Faceing the book

February 18, 2009 2 comments

Finally got on facebook.com, what a tool it is for finding everyone, been on MySpace for years but never really found old friends. Been spending time finding friends, getting accepted and going through their friends to see if we know more of the same people and repeating this over and over. Kids I used to look after are adults, bikers, fighter pilots, parents, secretaries, lawyers and many more. going though their pics too shows how much time has passed, many of my teen buddies have up and coming teenagers, ex-GF’s were the hardest or girls I had teen crushes on all married and with kids, but that is life, we grow up and life takes us in different ways and places.

Face the book, take a look and enjoy this medium to connect with others you’d never meet again if it were not for this way!

Well been busy and been sick, and more busy catching up and then sick again. Thought I’d do something different this time as I have not been taking pics to post some great ones I’ve seen on the news wires lately, enjoy!

obama-thoughtsOh bummer – Three weeks on the job and looking tired, this great AP pic shows how much the stress on that job is. Still no big recovery bill passed, his buddies not nominated for tax problems, sure not what he thought it was going to be like riding off on his white horse into the sunset waving his magic wand of “change”. My bet is he’ll be gray haired before years out.

FRANCE BUGATTI AUCTIONRoad plow – This 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante Coupe, ever seen a front like that? I’ve taken pics at old car shows before including a 1939 Tata with three headlights, but this one man! Was one of the fastest cars in the world at the time but looks like it has a snow plow in front that is not the standard for speed aerodynamic, but i guess it worked, wonder what the mileage was. I’d love to have been there in those days and see all these innovative ideas sprawling the roads, today mass produced cars are all same-ish, and no radical new ideas or looks.

APTOPIX Britain SupercarOK, a wide angle Fisheye lens makes it even wider, but fascinating! Other great pics from AP can be seen here.

Senate Saints? – It seems that new thing for press photog to take pics up-angle of Senators delivering speeches and press briefings under the dome of Capital Hill. Poor Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, has to deliver bad news, but this is not the angle for him, he looks like a Dr. Seuss character already and the press takes pics of him with a “halo”? Is the country in such bad shape they have to keep peoples moral high with subliminal hints like this that they are elevated above us?

Cheeky butt– A Celebes Crested Macaque, how can we be realted?

Ghost Town

ghost-town-poster-2This is a fantastic movie! At first you say “not another Ghost movie”, but right away you see it opens up very different and keeps you guessing and hollering the whole time. Staring Ricky Gervais, Greg Kinnear, Tea Leoni, the last two are great actors but I’d never heard of Ricky Gervais before but seems to have had a long career in writing/producing TV shows and a standup comedian, he really brings something new to the story, a role they might have casted Huge Grant in as a awkward Brit, but would not have been as funny and witty, as the big guy really plays both who he is to start and who he becomes so well, they are so opposite yet so him. Great movie, I’m not going to give away more of the plot, very worth watching, meaningful, light and one of those movies like “Stranger then Fiction” that do not get a lot of promotion but are well worth the time and well written and acted.
