Structural Modernism of the Mies van der Rohe Seagram Building, 375 Park Avenue

Hi folks, sorry for the lack of updates, but this picture is for an assignment for my class here at Moorpark College.

I'm learning about Photoshop in this assignment and learning how to manipulate photos. I slightly changed the hues by adding "Curves" of Red, Green, and Blue to the picture. I'm adding a 2nd image for a little more dramatic effect.

God as a space cadet

It's time travellin' time, I had a chance to work on some shows to put up and still I've got tons of shows to release. This was early in September at the Troubadour without an opener. It was a phenomenal setlist with a 3 song encore, BUT they really didn't get off stage and announced they were going to piledrive us with the so-called encore! The set clocks in at roughly an hour and a half which required much stamina, but at least they fed off the energy of the crowd. It was good seeing some friends at this show which made it even better for enjoyment.

Why I'd like to Hate it too

There was a lot of woo-haa RE; this recent show with Hum co-headlining/opening for Touche Amore. It was Touche Amore's show and they asked Hum to play as well as Balance & Composure. Thus, it's not a Hum headlining show. With that cleared, there were a lot of Humheads that stayed for Hum and left when Touche Amore showed up. It was an opportunity for Hum to win over some of the hipster hxc kids... This show wasn't sold out unfortunately, but the New York show was and they played 2 newish songs there (Inklings and Cloud City). At the Fox, Hum only played Inklings and it gets better every time I hear it. I'm about to pass out, so I'm signing off till I hibernate for the evening... enjoy...


I saw Jesus

Is the coast clear? Hehehe, 9 days after the album release of Big Jesus, here's the whole set opening for Nothing, Wrong, and Tennis System...


20 Fantastic Planets

It happened... Last night was Failure's 20th Anniversary of Fantastic Planet at the Roxy. From what I gathered from friends that went to the previous 2 nights was that this was the show that topped the Pomona and San Diego shows. What an event, it was Fan Plan front to back and it brought back memories of the Whisky show, but this was even better than that. NOTE: they filmed with about a half dozen professional cameras ranging from the big studio cameras to DSLRs. Priscilla Scott was manning one of the cams in the VIP area at the edge. They had the "filming" disclosure posted outside of the venue and my buddy Dave Boccuzzi "ham'd" it up for the cameras last night. It was a glorious night indeed, full of friends and people I call family showed up for this special show. 20 years, man, I'm old... but loving the memories!
