Hello there and welcome!  This blog officially begins on March 8th.  You can check the “About” link above for more information on who I am and what I plan to do with this blank canvas. Have a nice day!


Day 001 / Old Pack Praxinoscope

Well, today marks the first day of this crazy challenge as well as the first day of being a non-smoker.  So, in honor of my quitting day I decided to re-purpose all of the old packs lying on the passenger side floor of my car.  It’s a little makeshift zeotrope using cigarette packs as the […]


Day 002 / ORCTOPUS! Pt. 1

Unfortunately, I was only able to give a couple of hours of time to todays creative project.  The inspiration came near the end of the work day when I glanced over at a couple of co-workers who were looking at a picture of a creature on the internet.  It was called Sharktopus!   It’s coming […]


Day 003 / This Is Justin

Today I flew up to San Francisco for work.   I spent the whole day shooting at the Walt Disney Family Museum.  It was an epic day and my body is destroyed from it.  Anyways, I used to go to school out here and I decided to meet up with some old college friends.  Enter […]

Day 004 / Modular Patch #001

Day 005 / My First Cold Cathode

So, tonight I finally soldered together one of the many cold cathode tubes that I bought a while ago to use for light painting.  If you’ve never heard of light painting google it right now!  There are some absolutely amazing pictures out there.  I used this tutorial to get me along with the assembly process. […]


Day 006 / Creative Concertina Repair

I love figuring out good uses for old unused CD’s.  (Check out my zoetrope for another good use for old CD’s)  This is my concertina.  And actually I usually call it June’s concertina because she’s the one that I most enjoy playing it for.   Her face lights up when she hears it.   Anyways, […]


Day 007 / 30 Second Exposures of My Town

What a busy Saturday!   I had to work this morning until about 1pm then this evening my wife and I celebrated my old high school drama teachers retirement.   It was very much a reunion for me.    I got to see a lot of friends that I haven’t seen since my high school […]


Day 008 / ORCTOPUS! Pt. 2

I think this is becoming my favorite project so far.  The reason being, I would have never done something like this if it hadn’t been for this blog concept.  Jenny, my wife, even joined in and made a little clay cactus in a pot.   This time I took the Orctopus and started fresh on […]


Day 009 / A Dark Day

Today was a dark day.  On one end of the day a baby was born, and on the other, a great man we love was lost suddenly in an accident.   A shocking and sobering day.  Kiss and hug somebody that you know.


Day 010 / Characters In The Concrete

Yesterday was a tough day and today was the same.  I don’t feel comfortable going into too much detail out of respect for the people involved but as I mentioned in yesterdays post, a person who is very special to many of us at my office passed suddenly in an accident.  The atmosphere at the […]


Day 011 / Contact Mic Madness

So this should be interesting.  Right now you should be hearing three stereo contact mic recordings playing back simultaneously.  Hmm, how’s it sound?  I bought a couple contact mics over the internet recently and tonight was the first time I was able to test them out.  I used two contact mics for each recording.  One […]


Day 012 / Modular Patch #002 – Volta!

Volta is a pretty great invention in the world of modular synths.  While it turns the visceral experience of patching something from raw analog voltages into a slower more logistical experience, it makes the composing of music with the modular a much easier task.   Plus there’s nothing better than being able to bring that […]


Day 013 / Blender Revisited

Well, tonight I had to stay pretty late at work.  Luckily some of that time was spent rendering some after effects graphics, so I decided to revisit an old project from about a year ago in Blender 3D.   If you’re a fan of open source software Blender is the end all of open source […]


Day 014 / The Tulip Man

So today was a beautiful day.   The first day of spring, ironically.  I took June for a walk and decided to hit my neighbor up for an interview.  He’s known as “The Tulip Man”.  I’d noticed the crowds that gathered in front of his house last year and it was all very intriguing at […]


Day 015 / Business Class, Baby

I’m traveling to London this week for work and it just so happened that by chance I got to travel business class.  Well, what a different experience it was.   I arrived at the airport with my co-worker Ted and we went directly into the business class lounge where they handed us two free drink […]


Day 017 / A Special Day Indeed

Today was truly a special day.  The story begins a good while ago, before I started this blog.  I was perusing the dust-breeding blog and I came across this music box in one of mapmap’s posts.  I thought it was so ingenious I decided to google it to find out where I could get one […]


Day 018 / Zoom-Lee

Today I went to work on the set and left around 7pm.  Unfortunately, I’m unable to show you anything from what I’m working on out here because it’s sensitive and I’d get in trouble if I posted anything from it.   Nevertheless, sometimes what I’m doing on the set is half as interesting as what’s […]


Day 020 / Sample Manipulation

Today I flew back from England and happily got to see Jenny and June.  It was nice to see the two ladies in my life again.  Today’s creative thing is about sample manipulation.   This evening I worked on my song for the MCRP.  I’ve been involved in something called MCRP (Monome Community Remix Project) […]


Day 021 / A Stab at Watercolor

Today I decided to give a solid go at watercolor.  I bought the materials a while ago for this blog idea specifically but I haven’t gotten around to using them until now.   I have never used watercolor before and I purposely stayed away from buying any books on it or researching techniques on the […]


Day 022 / That Monumental Moment

Tonight was that monumental moment for Jenny, my wife, when for todays creative project, I asked her to teach me how to knit.     Needless to say, if it weren’t for this blog the moment may have never come, but here I am tonight, knitting away.  All I can say is…DAMN, that stuff ain’t […]


Day 023 / Ghosts From The Underground

One of the nights I spent in London I had planned to take some pictures of the tube station and post them along with a field recording for my creative thing the day.  Instead I met Zoom-Lee and decided to change my plan.  But initially, I did happen to get some pretty nice images of […]


Day 024 / Looking Down On A Beautiful Sunset

I flew up to Oakland to work today.  It seems like the traveling has been unending lately but the truth is that this will be the last trip for a while.  Tomorrow, it’s back to editing for me.  I’m actually looking forward to getting back to the old routine.   So today I filmed a […]
