Watch this interview from the Daily Show

To those who want to understand....

Please, watch this interview from the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He interviews Elizabeth Warren who is the chairwoman of the Congressional Oversight Panel on TARP. I know that a lot of this may seem confusing but I cannot stress enough how important it is that we understand what is going on right now.

Frontier Photographer - II

Date: 5/24/00

I picked up an interesting book at the annual book fair today: "The Prophet," by Kahlil Gibran. Back in college, poetry classes and I didn't get along... I remember the professor pulling me aside, "I should have failed you" she told me. I guess I was able to charm my way through. I miss those days. But back to the book...

"Your hearts know in silence the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sound of your heart's knowledge.
Say not, 'I have found the truth,' but rather, "I have found a truth.'
Say not, 'I have found the path of the soul." Say rather, "I have met the
soul walking upon my path."
For the soul walks upon all paths."

I grabbed my old OM-1 and took a walk with it last night; had to get out of the house and figured I could snap some photos with old film I had laying around. When I was in the darkroom today, I couldn't help but feel like I was being watched. I gotta get that out of my head...I swear my mind plays these stupid tricks on me....strange though, the last photo came out different. Must be a light leak or something.

Photos taken last night:

If that's a light leak why did the other photos come out fine? I need to investigate this further...

Date: Unknown (Date has been scratched off)

I sometimes looked back at my old scribbles...ideas, is what I used to call
them back then, but things changed. Damn it, I feel like I'm forcing myself to type sometimes...i don't
want to and, i don't know
what to, merge with one another and really make it
hard for me to
put my thoughts on paper.

...i had the dream again...

dream? fucking nightmare more like it, its been reoccurring for so
long I can't help but start
believing its a memory...

its strange...sometimes i dream in photographs, but lately the same image has been popping into my head every night. where am i? what's causing that light? and who is that person?

Respectfully yours,
The Frontier Photographer

So what's new Serg? does it feel good to be back.

And what better way to welcome in the New Year in State College, then with 16 degree weather1. The cold isn't that bad; and there is just enough snow to create ghosty snow people.
Footprints on the sands of time are not made by sitting down." Some proverb found on the Internet....Hmmm, lets add another one: "They might have something against you if the shoe print matches to the one
at the crime scene, but if you wore socks, then theres a good chance you can get away.
So there is exciting new stuff for the new year; one of which is the airing of the Western State Penitentiary episode of Paranormal State. This is an episode produced by Ryan and directed by Chad. And with proud admiration, I would like to partake in everyone's excitement and offer, for viewing pleasure, some of the photos that I took during the investigation. ------------------------------------------------------------ With that, I would also like to upgrade Serg. It's time I install some updates. For those new resolutioners out there...are you having an easy time right now? Its gonna get harder, but it will be worth it. I was thinking of changing and redesigning the blog for starters. New Year means, new ideas.
1. Wiki: When the temperature falls below -10 C(14.0 F), snow will squeak when walked upon due to the crushing of the ice crystals within the snow. If covered by a layer of freezing rain, the hardened frozen surface acts to echo sounds, similar to concrete.
******* The photo on the <------- was created by merging two sperate photos by that of....train. It's a rather unique process from the Industrial age. I printed out two photos I took and took them to train yard and laid them on top of the track, one over the other. A few minutes turned to a few hours and in as little as 9 hours I got this photo after the train passed over them. It's funny, I recall taking several photos of that chapel, inside that penitentiary. Tomorrow I will delight Flickr with some uploads.
