3 Months and Counting

I celebrated 3 months smoke free this past weekend by attending the Guardian Dojo Challange . There I took about 2000 photos and some video with the help of Rae and my brother. I have two friends from college who are members of the Guardian Dojo who performed very well in thier fights. I have the upmost respect for anyone who competes in these tournaments. In sadder news, Debby the Polar Bear was euthanized today. Debby was the oldest polar bear on record. Video of Debby can be seen on youtube here.

Mitch Mitchell 1947 - 2008

Rock and Roll lost another great drummer. Mitch Mitchell, one of the few drummers that could keep up with Jimi Hendrix, passed away last Wednesday of natural causes following an 18 date tour called Experience Hendrix. Mitch represented the last living member of the trio, "The Jimi Hendrix Experience", R.I.P.
Above is Mitch performing a drum solo in Sweden in 1969 and below one of my personal favorite drum tracks from Mitch, "Catfish Blues" as seen on youtube.

Mona Marley

I found another fun thing to do from creativepro's wackey website of the week. This week it was for a site called megamonalisa.com where you get to redesign the mona lisa. There are many good and some really bad ones. I had fun whipping this one out. See it posted with the frame on the website here.

All Thumbs

I have been working on computers in school and as my occupation for over 5 years now and I still have to look at the keyboard to type with any kind of speed. although I am up to using 6 fingers, one thing that I kind of regret is never learing the proper way to type. Now, with the help of the internet, I have decided to take action towards correcting this and hope to be typing without looking at the keyboard instead of pecking at the keyboard with my head down, then proof reading to look for typos in the begining of document/Email/blog entry. Here is a site that I have been playing with so far.
good luck to me.

Happy First Snow

Well it's been a while since my last post. I've been pretty busy between work, personal projects, and trying to win the Stanley Cup on my Xbox. Anyway I've kinda been waiting for this day to share this video to give us a little hope on a cold snowy day.

Warning: there is at least one swear in this video and violence against snowmen.

This song is from the greatest "C" movie ever, "Cannibal the Musical". I highly recomend it to any South Park and Matt Stone / Trey Parker Fan.
Have a shpadoinkle day!
