Rubik's, originally uploaded by billaday.

For years, I've always driven by this building as I went from the 5 to the 57. I even tried to find a cool angle on the side of the road once to photograph it. Alas, it was not meant to be. So, today, as traffic slowed, I grabbed my camera from the center console, aimed it toward the Discovery Science Center Cube-type building, and took this picture. With a quick crop and some color adjustment, I'm stoked on the photo. This building must be 4 stories tall. It's pretty sweet.

Duet, originally uploaded by billaday.

Here's my new favorite piece of sound equipment: Apogee Duet. You can plug anything musical straight into it (electric guitar, vocal mic, etc), and it works seamlessly with Garageband and Logic. And it sounds amazing. I plugged my guitar straight in (I didn't even plug in my fancy, awesome sounding amp (or effects)), and my guitar sounded soooo good in Garageband.

So here's part 2 of this photo description-thing. I discovered the Apogee Duet while reading an article about Coldplay's producer. This guy recorded with the Duet, and was stoked with the result. I found 300 amazing reviews online... and they are all true. This hardware rocks. I think my next album will be recorded on this.

the MacBook Pro has arrived

The much-awaited date has finally arrived. I have a MacBook Pro! I love it.

So, until I migrate all my photos and apps, the photo-a-day will continue... slowly. (The last time I switched computers, I didn't bother to keep anything. I wanna do it right now.) While you eagerly await more of my photos, take a trip down memory lane and see some places I've been.

day at the office

Simple: yes. Interesting (to me): yes.

For whatever reason, I always like the look of birds hanging out on stuff--wires, poles, whatever. Perched birds haven't been a photo-a-day before, so here ya go.

Easter Island storm troopers

If Star Wars took place a millennia ago, I believe that the Easter Islands would have been named the Storm Trooper Islands... and that they would have looked like this

a new perspective on blue

Whatever could it be?

ok, ok. It's a blue bench. The picture is upside down, too.

Sorry for ruining that guessing game for the not-too-abstract photo. Yeah.

precision, originally uploaded by billaday.

My Fender P Bass. The P stands for precision. It's hard to get a better bass tone than this. You plug it in, it sounds great. Incidentally, that's one reason playing the bass is so great.
