What a day.Just had quite possibly the longest day of shooting in my life. Luckily, I had a pretty blond (or maybe it's blue streaks now) girl texting me all night to keep me happy. There may have been cupcakes involved.
It all started off by getting pulled over by the police at 6AM just because I "looked suspicious". I'll have a nice story to tell, but I'll have to wait until tomorrow to type it all out.
Right now, I need sleep.
I'm doing another shoot tomorrow and a bunch more this week, so expect more mayhem to ensue.
Denial, Deflection & In-genuine 'reasons' forAfter reading hundreds of comments and posts by those who post and or advocate porn on dA, I have come to some conclusions.
1) Many of these people have no clue what the definition of pornography is. They cannot point to it in the dictionary, legal documents or, more importantly, they cannot tell you what the official dA definitions are as listed in the TOS. This is important, because it is that definition that the Admin staff uses.
2) They are in DENIAL (Don't Even Know It's A Lie) about the material in question. They're under the illusion that they are special snowflakes. That they are breaking new ground by posting a picture of (a) an erect penis, (b) a gaping vagina, (c) something stuck into a vagina, (d) a sex act like fellatio.
3) They are hypocrites. They accuse people of being bullies, but they use bully tactics. They acuse people of being small minded, stupid, closed minded, fundamentally christian or uber-religious, immature, lacking comprehensive skills, and my favorite- bei
Little Iron Maiden Story For Ya...What a weekend! Shot Our Lady Peace and Blue Rodeo in Ottawa on Friday night. Had to get up at 6am on Saturday for the almost 5 hour train to ride to Toronto. All the while hung over as hell, good thing I slept most of the way on the train. Picked up my car, had a quick shower at home and drove for 3 hours to get to Sarnia for the Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden show.
Got to the venue and was ushered backstage where I met some friends from the local radio station (some of my shots will end up on their website) and the other photographers. As usual a representative from the promoter comes out and tells us how the evening will progress, what times that bands go on, when we have to meet to be ushered into the photo pit, etc. And she mentions that before Iron Maiden's set that we actually have to meet to be briefed by the tour manager. Now that's a first, it's never happened before. But
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
Keep in Touch!
