I can relate. —from David Lynch’s Lost Highway.
The poise of this 15-year-old addressing the UN is amazing and her words spank the grownups who are too immature to properly address climate change.
Here we are in a new year and I’m still signing my checks, “Please don’t kill me 2018!” I hope you have the best year yet in spite of all the challenges we may face.
We can finally scrape all of that 2016 goo away and move forward to 2017. I think this is going to be our year.
The horror of watching something terrible unfold right in front of you makes it nearly impossible to look away. The 2016 election is such a train wreck, the candidates’ voices like the horrible screeching of metal, so much vitriol like blood spilling onto the tracks. All the world’s a stage and the greatest nation in […]
My wife and I swapped iPads. She had an iPad 2. I had an iPad mini. Same hardware, different sizes. I didn’t use the mini much because it was too small to enjoy some of the work (and play) I enjoy. She used the larger iPad constantly, but found it hard to tote around. Now, […]
Let’s just say this time of year is super busy in my line of work.
In a world where we are able to look up or around us and be completely awestruck by the surrounding beauty, I wonder why we stare at screens so much or sometimes dwell on petty matters. Just let go and live!
More spiders than you think. High humidity illuminates gossamer baskets that cover the shrubbery.
Standing in line at the deli waiting to get deep-fried chicken tenders for lunch thinking why not publish a blog now? It’s not like it’s the 1990s and I have to be tethered to a desk to publish something online. Today is my wife’s birthday. I keep thinking she will catch up with me, but […]
Please, someone, hold me accountable to writing on this blog. Is there anybody out there?
Juan Thompson, on his father Hunter S. Thompson: I am proud of this man. I respect and admire his vitality, his courage, his insight, his perverse resistance to security and predictability, his deliberate disregard for propriety, his ability to make me see and think differently. Ultimately, I love and respect him because he really lives. […]
After I decided to change from Movable Type to WordPress I stopped following development to focus on my current content management system. I’m a year behind on MT news from Six Apart, but check out this claim chowder. First, there’s this: “As of today, and forever forward, Movable Type is open source.” Anil Dash, December […]
I would love to see this scene reenacted in costume by Matt Damon (yes, including the Mario backpack). No smile. No breaking the fourth wall with a knowing smirk at the camera. Just a word-for-word reenactment in this exact set. That, my friends, would be a thing of beauty.
Our home improvement has evolved beyond the expensive necessity of maintaining structural integrity to making our house a home that is a joy to live in. Three years ago on Thanksgiving eve, while checking the progress on a 17-pound turkey smoking in our Big Green Egg, the deck outside our French doors on the second […]
Eddie Vedder strums acoustic guitar while Jeanne Tripplehorn (yes, “Alex Blake” from Criminal Minds) sings the Rolling Stones’ “Shattered” as Julie Andrews. A hidden talent we should all remember.
Just in case you’re wondering why this site looks a little different, I updated the typeface to Latin Modern Roman for serif fonts and Latin Modern Sans for sans serif.
I’m going to want to be able to find this again later and you need to get with the watching buddy. Video clocks in at just over five magical minutes.
Labor Day for us meant our daughter came home for her first break from Valdosta State University, which was great. We miss her when she’s gone, which already kicked in after she left earlier today to return to campus. We watched The Shining together; her first time. During the first half she was rolling her […]
Shame on you if you don’t know about xkcd, the best comic on the Interwebs! This is the only way anyone should record dates on their computer. I have years of files that I can quickly flip through to find just about anything.
