via loonachic, via ypsi: Just wanted to, again, say thanks to all the awesome backers of The Ypsi Project Exhibit. Still overwhelmed that we did it! :) Well deserved!
via the Bui Brothers I love this video. I just do.
Virtual High Five
ypsi: The last 24 hours have been so crazy! We were the featured project of the day today on Kickstarter, the Ypsi Citizen featured our campaign on their site, Handmade Detroit gave us a big fat mention on their site and there has been a virtual stampede of backers. With a full 68 hours to go we only have $43 dollars left to meet our goal. I am laughing with amazement, excitement and the...
Season one, episode 17 →
This will be a hard entry to write, as I’m friends or friendly with many of those involved with The Streamy Awards. I feel that in light of last night, it’s important enough to not pull any punches for the sake of nicety though. Our community is built on dialogue, integrity, and honesty, so with…
via ypsi: Ran to Kinko’s tonight to print off a small handful of ypsiproject.com mock-up flyers. These don’t have an Exhibit date or info on them - just a domain name. But we’ll be running around to the local cafes’ and coffee houses in town and taping these up soon to help get the word out. Thanks so much to all of you who have been sharing this campaign on twitter and facebook and your...

via ypsi: We posted a video walk-through of the VG Kids space where the upcoming Ypsi Project Exhibit will be held. It was really exciting to poke around and take measurements and imagine what the three different rooms will look like when all the portraits are on the walls. This is a password protected video - but it’s one that all of our amazing Kickstarter backers can view. If you are not...
Court Rules Against Net Neutrality →
via soupsoup: Tuesday’s ruling by the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia is a big victory for the Comcast Corporation, the nation’s largest cable company. It had challenged the FCC’s authority to impose so called “net neutrality” obligations. Expect in as little as two-years-time to hear some stories surfacing of serious mob-mentality cases regarding...
We're over half way there!
via A City in Portraits : The Ypsi Project Exhibit Mike and I began the YP Exhibit campaign on Kickstarter to raise the $2,400 needed to put on a show that will showcase some of the amazing portraits that have been taken over the last year. With 17 days remaining we have raised over $1300. We’re over half way there! So many of you have shown your support not only through generous...
If an employee hires you as a full time photographer, and provides no equipment (camera body, lenses, etc)… and after a year+ of using your own personal equipment, you damage the lens while taking photos *at* work and *for* work… and then they say they won’t pay for more than half of the repair cost. 1) How messed up is that on a jerk-level? After all, they saved about $7,000 by...

via ohyeahfacts: The Goddess will conceive, and give birth in nine months. The increased growth and strength of nature in the spring is due to the rising power of the Goddess and God. (source) Earlier today, during dinner, my step-dad, James, asked me if I knew the story behind Easter (picking on me for not going to Church that morning). I answered, “because Jesus was a zombie”. I...
Last week, Erica, being awesome per usual, bought me this old Kodak 8mm Instamatic. I found some 8mm cartridges on eBay for crazy-cheap and today they showed up in the mail. Yay. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s not a broken camera.
