I welcome you to the 49 states of America

Well at the rate I edit and upload videos, you’d be waiting another two weeks to get the next one. Valerie and I just talk so much and they end up being very looooong videos. And people have very short attention spans, so it takes a while to edit them. So I’ll entertain you with an update on our lives. Because lets be honest, I know you’ve all been on the edge of your seat wondering what these wild and crazy girls have been up to. 

I’ll tell you,

For the past several weeks, we’ve been editing our photos like there’s no tomorrow. I know I’ve said that before, but it really is very laborious. After scanning all day, I usually have one or two rolls of 35mm done. Double that if its 120 film. And I shot 98 rolls of film.

But we’ve also had an exciting and promising last few weeks as well.

If you’ve typed in www.kodakkerouacs.com you’ve already noticed that Valerie and I got our website up (woo hoo!)
It took longer than it should have; neither one of us were successful at persuading a graphic designer to help us so we panicked for awhile until we finally made a good site.
But in the end, I think it was worth all the stress and nail biting. We now look professional!! Don’t worry, we still don’t act professional.
When you look at it (and I know you will, because you love our photos and can’t wait to see more) you will notice that not all of our work is up yet. It will be. Soon.

We also had a meeting with a reporter from Creative Loafing. If you don’t have one in your city, it’s an alternative newspaper that is free (awesome, who doesn’t like free?) and basically showcases cool local people, places, and things. Like musicians or artists (Hey thats us!)

She liked us a lot.
-Who doesn’t?
Hopefully we’ll have something in the works in October. She would publish us now, but the DNC is coming to our town in September so every newspaper, website, magazine, television station, and strip club owner is obsessed with the influx of politicians, interns, and future Monica Lewinskies.
Should make for some good photos ops though…

As for today, Valerie and I are going out exploring. We realized that neither one of us has ever designed a book, and if its anything like a website then we have some researching to do. It really only involves going to book stores and looking at other photography books, but I believe there will be coffee involved. We’re aiming to have that together, published and printed by September, October by the latest.

Yes, its ambitious. But thats how we roll.

Balls to the wall.

Here’s a little something to keep your satisfied til we get another Camera Talk video up. Please don’t take offense Shannon.

    What?! You don’t have U-turn lanes in other-America? What’s wrong with this country? LOL

    Not offended in the slightest, my lovely little lost ladies. I love our U-turn lanes. We Texas drivers (and out stupid one-way access lanes) are constantly missing our turn and having to (guess what?) TURN AROUND. I bow to the silly bonehead who came up with U-turn lanes (and Tom Delay probably got the $$ for them…hey, he was a crook, but he was crook for US, dammit).

    Woo hoo! I do bitch about the flatness of it all near Houston though…

    Just wait until you visit Michigan and encounter your first “Michigan left.” Suddenly it’ll be the 48 states of America.
