The iPad Portfolio Era Begins…

As some of you already know, the past couple of months have had me furiously redesigning my current website with the folks at APhotoFolio.com and yesterday Rob Haggart, Mr. APhotoFolio himself, informed me that they have become the first photography website company to deliver custom designed iPad sites, built using HTML5, for all of their customers. Check it out…

A Photo Folio – First To Deliver iPad Sites

As I sit here resizing TIFFS down to JPEGs for my new site, I hafta wonder if the next thing I’m gonna be doing is purchasing a carload of iPads to act as my portfolios?!! Given how labor intensive, not to mention expensive, printed portfolios can be, having everything on an iPad just might make sense! I dunno…it’s all very early in the game, but if I can get over not having a printed book of BIG prints to show an art director, who knows?!!

And now, here’s a quick look at a sample page from my new website, which will be up as soon as I finish resizing those damned JPEGs…

Hey Kids…It’s a Two-Fer Tuesday today on The List!

Paul Banks, Carlos Dengler, Sam Fogarino and Daniel Kessler…those Joy Division-lovin’, dark-minded boys in the dark-colored suits otherwise known as Interpol…are back in the studio and they just leaked ‘Lights’, a song that takes more than two minutes before it really gets going, but then majestically builds up a theatrical momentum and ultimately sounds like it could be the opener off of their as yet unnamed new album. Now don’t get me wrong, I really like this, but I think the boys might hafta sit down with The Killers and work out some royalty payments, ‘cuz from where I’m standin’ they straight-up lifted the opening riff from The Killers song, “All the Pretty Faces”, and used it and the plodding hook that carries this song!!!

Think I’m wrong…take a listen…..

So…am I crazy?!! Maybe, but remember…if there’s a lawsuit, you heard about it here first!
