GeneralsJoes is on Facebook!

I’ve had my own personal Facebook page for a while now, and have been toying with getting the site on it’s own page as well, but didn’t want to do it until I could do it right.

And in light of recent security worries about Facebook, I figured this was the perfect time to reveal even more about myself than ever before.  Whatever you do, don’t click on the link called “Bank Account Information” in my profile.  Trust me, it’s nothing important.  :shifty:

I’ve created a GeneralsJoes “Fanpage” which will automatically feed all of my WordPress blog posts straight into it, and it appears to work fairly seamlessly.  Eagle eyed readers probably saw me tearing my hair out tonight while I tested it.  I’m using a pretty cool plug in, but you can only test it by actually publishing a post.  D’oh.

Anyway.  Check out the GeneralsJoes Fan Page right here, and there should now be all sorts of funky little Facebook buttons all over the site, so you can tell me how awesome I am.  You can also click the spiffy page badge below.

Rest in Peace Outrider

I haven’t really talked about it much over the past few months, even as we knew Outrider, from JoeDios.com, was sick with cancer.  A ravenous fan of the o-ring style, Outrider could do more things with a camera and cinematography than I could even think about.  He never did any elaborate dio-stories, sticking mostly with single shot images, but he had an incredible eye for perspective, and just had a frustratingly incredible natural talent for photography.

I say frustrating because I would see an image that it probably took him 10 minutes to take, and would try many, many times to replicate the cinema-like “feel”, only to come up empty.  Yet, it just seemed to come naturally to him.

I didn’t deal with him much on a personal basis, but he was a real spirit behind JoeDios.com, and did some amazing things there, and when news came through that he passed away, I felt compelled to write a little something.

He wasn’t the most vocal guy on the ‘net, and if you didn’t frequent JoeDios.com, you probably didn’t even know who he was, but he contributed more to this hobby than many other people out there, and for that he’ll always be remembered.

Mirrored below are a few of his images that I’m especially fond of, but do the crew at JoeDios a favor, and head over there to pay your condolences.  His images can all be found right here (all 125 pages worth!).  After 10 years of taking pictures, I still can’t capture the spirit and perspective that Craig did in a single shot, and I will always simultaneously love him and hate him for that.

Rest in Peace, Craig.  You earned it.
