How long is time

I'm a blank image because this stupid WP layout is stupid and makes an ugly forced image if I'm not here

The latest Perpetual Edge Case (a newsletter from the genius brain of R. Stevens) had, as usual, a couple good points.

I like Tumblr and Twitter and all, but you’ll pry my website from my cold, dead pizza cutter prosthesis. No corporate platform is going to keep your stuff up out of nostalgia. Host it yourself or go the way of Geocities.

And I felt bad for my little abandoned blog. And my other abandoned blog. And then I missed RSS. But fuck it, whatever, right? I’ve been posting into the void forever, time to get back at it. Let’s take baby steps.

When we last left our intrepid hero, they were about to go and take pictures for practically 24 hours straight. Sure, it ended up being more like 22, because at 30 you need a little sleep, but hey. There are two Flickr sets, one of the “real” photos and one of assorted bits and snapshots and Instagrams.

It was a great experience and proved that both Chase and I are pretty much made for road projects. Although creatively light overall, 2013 was a good year at reminding me that I do take pictures and not just Instagrams. Though oh man do I take some Instagrams. No shame, though, because documenting with images is how I remember things and that’s how it has been forever.

I got to experience and do and try a lot of stuff in 2013. It can be strange, living with someone with a clear artistic drive and goals, because I tend to just make things to make them. But I might be finding a common thread in all the junk I do and shoot, so that is good.

Anyway, time keeps on marching, even if I decide to sleep until 1:30p on my first “Saturday” of the new year (well, the first of the year was also on my weekend, but doesn’t count). This year might be good, guys. Let’s keep making shit happen.


What I did:
1. For the price of taking Chase to dinner once a month, I can go to the gym every dang day instead (but probs 3x a week).,
