Year 2009: first transmission from CLINARD

'Twas a particularly special holiday season visiting the family and friends due to the fact that yours truly turned 30 years of age on January 2nd. I'm saying "so long" to my twenties. So long 2008, and all the years before you (both in the Common Era and how ever many more there were B.C.E.). As time continued its march into 2009, I took some time to photograph family and friends.

Above is the one and only Mr. James Fain. Perhaps one of the most knowledgeable guys in my hometown, it was great seeing him and having him sit for these portraits. All the while listening to his remarkable collection of experimental/noise discs and LP's.

So here's to a great start to 2009. I'm excited to see how things continue to shake out.

More always,

Mike
