Son of a.....

Blogger just ate the 60 pictures and witty comments I had just spent the past two hours posting.


I'm not doing anymore tonight. I'll get to the thrift store post next week. I swear.

A Mega Update

Holy crap! Has it really been 2 weeks since I've updated this? Oh mylanta. Well, I know this won't satisfy the ThriftPost jones (but hopefully I'll take care of that this Weds w/half-price thrift store day).

First off, I'd like to congratulate Darrin and Maryann on the birth of their baby girl, Norah Elizabeth, who decided to come into the world this past Friday.

To Darrin and Maryann--you guys are the greatest and Norah is lucky to have you as parents!! (and when you're ready for a night out, let us know, we'll babysit).

The second major update is news that the TwistedZen website has gone through a MAJOR overhaul. Go ahead, check it out, I'll wait. Who knew my ISP had such cool web design tools? Well, I mean, I do. Now.

And in other video news, I finally finished this year's installment of the Dylan Birthday Video Project (I can't tell you the name yet, because it's a surprise).

I've got some other family videos to work on before the fall socc…

Got news today that Syd passed. I call him Syd, like we're old friends. We're not, but I would have liked it.
If you don't know who Syd Barrett was, go ahead and google it. I'll wait. Back? Cool.

He founded The Pink Floyd back in the 60's.

The Floyd remains to this day one of the only major groups that I claim as a musical influence that I have not seen live. All the others I have seen at least once (with the exception of Dylan and Springsteen, and I'm working on that). There are 3 major reasons (2 rationalizations, 1 real) for that. Reasons 1 &2: Syd Barrett and Roger Waters are no longer part of The Pink Floyd. Reason #3 (the real reason), my mom wouldn't let me go when they played the shoe at OSU.

But I still dig 'em. All the iterations of the band (I count 4 dist…

Closing the Darkroom

This really is just a quick, "hi, how are ya" kind of post.

First things first. I'd like to give a big shout out to my homeys over at Devilcake for rocking it foodcore yet again. With all the craziness this summer I hope to get out and see them before the band goes on another hiatus of undefined duration. I missed their last iteration when Darrin was still banging the skins. I actually haven't heard any of the new stuff (or re-working on the old stuff). Thank god they have a MySpace* page that I can check out. So, word.

Now on to some sad news. With only 6 posts or something completely lame like that, the TZPPhoto blog is the weakest link. Goodbye.

*Speaking of MySpace. I had a page up a while back on M(urdoch's)ySpace, but took it down because I wasn't really that keen on the idea of NewsCorp (the same fine folks that bring us the fair and balanced FoxNews) trolling the collective database to see how best to market to us. So I closed the page (and apparently so…
