so my parents, nina, and i went to the rock & roll hall of fame in cleveland ohio. my dad had a few vacation days, so he wanted to take a trip. i have been to the hall a few times prior, but they have such a flux of different memorabilia... so it’s never the same place. this time the featured exhibits were the doors, the clash, and warped tour. the clash exhibit had a ton of old outfits the band wore, along with old instruments, tour photos, and flyers.

it has been a great year for flowers. thus it has been a great year for floral photography. i dont know why, but after my experience with the african violets, i have been into art flora a lot more. my mother's green thumb grew some beautiful golden lillys right by their porch. i took a few snaps, then went inside. i returned a few minutes later with a clean memory stick only to discover a monarch butterfly in the lilly i was just shooting.

what a beautiful summer it has been so far. my mom has been able to grow foreign flowers that she could have never dreamed about this year. a prime example were these gorgeous african violets. they bud as little pink balls, then they slowly open up into amazing little purple flowers.
Well I just got my first paycheck, and bought myself a present… an iubi blue (high rez photos here). it’s still not available in the US, but I ordered my from the UK here.
so what is it you ask? It’s an audio/video player/recorder and a logical usb hard drive. As for playback, it will run almost every codec under the sun: MPEG 1, 2, 4 DivX 3.X, DivX 4.X, DivX 5.X, Xvid, WMV9, H.264/MP4, AVI, OGM, WMV 7, 8, MOV, & Real video files! The screen is very bright a clear, and you can see it from almost any angle.

one of the other members of the 806 crue, drone, works with me at egobrain tattoo. his style is amazing, i really love the nu skool tweaked 3D perspectives he uses. but in the tattoo scene he is well known for his skills in biomechanical work...

so i got a new tattoo. this one fuxx0ring hurt!!1!#@!~ i wanted to get a tattoo that every time i saw it, it would make me laugh. i think i totally succeeded. i ended up getting a letter from a font i made. the aqua teen hunger font. it’s a zombified chainsaw wielding master shake. ridiculous to say the least. it’s on my ribcage (which is a place that’s very painful to begin with) but i ended up getting it tattooed by BOTH the varlas brothers simultaneously! eric did the outline and was finishing the fill work. he was discussing shading techniques w/ his older bro tony and the next thing i know tony shoves eric out the way and starts working on me too. props to the whole egobrain crew!
