Adobe Photoshop Lightroom For Sale


Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.0 (Win/Mac) [OLD VERSION]

Anyone want to buy a copy? It was just sent to me, brand new and sealed, never installed or registered. I won it, but I’ve already got access to it at school, and I could use money for film and expenses. 200 or best offer. Send me an email at ian@ianaleksanderadams.com if you’re interested.

Oh, while I’m at it, I’ve also got a few comics in case anyone wants them. Hellblazer: Joyride, Dangerous Habits, Reasons to Be Cheerful, and Red Sepulchre and the first book of Lucifer (I’ll throw in the Lucifer Nirvana one shot if you’d like). Ten bucks each. All only read once, like new.

We’re pretty busy over here finishing up Beth’s portfolio and getting the basics of her website ready. It should be online by next week. It’s unfortunate that a lot of her paintings are in storage or hanging in other states, so we can’t get good copy work of them. We do have plenty of things that have never seen the light of the internet before. I can’t help it, I’m more than a little excited to see it all come together.

Petshops and CMYK


I’ve been asked to post a guest blog for CMYK Magazine. You can click here to see the posts I’ve put up so far. The deadline for submission for the next magazine contest is August 6th, so you’ve still got some time to submit if you’ve been thinking about it.

Here’s a totally unrelated picture:

Outside Z’s House


My back is getting a little better, but I’m still not at the top of my game. I’ve got a little news for people hoping to see my Israel show up at the Bean, though. It’s been extended a little bit since the next person needs a little more time. So you can see it till the 4th, at least, and maybe till the 8th of August.

I just got a message on facebook from one of the guards that was with us on the trip, Dror. It seems he’s touring the east coast. He might visit, so I’m hoping he gets to see the show while it’s up.

Andrea and Justin and Pains in the Back


Missed a day back there. Sorry about that. Yesterday I woke up and felt like I’d been doing heavy lifting all night – my lower back was in serious pain. It’s a bit better today, but yesterday I had to sit in bed for most of the day. Beth helped me ice it and gave me a little home remedy. I’m trying to be a little bit more productive today, but I have to take it easy. I got up from bed to go brush my teeth and I couldn’t see for a second because it hurt so much. Really surprised me.  Ah well.

Crises Brings Opportunity


I wanted to take a quick break and plug an important renewed initiative for clean energy in the USA. Cheaper transportation, cleaner air and water, and general sustainability – these are some of the things I think everyone should be able to get behind.

This afternoon I received a mailing from MoveOn and decided it was something worth passing on. Ever since the 2000 elections, I get a lot of mailings from many political groups, from ACLU and the EFF, to Factcheck and other anti-spin sources, to Greenpeace and Planned Parenthood. I admit that since I get one almost every day, most I just quickly skim. It’s not asking for money and as far as their emails go it’s relatively apolitical.  In the past, MoveOn supported petitions have helped stop or pass laws, so it isn’t just going to sit on the internet (like your favorite petition asking for a Star Control sequel – see how I snuck that in there?) Here’s the complete letter:

Dear MoveOn member,

Al Gore took a big risk when he called on us to get 100% of our electricity from cheap, clean sources within 10 years.

It’s an achievable goal, but it’s already under attack from the oil and coal companies. They’re calling his plan unrealistic, impossible, and crazy.1

We’re in a crisis. If this is the fate of any new idea to get us out of this crisis alive, we’re toast. Gore’s challenge will live or die on the reaction of people like us.

We can turn back Big Oil’s attack if hundreds of thousands of us personally endorse Gore’s challenge to power our country with 100% cheap, clean energy within 10 years—and then we urge Obama, McCain, and Congress to get on board.

Clicking here will add your support to Gore’s challenge:

http://pol.moveon.org/gorechallenge/o.pl?id=13294-2856754-bXTXSCx&t=3

The petition says: “America must commit to producing 100% of our electricity from cheap, clean renewable energy sources, like solar and wind, within 10 years.”

Exposure Therapy Public Release


Exposure Therapy - Alexi 768544

alexi768544.com

After four months, this project is finally “done.” I’m sure there will be some minor tweaks to the documentation and some troubleshooting of the web files, but for the most part, the project is complete.

After you’ve clicked through the maze-like website a bit, you can read the entire documentation here, including online class discussion and comments by people who found the information while the performance was ongoing.

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.
