Swimming

So I started swimming. Last night I went 3000 yards in an hour. Not bad for being out of it for a year. I’ve always loved swimming on a certain level. There’s no impact, just a “plodding along” type of thing. People hate it because it’s boring compared to running or biking. There’s nothing to […]

The future of media

I see a singularity in media, and it comes in the form of a special combo visor/glove. Parts of visor can be activated, or it can completely take over your visual space. It acts as your phone, home theater, gaming system, tv screen, etc. This way the visor can enhance the real world or replace […]

Chucky

When I was very young, I spent a lot of time at the Steins house: View Larger Map Around the corner was a kid named Chucky. He was a little younger than Matt Stein and me, so we pushed him around. He was really weird. I don’t think his parents lived in that house; I […]

Ever since we got extended cable services, zack n cody and hannah montana have been looping over and over, engaging my kids’ full attention the whole […]

Need a grant

My idea is so good I know I could get a grant. How do you get an artist grant, anyone?

French Fries

In Fort Erie, Canada, where I go once a month to deposit a check, there’s a little french fry truck that I always hit up for a medium w/ketchup salt and vinegar. Eli and Nan came this time and got their fry on. Next time I have to remember to get a small, not a […]

Eli's trip to the dentist

So Eli had a run in with the dentist and went from his jolly self to a smear over the course of 1 hour. He has to go back twice; it’s going to be hell getting him back once. I remember going through hell when I was his age at the dentist. After my mom […]
