Ok I got a new laptop so I can start blogging again! I still haven’t set up photoshop but I can finally continue to shoot develop and scan film again!
Oh and what a perfect day to start blogging again because this week has been horrible. Between a hell at school and a bad ATM problem, a problem that has left me short on money for the next 5 to 10 days, I just cannot find another reasonable way to vent and relax than spending my time shooting photos again.
Oh, on the bright side of this crappy week, look at what I found in the mail today.
I sent a photo submission to Jonessoda.com to see what would happen last July and I guess I got picked.
Yeah, I know it’s not a big deal. I mean I think they choose about fifty submissions a month or something right? But my luck in photo hasn’t been so awesome recently, so it was nice to have a win for once. Even a small one like this.
On the comics side I started reading current Ultimate Spider-man (#1-14 after Ultimatum) now that I’ve finally caught up with all the trades (11 hardcovers, it was a lot). And. It. Is. Good. Oh so good. It’s a nice happy colorful adventure of spider-man on one side, and the tragic stories of horror and teen angst that was so great in the original Ult. Spider-man series on the other side. The way that Bendis just constantly beats down on a poor teen Peter Parker makes you really sympathize with him and cheer him on when the fun and happy parts of the book occur. This balance between Peter’s fun and light stories with the Human Torch, Iceman, MJ, and Gwen and Spider-man’s life of just crappy and worst things happening to him is perfect. And the bright, colorful art by Lafuente is jut amazing also. An improvement in my opinion over the last two.
