Footsteps, originally uploaded by Jonathon Brown.

7s and I went and caught Rocky last night. I went with pretty low expectations. I love going to movies with low expectations because then you can leave and say

"Wow! That was great!"

Which is what I said when we left the theater. It was good, the script, I thought, was great. And the cinematography was really beautiful. Okay, there were a couple of corndog moments (specifically with the photography.... a couple of gratuitous slow-mo moments; a couple of gratuitous rack focus), but c'mon: corndog? Meet thy mother. :)

PLUS it started with the "take it back" song, which won a place in my heart when I was only 10. And when things win a place in your heart when you are 10, they are a part of yer heart forever.



i swear to god...

him (on the phone): we met on flickr.
other person: bah bah bah bah bah (can't hear what they are saying)
him: no no. FFFFlickr. NOT Lickr.

a little wisdom

[ zeldman ] What advice, if any, would you offer to all the self-publishers and would-be self-publishers out there?

[ leslie harpold ] Do it for fun, and most of all do something you personally care about. Most of all do it. Find your voice and then say something. The one cautionary statement I'd issue is do make sure you have something to say. I think everyone does, but I often see people confusing talking with having something to say. Once you figure out what that is, say it loud and say it well.
Publishing something you think people want is how things get homogeneous and boring. Don't be afraid to shake things up a bit.

Relish the fact that your gifts for love are so abundant.

Prove that you really believe beauty comes from within by believing that you're beautiful. Act beautiful. You always have, so I know you can.
