Buy now DJ...

So my buddy, and Showit Web partner, Todd passed along some incredibly valuable words of wisdom to me when I was very young. He sat me down and said "DJ, buy all the toys you want before you get married." ...so after a rough couple of weeks I decided it was time for DJ to get himself a little treat. So yesterday I was down in Santa Monica having dinner with Keats and Shyla and I couldn't resist picking up some fun goodies at the Mac store.



I got these Bose headsets that are insanely awesome b/c they take away the noise - it's really trippy to experience total silence but I'm getting used to it...and then I also got some "Swanky" (as Keats described) sunglasses...I didn't know what that word meant but I smiled and said thank you.

Then today I finished it off with a camera that David Beckstead convinced me to buy. He was showing me some of his incredible shots while we were up in Canada last week and I knew I had to get one so be on the lookout for some fun fisheye shots from a full frame sensor of my new 5d! Whoa! Here's the first pic from it of me on my little balcony! :D

Haha!!!!!!!
That's awesome! lol! I was looking at getting the 5D today too...but decided that I can't really process any of the pictures on a shot laptop so I went for the computer instead!
...you do know that that headset now makes you an official dork right? Well..I guess you can counter act it with the glasses!! ;)
I'm sorry you had a rough couple weeks! I hope that stuff made you feel better! :)

I bought the 5D and 15mm fisheye after playing with them at a RMSP digital weekend in KC. (BTW...my wife does not know that I have a 5D...hope she doesn't read this...)

Mary Jane said...

Yeah, the week in Canada was pretty rough, I'd have to admit.

amynave said...

Ya, I agree Janey:) Sitting in a boat with girls and the sun beating down on you could wear you out.

Yay DJ! The 5D totally rocks my world. Let us know when... oops I mean IF it becomes your new primary camera!

So, does this sudden shopping spree mean you're getting married soon?

PS - 5D rules!

Shyla said...

See Deej... Told you those glasses were HOT! ;)

...I just thought of this - these "silencing" headphones might come in really handy after I get married! LOL

mark said...

haha you think that about the scilencing headphones now.
just wait till you fall in love, her voice will be so beautiful to you, you won't be wanting to keep it from your ears.

Deyl said...

OpenSourcePhoto said...

LOL - I offered but you paid!

Kevin Meyers said...

Deyl!! What's the secret to actually getting to paying for DJ?! You must be very very sneaky.
