Come as you are...

Today we're going here...

pic from their website

The Experience Music Project... well I'm not going in because it's really just a Hard Rock Cafe without the over priced cheesburgers, but I am a sucker for Frank Gehry buildings.

Truth is that I've been there before for work and free drinks so I'm also not super psyched to pay to see Kurt Cobain's boots.

Today or tomorrow...

... we're going to rent bikes from this guy who is a huge Red Sox fan and sells these t-shirts:

I hear there is a Yankee bike shop here also, but the bikes are old, overpriced, and all they do is talk about how good they used to be. (And their customers wonder how long before the manager will get fired.)

I did just write a how to...

I did just write a 'how to' about the Arbor Day video I made, but unfortunately:

I will finish the 'how to' later, once I calm down.

Arbor Day

Arbor Day from cohnjoyne on Vimeo

CAUTION: I'm no doctor, but if you are susceptible to seizures, you may want to look away.

I'm not super happy with the flash version on Vimeo... I might make a less infringe-y version and put up the pristine MP4 on

Also, will post a "how I did it" soon.

My first real HATER!!!

I got my first real hater today. Other than EVIL JOHN that is. Some winner over on youtube posted this on my video "A Rocky Love Story":

"Typical pretty Quincy girl. They all seem to date fat double chinned ugly guys that are out of shape. I use to live there and was in great shape with all my hair and could never get a stuckup Quincy girl. They all date fat guys"

My wife's response:
"Dear sir,
Thank you for the compliment(?). But you've got it completely wrong. Not only do I not live in Quincy, but I wasn't even born in Eastern Massachusetts. My fat, balding husband of five years is the love of my life, who also does not live in Quincy. Perhaps when you're looking in the mirror at your "great shape" and full head of hair you should also take a moment to look inside yourself and find out why women don't like you."

I'm going to be so bummed out if he's just a friend playing a trick on me.


Another 48 hrs...

Filmmaker, photographer, audio specialist, and boxing enthusiast, Chris Engles, documented the creation of the most recent 48 hour film project that I was involved in.

It was a relief to just run camera.

Try to guess which shot of me I'm most embarrassed by...

Like Pandora? Like SomaFM? Like choice? Like listening to something outside of the mainstream?

I do.

Well the Copyright Royalty Board, aka the man, wants to make it financially impossible for independent voices to continue to bring new music to you. You can help, click the image above to find out how...
