Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink, he would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Some times he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical, summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds, pretty standard really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum, it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.

Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear Washington DC 10/30/10.

It was awesome. Everyone was mellow, no one was causing a ruckus. There were no provocateurs. I would never have thought that 300,000 people could behave so well together. It gives me hope for humanity.

I attended UBCON XXI this weekend. It’s a huge gaming convention with all the usual stuff… Card games, board games, LARPS, RPGs, Nerf War, cosplay, etc. I was there vending my Geek Reek candles & soaps, so most of my time was spent in the dealer’s room. I did manage to sneak out & get a few shots of the activities.

MCS Theme Day – Original content (not my fridge).
This is the painted portion of my Tyranids army for Warhammer 40k. I assembled, modified, painted and photographed these models myself.

The Carnifex (the really big bug) is assembled with glue and magnets, meaning that all of his parts are modular and swappable. I used rare earth magnets on his arms, head and carapace to allow him to be reconfigured between battles.

My wife’s bucket list got shorter this weekend. Tandem jump at Frontier Skydivers near Lockport, NY. She said she wants to jump again next summer. If she does, I’ll definitely jump with her instead of taking pictures.

Shot on my way back from Toronto a few years ago. Even if you live half an hour from the falls, it never gets any less magnificent. Unless your a small child who was woken up and dragged out of the car. The odd motes around my son’s face are reflections from the constant mist messing with the camera.

October 2006, Buffalo New York. The snow you see in these images fell in one night. The trees were not ready for winter, and many branches simply snapped under the extreme weight of the thick, wet blankets of snow. It was very creepy standing on my back porch that night, the heavy silence punctuated by the gunshot-like snapping of tree limbs.

The tables you see in the first shot are cable spools on top of tree stumps, to give an idea of scale. Most people in the area were without power for up to a week because of power lines snapping everywhere. The weight of the snow actually pulled some telephone poles out of their moorings due to the wires being pulled down.

Also, enjoy the action shot of my neighbor snowblowing.

The good: Watching neighbors come together to pull branches off of everyone’s yard, and offer food & supplies to each other.
The bad: People who had to wait even longer for power because assholes stole the fallen lines and sold the copper for scrap.
