Good Morning!


Whats up?

thought I was killing my blog like that guy from Wired blogged that I should do?


Im just not updating very often, you see. Its much better that way. Then you always *think* its dead without actually having to go to a funeral. Besides, we have the rest of KKs list to get through. Ill at least wait for that – I have to have something to listen to, right?

Weekend. Eagles won. Michigan lost. No trips, not too much money spent (go me!). Football this afternoon too. Zach and Miri was fine. Uninspired, and probably better had it been a drama (I didnt think of that, but the guy who did was right), but nice to see a Kevin Smith movie that doesnt involve the Jersey Trilogy.

Time to take my over-punctuating ass to work now. Gotta make the money – credits no good.

Workin for a Livin’


This week has just flown right by with nothing really of note to mention, it seems.

Ive been good about getting work done – after a couple of conversations with Shady K about re-dedicating ourselves to what we do, I haven’t really gone as far as I could, but I did manage to get real amounts of computer work done. I also started a new thing yesterday working for Neil Diamond, but thats weirdly temporary.

Ive done some organizing and catching up, and am pretty ready for the weekend, actually. Id like to get some editing done and maybe a script outline typed up, too. Well see how the weekend goes. Since UMBC lost at Basketball today (boo!), there arent any teams I could care about in the NCAA thing, so maybe Ill be working more this weekend than Id initially thought.

Anyway, I bet youre all just as ready for the weekend as I am, so Ill quit. Happy Good Friday everyone.

hosting fail!



I had another post here about how the site was all-new, but then my hosts had a RAID failure on the MySQL server that held all of my DB info and they lost about 48 hours of Clapboard content.

NR Modelling


Cool 1-minute video of a hot girl in a bikini after the break. Clapboard needs more of this, and no mistake.

Thanks to NR for shooting with me again and to Pris for finding the music.  I want to do more of these, not only on the beach (although I do want that), but in the studio, on a mountain, wherever.

Nothing much has happened in the last 3 weeks, or else nothing that I want to write about.

Final Fire


Bonfires in Glen Mills weren’t special occasions by design, they were mostly just times that Dad said “hey, we’ve got a lot of crap to burn” and I said “I want to burn it – don’t start the fire so early!” and he let me.

This update is a mess


Beach day today rather than hunting down more work was probably a mistake, but since there are friends in town, it was pretty much unavoidable.

back with a simple update


I’m doing it again – that thing where I let too much time go by and then I don’t want to post a stupid update because I feel like I owe an explanation…

So I’ve been on the teleprompter beat all week and it’s been tiring.

Well, the 7am calls have been tiring because I’ve been chasing girls or staying up late inexplicably, but I blame the work.

Breakfast Blues

Food & Wine

I am not as good at eggs as I should be.eggs I cook them very rarely, and almost never over-medium, the way I like them in the diner.  I think I’m using a pan that’s too small for two eggs, actually, and I think I’m impatient.  If I had a bigger spatula I could probably flip both eggs at once in the small pan, but alas, I do not.
(Time to go to Spatula City!)

I make really good scrambles, of course, but that’s about the ingredients and finding tasty things that taste great together. And an omlette is just a scramble with pretentious aspirations, make no mistake.

At least I’m trying to start the day off right with tea and eggs.

Wine Batch #2

Food & Wine

I bottled my second batch of wine!

It’s another kit wine, this time from “Cru Select.”  It’s a Chilean blend of Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and I call it Chilean Mystery Blend because I don’t know the percentages of each, nor really anything about the grapes’ origins.  On the provided labels, the description says this: “Opening with dark roasted notes of coffee and chocolate with a hint of blackberries, fermentation on Cabernet Merlot Genuwine Winery Dried Grape Skins and French oak completes this monumental taste experience.”

I have more pictures and notes and such after the break, but the takeaway here is that in 10 days or so, I’ll have a new wine in rotation at the Casa Fredonia.

this old chestnut


I lack the skill as a writer and as a navigator of emotional waters to write a real postmortem on six or so years of my life, but it’d be dishonest and unfair not to mark the fact that our relationship has come to an end.

I just wrote a whole vaguely-interesting update that I erased by thumb-spazzing and hitting the back button on my mouse by mistake as i grabbed for it like a retarded monkey.

Big Bear Survuvalism!


It snowed at least 18″ on Saturday and Sunday up in Big Bear Lake, meaning that the skiing got both better and worse.

Insomnia, colds and ski prep


I skipped Pi Day because I had another “wake at 330am for no fucking reason” day yesterday, and was so tired all day that I couldn’t focus on anything other than the crap I had to do.
