I carry two cameras. The first — an A2E, the camera I bought for myself when I came to grad school, a.k.a. my 'good' camera — is always loaded with Tri-X, the entire year of 2002 notwithstanding. The second — an Elan 2E, the camera my parents gave me in college when I became photo editor of the Targum, a.k.a. my 'backup' camera — is always loaded with my all-time favorite film, the always saturated, always warm, color positive extravaganza Kodak calls E100SW. Sadly, Kodak has discontinued my favorite film, presumably as part of their fire-ten-percent-of-their-workforce-and-give-up-on-film- altogether initiative. I bought myself a brick of good ol' E100SW on eBay for posterity, and that should last me for four more years, if I'm careful. However, this situation will certainly put in the unfortunate predicament of having to decide whether a particular scene is 'spongeworthy' or not.

Places to go, People to see...

Still Stompin' at the Savoy

I've settled into a second-Tuesday of the month schedule, so don't miss my radio show on 89.5 FM, mid-missouri's source for in-depth news, diverse talk, and music of the world. It's more than radio, it's community radio, folks!

The WAOVW Drinking Game!

I can't believe I didn't do this first, but someone has created the Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf Drinking Game. My favorite thing is the cards they made up for the characters:

and the brilliant addition of a fifth player:

Nellie's Wedding

Nellie, my best friend from high school, got married on October 26 in Puerto Rico. (Check out www.nellieandjason.com for more about Nellie and Jason and their wedding.)


A brief, and somewhat fictional, history of an important art movement.

While not quite as lively as the house on anthony street, the House on Stewart Road is nonetheless my favorite residence of all time. It doesn't have a kitchen counter, but it does have a really nice office in which to hang out. And unlike my old apartment, my upstairs neighbor won't come down in uniform to threaten me with a noise violation.

The latest in the exciting series of alphanumerically named galleries takes us to The House On Windsor several times, as well as to my parents' aforementioned secure, undisclosed location where my sister repeatedly points out "Your act hasn't changed much," to which I can only reply, "Neither has yours."

In April, to commemorate the 29th anniversary of my birth, I went to New York. Purely by chance, this coincided with the relocation of my parents from their apartment in San Juan to a secure, undisclosed location in central New Jersey. Aging, travel, relocation, breakfast foods - it's the circle of life in 36 pictures, people. Go crazy.

Where the same people gather at the same place week after week to take the same pictures over and over again. Also, please note the inordinate amount of time my friends and I spend in each others kitchens.

I live in a two bedroom apartment. I love it. Even so, I sleep on the couch. Much the same way I do most of my sleeping in the living room, I do most of my entertaining in the kitchen. Here's a gallery devoted to my favorite place to hang out, and my favorite people to hang out with.

It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer the Macarena was in style, and I didn't know what I was doing in Puerto Rico. I spent about seven weeks in Nellie's apartment on Calle Doctor Basora, watching her cat while she was in Australia, reading The Bell Jar and listening to Ella Fitzgerald, who died while I was there. Nothing much happened that summer, but I kind of like the pictures.

In the summer of 1995 I bought a blue stuffed gecko at The Nature Company in New York's South Street Seaport. My friend Gwyneth and I decided to name it Harvey after a classmate of ours from High School. I've been photographing him ever since.
