America’s birthday is a time to go to the edge of the country and look beyond it into the abyss and watch the fireworks. I did that yesterday. Here are the results. Read more
What do you get when your cow falls into a hole and you swindle your neighbor? The second most visited nature site in the state of New York: Howe Caverns. Read more
I didn’t expect much from Albany. And initially it did not disappoint. I expected nothing and I got nothing. And then…Lark Street and the absolutely amazing architecture of the town. Here’s some doors from Albany, part of my new erotic picture book “The Doors of Albany”.
Then the next day? The freaking museum.
That Albany itch of yours not scratched? Click here for some video from UNDER the great state of New York. If that doesn’t work, try a salve.
I love video that feels like a vintage postcard. So I set about making a video from my visit last week to the San Diego Zoo to look just like that. From the font choice to the coloring, I wanted a video that felt immediately nostalgic. My love for that zoo is INFINITE so I wanted the video I made about it to feel timeless. The song is “From the Dead” off the new Faith No More album and it’s perfect. Read more
Recently I had the pleasure of visiting the great city of Pittsburgh with my friends at Nuts ’n More. Don’t know Nuts ’n More? Go to their site, buy some of their delicious and nutritious nut butters and then leave a thank you comment on my site. I’ll wait.
You’re back! Good. Well recently I had the great pleasure of tagging along with them as they signed a multi-million dollar deal with GNC with Mark Cuban and the crew of ABC’s Shark Tank. That’s a mouthful. Lots of dollar signs in there. Anyway, I brought my trusty camera and my wits and filmed them over the course of two days and filmed their sense of humor and their excitement leading into one of the most important deals of their lives (so far).
Below are some clips from the video I produced from that trip. A trip I dubbed ‘nsylvania.
Gettin’ a Shine
Rentin’ a Car
Visitin’ Simple Sugars
Meetin’ Mark Cuban

I’m trying to buy a roundtrip ticket to New York but because Amtrak.com is run by a lobotomized chimp, it is proving to be more difficult than it ever needed to be. So in comes Julie: Amtrak’s “virtual assistant”.
Certainly this plucky gal can help me solve my locomotive misfortune!
But alas, Julie has problems. Severe emotional problems that I can only assume are the result of an abusive relationship with her alcoholic and moody boyfriend: The Shadowy “Amtrak Man”.
I tried to talk to Julie, not just to solve my problem but to maybe help her with hers, but sometimes people don’t want your help. Sometimes, Julie, you have to hit bottom to reach for a hand up. Below is my conversation with my weary virtual assistant. Her assistance may be virtual, but her struggle is all too real.
Godspeed, Julie. Maybe you’ll get to where you need to go. And maybe I’ll end up in New York. And when you look up at that New York City skyline and see the Empire State Building glowing in the night sky from in between two swollen-shut eyes, you think of me. Because as I look out over the Hudson and see an eastbound train heading nowhere, I’ll think of you.
I just got back from a 10 day trip to Italy where I visited Milan, Florence, Lake Como, Venice and Rome. Here is a short video about how the five senses can be experienced in Florence, Italy.
