FREEDOMERICA DAY – 4th of July Fireworks

So cause around these here parts we support FREEDOM, and AMERICA, and FIREWORKS we documented some of our shenanigans on the fourth of July 2010.

Many of the crazier looking pictures were achieved using a blatant disregard for safety, string, and duct tape combined with a long shutter speed on my Canon 7D.

First Attempt at Light Painting

So after doing some research about it on the interwebs I decided to take my first shot at light painting.

That’s when you take your camera out somewhere really dark, and with an open shutter draw crazy designs in the air with a light source.

What follows is a small gallery of some shots I took using some sparklers. It was me, a friend, a vacant lot in the woods, and my Canon 7D.

They’re not nearly as cool as some of the more advanced techniques and pics you can see online, but it’s a start.

GWAR at Bonnaroo 2010

So GWAR played a 2:30 AM set at Bonnaroo this year.

You know, Bonnaroo, the giant music festival in Tennessee where thousands of hippies and dirty people with dreadlocks gather to listen to music and trip out on tons of drugs.

Yeah GWAR played there this year, and it was awesome!

They rocked, there was tons of blood, Space Michael Jackson had his face ripped off, there was dismemberment, more blood, Obama showed up and in typical GWAR fashion sprayed blood everywhere, Margaret Cho got killed, and the was evil mutant baby impalement, an evil space pope, and then some blood sprayed everywhere.

Here’s some pics.

AND HERE’S A SHORT VIDEO I TOOK A THE END OF THE SHOW!

Peelander Z at Common Grounds – Gainesville, Fl – April 23, 2010

So I went to see the band Peelander Z at Common Grounds last Saturday night.

They’re a Japanese punk rock band, that wear brightly colored outfits, have costumes, and have a great deal of audience involvement. There’s a giant squid, limbo, crowd surfing, chants, hand motions, silly wigs, conga lines, loud punk music, multiple choice song selection, and they gave out drumsticks and various pans to hit.

It was incredible fun and full of joyous spectacle.

They’re pretty awesome to say the least, if you ever have a chance to check them out live I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Here’s a bunch of pictures:
