Both Ends of a Gun
Is a recording produced for RPM Challenge, the first event of its type. Based on the models of National Novel Writing Month and National Album Writing Month, the RPM (Record Production Month) Challenge asked bands and musicians from the Portsmouth, NH, music scene to write and record all the material for a 10-song or 25-minute album within the single month of February. This CD was my contribution to the project; it consists of songs built around two iconic American couples, Bonnie and Clyde, and Annie Oakley and Frank Butler. Submissions ran the gamut from highly produced, layered, professional studio work to humble kitchen-counter efforts like my own. The project, spearheaded by the local arts and culture paper, The Wire, galvanized the local music scene and forged connections between musicians both within and across genres. It's been a boon to the music community, and the model should definitely be emulated. The Portsmouth group is now throwing down the gauntlet by issuing the challenge to Northampton, MA, Portland, ME, and the entire State of Vermont.

Student of Fortune
This is a questions and answers site I've been helping a friend with that operates via a monetary bounty system. The site allows you to set fixed or negotiable prices on your questions, and then choose to buy responses from different answerers based on their rating, answer length, and a random sample block of text. While specifically targeted at the college set the site is useful for general purpose information exchange with a bounty regardless of how trivial or involved the question at hand is.

Faces of the Fallen (
Faces of the Fallen is a browsable database of U.S. service members who've died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Django-powered, the site lets you browse by age, death date, home state and city, military branch or multiple search criteria. Each soldier gets his or her own page, as does each date, American city, age, military branch, etc. There's an RSS feed for recent casualties, a feed for each state and a feed for each military branch. We've integrated Google Maps on several pages to highlight service members' hometowns.

Baby Roadies: A repository for Dads who are trying to stay cool.
A friend of mine and I are soon to become fathers (with the help of our respective wives) and we noticed that there are an abundance of websites for Moms out there, but very few (non-creepy) sites for Dads. Not the Dockers-wearing "Father Of The Year" dads, but just regular guys who like loud rock music and beer in a can, and are trying to be decent fathers. There is also a forum Here if any Dads out there have advice or just a good story.

One piece of paper.
It was an experiment to see how long it could last. Draw a comic, rub it off, and draw another over the top. Once it had finished, a second experiment was started on another piece of paper. Current data - one piece of paper can survive an average of 65 cartoons being drawn on it

The Misc File
I've decided to launch my own version of Paul Graham's essay page ( So far I have what I think is an interesting string of emails with Richard Stallman on the ethics of software. Upcoming entries may include "Why I wouldn't buy Facebook for $750 million" or "Why being an untenured professor sucks so much".

The Eddie Adams Workshop.
Eddie Adams passed away in September of 2004, but his legacy as a great photojournalist lives on through the Eddie Adams Workshop, an intense four day gathering of 150 of some of the best professional photojournalists, and 100 chosen newcomers to the world of photojournalism. The Workshop is tuition-free, and the 100 students are chosen based on the merit of their portfolios. 2006 will mark the 19th year of the Eddie Adams Workshop. A number of my co-workers here at PhotoShelter are alums of the workshop - we recently launched a new community site for EAW - allowing members to show off the best of their portfolios, communicate with one another, and to allow the thousands of prospective students that apply each year an online mechanism to send their portfolios to judges digitally. Please check it out - there are thousands of great photos in the alumni (full listing) section - and plenty more about the workshop around the site.

Montreal Expo 1967, through the eyes of Lillian Seymour
I found these photos on the street in Cambridge, MA. They were originally glued onto scrapbook sheets like this. I've scanned, tagged, and uploaded them all to flickr, for your pleasure. To the best of my knowledge, these photos were taken by Lillian Seymour.

Doctor Negative's Photography site
New pictures from 2 photo classes I took in the last year in Death Valley and Pt. Reyes. There will be more new stuff coming. Mostly I'm looking for constructive criticism or feedback (or snarky commentary on my apparent inability to operate a camera correctly, whatever).

My Dinner With Jack.
Three years ago, I had dinner with now the now infamous lobbyist Jack Abramoff (really). I sat down at his now infamous restaurant Signatures, he told me and amazing and wildly improbable story about how he made Red Scorpion and I never heard from him again. While this evening eventually earned me a place in the Washington, D.C. Cocktail Story Hall of Fame, I never got around to writing it up. Until now. It’s the cover story in the April 3 Weekly Standard. Please check it out. Trust me, it's a fun story, regardless of your political persuasion. Thanks.

Motion Graphics Demo Reel '06 (embedded .mov)
I'm a motion graphics student at the Savannah College of Art and Design, getting ready to graduate. This is a demo reel of my work, mostly from the past two years, some older. More work is viewable on the rest of the site. Hopefully this will be of some interest to you guys and gals, I don't see much motion work posted around these parts.

Docvert - not yet a verb
This is some web service software I've been working on to change MSWord to HTML or any XML. It's open source, cross-platform, and uses W3C standards for conversion. You can write your own themes and control everything down to the tag and attribute, so feel free to continue being an html nazi. The last release was back in september and this is all the work since then.

List of Free iTunes Singles via RSS
On occasion, the Free Single of the Week from the iTunes Music Store US appeals to me, but often it doesn't. It was a hassle to go through the music store interface to find out what the free downloads were, so I started this blog to provide an easier way to find out what iTunes songs are free each week. Subscribe to the feeds and wait for the songs you want to download in your RSS reader.
