Miss Teen South Carolina gets another shot on the Today Show.

I’m barely recovered from my trip to Denmark (I still haven’t gone through my photos!) and I’m already planning a trip to San Francisco in October.
My mom has to go there for business, so I’m tagging along and sharing her hotel room. We travel together really well, so I’m not worried about that. Plus, she gets to stay in swanky hotels that I’d never spring for on my own.
It works out great for both of us. I have my days free to roam around and she has her #1 son to go out with for dinner and drinks in the evening.
The last time I was there with her, which I think was two years ago, I had an incredible time. Other than New York, it’s my favorite (US) city to walk around with a camera. I can’t wait.
My new favorite band has yet another new video. Enjoy…
My cable plan doesn’t include the AMC channel and I really wanted to see Mad Men, a new series created by The Sopranos writer and executive producer Matthew Weiner.
I’ve been downloading the show on iTunes and then realized (after 3 episodes) that there is a season pass available for $24.99. I emailed Apple support yesterday to ask about buying the season pass and getting credit for the episodes I already downloaded.
I woke up this morning to see two responses from two different customer service reps that were sent within 3 minutes of each other.
Response 1 (8:24am):
If you choose to purchase the season pass of “Mad Men” and reply to this email, I would be happy to issue you a refund for the purchase of those duplicate episodes.
Response 2 (8:27am):
I apologize, but the iTunes Store “Complete My Album” feature is not available for TV show seasons. Therefore, if you wish to purchase the season pass for this show at this point, you will pay for and receive duplicate copies of the episodes already purchase.
I chose to ignore the second response and bought the season pass with the hope that I’ll get credit for the first 3 episodes. We shall see…
I went down the see if I could get some shots of the bridge collapse yesterday. Unfortunately, you can’t get anywhere near it, but I did find a spot where all of the media was gathered.
I hung out for an hour or so and took photos of the media and the Minneapolis police that were keeping things under control.
There was one spot where I could get a view of the bridge with my 200mm lens and one of the news guys brought me up so I could take a couple photos. I guess the big, white Canon lens made me look official.
