True story, I was able to see the crash site from the office. Only had an iPhone 3 at hand, and glare from the window made it difficult to see, especially in the distance, but if you look closely you can still distinctly see the tail sticking out of the water.
Summer vacation along the east coast visiting The Outer Banks and Washington DC
A week ago I came back from St. Maarten, an island known for it’s weather and beaches. There are a few ways to tell a good beach from a great one:
- Clean beaches.
- Evidence that topless tanning is allowed.
- Signs like the one to the left warning you of death by heavy metal.
A beach with an active runway for an international airport makes for a good time. So much so I got to this beach a several times. Equipped with a camera phone I took some video’s of the fun. The video’s are slightly grainy since it was taken on a phone, and a bit shaky since the jet blast could be pretty strong at times.
For the record, sand does go through clothing at that speed. It was strong enough that I wasn’t able to watch a takeoff live as I had to turn my head and close my eyes. Only afterward could I watch the video replay.

I’ve decided to expand and showcase some more of my talents. I can analyze information systems, code, and be artistic. That’s right! Inspired by the great Andy Warhol I decided to express myself artistically in the most fluid and graceful way I could think of.
Old and Busted
Each label had to be pealed off “pretty cleanly”, not perfect, but can’t be in pieces. Each intersection of 4 corners were taped together. They were put up on the wall in chunks every few weeks taped to the wall and pre-existing segments.
Will I continue to grace the Art Scene? I’m not sure. It’s not about the fame, the money, or the glamor… but about the art. Making beautiful things.
259 bottles of art on the wall, 259 bottles of art.
Take one down and pass it around, 258 bottles of art on the wall.
And that’s what this college student did with some of his free time.
Note: The wall wasn’t able to tolerate being moved, and was torn down 5/10/2006. A temporary exhibition of stupid ideas executed.
There are no high resolution pics, as I only had a camera phone on me
Took an Art History trip to visit The Gates (Wikipedia Link), and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Of course I snapped some Camera Phone pictures. Note I was walking the entire time, so these were all made while walking on ice.
When visiting the gates, if you ask one of the “Pole People” (the people with poles that have Tennis balls affixed to one end so they can unwrap a gate should the fabric be blown and twisted), you can get a sample of the fabric used. Rather interesting free souvenir.
Afterward we visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art and checked out some of their stuff. I spent some time roaming in there and got somewhat lost (intentionally didn’t carry a map, just drifted where I felt I wanted to go at the moment). Noteworthy is the Frank Lloyd Wright Living Room (who designed the nearby Guggenheim), and some of the armor and weapons they collected. Rather cool stuff.
Well, got up, checked my email, hit the shower, had breakfast, and went to class:
World Lit 2/24 Canceled: Enjoy the Snow
Well thanks for the Email! Oh well…. on my way back I snapped a few pictures of the snow (from the Camera Phone).
Edit: 2:30 pics posted. Last one is a cheap rip off of Christo’s “The Gates”. Ok, it’s just some construction barrier.
Just a snowstorm at Rowan University campus, taking pictures with an LG vx6000 between classes.
