Blake Quits

Bad news hit the world of CR tonight. Our lead guitarist, who had been with the band since 2007 decided he no longer wanted to pursue a future in music. Evan, our bass player, took it the hardest. More news as this develops. Is this the end? I don't know. But we sure as hell have a lot to work out in the coming days.

Band Update

It's been a hectic few months for us. We've moved into a new house, canceled a tour, ditched a drummer then found a new one, then ditched him and found yet ANOTHER one, and have done a lot of sitting around the house doing absolutely jack shit. I wish this post could be a whole bunch of a pictures from our tour and all the exotic lands we've been and adventures we've had, but the truth is despite all that going on we haven't really done much. Nothing visual, anyway. Shit has been depressing and bleak, but that's how the life of the musician goes.

Here's a little bit of what has gone on this summer. Not a real edit of the project or anything, just some shots the guys and I like. With things looking up there should be more posts soon, assuming everything goes the way we want it to.

Start of Something Good

So with college over and my whole life ahead of me, I am left contemplating what I am going to do. Where will this path I've chosen take me. Well for right now, the path is keeping me in Kentucky to pursue music with my heavy metal band, Cryptic Reality. But, so as not to waste the last four years of my life, I've finally found a style and way of photographing that I was making my work lack in years past.

My plan is to autobiographically document this journey my bandmates are undertaking, so that years into the future we can look back on it and say we did everything we could to achieve our dream; even if it never happened. Three of us are going to be living together, and we will be doing tours, shows, practices, parties, everything. I hope to put this together in a photo book when it is all over (if it is ever over) but for right now I will periodically be posting on the blog, until I get enough of an edit to put it on my website. This is the first photo of the project, and many more will come.

"So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?"

Because I love you all

Holy neglected blog, Batman! It's been a long, long, long time since I've updated this, mostly because I just got so busy last semester that regularly updating was out of the question. So I'll make up for it by picture vomiting all over the Internet right now. This isn't nearly everything I shot last semester, nor is it even the best stuff. But I like all of these in some way and thought I would share them with you. There may have been a few I've missed, and if I stumble across them I will be sure to update again. Thanks for looking!
