Big Changes Coming Soon

There is going to be be a big update and big changes coming soon to the Media Geek. Stay tuned.

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

There once was a blogger named Chuck, and it seemed like he just did'nt give a ....Whoa stop right there!

Okay, It's been almost a year since I posted a blog post and I blame Facebook. It has made me lazy in my blogging. Facebook and Twitter, they are evil but I will continue to use them so you should expect my next blog post in 2013.

The biggest news this year is the arrival of Mr. Harrison Michael. He joined us two weeks early on Sept. 2nd 2009. Here's my little buddy.

His big sister loves to put stickers on his head. And speaking of that big sister the lovely Ella turned 4 just over one month ago and had her first big girl birthday party.

<span class=Photobucket" border="0">

She even had real life little friends there this year. Not just Daddy, Mommy, Uncle Jon and Auntie Jane. It was quite the scene. Did I mention I was the only adult male there and was in charge of wrangling toddlers while the mommies chatted? I want a medal.

Of course it was just Halloween so we had to make our yearly trek out to Greenbluff so Elliott could go to the pumpkin patch for her birthday.

She loved it as always.

For this year Elliott wanted to be a Fairy Princess so Morgan made her a costume again.

Ella, insisted she was not a "Fairy Princess" but a "Butterfly Princess" after the costume was finished.

Harrison wore Ella's first Halloween costume and was our new little pumpkin.

That's my smiley boy.

Well that's it for now, I 'll talk to you guys again in two years.

Now for the Geeky Goodness my favorite web video from this summer. "The Ballad of G.I Joe" Yo Joe!


Sunday, January 18, 2009


I hope everybody had a great holiday season. I certainly know that Elliott did.

Well I've been kind of lazy in the blogging department lately so I've decided to throw up a few videos to show you guys what we've been up to lately.

And for this post's geeky goodness, I leave you with the classic trailer for the cinematic masterpiece, "Night of the Lepus". Giant killer bunny rabbits, awesome! I actually watched this movie like 25 years ago on USA's Nightflight or some other cable show like that. Please to enjoy.


Sunday, December 21, 2008


Well it wasn't just us this time, Portland, Seattle and a lot of places in the Pac NW got hit too. You may remember at the start of 2008 Spokane got hit pretty hard and we dubbed it "Snow-pokalypse" around the newsroom. What's funny is we actually started referring to that event by that name on air when this latest storm hit. We even started asking viewers what we should call this new storm, one person suggested "SnObama".

The snow really started coming down Wednesday and didn't stop until Thursday night. Here's a picture of my grill in the backyard Friday morning.

I was able to get to work on Wednesday no problem, but got stuck coming home at midnight about 50 feet from the driveway. A co-worker and two neighbors who were outside helped me get the car unstuck. I had chains on but I still got stuck. The car stayed in the garage until Saturday. Here's what the road looked like before they plowed.

I got a ride in on Thursday morning and was told to take a news 4x4 rig home Thursday night. So driving in on Friday morning was no problem. It snowed again today, it's snowing now actually and is supposed to snow all week. I'm working dayside this week so getting to work will be interesting. Here's what the back yard looked like tonight.

I was helping out by shooting last week so I was running around shooting car slide offs, stuck semi's and setting up live shots.

Elliott loved it it was her own winter wonderland. She had a blast playing in the snow and making snow angels.

Now for media geek stuff. The trailer for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" came out this week, and it looks like it's going to kick butt. I think it's actually going to be better than any of the X-Men movies. Please to enjoy. Click here to see the trailer.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

We bought or Christmas tree today. It's the first one that we've had since before Elliott was born. Elliott watched as Morgan hung the lights.

Elliott really liked hanging the ornaments on the tree. She did a pretty good job too.

Well here's the final product. I think it turned out pretty good.

We all had a lot of fun and it was neat to christen our new home for the holidays by putting up our decorations. I love my girls.

Before I go I'll leave you with some more media geeky goodness again from those fellers over at This one actually has a message. Jack Black and a bunch of other famous people got together to speak out, in musical form, about the passing of Proposition 8 in California. Unfortunately it was conceived about 6 weeks too late. Please to enjoy.

History, Dragons & Turning 3

Well that's pretty cool huh?

Yep It's about time we got some historical moments that didn't just suck. It seems like the majority of them in my lifetime, with the exception of the Berlin wall coming down, have been terrible moments in history. For example Watergate, the death of Elvis, the eruption of Mount St. Helen's, the death of John Lennon, Chernobyl, Iran/Contra, Libya, Desert Storm (twice), 9-11 and HAVING THE WORST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS!

Listening to President Elect Obama speak in Chicago last night gave me hope for this country and for my daughter's future. Now I just hope he can fix relations with Russia which Bush just launched into the crapper.

I should have been at the station last night working on election coverage but I missed out. I've been sick since Sunday and the Doc said I was contagious so I was forbidden to come into work. My boss didn't want me infecting the whole news room and getting everybody sick while we are in sweeps. So I stayed home and watched election coverage with Morgan and Elliott.

I know I said in my last post that it wasn't going to be long until I put up a new post, I lied. Sorry but I've been obsessed with taking inventory of my comic books with this new software that I got called Comic Collectors 4.2

I have 3,332 comics. I'm a huge geek.

Elliott wanted to be a dragon for Halloween so Morgan made her this costume

It turned out really good huh?

Elliott really liked it and got tons of complements when she was out trick or treating. This was the first year that we took her and she couldn't wait. She was talking about it for weeks before Halloween rolled around.

Elliott's 3rd Birthday was on the 12th and we took her to the pumpkin patch because she loved it so much last year. She actually got on a pony and went for a ride, no way she would have done that last year. Heck she wouldn't even get on the carousel horse this summer.

After the pony ride Ella went over to the pumpkin patch and picked out her pumpkins. she had just as much fun as last year.

After the pumpkin patch we came back home and Jon and Jane came over for cake and to open presents, just like they have for all of her birthdays.

This was the first year that Elliott got a full sized cake, she just got cupcakes for her first two birthdays. This was also the first birthday that she sat in a regular sized chair at the table and not her high chair.

Morgan's sister Katy got Elliott these Oregon State Beavers pajamas. She loved them, as soon as Jon and Jane left, (Jon's a Ducks fan) she stripped off her clothes and put then on. She thought the beaver was a raccoon at first.

As I recently posted, we just bought a house about two months ago, and we're slowly but surely getting settled in so I decided to post some more pictures.

Here's our living room. I really like the big picture window and the hardwood floors, Elliott likes me to slide her around on the floor when she doesn't have her shoes on.

Here's Elliott's room, she loves it. It was already painted pink when we moved in.

She's got quite the Cat in the Hat/Dr. Seuss theme going on.

I love that we have both a deck and a patio. Also the back yard is pretty big.

I'll post some more later.

I'll leave you all with some Geeky Goodness. Do you ever wish those pesky 80's music videos would have just sung about all the crazy stuff that was actually going on in the video itself? No? Well neither have I, but somebody did and they re-dubbed a literal translation over the Tears for Fears video "Head over heals". Please to enjoy.
