Three of my photos were selected by a Rockaway Artists Alliance jury for their biggest show of the year: "Artsplash 2014" out in beautiful Fort Tilden, in the (recently trendy) Rockaways. The show runs weekends through October 19, check it out! I'll be covering the show on Saturday September 27 if you stop by, please say hello. More info including directions, etc here.
I've entered a photo series of my friends, the great all-female Mötley Crüe cover band Girls Girls Girls, in PDN's "Ultimate Music Moment" photo contest. There's a "Peoples' Choice" category, and I'd appreciate it if you could take a few seconds and vote for me! Just follow this link, and if you like this photo (shown below) please vote for it (they do require an email). I have several others in the series here.
A very funny commercial from Brother label printers that is all about show control. They didn't get all the technical details quite right, but all of us who work backstage in show biz can identify with this technician:
Rick Springfield was scheduled to play the Fallon County Fair in Montana on August 16, but his gear was damaged by a storm and he was not able to perform.
At least (apparently) no one was hurt:
(Facebook post embedded above, if that doesn't work try this link).
Oh and there were no reports of tornadoes yesterday in Montana on the 16th, but this certainly was a strong storm, and the SPC shows a report of a wedding tent blown down, also in Fallon, MT (blue dot up by Montana/ND/SD border).
There have been so many of these events that I have a whole category of posts here.
