A Short Intermission…

It looks like I’ll be away from my desk for a week or two (doing some house-sitting and possibly going on vacation – the details are a bit foggy – as per usual).

I doubt I’ll have regular access to the ‘www’ so my visits might be sporadic, but I’ll try to stop by to say hello if I can. Posting should resume here  in a week or two.  Unless… you  know… it doesn’t.

Take it easy, everyone!

Holy moly… I’ve been gifted a smart-ish phone! Pretty much all I did to the above in Photoshop was to airbrush a few things out… the rest was all done in-phone. Wild. If only I could figure out how to make a phone call.

(I’ll label any photos taken and/or edited via phone in the ‘About this image’ info at the end of my posts… just in case anyone is curious.)

Byronically Speaking…

When The Byronic Man asked me to participate in his famous 20 questions segment I was thrilled! I was honored! I was… obviously confused (my cryptic rambling made no sense – at all). Still, I had a blast – and I think you will, too. Even if I leave you face-palming, the hilariously entertaining Byronic Man makes up for any bruising.  So, if you haven’t yet, please head over and check out The Byronic Man. I know you want to. The cookie never lies.

Festival Director: “Ladies and gentlemen, we are very pleased to welcome you to the world premiere of Part 1 of the newest film from a great favorite of ours here at Loquasto, Mr. Steve Zissou. A brief Q & A will immediately follow the screening. Thank you.”

Shadow detail… HA! Rules. Whatever, dude.

Walter Sobchack: “You mark that frame an eight, and you’re entering a world of pain.”

Smokey: “I’m not…”

Walter Sobchack: “A world of pain.”

Smokey: “Dude, he’s your partner…”

Walter Sobchack: “Has the whole world gone crazy? Am I the only one around here who gives a s**t about the rules?! Mark it zero! ”
