I was reminded of this story today, and wanted to write it down before I forget it. My dad was in the Air Force for over twenty years, from a little after I was born until a little before I got married. He was a navigator, planned exercises and did all kinds of stuff I… Continue reading Funny Not Funny
There’s a game going around Facebook where you remove a letter from a movie title to make a new movie and then you have to come up with the plot. I love these games. Here are my entries (so far). Feel free to add your own: Star Was: the story of a dying star and… Continue reading Silly Games With Movie Titles
We all hate spam. It’s stupid, misleading and a huge drain on our inboxes. But, what if it was short and mildly entertaining? What if spammers were required to write their misspelled grammatically horrific missives as single haikus? I think that would make things a lot better. I’ve even written some to get them used… Continue reading A Bold Proposal
Sometimes, especially Halloween, I can’t help but think I’ve somehow ruined my children. Every year since they’ve been old enough to pick their own costumes, they’ve gone as something so obscure and webby that we end up having to explain it at every house we go to.

I’m not sure why I held out for so long… Anyways, the boys have fallen in love with it too and are now ruining my recommendations by watching nothing but Mythbusters and Mystery Science Theater 3000 on it. Now, whenever I log in, the “Top… Continue reading My Kids Are Ruining It!
I didn’t watch it, but Syfy had a movie called Sharktopus on last week. I’m sitting here on the couch with Brian, and we’ve decided that this mutant animal thing needs to be encouraged. So, here are our recommendations for Syfy’s next round of mutant animal movies: Donkeymander Chihuchilla Tigersloth Turtlehorse Cobronkey Squidant Ladybug Man… Continue reading Inspired by Sharktopus
This morning, as a congratulations, Andrew (our awesome designer at work) sent me the following image: Because I have a headache and was in the mood to cause trouble, I opened Pixelmator and created the following abomination, which I sent back. Happy Thursday morning! (and if you don’t know what goatse is… please don’t go… Continue reading Thursday Morning Hijinks
I’ve registered too many domain names. I have almost fifty and most of them aren’t being used for anything. So now, instead of wasting more money registering domain names that I have big ideas but no time for, I’m sharing them with the internet! I’ve been posting them to twitter, but now that I’ve done… Continue reading Restraining Myself
Today is the third International Day of Awesomeness, a holiday I invented back in 2007. For the past three years, I’ve tried to perform a “feat of awesomeness” to commemorate the day. The first year, I dyed my hair blue, something I’d always wanted to do but never had the guts to actually do. Last… Continue reading My International Day of Awesomeness Manifesto
This is as close as Kevin ever got to Hawaii. Maybe someday we can rectify that.
