Film. 
These six rolls have been accumulating this past year in various in nooks of my life. Purse. Other purse. Window sill. Whicker-basket-under-the-table-that-has-no-chair.
I use to develop a roll as soon as it was ready. My Dodge’s cup holder would serve as a brief holding place so that my commute didn’t stand a chance avoiding National Camera Exchange. 
As these six rolls collected on the table, I couldn’t help but see this as a symbol; life has gotten too busy. 
Life has been expanding into all sorts of exciting territories lately. And I don’t mind that. But at what point did it start pushing certain important things aside? I’ve been treating this passion of mine like that plant you forget to water on top of your fridge. 
Staring at these six little guys gave me a wake up call. 
It’s so important to keep the things that feed your expression and bring you joy front and center - as much as possible. Time to bring the forgotten-fridge-plant back to light and nurture it. That’s the only way we grow after all.  
Cheers,
- J

I’m always down for a new cover, and I’m really loving this one by Chvrches. Getting every word on point in this particular Whitney track can be difficult, but they seem to get through it without a hitch.

Normally I’m not big on putting two belters on one song, especially something with this much emotion. But the musicality and vocal talent on this track sends shivers down my spine. And man, Nate Ruess, can hit those high notes.

Who’s excited for the new season of ‘The Voice’? This gal! And after watching this clip, I’m pretty excited to have Shakira as one of the mentors! She’ll definitely give these guys a run for their money. 

Not to sound like the Grinch, but Christmas music is just not my bag. But there are a few (actually 5) songs that I can get into, and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is on that list. This makeover makes it even better. 

But if it’s not your thing, there’s always the Love Actually version.

Yes, please and thank you… GQ.

Jimmy Kimmel is obviously taking the piss, but the book I’m reading on the sociological evolution of hipsters actually talks about some of these things. And yes there are academic studies on hipsters. 

Lisa Frank is back?!? Brings me back to primary school and my trapper keeper. It’s on sale now at Urban Outfitters.

Seeing the world in F 5.6

I took a lighting seminar a few years back, and my teacher pointed out that I just naturally shoot at F 5.6. I never thought about it before until I went back to Adobe Bridge. Anywho, here’s a quick (and fun) little shoot I did with my friend, Alex.
