Just some video from last night’s win.
Be advised, it’s loud. It’s right off my Galaxy Nexus, and has not been edited.
Hello from Section 105!
Kings come from behind and score two goals in 22 seconds in the waning moments of the 3rd period to beat the Sharks 4-3. Kings are now 2-0 in the series.
Absolutely incredible. The Sharks’ third goal was pretty deflating. Kopi went down after a puck shot by Dustin Brown hit him in the face, and the Stapler got pretty quiet. About 10 minutes later, though, Kopi was back out on the ice, and the place was rocking.
Then the two power plays: Top Titty Toff was tripped up, then not much later, a Sharks player got a Delay of Game - Puck Over Glass penalty, so the Kings had a 5-on-3 advantage. Kings scored on the first power play, and the place got super loud. Everyone was on their feet, cheering because the Kings looked like they were going to force OT. Then, Lewy put away a huge rebound after Niemi stopped Top Titty Toff’s shot, and the Stapler erupted.
This is why I love hockey.
Hello from Section 108! Go Kings Go!
Great 2-0 win tonight.
This past Saturday, I made the trek out to Arcadia to attend the Infotakus 1 Year Anniversary gathering after being invited by Tomoyo of Tomoyo-Chan Cosplay. Since it was a little over 40 miles ride for me, plus not heading out until after I got off work, I didn’t get there until after 1700.
It worked out pretty well, though. I made a couple new friends and shot some pretty good photos.
This individual is pleased.
I’m a bit of a gearwhore. And because I choose to live life on a motorcycle, I don’t have the luxury of the boot of a car to transport a metric tonne of photography equipment.
Two months ago, Chrome came out with their Niko Pro Camera Bag and since I was in the market for a new camera bag, I picked it up. It’s not perfect, but it’s the best photo bag I’ve owned.
The bag fits my 7D, two lenses, two 580EX II speedlites, and my Phottix remote triggers fairly comfortably, as well as my CF cards, spare Galaxy Nexus battery, chargers, cables, Blackrapid camera sling, and other stuff.
My OSOE Combat Cock is attached to my left shoulder to look funny and also holds my business cards.
I’m looking for a lightweight, folding light stand that I can attach to the adjustable straps on the front, and a collapsing softbox that I can strap to the side of the pack (been looking at the Cheetahstand QBox 24).
Like I had mentioned, the pack isn’t perfect. I wish it were maybe 1.5” / 2” wider. The top zip storage space is a little shallow and doesn’t offer any organization (just one mesh slot) so my stuff is just tossed in there. PALS webbing on the sides of the pack would be fantastic. Also, a bit of retroreflective material somewhere on the exterior would have been nice as well. Other than that, it’s a very nice pack.
That’s enough text for now.
A couple weeks ago I took on my first product photography assignment. It was very difficult and took a lot longer than I had expected, but it was a lot of fun and I learned quite a bit.
These photos were taken for DangerWerx, an airsoft custom parts house, and you can check him out at http://www.DangerWerx.com
There were more shots, but out of the photos I had to take, I really liked these three.
These are the jokey photos I shot on Wondercon’s final day. If you saw or heard a loud group of guys in Russian gear yelling in Russian that Sunday, looking for Jesus “to put him back in ground” these are those guys.
I believe a total of three Jesuses were found that day.
Apart from the jokey photos I shot with my friends in The Regiment (if you heard a bunch of people yelling in Russian on Sunday looking for Jesus, that was them), these are really the only photos I shot at Wondercon’s last day. I ended up shooting no photos yesterday.
The mojo just wasn’t there for me until the end of the con. Oh well, these things happen.
You can find the jokey photos in my next post.
I didn’t shoot many photos at Wondercon so I should be able to post what I did shoot very shortly.
For now, I’ll post this photo. This is my friend and former coworker Johann. I shot this as we were leaving Wondercon earlier this evening, shortly after his face was dunked into the dirty fountain in front of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Remember that weird drink in the mid-1990s that had those floating balls in them?
Remember the potion drink that Suntory released to help promote Final Fantasy XII in 2006?
Well, in this episode, filmed mid-February 2013, we drink these old drinks and let you know how they taste, expiration dates be damned! Eddie bought a couple bottles of Orbitz off eBay and I’ve had a pair of Final Fantasy XII Premium potions sitting in my closet since buying them at Anime Expo in 2006.
It’s all terrible, and that’s why we do it.
I’ve got a new project coming up. I’m not going to say exactly what it is, but I’ll say that it continues the same series as the above video, which was part two in a series.
I can’t post two YouTube videos in the same post, so this is the original in the series if anyone is interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s48lSwGYl4
I’ve been pretty obsessed over this game for the past two months. I spend almost one full day off a week at Round 1 just playing this damn game.
About a month ago, my cousin was in town from Hawaii for a baseball tournament. I shot photos for the Hawaii Bombers, the team my nephew plays for. I sat on the photos for a while, but I finally got around to editing the photos.

I’m falling a little behind on editing. My cousin from Hawaii was in town for two weeks because the baseball team one of his kids is on was attending a tournament. I shot photos at one of their games and it turned out great. I haven’t done much apart from uploading to my Mac Pro / Aperture. I should get on it soon, it’s been over a week.
I bought the new Google Nexus 7 tablet recently to use as an eReader and to be able to read photography books in full color. This thing is pretty wicked.
I knew this would happen, though… My eReader is now also a $200 SNES. I paired a Dualshock 3 controller to it. Oops. PRODUCTIVITY = 0
