I spent the day on the beach. Walking. Probably 6+ miles of beachwalking/thrift shopping/coffee drinkin’/picture takin’/smoothie drinkin’/sun burnin’ fun.
This ain’t a self-portrait, but this guy’s got it all figured out.
I just dumped a bushel of architecture shots up on Ye Aulde Website from San Diego in 2011. Heading back down there in a few days to get some more and visit with the Illustrious Colonel J and the rest of the SoCal fam-damnly. Looking forward to it.
Not so looking forward to airport security… haven’t had any problems with traveling so far, but it seems to be good odds that anyone who travels by plane in The States is bound to get the rubber glove/petroleum jelly treatment eventually. It’s soon to be a right of passage I think.
I’ll cross my fingers and look forward to an In & Out burger. Eyes on the prize, y’know?
I neglected this blog for too long. I’ve not been focused on photography
(oh… oh puns… puns…aaaaaahhhhh-hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
There. that’s out.)
for a while now, just busy with other shit so I’ve found I’ve got nothing really worthy of ploppin’ up here (because, we all know Tumblr and blogs in general to be repositories of ‘worth’.). Really, the Kreddible Trout (part of the) World Tour 2010 was the only reason I started a blog and I do believe it was ‘worthy’, but I’m a bad self-promoter and I hate marketing so… I don’t blog a lot ‘to keep my feed fresh in your feed cos you might forget about me every few seconds’ as seems to be the marketing strategy of every tremendously-successful-two-month-old-suburban-home-studio-photographic-wizard-who-dropped-a wad-of-cash-on-a-high-end-camera-they-don’t-understand-a-handful-of-strobes-and-a-copy-of-PS(whatever it’s up to now) out there.
I just do my snarky shit and have a good time, y’know? So, that’s what ah’m a’gonna do. Nonsense and silliness and re-blogs and occasionally some Bona Fide Kreddible Trout Patented Marketing Scenarios™ where you’ll be told something like:
“Hey pants-less masses! (some of you aren’t wearing pants… come on… admit it). Listen, ol’ Troutski will be heading down to San Diego again in a couple of weeks to do up another office in his ever expanding portfolio of Kreddible Trout Officially Large Scale Office Beautification Installments™, eat a bunch of In & Out burgers and hang out with the crazy man (the Right Honorable Colonel J… no real rank but he sometimes calls me ‘esquire’.) and his lovely family. Who I call my SoCalFam.”
Hypothetically that’s the sort of stuff I’d beak-off about. But it’s not hypothetical ‘cos it’s true. Heading down on the 15th. Looking forward to it.
Otherwise I’ll just be more present here. I may be political. I’ve been known to do that. But I will always try to be much less long-winded and tangent-oriented than this. I’m sleepy.
and remember… when I trail on and on and on at any moment you can head on over to The Mothership Kreddible Trout Connection and check out some of The New Stuff or even some Nature or Sexy Disected Fruit. Whatever, man. The internet’s wacky, y’know?
more weird shit coming to a Kreddible Trout Blog near YOU!
That’s right, folks, you read right, it’s time for THE BIG SHIMMY SHIMMY!
Once again I hear the clamor ‘what the hell is he talking about?’, ‘shimmy-WHAT?’, ‘I think he’s REALLY lost his mind this time, he’s talking more gibberish than usual.’
Well, cool your jets, hombres and homb…-r…ess…es(?) because, as always, after just a little too much rambling, I’ll explain myself…
What a ‘shimmy’ is is a kind of a ‘move’ and why this is a ‘big’ one is because KREDDIBLETROUT.COM has moved (shimmied) over to bigger, shinier, faster digs! That’s right, after months of seclusion and clandestine activities (me in the basement whisper-cursing at my computer in the middle of the night trying to build the new site) kreddibletrout.com 3.0 is FINALLY ready to set sail on the information super-highway. Or… do something more graceful than sailing on a highway. If it were the information super-waterway… that’d make terrific sense, but… yeah…
It’s still got a few bugs and kinks and weirdnesses, but it’s mostly good to go. If you see something wrong. please point it out via my contact section.
So, as always I’ll demand that you
Yours truly has once again been featured on the redbubble homepage. This time it’s with the shot ‘close ups’. Last time this happened… I don’t remember… but it has…. I swear.

SOMETHING IS COMING TO KREDDIBLETROUT.COM… is it SCARY? This is a nightmare scenario. What’s coming is not so much.
The Kreddible Trout Boxing Day Bonanza Extravaganza Bargain Blowout Sale Bonanza Sale has reaped a lucky victim… er… ‘customer’! Some swank, art savvy individual drove off the lot in this Kreddible Trout Activewear adaptation of ‘fossil’. This may be the first of it’s kind and, coincidentally, I sold a print version of it just a few weeks ago. Is ‘fossil’ going to be the next most popular item? Will it beat my all time best selling ‘nothing is real anymore’ t-shirt? Tune in again next (mumble-mumble) to find out!
and here’s the all time cham-peen
‘nothing is real anymore’:
and here’s one of my new favorite shots… that hasn’t sold yet… (but will)
‘late 60s robotic aspirations’:
and here’s the end of this blog entry:
So, it appears that I’ve neglected Ye Aulde Bloggue for some time… there’s dust everywhere… stuff’s gone bad in the fridge… Morto the Goldfish is… well, enough about that.
I’ve neglected you, bloggue, and for that I am sorry.
I’ve been pretty busy and I do have a couple of big surprises on the horizon. One involving Kreddible Trout Photographic Enterprises and the other involving Kreddible Trout’s alter-ego William Foley, the actor.
The former I’ll leave a secret until THE BIG REVEALING hopefully January 1st, but possibly a little later.
The later I’ll blab about right now! I am currently in rehearsals for a re-mounting of a show that I helped create and co-write. It’s a fantastic, epic, tremendously entertaining and funny-as-hell, re-embellishing of the legend of Robin Hood. Seven years ago, at Shakespeare by the Sea in Halifax Nova Scotia, we began to create this piece which has been through many revisions and re-mounts since. It is now being produced at Hart House Theatre in Toronto and will be running from January 11th to the 26th. I will be resuming my role as The Sheriff of Nottingham with some old friends and some new, extremely talented actors who are going to knock my socks off.
This show is a part of my heart. I’m often proud of shows I’m in as I’ve been quite fortunate to have worked with some very fine, talented people on some fantastic shows over the years, but this show I helped create with some people who are very dear to me. It’s come a long way in 7 years and been though a lot of revisions, and I still fondly remember crafting scenes, beats and gags that have remained intact since our first go at it in 2005. With the masterful rewriting of the music and the new energy and input of the new members of the cast, this time it’s sure to be EPIC. Heck, it already was.
and buy your tickets soon. I do believe they’re already selling two months in advance!
