4 is enough

filed under:blogs and

At last count I have 4... ur... 5 blogs on the internets.

All but this one are dead, but to be honest the one that died was the LJ. LJ was cool for a while but I ended up leaving for Blogger because it worked and looked better.

The latest is on Vox. I got that one just a few days ago for the same reason I got the others, as a place-holder for names I may want in the future. Territorial pissings of my nic just to makes sure some randoms don't get the addys I want.

But Vox seems more of a community than I want.

So yeah, 4... ur... 5 blogs is enough.

And no, the picture has nothing to do with this post.

Long month ahead... Pt 2

filed under:, and

If the title of this post sounds familiar it's because I posted Pt 1 about a year ago.

Last year it was about being nominated for an Emmy. This year it's about being nominated for 3 Emmys.

GAAAAAAHHHH!!! WTF?!?!?!? Has the world gone totally bonkers? 3 fucking nominations?!?!?!??

What's really cool is that my office mate "Bob" was nominated too. What's really cool is that everybody in the Promotions Dept. (not "Bob"'s or my dept., we edit for them) had something nominated. If you go by nominations our work kicked some major ass!

What's really bad is that four of us are against each other in one category. It gives us a pretty good chance of beating the other 2 mooks in that category but at least 3 of us are going to lose.

Luckily, I'm nominated in 2 other cats as well but I'm just planning on winning nothing so I can have fun and enjoy the award ceremony.


So yeah, I have a long month ahead...

In celebration of Talk Like A Pirate Day...

What kind of Pirate are you?
created with
You scored as Captain Jack Sparrow. You are definitely quirky and often mistaken for mad but if anyone is truly paying attention they can see there is method to your madness. You try really hard to be bad but in the end you tend to do the right thing.

Rock And Roll Confidential | Your Band Sucks

filed under:,

After sounding out a few guys about forming a band I'm starting to get frustrated.

A band is a special thing. If one piece is wrong the whole thing falls apart. It has to gel just right.

Part of the problem is that a couple of the guys have young kids and don't really have the time they think they have. Guess what guys, having a family is a big obligation. If you have a baby you need to be home. Two others just didn't have it. They we're good guys but they couldn't keep the beat.

I did however get my office mate "Bob" to commit to drums. Big step.

I'm hoping to end up with me on guitar, "Bob" on drums and a couple of guys to pick up piano and bass. I really want a piano player, not a synth player.

But at this point I feel like I've been stopped. It's just taking so long to find the right people.

So the brick wall picture serves me well. It's an obstacle, but it can be knocked down.

It also represents a recurring theme of bad band promo photos. Rock And Roll Confidential has the best of the worst.

I was on the couch just kind of vegging out after dinner when out of nowhere the boy started screaming "OHMYGOD, OHMYGOD, OHMYGOD!!!" from the iMac.

This not being his typical computer behavior I asked him what was wrong.


"There's something wrong with Wilco?"


After he calmed down I found out that Wilco is coming to town. This is a big deal. San Antonio is not a Wilco town. In fact it's been called "The Heavy Metal Mecca of the World" for good reason, it's true. Metal bands make sure to stop by because they know that they'll sell more tickets in San Antonio than anywhere else on the tour. In fact the hard rock/early metal band Legs Diamond used to reunite once a year just to play in San Antonio.

The show is at a very small amphitheatre that also triples as a bar and a train station. We got tickets online so I have no way to gauge what the crowd will be like but I can't imagine that'll be more than 1000.

On one hand I want them to have a great turnout, but I'd kinda like "An Intimate night with Wilco".

Lost Season 2 DVD Easter Egg.

filed under:, and

We ran by Best Buy and picked up the Lost Season 2 DVD box.

We got home late so we didn't have time to actually watch any episodes, so I went straight to the extras disk.

It starts out with a Dharma style intro with Dr. Marvin Candle talking the 3 Phases of some. experiment or something and blah, blah, blah. After the intro the screen gives you a choice of 3 Phases of the experiment to choose.

Use your left and right buttons to navigate to the "Phase 3" button. With the selector on "Phase 3" arrow up and press enter or play. Sit back and watch a hidden short about Dharma cookies.


I wonder if people would notice if they started showing up in my lunch?

Dear Apple,

Thank you for letting me know that you have new television commercials.

I can't ell you how much of a joy it is to go to and have my experience made richer by forcing to wait while the Quicktime movie of your newest commercial loads slowly on my computer.

I really needed to get to your support page, but your movie is very, very important to me.

Feel free to keep adding your new commercials to your front page so I can see them as soon as they come out.

Maybe when one of your commercials is playing on my computer it might also be playing on my TV! That would be crazy!

Thanks again



Looks like Stevo Jobsolino read my little blog post. He caved and put some new iMac models on Apple's front page.

Damn right, Jobs. Don't let it happen again, asshat.
