Catholicism forbids pre-marital sex — despite the fact that many practicing Catholics engage in the practice anyways — much to the chagrin of other sects of Christians. That may be cheap shot at Catholics, but it is apparent that our generation is vastly different than previous ones. We aren’t saving ourselves for marriage. We don’t […]

Kermit Covers Nine Inch Nails

So utterly inappropriate, it’s genius. There’s a few other MP3s available at sadkermit.com for your enjoyment. A lovely cover of Radiohead’s Creep, not to mention guest vocalist Fozzie on Nine Inch Nails’ Something I Can Never Have and Elliot Smith’s Twilight. In addition, a nice version of The Rainbow Connection. Truly well done.

Local Severna Park schools were put on lockdown for an hour yesterday while County police tracked down the suspect of a morning bank robbery. After a foot chase the bank robber decided to get into it with the County police, popping off a few rounds. Smart. A half dozen cops in pursuit, he continued shooting […]

I was reading someone’s blog today. I’m told to keep that someone on the DL, so I won’t even say whose. You know it doesn’t matter. It is completely irrelevant whose blog it was. I saw a trackback link on the blog. It triggered me. I couldn’t recall receiving any pings under WordPress, despite having […]

Why I Still Do Crew

I spend a good amount of time with the Severna Park High School Stage Crew. I’m frequently asked by coworkers and my college buddies why I would waste my time doing high school shows. Simple. I don’t think it’s a waste. A bit longer explanation would be that we don’t do high school shows. Sure, […]

I’ve been making a conscious effort to cut back on the profanity at work, on my blog, at crew. Impressionable minds don’t need to listen to my foul mouth and it doesn’t add a whole lot to the conversation. I also think it’s about time I came up with some new adjectives and adverbs to […]

More Service Provider Nonsense

It’s done. At 6:45 last night I called Comcast to discontinue my cable service. After navigating several layers of voice prompts, I finally got connected to Melissa. I cited continual price increases and technical problems as my reasoning for discontinuing service. She inquired if I’d considered switching to a less expensive plan and also mentioned […]

Let’s Clear the Air

The slogan of Maryland’s Vehicle Emissions Inspection Program (VEIP) is “Let’s Clear the Air!” I’m a tad confused about that. I’m clearly not an environmentally minded person, despite having a minored in environmental sciences. According to my studies, the machine age began back in the 1400′s, beginning a downward spiral of pollution and self-destruction that […]

Spiritual Enlightenment at Lexus

I was at Lexus getting my car worked on last week and was reading the March 2007 issue of Spirtuality & Health magazine that a hip and happening new age owner had left behind. The magazine — printed entirely on recycled paper — is quite a load of crap, offering little in the way of […]

Stupid Parking Brake

When I came back from running some errands today, I realized that I had driven home with the parking brake set. I must have spaced out or something. At least it’s an automatic. I don’t really need that parking brake, so long as I don’t park on any hills without curbs. Damn. Then I was […]

So Close to a Break

After several months of non-stop work, this year’s Rock N’ Roll Revival is coming to a close. I’m actually looking forward to having a few days off, versus running 16 hour days every day. But tomorrow isn’t the beginning. I’m renewing my license in the morning. My FiOS install is tomorrow between 1 and 5. […]

Podcast Mentions, Hilarity Ensues

There are some areas where I fall seriously behind the times. I had never listened to a podcast before this evening. The one that I happened to listen to — despite behind a Halo-related podcast — happened to mention the recent server move. What were the odds of that? I think that I’m still wiped […]

An Idea Comes Alive at RNR XVIII

Here we are; Rock N’ Roll Revival XVIII. After several months of effort coming to fruition, last night’s opening was outstanding. We kicked RNR XVIII off this year in a way unique to the show. The videos are major spoilers. If you have tickets this year, I recommend you skip the following links entirely and […]

Acura TL, My Next Vehicle?

I’ve been saying that I’m going to drive my SL2 into the ground, but recently I’ve been noodling with the idea of buying a new car. I’ve currently got my sights set on the TL. It’s a mid-size luxury sedan from Acura. A bit bigger than what I’m used to but with far nicer appointments. […]

Comcast has been irritating me lately with their lack of support and continuous price increases. After numerous complaints and their failure to fix problems I’ve decided to take my business elsewhere. I don’t watch a lot of television and have been watching fewer movies on HBO and Showtime, so I decided to dump the television […]
