"I copy that" is walkie-talkie talk for - I understand, will do, gotcha, ok, alright, yup, uh-huh, and much more depending on the inflection of the voice.

the fever starts.

bike season is upon us.

There aren't many competitive sports that I follow. I don't know athlete's names or stats... except for team discovery. I love the tour de france. love. complex, beautiful, exciting. the DVR is now going to be set for the bike races.

check out race2replace. it is a free web show (and podcast on iTunes) about team discovery and its structure after lance.

July means two things to me- the Fourth and the Tour.

so excited.

The DMV is evil. We all know that. I am trying to figure out how to get a motorcycle license, it's a unbearable. Let me show you what the DMV says about drinking...

"Without taking into account any of the other factors, the formula below illustrates the LEAST amount of drinks remaining in the bloodstream:

A person drinking:

  • 7 drinks in 3 hours would have at least 4 drinks remaining in their system.
  • 4 drinks in 2 hours would have at least 4 drinks remaining in their system."
WHAT? what "formula" is that? 7-3=4... good, that makes sense, but 4-2=4? maybe they will have a graphic with the formula, that should help.


so, using that formula I can drink 10 drinks = 0 hours ago = and have 0 drinks in my body. I am good to drive.

Thanks DMV!

science fiction... I mean... fact.

I don't understand these three things I read today - science stuff that would make for great tv episodes... here we go...

1)"A musical mystery today surrounded Britain's highest mountain after a piano was discovered near its summit.

Volunteers clearing stones from the 4,418ft peak were astonished when they discovered the musical instrument on Ben Nevis. An appeal has now been launched to find out how and why the piano came to be within 200 metres of the top of the mountain."

Awesome. So weird.

2)"Boyd recently showed how he can slow down a pulse of light to slower than an airplane, or speed it up faster than its breakneck pace, using exotic techniques and materials. But he's now taken what was once just a mathematical oddity—negative speed—and shown it working in the real world."

I don't know what that means, or how it works, read the article and get back to me.

3) this "boyd" that they were talking about above...

he looks like this -

Amazing. He's not even joking with those glasses. The height of nerd fashion.

science fact.

I don't want to hug the tarbaby...

ok, the white house briefings - they either make me mad or... confused - but Tony Snow's first briefing, very entertaining. It starts with him walking in to no response, he said " I feel so loved." welcome, tony, welcome. Don't worry, I know you won't cry. You'll just get close. oh, and don't use the term "tarbaby" in a press conference.

then there is the "new" video of a white streak hitting the pentagon to quell the "conspiracy theorists". Watch, listen, and read as CNN tries to prove that it was a jumbo jet that hit the pentagon. I still see no wreckage.

I really hate being "that crazy guy". I'll try and not let these questions bother me for a while. I'll let it go. let it go. let it go. I'll just let Tony entertain and try and dance the McClellan dance.

I'm in Minnesota. I came to "surprise" my brother. He is having "trouble" at school. Hopefully we are fixing the problems. Though I have been busy, I found time to break one of my lenses while shooting my brother's pre-prom... through my anger it was still a very entertaining event.

see more photos (with smiling and the like) here.

Please help

I need help editing down my photos.


please go here and tell me which you like or don't - thank you

So Angry, So Happy.

Angry - well, it is a family problem, a black sheep - if you will... updates after I talk to said sheep.

Happy - TV execs are finally getting it. More TV shows are on iTunes, which is bad for my wallet and social life, but good for my entertainment.

24 - I still have to catch up, I started with season 2, they are on reruns on A&E. Only season 5 is on iTunes

Firefly - I missed a few episodes of this great show.

Buffy - I'm not going to buy any because I already went through my phase, I was lonely.

Lost - A given... addiction.

Battlestar Galactica - see above.

Alias - I have only seen season 1... iTunes only has 4 and 5... I have to wait.

Saved by the Bell - I haven't purchased any... yet.

Then there are the tv snacks like monk, the laws and orders, the office, and south park.

Time for laundry and lost. ooooh - go here lost fans. Hanso Foundation slick site.

What I believe

I don't like to make too many political statements on my blog. I may run for office some day and don't want statements I may have made at 25 to come and bite me in the butt.

I don't believe in conspiracy theories. There are too many people to keep a secret.

that said... I believe our president and his staff have lied to us.

I would like you to watch "loose change". You can watch it for free on Google Video. It is 1 hour 21 minutes long.

I do not believe a plane hit the pentagon on September 11th, 2001.

if you don't have time to watch the video right now, then check out this site to read about some of the evidence.

I don't like being lied to.

1. youtube took off my colbert videos - I am going to try to sneak them on this time.

2. Purple Rain and I had our first fall. (jonah "broke" her in). . . I was driving on the right in between the curb and cars and a cab door Right in front of me. I slam on the breaks, cuss, and slowly hit the door then the ground. I was going to be angry and the idiot who didn't look out of their door in the cab when I look up and see two scared kids. I tell them I'm alright and ask them if they are ok, they say yes. I look over myself to make sure nothing happened - nothing did, just a damp butt from the gutter. As I am getting up the kid says, "excuse me, can you get out of my way, we have to get out." I was aghast. I said, "what?" and he repeated the same phrase...

I got out of the brat's way. the mother then says, "It's not their fault... the door was open"... I don't even know what that means, I wasn't even mad - it happens... but "the door was open"... what? Just ask me if I'm alright and apoligize for your kids. I'm not going to sue you - just be a human.

Then she dragged her kids away from the scene as the hot dog vender and cabbie asked if I was alright.

News sites.

One of my two favorite news reports used my photo today. Rocketboom. I have a tiny crush on ms. amanda congdon and I have only been watching for about a week. The other show... or "the show" that I watch is ala ze frank. I have a tiny crush on mr. ze frank and I don't even like boys.

so, there you go, that should keep you busy for a few days.
