Colonial Michilimackinac Photo Series

Colonial Michilimackinacis a 1770s-era fort and fur trading village and ongoing archaeological dig. The village boasts 13 authentically reconstructed buildings, interactive displays, open hearth cooking, crafts, and cannon and musket firings. I loved walking around, it felt like being transported back in time! It’s only moments away from our next stop, Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse!

Don’t Tread on Me: EMI, UMG & WMG

I woke this 4th of July and checked on the video that took me hours to upload with my crappy internet connection and I had been hit by the big three. EMI I can assume was mad that I lifted a fitting Spice Girl’s song to the opening of my documentary about women in the […]

Turtles, Manatees and BP, “OIL, MY!”

I don’t care about the series finale of “Lost.” I don’t return the glances and rabid white teeth of celebrities at the cash register. I don’t watch much reality television, in fact, I canceled cable a few months ago and never looked back. I find that even without my daily dose of 24-hour ticker-vision, 2 […]

Discos and Ragoons

No, that is not a type-o. No, I am not Chinese. Chinese American food is not Chinese. Fortune cookies are not Chinese. Children of Chinese immigrants are not Chinese, they are Chinese-American but I am not Chinese so this is not a matter that concerns me at all. What concerns me is simply and feverishly […]

Iraq War Forum: Five Year Anniversary in Iraq

I attended the Vets for Freedom Iraq war forum in order to learn from the firsthand experiences of those who have served in the military. I feel it is important since being a soldier is a completely different experience from my own. I’ll admit to being a little bit of a dreamer. I hold signs […]
