Wouldn’t You Like to Be a Checker, Too?

I’m a checker. There. I’ve said it. When I get on a plane, I check all the exits, count the seats to each and  make sure I know how to operate my mask and floatation devices. (You’re welcome, Flight Attendants. It’s me, the one who was paying attention.) When I go to the movies, a […]

Awolnation, Imagine Dragons, Zeale Heat Up Water Street Music Hall

This was my first venture out to Water Street Music Hall in Rochester. They have had some great acts in the past so I’ll have to keep an eye out now that I know how easy it is to get to. Seriously. I live in the eastern Buffalo burbs and it was an hour door […]

2Cellos on Glee (spoiler alert)

Pinterest Ate My Blog

Seriously. If you are not familiar, Pinterest is a visually lush Internet time suck. So instead of updating my blog, I spend my days posting or “pinning” pictures of pretty clothes or purple hair or cute puppies to a virtual bulletin board. I have a variety of boards which I’ve titled things like Awesome Hair […]

People With ADD Should Not Go to Pier One

Not that I’ve actually been diagnosed or anything, unless you include every layperson I encounter. There is WAY too much going on in Pier One to focus on any one thing. It is, however, great fodder for Awkward Photojournalism. . I went in there with high hopes and walked out with almost nothing. I did […]
