    Some thoughts on binge television and the novel


    Image from RENEGADE CINEMA

    My first thought on watching Season 4 of Arrested Development was, “Oh my god oh my god it’s finally here oh my god.”

    My second thought was, “This reminds me of Confederacy of Dunces.”

    Like John Kennedy Toole’s comic masterwork, AD S4 switches back and forth …

    If you don’t know this ad, it’s a famous VW ad called “Think Small.”

    We Review "The Great Gatsby" Movie


    In this vlog, Kyle and I give our thoughts on “The Great Gatsby,” out in theaters now. We had to film this vlog three times because for some reason, our camera (we were using a Canon 7D) would stop recording every now and then. So that was a pain.

    It’s …

    Final Project: My People


    When I first approached this topic, my initial impression of “my people” was my ancestors. I pictured old black-and-white and sepia photos of unsmiling immigrants. Those are the people from which I descend and to which I feel very connected in many ways. But these aren’t people I can photograph …

    Athletes (My People)


    To match the theme, I decided to do a slideshow comprised of pictures of professional athletes and myself I’ve met over the past few months. I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to possibly play professional football and that is really heavy on my mind right now as the draft is …

    Photo Essay: "My People"


    My photo essay titled “My People” is a reflection of the people I care most about in their natural state. I did not tell any of them how to pose, or to pose at all. I wanted to convey their true essence and their true feeling, so I told them…
