Went to The Hudson Branch Show tonight... took over 530 pictures. Here's a glimpse of the show. It was really good. They get better every time I see them.

Lots of pictures to edit.

Finished the farnsworth addition project yesterday. I took a very different approach then most people. I decided to design something that would completely contrast the farnsworth in order to emphasize it. I created a dialogue between my addition and the farnsworth through the framing of views. I'm pretty happy with the result. I really challenged myself by using shapes and concepts i dont usually consider.

Some old shots from TDWP cover shoot. Check out this months issue of AP Magazine for Evan's shots of them. Dallas Green of Alexisonfire and City and Colour was voted runner-up for best guitarist of 2009, but they changed his last name to Taylor.... Stupid.

I had an awesome night.

Saw City and Colour with Scarbro at the Metro.
Dallas Green is unreal. His guitar playing is incredible and his vocals were spot on. It was like I was listening to his albums. He played some new songs that will be on the new record too.

After the show, we drove over to Jake's apartment for the Hudson Branch house show. Lots of singing and dancing. I went pro on the bells.

Most of the time, all I want to see is the bigger picture. Where will I live in a couple years? Will I still be able to afford school next year? When will I see a good friend again? Why do people have to leave?
Faith is very hard to commit to, but it's all we've got.

Happy 50th Birthday dad!

Heading out to Monarch Ski Resort today. This will be my third time to the mountains this season. I hear that it gets some of the best powder around so hopefully it'll be good day for snowboarding.

I was able to visit to the Cadet Chapel at the Air Force Academy yesterday with my dad. It's a very impressive design. I wasn't completely sold on it's appearance until I got up close to it, but I think it's changed my mind. It does a good job catering as a multi faith chapel with a Protestant church up top and a Catholic church, Jewish temple, and Buddhist meditation room on the lower level. More pictures to come.

Partygoer: So Tom, what is it that you do?
Tom: I uh, I write greeting cards.
Summer: Tom could be a really great architect if he wanted to be.
Partygoer: That's unusual, I mean, what made you go from one to the other?
Tom: I guess I just figured, why make something disposable like a building when you can make something that last forever, like a greeting card.
