This past weekend I worked Movin’ On 2008 at Penn State University. On Friday morning a small crew loaded two trucks full of audio and lighting gear just south of Baltimore and took off towards State College. We arrived without issue and got to work unloading the gear and loading in for the all day [...]

I saw 21 last week at Tysons Corner AMC. If you’ve never been there, this theater is nuts. If you’ve got vouchers to AMC, save ‘em for here. Student rate for a matinée was $8.50. I think regular adult admission was $12.50. The decor reminds me of a casino; there is oak trim and marble [...]
I keep notes about the places I go when I’m on travel, about experiences with vendors good and bad. While a particularly bad place might stand out in my mind, I may forget when a place is just sub-par. If you don’t travel, the following probably won’t be of much interest.
When it comes to profit, [...]

I was not impressed with the carry out from P.F. Chang’s China Bistro.
An order of Peking Dumplings ($5.50) consists of four steamed (or pan-fried) dumplings filled with ground pork and vegatables. The dumpling wrappers themselves are thinner than most neighborhood take out, reminding me of the dumplings you can get in bulk from the market. [...]
I must have been really out of it this morning because I chose the first available space when parking in a federal lot. Despite being in unfamiliar territory, it didn’t even occur to me to look along the fence for any restriction signs. I recall seeing a lot of similar looking vehicles in the row, [...]
I worked a quattrocelli concert the other night. It’s a four-piece cello quartet based out of Germany. Cellists — and most other artists who play while seated — are picky about their seating, particularly the height of the seats. Not having numerous adjustable piano benches, we managed to strap several stacked chairs together with gaff [...]
I was meddling with FeedBurner settings early today — researching something for a customer — and wasn’t able to tell how the FeedBurner Ad Network and/or Google AdSense for Content actually appears in the feed body. Based on their advertising specs I know they’re in the feeds, but it wasn’t horribly clear from the documentation [...]
When I woke up this morning I felt rested and ready to get up, then I looked at my alarm clock.
Despite feeling just fine — my brain alert — I decided that it was entirely too early to start the day, having been asleep for a few hours. I rolled over and got a sip [...]
I don’t remember The Bank Job getting a lot of hype but I think it might be the sleeper movie of the year. In short, I was more than pleasantly surprised. It’s good. Really good.
The first thing to know is this: don’t go see this movie because of Jason Statham. Not that he isn’t good, [...]
The weight of everything is being lifted, one bit at a time. Lots of little things that I’ve been working on have finally come to fruition. My tax returns are completed and mailed. I contracted to have a new and improved splash image created for my placeholder site and am pleased with the results. Over [...]
