Tesla Road Trip: Vacaville Supercharger

We took our first road trip in Nick—driving to Martinez for a bit of business1. We then decided to head up to Vacaville for lunch. We wanted to visit the Vacaville supercharger station. We really didn’t need to charge, but the whole idea was to try it out. This was our first supercharger experience. It’s free. It’s blazing fast. You… Continue reading

Religious Corporate Personhood

David Green (Net worth $5.1 billion according to Forbes) at Hobby Lobby’s Corporate Office What could be better than corporations being counted as living breathing people in our “democracy?” What could be better than allowing corporations to contribute as much money to politicians as they want, because money is free speech! Corporations are people. People are entitled to free speech!… Continue reading

Your Local Police Militarization

Does this not concern anyone but me?! Does this make you feel safer??! This is insane! We are running in the wrong direction as fast as we can. Why? Police militarization is hurting the wrong people. Is government anticipating our running out of drinking water because of all of the fracking poisoning the drinking water or because of the depletion… Continue reading

Preferred Suicide Destinations

I find it incomprehensible that 50 people commit suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge every year. Security forces and passersby talk down from the ledge about another 100 people who are intent on killing themselves. This means that ever 2 to 3 days, someone attempts suicide from the bridge, and about every third person succeeds. All told, in… Continue reading

Time Lapse Composite

I wanted to do something a little bit different with this time lapse of the fog blasting through the Golden Gate; so, I decided to make a time lapse composite: Room with a View. I shot a picture of the view from the living room. It was bright outside; so, it wasn’t possible to expose for both the outside and… Continue reading

Macro Photography: Tin Car on the Ocean

So today, with my little tin car in hand, I headed to Rodeo beach to shoot some traveling car adventures myself. The wind was completely out of control!1 Problems abounded! My tripod was much too high to frame the shot I wanted—macros that included background of the… Continue reading

Tesla Continues to Impress Me

I recently posted about my service experience with Tesla. Shortly after that post we received a feedback survey from the company. The survey was short and to the point and included a text box in which you could type anything else you wished to share. I shared most of my general thoughts about the service experience the same ones I… Continue reading

Attend Bob Jones University?

Moms and dads , if you can read and watch this and still bless your child’s attendance at Bob Jones University, I simply have no respect for you. None.I‘ve written a lot about my former alma mater, Bob Jones University. But, you know, the truth is: I want to stop writing about this family business. I don’t like spending my… Continue reading

360º Panorama Time Lapse Videos!

Vincent Brady Firefly Long Exposure on Lake Photo I hesitate to use a photo for this post, because each segment of his video has such a different look, and, as fantastic as they are, a photo misrepresents the most vital element of his work: the live motion. But these photos were on his site, which I recommend you check out!… Continue reading

Chocolate and Bacon?

A few months back I seemed to encounter a number of experiences advocating adding bacon to everything. Since most of this was online, I thought it was some sort of ridiculous meme. Then today, in the grocery store, I saw Mo’s Milk Bar1: 45% deep milk chocolate, hickory smoked uncured bacon, and alder wood smoked salt. Chocolate and bacon? Are… Continue reading
