I know I've explained this before, BUT

I feel I need to once again point out that my diminished "output" here is not a reflection on my dedication to this "thing" that I've been doing here for (GULP!) five years. Rather, it is a reflection of all the work I have been doing here-

When I agreed to help found the site last February I had no idea (in the best possible way!) what I was getting myself into! It has been, to say the least, a really rewarding endeavor and I hope that the people (person?) who still stop by here from time to time understand that this blog is still something I value and still something that I plan to continue.

How's that for unnecessary self-importance!?

One Good Reason To Rent "Crime Story"

...because you get to hear Del Shannon's "Runaway" at the beginning of every episode.

Plus, in the pilot "movie" alone there were also songs by Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry (as covered by George Thorogood), as well as a few other gems.

Although I've played indoor and outdoor pick-up soccer pretty much year round since my high school days, this winter I'm playing in a competitive league for the first time in about a decade.*

My weekly match is on Monday nights. By Sunday night (which is now!) I can't sit still, the anticipation is more than I can take!


*prior to this decade I'd played in indoor and outdoor leagues for about a decade.

This woud have been relevant over a decade ago...

...but since I just listened to it, Sugar's Explode and Make Up is a song that grows and grows on you until, finally, you say to yourself, "That's a REALLY good song!"

That's it.

Return to your normal daily activities.

Veteran's Day

Thanks, Poppy.

It strikes me as wrong...

...that I should have to clean a vacuum cleaner in order to keep it in working order.

I don't know if that falls under "ironic" or "counter-intuitive" or what, I just know it's annoying.

This made me feel good about myself

I just looked at Rotten Tomatoes "100 Worst Movies of the Last 10 Years" and I've only seen three of them, and only paid to see one of them- and I'm pretty sure that I confused it with another movie when I was buying the ticket.

I am not, however, going to name any of the movies- nice try!
