Vatican City - Rome 2012

Art and Architecture fuse with beautiful prose at the Vatican City.  It was difficult to pick my favorite pictures here, as the visual subject matter is so riveting.  All the tourists go to the Sistine Chapel, but there are endless other smaller details rich in color and history waiting around every corner.

Secret Swing Spot - Hawaii 2011
Have a swing on the beach on the North Shore of Oahu.  If only all of this were in the backyard.  Waimea Beach is just around the corner from here.

Scion IQ - Ventura 2014

The Wife’s DD, this 2012 Scion IQ is the epitome of the eco-tuner.  Great handling and great MPG!  Don’t forget the Megan Racing coilover kit and some Magenta Glitter wheels to top the package off.

Databot - Ventura 2010
All your base are belong to him! Databot has a really slow-ass USB port sticking out his butt.  His eyes glow when you insert your data.

Grocery Store Oddities -  Shanghai 2010

As for the Sushi, convenient, but also wasteful.  Grab and go, one at a time!  Tesco, a grocery chain in China, had all sorts of strange treats.  I couldn’t pass this photo op up, for you would never see something like this in America.  As for The jew’s ear juice, I remain flabbergasted, but I hear its a medicinal drink based off of mushroom.

No Room for Mistakes - New York 2010
Narrow is an understatement.  You can barely stand or turnaround in the men’s room at The Library, a uptown bar in Manhattan.  As you can see, there isn’t even space for toilet paper.  Lucky me, I only had to go number 1; which is good, since there was no door either.

Jay Z @ Carnegie Hall - New York 2012
I had the amazing opportunity to play VJ to Jay-Z at the Legendary “Hey Look Ma..” venue, Carnegie Hall.  We had 8 hours to warp and projection map the the entire proscenium and back wall with 12x Barco 20k projectors.  With the lovely Local 1 stagehands.  The content was all made by Moment Factory and the Playback system was 6x Coolux Media Server Pro computers.  Coolux Widget Designer and the MIDI OHM Livid controller with its multi-colored buttons and wooden crossfader proved a great control surface.  I was all about my strobe button as usual.
