Taking some time off to enjoy classics...

Namely a double feature of Deadpool and Star Wars at the nearest drive in theater.

So got a new camera, a Panasonic G7 recently, and while I am still planning on picking up a good 35mm prime for it to replace the kit lens, on a whim I ordered an adapter for some vintage lenses my father gave me years ago, that are probably from the 60s. Started playing around with them, and of course what better way to test than by honoring that internet tradition... cat pics!

So there's this guy. He's awesome. His wife and daughters are awesome. He does tattoos that are awesome. This year, he was diagnosed with cancer, which is not awesome. 

Fighting cancer is expensive. 

Some amazing artists have donated some of their artwork to be sold at a silent auction. All proceeds will go to Mike Tschirn, aka awesome tattoo guy, and his family. We want you to come buy this art. Buy lots of this art. Help us help them make this fight a little less taxing.

If you can't come buy art, but would still like to help, thank you. You're a wonderful person. There is an indiegogo campaign to help the Tschirn family here: https://life.indiegogo.com/fundraisers/tschirn-family-support-fund

Invite your friends. Invite your mom. Invite your mom's friends. Come. Buy all the art, and help an awesome guy kick cancer's ass.

The above was posted by someone I went to high school with.

Mike Tschirn was someone that graduated in my class in high school, and I consider his older brother especially a good friend.  I know there are a lot of artists and good people in general that follow me here, and many of you are probably very familiar with how difficult health care can be for an artist, so I am posting this so that hopefully as a community we can come together and support each other.

Even if you aren't an artist, the list of artists that donated artwork to help support Mike in an auction on Friday is tremendous, so if you are near Fredricksburg, VA. USA especially please come out to support him and get some cool artwork from a variety of local artists.  Sadly for those of you not near Fredricksburg, the indiegogo is the only option, but still a very valuable one.

At the very least feel free to reshare to help him out!  Thanks!

Yea for my fun... "Huh?" moment for today.  I just got this in my email....

This is just all sorts of win... first I was sent an email to notify me that I may not be able to check my email due to an outage (No phone call etc. was made).  Then I was directed to visit a website for more information on my internet outage...

On the plus side for them, my internet worked fine as far as I can tell.

So strangely I found reason to smile in the obituary of someone I went to their funeral today....

http://www.richmond.com/obituaries/article_c21b60bc-1153-5abd-b3c8-268cfd32eb57.html

Jim Noland, Mary Anne's husband, is a friend and was my pastor at the church I attended in college. My condolences go out to both him and his family.

That being said, while the intent of this wasn't a political statement, but instead to reflect her sense of humor, I do have to smile a bit at the statement, sadly not to far off my own reflections on our current election cycle.
NOLAND, Mary Anne Alfriend. Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68. Born in Danville, Va., Mary Anne was a graduate of Douglas Freeman High School (1966) and the University of Virginia School of Nursing (1970). A faithful child of God, Mary Anne devoted her life to sharing the love she ...

So I have heard a LOT of things in theater... but this was a new one on me.  In the middle of a dress rehearsal a hold is called by an actor on stage.  For those that aren't aware we only call hold in that time if we have to, typically involving safety reasons.  The reason?

"HOLD!.... My hair is stuck on a unicorn."

Ahh Rocky Horror Picture Show, the gift that keeps on giving...

Yes, and one I hadn't seen before.  A student of mine caused it, funnily enough on the day we were switching to MB3 from 2.5(This is obviously 2.5).  But it says something when they break the software in ways I hadn't seen before:)
