I usually have a pretty strict “keep it light” policy for Facebook posts, but this weekend was a really hard one with my mother. So, in a haze of sleep deprived delirium, I penned the following in the first hours of Monday morning just after midnight. It’s 1:30 in the AM and I’m wide awake, […]
See on @revwon’s Instagram last night, traced back to @PastorYPJ’s tweet from March 2012 (the earliest instance I could find) and Futura-fied on green because Grace is always green to me.
I discovered Aaron Draplin last week and he’s my new favorite design hero. I love the idea of Free Fridays and giving 4-5 hours a week back to the community.
‘Was up till 2:00am uploading videos. ‘Figured I might as well get in a little extra in on something that had been cooking around in my brain for a day or so.
I tried to do this in After Effects. After an hour or so of playing with sliders, I just decided to shake a blanket in the sunlight. Presto!
When I was a kid, my mom had these curtains that had a Japanese painting of pine trees on them in this sort of dark sepia color. No, it wasn’t brown.
Even tho I don’t speak a lick of Japanese (well, past counting to 10) I’ve been watching this interview on and off this week. I think it’s pretty unique. I’ve checked out a couple of other interviews on this channel and this is my favorite by far for several reasons. From a production standpoint, I […]
I have such a wide array of friends with such varying backgrounds and I love each and every single one of them more than my need to prove I’m right.
Mom has been with us for a while now. Her situation has spurred a lot of conflicted wrestling with my view of the world. Most days, I feel like there’s more questions than answers.
My sister-in-law told me that she and her friends used to hang out at the lake that is now Smith Creek Park and was at that time called Lake 420. I laughed and asked her what she was doing back there. I didn’t make the connection to the corresponding Exit 420 from I-40. I felt […]
This is how I get my news every morning. Where my forefathers read the newspaper, I have a laptop and a slew of RSS feeds on subjects that I like. Ah, technology.
Shot with a GoPro while driving home after dropping my mother-in-law off at her house. The secret to getting your GoPro night footage ( at least with the Hero3 ) is to gamma correct the living daylights out of it. That, at least, gets rid of most of the funky noise.

The really great thing about being in your 40’s is that, most nights, you’re not afraid of the monsters under the bed. -Posted on Twitter
I remember some of these on the daycare playground when I was a kid. It was the first tree that really registered with me aside from the pines that were everywhere.
On this day where we remember the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a short meditation: We all influence the world around us.
Today was a good day. I’d rather help someone who can’t pay a lot and is really happy rather than give a large amount of effort and be paid begrudgingly.
We did not become people who have fish as pets voluntarily. One of my wife’s coworkers ( JEREMY ) gave our son a goldfish. 4 goldfish later, we tried a betta. 3 betta’s later, we found one that would live for more than a week, but had to move it to it’s own tank because […]
This was before the guy wiped down a 3 foot radius of the table with a sanitizing wipe before setting up his dual monitor mobile workspace. It was also before of the guy behind me started making phone calls soliciting donations for his political group. I don’t want to complain, but what the what? Oh, […]
When I was a kid, my mom had these curtains that had pine trees twisting across them in a brownish, knotted pattern. When I did the color on this clip, it instantly reminded me of those living room curtains and time spent looking out the window. I spent a lot of time driving in the […]
Our church has begun streaming our services which means, once again, I’ve been hanging out upstairs before the service with video equipment. It’s a bit different than what I’m accustomed to. We only stream the message and not the music. There’s no lower 3rd lyrics. There’s no haze or moving lights. It’s just one person […]
When I worked the morning show, I’d swear that I could see patterns in the individual frames of a static filled feed; transmissions from somewhere in glyphs that I could not quite make out.
There’s this guy up in the Triangle ( Durham or Chapel Hill, I forget where) that makes amazing special effects in his garage with plates of glass and various fluids. I’ve also seen other people do something similar with large tanks. This I did in a one liter bottle with some coffee and artifical sweetener. […]
A little edited sequence. Oddly enough, I could not get him to be in one place for more than 30 seconds. I love editing video and I miss it. This has one or two edits that I’d probably have tweaked a bit if I had more time to spend on it, but I’m trying to […]
I think I spend a lot of time waiting. Yesterday I was waiting to pick up some takeout and I forgot my phone. I had to sit there and entertain myself without the aid of the Interenet for a full ten minutes. The horror.
I saw someone driving down the road today with a christmas tree loosely tied to the roof of their conversion van. I say “loosely” because it fell off. I took it to the christmas tree recycling area for them because I didn’t want anyone’s New Year to be ruined as they were killed by a […]
I’m convinced that, when the apocalypse comes, it’ll leave behind Hiroshima/Pompeii style shadows on the walls of thousands of us as we raise our mobile devices to capture the last moments of mankind.
In an attempt to do something different that doesn’t involve me sitting up late at 11:00 PM trying to find something to draw, I’m introducing this: Project 365 21:9 Ta-daaaaa! 1 minute of 21:9 video posted daily – this in an attempt to train myself to see things in a more cinematic aspect ratio and […]
