The good folks over at Piaffe Photography gave me the nomination for the Liebster Blog Award for the Photographic companion blog to this one (http://thevastgallery.wordpress.com/) , so that is awesome, and a big thanks to them!!!!!
What is the “Liebster Blog Award?”
This prestigious award honors up and coming bloggers and reputedly began years ago in Germany. “Liebster” is German for “favorite”, so in a way this award is the “favorite blog award” as another blogger put it. You receive this award from a fellow blogger that feels your blog is both worthy & important to them. I am supposed to take this time to recommend other bloggers, but truth be told, I dont really read any others so I wont. I will just say go and explore the blog world and imagery world and discover things that catches your eye, tempts your fancy, or just plain blows you away…..
When they nominated me for this, they gave me a list of questions, so here they are with my answers as best as I could answer them…..
What makes you truly happy? My daughter, my ladyfriend, my family, hockey, my friends, travel, and a good glass of wine.
What’s your special hidden talent? Well if I told you, it wouldn’t be hidden now would it?
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? If it was to be with friends, I would have to go with Marseille. Honestly, I love seeing and discovering all I can regardless of its 5 miles away or 5,000 miles away.
If you could only bring back ONE special souvenir, what would it be? A memory card full of great images, or a bad ass tattoo.
What person do you admire most in the world…famous or not, living or dead? There are a shit ton of humans out there who are full of love, compassion, selflessness, over come obstacles, find and know inner peace that humble me on a daily basis. I dont think you can limit it to one person. There are too many good ones out there.
If someone was going to give you both good news and bad news, which would you want to hear first? Bad news. Always go out with good news….
If you have to take a test, do you answer the easy questions first or the hard ones? Usually the easy ones first to knock them out. Then go back and spend time on the harder ones. Makes sense to get the points you know you can get, so you dont sacrifice them if you spend too much time on the hard ones…..
Tell me what the bumper sticker on your car would say about you? “If it aint broke, break It”
Share a secret desire. Nope. They are more fun as secrets….
Acronyms are my pet peeve. Make up a new meaning for one of the following: MMP, IRD, NBC, NASA, MTM
MMP - Morbid Mother Phucker……IRD - I Rage Drastically.….NBC - Never Buy Crap…..NASA - Need Another Seven Astronauts.…..MTM - Metal To Metal
Tell us a time (real or imagined, but preferably real) when you met or saw a celebrity – Due to my work its not an irregular thing, but one time in Vegas, after standing in an impossible bar line, I got two drinks as I didnt want to wait in line again, I turn around and BOOM – A Big bright light in my face to which I reply “What the fuck?” and its Downtown Julie Brown from MTV doing some shooting about Las Vegas.
She said “Ohhhh Double fisting are we big boy?”
To which I replied “I hear you are into that. Double Fisting. Two fists…”
All she said was “Dick”
“No, fists. Two of them” I reminded her.
That was the end of that conversation and I never made it on to MTV. Oh well. Fuck it, I now have a Liebster!
