Leica M9-P

June 3rd, 2012

It’s my dream to own a Leica camera one day, but the truth is they are ridiculously expensive. Not just a bit above average, but insanely expensive ($8000). Price tag aside the video above shows how beautiful they are and the amount of work that it takes to make one. I guess if I ever happen upon buried treasure now you know that I’ll be buying one of these with the loot.

Sometimes people think up things that are way cooler that what the actual product will be. Case in point the above video.

2012 Beetle. I want that.

December 18th, 2011

Recently I stumbled upon this super smart HTML5 website for the new VW Beetle, and after being blown away by their great use of scrolling to navigate the site and single page design I have to also admit that I’m kind of growing fond of the idea of owning a beetle. I currently own and love my VW GTI (It’s by far the best car I have ever owned), but the styling of the new beetle is like a cuter GTI. Fun to dream.

Emigre HTML Website Template

November 21st, 2011

Not quite a week ago I uploaded a new template file to ThemeForest and I have to admit it’s a ton of stress and excitement. A lot of work and time goes into the design and code of these template files, and it’s always a gamble whether you’ll make back any money or not.

But it’s good to hear positive feedback and to get a 5 star rating. And to get so many purchases in less than a week. It’s a good sign that the wordpress version will garner even more sales and hopefully pay for this new baby we’re going to be having.

Illustrator and Photographer

November 14th, 2011

If there were two things I wish I could do really well it would be photography and then illustration, but unfortunately I don’t do either very well. And today after viewing some of the new work of Sanjay Patel I wish even more so that I could illustrate. It looks like Sanjay is putting on a show at the SF Asian Art Museum, along with doing some of the signage and graphics for another show also at the museum.

Deities, Demons and Dudes with ‘Staches will be on view at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum from November 11, 2011 through April 22, 2012. For more information, visit

Now I’m also wishing I lived in San Francisco so I could pop in to the museum. Maybe we’ll need to go on a long weekend with the baby before the end of April.
