I took almost no pictures or video of my trip this weekend to Liberty Valley (outside Bald Knob, AR), but here are a few that’ll give you something other than a blank screen to stare at. On the way out, I came across these candy jewels at a truckstop. They are similarly configured like the […]

A shiny WiiFit box was waiting for me when we got back from a long weekend with the family for the Memorial Day holiday. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this game for months, and I’m pleased to say I wasn’t disspaointed. The exercises are not only a blast, but they’re actual EXERCISE – my heart rate was […]

Due to some weird bug with the SDHC card interfacing to my “new camera”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/04/26/3227/, I thought this footage was lost but I fiddled some more and it suddenly appeared yesterday. This is unedited (and way dark — it was 12:25am) footage I took on May 15th while the storm was raging. You can’t really see […]

I should probably keep my mouth shut, but rumor and innuendo at work compel me to make a case (even if it goes unheard to the people in power.) I’ve “commented before”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/01/16/3062/ on the impact former CIOs have had to my employer. (Starts with a “D”, has a slanted “e” and ends in a double […]

I apologize if some are already familiar with the genius that is this blog, but it’s too good (i.e. scarily accurate) not to pass on. Enjoy… http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.wordpress.com/

It feels like I’m running late this year — I really need to start keeping a garden journal. But I think the tomatoes are just as behind — they look smaller than at this point in previous years. Saturday I finally got time to pot them up to their last pots (I actually couldn’t find […]

Right in the middle of our “spare room remodel”:http://www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer/2008/02/06/3116/ we suffered a forced remodel in the bathroom. One evening I shut off the water as I was finishing washing my hands and a trickle could still be heard…then the “leak frog”:http://www.ideativeinc.com/leakfrog.cfm went off. I ran my hands around the pipe — that’s not a metaphor […]

I came across some old Nokia phone pics today and thought it would be fun to see the mobile phones I’ve owned all in a row. (scale is purely estimated.)

I have mentioned my recent obsession with Sufjan Stevens on numerous occasions (here, here, and also kindof here) but this music just continues to blow my mind. Today while listening through my ear phones at work, I “heard” the lyrics for what may be my new fave song for the first time.  Say what you will about pop music, […]

We had “Watermark & Co”:http://watermarkandco.com manage a reconstruction project on the spare room behind our kitchen, converting it to a library/sitting-room. We think it looks great. Now we just have to pull out all the boxes of books we own to fill the shelves. Here’s a flick set showing the progress from about January 14 […]

Sandy let me on to a new health craze that’s apparently sweeping the nation. The Hawaii Chair lets you excercise while SITTING DOWN! Ellen was kind enough to do a demo on her show.

This NYT article got me thinking today. I’ve been a pretty solid veggie for the past 2 years, and aside from the occasional sushi-related back slide, I’m pretty sure it’s going to stick this time. I’ve always said that my reasons for going meat free were more practical (texture and taste icks me out, mainly) […]
