If I were a dance club DJ

A few CD mixmaker and collector sent me 2 CDs that inspired this mix. For a while I have been thinking up a total dance mix to start off the new year.
 Now if I were a Dance club DJ would these tracks go over well even though they are a little older? good dance songs never age right?

after Jonas

so We did get 2 feet of snow but Hopefully it will remain in the 30s and 40s tempature wise so we don't need to worry about icy roads
 Last night I did Capture a beautiful full moon from my bedroom window

I also got 2 nice shots of the sunset this afternoon.

So last night I set up another blog over at tumblr that would be totally dedicated to my photography but I reset my password twice because it keeps telling me the one I typed in is wrong
screw tumblr i'm staying with blogger.
Tumblr. you stink!

I jinxed it!

This Morning I had Breakfast with my Moms 2 closest friends, Helene and Paula. We went to the OB Diner and they treated me to Pancakes. We were talking about how this winter has been kinda mild thus far.
When I got home I was on the computer for a while and then took a nap.
When I woke up it was snowing. I grabbed my camera to see if I could get any cool photos of the snow covered Branches.
Hold on..
Did I jinx the good weather by saying how mild its been?
Oh well here's a few photos

mid January Random Blog

Already folks
This blog has no them, its just random stuff on my mind.
When I go into a local shop to film I usually ask if its OK. Sometime I get a no. Some folks get this look on there face like I'm going to do oral surgery on them.
Perhaps I should just explain its just for my youtube channel.
One of the latest no's sadly came at a cool antique store I went to
Canvas house antiques had some cool stuff in there including this very colorful vase.

 They let me take stills though. They can a small room filled with cloths and albums on the floor. I did sneak in a few seconds filming there! the albums were all under $5.00 each and the price sticker were on the inside of the record and not smack dab on the middle of the album cover! I didn't get albums for me because I have do CDs but I went to get some for a record collector who I will not mention because she night read this.
My creative motor started again and this is what it is

Its seems my level of creativity is the highest in January and February when it comes to making CD mixes probably because those are the months I'm stuck inside! This year has started off OK in that respect but I think old man winter will stick around longer now.

Today the wind out of the north was brutal and when I got home from work the inside of the house was 52 degrees which means the draft from the wind brew out thepilot light on my furnace! Dan got it going again though. Yay Dan!

Things I'd like to do in 2016

A new year
New start
New Plans
Recently my Friend James Dalton and I shared each others visions for the new year and both vowed to keep them under wraps until things are settled with various  construction projects in and around Bay Head are completed. I told him he's included in my vision and he told be I'd be included in his!
Teamwork man!
 That aside here are a few others things I have in store
 More Video Tours of local places and perhaps a few interviews too. I thought my video tour at Gordons surf Shop went well.
 I hope to get better surfing videos at the beach and I hope to get some footage at a local skate park too.
 I would like to get a couple of local photographers together to lunch in the spring and share thoughts and ideas on taking photos!
 I hope to get a few more DJ gigs too.
Of course I'll resume to job at the beach in the summer and hopefully be in better shape because I also hope to returning to walking for exercise. The community park is perfect for just that. I'll start out with  doing 4 laps which is half a mile. A nice start.
OK here are my last Christmas related shots until next year!
