Kiss this

Wonder Woman tells me that these things are called Kissing Balls. Yesterday, I took this picture of one that is still hanging in our backyard … just before I started shoveling … again. So far this winter, we’ve gotten approximately 3,119 inches of snow. Which reminds me: Mother Nature, if you’re reading this, I have some balls for you to kiss.… [read the rest]

F**K THIS!

Actually, it’s been about 33 years, so I can’t be sure that’s what I was saying here … but it sure looks like it, no? The main thing that comes to mind when I think about going out in the snow as a child is how god-awfully cumbersome it was to try to move around in all that gear. I get exhausted just thinking about it … which is why I’m guessing this is a picture of me launching my body down a hill and over a log because I was tired of trying to actually walk through the snow… [read the rest]

Blast off

OK, this is the last NIN picture that I’ll force-feed you in Photo of the Day, but I couldn’t resist putting it up. Like most of the NIN pics I shot, it’s not super-high quality … but, dude: he’s airborne. I had no idea when I took this shot that I had captured Trent launching himself skyward; I was just snapping like a madman and hoping to end up with something salvageable. I think I took almost 250 photos, and boiled it down to just over 40. This is what happens when a concert reviewer pretends to be a concert… [read the rest]

Ghosts

Yes, this one’s even foggier and grainier than its predecessor … but I like the vibe. Nine Inch Nails fans will recognize Trent Reznor’s unmistakeable silhouette (he’s the guy choking the microphone to death), and that gentlemen with the guitar right there, that’s Robin Finck. The sides of his head are shaved except for two little tufts that hang from his temples, he has a dreadlocked mohawk, and his presence, guitar playing and demonic backing vocals add an element to the live NIN experience that just can’t be replaced—which is probably why Trent brought him back for this tour after… [read the rest]

NIN

The last time Mr. Trent Reznor and his Nine Inch Nails came to town, I had to miss the show so that Wonder Woman and I could take Zan to see the Wiggles. Thankfully, the big “Playhouse Disney Live” excursion took place a couple of days before last night’s NIN show. I got hooked up with tickets and a photo pass, the latter of which allowed me to spend three songs leaning against the stage, snapping pictures of Trent and the boys … which was way cool, of course … but the quality of the photos is mostly subpar because… [read the rest]
