Welcome back, old friend.

by on Oct.31, 2017, under Blog

It’s been a while. A good friend of mine recently sparked my interest once again in blogging and talking about life. I doubt anyone will read this, but hey, if my posts from 2010 are still around, then I guess I might as well touch this every now and then. It’s fun to look back at old posts and say to myself “wow, this was me?” and then smile, because a lot of your past self is what you like to keep. At least that is my experience.

Oddly, not much has changed. I am still in the same spot doing similar technical work, but on a larger scale. Instead of doing in-home service repairs and such, I now work for a Fortune 500 company that may be shuttering it’s doors soon. I am kind of in this mindset that I am going to go down with the sinking ship, but I might be kicked off the ship before that can happen.

There have been a few times where I really just wanted to rant about something that didn’t matter to any one person in particular, but it might matter to someone. Thankfully I was able to restore this backup which should allow me to rant and rave all I need to. I’m going to try to post a ton of music, video game, and technical things in general from here on out. Let’s see if I can keep it up. It shouldn’t be an issue, I have a plethora of things to talk about. Just a fair warning, all of the posts from a few years back on here may not work properly due to some WordPress changes in the last six years..

I’ve been in to Ghost Hunters lately..

by on Oct.21, 2011, under Television

Lately, I’ve been really in to Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures. Not sure what it is, it almost seems like it is because it is October I just get this phase where I cannot stop watching them. The video above is saying that Ghost Hunters is fake, well, sure. They may be fake when they are doing live shows but that is only to keep you entertained! They need to pull you in, keep you in, and make their sponsors happy. I do not believe TAPS to be fake. Jason and Grant are hard working Ghost Investigators. They help the people who they investigate for, and they make them feel better. That’s all that matters, good people! I would love the opportunity to investigate with them.. They do such awesome places!

I am also a pretty big fan of Ghost Adventures. They seem a little more acted and over-the-top, but they also get the job done. Each one of the three “Ghost Adventurer’s” have been possessed in some way.. which is weird because that doesn’t happen on other haunt shows.

Ah well, these too may be fake and scripted sometimes, but it is still a good entertaining thrill, and definitely makes you think which parts of these may be real..

Do you drop a lot of calls?

by on Oct.21, 2011, under Mobile

It’s easy to say that your carrier drops a lot of calls, but what about you dropping your phone while carrying it? Watch the above video to see if the iPhone 4s or Samsung Galaxy S2 fares better at different heights.

Oh, and.. this isn’t the most scientific video..but it seems to be decent for every-day dropped calls 😉

Smiling Back, with Mac Miller

by on Oct.21, 2011, under Music

I’ve been watching this video (and several of Mac Miller’s videos) for a while now. This one is his most recent official music video entitled Smile Back. In Smile Back, Mac states that he is sick of everybody telling him what he is doing is wrong and that he isn’t doing it the right way. He tells everyone that he is going to do it how he want’s because he thinks that his way is the perfect way, so he is just going to go ahead and Smile Back.

Turn up the bass, sit back, turn off your brain.

Watch in fullscreen HD. Slow down for a second. The author has so graciously given us this link, http://bit.ly/bFdcsc which will replay the song endlessly. So nice of him!
