Not dead yet!

Filed in 2013, Family, GeneralTags: ,

We’re all still here. A lot has happened in the year or so since my last post. A brief synopsis:

  • We moved to a new house. Still a rental, but much, much nicer and larger than the last one. I still miss the loft though.
  • Got caught in the Weather Channel layoffs and rebounded right back to work across the street at CBeyond in less than 8 days. Didn’t even miss a pay check.
  • Wendi ended up in the hospital in December for 3 days. She’s fine, but needs about $10k in dental work.
  • Galen’s growing like a weed and wants to learn JAVA so he can “make mine craft mods because it doesn’t do what I want it to!”
  • Bought a van to haul all my photo gear and models around in. It’s going to be great for Alchemy too. No more tetrising our camp gear into a small trunk. Now we can pack All the Things!
  • Brian moved back to Orlando. He’s much happier and to be honest, he should never have left there. It’s his home.
  • More fun stuff coming down the pipe and with pics to prove it. I’m getting back into video again too. Yea me!

That’s it for now.

.. long live Dreamland Visions!!

Dreamland Visions is dead.. long live Dreamland Visions!

After way too many years with a hand built, manually updated photography gallery site, I finally popped a cap in the head of that monstrosity of tables and frames.

The new site is built on WordPress and Gallery2 with other tech in the works for other suuuuuper-seeekrit plans (queue maniacal laughter).

Here’s the link, go there.   Just don’t do it from work.  You should know me better than that by now.

DragonCon TV – Klingon Apartment

Filed in General

For the first time in 15+ years I undertook a serious video editing project.  I am grateful to have been given the chance to do a bit for DragonCon TV.

Klingon Apartment [DCTV 2010]

Let me know what you think.  I didn’t write or shoot it, just the editing and sound effects.

It feels damned good to be doing this again.  It’s something I moved to Atlanta to pursue as a career.  Why I didn’t is a topic for a much longer, introspective, volatile and depressing post.


I’m gonna be a granddad!

Filed in Familial Stuff, General

Well, technically a step-granddad.   Wendi got a call from her son, Justin (living with the paternal unit out in Arkansas) this weekend to let us know his fiance is pregnant.

Not sure how I feel about being even a step-granddad before I’m even 40.

I feel old now.

Get off my lawn!  (guess I need to start practicing that now)

Ok, the link to the new photo gallery is on the right.  Nope.. down.. down.. up.. there!  You got it.


New Blog

Filed in General

Yeah, it’s yet another blog.   I’ve been using Livejournal, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Tribe, and gods know what else for years.   I may even still have an account on some old 80’s BBSs that are still up.

Time to bring it all home and under my own banner.

I’m not going to do a full content dump of all of those other sites here.  Links to them will be in the sidebar eventually.

For now, this is just where I can babble about all the mundane inanities that go on in between the Burning Man regionals, arts festivals, photo shoots, data center blackouts, and all those other things that help keep the makers of blood pressure meds in fur coats and Porches.

So without further to do, and because it’s already 1:10am on a work night, I’m going to close this missive with a note to all of my family.

Note: (see, said it was going to be a note) I put all of the pictures of Galen that were on my Flickr up in the gallery now.   Go there and see him in all his 5 year old hyperactivity.

Link in the next post.
