This is a post.

Nothing new happening the past two days.  Well, that may not be necessarily true.  I bought a AV Switchbox to try to get my computer and PS2 and N64 and CD/DVD combo unit and other amenities all run into spare TV I found lying in the attic.  I want to use it as a secondary monitor and figured I can wire everything together and make it all cool.  Of course, I’ll have to disconnect it all soon because I’m going to buy a new desk shortly.  But we’ll see.

And also I taught at small group last night.  ‘Twas cool.  I had no notes.  I just played a Nooma video and we all started talking for an hour.  I think it went well.  We spoke about being Jesus’ disciple.  We spoke about how to be a witness for God here and now today and how to love people.  We even got into some deeper theological discussion about whether or not “the unsaved” can go to heaven based on a Scripture, whose reference eludes me, which talks about how some who think they will make it won’t and those who don’t think they will make it actually will.  Good stuff.  I may or may not be scheduled to teach on November 29.  We shall see.  You should come check it out.

Today was boring.  I worked.  I came home.  That’s about it.  I’m going to clean a wee bit cause my room looks like Hiroshima after they dropped the bomb.  (No offense to any Hiroshimans).

I do feel some obligation to post something, though, for the 3 people who randomly read this.  So I’ma steal a survey, or meme as she calls it, from Angela.

::begin meme theft::
1. Total number of films I own on DVD and video.
Between 50 and 75.  There was a point where I was buying movies at a highly accelerated rate.  But then I realized I was poor.  So now it is infrequent.

2. Last film I bought.
Wow. That would probably be King Kong.  I told you.  Few and far between.

3. Last film I watched.
The Prestige.  Very good movie.  The ending was a bit disturbing, but I rather enjoyed it.

4. Five films that I watch a lot or that mean a lot to me (in no particular order).
Lord of the Rings
Star Wars
Rocky 1
Field of Dreams
Batman Begins

5. If you could be any character portrayed in a movie, who would it be?

Wilson from Cast Away cause he was freakin’ awesome!

And, so I guess I should shoutout to Angela since I did steal her meme/survey thing.

This is Angela.  She is the SciFiChick and is pretty much awesome.  Visit her blog and subscribe to the RSS.  She also is a really talented artist.  You should hire her.  Seriously.

I met her back in 2005 at the National Youth Worker’s Convention in Atlanta, GA. I have a picture somewhere, but not on this computer.

Well, this blog has gotten fairly long for me not having something to talk about.  Hopefully something interesting will happen to me tomorrow so I can talk about it.  See you then.

Pimp my ride’s endoskeleton

I was browsing the iTunes Store and was about to buy this episode of Pimp My Ride, just because I needed to see what they were going to do to this “truck.”

Happily, I found the episode on YouTube, so I didn’t have to pay, and I laughed quite heartily for the first 10 minutes of the show straight. Enjoy.

My mom made this chilli/nacho combination thing for dinner. ‘Twas good. So good I had a a second helping. And now I feel like I probably should have stopped at the first.


New beginnings

So here’s something new., huh?  Yeah, I decided that it was time to get my own “real” website.  So I registered my own domain.  Creative URL, isn’t it?  I thought so.

Anyway, I don’t know exactly what will become of this.  I orginally registered a MySpace account back somewhere near the end of 2005/beginning of 2006 in hopes of reconnecting with high school friends.  I knew about this phenomenon known as “blogging” but really wanted not much to do with it.  Then I started posting once in a while, and enjoyed it.  I like the MySpace blog.  But I realilze that using MySpace’s blog is about as effective as using the AOL-Browser instead of IE in the 1990’s (JavaScript, anyone?)  Great tool with useful features, but completely limited in its ability.

I learned a bit about RSS  and XML and broadcasting things in recent weeks.  I learned just some of the awesome technologies available to us, here in the year 2006, thanks to great podcasts such as MacBreak Weekly.  I decided it was time to take this to the next level.  So I registered this new blog here, to start off with.  What else will be added on to this page?  A forum?  A fully-functional website with all kinds of cool content – audio, video, etc?  I don’t know.  Time will tell.

For now, we have this nifty little blog available, which will be updated periodically.  Possibly daily.  Maybe bi-daily.  (Is that a word?)  Again, we shall see.  I’ll talk about the things I learn about God, as I am always questioning, probing, and searching for greater and deeper truth of him.  I shall post about the latest and greatest in technology as I learn it.  And, of course, as one would expect of me, look forward to plenty of random and pointless “crap” to appear on here as well… anything that catches my fancies or makes me laugh.  I’ll post of the odd circumstances that beset me or my experiences while at work or play.

One thing that I really am excited about is that this very blog is RSS-enabled.  What does that mean?  Well, look down in the very bottom-right corner of the page to the little button that says “Simply Headlines.”  Click on there and subscribe and you can receive an email every day on what is posted here or changes or other things.  It’s setup in a convenient newspaper format.  Really cool stuff.  There’s a Google button there as well, which will allow you to add this Blog feed onto your main Google search page.  I’ll add more items in the near-future.

One thing that will really make this fun is if people comment and ask questions and discuss.  I’m not fishing for attention a la so many millions on MySpace who define their character by how many pic comments they have, but rather I want to encourage open discussion and interaction.  Again, I will add more in the near future to promote this.

You can always check my older blogs via myspace at  I may try to transfer the others over here, but I haven’t reached that decision yet.

Until then, I take my leave.
