San Francisco

Hey there, here's my blog update for my trip to San Fancisco. It will be mainly photos with a bit of this english stuff in between

Obligatory driving shot.

Us coming over the bridge.

Becky in SF. I'm in the reflection, ooh neat!

Policeman standing in front of huge cathedral...

...who we asked for directions.

The inside of the cathedral has pagan markings, which I thought was much cooler then everyone else.

Urban dancing stuff.

We needed a break, so we went into a gallery and sat for a while (in front of giant fruit).

We needed to pee, so we asked this lady if she knew where a bathroom was. Her response? Her workplace has a bathroom. So we followed her to her workplace....The Church of Scientology. I shit you not.

Becky getting a personality test with the scientology device...thing.

L Ron Hubbard as a statue

.Hey, who is the blonde? She's a receptionist at the Church of Scientology.

This man was a crazy fucking driver. And he cussed constantly.

Pretty Sunset.

Self portrait.

That's right a self portrait of myself. Enjoy.

I just realized...

I have no recent photos of myself. I take so many pictures and yet not one of them is of me. I think it's sort of natural for photographers to lose that kind of thing. We live our lives behind the lens, turning it back on ourselves can be a bit awkward (At least it is for me). I also hate when people take pictures of me. I'm always paranoid they'll do it wrong. Ah well. I'll post a current photo of myself for anyone who cares sometime soon.

Production night.

It's sad how much i love this place. For all my sleepless nights, suffering grades, and limited social life, I wouldn't trade this for anything. Jimmy Eat World and Say Anything playing from Garrett's computer (he has better taste in movies and music than I once figured), pages coming in in waves, there's a phrase that was coined today that describes The Nevada Sagebrush: "Journalism doesn't take a day off"

We posted it outside our office.

Also in unrelated news, I'm a paranoid person. My sagebrush computer comes with a nice little webcam that I hardly ever use. But having a camera constantly pointed at my head kinda freaked me out. So I solved the problem.

This week in photos (Twelve)

So another week, another blog post. Look for another blog entry about the actual production later tonight. For now, here are some of the photos I shot this week.

The first I give you is one of Sen. Sean McDonald who is involved in the attempt to impeach ASUN President Sarah Ragsdale (background).

A musician (Mieka Pauley) who performed in The Joe earlier this week.

Recycled Records is closing!? Don't worry, new location is on Kietzke and Moana.

Sad news this week as the body of Brianna Denison was discovered in a field. These ribbons were tied around town to memorialize her life. This campus has dealt with so much in the past year...

This was used for our cover. Glass is interesting to work with.

This was meant to be used to talk about how the oscars are "going indie".

I shot a women's basketball game the other day. I'd forgotten how fun that is. Also I tried some "different" kind of shots.

Another Obsession.

My blog is quickly becoming a "check this out" kind of thing. So from now on when I have something really awesome to show you it will be in an "Another Obsession" topic

This time we have a really awesome genre of music. For anyone who actually played the old console games this will probably make your day. There is a group of people using old school gaming technology to make music. And it rocks.

And watch this:

BLIP FESTIVAL: REFORMAT THE PLANET trailer from 2 Player Productions on Vimeo.

Go here:
Find the music they have on the site. It's amazing.

This semester's photo project.

So the idea is hazy and muddled as hell, but it's an interesting one. My poblems with math and remembering things (like appointments and such) are potentially part of what is called Dyscalculia. My project? It'll be on that. I know what you're thinking, because I'm thinking the same thing: How the hell is that going to be visual?

My response? I'm not totally sure. But! I have a vehicle for it. Have you ever seen those really long panoramic pictures?


Now if you make a 360 degree panoramic image you can put the ends together and you have a really neat ribbon that you can follow around and around and see all of the angles. Now comes the tricky part. And this took some thinking to actually figure out. There is a way to put a 360 degree image onto a mobius strip and have it be continuous. It has to be possible, right? Well it is. A mobius strip is one sided for all intents and purposes. And the image I want to put on it is one sided. So therefore it's possible. I did some diagrams and such and did some expirements and found out how to do it. So my photos will be 360 degree panoramic shots of things (not sure what yet) put onto a mobius strip. It should look really, really neat.

This week in photos (Eleven)

Late post, I know. But here we are.


There are some os Sen. Cabrera I really like.

This week in photos (Ten)

Here we are. Another week, another update. Week three comes to an end as week four takes off. If we were on an aircraft carrier, this logic would result in multi billion dollar losses for the American taxpayers. (Okay, so that was abrupt and weird. What I mean is that if an aircraft carrier launched fighters as other fighters were landing horrible shit would happen.) But moving on: We have the four people I covered for our diversity package. Then there's a photo from a play. A potential provost. Local hero Courtney. And finally a guy with a beard.

Men's Club.

I feel that a club on campus for men is a necessary thing. I had a long conversation with Juliet on the subject, and I feel that someone needs to make one.

There are some unifying problems that men face that are rarely (if ever) talked about.

Homeless men have far fewer options than homeless women. Something should be done to help men in that kind of position.

Men have stereotypes that are imposed upon them by society. I feel them, I'm not sure if anyone else does.
-On the subject of stereotypes there are a few different kinds. One is that we are all horrible people. Just... no.
-Another is a physical stereotype. I am far too short and lanky to live up to that stereotype and I'm made to feel bad about it in many ways.

My point is that there are issues facing men.

I thought I'd show you... sweet new Sagebrush desk. Check out how awesome my desk is.
