You Must See Comedian Hannah Gadsby’s Show: Nanette

I generally do not enjoy standup comedy. You see, I typically find the jokes a bit (or very) offensive1 or just not really funny. Often, the jokes are just low level humor. But, occasionally, I’ll hear a joke that’s actually hysterical. Netflix has been hosting a series of comedy specials. I’ve watched a few with mixed results. But the last… Continue reading

Waldo Has a Conversation with Mr. Squirrel

I’m posting this not so much because the photos are cute, but because all of the photos were shot with my iPhone X. I was inside the house with Waldo. He and the squirrel were having a casual conversation with each other. The squirrel was outside and was at least 25 feet away from us. I had the Moment 60mm… Continue reading

My SmugMug Labor Continues

I’ve been working ferociously uploading photos to SmugMug. In fact, at this point, I’ve uploaded over 13,000 photos–literally. The Re-Org I’m not sure I’m even halfway! I’m re-organizing the photos, and that takes a good bit of time. I’ve tried really, really hard not to edit any of the photos–an all but impossible task. I see a photo from even… Continue reading

You Must Have the Day One Journal App

While I’m in mood to rave about things that really work (Yesterday I just wrote my post about the Movi Freefly Personal Cinema Robot.), I want to talk about a piece of software I’ve been using since it first came out: the Day One Journal app. This is the most awesome journal software I’ve ever seen, and I’ve just about… Continue reading

Mōvi Freefly Personal Cinema Robot: An Update

So my Mōvi arrived. (You can read about what it is in my first post at this link.) Loving it! I waited until I went back to San Francisco to try it out because I have been feverishly busy sorting, sifting, tuning, and uploading thousands of photos to my new SmugMug website, and I literally mean thousands of them—over 13,000… Continue reading

San Francisco Symphony, Daniil Trofonov, Rachmaninoff

The Sibelius symphonies were lovely. Really. I shouldn’t downplay their performance. But… Now, let’s talk about what we really came to hear: Daniil Trofonov’s performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3! Russian pianist Daniil Trofonov more or less slithered out onto the stage with his long straight hair covering his face. He never looked at the audience. He just walked… Continue reading

The Current State of Phoneography

When it comes to the current state of iPhoneography, the Moment lens system is a game changer. Now the photographer can choose their field of view with a smartphone and get a good quality image. Moment also has a camera app that really works well with their lenses. The Moment phone case with a built in battery is also sweet!… Continue reading

Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, and Fiat 500e Owner Comparison

This post is a Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, and Fiat 500e owner comparison. I’m a huge fan of electric-powered transportation. We have 3 cars (two in Atlanta, and one in San Francisco). All of them are electric. We purchased them in this order: a Nissan Leaf (2011), a Tesla Model S (2014), and the Fiat 500e (2017). Since we… Continue reading
