100 Resolutions

I don't really have 100 Resolutions, I only have a few. I figured this would be a good time to update because if I update now it will be logged on here and I can check back and see which of them I have actually stuck with and which ones I've failed at miserably. So here they go, and a year from now I'll give myself a follow up.

1. Enroll in school before 2011. I feel like I can accomplish this pretty easily, I just have to get off of my ass and do something about it.

2. Travel as much as possible. I know this is a very popular resolution for many people, but I have seriously traveled like 5 times ever. I've been to Nags Head, Ohio, Florida, New York, Tennessee, Alabama, Atlanta and Baltimore. I need to experience the world somehow. So this is something that has to happen this year.

3. Hold a steady job. We all know that I suck at this, like almost more than anything else. I need a job, and I need to stick to it. I want to work at a restaurant, but who knows where I'll end up. Either way, I want to keep it for at least a year, and hopefully I'll be able to get benefits and what not, who knows.

4. Develop all of the rolls of film that I shoot. I know, I know, I have like 40 rolls of undeveloped film, but I'm going to get them developed soon. I just have to come up with the money for it. It's pretty expensive to process 120mm film.

5. See my friends more often. I have been a horrible friend this past year, I know in a previous post I said I would make my "mid year resolution" hanging out with my friends at least a little bit every day. I didn't do this at all. My bad.

6. Buy a skateboard. I stopped skateboarding at the end of high school. I miss it.

7. Vegan. I've been Vegan for almost a year and a half now. I'd like to continue with this, I'm not saying that after a year I'll give up, I just want to make sure that I have some incentive.

I guess that's all for now. If I think of anything else, I'll edit.

Either way, 2009 kind of sucked. I didn't see my friends nearly as much as I wanted to. I made some friends and lost some friends. Some friends changed, most friends are still the same. I think I just need to be more social. Hopefully 2010 is my year, if not...there's always 2011.

Title Fight-March 7, 2009

March 7th was a good day except for the fact that I let someone cut off all of my hair. Title Fight, Steel Nation, and Naysayer played a show at the Czar. I wanted to shoot with my Yashica T4, but I didn't have it yet, so I shot with a Kodak point and shoot camera, and the results were pretty chill. I was shooting with Ilford HP5 plus (one of my favorite films.) The show was awesome, tons of people came out. It was a good time. Here are some pictures.

Outside the Czar, chillin.

Chillin outside the Czar, again.


These pictures are from Title Fight. I will add
more if anyone wants to see them.

The weather is starting to get warm. It's really nice besides the fact that I have a cold. It sucks, and so does Slaughterama. I went to it this past weekend, and I was miserable. It was fun to hangout with people. I decided to make a new "mid" year resolution. I am going to try to hangout at least a little bit every day. I haven't been hanging around with my friends much these days, so I figured I better start now. Well, that's all I got for you.

The past few months...

So, I decided to create a new blog I guess. This will mainly be a place for me to share my pictures with everyone and explain them a little more in detail than I can on my Flickr account. I have been cycling through cameras lately, I can't decide what camera I'm more infatuated with. For a while I had a Yashica MAT124G, a Yashica Electro 35GSN, a Yashica T4, a Yashica EZMatic, and a Kodak AF100 Point and Shoot. I basically sold off the collection and now I just have my MAT124G.
At first I was very skeptical. I didn't think I would like using the MAT124G. I mean, it's a cool camera from the 50's, but TLR style and waist-level view finder, I thought that was weird. In January, me and a couple of my freinds decided to follow the Down To Nothin, Swamp Thing, and Bad Seed tour. It was only a couple of days, but we hit Johnson City, TN, Birmingham, AL, and Atlanta, Ga. I had a great time, met a bunch of new people, and made some friends. I took my MAT124G with me to shoot some test rolls along the way. I was very impressed with the results I got. I was shooting with Kodak 120 TX400. Here are some pictures I took, enjoy!

This is Jamie in Atlanta, Ga.

This is a bit dark, but it's a few friends after
a show.

sculpture that we found in Atlanta, GA.

picture at a miniature Eiffel
Tower we found in Atlanta, GA.

All in all, I thought they turned out decently. I still have a lot to learn about this camera, but I'm pretty excited about the quality and results I've had so far.

I guess I'll just catch everyone up on my day to day. I'm still unemployed which sucks, I'm in debt pretty bad and that sucks. I have a job interview Friday at Aramark. It's a food services place, but I think I might skip it. They want me to work at the Philip Morris building on Broad St. and I don't think I can deal with that.

I was recently the star of a movie filmed by Alex ( It's a modern classic called Stallion of the Year. You should all be able to check it out before too long.

After a 6 or 7 months of waiting, my car is finally fixed. It cost me an arm and leg (another reason I'm in debt.) It still has a few problems, there is mold in the back floor board (EW), It needs a new radiator, mine is leaky. And I will need a new exhaust system before too long. Mine is super loud and rattly, sounds so awful!

And last, but definitely not least, I am in a great relationship!
