Sasquatch 2013


For the second year in a row, I had the privilege of attending the Sasquatch music festival, out at the Gorge Ampitheatre in central Washington. Just like last year, the views were spectacular, the music was mind-blowing, and the atmosphere was electric.

This year, I was able to bring my Canon 5D Mark III with 70-200mm lens, along with my Fuji x100, to shoot some footage. The below video is what resulted.

It was also a joy to photograph the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performance on opening night. Macklemore (age 29) is an incredibly gifted performer, and gave us a show we would not soon forget. Click through to see the full set of photos.

SIFF 2013 and My Very First Radio Spot (as a Film Critic)

This year's Seattle International Film Festival is upon us, and I'm once again overwhelmed by the sheer volume of filmic goodness to be had. This year's festival will sport over 440 films from over 80 countries.

I was pleased to be able to share my most anticipated movies with local radio personality Bill Radke. Here's the segment we did together on 94.9 KUOW. Check it out, and if you see me at the festival, do say hi.

The Pig Joke


The pig joke, as told by actor Stephen Tobolowsky. Side note: I hate the Fuji X100's video auto-focus. It drives me up the wall.


An unexpectedly moving article by Paul Miller, about what it was like to spend an entire year off the internet:

I'd read enough blog posts and magazine articles and books about how the internet makes us lonely, or stupid, or lonely and stupid, that I'd begun to believe them. I wanted to figure out what the internet was "doing to me," so I could fight back. But the internet isn't an individual pursuit, it's something we do with each other. The internet is where people are.
