I really like the whole concept behind Advent calendars. For starters, Advent. Like it. For second, candy. I’m in. Last year, we made two. Using barely any skill or money. The first for getting. The second for giving. This year, I think we’ll bring back the “giving back” one, but I did something different on [...]
Photo from IndieBall Rogue Wave is a swell California band. Thier song Harmonium was released a while ago, I think 2007, but it’s currently featured on an MLS Soccer commercial that plays very often in our home. I love this song.
On Sunday, I went to see The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part One with Jenny and Maile. Yes. We did. Along with 84 kabillion other people, we made the people involved about $140 million this weekend. Which is especially crazy because this movie was terrible. Terrible. And I’m not picky about movies.

For instance, Camp Mighty…which wrapped a week ago, started for me about 14 months earlier. Fall 2010: I don’t completely remember the origin of it, but it sounded something like [...]
I can’t believe I haven’t posted about them until now. Because they’ve been playing non-stop in our house for a while now. Especially since their new album Golden came out about a month ago. The Tontons (Asli Omar, Tom Nguyen, Adam Martinez, Justin Marinez) are a severely talented group of people, and I can’t wait to see [...]
A couple of weeks ago Sarah Bryden Brown asked me why I blog. Here’s what I told her. It’s on Kirtsy too. Blogging has for sure taken me down a rabbit trail of awesomeness. And sometimes all that awesomeness actually keeps me from blogging. And that’s a whole post (or seven) to be written. But, [...]
