AN APPPLE A NIGHT

That was fun.
We stood up and talked and showed our sites and photos pertaining to photo-blogging tonight at the Apple store. It was an event even more fun than I had anticipated. There was a large crowd. Thanks to jake, rion and jen for organizing and promoting. Nothing like seeing your photo on Gothamist to make you realize how bad you need a haircut.
+ my presentation of photography is posted right here.
I didn't talk much about my site. I instead showed photos, but in retrospect if i were to talk about my site more i could mention it's about (correction) 5 years old. It's first encarnation involved linking to small digital movies and vga spycam photos. Dated, chronological posts with words ('blogging') began in november 2000. Sometimes I will post photos here to accompany some words but lately most of my photos go on my fotolog. This weblog's archives can be found below, and or here.

Many have posted on the event:

GOODBYE GOOD DOG

+ Mom posts a baby photo of Zach. And us.
Can you say "You Will Pay For This" to your mom? I guess not.

goodbye zachie
Zach's long poodle life ended yesterday... You were a goodie, Z. We know you're doing laps for treats in the doggie-afterlife.

OH SMALL PURSE, YOU'RE A BLESSING AND A CURSE

DAILY CANDY (thx for the link jkh)

Jake has posted pictures from the jen bekman gallery opening last night. it was fun. it was so very very nice to see so many familiar faces and i didn't really get to gush over meeting a webhero jason kottke finally for the first time at last, not nearly enough.
(Unrelatedly, Jake, I say it's a manatee.)

the cool boys


I am afraid I can't make it but there's a thing at ICP Friday February 13 where Jason Fulford (et al) and artists of his publishing company J and L books will be signing books at ICP. including Mike Slack whose book OK OK OK i got for my birthday and loved.

The highlight lastnight was seeing Red's head:
red's head
...we had to touch it.

i do seem to update whenever i'm promoting my own events and today is true to that. but it might not always be like this, in fact i have something for you later. but first:

+ jen bekman gallery: the pin-up show
Affordable photos from over 20 artists, including contributions by, yes, me* (+ Jake and ES).

this print is in the gallery but not on the wall but maybe put on the wall in due time or if you aks her about it
*digital photography ~ printed with Epson 2200 inkjet; color prints archival to 100 years.

the pin-up show
opening reception: tuesday february 10th, 6pm-8pm


the pin-up show is a photography sample sale of sorts. all the work will be sold unframed, cash (or credit) and carry. if you've always fancied yourself a burgeoning collector but never had the dough, here's your chance to start: all the photos will be priced under $500, and there will be lots of pieces in the $300 and less range.

. . . . . .
A SPECIAL TREAT FOR YOU:
+ Miranda July's peice The Man On The Stairs can make you want to try to be an honest person. It can make you want to listen to it twice. And again, another time or two, in a few weeks or months. She tells a story so you can taste it. Listen with Real Audio here.
. . . . . .
MUSIC TO BUY EVEN IF YOU'RE IN FRANCE AND IT COSTS A LOT MORE BECAUSE IT'S AN IMPORT
+ The Band of Blacky Ranchette' newest: STILL LOOKIN' GOOD TO ME {if you like anything —or everything— by Howe Gelb...} with contributions by Neko Case et more. It will give you a good fix of all that you like about Howe and Giant Sand, and Neko, and including some Chan Marshall plus a scrappy song by that guy from that one band where the lead singer always sits down and wears a baseball cap and is funny: Lambchop.

Sxx and I just now talking about these bands have realized we oppositely-pronounce every one of them:
Do you say 'Chan' or 'Shawn'?
'How' or 'Howie'?
'Neeko' or 'Necco'?

TEN TWENTY: almost a month later....
We've been doing some rehearsing. One time, we used 'Mikes'. Once a lit candle was used as a slide on a guitar. Graham says he'll be sporting a zoot suit. There will be a sound check, I'm told. Tuppy the Band is playing tonight at Galapagos, after or during or in musical tribute or post-accompaniment or maybe more like melodic contribution to AV CLUB: Comedy with Pictures. Who will be there to guest-accompany them on banjo? I will.
I will.

+ Galapagos; Williamsburg, Bklyn, Monday October 20; 8pm; $7
