It’s just a rumor that’s been spreading ’round town

Monday, January 23rd, 2006

I played it on KRNU the other day, and I haven’t really stopped thinking about it. “Shipbuilding” by Elvis Costello is just one of the greatest songs of all time. I love countdowns, and many “modern rock” stations have best-of-all-time countdowns around the new year, and it always makes me think, “Could KRNU ever do […]

The Rock Show: The Aftermath

Saturday, January 21st, 2006

Man, that was amazing.My shoulder hurts from videotaping two hours of rock (I’m not strong enough to hold a camera in that upright position without some strain).

My tops of 2005

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

continued from this post I woke up early Saturday morning, gathered my gear and a McDonald’s breakfast, and headed south. Mapquest said it was a 2 hour drive, and it ended up being almost exactly that. For about the first hour and fifty minutes, my friend who’d said to expect nothing out of the ordinary […]

Assorted images of Katrina devastation

Sunday, January 8th, 2006

I shot these photos during my trip to Mississippi in mid-December. The back yard from a house in a pretty affected neighborhood. This used to be a scenic – and dry – area. Ironic “Home Sweet Home” pillow, lying in the front yard of a destroyed home. A couch caught in a tree. A storefront […]
