Holiday Extravaganza Post…

Since I haven’t posted in a while, (due to unpaid internet bills) and since I am feeling a little generous on this x-mas eve, here’s a motley of quality content to keep you tied over until the new year, or whenever I get around to posting again.

Our friend Hackleys from across the pond have some great advice for heading into 2009. Definitely am going to find myself refering back to this list quite often.

I’ve been using Field Notes for quite some time. I’m never caught without one, and love how they’re small and soft enough to keep in your back pocket, yet durable enough to withstand a beating. Douglas Wilson gives one to each of his students to fill with whatever they want. Here are the results.

JamBase names My Morning Jacket band of the year in 2008.

With a new year approaching, you’ll probably find yourself needing a new calender, or two. UpperCase has some excellent options for you.

I love seeing the creative process in action. Illustrator John Burton documents his processes on his blog, The Unreachable Itch.

Here’s some tilt-shift photography on Things I Like.

And finally for today, photographer Todd Hido as some stunning work.

Back in the swing of things.

The trip back home was great. Nothing like some quality time filled with good friends, family, food, and lots of excellent performances by the likes of A.A. Bondy, Drive-By Truckers, Loretta Lynn, and the always incredible Avett Brothers. However, it’s always nice to get back into the old routine.

Brooklyn’s Tommy Cinquegrano has some pretty killer prints. Check them out at his Printshop Store.

Brooks Reynolds produces some quality images. Check out his ethereal photographic series, We Are Sleeping Giants.

And in music news, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys, one of the most gritty and raw blues bands going today, is creating a solo album and hitting the road all by his lonesome. For complete details and tour dates visit our friends over at JamBase.

Studies in Composition, Part 1.




Recently, I acquired a new Canon 30d DSLR camera. I have always been somewhat of a purists and dark room rat, so the decision to go digital was not an easy one. However, I am quickly starting to the benefits of shooting digital, as it definitely enables me to learn and experiment more with exposures and lighting without going through roles of film. With that being said, I am sure soon enough I’ll be lured back into the murky confines of the dark room. There’s nothing quite like perfecting a print by hand, and watching an image emerge at your fingertips. Plus, sometimes I just get a hankering for smelly chemicals. Above are some shots of Mel Dogg and I romping around Park City.

Speaking of photography, Heidi Johansen has some wonderful images at her site. I first discovered Heidi’s work on the cover of Throw Me the Statue’s latest album, Moonbeams.

While at Indiana University, Jordan Tate taught me most everything I know about picture takin’. Although his class made me give up photography for a bit, and at times he could be quite an asshole, I definitely finished the semester with a better appreciation and understanding for photography.

Mustang Typography


This weekend an estimated 400 Mustangs lined up Park City’s Main Street for the Mustang Club of America Grand National car show. Here is a sampling of the classic steel-horse marvels that were on display. Detroit sure doesn’t make them like they used to, you could almost taste the cherry red on these beauts.
