Trading Places

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, […]

Head in the Clouds

   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!

Live from Walmart

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 […]

Father's Day Sentiment

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. […]

Old Claim Chowder

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 […]

Matt Damon as Ranting 13-Year-Old

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.

Floors, Pain, and Home Improvement

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 […]

Tweaking

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.

Mind. Blown.

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

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 […]

Date this way!

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.
