Bringing Blogging Bac

Let’s set the record straight together.  Blogging during the summertime is apparently much harder than it sounds.  Everything has been so crazy, and mixed up… but now I feel like the excitement of summer is settling down, and all my friends are leaving to head back to school, while I hang out working, and searching for a new grown-up job.

In the meantime, summer was rockin.  Holding down a 40 hour a week job, while still finding time to hang out every day was a blast.  Also, I had one of the best times ever in Las Vegas for my birthday, where we saw Blink-182 on night 2 of their reunion tour.  It was “Mark Tom and Travis Show” meets everything Blink had built since then.  The legend will never die, and thus my teen years through my 20 somethings will be reserved forever.

Here’s some pictures of recent events now that I feel comfortable carrying a camera again.  I hope to use this blog now as a place to store my photos so I can easily make an image portfolio.

Here’s some fun from Vegas and our trip to Deanna Rose Children’s Farm in Overland Park, Kansas.

DJ’ing Weddings, and Living the High Life

So, Since my last post I have since graduated from college with a degree in Mass Media Production.  Also, we’ve been DJ’ing some weddins… today was a great day in Arkansas DJ’ing in Mammoth Springs, Arkansas.  Here are some pictures after we finished up, and got to explore the park!

Photojournalism, Public affairs, and a general update

Missouri State University every year puts on a Public Affairs Conference, here are a few pictures from one of the panels I went to listen in on.

I’ll write more about these for class tomorrow, but here’s my pics.

Dear Shure, If you’d like to buy this for a Promotional photo, I’ll let you.

After the public affairs shindig, there was much more to be had.  My friends Ryan and Tomas came to visit this weekend from Mizzou, and we adventured to the exotic animal paradise park.  The drive through park lent itself to crazy encounters with a camel, ostrich, zebras, donkeys, and several other animals.

Here’s some pics from that

I also have some Pictures from SATO 48 to upload that I took for Brett Moser.  I’m still in the process of uploading those ones, but here’s some of what I have so far.

Guess the first lines

So, my friend Amanda, recently posted a forward thing on Facebook that I thought was fun.  Normally, I look at people’s responses, and generally ignore these list forwards.  However, sometimes I’ll find one that I want to partake in, and then I do… and typically only share the result with Brett, who then proceeds to partake as well in secret.

However, now YOU get to play too!

In this little snazzy forward game, I have put my Ipod on shuffle, and put down the first line of lyrics on the first 25 songs that came up.

Now you guess what songs they are!  If you get one right, you get a gold star.
Here’s my list.

1. Another day, another clean break, another ciggarette and I think I’m gonna be ok.

2. Can’t stop, won’t stop the rhythm going.

3. I swim across an ocean, it’s my mattress in the basement.

4. Your lipstick his collar, don’t bother angel I know exactly what goes on.

10. In our society many dogs in many variations, c’mon let’s talk.

11. Waitress out dressed like nurses in bondage.

12. Evil has a sweet, sweet scent.

13. Yesterday I went outside with my mamma’s mason jar.

15. I rode a western wind with a girl over to her mothers.

16. Everybody get up, it’s time to slam now.

17. Love was a promise made of smoke in a frozen corpse of trees.

18. Dont want a four leaf clover, Don’t want an old horse shoe.

19. Now, whos hot who not tell me who rock who sell out in the stores.

20. You’re a canary, I’m a coal mine.

Baseball season is here!

I could really care less about baseball, but I’m glad that it means baskeball is overwith.

This post is going to be freaking gigantic due to the fact I’m going to try to use it for a few different assignments.  First, obviously for the “Sports shot” criteria, but also for the photo story.  I tried to get every aspect of the stadium, and the team in this shoot.  I have more pics to add to this collection as well, but these were my favs so far!

I hope you enjoy them.

I’ll write cutlines tomorrow sometime…. (ooor not)

One of these things is not like the other.

Actually this whole post is just a random photo post.

It’s time for some pictures I just had laying around on my camera from trips I’ve taken from Springfield to Branson, and back home to Lee’s Summit.

Photo Journalism Feature

These pics are from the Home, Lawn and Garden Show at Kansas City’s Bartle Hall Convention Center.  I have more to upload from this, but these are my tentative three I’m putting up for the assignment in photojournalism.

A Night At Finnegan’s Wake

This Post is going to be my environmental profile pics on the owner of Finnegan’s Wake downtown… Or at least the first few pics will be for my assignment.

So, I’ll be the first to say the second two pictures are to far away, and trashy.  However, I really like the two different worlds presented in the first pic.

_________ owner of Finnigans' Wake loves to chat with bargoers, but knows when to take care of business.

This pic is terrible.

Finnegans' Wake just added 12 new beers to the bar's draft last week; just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

It's difficult not to have a good time when Finnegan's Wake owner, Tom Muetzel makes witty remarks as he pours.

Here’s some other pics from the rest of the night, where my friends accompanied me on my photojournalism assignment.  Always a fun time.  I’m down for darts or shuffleboard anytime.
