"Broken Places" Project Concluded!

1 comments

David W.

A photography and art project I called "broken places" that challenged several photographers to search out and photograph Jacksonville's abandoned, lost, rare, eerie, broken, or drab places and things, has concluded.

This project was about discovery and fun as we took to different areas and snapped photos of some not so known places - then adding our last finishing touches.

More team photography projects are to come. If you would like to be notified for the next project; email me at jaxscenedavid@gmail.com

Jaxscene Gift Ideas Part One

1 comments
Burro Bucks

Do you have someone that needs a cool new bag, shirt, bandana, or wallet? Why not give them a Burro Bags gift card. Let's face it, Burro has tons of stuff that your son, daughter or friend might want, so let them choose. They even have an online store so you can you can see all they have to offer.

The Fox Coffee Mug

The Fox is one of the best breakfast diners in Jacksonville. I almost didn't want to mention it because I don't want the lines in the morning to get any longer. How can you not love the art decorated walls, the staff, the food and the prices? You must have a friend that loves The Fox so get them a souvenir coffee mug. They also offer shirts if you have enough mugs. Located in Avondale.

The first ever RAM shirt sold

We all know the Riverside Arts Market is going to be around for years to come. This weekend RAM is offering their first shirts to be sold to the public. You can take the awesome feeling of shopping down by the river with you and support the market for years to come by purchasing a shirt. Who knows, it might be a collectors item one day. If you want to make sure you get one, arrive early on Saturday (opens at 10am) because quantities are limited.

Something from Arturo Clothing

Arturo shirt w/ Squid Dust design
I don't know how they do it, but the kids over at Arturo are always coming up with fresh, good looking products. Their choice of designs have always been exciting and different. When they first started out they were printing images that would purposefully annoy someone (wasp, lock, cop car). But recently they have expanded their graphics but have kept the look that makes Arturo unique. They have an online shop here.

If anyone has anything I might like to include for part two please send info to tom@reaxmusic.com

The Conclusion To My Downtown Parking Ticket

1 comments


So today I went to court. I wasn't going to originally because it was only a $25 fine. But then a friend suggested that it might be good to fight it just so it goes down in the books as a problem that people are not admitting fault to.
I would say there was probably 60 other people in the same courtroom as me contesting their parking citations, and about 10 parking enforcers present. When their cases were called the parking enforcers went up and stated their reason behind issuing the parking citation. Some of them even remembered the precise details of when they gave out the citation.
So I get called up, I plead not guilty. The parking enforcer stated why I was ticketed and I got to state my case. I told the judge I thought the freight loading sign and the City of Jacksonville website were misleading. I mentioned to the judge how she stated in the previous cases that "the sign clearly reads...". I told her that to me this sign did not clearly read I needed a permit or logos on my vehicle. I told the judge I had freight, that it was for Art Walk and I thought I could park there. I told her about the FAQ section of the City's website where it states that drivers are allowed to park there without logos or a permit in a "brief" situation, and that my situation was indeed brief. The judge told me the law states you are required to have a permit or logo to park there. She said, "I know it does not clearly state you need a permit" but if you're going to park anywhere it is your job to figure out what the sign means before you park. I asked the judge in what brief situation is it proper to park there. She replied that couldn't be decided there, it is up to the legislators to decided that.
The judge then found me guilty for not knowing exactly what this sign meant before parking in the spot, but then lowered my fine due to me being mislead by the sign and the website.
So the answer to the poll last week is that you cannot park in a freight loading zone for any reason unless you have a permit from the city or logos on both sides of your car. You can not pull into, block, or stand in that area at all without a permit or logo or you may be fined. They don't care if your excuse is Art Walk or a handicapped grandma (which I heard in court today). Maybe if your car breaks down in one of these spots...but you better have a repair bill when you go to court and you better move it out of that spot as quickly as possible.
Apparently there is no reason that would ever validate the "brief dropping off or picking up" mentioned on the the City of Jacksonville website. The only way to figure out if you are not guilty for using this excuse is to fight the case in a higher court.

Tips for not getting a ticket:
- Always park on the right side of the road. People have been getting tickets even in riverside neighborhoods for this.
- When you renew your tag don't drive your car until you put the new sticker on your license plate.
- If a meter is broken take a picture of the broken meter and call parking meter services on your ticket and report it. If you get a ticket you have to prove the meter was broke.
- Feeding a meter is illegal. Once your time is expired you will get a ticket if you don't move somewhere else.
- Park your car with the front bumper even with or slightly behind the meter post.

Jaxscene Poll: What Does This Sign Mean?

7 comments
The other day while in Downtown I talk to a parking enforcer and had a chance to discuss what this sign meant. I was wondering how many people actually know.



What does this sign mean?
As long as you have something to load or unload you can park here for up to 1 hour
Only people with loading permit or company decals on your car can park for 1 hour no one else
You can park here without a permit or decal as long as it is a brief drop off pick up situation

    Mickey King Park Get A Park Bench

    6 comments
    I don't know if many of you remember Byron King AKA Globatron blogging about getting a park bench for the park named after his father, Mickey King. Mickey King was on the City Council in 1971 and dedicated his time working with local youth in athletic programs, was an assistant director of The Boys Home, member of the Special Olympics Advisory Board, and President of the Jax Youth Football Association. I don't know how long it's been complete, but it looks like the city has finally put in a park bench with a nice sidewalk.

    From the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society:

    To finish up an awesome Movember for the Jacksonville Beardsmith Society, we’re hosting a Movember Party this Saturday, November 28th at Club TSI! It’s sure to be a fantastic event. There will be an awards ceremony commemorating those who participated this month. We’re also going to have donation boxes to help raise more money and a photo booth taking pictures provided by the very talented Jensen Hande.

    There will also be $2 Paulaner Hefe Weizen for anybody wearing a mustache (real or fake.)

    Awards will be given for the following categories:

    The Lame Mo
    This is an Encouragement Award for the Mo Bro who has tried his best, yet is still a wispy effort.

    Best Mo in Character
    As the name suggests we are looking for the Mo that matches the character/costume.

    Best Mo Bro with his Mo Sista
    This is awarded to the male/female duo with a great costume character/combination, similar to the Best Mo in Character but with the inclusion of a Mo Sista.

    Best Team Mo
    Safety in numbers with this category.

    The Ultimate Mo
    This is awarded to the Mo Bro purely on the grooming and styling of his Mo.

    Miss Movember
    The ultimate prize awarded to the stand out Mo Sista who has supported and encouraged Mo Bros.

    Man of Movember
    This is the ultimate prize awarded to the stand out Mo Bro who has the best Mo, costume and attitude. The Man of Movember is to be chosen from the finalists of the other categories. He has a true appreciation for the Mo and wears it proud!

    Miss Movember and Man of Movember will be awarded sashes to wear proudly. Other prizes include mustache-themed gifts, art, books, and more. Anyone can attend the event and enjoy drink discounts, but only Movember participants can compete for titles and prizes.

    Chelleby's Urban Angels showcased on Metrojacksonville.com

    0 comments


    Chelleby's work has fairly obvious roots in fashion photography, but her subject matter and central themes are hardly the empty headed glamour shots and moody lighting or melodramatic telenovella oevre. Indeed, her models are young, fashionable, beefy, pouty and gorgeous, but in her photography they are imbued with something more than just their obvious physical charms. Instead she concentrates on social issues with a whimsical and light hand, presenting images that are both attractive and thought provoking.... [Read full article on Metrojacksonville.com]

    Chelleby is currently looking for benefactors, gallery owners, and models, as she pushes projects to the next level. You can contact her during the artist hours between 12 - 12. 904-517-0405
