This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

Spiffy Old Photos: Ice Storm 2007

old stuff

It’s time once again for me to bring you Spiffy Old Stuff – aka the blog where I showcase something you may have never seen before. (There’s a cool Table of Contents if you miss any of these, by the way!)

I’m not going to pretend that it’s always easy to find something worth – um, I mean choosing from all the, uh, amazing stuff I have stacked up here. *cough*. In the interest of trying to keep things kind of even I think it’s going to be some….


One of these days I need to scan off some real old pics! My online albums only go back to 2005, and until mid-2007 or so I had a horrible little camera, so I rarely took any photos. However, the ice storm in January of 2007 was worth photographing, bad camera or not. And I feel the need to share them with you, no matter how low the image quality. Yay!

This storm is the one that absolutely RUINED all of our trees:

These are not black and white photos, there was just no color anywhere! It was so odd!

We spent a week with no electricity:

Then, the sun came out!

It was kind of like coming outside after a tornado and goggling at all the damage.

Wasn’t that spiffy and exciting?

Song playing at the moment – “The Royal We” – Silversun Pickups (I am listening to my ultimate amazing playlist :) )

(PS. This is blog number 662. Only three more to think of something really spiffy in! the pressure is too much!)
