Autumnal Powers

By in Friends & Family, Video

Our trivia team headed to Powers Farm Market in Pittsford, an annual tradition for many of us. I shot two photos, and made this little video. One of these years I’ll actually go on the hayride.

James Horner and Casper’s melody of death

By in Movies, Soundtracks

Casper is the film that gave me a multifaceted view on death. I’d certainly thought about death before Brad Silberling’s 1995 film — like everyone else, I’d experienced the loss of pets and relatives — but I hadn’t actively tried to comprehend what dying meant. It was something sad that happened, but it was part of life’s cycle: people were here, and then they weren’t. […]

By in Friends & Family, Video

While visiting Brian & Alana in Missouri, we frequently passed a local roadside attraction called Santa’s Magical Kingdom – a campground decked out in hundreds of thousands of lights for the holidays. Immediately deciding we wanted to visit for a kitschy good time, Brian’s Dad agreed to drive his pickup truck, while the four of us huddled […]

84th Oscar Thoughts

By in Movies, Soundtracks, TV

Adam & I stayed home to watch this year, just the two of us and a warm bowl of delicious, delicious poutine (thanks Rachel, for the ‘curds!). I’ve been wildly indifferent on this year’s films (and thus, Oscar nominees) overall, so my heart wasn’t in it for the flicks, for once. Here are my stray […]
