MY IPHONE SHOT OF THE WEEK - “AIN’T NOTHIN’ BUT A THING”
From a technical standpoint this probably wasn’t my best shot, but it’s nonetheless my favorite, here’s why…
1. I like the “can do” attitude of whoever owns this car. I like to think that this person walked out to his car one morning, saw someone had crashed into it, and instead of throwing a fit, he simply said to himself “ain’t nothin’ but a thing baby, ain’t nothin’ but a thing”. He walked back in his house, grabbed some duct tape, patched up the damage, and continued on his merry way to buy some fish food.
2. I like how the license plate says “ERB”. My grandpa’s name was Herb and it made me think of him for the first time in a while. Grandpa Herb was a rather fantastic fellow.
Finally, here’s a photo from back in the day of my Mom and Grandpa Herb relaxin’ in our back yard (I’m particular fond of my mom’s wardrobe selection)…

FLASHBACK FRIDAY 11 - “TANNER AND VICKI EDIT A STUDENT FILM”
My friend Nick took this polaroid of Vicki and I pulling an all-night editing session on one of our student films way back when (way back when I was thin and in-shape, that is). I believe the student film in question is called Platform. It dealt with the heavy issues of relationships and cloning. Several red jumpsuits were involved, it was pretty awesome.
That being said, all-night editing sessions can be quite rough. The lack of sleep combined with the realization that you forgot to record any freaking audio can take a heavy toll on one’s mind and body. A good example of what I’m talking about can be seen in the polaroid pictured above. If you look closely you will see that Vicki’s face looks absolutely terrible. Also, she appears to have gone a bit mad, and as such it looks like I’m probably doing all the work while she points maniacally at one of her missing teeth.
