Something New

31 07 2009

So a couple of weekends ago I had a chance to do a photoshoot of a local up-and-coming musician.  This kid is really talented.  It certainly wasn’t the best lighting, as the sun was going down, and we were an hour behind schedule.  I also didn’t have all the equipment I needed as my second shooter bailed on me at the last minute.  Despite all that, we had a fun session.  It’s on YouTube since WordPress won’t let me post it here without taking more of my money, but take a look and let me know what you think!   🙂

An Interesting Interview…

22 07 2009

I recently interviewed a friend that after 10 years of retirement, he went to Wal-Mart to supplement his income, especially with this economy. Here’s what he had to say….

“So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day…… About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

As I had been instructed, I said pleasantly, ‘Good morning and welcome to Wal-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?’ The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, ‘Hell no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just stupid?’ So I replied, ‘I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wal-Mart.’ My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work.”
