Photodude: Did ya miss me?

Photo by Brad Mangin

Michael Zagaris, seen here before shooting the Padres @ Giants game on May 29, 2005, has ALL the proof.
The Photodude returns from months away, where he smoked but didn't inhale with Ricky Williams, served as an alternate on the Michael Jackson jury, searched high and low before finding Dave Chappelle in South Africa, tried to buy Manchester United before being outbid, and provided therapy for Alex Rodriguez.

Did ya miss me? Didja? Didja? Judging from my inbox, you did. You love me! You really love me!

But I digress...seriously dudes, the mailbox is too full for me to comprehend right now, so this month you get...

Random Thoughts From the Photodude:

... How about that Indy 500...especially Danica Patrick...why don't they make sports photographers that look like her? (Address all "You F-cking Sexist Pig" email to:

... Come to think of it, Indy racers are a pretty homely bunch of guys who dress bad (hey, just like Sports Shooters!) and they got Danica, so maybe there's hope....

... And quit complaining that monkeys can take photos...most of you would be LOST without auto-focus...admit it...or, try shooting without it one day...yeah, I thought so...

... Steroids in photography is soon before commissioner Robert Hanashiro has to appear before else to explain the phenomenon that is...

... Donald Miralle ... damn, dude ... you make EVERYONE look silly EVERY month...even Robert Seale can't break through with one of his portraits...sick...

... Which reminds me.... was Brad Mangin on steroids last year when he had two Sports Illustrated covers in two months?...

... Know where the proof is about Canseco and McGwire and injecting each other... in Michael Zagaris' cameras, that's where ... let's see Congress subpoena THAT! ...

...Just asking … did Kellen Winslow, Jr. take motorcycle riding lessons from Jay Williams of the Chicago Bulls ...?

... What do Darren Carroll, Matt Stanley, and David Richard have in common...?

... For all you people who started whining for an ethics policy on a freaking MONTHLY PHOTO CONTEST...get a life...quit pretending to serve your readers and face the real just want to serve yourselves...losers...

... Remember… hockey...?

...The early days of photo websites were full of bad navigation, bad music, and bad you get the feeling like I do that we are now about to enter a period where we see some REALLY BAD "interactive multimedia" (audio with stills, etc)...

... Before I forget ... read "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coehlo if you haven't already ... (just trying to prove that I read) ....

... Remember the baseball card boom of the 90's where anyone could get a contract shooting for the many card companies...well, Fleer died an untimely death on Friday the 13th of May...

-- So what is today's equivalent ... get ready ... it's ... PAPARAZZI ... where a new celeb magazine launches every month ... put those long lenses to REAL use ...

... Plus, then you won't have to worry about ethics...

(As usual, address all your bitching to
