This has been a curious day. Debi and I are in Minneapolis for a wedding, and while we were driving through the rain to go see the bride and groom’s new house, we heard Purple Rain on the radio. I joked that I was disappointed that the rain wasn’t actually purple in this town, and I then suggested that we should do a Prince tour later in the day and try to find the locations from the movie. We later heard on the radio that there had been a fatality at the Prince estate, and we assumed that a party must have gone wrong. A while later, the bride looked at her phone and learned that it was Prince who had died.
I just learned that a Bing search for "pictures of knuckleheaded people" results in photos of my costumes.
Jason Kopelman shot this time-lapse video showing some of the Sherwood Forest setup and the arrival of thousands of campers at the 2012 Electric Forest Festival.

This is my favorite time-lapse video from Electric Forest 2012. Calder Wilson really captured the way the light moved about the forest, and especially how the colors of the Cathedral Windows reacted to the color-changing lights.
