Art Prostitute back in 2003 and ever since then he’s been running the their gallery and still finding time to create and publish lots of great work.

ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN’T GOLD is such a great concept that explores the fine line between “memory and nostalgia, culture and dichotomous relationships observed by the artist.” I’m really excited about this exhibition.

The Artist Reception is next Thursday, October 16th, 2008 (8-10pm) inside the Magnolia Theatre in the West Village. The Exhibition will be running through November. Do yourself a favor and make it a point to swing by.

“Skate Or Die” A Photographic Novel By Luke Lanter

4 Oct

At this year’s 2nd Annual DFWFO Skate Or Die Party We got to see a sneak peek of Luke Lanter’s Skate Or Die Coffee Table Book. He Used several different point and shoot camera’s to capture hours of Drinking, Kick Flipping, Partying and at one point 2 grown men wrestling in their underwear. Luke did an amazing job in capturing, editing and composing the layout of this book. Good ol’ Jason Faries helped with some editing and designing the cover. There’s 3 versions available: Paperback, hardback w/printed dust jacket and a very sharp looking hardback w/glossy image wrapped cover. I’m really proud to be the owner of this book. Luke did a fantastic job making this happen and we did a fantastic job of giving him a reason to want to make the book.

To own your very own copy go here today!

Also, you can see what Luke Lanter is up to here! He’s posting a new photograph each day. Now i have one more reason to get out of bed each morning.
