18 Mar

David Axelrod is a genuine idiot.

Moody Eye View

“I find it cool to be an Obama supporter. Having sat with him for two years is the White House and watched him — watching him work through some very difficult things with a lot of intelligence and grace, equilibrium. I, I have great admiration for him,” Obama’s chief campaign strategist told CNN.

“The people who were participating in the campaign in 2008 weren’t involved n some sort of cult of personality. It wasn’t just about Barack Obama, it was the country and they cared deeply about this country,” Axelrod said in his answer a question about how to make Obama “cool” again.

Sometimes it pays to play the tourist.

While enjoying our first summer vacation in Utah (after over a decade hanging out in Ouray), Anne and I spent one late August afternoon walking around downtown Moab, checking out the bookstore and paying far too much for tarted-up club sandwiches in a main street eatery.

Mostly to escape the broiling sun for a spell, we ducked into the Chamber of Commerce. While Anne was visiting the restroom, I had a chat with the nice lady behind the counter and mentioned we were heading out to Arches National Park that evening for some sunset shots.

She offered up a list of likely locales that would be exceptional for sunset photography, one of which struck a chord with me strictly on the basis of its name: The Fiery Furnace.

Strangely, the greatest volume of tourist traffic in the park (and it’s a great…

It is difficult to put into words what we experienced while traveling around New Zealand. The North Island had so much to offer but the South Island really redefined our definition of natural beauty and wonder.  It was beyond inspiring and invigorating.  Here is our BEST of the South Island in photographs. We hope you can appreciate the power these scenes evoked in person and lasting impression they left on both of us. In no particular order…

Remote Access

Today, we continue the Best of the Decades feature. Four down, five to go. This week, I graciously present my picks for the ten best films from the 1960s, and you graciously tell me I mention Billy Wilder and Alfred Hitchcock too much. But don’t worry, this will, sadly, be the last week I’ll have them on my lists. Enjoy and feel free to comment with your own picks.

10. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

When we talk about large or small movies today, it’s usually a clear-cut no-fuss discussion. Battle of Los Angeles: big. The Kids Are All Right: small. But it wasn’t always this way. Take, for your consideration, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. This film was both broad (in the good, non-Whitney way) and detail-oriented. Oh, and that soundtrack. It gets me every time. Runner-ups: Charade, The Pink Panther

The Human Form as A Floral, Digital Renderings

Copyright 2011-3011 By Chase Kyla Hunter, All Rights Reserved.

Anonymous Digital Renderings Circulated on the Web in Early 2011.

These anonymous digital renderings circulated the web in early January 2011, and employ a high level of creativity and Photoshop skills. I thought they were spectacular and wanted to post them for others to enjoy. They fall under the blanket copyright of all content posted on my blogs. I have reason to believe they may have originated in the Mideast. These, to me, are especially novel and delightful.
