Quack’s Cookie Series: St Patty’s Day

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

When you are freelancer, you often go most of the day without direct human interaction & small talk. I didn’t know St. Patty’s day had already come and gone. I completely missed it :-(

But! I did catch a glimpse of St. Patty’s day cookies at Quack’s. I am planning on covering their topical cookie creations from this point on. Without further ado, part one of the the Quack’s Cookie Series!!!

It would be good for my photography career to mention that these were taken with my phone. Hence the crappy color interpretation.

SXSW – Superdrag!

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

I didn’t really read up on my SXSW appearances prior to the week because I’ve been feeling very jaded about live music for so long. I stumbled upon a listing that showed three Superdrag shows yesterday. They are potentially my favorite band of all time. I didn’t even know they were back in full force, let alone playing three FREE shows, AND with a new album. I have pics of the performances to come. I talked to lead singer, John Davis, once again and he remembered (at least he said he did). I opened a show for him in West Virginia in 2005. Rad times, it was.

To top it off! I went to listen to¬† some new tracks on iTunes before I bought the disc, and I discovered my name on the “contemporaries” list. Crazy! (see below)

Iphone Updates

Holy cow! They’ve got a lot of new features coming out, including the ability to cut & paste. Finally! It also has a lot of cool little things like being able to shake it to shuffle your music and adding the landscape mode to a lot more areas.

Hopefully, they fixed a lot of the bugs in the firmware. I’m so tired of my phone locking up in the middle of something as simple as sending a text message.
