"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.

I REALLY don't believe that islam is a religon of evil...

A couple friends of mine work for Minnesota Congressman elect Keith Ellison. He is the first Muslim to be elected to congress.

I watched the Daily Show just now and saw an idiot interview him. My new favorite "journalist" (quotes included) is Glenn Beck. Please watch this embarrassing short clip.

oh, oh, oh - don't worry about Iraq, Glenn has looked into the good side of the things that have happened in Iraq - amazing. "Virtually no one had even HEARD of a cell phone..." amazing.

thank you for telling us the REAL story in two minutes and 40 seconds.

Good Sister, Bad Brother.

Once upon a time, my sister came out to visit me at college. This was before cell phones were widely accepted. I was told when she was coming by my mother. Somehow I got the date and time PM and AM messed up... don't know where the fault was, doesn't matter.

I went to a cast party. I got home, late, but still early enough so that I could get some sleep to pick up my sister in the morning. on my answering machine I found a few frantic messages from my mother and sister. She had been waiting for many hours at the airport.

Yesterday was my sister's birthday. I had planned an internet blitz - a full onslaught of birthday wishes. I wanted it to be in the middle of the day. I took a nap. I forgot.

My sister is a great human, and even better sister. I'm sorry for late birthday wishes, Pondie. Please forgive me.

Happy Birthday.

Year Two.

This marks the secondy year of my bloggerdy. (here is the first)


shall we go back in time? we shall.

At this point in time last year I was in Argentina and then Paraguay with my brother. Whoh, it was back then that I realized I wanted to be a photojournalist... weird.

Tookie died and I shot Ashcroft.

I had a really good weekend, full of photos, fun, and a girl that didn't work out.

I was annoyed by things. including the Metro Strike.

I went home for Christmas.

There was new years and the immediate trip to hawwaii in my tux.

I bought my baby.

People took their pants off in the subway. and all of the traffic that happened after.

I realized I was from brooklyn.

I told you what some of my friends on my side bar are and how I know them and so on.

I made the switch for most of my internet names from seanich to icopythat.

I had jury duty.

I went on a bachelor party to Las Vegas... and I can't tell you anything.

I went to italy and some other places.

I had to clean out/kick out our cute but severely depressed roommate.

best buy.

I went to my brother's prom.

June was nice, and easy... june was a good month full of jobs and games. July was not as cool.

August... August was a blur. there was the spear dance party and midnight madness and office pirate shooting. And the wedding - which I don't even have a post about... weird.

In september I went to LA, and it seems I took more photos than wrote. But I did write a bit about my photography.

I went to the ... life changing... ? ... Eddie Addams Workshop. I only use the question mark because it hasn't been very long yet, but I feel like I learned more in one weekend than I could have in a year of grad school.

I thought I would write a novel this month, but I didn't. I did have a little internet fame, though.

Right now I am getting over a cold during the rain (6 out of the last 7 days) writing on my new powerbook.

There is a lot of stuff I want to do over this next year. I'll let you know when it happens. I'll try to write more of it down too, it seems that I just take a lot of pictures and use that as my visual diary. So, keep checking flickr too, and I'll make sure that you are up to date.

Internet Famous

every now and then I get a little internet fame. My friend Brian sent one of my photos and stories from flickr to a site called Digg. now, this is my first digg experience, but it seems that a lot of people read this page. A lot of readers mean a lot of comments.

Internet bulletin boards are hilarious. This is the best one I have been to because you don't actually have to sift through all of the idiots to get some good points and conversations - as you are reading you can vote on the comments, essentially hiding the dumb ones. You can change your reading preferences and and the comments that enough other people have voted for will change what you read.

anyway, as of right now, 27,406 people have viewed the photograph. (it goes up by about 200 every 5 minutes.)

Here is the photo page.

Here is the digg page.

enjoy, post an angry comment if you like. Mostly one hating me would be the best. I'm easy to hate.

I feel like crying...

Thats how fast my new computer is.

it runs aperture faster than my desktop.

it has one of those video camera iSight thingies. (seanich) on IM for those of you who are interested... I don't usually go on it anymore, but I may again.

I'm selling the old one, I don't know for how much yet.

oh baby, baby.
