Week In Review: January 8-14

I might as well just change this column to be the ‘Week in Instagram a la I Shoot Reno’ with all of the IG photos popping up these days, but let’s not forget about this amazing thing all around us called ‘the real world’.  Yes folks, this thing does truly exist, and if we look up from our smartphones for just a quick second we’ll realize that we’re all part of something much bigger than real-time updates on whichever topic we fancy at the moment.  Indeed, this ‘real world’ will often demand our attention when we are sucked into our technology and it is up to ourselves to impose a limit and recognize when lines are being crossed.  Example: Click on the link just below to discover an upcoming Hip Hop show in our area which is not to be missed.  Or, of course … you could just stare at your iPhone all night.

Upcoming: Abstract Rude, Shames Worthy, Zoo Effort, DJ Zole, Winstrong @ The Alley

Hold iPhone 4S up to a foggy set of glasses and snap the pic.  It should look something like the image above.  Try it with different lighting effects for really interesting photos! #nofilter

Anyone remember that Green Velvet song which repeats the phrase It’s time for the percolator?  That’s just a hint.  Can you guess which app I used?

So word has it that this is an unofficial tour poster and many of the dates have yet to be announced.  Word also has it that one of I Shoot Reno’s photos of Tech N9ne was included here.

Slow Shutter + Juxtaposer on the apps.  I was sitting at the light and took this shot right as we made a right onto Robb Dr. off of Sharlands in NW Reno.  Cool, huh?  Oh, and eat your greens!

So this is basically an edit of what my iPhone 4S home screen looks like.  That’s a mosaic of Jimi I made as the wallpaper even though you can’t really tell…

I grabbed a photo of Captain Jean-Luc Picard from the Web and did some editing in ToonPAINT, Decim8 and LensLight.  Pretty flippin sweet if you ask me.
