Rain Storm

And last night, right after I shot this we had two black outs here in Long Island due to the storm.  It was absolutely lovely… sometimes it really pays to live in the boonies =]

PS. My favorite part is at 1:50 when the lights go dark for a few second.  The wind was so bad outside the lamps kept flickering.

Harinezumi

Filed under: Uncategorized — thelabyrinthine @ 3:13 pm

I was walking around DUMBO yesterday with my new DSLR shooting videos and stills, when I came across a guy who was gripping on the palm of his hand what looked like a really tiny cell phone at first and capturing waves and rocks by the shore.  I was drawn to this little device again and again until my curiosity got the better of me as usual.  I walked up to him and hovered for a few seconds and then asked him, “dude, is that the tiniest video camera or what?”  He broke into a fraction of a smile and said, “yeah, isn’t it incredible?”  I said, yes, it looks about awesome. It was a Harinezumi 2, a 3mp digital camera / video recorder that he had just bought from the Powerhouse Arena store across the park for $180 + tax.  I was impressed, he was too with my Nikon FG strapped on my neck along with new DSLR body, we bartered a few notes on our love for old school photo/videography, lo-fis and shared a few sighs here and there.  But yeah…the Harinezumi.  Good stuff.

Here’s a video sample:

The Aesthetic Weasel

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — thelabyrinthine @ 6:38 pm

A weasel
perched on an easel
within a patch of teasel.

But why
and how?

The Moon Cow
whispered her reply
one time:

The sopheest-
icated beest
did it just for the rhyme.

by Christian Morgenstern, the German nonsense poet.

One of the cutest shape poetry I’ve seen :]

Must’ve painted this on a very beautiful day, that warm blue is my favorite tone of the sky.  Sun and cloud waltzing together :]

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Sheep sculptures made from rotary phones, and I love rotary phones.  I found a very beautiful sage green set at a thrift store near my place the other day, resisted buying it though :[

And these sculptures just reminded me that I have to get the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?. It’s the novel the movie Blade Runner was based on, which I absolutely heart.
