Crypt Creeper – Waverly Cemetery, Sydney, Australia

 On the last day of a press stop in Sydney, a friend and I woke up early to do the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk in a mad rush before our flight home. I wasn’t confident it would be a must-do; I’d seen oceans before, but the drama of cliffs jutting out of beaches, the…

SpyCam Paris – Louvre, Paris Games Week, Around the City

These pictures were taken when I was in Paris for Paris Games Week, just before the recent attacks. I debated whether to post them, but after some thought, I’ve decided to. I don’t intend this as disrespectful, or to capitalize on a tragedy that’s getting a lot of clicks. I just happened to be there,…

My (Working) E3 Survival Kit – What to Pack and Bonus What to Wear

Remember when Forbes raised eyebrows with this article about what to wear to E3? This isn’t that article. Or remember this odd one from Kotaku that encouraged pencils and starting a blog with the goal of getting to E3?  This is not that one either! This is just my notes-to-self on what I’ve brought that…

Sherlock Holmes Exhibit at Perot Museum, Dallas ( #PerotMuseum )

If I visit a museum, and I’m not allowed to take pictures of it, did I still visit a museum? I’ve been grappling with that question, and also with the question of whether it is morally wrong to sneakily take pictures anyway, for years. (Also, what is the likelihood of being caught?) In this particular…

Every Hotel Room

About a year ago, I realized that work travel was going to become a part of life for me. While it was all still new and exciting, I decided to take a photo of myself every night I was in a hotel room, for a year. I didn’t necessarily have a strong direction at the…

Anyplace Glamorous : Walking in New York, Thai Grill and Sushi

So I admit, New York actually is glamorous. The Anyplace Glamorous category was invented for places that have “found” glamour. Or maybe created. But I’m going to let this one through for some reason, just a walk in the dark that wouldn’t make it to the front of the queue if I was making real…

Festival Fashion at Forecastle Festival, Louisville KY

Festival snaps from Forecastle Festival in Louisville (Loo-a-vull) Kentucky…                                                                 That last one is me with Kayleigh Goldsworthy, who is touring with Young &…

Texas Hill Country With Dogs

When: Thanksgiving weekend, 2013. Who: Me, Thom, Meeka the eight year old dachshund, Echo the Malamute/pit bull (in her prime), Vega the giant Doberman puppy. Where we stayed: “Peace of Heaven” cabins, Vanderpool, TX – no TV, no signal on Verizon. Slow Wi-Fi available. – equipped with cooking utensils, more beds than necessary, and an…

What I Brought to Pax Prime – Makeup Bag

I have now decided to grace my blog with my presence to bring you another long-promised (though maybe not awaited) packing for Pax video. This is everything in my meant-to-be-minimalist makeup (and hair product, and etc.) bag. In the end I think I could have pared it down a little, but I didn’t ever seriously…

Pax Prime Travel- Airport Looks, Day and Night

I’m currently in Seattle for Pax Prime. I haven’t actually seen any Seattle yet, as I’m still in the airport. My flight came in last night, and I slept here. I feel remarkably better than expected today, due to a combination of finding a flat bench to sleep on and taking the time to clean…

Forgetting; Seeing

Its funny how little you can see of home until you leave it. I didn’t know that the sky was gray and heavy with 3D sculpted clouds. I didn’t know that the grass in spring was so tangibly green,  that horses would squeeze drops from it as they chewed. I didn’t know that it was…
