Where else are you, online?

Lately I've been really enjoying reading other people's blog/journals/diaries/whatever-they're-being-called-now. So, my question for you, dear readers is... where else do you have an online presence? Care to share?  

I've been getting a little carried away myself... Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr... they all get a decent amount of attention from me. Or at least get updated more often than I update most things here :) Those status update things are awesome... and the ability to directly upload a photo to your blog/facebook/site from your cell phone?!:faint: how cool is that?!

You can find links to most of my other online homes in the column to the left <-- Feel free to add me, or watch me, or follow me, or whatever. Oh, and don't forget to send me a message or something with your dA username so I know who's adding me :)

Do you read blogs on Google Reader? Do you share blogs there? Do you want to share links with me? Note me your email address and we can connect.

Obama is the next President of the USA

"We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics. And they will only grow louder and more dissonant in the weeks and months to come. We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

"For when we have faced down impossible odds, when we've been told we're not ready or that we shouldn't try or that we can't, generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can. Yes, we can. Yes, we can.

"It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation: Yes, we can. It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail towards freedom through the darkest of nights: Yes, we can. It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness: Yes, we can. It was the call of workers who organized, women who reached for the ballot, a president who chose the moon as our new frontier, and a king who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the promised land: Yes, we can, to justice and equality.

"Yes, we can, to opportunity and prosperity. Yes, we can heal this nation. Yes, we can repair this world. Yes, we can."

--Barack Obama, January 8, 2008

Damn! McCain's concession speech was one of the best he's given so far. You've really got to read it... or definitely watch it if you get a chance... far more powerful that way. Really the sort of stuff that got people excited about him in the first place. I'm glad to see the 'Old McCain' back. I really hope that now that the election is over, the 'Old McCain' stays.

Wow... I just watched the speech again while I was looking for a link to the video... damn that was a powerful speech!

Hey all.

Just a quick note to see how everyone is doing.


I went on a photo-meet/group shoot thing last night that was pretty exciting... got a chance to really learn how some of my lights work... and found a really excellent location to do some shoots of my own in the future.


So, I was listening to this show called Wiretap on my headphones at the gym. It's rather similar to This American Life, in that it's a radio show, that's not about the news, or debating current affairs... it's amusing and poignant at times. And the hosts sound quite alike. Anyway... on this particular episode I was listening to, I heard this:
According to the Greek philosopher Archilochus, people are either foxes or hedgehogs. Foxes know a little about a lot of small things, and hedgehogs know a lot about one big thing.

So what are you?

PS - I'd really love to hear some ideas for halloween costumes. Right now, I'm thinking something with EL-wire... but we shall see.
