I went to a schmancy sporting store today (my fault) and the only bike locks they had were $85 and $65. Is this normal? Mine is cute but not some $2K Dutchie. Can someone recommend a particular one? How much should it cost?

Of course there are no other options!

Because I ate it.
me: Yeah, I just lost mine.
to the people
To the folks who sent me notes about buying prints, etc., thanks for the emails. I am moving most of the stuff to the new joint and will assess exactly what i’m using there and then contact y’all up. I just ran out of time to have people down here to come pick it up, etc. so I figured that would be easier. Thanks muchly!
So, I am moving on Thursday, up to the West Loop. I think it will be a nice fit for me, more condusive to social gatherings, and I simply cannot tell you how excited I am to have a washer and dryer in unit and a lovely roof, and to be within just blocks of several of my favourite bars and restaurants. That said, there is a lot I will miss about Pilsen. Just now, one of the two ice cream trucks...

Booking my hotel/etc for an event I’m shooting in Minnesota. I will probably just stay at a typical little holiday inn because I am cheap and it is convenient, but how lovely is this place? I get jealous of all the husband/wife and BFF teams—would be fun to roll into town with someone you adore and stay somewhere awesome every time.

Sexually transmitted crazy mouth is the best thing I’ve heard. And so accurate in many cases. Dealbreaker!

I got the 5D MkII. It is pretty sweet. I really love the video component and think I will have a lot of fun with it (how much for business remains to be seen). I could never understand camcorders, but it’s very intuitive for me to take video using an actual camera. Aside from that, the camera appears pretty fantastic otherwise, too. Very crisp images. New screen is awesome. The ISO...
i am thinking about getting an intern. i worked about 14 hours today and haven’t had a proper meal, and it’s pretty clear to me that I will at least need a pinch of help this summer in order to pursue some other broader business developments/plans I want to realize (if I was just doing the weddings I would probably be fine, but I have too many other tangentially-related entrepeunerial...
