Got my film scanned! I can edit it nao. So you'll be seeing some. Problem is the people who scanned it did a TERRIBLE job. everything is really really blown out. [it isn't on the negatives.]

But I'll do my best.

This is out of focus, but I like it anyway.

Most of these won't have long explanations. And I know I have questions still.

Hey Kids. Guess what? Real photos!

My friend Jenny, who is awesome, is the social media specialist for Boston University. She has been featured in a few little articles across the internet about schools with such things, and is generally an awesome person. [I said it above, it bears repeating. Know who I could spend all my time with? Jenny Mackintosh] Anyway, the Washington Post recently talked to her about her job, and asked her for a head shot. Enter me! We did a shoot, and got what we both think are some great photos out of it. It helps that she's so damn pretty. This was my first real shoot of this nature with anyone, and I feel happy about it.

And now I'm sharing these photos with y'all. Hope you enjoy.

A few more, here )

It was one of those awesome moments where I remember "wow. I CAN do this. Awesome!"

I'm in the development process of a photo project that will be incredibly difficult, and draining, but has extreme potential. I look forward to trying to make it a reality.

I've almost finished the wedding photos for [livejournal.com profile] i_f_f

I'm still shooting at least one roll of film a week.

And I am still, Todd H. Page.

How are you, anyway?

Right oh... first off, music phases like crazy over here. I've been tipped off to this style called House... and am exploring it. It's pretty sweet, very easy to get into a groove of. I like it alot, It's got a sweet beat, and you can totally zone to it, or get into it. A sample? Well- theres ninetybillion free stuffs online really. just google house music, or something along those lines.

Musically otherwise - I've been rocking out to Streetlight Manifesto alot (again) I keep on coming back to them in my phase cycles... Point/Counterpoint is one of their songs that I listen to alot... although I seriously listen to the whole album all the time. There a bit of ska meets punk.

and lastly... its been a very retro week as I begin to compile the list of "Songs that used to be wicked cool" My limits - it must have been released BEFORE 2001, and after 91. My main target years is 93 - 00. Basically everything up until High School. It's very... flashback-y. I associate memories with whatever is playing at the time, so listening to some of these songs is bringing back crazy amounts of memories. So yeah... heres a few flashbacks for y'all:

What I gotta do is Run Around till I find some Sex and Candy. Then I'll get in my car with One Headlight and drive The Distance" MmmBoping all the way.

obviously I have no life.

P.S. I use google to find these on other peoples networks... shhh

eider vay. Happy Easter break, or additional spring break for those non easter believing folk. I go home tomorrow.

Heres some pictures to say goodbye with.

It was beautiful out today... a good day to play guitar outside

an interesting angle on my guitar... I love my guitar- its so beautiful and unique (Martin DX-K2)

This weekend was... to say the least... packed. The show went very very well. The audience caught the subtle jokes, and laughed at them, which is good because they we're in for a twisted play. I'm fairly certain all my friends who went to see it we're heavily disturbed. Which is... good, as strange as that sounds. The play was incredibly well done, all the actors are amazing- and the play is disturbing, so I think its good. The cast party was uber fun, and very chill, speaking of which- Kings is a crazy game.

Matt (Rocky) from home came up to see PC this weekend- actually he just left a few hours ago, and we had fun - I think he liked it... I'm not sure though. We did a lot of lowkey stuff- and visited the infamous thayer street(not as exciting as everyone makes it out to be)

There was a lot of pool and cards this weekend. We snuck a couch out of the blackbox stage to watch The Lion King with a projector in the Smith Center- it was like watching it in the theaters again.

and now... for nine billion pictures... there's tons, so I think I'll break it up into two entries- one in like 3 hours, and one now.

The show from backstage (it's tilted because we used a traditional slanted stage)

Fancy lights affects are fun! (the floor lights on stage left) say hello to my nose.

Annie - the wig holder... scared the crap out of me.

Turns out my feet are bigger than Kates... but she still accepted the award for being my hero... she even gave an acceptance speech (I love cast parties)

seriously... I can't help it...

For those who are drasticly confused - I am not a cannibal or a viking - thats a PC theater tradition we do before every show... its strange, but its fun, and everyone gets pumped up. that is all for now. I have some pictures to upload laterish.

on that subject- sorry if the pictures are a big old bother. I hope its not too much of a pain in the ass. I can put them behind a cut, or put up less if that'd be better for everyone. I'm kind of putting them here A. because its a more vivid recollection, methinks. B. because I'm trying to get better, and one way to do that is have other people look at it. and C. so I can visibly watch myself improve, hopefully. I'll try and post better pictures in the future and such.

Okay- life is still chronically insane, hell week rushes on, the show is nuts, but its going to kick ass tomorrow. I got to chat with a photographer with a Canon Digital Rebel today, which was thrilling to be perfectly honest- I'm such a camera nerd. Other than that and the fact that life is inexplicably busy, all I have to say is I just ate an entire pizza by myself. I'm well aware that you don't care, however... so on with the pictures. I did remember to include the picture that made the paper this time - its the first one.

This is the picture which got published. whooooo! - they chose the b/w... but I sent in both- so heres both

Oy. I completely forgot to upload the picture thats going to be in the pape tomorrow. oh well. next time.

Needless to say I've been ridiculously busy. SOOO busy. and alots happened. I'm still too busy really, so I'm going to keep it brief. Cue to cue went from 10 to 8:30. too damn long. Mike's show ("Welcome to the Monkey House") went really well. I cried. Civ exam went alright. I have too much laundry and too much rehearsing. And far far too much going on, so I'm a bit stressed out. GAH! Anyway. Real quick, heres some pics, including a valentines day special b/c I felt obligated. MEG42- look carefully, theres some reminiscent ones in here :).

P.S. everyone go see sister. that is all:
P.S.S. a lot of these are clips from what I did/ saw this weekend, as usual. nothing with too much thought and effort. I have a few more I'm going to update later as well ( with the Paper pic)

Jilly has a colorful scarf! It was cold on sunday.

And by cold... I mean cold enough to freeze my hair. literally. It was actually frozen.

Cue to Cue... to cue... to cue.. to cue... (Sister in this House)

Why you don't Todd play with an LED light backstage whilst waiting for the next cue. by the way- per my suggestion, one of the cues is being called chaos. (2 sound cues, the scrim, and a light cue all at once)

They're still there!! Go Brig Fly crew!

you'll never know how many pictures I have on my PC of things that are shaped just right.

Ok. Once again I'm going to resolve to make less crap posts. I'm no longer going to follow memes. I'm going to post stuff that actually applies to me. it may not be a word for word story of my life. it may not be even words. it may be 76 pictures. I'm confident that you can handle it. That being said:

This was a decent weekend, my parents came up for Parents Weekend. Surprisingly, we didn't have any issues! We got along very well all weekend. Friday night we went to fire and ice, which is a sort of grilly type thing here. Heres the deal- you get all this random uncooked food- fruits, vegetables, and meats and seafoods of any kind (you pay one price to do this as many times as you want) Then you pick a sauce and go up to the grill, and they grill everyones food on this big old circle stove, then, when its ready, cook it in the sauce. It's amazing! I love the food there, its absolutely fantastic. Joe came along, and all was good. Afterwards meg and I visited Joe. Saturday me and the rents went to breakfast, hung out at their hotel, and then went to the hockey game ('twas a tie 3-3). Hockey is one of the only sports I can really watch. Then my fam, the dalferros and the Bayards joined together to get pizza.

Today was the only slightly edgy part. This is the portion where my mom goes somewhere and my dad talks business. Finances, scholarship... did I mention I lost that? Because I did. I can't even believe it. That brings my total debt up to something like 25,000. so, basically, I'm going to owe money till I'm 35. But I can't wait to get the job to pay it off- not just because I want to pay it off. Don't get me wrong, I love college. and I kow its the "best 4 years of my life" and I am taking advantage of it. But I really want to get out in the field. Sitting around studying is clearly not for me. Walking the beat may be- and if it isn't, then I'm sure I can find one that is. either way, I'm ready to have a job thats a real job that I love.

now for the pictures

The following is a letter every student recieved from father shanley today.

Dear Members of the Providence College Community:

Having spent my first six months trying to learn about the campus culture, I would like to
inaugurate a series of letters reflecting on some of the most debated questions that I
have heard discussed since I began my ministry as president. I begin with the question of
what is the most appropriate way for the Providence College community to work together to
prevent violence against women. Some people feel passionately that the college ought to
sponsor a V-Day production of The Vagina Monologues, and I have often been queried about
my position on this matter. To prepare a response, I have carefully read and studied the
play. I have met with some of the student leaders of Women's Will, the main sponsoring
group, to listen to their perspective and share some of my concerns. I have pondered
their position, discussed the matter with many people, educated myself about what other
Catholic schools have done, and prayed to God for guidance. I have come to the conclusion
that a V!
-Day presentation of The Vagina Monologues is not appropriate for a school with our
mission. Let me explain why.

The back cover of my paperback edition of The Vagina Monologues asserts (1) that its
principal aim is to be "a celebration of female sexuality in all its complexity and
mystery" and (2) that it has been "hailed as a bible for a new generation of women." I
argue that both of these claims are false. First, far from celebrating the
complexity and mystery of female sexuality, The Vagina Monologues simplifies and
demystifies it by reducing it to the vagina. In contrast, Roman Catholic teaching sees
female sexuality as ordered toward a loving giving of self to another in a union of body,
mind, and soul that is ordered to the procreation of new life. The deeper complexity and
mystery lies in the capacity of human sexuality, both male and female, to sacramentalize
the love of God in marriage. Any depiction of female sexuality that neglects its unitive
and procreative dimensions diminishes its complexity, its mystery, and its dignity.
Moreover, to explore fully the dignit!
y of woman requires not only a consideration of female sexuality, but also of the
capacity of women for intellectual, artistic, moral, and spiritual activity; none of these
dimensions are featured in The Vagina Monologues.

Second, the description of the play as a "new bible" is an indication that its depiction
of female sexuality is meant to displace the traditional Biblical view that inspires the
teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. The two positions are deeply and diametrically
opposed. Nowhere is this clearer than in a monologue wherein the alcohol-fueled seduction
of a sixteen-year-old girl by a twenty-four-year-old woman is described as resulting in
"salvation" and "a kind of heaven." What is thus characterized in traditional religious
language is instead abusive, demeaning, exploitative, and morally wrong according to the
true Bible. Precisely because its depiction of female sexuality is so deeply at odds with
the true meaning and morality that the Catholic Church.s teaching celebrates, The Vagina
Monologues is not an appropriate play to be performed on our campus. Therefore the college
will prohibit the production of The Vagina Monologues.

Doubtless some will reply that this is a violation of artistic freedom. But artistic
freedom on a Catholic campus cannot mean the complete license to perform or display any
work of art regardless of its intellectual or moral content. Any institution which
sanctioned works of art that undermined its deepest values would be inauthentic,
irresponsible, and ultimately self-destructive. At Providence College artistic freedom is
governed by the values embodied in our mission statement. A Catholic college cannot
sanction the performance of works of art that are inimical to the teaching of the Church
in an area as important as female sexuality and the dignity of women.

This policy will inevitably raise questions regarding academic freedom. The true meaning
of academic freedom is often misunderstood; it is not the license to hold any view that
one chooses. Academic freedom is instead always governed by truth. It is the freedom to
pursue the truth in a discipline in accord with the accepted canons of inquiry without any
impediment by extraneous considerations. Prohibiting a theatrical production of The
Vagina Monologues does not prohibit free inquiry about the play. All members of the
campus are free to read, study, and discuss the play in various settings, especially the
classroom. It is perfectly appropriate that we study texts that have diverse views in
order both to broaden our understanding of others and to bring our own views into sharper
focus. I fully expect that one result of this communication will be some controversy.
As a long-time student of St. Thomas Aquinas, I think disputes are an important part of
education, so long !
as they are conducted with charity. While arguments about intellectual positions help us
to learn from each other, attacks on persons do not.

Instead of producing The Vagina Monologues, the best way for Providence College to work
together to combat violence against women is to strengthen its commitment to support
Project S.A.V.E. (Sexual Assault and Violence Education). Project S.A.V.E is a
collaborative effort of many student groups to educate the campus about how to prevent
violence against women and help survivors heal. The week-long effort will begin with a
Mass on April 23rd to pray for victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence. It
will continue with educational presentations, displays, and performances, and culminate
with the annual Take Back The Night vigil and walk. The college.s administration will work
directly with student leaders to make this week the centerpiece of our efforts to educate
everyone about violence against women. I shall personally take part in events that week,
and I encourage everyone in the community to play a role in making the week a success.

It is my hope and prayer that we can move beyond disagreement on the merits of a
particular text and work together on a cause that unites us all. Let us strive for a
deeper appreciation of God.s gift of human sexuality in all its complexity and mystery.
Let us endeavor to educate the community about the peculiar threat to human dignity that
is violence against women. Let us work together for the healing of all who have survived
such violence. If our efforts are grounded in truth and animated by love, then by the
grace of God at work within us, our efforts will bear much fruit.

Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P., Ph.D.

Dear Father Shanley-

go screw yourself.
