i hacked my own account

almost 4 years ago, i forgot either my login or password or both to my flickr account.

for whatever reason, i figured it our tonite.

i dusted it off and uploaded a few pictures just to see if i could remember how.

i feel kinda stupid, but also vindicated.

modern marvels

i am officially in syndication, though i won't collect any royalties.
i was recently part of a modern marvels episode on packaging that aired in january 2011.
it has aired multiple times since.
it cracks me up.
the history channel is my favorite cable channel, its pretty awesome to be a part of it.
check it out if you get a chance

blue monkey

my niece gave me a monkey from her barrel of monkeys for valentines day.

this is his first appaerance in a blog (to my knowledge)


new book

.............not mine.

sammy hagar's.
worth a read unless you are an eddie van halen fan, he doesn't fare well.
turns out eddie is a little difficult to get along with when he's drunk,........which seems to be quite often.
still one of the greatest 6-stringers of all time.
anyway, just thought i would share.

Happy Birthday Dave Mustaine!

i just finished reading dave's book last week.

i read the whole thing in 4 days, couldn't put it down.

i'm proud of dave for turning his life around.

i've walked a similar path.

awesome book.

especially if you like megadeth.


coolest game i have ever played, ever.

if you fashion yourself a gamer, then you will probably just nod when you read this.

just cause 2 is the greatest video game ever of today.

that could change.

but it hasn't yet.

this game has everything




race cars





a huge roaming area.

it's similar to GTA4, but better because you can go anywhere and operate any of the machinery.

i've even flown a passenger jet.

if you haven't already, you need to check this game out.


it's football season

it must be, because the lions have already broke my heart.

i couldn't believe the call that nullified calvin johnson's TD. even my 11 year old daughter is still complaining about the call, and this is her first season actually watching football.

so it goes.

i a am lions fan, always have been, always will be.

that's why it sucks to watch them lose.

as the new season starts i find myself, once again, saying "maybe this is the year".

then they lost the first game.

i was encouraged by the defense, and mortified to see our starting quarterback get hurt, again.

maybe next week they will turn things around.

till then

in case you haven't noticed..

its been quite awhile since i have posted.

i fell in love with facebook.

having said that, facebook isn't really the place to discuss certain topics

like politics, religion, the economy, etc.

i have some opinion to share, so i'm crawling back to my online journal.

my new year's resolution is to be more consistent with my posts. (fingers crossed).


under the dome

just finished ready the epic stephen king novel 'under the dome'.

it was a challenge.

over 1,000 pages.

lots of developed characters.

interesting plot.

i was a little disappointed with the ending, it was a little thin.

overall, a good book. if you like stephen king, you'll like it.

tom waltz

who happens to be a very gifted writer and editor,

a comic he wrote with gene simmons of KISS.

i will be dedicating a portion of my holiday

to reading tom's latest.

i will keep you posted. in the meantime,

check him out.

happy holidays

just wanted to let everyone know that i'm
spending way too much time on facebook lately.
but that's where you can go to find me.
i have a couple of weeks off for christmas
(crazy isn't it?)
so i plan to play a little more on my blog and
do some writing.
till then.
