jc brooks & the uptown sound @ kings

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the retro soul and ’60 doowop pop sound that’s making huge waves in the indie music community these days; I almost love it more than boys with beards and banjos. (It’s close, but I’m a sucker for a banjo.) But it’s hard to call what electric…

perfect vacation: eat, sleep, go to cemeteries

The Maternal Unit is also into eating, so she was totally down with my life list goal of eating all 100 foods on Our State’s 100 Foods To Eat In NC’s 100 Counties. We knocked out two together, Pickled Carolina Collards w/ Habanero Peppers from Angela’s Pepper-Pickled Foods (New Hanover County) and Conch Fritters at…

This is a blurry photo of a CD, poorly white-balanced and not quite in focus, but it’s important because under those words and that disc, it’s my photo on the inside of Wylie Hunter & the Cazadores’ upcoming full-length. One of the shots that we took at CD Alley back in January. It’s on my…

one of many

When I embarked on my self-portrait for every show I shoot project, it was out of self-preservation: I wanted a year long project that was easy, and solitary, but also gave me some challenges. It’s easy and solitary to take a picture of yourself in a bar bathroom, but it’s hard, after about 50 shots,…

baseball: bluefield o’s @ burlington royals

Thirty six. Not gonna lie: rookie league baseball is Not Good Baseball. But, hey, the Orioles won two in a row! Sure, it’s the Bluefield Orioles — but it’s a start, right? Try not to think about the big club’s bullpen while you tell yourself that.

baseball: gwinnett braves @ durham bulls, originally uploaded by minervacat. Thirty. Rain delay and all — I was given a damn good ticket and I used it to take a lot of clooooose up photos.

baseball: ny mets @ baltimore orioles

baseball: ny mets @ baltimore orioles, originally uploaded by minervacat. Twenty nine. The Orioles, man. The Orioles are not a good baseball team. The beer was tasty, though, and the company was good, and even though he’s not hitting worth crap, Matt Wieters does continue to exist, a fact that I’m pretty into. So it…

baseball: jacksonville suns @ carolina mudcats

Twenty four. Proof that I cannot work the internets correctly: I bought tickets to last night’s Mudcats game, cheerfully thinking that they were to a Mudcats game against the West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx — not, you know, the Jacksonville Suns, who take the obvious abbreviation JAX on the Southern League schedules. Luckily the Diamond Jaxx…
