December Events at ICC

I don't know why I rack my brain trying to be 'clever' with these things. Sometimes simple and understated is the way to go.

Here's the video announcement for events@ International Christian Center (ICC).
It can be played between services, it can be played with or without sound.

Simple.

A tad boring perhaps, but it serves its purpose.


Stuff and all that

It'd be silly to say that there's not a lot going on. There is. I just don't find myself posting on ye olde blogge much these days. I blame Facebook for that to some extent. There's a slew of old friends (but not all of them , ahem ahem) on there and it's just easy to put a status on there and have a 'conversation' of sorts on there. So, that's one reason why I don't blog as much anymore.

That and I've been really frickin' busy. The video work that I'm doing with ICC/IMG is taking a lot of 'spare' time. To the tune of 10-20hours/week. And that's cool. I have to look at it as essentially a startup company where we have to bust our butts to get things rolling.

Work (my job that actually pays the bills) has been crazy, too. Things got a little difficult there. So we're all strapping ourselves in and getting ready to ride this wild economy out through 2009.

Things at home are good. Jen's still doing really well in HS. And To…

Iron Chef @ ICC

I just finished the commercial for ICC's International Chef Event. It was fun, and it cracked me up. Hope it does the same for the people who see it tomorrow.

I found a site that has all of the original broadcastings of the Japanese versions without dubs or subs. So I was pretty stoked.

Enjoy.


First Snow '08

Well, there wasn't a TON of snow or anything. But the dusting we got on Monday (which started Sunday night) did wind up sticking through the night. So I officially counted it as our first snowfall (we had flurries a few weeks ago, but they didn't stay on the ground). Here's a few pix.


The supposed end of Grilling Season (you know, it's sad, but I didn't grill ONE single time this summer. WTF is wrong with me???) I'm gonna have to grill on my birthday, I think. Yeah. Birthday steaks on the grill. Sounds like a plan.
Snow falling through the trees. I love shots like this. I'm sure I'll get more of them as the winter goes on. Snow is much easier to photograph at night, too (in case you've ever wondered).



Snow on my deck. I hate snow on my deck.



More snow. If it doesn't melt today I'm gonna have to brush or shovel the snow off my deck.



A shot out my front door. I love our little pine tree. When we first moved in, it was all lookin' like the Char…

Today Was a Good Day

In the immortal words of Ice Cube (whom I used to think was Ice Q for some reason), "today was a good day."
I stayed up until well past midnight last night. The five hours previous were taken up by an IMG meeting. Which was cool. But I was tired after that (and pretty much after the previous week, period). So instead of typing out and sending the meeting minutes as soon as I got home, I crashed.
Got up at 8 to let J- in (she'd slept over at a friends). She promptly went to bed. I went back to bed for about an hour. Then got up to get ready to start the Awesome Day!
Got ready, threw some juice in the ride (I got front an' back and side to side) and headed over to the Haimeral (sic) Center for the RECORD SHOW!!!  
Now, it's been a good....oh....4 years since I've been to a record show I'd guess. Last time it was at Vets Memorial (and it pretty much blew). So I was jazzed to meet up with Ian and Darrin at the record show. Darrin had the mission of not spending a…

Social Networks??

It's no secret that I'm into blogging. Or online journaling (whatever you want to call it these days). At one point in time I had about 7 separate and distinct blogs for various things. Some I posted to daily, some monthly, some yearly (SideOne, TrackOne, anyone?). I think what I liked about blogging (and still somewhat dig) is the interaction. It was cool to post some piece of a thought or shite that was happening in my life and get feedback, comments, etc. from people across town and across the country. It was a way to feel connected. And it was a way to be lazy. If you wanted to find out what was going on in my life, all you had to do was check my LiveJournal page, or check my blog. It saved time from actually having to make an active effort to keep in touch with someone. If you didnt' read the blog, I could assume you didn't want to keep in touch, so screw ya. Now, admittedly, that's a skewed viewpoint as there were people that I might want to keep …

Damn

I normally never watch the news. And this is one example of why.

I saw a live report that the String Shoppe was closing its doors after 40 years.
I really can't imagine going down to campus and not seeing the String Shoppe.

It's just kind of shitty.

That's all I got.

This is why I voted for Obama

I found this waiting in my inbox this morning. Now I know that it's probably auto-generated and a form letter, but you know what? I was getting emails like this from him, from Biden, from Michelle Obama throughout the whole campaign, moreso these last few weeks.

And it made me feel like I was a part of the movement, like I made a difference.

And I think that was the difference this time. Each and every person that voted for Barack felt like their vote made a difference. I went to bed last night EXCITED to wake up this morning. I actually feel hopeful that politics as we know it is going to change.

Change. Hope.
Making a difference.

We are indeed entering an historic era.

I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first. We just made history. And I don't want you to forget how we did it. You made history every single day during this campaign --…

Civic Duties

I voted today (and so should you).

It's been a while since I've posted (but I've been updating my status on Facebook like a crack addict jonesing for the next fix).

I wanted to post this, though, because I thought it was kind of cool.





And from the State Resolutions:

The Transportation Cabinet is directed to honor and salute the military history of Skaggs brothers Carl, Escom, Hurl, Hunter, and Wilbur by naming Kentucky Route 172 in Morgan County, from the town of Crockett to the Johnson County line, the "Skaggs Brothers Highway." The Transportation Cabinet shall, within 30 days of the effective date of this Resolution, erect signs at the locations specified in this section that read "Skaggs Brothers Highway."

And then this one:

The Transportation Cabinet is directed to honor and salute the military history of Skaggs brothers Carl, Escom, Hurl, Hunter, and Wilbur by naming Kentucky Route 32 in Lawrence County the "Skaggs Brothers Highway." The Transp…
