a subtle change

Hmm...I just realized that the web-server-log-file-rotating-system that I configured was rotating the log in such a manner that would cause Webalizer (the program that generates this site's usage stats) to miss possibly hours worth of log entries. I've reconfigured it so that at most, it will miss maybe one hour of entries (potentially between 2 and 3 in the morning every Sunday). Who knows how many hits have not been reported in the usage stats because of my careless misconfiguration?! It boggles the mind... You can all rest easily now, though.


I'm using the right side of my brain too much lately

I went to jam with Nathan, and man, did I have a huge headache afterwards. The stuff we played was very challenging for me and required a lot of thought constantly. And even still, I just barely was able to play decently. Nathan is alright, but he plays a bit too atonally, and I wonder if he can play some straight funk (which is more up my alley). Anyway, after that, I went to Boston to take some pictures of "pattern and rhythm" then develop film and print stuff. I'm getting lazier in the darkroom -- I need to spend more time on each print. As it is, I'm averaging about 2 prints per hour, but I need to be more picky. I also need to buy more paper. bugger. Here are a couple recent pictures:
interpret them as you wish.


sleep, fool

My sleep patterns have been out of whack for the past week or so. But I need to wake up early tomorrow (really today) so that I can catch the train and meet up with Nate in Melrose to jam. Then I've got to take a bunch of pictures, develop, and print some stuff. Drat, I hope there's time. It seems like my entries have become progressively more boring. I think that means I'm becoming more boring. Gee, I hope so. I need to start thinking about the novel I told myself I'd write next month. There will be updates, you can count on it. (why am I saying "you"? as if anyone actually reads this crap....) I'm tired now. tune in next time for more.....


interesting day

I'm having a lot of fun on my latest photography assignment: shoot the same subject in several different ways. It's a little challenging, but I chose to shoot 6 subjects 6 different ways rather than 1 subject 36 different ways. I'm also using my new favorite lens: SMC-M 50mm f1.7 that I won on Ebay. When I returned home, I found out that my mother had to go to the hospital because of chest pains. So, I went up there to find out what was going on. Luckily, it turned out to be some kind of muscle problem rather than a heart attack.


the fruits of my labor

Here are some recent prints that I made:
In other news, I had a very very bad nightmare.....I won't even say what it was about.
