JOL Sunday Flickr

Oh yeah, installation #2 of the newly titled JOL Sunday Flickr!  I hope this has been a relaxing weekend for all of you who read this blog — and obviously those who don’t, but JOL readers rock and they get first preference in my heart!

Something awesome to check out:  Morgan Freeman narrating a series called Through the Wormhole.  This sh*t is awesome, I highly recommend it!  Laura has turned me on to the show (as well as to Ancient Aliens and Fatal Encounters
, which is a freaky but awesome show too), and I know that you’ll love it.  Get ready for brain explosion, this is some heavy stuff.

Check out this week’s JOL Sunday Flickr — lots of great shots!

Any JimOnLight.com Readers in Phoenix? How About A JimOnLight.com Tweetup?

I’m traveling to Phoenix, Arizona today to light a convention at the PCC this next week.  As I sit here sending lighting paperwork to the server, it struck me – why not have a Phoenix Tweetup?  Are there any JimOnLight.com readers in the greater Phoenix area who might wanna get together at a bar somewhere close to the Phoenix Convention Center (as my hotel is there and I have no car) some night between June 10 and June 16?

My schedule kind of gets made that morning, maybe a day before if I’m lucky (you know, large corporate shows fluctuate, sometimes I need programming time in the evenings), so if you’re interested in getting together some night this next week, post in the comments, wouldja?  Let’s see if we can gauge the number of people and choose the venue accordingly?

I’m looking forward to meeting John Musarra out there (@jmusarra on the Twits), a stagehand in the Phoenix area.  Come on out and hang with us for the evening!  You can also send me a message through the contact form if you don’t wanna post a comment.  But posting comments is SO FUN!

LDI 2009 – The JimOnLight.com and iSquint TWEET-UP!


Jim is gonna be at LDI this year!  Are you?

I have some questions for the JimOnLight.com community:

  1. Are you going to LDI 2009 in Orlando, Florida?
  2. Do you at least occasionally enjoy drinking a beer or cocktail?
  3. Are you a Twitter-er?

On Friday, November 20, 2009 at 8pm, JimOnLight.com and iSquint are hosting a Tweet-Up at the LDI 2009 show.  We’re still ironing out some of the details, but it’s gonna be awesome.  We’re hoping to see as many of you there as possible!

Friday night, November 20, 2009, 8pm!

Jim and iSquint will be tweeting about this from now until the Tweet-Up – check Twitter for hashtags (that’s a word with a # in front of it) #ldi2009 and #ldi09tweetup.  We look forward to seeing you there!
