Alamo Bowl Coverage & Happy New Year

I need a faster laptop, that’s all there is to it. After I copied all of my shots from the Alamo Bowl over from my cards, I had about 1200 images to sort through and edit, which is usually no big deal; it’s par for the course in this game.

That kind of load is no problem for my G5; I can just rip right through them. Last night, however, I was working with my old G4 PowerBook, and it was really slowing me down. Oh well, when next I have 3500.00 burning a hole in my pocket, I’ll slide a new MacBook Pro into my bag.

As for the Alamo Bowl, I thought it went over well. Got some good shots for WireImage, although it took me longer to get them uploaded than I would have liked.

I also want to wish everyone a happy new year, and all that rot. You know, the standard holiday cheer. I hope everyone who reads my blog – all seven of you now – finds prosperity in 2007, and if you do, please send some of it my way as well. Har-har.  Leica M8s for all!

Oh, what the hell, I guess I can wish for prosperity for all
