The Sun is Back

The Sun is back on my ride home. And I think I'm getting a Sun tatoo on Sunday. This was taken w/ the new DSLR that I'm getting. Yummy beast.

Here's Come The Conservative Liars

So Citizens United made a film bashing Hilary earlier last year, and now they are making one about Obama. This is from NYTimes.

Here's a quote:
“Obama is a completely clean slate,” said David Bossie, president of the group. “We will develop the image that we want the people to see. We’re doing the hard work of the research right now. The American people don’t know much about Obama, except that they like his speaking style.”

Wait a minute here, does anyone else see the logical fallacy from above? How can you 'develop and image that we want people to see' AND do 'the hard work of the research right now.' Isn't it supposed to be the research that tells you what image a person IS in actuality, rather than what you want people to see? Assholes. Oh yeah, and Anne Coulter is a great person to believe their opinions about people. You should see some of the shit she's said Link1 Link2.

Henry Cowell Redwoods

So we've been having lots of stormy weather this January. It's been awesome because we need the rain, and its not like having weather really is that bad here, you know sun is around the corner.

Matt and I went up to Henry Cowell Redwoods this weekend right as the weather was breaking up. So we got these great kinda dark/kinda sunny pictures this weekend. I find that HDR works fairly well in these situations as long as you don't spread the range out TOO much. I really like that the Gimp allows me to manipulate each layer of the HDR image, but it only has 3 picture inputs which totally blows. So I will take a composite of 5 pictures, and make 4 HDR images out of it and see which one I like the best, and I've also tried combining the HDRs into another HDR. That has some interesting results. Blah blah, anyway.

Goddess Quote

"I lay in bed for several minutes after awakening and admired her body: turned away from me, the classic curve of the back and hip and flank offering a geometry more beautiful and powerful than anything discovered by Euclid, the two dimples visible on the lower back, just above the heart-stopping widening of milk-white derriere, soft angles intersecting, the backs of full thighs somehow more sensual and solid than any aspect of male anatomy could hope to be."

-Dan Simmon's Hyperion
