After a 12-hour-long, snow-delayed Amtrak trip from Truckee to Merced, I picked up an AWD SUV and tire chains to venture into Yosemite National Park in the snow. I had my trusty Fuji X-E2 and captured some photos of Yosemite in all its majesty.
Tahoe is having a record year for snow this year, and last week I was able to hit the slopes at Squaw Valley. Squaw Valley is one of the largest ski areas in the U.S. and was the host of the 1960 Winter Olympics. I had my Fuji X-E2 and took some photos. It was awesome.
Porches, a synthpop band from New York, released a new album called Pool, and it’s worth a listen if you’re into mopey, melodic vibes. Their new music video for “Car” is cool too, it’s shot in 4:3 and looks so ’90s.
The latest Netflix original series, Stranger Things, is my new favorite kidventure-thriller ever. It’s obviously inspired by E.T., The Goonies, The Shining, Alien, et al., and it plays out brilliantly.
Every ’90s kid wants to be Indiana Jones – treasure hunting in booby-trapped tombs while fighting bad guys. In Uncharted, the action-adventure third-person shooter-platformer for Sony Playstation, Nathan Drake is the new Indiana Jones.
