35 Year High School Reunion ?!

Well it finally came to the big night this past Saturday. Been going to these reunion committee meetings for a year now.  
The night was a raging success. Lots of old friends there - a good time had by all.  

Here's just a few of the hundreds of photos taken that night.

 Kim, Stacey and Vicki getting ready to welcome ex-classmates..

Here's your reunion committee . . .

Group photo attempt. Most of us, anyway.

Dancing!  Soul Train Line Style. 

More dancing. kinda.  photos of dancing usually suck, i think.  (Notice me in the background "getting down" as they say.) 

Ken stares down the camera as Ruth barefoots.

Me & Vicki Miller, my old tennis partner!

Myself and Dave seen here behind the mix board, pulling the strings.

Four of the crazier ones in our class.  Kelly, Carrie, Ruth & Janie.

Yours truly trying to keep the dance floor full.

The Millerizer 360

The Millerizer 360 is complete! Using a Brinks mini timer for a motor we can now shoot timelapse WHILE Panning. Of course we'll be using the 7D's, not the camera shown here. total cost: ~ $5.
A bit more fragile than I had hoped, we may be able to remedy this with a small amount of reinforcement.

Palm Springs Fine Arts Fair

Palm Springs was a smashing success as they say.
Met a bunch of great folks. Screened Uso Justo to a less than packed house but for those who came, they dug it and also bought DVD's for later laughs. The Q&A with Daniel Stern was excellent. Informative and funny. Afterwards we had a great dinner with some fun locals.
Also sold one of my sculptures at the fair. I LOVE these things and they're starting to catch on. And get better. Or so I say.
Ed sold a couple of his big paintings so me and Tom (the local carpenter we hired) went over and hung it in their home the next day.
Definitely a wealthier crowd than I am used to hanging i said in the q&a I saw a few folks at the opening party whose eyeglasses cost more than I made last year.
Literally true.

Check this one out. Am showing a film in Palm Springs followed by a Q&A with the actor Daniel Stern. Looking forward to it.
Also been twisting up a bunch of small kinetic pieces and making leaps and bounds etc. here's a couple of pix although you need to see 'em move to get the full on effect.
