Dave Matthews Band

Dave Matthews

After trying for years I finally got in to shoot Dave Matthews Band. And it was everything I expected. Dave took note during the Saturday night introductions that Jiffy Lube Live was the last venue they played with late saxophonist LeRoi Moore (well, back in 2008 was Nissan Pavilion). Click below for more photos.

Brunch at Bearnaise

Florentine Bennie

We were recently invited to a sample brunch at Spike Mendelsohn‘s French eatery Béarnaise on Capitol Hill. New summer specials greeted us as we sampled the bottomless mimosas and learned about Spike’s upcoming plans for new locations, new TV shows, and a secretive speakeasy.

In addition, I got to shoot some of the races, including the Preakness run, in which California Chrome (pictured above) won. Click below for more coverage.

Podcast: Airhogs Hypertrax vs Hyper Actives 5


The all terrain Air Hogs Hypertrax battles out against the flippable Hyper Actives 5, watch our video to see which ones our testers preferred.

The Hypertrax features all-terrain treads to get over almost any obstacle, and a slim enough body that if it ends up upside-down, it can keep going. For young, inexperienced RC drivers, this car is perfect for just zipping around and getting used to steering. I like that the remote and charger are self-contained, however I have found that because the AA batteries are charging the car and the remote, it drains quickly. It takes a little over 20 minutes to charge up the vehicle, and then it drives for about 10 minutes.

The Hyper Actives 5 features a motorized wheel on top, assisting in any flip-overs. It has a bit more power (and it’s own AA powersource) so it’s going to win races, but it works best on asphalt or other smooth surfaces, it got a little hung up in the grass.

IMG_1142
The LEGO Movie: Everything is Awesome Edition (Blu-ray + DVD + UltraViolet Digital HD + Vitruvius minifigure + Collectible 3D Emmet photo + Bonus 3D movie) will be available on June 17th!!


I’ve been waiting to hear about the release date for the Lego Movie, at one time assuming it would be a big Easter basket gift, but as of Easter, there hadn’t even been a date announced. Well the wait is over. You have just about two months of partial-awesomeness to wait. Then, everything is awesome.

Available on Blu-ray, DVD, and the Everything is Awesome edition that comes with the Vitruvius minifig and bonus content. Click below to pre-order on Amazon.

It does not appear that the 3D version of the feature will be released at this time.

Christina Perri at 9:30 Club

Christina Perri

Christina Perri performed at 9:30 Club last night in DC. The crowd skewed mostly female, but I wasn’t complaining. Perri certainly has the chops. She seemed genuinely excited to be here in DC and performing for us. Check out my pics below.

Christina Perri

Christina is not quite halfway through a nationwide tour, and she’s showing no signs of exhaustion or boredom. She took quite a few opportunities to chat with the crowd and make us feel like we were at a party she was hosting, and she couldn’t wait to share some new (and favorite) songs with us.

You have of course heard (and can maybe sing) Jar of Hearts and probably Arms. I did notice the males in the audience clammed up when she performed A Thousand Years which is most famous for appearing in one (or more?) of the Twilight movies. The crowd was intensely mellow (is that possible? I just thought it sounded funny) and everyone there was riding the same vibe.
