Eye Bugers

So, apparently when my eye itches along the same time as my arse, the correct order of operations is rub the eye before scratching said arse.

I don't know if I have conjunctivitis again or not...but my eye itches and is somewhat irritated. I went in last week before the holidays and got the Rx drops, but haven't used them yet as the doc said not to use them unless my eyelashes start sticking together or there's a discharge from the eyeball. Fairly easy things to look out for, I'd say. In any event, I have the drops.

My wife gave me the dopest Christmas present EVER and I'm going to post the 2 pix here for my 4 friends who read my blog (who are not on Facebook where the instant gratification of Blogger is quadrillified).


That's right. Your eyes are not deceiving you. It IS in fact the Marc Ecko StarWars Stormtrooper hoodie with the hood that zips all the way up and makes the mask.

I've said it before, but let me reiterate...I have the best wife ever!!!

And I real…

media player

OK. So I'm looking for a great media player/organizer (I have WAY too many MP3's).

I don't have an iPod anymore so part of me is like 'dude....why use iTunes?'

But...dude. Apple did it right. I've gone through several other players and for organizing...it's still my fave.

VLCPlayer is really good for one-offs and quick launching.

Winamp just annoyed me.

I keep coming back to iTunes. There would be no question of using it or not if it supported other Devices (for example, my SansaView). I guess I'll just sell the Sansa and get a little Nano or something (since I've been listening to MP3's at work on the Netbook and haven't touched the View in like 2 weeks or so)....Then iTunes would be perfect again.

Not really much of a post, I know. But I've been on vacation. I'm rusty.

New Year, New Blog

Some things will be changing in the coming weeks. This blog will be largely abandoned...replaced by a new thang I'm working on. The new thing will be more of a private affair. More details to follow. Leave your email addy for me in the comments and I'll update y'all.

Peace Out.

Purposeburg Commercial

Purposeburg is the children's ministry at International Christian Center. Their goal is to minister and teach the children, not just babysit them during the service.

In February, they are launching a new program. ICC came to International Media Group for us to build a campaign around the tagline they wanted to use 'Experience the WOW'

This is the first in a series of 8 commercials where the concept is that each person in the commercial is 'packing something in the box' to send to the next generation. They are going to encompass different generations, cultures, genders...in a way a mini-testimonial, but something that influenced their lives that they are passing on to the next generation (that's why it's getting boxed up and shipped to Purposeburg).

The first one is from the viewpoint of a doctor. Upcoming commercials will have a teacher, lawyer artist, musician, athlete, filmmaker, stay-at-home mom. Each one will air weekly with a specially packaged DVD at the…

Tis the Season (take 2.9)

I just haven't had that much to say lately (a recurring opening, I suppose). I am still getting the hang of using the new netbook. Oh. I guess that's news, huh? I got this-Samsung NC10. The reasons are myriad, but the main rationalization is that my previous laptop (an Averatec 6210x60 which I had bumped up to 2GB of RAM from when I was still using it to edit video) was just getting under-utilized. The majority of my laptop work as of late has been to type, keep notes at the various meetings I'm going to (with greater frequency, it seems), and surfing the web to chat, check email, etc. Meanwhile Nancy was trying to remote in to her office and work on Sharepoint sites and other work on a POS Dell P3 900MHz. It seemed a little cheezy to me. So, I did my research...headed to MicroCenter, played around with a few of them. Settled on the MSI Wind and then wound up not getting it because of a glitch in the matrix. But that worked out for the best. I went back and started rea…

For Darrin

Here it is.
You can pink this monstrosity up at your local Marc's in either pink or lavendar.

enjoy.

Big Steaming Piles of Poo

This has been quite an interesting weekend. I don't remember much about Friday night. I think there was a trip to Bob Evans for dinner. Some minor shopping but beyond that not much going on. Other than the CAHRAZY pink trees at Marc's (I might post a picture later).

Saturday the snow came. And no, it wasn't a blizzard (but you wouldn't have known by the way people were driving around on the freeway).

Nancy was under the weather, so our plans for holiday shopping while the kids were with their other parents got tabled. We did need groceries, though. So Nancy made the list, I grabbed the list, my keys, and the last shred of my will to live and ventured out in to the idiocy that is ohio traffic during a snowfall.

It was my plan to head over to MicroCenter first (for the goodies) and then to Aldi (for the groceries).

Which leads me to the first of the big steaming piles. I went to MicroCenter to use the 'holiday check' that CrapitalOne had sent me (basically a way to s…

What the???

OK. This makes me chuckle:
