Back Again

A wise man once said "Life Moves Pretty Fast, If You Don't Stop And Take A Look Around Once And A While You Could Miss It." Then he went to Ireland and got into a car accident with Jennifer Grey and killed a mother and her little daughter, while he may have been intoxicated.

Anyway my point is life has been moving pretty fast so it's been 2 weeks since a post, and this is going to be a short one.

I made a dude cry at work this week, which pretty much sucked. But it also reminds me of what another wise man once said, There's No Crying In Television", or was that baseball? Either way it should apply to both.

One more thing Anime Popeye could very well be one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
Who's out?

CS is. (But not in a gay way) (not that there's anything wrong with that) (cuz there isn't) (It's just that I'm not)

John Ritter

It's been a year since one of my favorite actors of all time has passed, John Ritter. I was pretty sad for like two weeks. He made me laugh a lot in my life since I was about 3 years old. I will miss him.

Out again.

September 11th, 2004

3 Years have passed since the attacks on New York. I’ll never forget that day. I had only been back at the station for a little under a month when it happened. I left initially 2 years prior because I wasn’t able to handle the stories of death after grandma and grandpa passed away. When the phone woke me up and I turned on the TV just after the second tower fell I wasn’t even sure that I was going to make it through the day, but I was in the car and heading to work because I knew the day would be probably one of the most hectic of all of our lives. There was a lot of slipping into dark corners and weeping that day at work for everybody, myself included, but we all held it together and everyone I work with was able to get through the day with sensitivity and grace. Except for one of the sales guys that just kept talking out of his @$$ about what we should do and what he would have done to have kept it from happening, but he’s always been a real @$$ for as long as I can remember.

Did anyone happen to see our esteemed vice president on TV this week? He basically said that if we don’t vote for George Bush and John Kerry gets elected, America will be attacked again and it will be 9/11 all over again. That crap should be illegal. But there you have the same fear generating tactics that they’ve been doing since we got attacked in the first place. It’s like Cheney is hoping that we’ll all forget (sad to say most have) that the attacks on 9/11 happened under this administrations watch, a day after this administration voted to not increase the budget for homeland security. I know that a vote the day before it happened wouldn’t have stopped it, but the point is, that decision just goes to show what their mindset on homeland security was at the time, and don’t even get me started on the report given to the president that warned against attacks within the U.S. forthcoming.

Well I’ll get off my soapbox now. It’s just that I hate to see them try to use the deaths of all of those people to try and steal this election.

Morgan got me this really cool John Kerry Shirt at John Kerry’s Site.
I can’t wear it at work, so I always wear it on the weekends. A guy at the gas station said it looks like an old beer logo, I guess it kinda looks a little like the old Miller label.

I’m out,

My Brain is Fried

I stayed up way too late last night I watched the season premier of That 70's Show and then for some reason I started watching Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, probably the best animated Batman movie put out. And I say that only having watched about 20 minutes of this hour and 20 minute movie. I got so nostalgic watching it that I busted out the VHS (man I need to get the DVD) of Batman the movie with Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton. That movie really holds up, It's about 1000 times better that Batman and Robin, Joel Schumaucher just ran that Franchise into the ground. I have high Hopes for the new movie Batman Begins, which is filming right now. Also can't wait for the premier of The Batman this week on the WB. The new movie has got a whole new style and feel to it, also it's starting from square one It's going back to the roots, darker, edgier, and grittier. And plus most of it is being shot on location and not in the studio, so it will have a real world feel. Anyway I stayed up way too late and had to get up at 3:15 am as always and now I'm dragging. I still have the midday to direct, and then I have to be there at 4:00pm to floor direct the 5:00pm newscast. Fortunately there is only a 5 today so I can get out of here before 7pm.

Audio Learning Center has a new mp3 up to listen to. And scroll on down the page to see a funny manipped photo of the Pres. and Crew as Bat-villians.

I'm out,

Labor day 2

Here's a nice shot of Emigrant Lake from yesterday. The weather was great and the BBQ chicken was great.

Labor Day

It's labor day and I'm at work laboring away. Fortunately I only have to work until noon and then I'm off to the OSF barbecue at Immigrant Lake.

A couple of weeks ago we had a barbecue at work and for some reason the balloon guy from Red Robin came to it. He was making really cool balloon animals so I said make me hat, and this is what I got.

A couple of quick things:

Little Lost Robot got to meet Peter Frampton at the Oregon State Fair.

I have to see this movie.

I'm out,
