Month: December 2006

  • New Year’s Eve

    So long 2006. This has been the best and the worst year of my life and it seemed like 10 years worth of events compiled into one. New Years Eve is actually my Dad’s birthday and here’s a video of him playing a coffee shop gig in 1997. He’s covering John Prine’s Be My Friend…

  • Kung Fu Sasha

    Watch out! My daughter can beat up your daughter.

  • SNL Song

  • Survivor: Cook Islands

    Last night was the final episode of Survivor: Cook Islands, the much talked about “race tribes” season. Predictably, they integrated the tribes early on, so race quickly became a non-issue in the show. We saw a few twists, a great comeback, and two opposing victory strategies. Who won and why did they win? Read on.

  • Ton of New Registered Users

    I’m not sure why, but a ton of new people registered on the site this weekend. I figured it was probably a spambot, but the addresses and usernames look real. If anyone registered in the last two days, send me an email and let me know.
