Let me come out and say it now. Yes, I have read all of the Twilight books, and even all of Ann Rice’s Vampire Chronicles which by the way I believe to be true retellings of actual events in the lives of modern day vampires. That said, some folks in Florence have apparently [...]
Apparently Miley felt so snubbed when Radiohead said they wouldn’t meet her at the Grammy’s that she’s decided to “ruin” them. Seriously. Miley Cyrus said she’s going to ruin RADIOHEAD. RADIOHEAD! Suuuuuuuuuuure she is. Good luck with that Hanna Miley.
apparently we are allowed to blog about whatever, so I’m going to blog about my new thing: running. since I got into shape about 4 years ago, I have wanted to do a marathon. it seems like an incredible challenge, both mentally and physically. so while I’ve toyed with the idea for awhile, I [...]
Remember the journalist who threw the shoe at George W. Bush? Shoe hurling I awoke this morning to find out that he just got sentenced to three-years in jail for his act of political expression via footwear (who knew he was even on trial?).

I am currently preparing for a trip to South Africa, Zambia and Botswana that I’ll be taking this summer. Today, I misited the travel nurse at a local hospital to get immunized and vaccinated and what not. It was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, as I really can’t stand [...]
For Zac and me, it began with Modest Mouse at the Marquee. For our friend Sean, it began with Jimmy Eat World’s Clarity show in which they played Clarity cover to cover and finished off the night with a 6-song encore. Back to Modest Mouse for a sec. This was my fourth show, and after three [...]
With the latest iteration of my dear friend’s slice-o-blogosphere being named “livedreality” I feel like I have a pretty big mandate for writing whatever it is that I want to write about. Therefore, I’m going to take a second to catch all of you up on the fantastic and intriguing world of English Premier League [...]
This Spring Break finds me relaxing inside because of all the ridiculous snow falling in the greater Seattle Tacoma area over the last few days. So, I’ve been watching some of the MLB network (I am a diehard Seattle Mariners fan, and fan of baseball in general). The World Baseball Classic has been on the [...]
President Barack Obama did something fantastic today. He ended the United States ban on science that left us eight years behind the rest of the world in research of using stem cells to treat various diseases and generally make life better for many many people. Check out the video: Sure the pro-life folks will be going [...]
