shootin’ and ridin’ and drinkin’

August 31st, 2008 · 2 Comments

Things I did yesterday: Went for a long ride on the motorcycle with Jessica and my brother, Chris, who recently passed his motorcycle test on the first attempt (something I wasn’t able to accomplish). He rides a Piaggio MP3, which is actually a pretty impressive ride. Shot aluminum cans with an official Red Rider BB […]

video: hug a developer today

August 31st, 2008 · No Comments

This one goes out to all of my developer friends out there: It’s scary how many of these types of stories I’ve heard from them over the years. Heck, I lived through a few of these stories myself during the three years I worked as a Data Analyst for a medical insurance copy. What a […]

reminder: comics going once, going twice…

August 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I have a few big comic book auctions ending today in my “everything must go because I don’t want to carry it to the next apartment” sale. Among them is a run of issues #1-28 of DC’s Teen Titans series. This was an excellent series that’s difficult to part with, but I’m trying to only […]

video: save ferris?

August 29th, 2008 · 1 Comment

After yesterday’s Uwe Boll and Postal video post, I felt it was necessary to cleanse the palate a bit.
