What's new at the Explosion 5000?

Alfonso Soriano breaks a bat
It's been almost two months since I updated Blog Mule readers. Sorry folks! Fortunately, plenty has been happening over at The Andy Aupperlee Explosion 5000. If you haven't dropped by in awhile, check out my new "about" page. I've added links to various non-Explosion places where my photos have been published/exhibited.

So, what else is new? Well, immediately upon arriving back in Seattle, I embarked on a bar crawl through the University of Washington's "U-District." Several days later, I attended an extremely hip party to kickoff Product Runway. WTF is Product Runway? It's fashion, models, designers, fancy drinks and wild creativity.

Shortly after blogging about fabulous fashion, I jumped on a plane to St. Louis and spent time at the world class Boeing Leadership Center. When my week of wining-and-dining Boeing style wrapped up, I hopped another flight to Chicago. I caught Starfucker (for the second time in a week) at the Empty Bottle and hit up a Cubs game with the boys. Kyle Koster of the Chicago Sun-Times saw some of shots and posted them on his blog.

After my swing through the Midwest, I returned to Seattle and checked out our new soccer team, The Seattle Sounders. I went with the Bungalow, so of course some shenanigans ensued.

Drinking in Seattle is serious business. As a blogger, I felt it was my civic duty to attend Hop Scotch, a benefit for the Seattle International Film Festival. Like any good citizen, I drank my fair share of microbrews while managing not to break/lose my camera.

Sure, I've been partying and having fun. Don't worry though, I'm still trying to do some serious stuff. I kicked off a new series called "Scene from 99." Every couple of weeks I'm going to post a new image of Seattle's iconic Highway 99. The first installment is up, and I hope to shoot more soon!
