DJing a wedding today. Bride and groom requested no songs after 1990. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Reliving last night's amazing Bon Iver concert at the National. Justin Vernon deserves kudos for being able to successfully have an 8+ person live band and NOT make it sound too jammy. It's hard to resist those clarinet and trombone solos.

Super sad I missed it, but saw a pretty good video of "Skinny Love" at the National. Was all the WOOOOOOing as annoying in person?

My video shoot today is perilously close to +Ross Catrow and the RVA News office. Perhaps I should sneak over there.

This video sums up Google+ more or less perfectly.

In all the excitement, I forgot to post this to the wonderful world of Google+!

My friend +Kevin Rothermel and I have launched a site that asks the question "What would you do with $5 and a friend?" We are giving away $500 in small five-dollar increments to people who send us weird/funny/awesome ideas on how they'd spend their $5. Just about every day, we pick a new winner and mail them $5 cash to go and accomplish their $5 dream.

Check out the site, watch the video, and submit your idea!

So am I the only person who stays up late at night wondering things like "What did the space slug in Empire Strikes Back eat when there WASN'T a Millennium Falcon flying into its open mouth?"

Thanks to the internet, NOW I KNOW!

My first column for RVA News is up for August. It's a detailed account of Richmond in the aftermath of the Battle of Bull Run as both wounded and prisoners descended upon the city for the first time.
It didn’t take much time for the shockwave from the Battle of Bull Run to reach the Confederate capital. The jubilation over the victory was quickly tempered by the influx of hundreds of wounded soldi...

After upgrading my DJ gear, I decided to wait to organize all my thousands of wedding DJ songs until the first wedding of the year. It's in two weeks and HOLY CRAP I AM SICK OF WEDDING JAMS ALREADY. Ensuring proper labeling, checking bitrates, organizing by genre, listening to songs to confirm they're clean versions. It's like a full-time job! BUT, it's all going to be awesome in the end.

Anybody have any sleeper hit wedding songs to share?

Hearing mixed reviews about whether or not to upgrade to OS X Lion. I'm gonna do my usual "chill for a few days" approach and see what happens.

It's very much like an iOS device - the first thing you'll notice is they reversed scrolling, so that scrolling up actually moves the page down, kind of like if you touched an iPad to do the same thing.

I can't say enough good things about My Guys Moving. Our three man crew of Maurice, Eugene, and Gary were fast, efficient, and handled all of our belongings with care. They had a great attitude and were professional at all times. I've moved with this company twice now and each time I've had a great experience. The guys explained the process, identified any problem issues as soon as they arose, and took extra care with the items I specifically called out.
