Happy "stuff your face and watch football" Day

I'm off to the home-world. Unfortunately for me I won't be "unplugging" this time. I've got a ton of work to do while I'm there. (Which I'm sure to get yelled at for doing during a family visit.)

Travel safely and be sure to remember to breathe when inhaling food.

Rules of Existence

There certain things that make any given person shudder. Not necessarily gross or obscene, but things that just don't fit normality. It different for everybody. I'm a big movie fan and for me, one of those things is actually seeing the voiceover people.

You live all your life hearing movie trailer after movie trailer and those guys sound so cool and unreal that even though you know they are real, something in my mind blocks that out. It's like a Rule of Existence. Those voiceover guys only exist in movies. No one is supposed to actually see them.

So you can imagine my state of confusion when I saw this video clip that actually puts the industry's top 5 voiceover guys in 1 limo. Watch it once, then if you don't get it close your eyes and listen to them. I'll bet you can name movies that they've done trailers for.

Great Expectations

My first experience with a computer was an Apple IIe in elementary school when I used it to play a game called Word Munchers.

Since then, technology has advanced by leaps and bounds.

Today we can watch TV on our cell phones, create digital environments that fool the mind when watching movies and have virtually anything delivered anywhere without having to ever leave your chair.

With all of the wonderful things one can do with technology today, why in God's name, would you do THIS?

Ok, Billy Ray Cirus is not to be played EVER, let alone like this. Nice hat, tool. If you're going to go to that kind of effort, at least print out the lyrics eh? Although, he's got Whitney down pretty good. Or is that bad?

I almost cried threw-up when I saw one of my classic favorites, Sweet Child O' Mine. That did it. I couldn't watch anymore.

How many times do I have to say it?

Chemical Neutering is NOT a bad thing.
