I didn't write that blog post, should have made this ore clear. It's just my photos on there (that I actually didn't even have time to edit because they were pushing to release super fast). It's Steve the surfer and rock carver from New Jersey that wrote this. That dude is boss and super passionate about everything rock related. He's in charge of all social media and does a great job!
Had a great time yesterday watching the eclipse! And apparently the blog post featuring my photos and videos is beating all kinds of view records: http://blog.polycor.com/the-day-white-marble-turned-black-photos
It's been a really fun summer so far, and it's only gonna get better with burning man next week. I don't think I've ever been more exited.
Even had an unexpected bonding moment with this lady that works at the Georgia office yesterday that not only knew what burning man was (that I so far had to explain as going camping at an art festival in the desert to everyone else at the company) but has been at many festivals before and had some great tips to share.
Will be in LA the week after that (sept 4th to 12th at least). WHO'S IN TOWN? kleinbl00?
Thanks for the offer! Shipping to Canada is expensive - and we've found a place near New York City where we can buy a case of 24 for about 120$ USD. It's not the cheapest but it's the best I'll probably get in North America (believe me, I considered most options. I don't know why I'm so obsessed with this drink). We stock up whenever we pass by!
NO WE DON'T REALLY HAVE CLUB MATE.
I mean we kinda do - but it's at 5-6$ a bottle. I legit looked into importing to Canada after I tried it in Germany and realized it's the superior drink. We have some off brand stuff, but I find the taste too sweet compared to the original.
The problem is some old dude bought the distribution rights for the whole Canada and over-charges like crazy. So nobody buys and it's a dead end. I swear this drink has crazy potential in cities like Montreal with the right marketing but that dude's website look like it's from the 1990s and I bet he doesn't even have any in stock because he requires a min quantity of a container...
It's been a huge bummer :(
A plaque in a Montreal Hudson's Bay Company store commemorating Jefferson Davis' brief stay in the city was installed by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1957; it was removed following the Charlottesville rally.
Weird we had one in the first place, but yay Montreal!
Yeah it rains on and off every day over there - but hopefully the skies will clear up at the moment of the eclipse. Would be a bit of a bummer if not.
Thanks for the explanation - I understand a lot better now :)
Have fun on your own eclipse adventure!
I KNOW! I'M SO CLOSE!
But they want shots including their quarry so i'm stuck at the 99% zone... Still pretty dope they're flying me in for that. I've never seen even a partial eclipse before. Not ever a lunar one. We ordered some glasses for everyone too.
I'm actually planning to punch holes in a poster in the shape of the company's logo and project half-moons into the marble inside the quarry. I tried explaining how awesome that is but I'm not so good at explaining. Hopefully they'll understand what I meant when I make the video. They were asking me WHY the shadows will be half-moons and I was like... cause pinhole photography? Physics?
Thanks for the link - I knew you'll have the insider information forums!
I'll be in a city called Tate in Georgia - north of Atlanta. Out of the path of totality by a few miles :(
How about a guest bed?
Company's flying me into Atlanta to film the eclipse from their quarry for social media. I have like 0 idea of how to do that and don't really have the proper lenses either. And it's not like I get a do-over... but internet research has been kind of fruitless. I guess I'll buy some polarisers, lock everything on manual on 3 cameras and and roll video hoping nothing fucks up. It's like a 99% eclipse at the quarry so I figured it won't get super dark.
After that, straight to burning man! And then I'll rent a car and drive around Cali for about a week for more photos of memorials.
A hectic couple weeks ahead, but I'm loving it.
