153: snowbound: fl + kennedy space center________2 January, 2014

first time in awhile i’ve seen it get down in the neighborhood of -3F in these here mid-atlantic states! and to think i was just down in sunny FL, land of orange halves and sea shells. welp, guess i gotta approve of any state what’s got somethin’ called a panhandle.

so what else? lots new to share. let’s start with some photos:

some are from the kennedy space center, which despite resembling nothing so much a space disney, cannot disguise its innate coolness. you can’t completely un-cool (warm up?) a saturn V rocket or the sixth biggest building in the world (which kind of resembles a nasa-branded borg cube) or an 8.5 million-pound mobile launch platform which drives around rockets at 1mph on giant tractor-crawler treads. worth checking out. jes sayin.

also, happy new year! probably the best thing i’ve done with a new year’s eve in quite awhile. thanks, pratt!

152: verobound | landscape photo series________14 December, 2013

snow day! if you look outside your window (provided your window is located in new york city), you will see one of my favorite weather patterns in action. otherwise, it’s just deadlines, deadlines, as far as the eye can see. good news pertaining to that is that there are things and those things will (probably) be built! more to come on that as it enters reality. (…construction photos?)

otherwise, gearing up for a vero trip, newly smartphonified (! / long time coming), and looking forward to eggnog and a possible field trip to montréal. must. do. christmas shopping. and find some time to write. geeeeeez.

here’s an image from the last vero trip, part of my landscapes series:

149: big heights, little mines: the golan________10 November, 2013

images from the golan heights. it’s a surreal feeling to knock around a part of a country where there are signs (really quite small signs) hung at the sides of the roads through vast stretches of the land that say something demure like: “keep clear – mines, maybe”. something not very scary-sounding, anyway.

sure is pretty, though.

143: brittany haas / jordan tice / paul kowert________27 September, 2013

you know what i had forgotten that i really like? house concerts. and no, i don’t mean edm. i mean, concerts where you go to someone’s house, have a couple beers, meets some cool people,  and watch some amazingly talented musicians blow everyone’s mind. that’s basically what happened at the house of love concert last saturday night. (sidenote: a big congrats to house of love on its triumphant post-sandy return.)

turns out brooklyn has a really welcoming, really amazing, nascent bluegrass scene if you turn over the right rocks (or have the good fortune to know the right person).  in attendance were emily mure (opener) alongside brittany haas (fiddle) / paul kowert (bass) / jordan tice (guitar). the trio played a number of songs, mostly instrumental, mostly technically spectacular, and mostly traditionally melodic. though i don’t think there’s another show of theirs coming up just now, i can’t recommend them enough — especially in a setting like that.

video to follow when i get less lazy.
