On Target

So, you may remember, I couple of days ago, I posted this-a list of my summer plans.

I'm happy to say the list now looks like this:



  • Revive the Blog.
  • Revive the Flickr Pro account and organize the portfolio over there.
  • Redo the TwistedZen.Com site
  • Set up a SmugMug Pro site for gallery/ordering
  • Remove photos from Facebook
  • Back up Facebook posts (hey...never know...there were some good nuggets on that wall from time to time)
  • Abandon (hope all ye who enter) Facebook
  • Write more
  • Shoot more
  • Rest secure in the knowledge that my true friends won't give a shit if I'm on Facebook or not.
Not gonna lie to you, it feels pretty damn good to be crossing that shit off. It's something I struggle with, finishing things I start. I'm trying to get better about it. I have books filled in various locations with lists of all sorts of designs and grand schemes...so to be able to cross things off my lists is a nice change of pace.


The weight loss is still going well (I haven't really fired up the #nomorefattodd blog yet, so I'll just throw an update here). I'm down 54lbs and healthier than I've been in easily 20 years. I know it has a lot to do with my eating, exercise and the Advocare products I'm using. It's been a nice triple threat to kill the fat and lazy Todd that was lurking around for way too long.

Alright, I should focus on getting to work (since that's what they pay me for).

More on this at the lunchtime break (perhaps).

Have a fantastic Thursday, all!!

Out of Sorts

Not sure what my deal is today. I got up this morning to go for a walk and it was spitting rain, but no biggie. My thriftstore Nikes were kind of hurting my feet, so that didn't help. But it felt good to go for the walk (other than the hurting feet). And it's all going well...and then I get into work and just turn into PMS-Man.  I don't know what my deal is. I just feel bitchy this morning and I'm not sure why. So..um. Yeah. That's all I got.

Marriage Material??

I had a friend call me today, fuming. I consider myself a good listener on most days. Considering that I was out of town on a work trip and doing absolutely nothing in my hotel room, my listening game was on-point.

She recounted the exchange that sent her off. I will spare you some of the more personal details, but the gist was, at one point, the dude-bro she was talking to flat out told her that she wasn’t marriage material.

Torn between wanting to be a supportive friend and being completely gobsmacked, I felt her frustration. No. That’s not quite right. I didn’t feel the same frustration she felt. I’m approaching what some consider middle age. I’m white. I’m primarily interested in women. Oh, and I have a penis. So...no, I can never truly feel the same frustration she was feeling. Or an anger that comes from the same place her anger came from. No matter how in touch I am witn my feminine side (whatever the fuck that actually means).

Instead, the frustration and anger I was feeling w…

A Tribute to Limozeen

So...you may recall that I recently got my very first P.O.S. Electric Guitar back. And you may also recall the folly with the "amp" from Freecycle.

And now, dear readers, I will let you in on the dramatic conclusion to those harrowing tales.

From Bob at work I recently got a Vox Pathfinder 15amp which looks a little (exactly) like this:
I have to say, the amp freakin' rocks. It's got built in tremelo, and this killer overdrive feature which makes the thing sound crunchy as all get out.

So tonight, I decided to try it all out. The amp, the POS Guitar, the FAB distortion pedal (purchased the day of the Sam Ash incident), the Alesis drum machine and the Alesis io2.

The results are just...well, funny.

I give you the theme song to the soon to be hit WB-Series, "My 'Tard Husband." I call it "shortbus." Take a listen here. It's about 3MB in size and 4:14 of unbearable cheese (and the guitars get markedly louder at about the minute mark-you've been …
