A note of correction for you…Anderson is still not fixed and is limited to 50% capacity. It is due to be demolished in 2017 and rebuilt. I am not holding my breath that the work will even commence in 2017.

the city and @scvwd meet each yr to work out sharing, info, clean up, cost etc, etc, problem is the 2.47am email from scvwd was disregarded by scvwd who knew this was too much water, and the city both who did nothing, i hope they sue the sxxx out of the city, scvwd clean the slate, get directors and staff that want to do something for the ppl. not build new board rooms for 3 million which they approved during drought last yr? investigation? here is overhead footage of william st park shame even a ex director got hit.https://www.youtube.com/watch?… Maybe time to stop pointing fingers and take blame @scv wd and city of san jose both have EOC million dollar ones but nothing happens, as Dick Santos said we know it floods there….. “Mark Hansen • 2 days ago
If this amount of runoff hasn’t been seen in many decades then the planners and hydrologists would have a hard time figuring out where the flood prone areas along the rivers and streams would be vulnerable to overflow and flooding. I didn’t hear one mention of Santa Clara Valley Water District in this story. It’s their job to clean the creeks and remove debris every year. A lot of ‘water tax’ money is spent every year to do so. Where was the Murky News reporter who is supposed to know this and why didn’t the reporter ask some questions and get some response from the SCVWD spokesperson? The District was surely watching the creek levels with their remote monitoring SCADA system. They are responsible for getting the raw creek level information out to the City of San Jose and all other concerned agencies. frm sjmn”
yes they get millions to clean crks, but they dont clean a thing its done by volunteers.

You would think after 90 plus yrs the district and a bit the city would stop building right next to creeks floodplain?
but we all know the salaries, payouts and lawsuits cost the district millions in tax $ are, your tax dollars. Funny clean safe creeks gets 40 million and they use volunteers to clean the crk, with all their new trucks, cranes etc, the flooding, mess and encampments would be less, but guess what you will be paying them billions as the dams fall apart and if they ever do a real audit, not just line items, you will see the waste, and wonder why this did not go to their mission> whatever happened….http://www.sanjoseinside.com/2015/09/…

One of the best Tumblr blogs for photography lovers, mpdrolet, was recently shut down due to two copyright claims made by the same person.

Mark Peter Drolet is an excellent photo editor, and has been sharing excellent photographs, exposing and promoting the work of photographers from around the world to his thousands of followers, and making our dashboards a beautiful place to spend time on.

Even if there was a copyright violation, we hope that this can be solved on a case by case basis, without having to delete mpdrolet’s archive altogether, and letting Mark keep on updating his Tumblr.

Please reblog this to ask the Tumblr staff to #BringMPDroletBack!

angylene who used to come into Freestyle Photo where I worked in LA. she’d buy film and boxes of photo paper for sending out 8x10s. big boxes. she drove the pink vette in with the custom plates with her name. some said the billboards around town were paid for by her BF. she called me ‘matthew’ in a breathy marilyn type voice. she was always trippier than sexy to me. i bet she was fun to hang with.

got to meet him and shake hands with him in early 80s. SO cool. Great vibe. nice to meet a 20yr old whose buddy was helping to move his show into SJ museum of art.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.

This was shot on N Beachwood in Hollywoodland in Hollywood CA. I lived up the street on the right a couple houses. The Melvoin sisters and brothers moved into the apts out of shot on the left in the early 80s. Had no idea who they were at the time other than two really beautiful cool women who smiled at the bus stop on the way to work many mornings for a year or so. Eventually I talked with Susannah some and even went to her apt to talk to her once or twice. She talked about being really busy working with a bud from Minnesota. Didn’t figure out it was Prince until years later. I have one or two shots of Susannah somewhere but haven’t found them for years. But this is where the sisters sat most mornings back then. Waiting for the bus.

“Genesis Hair Salon”

If you wanted a mohawk or a shaved head with purple stripes, you trusted the razor of Atila Sikora, at 5255 Melrose. Atila was one of the first to give local punks and scensters a mohawk or a shaved head with purple stripes. Although Genesis is a thing of the past, Sikora continues to attend to the locks of clients in the neighborhood. Good to know some things don’t change!

The Candid Frame 284 – Matt Sweeney – This Week in Photo
Matt Sweeney’s photographs of Hollywood during the early eighties capture a unique time using the beautiful and unique color palette of Kodachrome.

The above is the work of the very kind, smart, and cool (for starters) Ibarionex Perello who interviewed me for his The Candid Frame on http://thisweekinphoto.com/ awhile back.

Alan Taylor presented some of my work on The Atlantic web site even longer ago. Nice presentation of some of my Hollywood work.

“There are many reasons one should not presume to tell the story of a life but in the case of Paige Baty one reason is that she could have done it with more panache and intrigue than anyone else possibly could. It might not be an accurate story, but it would be fascinating. She often constructed scripts of her life that were larger than life: these were her standards and inducements, the way she envisioned futures, the true fictions that kept her enormous energy focused.” – J Peter Euben (from the link below)http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/theory_and_event/summary/v001/1.4euben.html

I posted this to the UCSC grateful dead archive web site. It was found there by somebody and reposted 7600+ times. about 100x more than any of my other pics in my stream that I actually posted to tumblr myself. i’ll post more from this series. Pretty cool rolls, they went 20years from exposure>developing. then disappeared in the bowels of the lab for almost 2yrs before arriving one day on my porch in a box. agfachrome film.
