I think I'm going to do one of those things where you take a picture every day for a year. Not because I want to take more pictures but because I think it will encourage me to carry my camera around more. There have been so many times when I wished I had my camera with me and no reason that I couldn't just leave it in my car(other than thievery).

I watched Buena Vista Social club last night. Man, those Cubans are poor! The music was sweet though, so I want to pick up the album. I've always found it weird how such oppressed cultures can be so vibrant, but really I suppose they NEED to be able to celebrate to survive. Well, unless you live in the old communist eastern block regimes. You know, in Soviet Russia...oh never mind.

I wish I had a little electronic notepad that I could draw pictures on(with a stylus). I'm continually wanting to illustrate something but I can't draw with a mouse. Actually I can't draw anyway, but I think I could at least get my point across if I could draw with a stylus. I thought the future was now.

This is a neat picture. It looks like they superimposed an astronaut on the album cover of Dark Side of the Moon.

We have multiple digital cameras, and I keep telling myself that I need to take one of the smaller ones and keep it in my purse so I have it. I'm not a "photo a day" kind of person, but I do see neat things that strike me as very photographable at times, and I wish I had a camera on me. My cellphone camera does NOT cut it.

Unfortunately, I am one shitty photographer. It's kind of the family joke, and what's worse is that the smallest camera (that I'd be carrying around) is pretty unforgiving.

Yeah I'm a pretty sucky photographer, which is why my cellphone camera definitely won't cut the mustard. At least with my regular camera i can get semi-clear pictures, even if the framing bites.

I would like to suck less, but I'm too lazy to take steps to improve myself.

As far as neat pictures, I'd like to call your attention to this. Not the first picture, the second one.

I remember that picture coming up on APoD and thinking how cool it was!

Well I have my cell phone camera, which is probably better than that, but it's not really good enough for what I want.

Yeah, on this movie there was this famous performer and they showed his house and it was a total rathole, but he was all happy about it and stuff. Makes me feel kind of pathetic when I get embarrassed of my condo sometimes. :o

I have the Buena Vista album - really awesome! But I've never seen the movie.

The movie was a little boring. After a while I just left it on and listened to the music. If you like the music though, you would find it much more interesting, since you know more about Latin culture and stuff and wouldn't be as distracted by subtitling.

Oh, I WOULD be distracted by subtitles. Cubans speak fucked up Spanish!

Before you go buying the soundtrack, don't.

I've owned it for like 3 years now. It;s one of my favorites.

See you tomorrow!

I can think of only one word to describe that photograph: bad ass.
