Wow... I can't believe I'm doing this!

So I originally posted this on the wrong blog. I guess that's what I get for having too many blogs.

... Don't expect this to be a regular thing. Consider yourself lucky Sierra,

Anyway I got tagged by the above individual.

What are the 15 things I'm not ashamed to admit.

1: I'm a Nikon guy.

2: In contrast to Sierra I actually enjoy a wide variety of chick flicks.

3: I enjoy dancing, but there are qualifications

4: I require a lot of sleep. optimally I would go to bed at 10 and wake at 7 :)

5: Some people just annoy me. End of story.

6: I think a lot of people have misconceptions about the way things should be.

7: I have over 100,000 photos on my computer. (actually they have their own luxurious storage space.

8: *I have a beautiful guitar and I play it really well

9: I am fairly certain that I fall into a "leader" personality type somehow.

10: I am open to trying new experiences as long as it doesn't involved "new" food.

11: If I can limit my "B" grades to only one this semester I will Graduate Magna Cum Laude at Illinois State University!

12: I love taking pictures of people, but there are naturals out there who just know how to pose. I love those people (in a non-creepy sort of way)

13: When I was younger I used to carve toy weapons out of wood. I've made a Thompson Sub-Machine Gun, An Uzi (which I gave as a gift), a Flintlock pistol, and my own copy of "sting" from LOTR.

14: When I was younger I was into Guns, Knives, and Self Defense. You might not know it to look at me now, but I can still kick your butt! :)

15: I have a fairly amazing sense of balance and can hold my own at the Limbo! Dare to challenge me?

I'm not going to tag anybody. Cause I am conceited and want this to die with me!

In Christ,
D.Price

Reformation Day ...at last!


It's taken me a while to get these ready for viewing by the world. But I have at last completed the collection. This, of course, means I'll be mailing out the CDs to everybody who ordered very shortly (waiting on a couple of prints). If you're interested in purchasing a Photo CD please send me an email via the contact page on my site. The CD's are $10 That would be the most convenient.

Chairman

This may seems strange to those who know me, but am continually fascinated with old things. Chairs in particular fascinate me. I have concluded that my fascination is derived in a certian degree by the mystery connected with the old item. Everything that is affected by human interaction contains a unique history. Chair are obviously designed to interact with people on a regular basis. It is due to this that I find chairs to be so cool.

I currently have two chairs of which I am proud. I guess you could call this the beginning of my collections, but I don't know if I would go that far... yet. Since I don't have pictures of my chairs I'll try and describe them.

Small Swivel Task Chair
This chair is pretty cool... it is full swivel task chair with a screw height adjustment and a reclining back. Its construction is solid wood and cast iron.

Small wooden folding chair
This, I can only assume was the predecessor to the metal folding chairs we know and love. The cool thing is it folds differently, is kinda layed back, and smaller. I have used this a lot for photography.

Chairs for me are a new thing. I haven;t done a lot of research concerning chairs and their styles, but I think I may start. My grandpa... has/had a old dental chair from the... I don't know what era, but its cool. If I had room for it I would love to have it. My mom just recently acquired a cool old school desk. Chairs like these have character. They have their own history.

Okay I guess i'm certifiable now. I'll see what I can do about getting some photos up.

Whoa!

I just realized that I hadn't posted pictures from the Presbytery Baseball outing. I think I may have sent them to a couple of people, but I must not have published them. Oops, my bad.


Here you go!

Who are you?

Yes I'm talking to you... I don't use one of those nifty visitor trackers apps, if there's one built into blogger I haven't messed around enough to know how to use it. Due to this I really have no idea who reads me blog. Thus the reason for this post. I am curious who frequents my blog and why. That's right I am asking "you all" a question. Actually I have a list of questions.

What's your name?

Why do you read my blog?

Where do you live? (This can be as vague as a state if you're that paranoid)

Where did you hear about my blog?

Have you recommended my blog to others for ANY reason? (ie: hey dude check this guy out he's a total joke)(I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE REASON)

Do you have any comments on the current state of my blog? (no harsh language please)

Place your answers to my inquiry in the comments!

Thanks

July 3rd

Every year on the 3rd of July, there is a special family friendly fireworks display and evening events at the park in Peoria. My sister and I attended this along with some of our friends as well as some new acquaintances.












To see the fireworks from that night visit my other blog.

Weekend in TN

Anna and I made a somewhat sudden trip down south. The additional draw this weekend was a concert by Nathan Clark George.







Other things happened though... Here are some photos of some friends kind enough to let me take their picture.

Robot Idolotry

I thought I would take some time to share some awesome robot dances I found on YouTube. I am a sucker for this dance style and these both are very entertaining. Enjoy!

Hare"y" Business

This afternoon as I was mowing the lawn I had this little object dart out from in my front of my mower. As it was headed directly for Knightly's (our Boarder Collie) domain I decided to quickly run after it and capture it. I was successful in obtaining the small fella and put him in a 5 gallon bucket for safe keeping along with a bunch of sod and grass. Later on Anna and I pulled him out in the safe confines of our bathroom and had fun modeling the poor guy. While I'm sure he didn't enjoy it he had an arsenal of great poses.

Swing, Brother! Swing!

Hey everyone, this past weekend My sister (Anna) and I participated in a Dance showcase. Our chosen rhythm was "swing" and our song... Swing, Brother! Swing. The success of the choreography can be attributed to Anna and all the mess-ups to myself.

A little history on this project... This showcase dance (the entire event) was announced something like 2 weeks prior to the actual event. I am approaching the end of the semester which means I have a slew of final projects. Anna and I spent a bunch of time on the weekends watching numerous online swing videos feature various moves. Once we got two aerials to the point that we were comfortable, we began working on finding music that was suitable for the showcase. After finding "Swing, Brother! Swing," I began with preliminary basic choreography. Anna then took this and actually made something worth watching (I actually doubt she used any of my original stuff). We then spent several nights as well as the entire Friday leading up to the dance on Saturday night practicing. We got all dressed up and this is what we produced.

I hope you enjoy it!
