365 days of blogging:countdown to doom


My blogging year

I posted this at myspace hell:

A New Years pronouncement that is fraught with doom and ill portent and pain and failure. Also, probably, cats.

I will Blog every day in 2008. At least once a day. 365 days of blogging fun. This will happen here. One post (at least?) a day, may not be a good post, may only be an embeded video that you could find on eight hundred and fifty three thousand other blogs, may only be a link, or a quote, or pictures of cats, but it'll be there. Everyday.

Come here to watch me fall.

note: I realise I am not the first person to do this, I'm quite possible the last, but I'd like to think I'm the one with the fatest head picture on all the internets.

also note this: This is my second attempt at writting this, the first disappeared down the tubes. That version was funnier. By far. Trust me on this. But you don't get to see that, you get this. I'm sorry.

Merry Yule.

We went outside this afternoon to romp around in the snow, we got all bundled up nice and tight.

Don't worry, we did put boots on before we went out.

The Dude did not like it out there.

So we just stayed out for a few minutes.

I am quite fat.

This was the a moment of bliss. It didn't last long, but it was nice.

And then we went in and had cocoa.

Play-Doh (which i keep spelling wrong)

Turns out that when you take a whole bunch of different colored Play-Doh and mix it all together repeatedly, it turns into a grayish black color. Kind of charcoal like. Still fun to play with, just not as colofull.

I have wasted precious internet space sharing this useless observation with you.

I'm just saying.

Actually, the really does describe me rather well, except for the pilot part...

Barfing at 0 g's

This is teh hawsome:

Barf Bags Dont Work at 0 Gs - Watch more free videos

Although I feel badly for the people involved, I appreciate their sacrifice for my (and your) entertainment.

Okay, the embedded video player kinda screws up my blog template, but that's okay, it's worth it.

Indiana Jones doesn't ride "Bitch"

'scuse the bad language.

I don't really hate Shia Labeouf, but I found this really funny:

Tee-hee. And also, Correct!

This comes from this website here, which I have only just now discovered but decided that I like and will read often. And so should you.

First Snow

It's the first snow of the season, and it's kind of a doozy. Everything is closed and we are staying home. We brought some snow inside for The Dude to play with:

The Wife doing the shoveling thing (don't worry my turn will come)

(she hates pictures of herself...)

Be a good day to hunker down and watch all of The Lord of The Rings.

But I don't think that's gonna really happen. :( We have to do some work from home, and soon as we can find some boots for The Dude we gotta go make snow angels. :) FUN!

The Dude Codes?

The Dude has taken to typing letters at the computer:

I think he was trying to write Binary Code

I love Warren Ellis

Goddamn, but do I love Warren Ellis.

Paradise Island

A friend at work shows me this picture of The Paradise Island Atlantis resort. Which looks like this:

Seeing this picture made me launch into this whole riff about how this place is clearly Natural Disaster /Terrorist /Serial Killer bait, that this is just designed to attract disaster and mayhem and death. Sometimes my brain works that way; it thinks of stuff. :)

Anyway, that thought lead to this:

and then I used a flickr tool to make this:

I need to make this movie. I don't know how I'll do it. But I WILL do it. I NEED this. Humanity NEEDS this.

All these pics and more can be found here. Thanks for my indulgence.

Fun with My Head

So, I've been playing with Photoshop elements, and I'm a total amateur, but I made these and now you can see them. As I said in an earlier post, I'm having trouble matching up skin tones, but sometimes that just makes it funnier.

The head is way to big on that one...

This worked out nicely with my expression and the angle and the color. I like that one.

Not quite a matching shade of sepia is it? But I like how ambivalent my expression is in relation to the action of the photo.


I love my wife the way she is, but i thought she might enjoying seeing me as Mcconaughey. Again, skin tones, not really matching so good.

This one just makes me want to wash my hair. I don't look good like this. Viggo looks good like this, me, not so much. My chins really take away from the whole look.

I can live with that.

"...The Son becomes The Father..."

The Dude (well no, not that one) can recognize Superman and Batman, he will ask to watch Superman or Batman, he will play Superman. He sometimes recognizes the Flash.

This is good and just and as things should be.

He's getting older now, and I think it's time he learned something new, time for him to take his next step in Growing Up Geek, it's time for the big guns, the mack daddy, all women want him, all men want to be him.

Time for:

Oh yeah.

I used to have that.

That's what we call GETTIN' IT DONE!

It's true, and you know it.

If The Dude can pass this test, than he will be a man.

And I will give him his lightsaber.

P.S. As I wrote this post, Space Seed was on the teevee in the background. Oh Yeah, Baby. Oh Yeah.
