Knott’s Berry Farm‘s roller coaster “The Silver Bullet” – it will be reflected a few more times in tomorrow’s rendering of Buena Park, California.

Today started out with an excellent find in the Bureau of Labor & Statistics Occupational Outlook Quarterly called “Geography Jobs.”(pdf)

snippet:

When people think of geography, they don’t often think of crisis management. But the study of location applies to all sorts of issues that affect people and the environment.

Geography involves more than memorizing States and capitals. It’s a unique way of looking at the world and solving problems. And for some people, it provides a way to earn a living.

“Understanding geography can help governments and businesses make better decisions,” says Michael Phoenix, a geographer for a mapping software company in Redlands, California. “People who can think spatially—think about where things are in relation to other things—are in great demand.”

Technology is creating new career opportunities related to geography. Read on to learn more about them.

It is full of information and employment statistics concerning the jobs for which my job is based on. It doesn’t get much better than that in terms of timely relevant documents. I had a conference call with Mike back in March if I remember correctly and the “mapping software company” called ESRI.

After work I rode my bike home as fast as I could to avoid the coming thunderstorm. I really really really want to buy a small wind turnbine. I’d like to attempt to run my electronics off a battery being charged by a the turbine during a thunderstorm. There is so much wind energy that is not being tapped during these intense warm fronts coming through the area! With the severity of the storms, and the collective power over-consumption, I’ve been shutting down my iMac often to reduce the chances of a freek, lightening induced, energy spike or worse a blackout. I am trying to do my part in conserving electricity- when I leave my room for work in the mornings, the only item that stays on is my electric clock, unless of course I am renderings something. Click.

This evening I had an excellent conversation with my sister who I haven’t touched bases with in a long time. I found out that her lucky ass just got back from Hawaii! It turns out that her boyfriend was just in a race from San Fran to Hawaii and she was out there greeting his arrival.

Tomorrow should be just as fun. I am going to the Thievery Corporation show with my bestfriend. It should be one of the best shows of the summer for me. Last time I saw Thievery Corporation at 930 Club I hung out in the eagle’s nest with my friend Robin and after the show went backstage with my friend Will. With their three show stint at 930 Club and the coming Operation Ceasefire Concert on the Mall, I am musically eager about tomorrow and the coming months.

The image above is from Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA. I recently found one of my old middle school girlfriends (i think we dated for a whole week) on MySpace and she gave me her address, so I downloaded her hood. It turns out that she lives only a few blocks from one of my few California memories from 1986 (I was six then and we visited Knotts Berry Farm). Right now I am rendering another projection of my childhood apartment in Ballwin, MO, but the next rendering will definitely be using this imagery. I believe that the roller coaster will end up looking like an atom….a nuclear vision will be made. But I must first sleep….
