Getting Emulsional Over Colors

Getting Emulsional Over Colors

These colors were created by forming an emulsion of cooking oil and water drops on the shiny side of a CD, and then shining a bright light on to the mixture. I used my 60 mm macro lens focused as closely as possible. The colors can be changed by partially blocking the light, and also by using a mirror to change where the light goes. This is fun stuff to play with. This is straight photography (whatever that is), and not created on a computer, although I used Photoshop to adjust contrast, saturation and remove tiny bubbles and specks of dust. It’s not possible to go to the Canadian Rockies or Baja California every day.

More of these photographs of colorful emulsions are in my pretentiously titled Emulsion Art album.

Patch cable goes from the analog headphone jack in my cheap Sony boombox that has a tape deck to my MacBook Pro computer that has an input jack to accept the other side of the cable. After taking the photo I noticed the dust on this thing. I guess I need to do some dusting.

DailyShoot 390: Anxious

DailyShoot 390: Anxious

"What makes you anxious? Illustrate it in a photograph today."

This is the side of a 27" iMac at work. Dust on the screen plus direct sunlight equals SO MUCH AGGRIVATION and also a swift wipe with a sleeve.

Love the bokeh from the brightly-lit dust particles through my old NIKKOR 105mm ?/2.8 manual lens.

Salvation Brothers – Jesus is My Bombadier

Salvation Brothers - Jesus is My Bombadier

(RPI MusicNews) – Leaving no major religion unscathed in a tsunami of grinding feedback and feral screams, Jesus is My Bombadier, the sophomore effort from the Billings, Montana Christian hatecore trio Salvation Brothers makes it clear from the opening track “My Way or the Hellway” that the band cares less about making friends than saving souls – on their own uncompromising terms.

With the remaining song titles too offensive for publication, it’s also clear the band’s mission extends far beyond making just “music to blast while slaughtering unbelievers.”

“Look, we testify to The Way and The Way is pretty simple. You can’t get to heaven unless it’s through Jesus, and you can’t really get to Jesus unless it’s through Ned,” explains drummer Jessie Samkin, speaking of the group’s frontman/guitarist/spiritual leader Ned Jacobs.

“Jim Jones, David Koresh, Henry Kissinger – these were false prophets,” Jacobs explains. “I am the REAL DEAL. Look here’s proof,” he says, rolling up his sleeve to reveal a tatoo reading "The REAL DEAL."

Jacobs had his religious epiphany while recovering from food poisoning from a bad prison cafeteria taco during a 3-year stint at a Georgia minimum-security correctional facility for aggravated assault on a mime.

The group, currently living together in a dingy 2-bedroom apartment above “The Snack Shack” in downtown Billings, hopes to someday buy a ranch and set up a religious utopia/armed compound from which it will it one day launch what Jacobs calls “The War of Salvation.”

According to Jacobs, first phase of the coming war will be launched when the Chosen One (Jacobs himself) gives three blasts from “The Trumpet of the Archangel” – an action that according to Jacobs will cause all churches, mosques and synagogues to crumble into dust.

“At that point a billion-strong army of True Christian Centurians will rise up to wreck slaughter and death on the unbelieving hordes,” he says.

As a bonus feature, the CD comes with a computer-animated simulation of this apocalyptical prophesy.

In the meantime, the band hopes their sophomore effort sells better than their debut – “Smells Like Burning Unbelievers“ – which sold 16 copies.

The band is still setting up its tour in support of the album, but to date has only booked a single date, “KlanFest & Boogie 2007,” next spring at an undisclosed location in rural Georgia.

compacting compact discs

compacting compact discs

So I’m in the middle of re-digitizing our entire CD collection in a nice, high quality ACC format that should be good for a decade or so… In doing so, I’m taking all of the art out of my CD’s and recycling the plastic cases that would just be going into storage anyway. This is the stack of tray cards and booklets of some of our CD’s.

You may or may not like the music… Heck, I don’t anymore in some cases.
