Hey y’all prepare yourself for the rubberband man

Tonight, we were watching Avengers: Infinity War, and when Rubberband Man started to play, my 9-year-old turned to his sister and said, “Do you recognize what this is?” It’s important to note, my son has never heard this song. But he now associates all music from the ’70s with the Guardians of the Galaxy. As […]

PDF Expert turns 11 years old, goes half off

If you’re in the market for a Mac app for editing PDFs, but don’t need (or want) Acrobat Pro, PDF Expert is half off to celebrate their 11th birthday. At $30, it’s a steal. It’s phenomenal, and I have clients that use it as an alternative to Acrobat Reader. You can get a free trial […]

Photogenic royalty evokes grandiose narrative after night terrors.

My wife and I have been posting a secret message to social media for the last several weeks, but to make it easier for everyone to get the message, and for the sake of having one place to point to when people ask if it’s true, here you go: If that’s not obvious for you, […]

Melodium memoriam

When I was a child, I remember listening to my father’s music and thinking that my dad must be so old to listen to music that was written so long ago: before I was even born. Now, I am 37 years old. My senior year of high school is just over half my life away. […]

One decade later…

Ten years ago, at this time, I was experiencing one of the biggest rushes of my life. No, I’m not talking about my marriage (though that’s a big one), nor the birth of my children (also up there). In fact, this rush doesn’t compare to either of those. But it’s important, because I shared it […]

Beer, fire, and the Imperial March

Finally got my grill down to the house yesterday. It’s been sitting at my parents for years and years, waiting for a home. My wife decided we should christen it with jalapeño poppers, so that’s what I’m doing. A friend of mine made a delicious English Pale Ale home brew that I opened in commemoration. […]

I know all your graces someday will flower in a sweet sunshower

It was my junior year of high school. I had just arrived at my locker for the day when my friend, Aaron, approached me. He was wearing all black. “Grunge is dead,” he said to me. “What?” I replied. “Soundgarden broke up,” he explained. “Grunge is dead.” Twenty years later, he got one step closer to […]

Today, I invented an emotion

A writer friend of mine, yesterday, asked for suggestions on drugs that could be used to render a person unconscious when taken orally, but for a relatively short period of time ( about an hour). Many friends, myself included, responded with a variety of drugs that could plausibly be used for such a purpose, especially […]

The Vanishing Game

I wrote this post months ago and never published it for whatever reason. I’m posting it now, as it’s still relevant, but it was written back in February. So, I found this pretty awesome website a couple months back, but never set aside the time to check it out. It’s a story written by William […]

Presidential Playlists

Yesterday, the Los Angeles Times posted a story containing two Spotify playlists hand-picked by President Obama. Since I don’t use Spotify, I decided I would rebuild the playlists in Apple Music so that I could listen to them there. Since I went to all that trouble, I figured I’d also share them with anyone else that […]
