2009: A Giddy(-uhn) New Year!

If you’ve looked around my personal site here at all, you know that I enjoy playing around with graphic images with Photoshop.  Then @gideonstrumpet said, I need a new userpic. Maybe someone can glom a festive hat on my head. You may have heard the old saying, Be careful what you wish for! All I…

Chopsticks & Jews: A Christmas Tradition

But that shouldn’t really be a problem, nu? This morning, there was some (very minimal) discussion on Twitter regarding the American Jewish Christmas Tradition of going out to a movie and a Chinese restaurant.  My wife — not a native-born member of the tribe — was puzzling over a minor objection I raised this morning…
A Person Solving a Crossword Puzzle

Let Me See

According to a quiz over at the Most Trusted Name in News (CNN), my “gaming style” is “Visual.”  This means I think in pictures and have a talent for building and designing things.  CNN suggests that I challenge my brain by doing crossword puzzles, or learning an new language. Just thought you might want to…

A Darwinian Theory of Fashion Photography

(Unfortunately, as I haven’t (yet, anyway) done actual fashion photography, but rather normally shoot boudoir and artistic nudes, the Featured Image for this post is the closest I’ve ever shot. I hope you enjoy this “vintage boudoir” image of my favorite model, Andrea. She is, after all, the Most Winningest Model.) I’ve been reading an…
Banner for All Things Rick and Wonderful, the website of Rick Horowitz at exists as a kind of “umbrella site” to tie together and showcase my various websites, interests and activities.  You may not care much about these things, and that’s fine by me.  I built this site primarily “because I can” and I wanted another website challenge. Here you’ll find information about and links to other…

Photography, Digital Art & Website Design

In spite of the creativity involved in being a criminal defense attorney, I find that I need an even more creative outlet.  From the pre-digital days of high school, when I processed my own film and cropped, dodged and burned (sometimes literally) my own images in the school darkroom or a makeshift darkroom in the…

Photography, Digital Art & Website Design (Full)

One of my innumerable interests is photography and digital art.  More than once in my life, I wished I’d been able to seriously devote myself to a career in photography.  Unfortunately for me, I’m a better photographer than business-person and each attempt at “going pro” has run smack dab up against the problem of figuring…

Robin Williams on Obama's Election

Found the original video I wanted you to see at the Political Irony website. Too funny for (my) words. When I first started re-vamping my website here, I couldn’t find it at first. So, just to be safe, you have the link to it (which I eventually found), and a YouTube link here: How does…
staying up all night designing blogs is not always fun

Revolution Office Theme & Blog

The modification of the Revolution Office theme without support, or a manual, and with my limited experience with PHP and WordPress™ has been both a real pain in the hiney and a somewhat satisfying learning experience.

There Is Nothing Original About This Post

Well, okay, maybe this sentence here, and maybe the Featured Image — but that’s all. And this lamp…. Anyway, this post is for my friends who are into this sort of thing. It’s a romantic full moon, when Pedro said, “Hey, mamacita, let’s do Weeweechu.” “Oh no, not now, let’s look at the moon!” said…
