Burning Man 2017

I attended a short Burning Man this year – the event runs from Sunday until the following Monday (Labor Day), but I arrived around 1am Tuesday morning and left Thursday afternoon. I was camped with Red Nose District, right next to Death Guild Thunderdome, and took an awful lots of shots of the fights in the domes. Let’s just say that’s tricky with a manual lens.

My original 4300 photos became nearly 400 selected and edited. I made a lot of new friends this year (or got to know some people I only knew casually previously, better).

The entire album can be found on my Facebook page here. Scenes include Center Camp, Honey Puddle bar and piano scenes, Red Nose District, Thunderdome, the car crash outside the event, and my friends Wendy and David who hosted me on the way in and out of Burning Man when I stopped in Reno.

Camera equipment used:

Sony 6300
SLR Magic 35mm T1.4 Cine Mark II Lens E Mount

Sarahah – The Feedback Space

So, this website debuted recently that allows anonymous feedback (because what could possibly go wrong?).

I decided last week to try it out, and then I ended up getting interesting comments so I started sharing them, making things kind of like an AMA.

To add your own feedback, click here.

To see the feedback I’ve gotten and my replies, check out this Facebook album (click on a picture to see my commentary).

 

This LP Member Wishes Austin Petersen The Best of Luck

Wherein I say nice things about Austin Petersen.

Austin Petersen, in preparation for his Senate run, said he made a lot of phone calls and talked to a lot of people before making his decision to run as a Republican. I happened to be one of those people – he came over for dinner in Los Angeles this spring and asked me for my thoughts about his run, and which party. I told him to run as a Republican.

There’s probably a dozen reasons why.”

Speaking At Freedom Fest 2017

FFX-JoinMe-OBrien.jpg

Freedom Fest holds a special place in my heart – I’ve gone every year for the past 5 years. It was where I first met Judd Weiss in person (we met on Facebook a couple weeks before). Attending FreedomFest helped me get to know Peter Schiff’s LA team better and get me the job with Euro Pacific Capital, which brought me to the work I do today. I never miss Freedom Fest. You shouldn’t either.

This year, instead of working the EPC booth or running around taking pictures (okay, I will have my camera, so there will be some pictures), I’ll be speaking — on millennials, the generation of liberty activists, and my optimism about the future of the movement.
