Just had a photo session with Colette today, and damn the new lighting getup really is fantastic. :D Major thanks to Colette for letting me practice being a picturographer on her!
Here are a few of the highlights from the session..

|Cool New Pictures, or... The Tale of the New Lighting Rig
So Lauren and I have just begun going through a DVD
put together by Don Giannati
, and it's pretty awesome so far.
I went out and bought the gear he recommends for a cheap-ass lighting rig for < $100, and here are just a couple of my favorite pictures resulting from our first night of goofing off with it (I am personally quite impressed, I must say):

I find myself thoroughly amused by the way companies (and hiring managers) sugar-coat the miserable existence that they're trying to lure you into. I was reminded of this earlier this evening while perusing Craigslist for any sign of hope that I might find a contingency plan in case Google decides not to hire me after all. The following is a snippet of the job listing, and my interpretation of it:
· Experience facilitating a long term IT vision taking into consideration an organization’s business goals; coordinating and leading the implementation of the vision with multi-department database applications.
"Experience facilitating a long term IT vision" = you know that it will take 4 years to get the shit you need to do your job
"taking into consideration an organization’s business goals;" = we're fucking cheapskates
"coordinating and leading the implementation of the vision with multi-department database applications." = we use Oracle Financials and it's the biggest piece of shit ever. Good luck getting any of your PO's approved.

|Playing a show on Monday night!
Hey there, wild world of LJ that I have been too busy to check up on in months. =( I won't pretend that I didn't come here for blatant self-promotional reasons. And it's not that I don't miss you guys, I've just been working like a dog (12+ hour days everyday), and I've really had no life lately.
So anyway, if you're on my friends list and are reading this right now, that means I would love it if you came out to see my play a laptop/KorgArmy hybrid set of NuSkool Breaks next Monday night! Here's the scoop:
at the Savoy on 3546 Flora Vista Ave in Santa Clara CA
Music starts at 9pm
As of now, I am scheduled to be playing from 11pm-12am. Last month (it is the 4th Monday of every month) we had a blast. Come join us! =)
www.secretpsychedelica.com for the details. Put on by the awesome Michael Liu (the man!). Current Mood: anxious

|I was played on Live105 and didn't even know it.
Okay, so it was just a mashup I made that was played. But still! Many moons after I submitted a mashup of Madonna's "Music" with Gorillaz "Dare", they finally played it. How did I find out? A Google web query for "kikipopo" brought up the info on a Subsonic playlist that doesn't exist anymore. So thank you Google for being the only proof that they played the track.

|I fucking hate Fallout Boy.
What a pathetic fucking excuse for music. Lyrics do not GET more empty, meaningless, "pop" catch-phrasey, and downright fucking stupid. Sure, I love artists like Beck who have been known to have nonsense lyrics, but at least Beck does it in a fun way. What the fuck is "Am I more than you bargained for, I've been dying to tell you anything you want to hear, cause that's just who I am this week"? It's fucking BULLSHIT. It's INSINCERE music, produced for the sole purpose of getting rich. While I'm all for getting rich, please do it with decent fucking music and stop polluting the airwaves.
For fuck's sake.
Live105 refuses to stop playing them every 20 fucking minutes. Then I noticed that their playlist litterally consists of 36 songs. http://www.live105.com/music/playlist/default.htm
if you don't believe me. It saddens me greatly, because I like a good chunk of the shit they play, but when every other FUCKING SONG IS "SUGAR WE'RE GOING DOWN" I WANT TO FUCKING KILL. It really makes me want to never listen to the station again, at least college radio and KPFA still play decent music, and understand that there is more than 36 songs in the known universe that are worth playing. This is why radio stations should never have been allowed to consolidate, EVER. Fuck Infinity Broadcasting for making Live105 play the same shit every hour, and I won't even BEGIN to get into why CLEAR CHANNEL are the biggest PIECES OF SHIT ON THE FUCKING PLANET AND NEED TO DIE A VERY SLOW AND INTENSELY PAINFUL DEATH.
Go college radio, go KPFA, and go freeform media.
And sorry for cursing your name, Fallout Boy, but you embody everything I hate about the media in this country. Current Mood: aggravated

|Only other geeks will think this is cool.
I was just walking around at work and a guy who looked really familiar commented to me and the others I was with that we should try to pop some wheelies on our scooters. He was in a suit. I couldn't place who he was til I got back to my desk. Ended up being Vint Cerf. Pretty nifty.
