More Buster Keaton

Jul. 16th, 2009 | 11:14 pm

Because there can never be too much of my darling Buster

So about the clip - This is only one part of a nineteen minute short comedic flim called "The Scarcrow", released in 1920, starring (of course) Buster Keaton and Edward F. Cline. They portray two men, a farmhand and a truck driver, who compete for the love of the farmers daughter, and live together in a one room house filled with space saving Goldberg-esque contraptions.

Oh God, I have so many photos I need to scan and post online! I've had about 80 scanned snapshots on  my hard drive for over a month but haven't had a chance to post them until now. I thought this particular set would be a good place to start, considering it was a batch that I had become engrossed with for a few days. These photos come from the scrap book a couple who travel on several occasions to adopt children.

This was deffinatly one of the greatest concerts I've ever been to. My friend Sadie and I went last Thursday and had second row seats. It was amazing. Next time we see him, we've vowed to bring him flowers

I shot a few videos


You can view the other three here at
or on my YouTube Page

We also saw Regina Spektor at the Beacon Theater the night before.

Science Stories (1953)

Jun. 6th, 2009 | 06:14 pm

I came upon this wonderful pulp fiction today at a community yardsale - bought it off an adorable old man for 50 cents
It was the only good thing in his garage, but after finding it beneath a mountain of cook books I immediately knew that it would be my best purchase of the day.

Science Stories
Issue No. 1
October 1954

The condition is, well, horrible, held together with little more than two yellowing pieces of Scotch tape at the spine.
Nevertheless, what it lacks in physical stability, it makes up for in fifties pulp charm.
I've scanned the title pages and any page with an illustration
This post is very image heavy so it will be

Edward Ordóñez - Nocturne No.2 feat Gilbert Garcin Photography

May. 16th, 2009 | 11:39 pm

To the best of my knowlege, Mr. Ordóñez's music is not available for sale or download and is only posted on his YouTube acount. It's a shame because I've come to adore his compositions :(
If you also enjoy, then show your support by commenting on his videos!
If he gets enough attention, maybe he'll release an album (fingers crossed)

Also - Gilbert Garcin
Quite a refreshing change from the majority of ignorant and mediocre photographers to arise in the past twenty years.
