Sony A9 2.JPGIf 10 years ago someone had told me that Sony would be competitive in the professional photography world, directly competing with the likes of Canon and Nikon, I would not have believed them. I think the most surprising thing is how they are doing this; not with the traditional DSLR, but instead with full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.

Independence Day Resurges

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎07-21-2016 03:40 PM (1,123 Views)

Independence Day Resurgence.jpgIn 1996, Earth was invaded by extraterrestrials whose chief weapons were the cliches and tried-and-true tropes of science fiction. Gigantic spaceships positioned themselves over Earth’s major cities (Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke’s seminal novel of 1953). The aliens were discovered by the detection of a seemingly interstellar broadcast (John Varley’s superior 1977 novel The Ophiuchi Hotline and Carl Sagan’s brilliant Contact). They were biomechanical in nature (Ridley Scott’s classic Alien). They had a gazillion fighters (every Star Wars movie) and impenetrable electromagnetic shields (Star Trek, but only here and there, really). They did not come in peace (every invasion movie in human history, except Steven Spielberg’s amazing Close Encounters of the Third Kind). They were defeated by a computer genius with a Macbook that greeted him with “Hello Dave” (Arthur C. Clarke again in Stanley Kubrick’s singular 2001: A Space Odyssey). In short, way back when Independence Day came out and I saw it for the first time, I left the theater feeling like I’d seen it before.

Frankenstein

Halloween is nearly upon us and all the little ghouls and goblins – and the big ones too – are making plans for costume parties and Trick-or-Treating. It’s a festive time of year to be sure. The trees are bedecked in the blazing colors of autumn or bare as a skeleton’s bones, scraping the turbulent sky with their gnarly fingers. It’s a time of year that fires the imagination and captures the essence of our nightmares and fears, all in a single chilling night.

The ShiningIt’s October, which for me means an obsession with anything and everything Halloween related. Horror movies, costumes, haunted houses - all sorts of spooky things! Recently, I made a visit to The Stanley Hotel. Yes, the hotel that inspired Stephen King’s The Shining. As an avid Stephen King fan, I was extremely excited but quite unprepared as I only had my smartphone on hand to do any ghost hunting (which only led to some pretty terrible photos). I can think of several devices that would have come in handy while I was there, as they do encourage and welcome ghost hunting.

Avengers: Age of UltronWith all the super hero blockbusters coming out these days, I think it’s safe to say that the love of comic books has gone mainstream. While it may not be the actual comics that people are celebrating, their influence on our culture is hard to ignore.

The HobbitSeptember 22nd is the Birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two Hobbits from Hobbiton in the Shire. Both of these “Halflings” set out on great adventures through the lands of Middle Earth as they fought the forces of evil- saving the world in the process. After a multitude of books, comics, games, and movies, both of these characters have earned a place in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. For this special day, I thought I would tell my history with Bilbo, Frodo, and their creator- J.R.R. Tolkien.

Pre-Order Pitch Perfect 2

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎09-18-2015 11:15 AM (967 Views)

Pitch Perfect 2Every Thanksgiving after we’ve gorged our faces with delicious food, my family likes to go see the latest blockbuster hit. I wasn’t all that thrilled at first, because when we started this recent tradition, we decided to go see Pitch Perfect. To be honest, I thought it looked a little gimmicky and I didn’t want to see it, but since spending time with my family outweighed this concern, I went along with it. To my surprise, I fell in love with the acapella world and the witty, quirky humor of the Barden Bellas (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson). You can imagine then when Pitch Perfect 2 was announced, I was ecstatic!

EOS Rebel T5 DSLRTaking a family photo was always an adventure for us. It began by rushing around trying to find everybody and gather them together in one room. The next step was finding an area that everybody could fit in and not look too crammed, perhaps the big couch or in front of the big tree in the front yard if the weather was nice. Once everyone was gathered, the real chore began. We would stand still as my father hunched over the camera set up a few feet away. Every few seconds he would spin a knob or flip a lever with the look of a mad scientist, calculating all the factors to get perfect exposure. After what seemed like an eternity he would push a button and sprint towards us. If we were lucky enough for him to make it back to his spot before the camera picked up his movement, we would only have to repeat the process 4 or 5 more times. If not, the agony of the family photo would continue until we got it right.

Vacation Week - Going to the Cabin

 Cooler.jpgI haven’t been out to the family cabin this year, but I have some fond memories of going out on the lake and grilling with the family. I remember one year where we ended up having so much fun that we made the decision to stay outside all night around the campfire and tell those stereotypical ghost stories. My sister was absolutely terrified the entire night, but it was so much fun just being out with friends and family without the pressures of real life getting in the way.

Vacation Week- Gadgets for Flying

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎07-22-2015 07:00 AM (4,421 Views)

iPad Air

I’ve always loved to travel. I think it’s because when I was a little girl my parents would pack us up in what I now call the “truckster” and we would embark a on a 3 day road trip to Mexico to see my family. I didn’t mind the long hours because I always had my Sony Walkman with me to listen to my favorite tunes, and a good book. Nowadays I’m not as patient sitting for so many hours, so I enjoy flying a lot more.  I’ve been on short flights, for example to Chicago, and long ones like Sweden and Argentina. While short flights are over before you can even finish the drink you are given, I dread the long 15+ hour flights; therefore, I always make sure to take some gadgets along with me to keep me busy. Here are my favorites.

Apparently they are not just my favorite as waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Scandinavia, United States, with over a dozen regional varieties in Belgium alone. I was also surprised to discover that they have been around since the 14th century! People used waffle irons to cook them, and the waffle iron plates were made in different shapes/designs . Nowadays you can find waffle makers everywhere, and they still come in many sizes and shapes. Let’s explore the different waffle makers we offer!

Cole HaanAs is customary for Minnesota, spring did not arrive until later in the season, and May has brought more showers than April, so it looks like June will bring the flowers this year. Besides looking forward to spring and summer weather, I look forward to the new colors introduced for the seasons. Designers did not disappoint this year, and I absolutely love the mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals that you see in clothing and accessories. They chose colors like aquamarine, scuba blue, toasted almond, strawberry ice, and marsala to name a few. These tones invoke thoughts of oceans, sand, and nature. They give us that little escape from our busy schedules and help soothe our senses.
