Over the weekend, we went to Phipps Conservatory, one of my favorite spots in Pittsburgh. They were having a glass exhibit that was kind of interesting. Here are some of the pics I took!

iPhone picture post. Part II

I don’t have any pictures, but a few weeks ago, we had a great dinner at Mandalay and then saw The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. Not long after, we checked out Cate Blanchett in A Streetcar Named Desire at the Kennedy Center. Koji is a really big fan. Doesn’t he look happy? We tried to get him to make it … Continue Reading →

The Swell Season

Here are some pics of the Swell Season concert I went to at the 9:30 Club a few weeks ago. The show was really great! They did a really great cover of Willie Nelson’s Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, and Marketa’s turn playing guitar and singing lead on “If You Want Me” (I think that’s the title?) was amazing.

My new 18th century fan!

The fan is circa 1770, French. It’s painted silk with ivory sticks, leaf, spangles, and embroidery. This one from 1775 has sticks like mine… These are all the medium pics but in this set on Flickr, there are super big ones so you can see detail! The fan also came with a really nice frame, which I haven’t put … Continue Reading →

Concert and other misc pics

I like this very important notice that was posted at work… Dhani Harrison! He was kind of dimly lit. My real camera probably got better pics. Not a great pic, but you get the idea! WolfMother The crowd, though this doesn’t very well capture the moshing going on down there. And the stage when they were done with it… I … Continue Reading →

A few pics from today’s adventure

Sara and I headed down to the Kennedy Center in DC to try to get some audio of the rehearsal for the GLAST symphony as well as an interview with the composer. It was tough to get past the dragons that guard the innards of the KC, but the composer got us into the green room. Which wasn’t green, FYI. … Continue Reading →

iPhone picture post

Here’s the last week or so in iphone pix! Guster concert, playing Blair Witch for the podcast, etc… This dahlia was so pretty! Rainstorm going over the Wilson Bridge. We went to a party at Doug’s boss’s house. Sara and I played Blair Witch Project at work last week for our latest podcast/vodcast. In our roamings in Building 2, I … Continue Reading →
