Running this one a little early, since I've got a weird schedule today. Taken at the Museum of Neon Art, back when they were downtown LA, not Glendale like they are now. Photo data says 2004, which tracks, since I lived a lot closer to LA then and could make it up there at basically a moment's notice.
Something different today. This photo actually shot by my daughter. Yes, that's me in my office being a gamer, playing WORLD OF WARCRAFT. I'm guessing this is 2007-2008 maybe. The camera in question was a bright orange literal toddlers camera. Wish I could be more specific. It was made of mostly rigid, but somewhat pliable plastic that felt something like I imagine a recently-dead body might. I never told her my feeling on that. Note the two comics splash pages hanging in fro
Tustin, CA 2004. The airship hangar at Tustin airbase, which is a colossal structure whose scale is not effectively conveyed in this photo. Wonder if it's still standing? It was in 2013 when I went last, but they were clearing land around it. Ugh. That white point.
Another week of weird and wonderful links. Okay, mostly weird, at least in conjunction with one another. https://filmmaker.bandcamp.com/album/spectral You'll like it or you'll hate it. Kind of a fusion of late 80s EBM and current-day synthwave sounds, which shouldn't be a surprisng combination at all. LAist takes on an oral history of BLADE RUNNER. This from last November, given the whole Los Angeles, November 2019 thing that went around like wildfire. Still, worth a look or
Okay, so you may or may not know that I'm actually a writer. I'd say for my day job, but that'd be a lie. And I'm working on a follow-on to the weird-fantasy/crime book of mine that came out in 2018, QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS. This one's called MY DROWNING CHORUS. And it's been kind of a doozy. I've managed to box myself in several times in the outline phase, but I think I've finally broken that, even if I don't know 100% of the answers to what's going on in the book. I'm hoping
Yeah, sorry, distracted this weekend. So, canonically, this is the photo entry for 1/18/20. Taken near Eloy, Arizona. Early, early morning during the monsoon season. Here's 1/19/20, taken at Rice Air Force Base (decommissioned) in, oh geez, probably 1988 or 1989. Possibly even earlier. Scan of a film print and yes, I'm so lazy, I didn't fix that error right in the middle of things. Hell, it might've even been on the print itself. And today's, 1/20/20. Taken in 1992, Joshua Tr
Because I told Richard Kadrey I'd post this one today, my favorite picture that I've taken in NYC. Went there back in 2014. Would like to go again, but life has not cooperated. This is, of course, the Chrysler building. I like the sort of O'Keefe on acid effect of the long shutter. This was taken with the Leica DLX, which actually got smacked against the ground during the trip and refused to work for a time. It eventually came back around.
