The mightiest astrophysicist in all the universe!

Frankly, I have no idea what these photos are from. They’re nothing short of hilarious. In the photos, you’ll find astrophysicist Ethan Siegel. He’s the guy with the hair, the chest and the super suit.

If you’re not following Siegel’s blog, consider yourself missing out.

Once I find out what and where these photos are from, I’ll get back. There seems to be an absence of explanation on facebook.

Thundering Thursday Inspiration: Imma pin Doug Sonders on my vision board

My partner Bill Whitmire went to Photoshop World over the weekend, and he came back all pumped up like an evangelical after a missions trip.

Bill attended one seminar with Doug Sonders, a 30-year-old who does some amazing work with amazing people. Man, I’m jealous.

Sonders has the attitude that he wants to share his secrets, because frankly, they aren’t all that secret. They are inspirational. Even if you’re not in the photography field, if you want something, set goals and put yourself in the trajectory you want to go in. And it will happen.

I loved this blog entry where Sonders writes:

When I am not shooting, I am editing, or planning out scheduled marketing, or searching for new clients, or shooting personal portfolio projects. Make lists of goals. Without goals, you dont know where you are heading and why or what you should do. Make short term goals and long term goals. Make to-do lists that include completing current projects on time (obviously) and if/when youre done, planning out ways to expand your portfolio and ways to reach out to new clientele.

and later …

Make goals (short and long), keep to do lists, when you aren’t shooting a job you should be either shooting for your portfolio and developing a specific niche for yourself and marketing yourself to specific clientele that reflects your niche rather than the shotgun marketing approach.

I printed the entry and posted it on my vision board. This validates where I think I’m going and where I want to go.

Go check out Sonders’ portfolio here. And make goals and write yours down. Whatever it is. It’s part of the process that takes what prayer should be, and makes it a reality.

Let’s quote the National Organization for Marriage. I love this game!

“Hollywood with its cultural biases is far bigger than we can hope to be. We recognize this. But we also recognize the opportunity – the disproportionate potential impact of proactively seeking to gather and connect a community of artists, athletes, writers, beauty queens and other glamorous non-cognitive elites across national boundaries.”

Found on the page marked 15 of this document (bottom of page) called “National Strategy for Winning the Marriage Battle“. Read a little higher up as it discusses how to influence minds and the psychology behind it.

Imagine that. Non-elitists using the sciences of psychology to perpetuate their message.

NOM openly wants the stupid people to deliver their message, because they’re too dumb to understand it in full context.

Hey, gay marriage haters … your leadership is hoping your non-cognitive enough to repeat this shit. So go repeat it!
