Just a quick update. I recently shot the mini-version of Gigantour 2013, the festival tour created by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine. This exciting for me on a personal level because in all my years shooting bands both big and small, I had yet to shoot one of my heroes, Zakk Wylde, until now.

E-Book Readers and Indie Bands

So, I normally don't post things along these lines, but there's a first time for everything.

With the sudden boom in crowd-funding, lots of people are turning to sites like Indiegogo or Kickstarter to get their projects funded and off the ground. In exchange, they offer some cool perks/prizes/goods/services/etc in exchange for donations of certain levels.

I'd like to just mention 2 projects that are online right now and need funding, because I have or had something to do with each of them.

Creatives Are Scatterbrained

There, I said it. Creative types, regardless of your style or delivered medium, tend to be a little bit "off" in the organization and memory departments. While this is a generalization, I do tend to find that it fits most of the creative's I've met, unless they've already got a person or a team of people managing their time and attention.

This is something that I've had to try to manage myself for a long time, in fact, I'm so scatterbrained that my blog post about being scatterbrained almost didn't get written in a timely manner because I was also juggling other tasks and entertaining some new ideas while I was writing it, and I got taken off course for... say... hours. I'm not proud of it, but it is what it is, and it certainly drives the point that this needed to be written and expressed.
