Overthinking It: Over-Sized Movie Construction

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love movies. I have no problem suspending my disbelief, overlooking problems, and just enjoying myself, but every now and then while watching something an idea will pop into my head, and I just gotta write it down. Which leads to this episode of "Over-Thinking It". … Continue reading Overthinking It: Over-Sized Movie Construction

The Fitness Industry is Crap

Before joining the military, my wife was a personal trainer, for years before that she was interested in fitness and health. All told, she’s been self educating and “proper” educating about fitness for almost 25 years. I’ve absorbed a lot just through association, and I can say with confidence there is really only one absolute … Continue reading The Fitness Industry is Crap

“Good Enough”….Isn’t

There are few things in the world as personally satisfying as doing something well. Conversely there are few things in the world as disappointing as doing a job poorly, when you know you could have done better.

Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

I re-watched Iron Man 2 the other day, and was thinking about the scene where Tony Stark sets up the particle accelerator in his house to invent a new element; and I was thinking about the backlash about the scene. I liked it. I am a Journeyman Cabinetmaker, Red Seal Certified; which means that (theoretically) … Continue reading Overthinking it: Tony Stark in Iron Man 2

My life is not working out how I wanted. At the beginning of the year, when I was half way to 48 years old, I went to basic training for the military. Not only was I older than all of the other recruits, I was older than most of the training staff. Not what I … Continue reading My Life is a Mess

Less Testing Does Not Mean Fewer Cases

I have read far too many news articles with quotes of officials stating "we have more cases because we have done more testing", and it is really bothering me. I've tried to ignore it, because I'm sure there are better explanations out there, from far smarter people than me; but I just can't anymore. I … Continue reading Less Testing Does Not Mean Fewer Cases

Wednesday was a bad day. Or, at least, Wednesday morning was bad. If you’ve been reading my blog you may already know I have a serious self confidence problem. Its not new, I know I have it, and usually I can deal with it, but sometimes it gets the better of me. Wednesday was one … Continue reading I Had a Bad Day

Justice League: Snyder vs Whedon

Zack Snyder (L) left directing Justice League and Joss Whedon (R) took over for him. Seems like Joss Whedon has taken a bit of a beating on social media and in the news the last few days. Most of the talk is due to hype of the Snyder Cut of Justice League being made and … Continue reading Justice League: Snyder vs Whedon

On the Importance of Music

Music is important to me. REALLY important to me. I’m not sure I could live without it. My musical tastes vary quite a bit. My iTunes has everything from classical, to heavy metal. I’ve got 80’s pop music, and modern hip-hop; Techno, and a smattering of country. I collect it everywhere, and it isn’t always … Continue reading On the Importance of Music
