It’s Caturday!

This Caturday is brought to you by one-eyed wonder kitty June.

I can’t help it. Today’s picture is one of my favorites of all time. How cute is that morsel!

My buddy Ryan sent us this shot to ooo and ahhh over. Ryan writes (Erika is Ryan’s girlfriend):

breed: female orange tabby (only 20% are female, according to erika)

likes: biting feet, sleeping in the sunshine, chasing bugs, eating doritos

If one-eyed kitties don’t give you a reason to celebrate Caturday, I don’t know what will.

what I’m working on today

Here’s another beach shot that I’ve been working on today. Loving this.

Below is a behind the scenes shot that shows — quite accurately — that I’d been up since 3 a.m.

That other guy in the shot is Ben who assisted and shot with us that day. His girlfriend shot this shot and many more of the behind the scenes.

rock and roll

Last night, we shot a band on a nearby rooftop.

I’m not able to share shots of the band, but here’s one of me and my wee video camera.

We didn’t wrap until 2:30 a.m., and then I had to come home and go through film.

Holy shit, I’m excited about these shots.

Adam Gopnik says the book of Revelations has all the makings of a Hollywood movie, only 85% of the population thinks it’s a docu-drama

The New Yorker — that liberal rag — published a review from Adam Gopnik of Elaine Pagels’ book, “Revelations: Visions, Prophecy, and Politics in the Book of Revelation.

He says it has all the makings of a Hollywood movie. The only problem is that there are too many people that think it’s a prequel documentary about the end times, while the rest of us know it was just some big, hallucinogenic metaphor for the madness that was happening back then.

Well, Pagels says it wasn’t hallucinogenic. But whatever. How can’t it be?

Anyway, the best part of the article is the art coupled with it.

Obamacare will usher in the Barackolypse … he’s conducting the train and we’re all on it!

The world is going to end and Obama is driving us all toward that end!

Can’t you see that?

I mean, holy shit. This isn’t change or hope. That wouldn’t be something Obama would work for.

This is downright evil personified.

The only thing the SCOTUS decision is doing is showing just how fucking stupid those who opposed it are.

Above is a failed attempt at a meme chockfull of errors and below is an amazing show of the highest level of low intelligence.

By the way, the world is not going to end. Obamacare is not going to ruin the economy. You’re going to live your life. I will live mine. And we’ll move forward together.

Once America gets a taste of this healthcare, they’ll forget who signed it into law and if someone tries to take it away from them, they’ll scream bloody murder.


off to a job

For all of you who were praying I’d sell my camera, I found a buyer.

I am going to sell it tonight. I’m thinking about buying another camera just like mine for just a bit more than I sold my other camera for.

Fact is, I love the quality that my camera puts out, and spending another $2000 on the newest model might not make a lot of sense.

Tina and I are off to a job this evening.

Get your PPDs in!


Focus on the Family’s focus motor is broken, probably unfixable

Check out this awesomely thought out section of a statement from Focus on the Family about the correlations between wildfires and abstinence only education in an

article titled “Dig Deeper: Same Wisdom Applied to Sexual Risk Avoidance as Wildfires”:

Certain questions arise: Why aren’t our schools, our states and our nation placing a clear and unquestionable priority on sexual risk avoidance (SRA)? Why are we intentionally spending billions of dollars handing kids matches (condoms), which result in careless (sexual) “fires” and treating victims who have been unnecessarily burned by sex (STDs, pregnancy)? Wouldn’t prevention be cheaper and healthier? “Safe” sex education – or promoting casual sex, while handing out condoms and birth control to kids – is analogous to passing out matches to kids in school, and telling them, “Be sure you play safely with these in the forest and, above all, have fun!”

I hear the original draft of the above was written in crayon.

When idiots want to control the sexuality of kids, they write pathetic drivel like that.

And where are the same activists when it comes to faithful, sexual habits in adults? Focus on the Family doesn’t care about the family. It’s completely unfocused on methods of teaching that work.

I will forever condemn and hate the abstinence-only education that the leadership of my past gave me. And by leadership, I mean myopic assholes.

Sure. Don’t give two kids a hotel room and a batch of condoms and say, “Here’s a porn for you to figure it out.”

But for Christsakes, give kids some education.

The entirety of all cultures and the animal kingdom is based on sex. Sex. An act that is requisite for life to continue. The thing old idiots with nothing better to do call sex “dirty”. Do they not remember that sex is one of the most amazing ways to spend 30 minutes. Or in my case two.

But that’s not the point.

The point is Focus on the Family are jackasses without an ounce of understanding about the world and how to help kids understand sexuality. Avoidance is the Christian way, and it’s about goddamn time they figured that out.

Besides, you would think that if the almighty god of the universe really gave a shit about abstinence only education, he’d do something more direct and powerful than a goddamn forest fire to flex his mighty muscles.

Focus on the Family is the punchline to their own joke.

Photographic upgrade

CNN is getting batted down … hard … for screwing up the news about SCOTUS and Obamacare.

On that note, we’re listening to coverage of the events on the radio. Yes, it’s NPR, but Tina yelled out, “This is something your parents would be for right? I mean, religiously, it just makes sense.”

“NOPE!” I said. “Merely on political principal, mom and dad oppose affordable healthcare for the US population … just like Jesus would want. All hail capitalism and not helping people like the parable of the good Samaritan.”

Then I made a fart noise with my mouth.
