Uh Oh, I might be a foodie

I’m not proud of this. While cleaning up old pictures on my phone, I found an unusually high concentration of food photos. First step is acknowledging the problem.

Bumped Into Someone

Out for a run this evening, and bumped into someone (or maybe it should be something?). As I approached four deer wandered into the woods. Three wandered deeper into the woods, while this one curiously watched as the human 1) Caught his breath and stopped, 2) Fumbled the cell phone which was pulling double duty [...]

TV Is Broken

This had to be shared. Patrick Rhone over at Minimal Mac tells a story of his young daughter and her interaction with the current state of TV.

    Don’t look at me like I am a monster
    Frown out your one face, but with the other (you)
    Stare like a junkie into the TV
    Stare like a zombie while the mother holds her child,
    Watches him die,
    Hands to the sky cryin “why, oh why?”

    Cause I need to watch things die from a distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all need it too – don’t lie.

    Why can’t we just admit it?
    Why can’t we just admit it?
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’
    Neither the brave nor bold
    Nor brightest of stories told
    We won’t give pause until the blood is flowin’

    I need to watch things die from a good safe distance
    Vicariously, I live while the whole world dies
    You all feel the same so why can’t we just admit it?
