bent festival

I’m going to be at the Bent Festival this weekend. My band Mister Resistor is playing Saturday night and I’m going to be making some sort of site-specific sound sculpture on the spot during the festival. Both things are pretty much improvised, but there’s likely to be some of the Piperita and perhaps a bit of the zombie guitar and a large helping of cheddar city.

Presented by The Tank
All workshops and concerts will be held at
Eyebeam Atelier

13 years of photoblogging!

I’ve been doing this since 1994! Thirteen years!

(Jan. 13, 1994: These photos were taken with a Hi8 camcorder and captured on a Mac Quadra AV – remember those? Back when digital still cameras were heavier and more expensive than camcorders!)

This photoset from later that month seems to have suffered from an attack of bit-moths.

Wow, remember when a 130K JPG was so big you had to post a warning?

Have you been posting your photos on the web for a long long time? Please leave a comment!
