Rebecca Hollis is best known for season one of Shot of Love, but she also runs a very successful promotional company called Mirage Entertainment. She hosts events in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and this event which was held here in Scottsdale, Arizona. The theme of the event was "Welcome to my Fantasy" and it was a two-part event kicked-off pool side at the fabulous Clarion Hotel and then continued into the night at the ultra eclectic & chic Z Lounge. My part of the event was to bodypaint model Paris Harshman in a waterproof bikini that incorporated the Mirage Entertainment logo and also to paint the logo on a male bodybuilder named Sergio. I also ended up painting small airbrush tattoos on Rebecca Hollis and a couple of the go-go dancers that were hired as entertainment.
Although I did this project a decade ago, I really wanted to get some updated photographs to add to my Lighting Design portfolio. The last pictures that I took of the Sanctuary Resort on Camelback mountain were taken with 35mm slide film and the incandescent lighting was too yellow on the daylight balanced film to be salvaged. This month I took an evening to revisit the Jade Bar and elements restaurant while there in addition to the spa and resort grounds. I had the good fortune of a full moon to keep the sky glowing bright blue much longer than the normal magical hour after sunset. The new pics have been added to my on-line portfolio at the following addresses:

My son's band Omniscient has been playing some really cool gigs and on July 4th they were on the radio. The radio program was the Dave Darin Show on KKNT 960 AM which is a show that features local music. Dave interviewed them after guitarist Justin Castro played two acoustic songs with singer Angelica Dominguez. He said they were the youngest band that he had ever had on the show and then gave them the opportunity to play their first original song "Dedicated". The show will be available for a limited time as a podcast on www.DaveDarin.com.
The band was also asked to play at the Red, White, & Boom fireworks celebration for the community of Ahwatukee on July 3rd and they have been regulars at the Golfland Rock & Ride Night Slide on Thursday nights in Mesa. They will be playing at the 2nd Fridays street festival in Mesa on July 9th and there are several other events in the planning stages.
I want to give a shout out to my wife's God-daughter Courtney Render-Orner who is on the USA Womens team for the World Championship of In-Line Hockey. As of this writing, the USA team has won three games against Slovakia (8-0), Spain (5-1), and France (6-0). Courtney has made 4 goals and 3 assists so far. To follow along with their progress, go to http://www.worldinlinehockey.org/index.php/2010/52-2010women. I also want to congratulate her for getting accepted to BUFFALO STATE.
