Thom Truelove for President

Those of you who know and love Thom Truelove, won't be suprised in the slightest when I say "Thom called the other day with a really unusual idea to which my immediate response was You're joking, right?"

Thom's running for President. Of the U.S.. As suprising as that announcement was, the real shock was when he and his darling wife stopped by last night for a photo shoot -- because it's the first time I've ever seen him without a top hat, long hair, and blue glasses. So he must be serious. He actually cleans up right nice. (He was wearing a modest cape, so I know he wasn't spirited away and replaced by pod people).

for those of you who are reading this blog for the photography stuff -- this is an sb800 behind a 40 inch umbrella about 3 feet from the subject and to the right of the camera, about face height. The background is lit by an sb-80dx on a stand aimed directly up at the flag. The sb80 was at 1/64 or 1/128 power and i think the sb800 was at 1/8 power. Both strobes set manually and fired with an ebay radio trigger. Nikon d200 with a tokina 28-80 2.8 at f5.

Christyanne will probably post details on where to send your life savings to get this guy into the White House. All I'm asking is that the Fields of the Nephilim play the inagural ball.

splatter fests & gore films...

One of my friends is doing a documentary on splatterfest film directors. They're interviewing people from Trauma, and people like Richard Kern, etc. he's looking for film and director suggestions (indy) in the following categories:

"Our overall project aims to cover four kinds of transgressive films: (1) ultra-violent; (2) sacrilegious; (3) disgusting (e.g., Pink Flamingoes dog-poop eating); (4) sexually shocking. The first of these categories is proving a lot easier to find than the other three."

Let 'er rip, you sickos. Tell me your worst.

Bonus if they live on the east coast in or near NYC.

Chad Michael Ward, if you're listening, you get bonus points for recommending yourself.
