My Venture Into Photography

Today is my first of many blog posts on photography. I wanted to get into amateur photography so I went out and bought a fresh Sony A65 DSLR. So far there’s been no regrets. This camera has everything you could want and more. Feels so good in your hands you won’t want to set it down. It shoots great, is a decent size, and I couldnt be happier with it. It truly makes taking pictures fun.
Sony A65 out of the box

One great resource I have been using to learn everything from aperture to shutter speed is Digital Photography School. They have everything and more. Tons of resources for the beginner all thew way up to the pro. Here’s a great link to alot of good beginner information that’s helped me out: Beginner Tutorials

Here are a few shots from my A65:

Severed Limbs, Missing Flesh, and Dead Seals… Oh Yea! It’s Shark Week Baby!

The 2012 London Olympics has been a fun ride. I really enjoyed the fresh opening ceremony with Mary Poppins battling Lord Valdemort. I watched in awe as Gabby Douglas won her gold medal in gymnastics. It was awesome witnessing history when Michael Phelps broke the all-time record for Olympic medals. I caught the super cocky Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt reaffirm his status as the fastest man in the world.  I followed every detail of the Chinese Badminton scandal and I got a good laugh when that Judo fighter got kicked out for eating pot brownies – which he  claimed to have ingested unknowingly. Right.

In short the #Lympics were awesome.  Merica’ dominated and stole the show (as usual). We took home da golds and let the rest of the world know we failed P.E. cause Merica’ don’t play.

Now let us get onto more important things……such as the start of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel.

Shark Week is a special time of the year. It’s an opportunity for the different nations to put aside their differences and unify around their shared love of shark-based TV programming. Conflicts and grudges are forgotten and we reconnect with what unites us as humanity – namely the fact that we are all horrified yet fascinated by sharks.

In light of the Summer Olympics and the 25th anniversary of Shark week coming up I think it is important to shed some awareness on the people who overly vamp the world up for these events.  Below you can see the differences and quite possibly even some similarities:

Olympic Fans: Have been preparing and promoting the Summer Olympics since the last Winter Olympics.  Most likely have had Facebook invites to their homes for their friends and families to enjoy veggies together while they watch the curling session.

Shark Week Fans: Besides the people that obviously are working for the marketing team. Shark week fans have no idea when it’s going to start until at least a day and half into the week. And then they act as if they have been waiting for this week ever since…. Wait how long ago was the last shark week? Do we have one every year?

Olympic Fans: Will set their alarms and wake up at 3am just so they can watch the diving match.

Shark Week Fans:  Will watch sharks diving their teeth into people’s throats all the way up until the bar closes and then… Go to bed.  I mean I can TiVo it or rent it when it comes to DVD.

Olympic Fans: Are intellectual human beings.  They actually care about culture and geography.

Shark Week Fans: Not so much into brains as they are into their beer.  But hey, we can at least name off 3 different oceans the sharks have attacked in.

Olympic Fans: Most likely athletes or were athletes at some point or have now just figured out that working out can make you look like you are an athlete thus meaning if you watch the Olympics you will look even more like an athlete.

Shark Week Fans: Hipsters or want to be hipsters.  People who just want to seem like they’re in the ‘know’ with what’s cool these days.  Couples or friends that think it’s cool to dress as a shark and victim for Halloween.

Olympic Fans: Care about team work, playing fair, and dominating China every opportunity they get.

Shark Week Fans: Don’t currr as long as a shark sinks its teeth into some fresh meat.

Ok, so maybe the simularities were a long shot.  What we can conclude with is that the Olympics fans are good wholesome people who care about the world USA dominating the world, and Shark week viewers just want to see more people die in the ocean…

Honey Badger Don’t Care……… To Play At LSU

Months after proclaiming he was changed, humbled and ready to lead, Honey Badger’s selfishness cost him his LSU career, as Les Miles announced his dismissal at a news conference Friday. LSU dismissed 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist  for violating school and team rules. Mathieu was suspended last year for one game for reportedly using synthetic marijuana but LSU never confirmed the specific reason of the suspension. HB let his team and a fan base down by once again thinking of himself first.

Below you can see how the LSU fans are holding up after hearing their beloved honey badger getting kicked off of LSU. Here’s reactions from the infamous Tigerdroppings forum. Enjoy.

LSU Fan Reactions:


“This is not happening, this is not happening, this is not happening”

“I’M FREAKIN’ OUT MAN!!!!”

“Mathieu is a fool”  -Michael Dyer

“Who wears the #7 now? maybe Landon Col…… nevermind!”

“Jeepers, I hope that all the academic credits earned by this fine young student/athlete will transfer so that his educational goals remain on track lolz”

“Why? There is a pattern here. Les should be used to players doing whatever they want”

“TM7 transfers to Penn State”

“I made the cutest Honey Badger dress last season and it’s useless now”

“We just cant have nice things”

“This sucks, can someone bring me a gallon of crown and keep me company?”

“I’m jumping out my window. it’s not worth it anymore”

“hes like our own ricky williams”

“honey badger really doesn’t give a shite”

“Well look on the bright side, at least we’re not Penn St.”

“FOR SALE: Honey Badger takes what he wants. T shirt. Cheap”

“#FreeHoneyBadger”

“Smokers gonna smoke”

“I blame Lane Kiffen. He definitely had something to do with this.”

“Popeye needs his spinach yo”

“Frick drug testing 20 year olds for weed. Weed never hurt anyone. If their was drug testing in 70’s. No one would of played.”“It hurt TM!!! But you are right not doing illegal drugs is a bit much to ask of people”

“My un follow button is going ham”

“Anyone know if it’s too late to get any penn state dbs?”

“It’s like the National Championship all over again”

Here’s a fresh YouTube video I found summarizing life as honey badger.

It is true the honey badger don’t care and takes what he wants, with the exception of staying on the LSU football team and winning National titles.

Stay Apple fresh my friends!

All good things must come to an end

Today I flipped on the internet and found out some not so fresh news. Apple’s new OS, Mountain Lion, won’t be supported on the ol trusty black Macbook of mine.

Here’s the list of unsupported Macs for Mountain Lion:

Any Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook from late 2007 – late 2008 (Model Numbers: MB061*/B, MB062*/B, MB063*/B, MB402*/A MB403*/A MB404*/A, MB402*/B)
• The Mid-2007 Mac mini (Model Numbers: MB138*/A, MB139*/A)
• Late 2006 polycarbonate iMac (Model Number: MA710xx/A)
• The original early 2008 MacBook Air (Model Number: MB003LL/A)

If you want to check your Mac and see if it’ll place nice with Mountain Lion click on the Apple at the top left and select “About This Mac”. On the screen that comes up, click “More Info”, then look under the hardware section.

It’s been a good ride I’ve had her since 2008 lasting me through college and then some but I hate to see her go. On the bright side it looks like I now have an excuse to get a new Mac

Ahhhh, the things girls say

I ran across this awesome video today, it pretty much sums up my FF (fresh fiancé). So my fiancé might look a little lot less masculine but this could totally be her.

For those of you not intimately involved in my life I am engaged to pretty much the girliest girl alive (check out her blog). I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard these exact words come out of her mouth.

My favorite one I get daily from FF is, “What’s wrong with my computer?”  Me, “I don’t know, honey; maybe it’s the 600 Pinterest pins you’ve clicked today or the 38 tabs you have open in Google Chrome.”

Anyone who has a girlfriend/wifey can definitely relate to this:
