Thank you for the feedback on last weeks newsletter. I am glad people are into this idea and are excited to see where it goes. It seems the consensus is the name of this mailing-list/newsletter doesn't matter. I'm not going to call it anything officially. You'll just see my name and a date up top. You signed up to my mailing-list and you are getting a newsletter. Is this news?...I guess. Is this a letter?...Sorta. Is this something we should never talk about again? Yes.
Herkimer, The World's Largest Beetle
Colorado Springs, CO
Last year I had a photo shoot in Clovis, New Mexico. I decided to fly into Denver and drive to New Mexico so I could make a pit stop to see Herkimer in Colorado Springs on the way back. That wasn't a good idea for numerous reasons but it's too long of a story to get into.
Anyway, if you ever find yourself in Colorado Springs, there is absolutely no reason for you to find and or visit the World's Largest Beetle. Take a hike at the Garden of the Gods.

I just got copies of Andy Brennan's Uncultivated.
If you don't know Andy, he's the proprietor of Aaron Burr Cider, probably the best Apple Cidery in New York.
We met a few years ago for a photo shoot for DVEight Magazine and I'm happy to see this outtake make the cover of his book.
I've been leafing through the book the past week and it's a really excellent read. Definitely pick up a copy of this book if you are interested in apples and cider making.
*I was commissioned by DVEight Magazine to make this photo and then the photo was licensed by the book publisher for use on the cover. They sent me 6 copies of this book but I am not being paid to promote this.
This week I want to recommend the G-Drive mobile SSD* a fast and tiny hard drive.
I was working on a somewhat earnest review of this hard drive but then I realized how dumb and pointless it was. Listen, it's a tiny hard drive. I use it and it's never failed me. I have a number of them. I'm just amazed how small these things have gotten. What are these going to look like in 10 years? Are we first generation cyborgs? What have we become? What have we done!!!
*This is an associate link and if you click it and buy anything on amazon I get a small percentage.
Have you heard of Stitch Fix? I'd rather clean a bathroom than go to shopping for clothing. I've been wearing the same jeans and t-shirts for the past 4 years and I seriously needed some new shit. I heard an ad for this company so I decided to check it out. I actually like 25 percent of the things that they send me. That's worth not going to a store. If you are interested click the link and check it out. I get $25 you get $25 if you sign up.
That's it for now.
