Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms...
With Descender ending in a few months, I’ve been scrambling to find new comics to read. This desire for “new” has even led me to go back through old stuff. Both stuff that I’ve read and want to revisit and some old stuff that’s new to me.
I’ve complained about cars a lot lately… both the concept of cars in general and my own car (although I may not have explicitly pointed out that last bit). I feel an explanation is in order. I’ve just been waiting to, ideally, ensure that it’s all over before I dug myself in for the post.
Remember those old print ads and commercials with the bright monochromatic backgrounds and the dancing black silhouettes sporting bright, white iPods?
Why is Donald Trump
trying so hard to destroy
the world that we love?
Last Thursday, May 3, marked the 30th anniversary of one of my all-time favorite albums ever made… Living Colour’s debut Vivid.
Yup, a few people did indeed guess last week’s challenge photo correctly. No, you didn't need to get as specific as “Superman.” How could you? Alas...
Being that Instagram is my only social media outlet of late, I’ve actually gone back through my feed of, oh, 3,810 posts...
I tried two new things with this video. I’m pretty proud of the results. First, did you know you can record video right from the screen of your iPhone? Yep! And I did! Second, I also did voiceover narration of the video through iMovie.
At work, we have a committee that I’m on called Thrive. It’s dedicated to providing information on and creating events that promote health and wellness, not just physical, but mental and emotional as well.
I’ve been listening to a lot of metal and punk music lately. It’s really been filling a de-stressing need I have. So this shot of Nathan from October 2016 channeling his Sid Vicious-ness fit the mood perfectly.
So I started a video today and actually thought I’d finish it until I realized I needed to record narration.
April is over already?? What the ever-loving heck??
If not for the color distortion, more than just the two or three people who guessed this Macro Monday challenge photo correctly would likely have gotten it.
The other day, I was listening to Queen’s Flash Gordon soundtrack and was reminded of the line in the movie uttered by General Kala, “What do you mean, ‘Flash Gordon approaching’??”
I got some horrible news early this past week...
I'm just going to put it out there... I am scared to see The Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1. There. I said it.
Back in 1987, I was visiting my friend Steve in Kentucky. In the year since we’d last met up, he had changed a lot as kids who are 12 going on 13 are wont to do.
Is the Lava Game just some kind of ingrained thing for all kids? You know the one... where you declare the floor to be “lava” and you must do everything you can to avoid touching it?
I HATE CARS!
I HATE CARS!!
I HATE CARS!!!
I get pretty excited when someone who has never correctly guessed a Macro Monday challenge photo finally gets one. It’s pretty darn cool.
With all the acquisition and splitting apart discussions regarding Yahoo of late, my photographer friends and I that have or still are users of Flickr have been wondering what will happen to our beloved photo storage/sharing app.
Despite a strong desire to sleep, I got up, showered, and went to Record Store Day 2018.
When we first moved into our home, our next-door neighbors were a nice elderly couple. We didn’t really associate with them too much, but it was very friendly. He particularly took interest when he saw me with the garage door open and power tools running. He was a project guy, for sure.
Back in the day when I still had a French press, I used to get my coffee beans a little overground.
Remember those cool little six-second videos I used to produce and publish via the Vine app a handful of years ago? Yeah, the service is gone after Twitter killed it in October 2016, but you can still check out the videos online. It’s just not the easiest service to navigate.
It blows my mind that you can spend a thousand or more dollars on a way cool laptop like the one I have for work and, despite this already excessive cost, buying a brand new power adapter for it still costs anywhere from $50-80 depending on how fast you want your laptop to charge.
Hey, sorry for the delay on this post. Typepad had scheduled maintenance last night and I couldn’t get a post written. So this is gonna be backdated. Anyway...
If you follow my Instagram account, you may have seen this...
As a family with a childish boy and a five year old (see what I did there?), we’re still in a bit of shock over the news that Toys ‘r’ Us is closing down.
It’s true. They were warned... They are doomed... And on Friday the 13th, nothing will save them.
Nathan was always kinda odd when it came to stuffed animals. For the first nearly four years of his life, he didn’t care.
Katie and I had a little bit of home reno fun this past Sunday. We redid Nathan’s room. Technically this is about the third or even fourth time we’ve redone this room in the last six years. Whatevs.
Remember what a big deal this was for us?
I guess I had two toughies in a row. No correct guesses. But I knew it would be a difficult one. It was more an attempt to make you look at something common in a different way.
