"Dear brothers and sisters!
Dear enemies and friends!

Why are we all so alone here?
All we need is a little more hope, a little more joy.
All we need is a little more light, a little less weight, a little more freedom.
If we were an army, and if we believed that we were an army, and we believed that everyone was scared like little lost children in their grown up clothes and poses.
So we ended up alone here floating through long wasted days, or great tribulations.
While everything felt wrong.
Good words, strong words, words that could've moved mountains!
Words that no one ever said.
We were all waiting to hear those words and no one ever said them... and the tactics never hatched, and the plans were never mapped, and we all learned not to believe, and strange lonesome monsters loafed through the hills wondering why.
And it is best to never ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever wonder why!
So tangle - oh tangle us up in bright red ribbons!
Let's have a parade!
It's been so long since we had a parade, so let's have a parade!
Let's invite all our friends, and all our friends' friends!
Let's promenade down the boulevards with terrific pride and light in our eyes, twelve feet tall and staggering.
Sick with joy with the angels there, and light in our eyes.
Brothers and sisters, hope still waits in the wings like a bitter spinster.
Impatient, lonely and shivering, waiting to build her glorious fires.
It's because of our plans man; our beautiful ridiculous plans.
Let's launch them like careening jetplanes!
Let's crash all our planes in the river!
Let's build strange and radiant machines at this jericho waiting to fall!"

ps. please, can we just be human beings. can we forget the past, can we all tell eachother we are in pain. and everyone is in pain? and pain makes us beautiful, and perfect. can we do that?


March, on the lagoon.

well we we're successful once more on The Mosquito Lagoon. it seems after two years of dedicated fishing, and countless gallons of gasoline driving to the coast, the fishing gods have been rewarding us lately. i wouldn't go as far as sayin' that we know what we're doin' quite yet, but we're gettin' there.

if there's anyone who knows anything about the lagoon, we caught em on Shotgun Flats.. on the south side of Shotgun Pass (old channel).

bait shop.

me poling.

summer is comin' people! get fresh line on those rods, buy some tackle, and start payin' attention to the weather!


thought this was funny...

this is the pass I got on a shoot with Joe Lapeyra.

We did a dawn shot of the brand new Florida Hospital Lobby in Altamonte..

i just thought that photo was funny.


no, I didn't quit.

i'm back... I hopefully will be able to publish more frequently.. 'nuff with the twin peaks posts.. sorry about that. just wanted people to be inspired by words.


i know i've been talking about it forever, here it is.

Josh and I we're lucky enough to be invited to shoot in Montana for Ski-Doo.. Us floridians say skEE-Doo... in the west, and I assume everywhere else, they say skIH-Doo. it's funny..

I just have to say, no joke, Montana has been a place i've wanted to go ever since I first went out west. It had this mysticism about it, that i couldn't shake from my brain. I was so excited when we heard it was going to be Montana. We we're initially supposed to go to Logan, UT. But they hadn't gotten any snow for the year since we went early in the season (December), so they we're forced to move it to West Yellowstone, MT.

yea, the town really is that small. you see that small airport? that's Yellowstone's airport.. Ski-Doo rented out that entire airport for the production crews to base camp out of. it was insane.

josh took all these photos.

this photo was taken in the airport. you can see it in the background. ninja brett

we flew into Bozeman airport, which is actually in Belgrade, MT not Bozeman. We had lunch at this amazing place run by a couple hippies, who actually used to live in Orlando, and totally new about Lake Mary, and everything it was weird. They had amazing food, like straight up gourmet food, it was crazy. They didn't belong in Belgrade, MT that's for sure..

upon arrival we we're under the assumption that we would just tag along with some people on snowmobiles, and MAYBE get to drive one. but, no. we get there and they tell us we both, Josh and I, have our own snowmobiles for the week. we we're giddy with excitement, neither of us had ever driven one before. they are insanely fun.

anyway, it's beautiful out there.

here's some of me playing in the snow. snowmobiles are fucking awesome.

it was an amazing time... i didn't really take any photos worth looking at. it was really hectic assisting in the snow, and couldn't shoot.

hopefully we'll have some more adventures soon!


and one last Twin Peaks entry...

"Once upon a time there was a place of great goodness, called The White Lodge. Gentle fawns dappled there amongst happy laughing spirits. The sounds of innocence and joy filled the air. And when it rained, it rained sweet nectar that infused one's heart with the desire to live life in truth and beauty. Generally speaking, a ghastly place.. reeking of virtue's sour smell, engorged with the whispered prayers of kneeling mothers, drooling newborns, and fools! Young and old, compelled to do good without reason. But, i'm happy to point out, our story does not end in this wretched place of sacchar, in excess. For there is another place, its opposite, a place of almost unimaginable power, chock full of dark forces and vicious secrets. No prayers dare enter this frightful maw. Spirits there care not for good deeds or priestly implications, theirs' like to rip the flesh from your bone as greet you with a happy good-day! These spirits in this hidden land of unmuffled screams and broken hearts, will offer up a power so vast that its bearer may reorder the Earth itself to his liking. Now this place I speak of, is known as The Black Lodge, and I intend to find it." - Wyndom Earle


and some more twin peaks...

found this tonight while bored and looking online for a good resource of easy to find twin peaks quote and dialogue.

while i realize these quotes most likely don't mean anything to anyone who doesn't know anything about the series, i still like to share.

to the countless droves of people reading this blog... :/


one of the best ones on there, i had forgotten about.
