Punch The Camera: Issue 2

27 August 2012, 07.20 | Posted in Art, Photography | No comments »

PTC 1

A friend of mine, Justin Parkhurst, recently released the second issue of his photo zine “Punch The Camera“. When you hear the word “zine” you tend to think of a couple black and white xeroxed pages crudely bound by a string of thread. “Punch The Camera” however is more of a soft cover book filled with 104 pages of full color images on nicely bound premium stock paper. And printed on those pages is the work of 8 different photographers including the likes of Peter Sutherland, Jim Mangan, Gary McLeod, and Justin himself. You can buy a copy for yourself here and support a project that many of us think of doing ourselves and rarely follow through on.

More preview images after the jump.

Want Of The Week: Jambox By Jawbone

Jambox1

I had to do a feature on this thing because every time I bring it out people want to know all about it. Not to long ago I got my hands on the incredible JAMBOX put out by Jawbone, and now I bring it everwhere. It is a wireless speaker that connects to you phone, iPad, computer, you name it via Bluetooth. This little thing packs a punch with crisp sound, a good amount of bass, and not to mention… it simply looks great. It has an internal battery that seems to last forever, but when it does run low you simply plug it in to recharge. And when you are wirelessly connected from your phone and have an incoming call, it will not only tell you who is calling, but you simply have to press a button on the Jambox to answer and it functions as a speakerphone.

This thing is small enough to fit in a purse and has put me to sleep while camping, kept me company while sitting under a tree drinking coffee in a park, and entertained on a late night ride home in a cab when I didn’t want the party to end. It is especially good when you are watching movies on your computer and you want a louder/higher quality sound. Enough about my ranting, go get one for yourself… worth every penny.

To get a better idea of what this thing is capable of check out the video after the jump, as well as a few more shots of places I have gone with the Jambox.
