A few more pictures from Europe.

A few of the selects I have from Europe.

We hit Paris, Switzerland, and Italy and had an amazing time. It’s a great place to take pictures.

The best prototype of a flying car I’ve seen. Besides the one from Flubber of course.

The Dutch have made a flying car

Specifically, the PAL-V is a car and a gyroplane combined, capable of both an air and ground speed of 112mph and a sub 8.0sec 0-60mph time. It can be flown in Europe with a Recreational Pilot Licence or a Private Pilot Licence, while a plain old driving licence is all you need to take the PAL-V out on the roads.  

And don’t think that just because it can fly, they’ve made it drive like one of Hannibal’s elephants. The PAL-V features the same Dynamic Vehicle Control system used on the Carver ONE that Hammond drove in Top Gear Series 2, Episode 9.

Basically, the car tilts into corners like a motorcycle, the aggression of your steering input determining the angle of lean. It looks fun. And then when you get to your airfield, or quiet stretch of the M1, out come the propeller and the rotor and you’re up, up and away.

This is a pretty gnarly Willys Jeep Station Wagon; looks like the body is dropped on a newer chassis (good eye, Dad). Spotted in San Diego, CA.

Some Portraits

I haven’t yet built up the courage to ask people to work with me, so alas, more pictures of the dog and one of myself. Cripes. Anyway, I think they turned out well and it’s beginning to feel more comfortable behind the camera. For the effect, I steamed up a polar filter by breathing on it (it’s cold in LA these days); it remained phlegm-free.

The economy has affected everyone. But of these down and out chimney sweeps, it’s the least of their worries.

Odd Daughters is the producing, writing, and acting comedy team of Whitney Merritt and Talia Derry. With an endless supply of manic creativity, expect more off-the-cuff characters and short films on the way.

A message from Rue

Music is “Sweet Sixteen” by B.B. King

Here’s a great video drawing comparisons of the response to protests over seas and our own.

Very nice.

This is a short time lapse I did in a couple hours of my roommate making a custom table for someone in LA.

Music is “Stomping Grounds” by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

Tell it like it is, Rush!

There’s not a lot of people I don’t mind demonizing.  Rush Limbaugh is one of those people.
