My obsession with chasing the fog on Mount Tamalpais over the last 18 months comes together in this 90 second timelapse video. One and half years of foggy sunrises and sunsets just north of San Francisco, CA. When the conditions were right, I would be up and out the door by 4:00 in the morning to make the 45-minute drive and 30-minute hike up Mt. Tam to be setup for the sunrise. In the evenings I would race home from work, grab my gear, and head back out, often running down the trail with a backpack full of gear to be just in time for sunset. In the end, it seemed like the easy part was the endless hours of hiking in the dark and lugging gear around the mountain. Processing thousands of photos and learning how to edit them all together was the real challenge, but now, I have finally completed my first short timelapse film. I hope you enjoy it, as I enjoyed making it!

The Twin Peaks sign, by day and by night. Twin Peaks opened in 1935 and has been operating as a gay bar since 1972. I believe it is SF’s oldest continually operating gay bar, and it’s said to be the first gay bar in the country to have a windowed façade, allowing patrons to see out and be seen in a time when homosexuality was criminalized and heavily policed. It’s still a great place to hang out in the Castro! 🌈

Artists were supposed to take on what the future may look like after the election (dystopia? utopia?) - Here’s my take. Doesn’t matter who wins. We’re gonna live in cramped spaces, not care much about our surroundings, and we’ll neglect things, but it’s fine, because we have the latest and greatest tech devices to spend our days in.
…Is this the future, or basically how I live right now? haha
So here’s the story: At the beginning of the show, Luke asked us if we wanted to be addressed as San Francisco or Mountain View. He took a vote by screams and SF won. Later on we kept screaming for them to sing San Francisco. Michael made us a deal that if we could be the loudest city, then they would play San Francisco. They blessed us with this beautiful, intimate acoustic version.
