Best Feet Forward

I got these cool Clarks shoes that came with 2 pairs of laces. I took a photo of the shoes halfway through swapping out the beige laces for the black ones and almost left them this way.

We're having a rather warm fall here in NYC. It feels like late June, maybe even early July.

Some Things

I spent the last two days at New York Comic Con. Here's a report of what I did there and here are photos of some cosplayers.

If you're in NYC or planning to visit, you might want to check out these 15 Secret or Easy Things to Miss in NYC.

These People Have WAY Too Much Time on Their Hands is a gallery of awesome photos.

This Galaxy Quest mockumentary is awesome despite being blurry due to its age.

Lack of Posts Not My Fault

My computer is dying. For the last three days, it wouldn't boot. Posting may be even more sporadic than usual until I can replace my PC. Tonight, after 7 tries in a row, it decided to allow me access. How nice of it!

Simon Pegg on a Stick

I went to see the new movie "Pride" a couple of days ago. It's a marvelous movie based on a true story about a group of gay and lesbian activists in London who raised money in support of striking Welsh miners in the 1980s. And as I was leaving, one of the theater staff members was handing out these promo items for the movie "Hector and the Search for Happiness." So now I have a photo of Simon Pegg on a stick. :) But I'm not sure I'm going to go see it. The reviews have been rather mixed.

Not being able to come up with a post of any note, I am once again resorting to posting links.

A new smartphone app is a game changer for people who are blind or who have limited vision.

A fun Kickstarter to support, especially if you love libraries.

A reminder of a fun little photo project I'm working on with a friend: The Adventures of Murray, Just a Regular Invisible Guy.

I love this! The Game of Thrones theme, Western version.

Guardians of the Galaxy fans, we can now own a jacket just like Star Lord's!

These people posing with statues are just so clever.

John Stewart explain climate change in terms anyone should be able to understand.

The Adventures of Murray the Invisible Guy

So that collaborative photo project I briefly mentioned a short while back? It's underway. It's mostly a way for a friend and me to play together despite living nowhere near each other. We'll be taking turns on a weekly basis posting photos of Murray, Just a Regular Invisible Guy who usually wears only a pair of red high-top sneakers. You can follow his adventures on flickr here and here, and on Facebook.
