BrianB  I take pictures of things. Bugs. People. Bug-people. I am also a musician: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheBrianBonelli

Found this large, handsome jumping spider wandering around the house the other day. This is the wonderfully named platycryptus undatus. Check out that mustache! He's a silver fox. He was also really friendly, although he did try to eat the graphite tip of my pencil (he was transfixed by it at first, but lost interest after pouncing on it and learning it wasn't food). Despite the fact that these spiders are big a bit scary at first, they are completely harmless, smart, friendly, and kinda cute if you just look a little closer, plus they eat all the bad bugs, so DON'T KILL THEM.

Caught this female cricket in the act of molting the other night so I decided to film it. Here's a time lapse video of its wings drying out (sped up 1500%). This was handheld so I apologize for the shakiness. Be sure to watch all 3 parts - there's a shocking SURPRISE ENDING!

True story. Anywho, as much as I would love to imagine Wes Anderson listening to and enjoying my music, sadly I believe he's the only person on the planet who would think that an album of instrumentals about presidents just wasn't quirky enough.

Took a photo of some zebra longwings in flight. Nothing is quite in focus in this picture but it looks nice so I’m going to pretend this was done intentionally.

Spotted a praying mantis the other day. Watched it unsuccessfully stalk some bugs for about 45 minutes. After a while it just gave up and started staring back at me...hungrily...

Today is the birthday of Leon Theremin. I can only imagine he rolls over in his grave every time I play the instrument that bears his name. Here are some of my favorite shots of me onstage with Clown Vomit over the years. The first two are by @robotmojo, the next by Marissa Fenn, the one of me in the wedding dress is by @schmeltzman I think, and I have no idea who took the rest.

Today is the birthday of the great @nintendo composer Koji Kondo. Musically, he has probably influenced me more than anyone else. Here's Luigi's cover of "Story Music Box" from Yoshi's Island. Fun Fact: This is the very first song he decided to learn on the harp!
