Saw Nouvelle Vague at The Fillmore last night. They do a lot of late 70s-early 80s cover songs, a lot of bossa nova style renditions of many new wave classics. Great show. It's always refreshing to see shows that are not over produced. Check them out on their website or on myspace.

Saw this comic strip in the paper the other day. Quintessential Companion for All Artists. I could definitely use this Super Hero as an amateur photographer myself. In the meantime, I have decided to better my "super hero" skills and enroll in a framing & matting class every Tuesday at the Piedmont Adult School. Classes start next week and I'm quite excited. Also, I have been working on a new website to share my photographs. Here is the new link -- nomadiclens. So when you have time please visit, browse, share and leave me some comments/feedback. I am also thinking of merchandising some of these photographs (maybe postcard set or posters or t-shirts), so if anyone is interested in something like this, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment.

Gorbachev's global initiative for solving the world's most pressing environmental challenges.
"We need a new system of values - a system that recognizes the organic unity between humankind and nature and promotes the ethic of global responsibility."
- President Gorbachev
