Well in the battle of Bluecoat content filter versus Tumblr and it’s random images and tags the clear winner is Bluecoat. Tumblr has set off the WARNING: PORNOGRAPHY tattle-tale alert on me twice today so unfortunately I will not be viewing Tumblr at work. I hope to continue posting to Tumblr as I have time in the evenings but during lunch hours and breaks it will be moderate to...
Facebook is worthless, if you prefer real friends.– Lewis Applequist, November 2011
More of a test of Smug Mug’s ability to embed code into Tumblr than anything. I still have to admit, that for the price, Smug Mug is the best deal on the market.. especially when you shoot 100 - 600 photos per outing and want to keep them ALL until you can find time to filter through them and cull the blurry or outright horrible shots. So thanks for visiting, I do appreciate it. -spaz
What Am I [almost] Reading: The Handbook of...
Maybe I should preface this by saying I am about to start reading this book. When I flipped through it and came across.. Chapter 1: Theories of Creativity and Creative Writing Pedagogy ..well, I thought to myself, ‘maybe I shouldn’t read this?’.. understanding the basic structures of writing and the theory behind it may help some but for me it seems like so...
So, what's on Netflix tonight: Shameless (U.K.)
As usual, Netflix has been a letdown, night after night, like being stuck in the days of PBS and Channel 13, only with less variety.. and what’s left that I haven’t seen are mainly foreign films (which I often enjoy but usually don’t feel like reading on Sunday nights) or British TV shows, thank God for that.. otherwise, Netflix would lose another $7.99 a month and...
Troll: Hey douchebag! At what point did your fairly humorous Tumblr page turn into a soft porn site?
Me: I think it was two or three days ago, thanks for noticing.. please send money.
'Occupy'- Inspired Campaign Urges Boycott of...
Well, once again Fox News feel they can attach ‘Occupy’ to an article and be guaranteed a place in the middle column of The Drudge Report.. and they’re right as Matt loves the hits as much as anyone.. I enjoyed the photo more than the story.. one thing I agree with, if we really want to wake American Corporations up to their CEO’s ridiculous salaries we should Boycott...

Beer and Conversation, please?
I am in desperate need of some cold beer and some intelligent conversation.. my body is desperately lacking in both at the moment.. what to do, what to do.. I can easily handle the alcohol level increase with ease but to happen upon a soul with a depth and breadth of knowledge needed to satiate this thirst, nay, this hunger for wisdom, well.. that may be a little harder to come across on such...

This is how I feel today..
Well after taking over 5600+ photos since I purchased the D3100 I have run into a problem.. wtf to do with all of them? I have printed hundreds but others I want to archive for use with future posts, websites and/or future art projects.. I don’t like Flickr for numerous reasons and Facebook is shit for storing photos for later retrieval.. I needed a site that will not only...

2nd Cup of Coffee
Me: Hey there my beautiful-awesome-super-smart nine year old daughter, joy of my life!
Her: What do you want Dad?
Me: ((waving coffee cup at her like her name should be Flo))
Her: Dad! ((snatches said cup in a less than polite 'EAT MY GRITS!' fashion))
Me: I love you SO MUCH! *five minutes pass*
Her: Here's your coffee.
Me: Thank you, I love you.
Her: Taste it.
Me: Umm, why? What did you do to it? Did you add something weird to it? (she has before)
Her: No Dad, it's good, I promise.
Me: (pushing the point) WHAT did you put in it?
Her: Nothing I promise, it's just strong, but it's good.
Me: ((taking a small sip)) It tastes fine.. did you put less sugar in it?
Her: Nope.. it's got LOVE in it.
Me: ((damn my daughter is awesome))

A Latino man walks into a motorcycle shop..
New Girl: Welcome to SouthSide Cycles, may I help you?
Latino: Yes Ma'am, I was wondering, do you also work on four-wheelers, ATVs?

New Girl: No, I think he's Mexican.
REVOLUTION NOW.. but where?
Canadian Pacific train passing through this morning had me stopped, doing a little ‘graffiti-spotting’ I noticed, “Revolution Now”, hastily sprayed alongside a swastika on the side.. but no phone # or email address.. not even a website?? So how are trainspotting white supremecist to know when (I suppose ‘now’) and where this presumably ‘white revolution’ is to take...

If so, please post a photo, of anything.. literally anything.. you’re only limited by your creativity or lack of and the law, so no underage boobs or snuff shots.. Who has the balls/ovaries to fire the first shot? -spaz
