Gone Postal

I forgot to mention it but a month or so ago I won the going postal quiz challenge... it was pretty straight forward and from it I gained access to the attrition.org photo gallery. I haven't used it yet, but someday it may come in useful.

A Fake Moon Rising

million dollar faux moon

The other night there was some filming going on atop the ex-million dollar hotel, which is currently the Rosslyn. The film crew erected a giant glowing sphere which looked a bit like the moon balloon from AI. I took some shots of it from my loft window and created this HDR from 3 of them.

Honeymoon

We had the most wonderful honeymoon ever. We didn't want to come back to America, but hey life is about compromise right? We are currently sorting through our photos and our memories and will be posting a complete trip report in the coming days.

The Newlyweds

I just want to put up a quick post to say the wedding went wonderfully and we had a great time. I would write more, but I have to pack for the honeymoon in Fiji.

Dear Youtube and Google Video

I pay good money for a 6mbit DSL connection. Why can I not stream video from your site in real time? It works great from Apple's quicktime trailer site. What is the deal?

BBC 1Xtra coming to Los Angeles

The BBC has a show station called 1Xtra that covers "New Black Music" which includes drum'n'bass / jungle. They are coming out across the pond to check out what is happening in the scene out here in Los Angeles as well as 3 other US cities: NY, Houston and Atlanta.

1Xtra is visiting four corners of the USA to bring you the freshest in new black music, interviews with the biggest stars, and a series of massive live shows!

They are going to be interviewing me about junglescene.com as well as the LA scene in general. They are coming out here the day before my wedding so it will be a bit hectic for me! They are covering some dnb shows that will be taking place when I am in Fiji so I will miss those. They have linked to my site, my flickr photos and junglescene on their mini-site and they are also using a photo of mine on their LA DNB page.

Update Oops, I didn't realize that 1Xtra was a full blown station, not just a show.

Again, No Hassles

My future brother-in-law, Noel Proffitt, took me on a photo safari through LA. We went through Vernon, down Pacific Avenue, to Watts and then finally to the beach at Cabrillo Beach. Here are some of the HDR shots I took:

I can't use these in the Hassle Project as I wasn't hassled whilst taking them!

Getting Payola For Blogging?

So I saw a post over at digg about how to ruin blogging, and I thought, oh hell yeah count me in! So I signed up on a site called [censored] that allows business to pay bloggers to post about their products. To me this seems a whole lot like payola, but hey I am disclosing that I am advertising for what appears in this post and I am (supposedly going to be paid for it). So let me (or may payola sponsor) ask you some questions

UPDATE: Screw this! Here is what they said:

Please refer to a previous rejection message regarding your posts. Remember: 1)one post PER opportunity 2)word requirements Thank you!
It never said anything about that in the terms of service and this post made the work requirement so I'm over it!
