Backlighting A Computer Desk

Backlighting A Computer Desk

Ever since I moved into my apartment a number of years ago, I’ve been relying on an old desk lamp as my office light. Since the entire apartment has absolutely no ceiling lights (whyyyyyyyyyyy), it was all I had at the time. Laziness prevailed and it remains in place to this day. The problem I…

Jolene Does Dallas – Part 1

Jolene Does Dallas – Part 1

The year was 2015. After spending four years in the Philadelphia area, I started running out of new places to explore that were within a day’s travel. Finances were never in my favor and work distracted from the fact that I actually had vacation days to use. I started to feel like that was the…

Worlds End and Hurricane Irene

Worlds End and Hurricane Irene

I’ve been going through my backlog of raw video – only a mere decade’s worth – and decided to use the footage from my trip up to Worlds End in 2014 for a quick video. Back in 2011, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee (am I even supposed to capitalize that) slammed into the Loyalsock…
