This week on September 20th of 2012, I turned 42 years old. As my brother Antero the astrologer says, I’ve completed another lap around the Sun. I take a moment to reflect upon the last year and share my thoughts.

To celebrate the rare blue moon occurrence that happened this August I went out to photograph the full blue moon. My first attempt at photographing the moon turned out pretty good, so to honor the blue moon celebration I’ve made a wallpaper available to download.

Duran Duran was one of the biggest brit-pop bands from the 80′s and 90′s that dominated the MTV air waves and Billboard charts. While I’ve never been a big fan of the band, they do have several classic hit songs that helped define pop music in those decades.

Gotta hand it to Rockstar, after so many years since the original Max Payne game they go out and bring the game back to life in a full on reboot.
