Rodeo Portraits featured in Cowboys and Indians magazine

Many thanks to Cowboys and Indians Magazine for featuring my Rodeo portraits in their latest issue (Feb/March 2016). These portraits were made all over the great state of Georgia from Perry up to Ringgold and many points between. It’s so gratifying to finally see some of this work in print, and writer Ellise Pierce certainly made me sound more thoughtful than is actually the case. Now, I need to get busy printing and scanning and updating the gallery with more images!

Happy Spring…

…from Ella Fitzgerald, “Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most,” a downbeat ballad on the more pernicious aspects of our season of renewal. Recommended for pessimists, the forlorn, the forgotten, and the curmudgeonly.

2013 Year in Music

I’m a bit of a music nut and I try (in vain) to keep up with the yearly avalanche of great new music. It’s an almost impossible task; it would be very challenging even if someone was paying me to do it, which, obviously, isn’t happening.

So even though what finally gets filtered through is but a tiny fraction of what’s available, I think it’s more important to find new music that connects with you and that you will want to return to as the years go by. That being said, here are some of my favorites from 2013. All links are to Spotify.

Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” was nearly inescapable in 2013, and with good reason: it is perhaps the fullest realization of Daft Punk’s artistic vision of 70s soft rock, disco and experimental mashed up with house beats, and electronica. You really need the intimacy and clarity of a good set of headphones to experience the sonic perfection of this LP. “Game of Love” might be my favorite Daft Punk jam since “Something About Us” back in 2001, and also had the sweetest bass line of the year.

Cate LeBon sings in a lovely Welsh accent, sounds like Nico meets Television’s “Marquee Moon,” and wrote my favorite song of the year, “Are You With Me Now?”


The rest of Mug Museum is just as affecting. “I Think I Knew” (with Perfume Genius) just crushes me. Read More
