An evening in Paris from the Pompidou Center

Image Description
They lit up the Eiffel Tower with sparkly lights, it was really nice. I was there for the William Klein photo exhibition...
If you want to really photo-nerd out, you gotta get this DVD about photojournalists called: CONTACTS Vol. 1
It totally rules. Perhaps you can NetFlix it? (I just checked, you can. Just type in "Contacts")

Here is a shot from earlier the same evening... these are totally shitty digi-cam shots, so give me a break!

I went to the beach today...

...where they were having this Paintball tournament. They have Paintball pros, just like skating or BMX. I heard a guy talking to his friend; "I'll see you in Vegas, I'm not going to Tampa..." These guys travel around the world doing these competitions! They are part of "Teams." one of them was called "Extreme something..." and one was called "Trouble." The people who came to watch looked pretty sketchy. I know that sounds lame, but I have been to surf contests and skate contests down there, and the crowd is very different. There was even Paintball "Betty's" for lack of a better word, that were in skimpy clothes and covered in splattered greasy paint from paintballs all over their cleavage and thighs. I was wondering if this was a Paintballers' dream to have paintball splattered women hurling themselves at their feet? They would get their bodies signed by the Paintballers. There was a booth there that was called "Paintball Pin-ups" and featured posters of hot models outfitted in the most ridiculous bathing suits, and then with goggles and holding a paintball gun. One company hired a stretch limo Hummer, and they placed their logos all over it with magnets to make it look like they really owned and rolled in a yellow Hummer limo. The driver was sleeping in the front seat. I saw Pancho Moler at the "Monster extreme" drink booth. I can't really remember what the name was, but it was some kind of Extreme beverage. There was an energy drink company called "Bawls." It is like a paintball themed RedBull. They hired girls who were also scantily clad and outfitted with tattoos just above their rear ends who yelled out, "Pick up some free Bawls! Touch your Bawls right here!"
I'm just saying it was weird.

Here is a photo for you to look at. It is a detail of this wooden head I painted.
Use it to clear your memory of the above paragraph...

Go see V for Vendetta...

Image Description
The Obvious parallels between the movies' story and present day America are hard to miss.
I think it is important to take this movie as a waring sign in movie form. A form that today's youth can manage.
I never see kids at the skatepark reading newspapers if you know what I mean. There is a strong suggestion in the movie about the 9/11 terroist attacks on the World trade Center in NYC...
In the movie a horrific "act of terrorism" was blamed on innocent people who were labeled terroists and executed, when in fact it was the very government of the country that did this act on its own people, to stir up fear, and take away civil liberties. The similarities between 9/11, Saddam, and the patriot act are brutal. Go see it, think about it with what is going on today here in the USA, then register to vote.

Skateboard Photography Exhibition in Norway!

If you are living in Scandinavia or northern Europe, lets say, Germany, Denmark, Holland, Belgium, or are planning a trip north into Scandinavia then stop by Norway to see this big museum show! I think there might be a big skatepark nearby PLUS you can see the worlds biggest skatepark which is somewhere in Sweden. Here is a link to the Museum: I WANT TO SEE IT. They don.t have an English version or their website, so you will just have to be content with reading the names of the people in it.
