it’s electric, boogie woogie, woogie

i snuck down to my hometown beach, Topsail (pronounced Tops’l) Beach, where i hung with family for a spell. there was an awesome lightning storm passing through one night and i grabbed my camera to snap a couple frames.

i came back inside and sat for a while and as the storm moved on through i set up a little time lapse. it wasn’t fully thought through. i should have done it from the very beginning, and there are a couple glitches where i had to make some adjustments – but ease up on me, dude – it was late and i was on vacation. gosh.

milkshakes and dog chow

i love milkshakes. when i’m home i never really get them enough so when i travel for jobs all that pent-up milkshake tension gets to me and i go berserk. when i’m on the road i always get one a day. sometimes two. occasionally i’ll get one for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. those days are my favorite. this job was 2 weeks worth of milkshakes in PA, IA, and AZ – that’s an awful lot of milkshakey goodness.

raquel sofia

she started as a backup singer for shakira and jean carlos canela but the limelight loved her too much for her to play second fiddle. raquel eventually signed with sony music, was featured in commercials, and was nominated for Best New Artist for the latin grammies. she’s got a great voice and a face to match. watch out for this one…

yandel

in 2005 i was in houston, tx for the summer and i got turned on to reggaeton music. especially a song called “mayor que yo” by the  collective named “mas flow.” i had no idea who these dudes were or what they were saying, but i would crank it up whenever it came on the radio and completely rock out. i’ve been a fan of reggaeton ever since. i don’t know what any of it means but i still get down.

a while back my friends at HBO asked me to go to puerto rico for a week and shoot the reggaeton singer yandel. hang out in PR with a dude who sings awesome music i love but don’t understand? count me in.

the bottom line is that yandel is one of the coolest dudes. he’s such a big name and is really successful – but despite his fame, and despite the fact that he had a crew of people all up in his business for a week solid, he was so chill and accommodating. just as nice as they come.

after the week was over i had a ton of pictures and yandel had a new fan – but i later found out i really wasn’t a new fan. when i got back to nyc i was at my desk doing an edit on the pictures and looked up the song, “mayor que yo” for a flashback desk-work dance party. i read a little about it, and get this: yandel was part of the mas flow collective that made that song! so i was a fan of yandel long before i was a fan of yandel. crazycakes…
