September 29, 2010


Just finished watching the 2nd episode of The Event. I gotta say, I reaalllly want to like this show. It’s speculative fiction, sci-fi, etc–which makes it right up my damn alley.  But they are getting the little things screwy. Don’t get me wrong, I can suspend disbelief in whole chunks and swallow a lot of […]

I have a little experiment that I try periodically just to see how long I can do it.  See how long you can do it. It’s tough, real tough. Close your eyes and try to think of nothing. Literally clear your mind. And then see how long you can hold it. I’ve never timed mine […]

Zombies versus The Devil

September 25, 2010


VS Went to see two movies this weekend. Not typical for me, but there was a movie I wanted to see and one my wife wanted to see. Resident Evil for me. Devil for her. I think I won. My movie was better. Yeah, it was. Shocking, I know. As far as Resident Evil movies […]

Are you a kid? Do you read kid stories? I’ve been reading a lot of teen fiction lately, just to sample it. I’ve never read much of it before. I must say that I am impressed.  They stories are pretty good (even though the Mockingjay book I am reading now is getting way too dark) […]

Fairemont Shields

September 14, 2010


I once had a friend who told me how relationships had been broken down by a scientist who said each person had a shield around them (invisible, of course) and this shield was their personality. He called it a Fairemont (not sure of the spelling) Shield. Basically the shield had bumps and cavities and rough […]

E-book reader thoughts

September 6, 2010


Been looking long and hard at the e-book readers lately, and I think I have a thought–I think. One brand is doing the exact right thing to succeed, while the others–not so much. You’ve got your Nook,your Sony, your Kindle, iPad, Alex, eReader, Pandigital, Kobo, Cool-er, Astak, and of course smart phones. (Bet you didn’t […]

Friends Circles

September 3, 2010


I have my annual big fantasy football draft this weekend and was thinking about my buddies I am going to see there.  I don’t typically see these guys more than once a year, but we communicate via email all the time.  For our draft, we typically meet at a local bar, get a side room […]
