I redesigned the Pagelime.com logo, check out how I went about it.
Alright, so today has been a good day (and I didn’t even seen 3 red cars in a row).
It’s a gorgeous day weatherwise, I busted out some sweet designs, made a pretty decent lunch. The place I work is going to pick up some really sick clients, so that means I’ll be working on some really awesome projects AND I just found out two of my images were chosen to show in Pingyao, China for the 2009 International Photography Festival. Which is apparently the “oldest and largest photography exhibition in China,” according to this tourism site. (Here are some cool pictures from last years show on a blog I found via google.)
So, if you happen to be around Pingyao between September 19th—26th, take some pictures for me, I’d love to see the show and my work there!
Oh, and here are the two images that were chosen (out of 450, of 100 others):
My buddy Beebs is making a documentary about vinyl, check that shit.
Here it is, the shortened version of my upcoming full-length documentary on vinyl record culture.
I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.
SUMMARY: Why is it that in this new digital age, where hours, days, even months worth of music can be transported in a hardrive the size of a cellphone , that sales of something as analog as vinyl records are increasing?
Why are people buyig vinyl records again? What is their allure? Why do people still buy them? I set out to interview a wide range of people in both the DC area and my hometown of Johnstown PA to find the answer. From Record Store Owners, DJs, and Bands to Record Labels, Audio Technicians, Vinyl Enthusiasts, Collectors, and especially new vinyl buyers, I interviewed them to get their opinion on the subject.

Mmmmmm, new hardware… Alright so I just got a brand new Seagate FreeAgent Go from Newegg.com on sale for 105.99 with free shipping! (Thanks Brock for helping fix the credit card issues, and getting it to me overnight!) I gotta say, off the bat, it’s pretty slick. First of all, (the top at least) its made of metal, unlike the Western Digital Passports which are all plastic and bend in when touched. The activity/on lighting in the back of the drive is a nice touch (all those dots on the bottom of the drive glow and “breath” (like a sleeping macbook), not overwhelmingly bright, with white LED). It’s SILENT, SMALL, very thin and stylish looking. Let’s see how it performs, I just formatted the 500GB to 25GB of FAT32 for transporting files from a PC and 475GB for my Aperture (110GB) and iTunes Library (119GB), along with some other stuff.
So I guess one of my photos was chosen for DCist Exposed 2009 Show at Flashpoint. Cool. Join me February 20th to March 7th- the other winners look great too. I’m honored.
