CSN:AFU Week Twenty-Eight
I had a friend over for the weekend… and this thing totally slipped my mind until I after I had taken my sleeping aid last night. I was fading off watching Roeper from Ebert & Roeper dissect a documentary aboot people who obsess over Donkey Kong — apparently it’s Thumbs Worthy — when I took a look at my stats page and noticed someone had opened every Week In Review I’ve ever done. “That’s odd”, I thought, “I wonder if they liked this weeks… oh. Shit.”
I posted my first FTS Photo Graphic on this site. It’s something I’ll be doing here pretty often now although I’ll be keeping the Photo Graphic F.T.S. site open just to post personal photos — mostly it’ll be friends and weirdness. I also put up 26 images of flowers from local gardens on [my other blog]. The idea was people could choose which ones they wanted and I’d send them the large format version which they could print out and hang on their wall. Altogether a total of thirty-two people from Australia, Spain, Germany, England, Scotland, Canada, Chile, New Zealand and the United States asked for — and received — photos.

The Five Blogs I Visited Most This Week
This Week In General:
Yeah, so Sean was over for a couple… of days. We had a nice get-together with some friends… it was the first time Steve, Sean and I had been in the same room since 2002ish. Steve owns a brewery so the beer was plentiful, good and in jug form. Between last Sunday and Sean getting here on Saturday I did (pretty much) absolutely nothing except play with the computer.
I’ve been updating the backend of my blogs while learning new and interesting things to do with PhotoShop. I did get my haircut. But that was pretty much it…
This week I’ll be helping my step-father get the garage roof mostly done — everything but the tar paper and shingles. We’ll also be working at The Museum, we’re putting the roof on the porch. It’s the last big job before the grand opening next Spring. Everything else is finishing the painting, a few little electrical things and installing the display cases — which are being made by a local Master Carpenter. The Historical Society are getting displays ready now… hopefully they’ll have something to do with history.

CSN:AFU Monday’s Top Three News Stories
— August 20/07
Monday’s News Sometime Later: I’ve stopped taking this thing so seriously and it’s getting easier as a result, so it looks like the Monday News thing is a keeper. What’s making it easier is the whole “sometime later” philosophy I’ve adopted. It’s something I’ve practiced in other areas of my life, so it was probably inevitable I’d adopt it in here. Check out the thing aboot the fighter jets over my village… they were wicked cool.

As well as working as a reporter, I’ve also been shooting news photography for several years. A few weeks ago I started posting my photographs on another blog, but recently I’ve decided to make it a part of CSN:AFU instead. It’s basically aboot hoping to start conversations aboot photography, and maybe aboot the issues surrounding the photos. It’s also a continuation of a memory exercise I started on my other-other blog.
