Remastered Clips Status

The first clip I shot was a very short test clip of Abby's oily soles.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Well, well. It seemed like it took forever, but the majority of the clips that appeared on the site in various formats and sizes have all been upscaled and remastered into the current format. I say majority for a couple of reasons.

The first reason is that a few of these clips have holiday themes. When I was remastering five clips per week for the last few months, I would time the holiday clips (ie. Halloween and Christmas) to fall on the weeks of that holiday. Being I have finished remastering before Valentine's Day, for example, I will add those Valentine's Day clips in on this year's Valentine's update. So be ready to be getting some of Layla's and Cierra's feet and maybe even a cavity on that week!

The second reason is due to the original clips being either lost or corrupt. The clip with Mindee and Mariah comes from an entire photo set that I lost on my old laptop. I had the clip, but no pictures, but now all this time later, I cannot locate the clip either. I've been through both my laptop and my old eMac, but no luck!

During this remastering phase I came across a number of clips that for some reason read as corrupt on the CD's I burned them to. I cut out a few muffed up segments of clips during the remastering, but I've had issues with total clips in some cases. One of the clips of Lexi just won't work. It really sucks because that clip worked just fine on one of the last updates before I started to remaster all of them. I don't understand digital media and its quirks. You sometimes just have to deal with that sort of crap when it comes at you.

I don't think anyone would have noticed, but some of the last clips I remastered last week were very short. Those clips didn't even exist on the site prior, but I wanted to add them in for everyone to view. A number of those clips were some of the first I shot just messing around with the video function on the camera. None of the girls had ever done a video clip before, nor had I. Again, I thought it would be nice to post them anyhow.

I hope everyone has enjoyed these clips in their new format and there will be new never before seen clips with each new update. I am certain you will enjoy those as well!

1K Club - Madison's Mini-Interview

Madison feet have been in more than 1,000 photos - making her the site's first model to do so.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

No, I'm not writing a column about a super robot made in the image of Madison called the Madison 1,000. Nope, but that would be super cool and I am sure you'd all want one!

The 1,000 I am talking about here stand for photos. Madison was the first model to reach 1,000 photos in her galleries. Between her solo galleries and galleries where she's posed with the likes of Lauryn, Molly, and Bethany, she has a grand total of 1,064 photos at the time of this column.

I just posted a 90 photo gallery dedicated to my favorite aspect of those size 8.5 feet and that is her long narrow soles. I often tease her about having big feet, even though they're actually quite average in size. They just look rather big and most people seem to think they look larger in the photos too. The glass table set that went up this week, shown above, has a lot of examples of that.

Just as I went to begin this column I sent a quick text message to Madison to congratulate her on being the first to 1,000 photos. Here is how our conversation went:

Patrick: Web site should be updated in about 30 minutes. Congrats as you are the first model to break 1,000 photos.

Madison: OMG. That's totally absurd. Lol. But thank you. Lol.

Patrick: It must have been this 90 photo set going up here.

Madison: Hahaha... Nah, that couldn't have anything to do with it.

Patrick: And to think I have two more huge sets waiting. Should I commend you on first to 2,000 while I am at it? Lol! Only 936 left to go.

Madison: Hahaha... OMG, that's pure insanity.

So once again, congrats to Madison for being the site's first model to 1,000 photos. She's been here since the beginning and will be soon featured as a Wu's Feet Links feature model and she can't wait.

New Year with New Plans

Arkano will be getting his own gallery in the Downloads section.

The blog below was originally published in Soles of Silk's Column section. It was archived and then republished here in 2016.

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone had a fun and safe New Year. I ended up falling asleep on a friend's couch and slept like crap all night. Once I got home around 9 a.m., I fell quickly asleep in my own bed and didn't get up to almost 5 p.m. Ouch!

So here we are in 2008 and I have some new ideas and plans for this site. As an artist and creative person, I always strive to keep things fresh, but never to detract from the total package of what it is I am working on, in this case, Soles of Silk.

Those of you who have been members for the last couple of months have already seen some redesigns and reorganization of certain sections of the site, such as this Columns section. My next goal is to redo the Downloads section and put some organization to its content. Wallpapers, avatars, artwork, etc will all be getting their own sections accessible from the Downloads page itself. I am also going to introduce a section for Arkano as he keeps sending me great designs and artwork, a few of which I've held off posting until I can get that section established.

Another item I want to fix up is the update list on the home pages in the members and guest areas. The text descriptions are nice, but I'm thinking along the lines of some thumbnail previews going on there. Maybe icons to represent photo, video, download, etc.

Of course I'm always looking to bring in some new models whenever the chance arises. I already know of several who want to pose or have said they would, so I'd keep an eye out for some fresh feet debuting in 2008. As far as the existing sole mates go, I've already talked to a number of them about getting some photos done in the next couple of months. A few of them regularly pose anyhow, but some are a little harder to chase down.

Speaking of existing models, Madison is set to be a Wu's Feet Links feature model in March. She's excited about getting the chance to be up there for all to see. The previous two feature galleries, Carmen's Blue Jeans & Toes set, and Kimmie's and Kellie's Football Fun set, have been quite popular. I'm always looking to outdo myself, so you'll just have to wait and see those size 8.5 feet in a few months.

As for the rest of the year, who knows what that will bring. It has been a fun ride so far and I'm looking forward to keeping this site going and growing. I appreciate each and every member and model. I wish you the best in 2008!
