Recent shots from my Flickr.
A Month With a New Camera, a set on Flickr.
Sam took this photo earlier this week. The shape of the photo, wardrobe, and our general creepy appearance reminded me of a Christian folk album, so I decided to name us The Tabernacle Groove Machine. Still working on our band’s backstory, but I can already tell you every sexual combination between these four band members has definitely transpired in the back of a wood-paneled tour van. The album is self-titled.

Brews is back.
Like most who are flocking to their iObjects to share their feelings, I never came close to knowing or even meeting Steve Jobs. Yet I sit here distinctly upset. In fact, I have not had this sort of reaction since the death of Meet The Press host, Tim Russert.
Both men existed and died atop and removed from their respective fields. Jobs’ took daily use devices that large corporations fucked up on purpose to make more money (see bloatware on PCs and carrier crippled phones) and made them a joy to see and use. Russert was one of the few journalists capable of confronting politicians with their lies on live national tv. Russert-era Meet the Press was the most watched Sunday news show and Apple recently passed Exon as the most valuable company in the world.
With the passing of Jobs and Russert the world has lost two Great Men. Men who were unhindered by the rules of “the way things are normally done.” Men who were able to take two of the most aggressively frustrating parts of the modern world, politics and tech, and do their part to make them quite a bit more bearable.
For me, the saddest part is that they were not done. No one has been held accountable for the collapse of the American economy and it is still regularly painful to navigate the computers that we are forced to live and work on. They still had work to do. Now it is our responsibility to put down our Plants and Zombies game, continue their quests and think up new solutions for the struggles to come.
Thank you Steve and Tim. Thank you for your work and the standards that you set.
