I clumsily started writing this blog a few years ago but really had no idea what to write. Turned into a diary of sorts — which reminds me, I have to delete a lot of that crap — and then I decided since I’ve written over 800 movie & book reviews on Amazon.com, why not post them here?
It’s also a good forum for my photography. Since getting the new Pentax K-5 and a better zoom lens, it’s been getting better. Many of my friends are moving to landscape photography, personal portraits and pictures of food. Me, I like events. Shooting many events in the City and elsewhere is challenging — tough to get the exposure right. But it’s fun.
Involved in Scientology since the 1980s has improved my creative abilities, including my ability to observe, increased reaction time and IQ, which comes in handy when shooting, reviewing or writing critical opinions of films.
I work at a major power/utility company in Northern California and enjoy comic collecting (yay, Stan Lee!), coin collecting (only silver dollars, the shinier the better) and want to recreate the hobbies I had as a kid.
I used to write movie reviews back on Viacom Cablevision which was fun. Doing it again online!
Getting gabby here. Enjoy!
