Focus on the smaller things

I’m a big thinker. I like to put my mind to work pondering the big questions like the purpose of existence, how artificial intelligence will affect the future of humanity, and what is consciousness.  There are plenty of other big questions as well that relate to world politics, alien life and so on. They all […]

The Purpose of War?

Like so many of my posts, they are spurred on by outside inspiration. In this case, by a  question someone asked on social media. My response got too long to be a response anymore, so I have migrated it to it’s own post. Here is the initial question followed by what would have been my […]

Camera Choices

The following is really me thinking out loud. Sometimes it’s easier to write out my thoughts to get a better grasp on them. I’m interested in buying a new video camera. I currently own and shoot with a Canon 60D and a couple kits style lenses. Nothing fancy. I’ll more than likely just keep this 60D […]

A Photographer or Digital Artist?

When is a photographer not a photographer anymore because they digitally manipulate their images so much? It’s kind of an interesting question, one which I’ve never really thought of before. However after reading some comments on various photos, I get the impression that some people don’t consider these images to be photographs or the people […]

My Nikon FE

This is my Nikon FE. I bought this camera around the turn of the century. I don’t remember the exact year now. Maybe 1999 or 2000. That’s my best guess. Which means I’ve owned it now for 16 or 17 years.  Longer than any camera I’ve ever owned. Obviously I bought it used. It was […]

DVD Revisited

I got into DVD pretty quickly, unlike Blu-ray which took me six years after its launch to buy into it. It started with the first computer that I built. I made sure to buy a DVD-Rom drive for it because I was excited about the new movie format. This was 1998. We were aware of […]

Back to Android

  I’ve owned two Android phones in my life. The first was some HTC deal I got many years ago that had a little rollerball on the front. I owned it for about a week before realizing I could get an iPhone 3Gs. I don’t remember what the circumstances were but I jumped ship to […]

Erotic Fiction

I have a confession. I’ve been writing erotic fiction for years. I even have a website where I publish these stories. But I’m not telling you where. In fact I doubt I have any readers. It’s just a random website out there in the vast sea of the internet, but that’s ok. I do it […]

B Gata H Kei

This is an anime series that started as a manga series. One I’ve never read. But then, I don’t think I’ve ever actually sat down to read any manga. I do like anime though and Melissa and I caught this on Netflix a while back. We both thought it was pretty funny and entertaining. I’m […]
