No, no.

I didn’t get to buy comics and my shit. Oh well. RL got in the way again. In this case, hella rain and stuff like my “sub boss” getting on me. All I got to keep me from going mad is my camera and my friends. Both are getting kinda scarce though.

Please parents. Do not force me to go with you.
Sadly, community members. It did not push thru. REAL SHIT TO DO.

Edit: Epicc FAAAAIL, I put it on private.


They will come. Sorry for the delay and have patience. I got real shit to do.

By the way, I may have found a Marvel series to actually follow and collect FOR ONCE.

Something new my mom asked at “dinner”.

“What have you learned today?”

I didn’t really get into it at first but there IS a point. I guess I never really thought about what I learned everyday since I thought it was a given. People learn something EVERYDAY.

So what did YOU learn today?

I’m resigning today. I’ve had enough of MY bullshit.

I don’t love the job. I’m killing my bosses and I’ve had enough of the crap I put out. So now, I will be job hunting. Any job is fine, as long as it’s honest work.

My mom slipped and fell on her back this morning. I’m worried.
To compound matters, I slipped and fell on my hip a few hour later. It was stupid, don’t ask.

I’m out.

Okay, you have to cover an event. First step, in my opinion, a really important step would be to case the venue.

It’s not a joking matter. In war, the one who knows the lay of the land is at a distinct advantage. No different here.

First thing I do is check out how the place is set up. I need to know where there’s going to be heavy traffic of human bodies so I can either seek out or avoid those places. Bottom line, there’s going to be a line to the comfort room but the action’s not there.

Next thing I look at is lighting. I don’t expect everyone to be able to memorize the locations where the disco lights intersect at a drop of a hat but seeing what the lighting can do is a very big thing. Great photos can be ruined ‘coz of bad lighting and photos you expected to be mediocre may just surprise you because the lighting was amazing.

In part two I’m gonna cover the idiosyncratic stuff I do but don’t expect everyone to try at once.

Do you want to have your photo taken during an event? Do you want to know where to point your lens if you want to get the photos of where it’s going to be HOTTEST? Do you want to be at or near the center of attention? Look for the room’s “hotspot”

Okay, it’s not really called a hotspot., I just happen to call it that.

So, what IS the hotspot? It’s the first area of the room that your eyes go to when you enter. Amazingly, this area is where almost everyone will gravitate to. So where does that leave you?

Question: What is it that you want? Do you want to be with the throng? Do you want to take photos of the dancing masses?

Question: Can you get there? Do you belong in there? Can you handle it?

I’m loving “Knock you down” by Keri Hilson feat. Kanye West and Ne-Yo.

Especially the part by Ne-Yo. I think it fits pretty well. Slight backstory, an important choice for me when it comes to a partner would be if she gets along with or even likes my friends BUT what seals the deal is when I can tell my friends that I’ll be with her this time instead of vegging out over at the shak or staying up until 5AM playing ROOOOCK BAAAAAND.

Never thought I’d hear myself say.
Y’all go ahead, I think I’m gonna kick it with my girl today.

It fits. Hehe

Okay, ate at Amici for the first time.

First reaction: If you like to eat the fried Mozzarella in Chili’s without sauce DO NOT order the fried Mozzarella in Amici. BLAND

Second reaction: Damn their pizzas are oily. Urrgh, and we had the Margherita which I assumed(incorrectly) to be the least oily.

We’ll probably go back another time but I know what I WON’T be ordering.

Since I’m saving up to get a lappie I thought it’s be best to get all the installers that I normally get out of the way and installed.

Antivirus software
RAW format converter

All I need is the laptop. Priceless, ain’t it?
